100 things we love about Baltimore [Pictures]
A moody tavern. An extraordinary cocktail. The easy lapping of bay water against the banks of the Inner Harbor. Duckpin lanes. Old Bay. Art in an otherwise empty storefront. For all of these things, and for so many more, people love Baltimore. People feel how they feel about this place for their own reasons. It's personal and not necessarily explainable. Something between them and the city. But in the spirit of sharing the love, we asked some of the city's best-known personalities to reveal something that makes them fall for Baltimore. Take this list as personal suggestions, from one neighbor to another.

Lisa Gladden: Kings Point Bowling Alley( Jonathan Hanson, Patuxent Publishing / April 7, 2008 )
Lisa Gladden, state senator and public defender
"I love Baltimore because I can talk about my bowling average and people won't laugh at me. I haven't bowled in three or four years because I've been so darn busy, but I have a solid 170, 180 average. I threw out the first ball for some bowling fundraiser, and the first two balls went into the gutter. That was because I was using a house ball and house shoes. But the third ball was a strike. Because I'm a bowler, and proud of it." 4111 Deer Park Road, Randallstown | 410-521-5300 | amf.com/kingspointlanes
