Most Charm City cinephiles and booze hounds can boast a John Waters encounter story. Start hanging out at The Charles Theatre, Club Charles, Rocket to Venus or any of the director's favorite haunts and strike up a conversation if you spot him. While you might not become fast friends, you'll probably have a brief exchange, and, depending on the circumstances, you might even score an autograph or a picture. Just be cool about it; you're still in Baltimore.
