LeAnn Rimes' big Baltimore day off

What's a country star to do with afull day in Baltimore and no idea how to spend it? Ask her fans, of course.

LeAnn Rimes, with time to spend here after her weekend Girls With Guitars benefit concert, took to Twitter early Monday morning with the plea: "Day off in Baltimore....what to do??!!"

Apparently her first stop was breakfast at B&O American Brasserie, according to well-placed sources. She dined with her husband, Eddie Cibrian.

But Baltimore had even more ideas for what the star could do with her day.

The National Aquarium made a play for her to visit the jellies and other creatures, Tweeting, "We hear you're in our wonderful city! Welcome! Our animals and staff are big fans ;)"

A Twitter-user named Julie suggested shopping. Kathy seconded the idea for the Aquarium and thought Little Italy would be worthwhile, too.

Rimes later Tweeted, "Little Italy later for sure."

UPDATE: Yup, she did go to Little Italy.


Late Monday afternoon Rimes was STILL in Baltimore. She was spotted shopping at J Crew in Harbor East where she picked up some pajamas, a sweater and some men's flannel, and then headed over to Little Italy for dinner -- as promised.

A bit earlier in the day she Tweeted asking fans for recommendations on "great Italian" in Baltimore. Someone suggested Aldo's and that's where she went.


Her party -- apparently of three -- enjoyed a serious Italian meal that included veal meatballs, colossal lump crab cocktail, Maine lobster risotto, beef carpaccio, roasted beet salad, pollo al mattone, and spaghettoni pomodoro. They washed it all down with housemade limoncello.

Right after dinner she took to Twitter where she declared the meal "yummy yummy."

Cheers LeAnn. Hope you found the charm in Charm City.
