1. Grow some truly amazing facial hair.
2. Hang out in a place like this: The Ivy Hotel, an opulent, 18-room hotel in Baltimore created from the restored 1890s mansion of prominent industrial magnate John Gilman. It’s now taking reservations for a June opening.
This is the kind of place that probably spurred a workers’ movement or two—23 fireplaces, green marble, stained glass, carved wood. (See the slideshow.)
Sure, you could pair up a stay here with an O’s game (the hotel’s private chauffeur would be happy to take you, just as he picked you up from the train station). But you might also just want to stay put, what with the ivy-walled courtyard to hang out in, tea by the fireplace, a full library and a music room with a piano.
To say nothing of the stuff you’d expect. Like a spa on the second floor. And a restaurant called Magdalena. That’s where you can request a table in the wine cellar, the tasting room or the treasury room, where the silver and crystal were once locked up.
In case the union men came for it.
