Date Night: St. Patricks Weekend

We have decided to start using our weekly date nights to visit all the bookstores we can in Baltimore and nearby.

Tonight, we went to Viva Books Baltimore, which we noticed on last weekend’s 5K run. From their Instagram: “Used and new bookstore in historic Brown’s Arcade at 326 N Charles Street in downtown Baltimore, Maryland.” The proprietor was knowledgable, friendly and looked like he could be Edward Gorey’s unknown brother.

We then ate at Lumbini Restaurant Baltimore and it was fantastic!

We had the Paneer tiki masala and garlic naan, fried momos, veggie samosas, and a mint chai tea that was wonderful.
