Tomorrow: Hampdenfest in Hampden

For real, Baltimore: we are excited about Hampdenfest. Like even more than Christmas. And let’s be honest here- we’re going to hang out with more friends than we ever have on Christmas. We’re going to eat more mac and cheese and bread pudding than we ever have on Christmas. We’re going to see more great bands in one day than we will in the whole month of December. And if we’re being honest here we’re probably going to get a lot drunker than we ever would on Christmas.

Plus we get to watch the Waiter Race, the Hampden Idol karaoke contest and the Toilet Bowl Races, which is a damn sight more fun than shopping mall Santas and carolers.
