Giant Flamingo

Seriously, how has no one ever pointed this out to me before? Who’s been to Baltimore and seen this giant flamingo at Cafe Hon?

Along the lines of all things giant, one of my favorite places to browse is the Vintage Roadside blog. Currently the blog writers (the owners of Vintage Roadside – an online gift shop and history site – are road tripping to the National Trust for Historic Preservation conference, which makes their trip from Portland, OR to Nashville, TN. No matter where they travel, they find the best roadside architecture particularly of neon signs, vintage motels, roadside attractions, and the like. Not only that, but they often can identify everything they see and share. Check out the blog for a good road trip or check out flickr for some great photographs.

    I used to live less than 5 minutes away from Cafe Hon’s giant flamingo. Their BLT, by the way? To *die* for.

    I didn’t see this during our recent trip to Baltimore, but I did see it soon after we returned in a New York Times “36 Hours in Baltimore” feature. And I thought of you (as I will forever more when I see pink flamingos).

Have a thought to share?
