Best Place to Get Dressed Up and Trashed

Brunch at Gertrude’s

Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Dr., (410) 889-3399, johnshields.com/restaurant/rest/gertrudes.html

Something about the public art, jazz on the weekends, and crisp white table linens transports you into feeling like you’re in a scene from Holiday with Hepburn and Grant during a Gertrude’s brunch. After a few of its signature cocktails, though, you’re more like Hepburn and Stewart in The Philadelphia Story, falling on servers, kissing strangers, and waltzing with water fountains. Either way you can pretend you’re in a classic Hollywood glamour movie, so relax and enjoy. Just remember to take a taxi home and try to fight the urge to impress the rich WASPs at the next table with the old “fold a napkin so it looks like a bra” trick.
