Weather policy

For the safety of our customers and staff, we will close temporarily if there is rain heavy enough to affect visibility, strong wind, thunder, or lightning. We will make every attempt to reopen later in the day if it looks like the weather will pass quickly. This is often the case during summer storms.

We will stay open through periods of clouds and light rain without accompanying wind or electrical activity.

If the Baltimore City Health Department issues a Code Red Extreme Heat Alert we will delay opening until 4pm.

We do not issue weather-related refunds!
