The Olde Malt Shop, Baltimore

Right in my neighborhood in Baltimore, I wandered into this malt shop and ice cream parlor and grabbed a frosty chocolate mslted milk shake.
The place is called The Olde Malt Shop/Earl's Beauty Inn, and I ended up chatting with one of the place's owners. He mentioned their place has been on Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels, and that the place originated as a pharmacy, but has been an ice cream place since the 1940's. The decor is pretty classic with all these knicknacks all over the walls and shelves. I sat in a great old wooden booth to have my shake. Reviewing the menu, I saw that they also have snowballs, egg cremes, floats and sundaes as well as hot dogs and burgers.
