Every year around this time, the Baltimore Architecture Foundation hosts a golf tournament at one of the private clubs in the area, and every year, we also host a Concourse d’Elegance – or an antique/vintage car exhibition.
We thought it would be fun to invoke the game’s birthplace and so hired a bagpiper to call the players from lunch to their carts.Everyone thought that it was a fun idea, and the piping certainly got their attention.
We had cars ranging from the 1920’s Cadillac to a 2012 electric car – one of the new Mitsubishis. In the interest of science and experimentation, I did have to try one of the club’s signature Southsides. Personally, I think that the colour is a bit garish, and in addition to the Mt. Gay rum in the drink, they float a bit of Myers rum on the top, which leaves an unattractive brown slick, which I declined.
