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

Would anyone know if the MD tolls are the same price if I'm using a MD Ezpass or NY Ezpass?

The Tidings bridge on I95 has signage saying $6 MD E-Zpass, $8 everyone else. I'm sure there are others but that's the only toll road I've taken in MD

Also if you go often enough, it's probably worth taking US 40 and getting a free one year pass for $28. You don't need e-zpass for that as they will give you a transponder just for that bridge if you don't have MD e-zpass

What do you mean by free one year pass?

It used to be a decal that was good for a year on the route 40 bridge. Now they give a transponder (or add it to your MD e-zpass account). You have to renew every year

It's $6 for md E-ZPass and $8 for out of state. It also adds 5-10 min to the trip

Yeah but since I already take several detours to avoid other tolls along that route I'm not sure about adding another

I'd legitimately appreciate seeing that get discussed. Tolls from NY-baltimore are a lot but a lot of the tricks to avoid them aren't worth it
