Janet Trimble leads a veritable hon dynasty. Born and raised in Hampden, the 65-year-old Trimble says she is "definitely" a hon, and has been all her life. And what's more, she's got two more generations of hons backing her up. "A hon means a Baltimore hard-working woman," says Trimble, a waitress at Cafe Hon since it opened in 1992, a former Baltimore's Best Hon herself (in 2001) and now a judge in the annual contest. "You worked all your life, you're a hon. You raised your children with a bunch of pride."
