Lobsterama time at Gertrude’s

Gertrude's Lobsterama

The arrival of August means it’s time for lobster at Gertrude’s!

                            John Shields at Gertrude’s


This year you can get your lobster as the “New England Meal” which includes a 1 1/4 pound Maine lobster, baked potato, coleslaw, and Maryland sweet white corn on the cob.

Or as the “Maryland-style Meal”—Shields says, this version is “gussied up a bit” because the lobster is stuffed with Maryland crab imperial.

John Shields’ award-winning restaurant, Gertrude’s is located just off the sculpture garden at the Baltimore Museum of Art.

A word to the wise, reservations are essential.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
