Dishin’ With Downtown Diane
It’s Preakness Week
It’s here, Baltimore, one of the most exciting weeks of the year. Let’s hope this weather improves, and the forecast says it will. I visited Pimlico on Saturday for a few races, and excitement was already in the air and tents were already set up for this weekend. I hope to see you around town this week…perhaps at Black-Eyed Susan Day Friday. Make it a special week!
