Howard & Lex: The Way We Roll

Posted on March 21st, 2012 by

Ladies, do you remember putting on your white gloves and taking the street car downtown to go shopping at Hutzler’s, Hochschild Kohn & Co, Stewarts or the May Company? 

Gentlemen, perhaps you’ve heard your mother or grandmother talk about how wonderful it was to use their charge card, enjoy lunch in the tea room, and then have all of their newly acquired purchases delivered to their home.

2000.148.2 Hutzler's Charge Card

Did you miss Enterprising Emporiums, the Jewish Museum of Maryland’s exhibition celebrating Baltimore’s Jewish owned department stores? –Or maybe wish that we’d put it back on display?

Did Deb Weiner’s blog post about saving Read’s Drug Store and the Superblock fire up your activist spirit and inspire you to stage your own sit-in—or join the Occupy Baltimore movement? 

Do you read Gil Sandler’s articles and wish you could experience those by-gone days for yourself

Did you know that Frank Sinatra has a very important connection to Baltimore?

Is Faidley’s crabs or Berger’s Bakery your favorite stall at Lexington Market?

Have you ever wanted to just jump up and join the Mayor’s Christmas Parade? Or the St. Patty’s Day Parade?Or the Columbus Day Parade?

You can experience all of this and so much more this Saturday & Sunday and next, March 24 & 25, March 30 and April 1!

Fluid Movement will be presenting their roller show Howard &Lex: The Way We Roll at 3 PM on March 24, 25, 30 & April 1 at 228 W. Lexington Street (the old Stewart’s building, now used by Catholic Relief Services). Tickets are $5 and available at www.brownpapertickets.com. The show runs about 1 hour and it will be followed by a free walking tour of the West Side presented by Baltimore Heritage Inc. www.baltimoreheritage.inc
