Oh, Mamie's, you had us at hello.
From the moment we walked in, we fell in love with the 1940s Baltimore elementary school pictures on the walls, the wedding certificates, the baptism announcements, all proudly advertising your deep Baltimore roots. We adore your home-style menu of roast chicken, pot roast, meatloaf and pork chops. We can even forgive your new surroundings, in an impersonal Aberdeen shopping center. We know that you can take Mamie's out of Hampden, but you can't take the essential Hampden-ness out of Mamie's.
