[quote]How is as a concert venue by the way? [/quote]Never been to it when it was set up for a show that was meant to be stadium sized, so I can't say for sure. I will say that the Olympic celebration had several musical acts (James Brown, Gladys Knight, Alabama) and the acoustics were horrible. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Fort McHenry is pretty cool - although the original flag is in the Smithsonian, seeing the place that inspired Key to write The Star Spangled Banner is a great piece of American history. The B&O Railroad museum was nice when we went, but that was 20+ years ago, not sure if it is even still there ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Kinison stole the movie with that sequence. I also loved Rodney when he walks into the shower and the co-ed is in there. He closes the curtain, tells her "Don't worry honey, I didn't see anything." He then pulls it open again and says "You're perfect!"...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: How Would The World Look If Romney Had Won? - PJinAtl on 7/22/16 at 2:08 pm
If Romney had won in 2012, you wouldn't see Obama running again. Now if McCain had beaten him in 2008, yes he would have tried to come back in either the 2012 or 2016 primary, but even as arrogant and legacy hungry as Obama is, I don't see him president for four years, losing and then coming back fo...

Lots of good suggestions already mentioned. I will add: Take a boat out to Fort Sumter. It is interesting if you are into history. There is a boat dock for the tour boats at Patriots Point, so you can do both right there together. The Aquarium is pretty nice too. If you go see the angel oak...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
