Where to Drink on Inauguration Day 2017 in Baltimore

by Jennifer Waldera on Jan 18, 2017 in Roundups

We’re not sure whether to categorize the inauguration on January 20 as the final drinking holiday of this Presidential election season or as the commencement of four years of drink-worthy occasions (for good or for bad), but we do know that there are plenty of bars offering up the opportunity to swill suds and grab shots as the 45th President takes office on Friday.
