Dan's TR on DD

Mochjas TR

DDF DO Planning Thread

Seven Mile Market - supposedly the largest kosher supermarket in the country.

Market Maven (formerly Seasons) - great prices for meat and chicken, also good place for shabbos food


Hotels:
Only 1 Close and decent hotel to Jewish area (but not quite walking distance) is this Hilton Doubletree

Otherwise, there are a number of nice hotels downtown (which is also the inner harbor area) and near BWI airport. There are no shuls in the downtown area with regular minyanim, aside from Mincha minyanim in various offices.



Restaurants in the Jewish area (in no particular order):

Dairy

Dunkin Donuts - 2 kosher locations
Here and Here

Coffee Bean - 1 kosher location
Here

Sapori - sit-down Italian place

Milk & Honey Bistro - dairy homestyle cooking

Goldberg's Bagels - very good bagels and free wifi. Pikesville location is the one in the Jewish area

Mama Leah's - pizza that is a bit different, but IMHO (Lunatic), the best pizza in Baltimore

Tov Pizza - classic pizza shop - Mocha thinks this is a hell of a lot better than ^

Caramel's - pizza shop, also has sushi

Chef Dan's Cafe - located inside the JCC

Cocoaccinos - cafe with sandwiches and salads

Any way to get a discount on the Aquarium?

A member can buy guest tickets for $32 instead of 40. Just need to call it in ahead of time and prepay so you can pick it up from the member desk, no need to go with the member.

Is there a place near the Jewish community to stay for Shabbos?
 The bnb posted last page isn't available.
Thank you

If you're looking for hotels then not really. technically there are some within walking distance but nothing really within the community. Unless you find an Air Bnb

The closest hotel would be the Howard Johnsons on Reisterstown Road near Milford Mill.

https://goo.gl/maps/xP5x5UdCkvZRz8is9

The closest shul would be Beit Yaakov https://beityaakov.com/. I am not sure if Sterling Care next door also has a Shabbos minyan

I do believe there is a crashpad for meshulachim on the top of Machzekei Torah which is more centrally located but that would probably be unsuitable for a family

I am not sure if Howard Johnsons is suitable for a family, it looks pretty sketchy. Best place is the double tree in the wiki, but its not close to the community

If you're up for a little walk you could walk from there to Ner Yisroel or TA. probably 30-40 minutes to either one

Once your doing that stay by the Hilton DoubleTree or one of those hotels near the 695 and walk to Ner Yisroel for the Tefilos. Much eaiser walk.
