CHUCK BROWN — The Godfather of Go-Go, a pioneer in D.C. music, died a year ago yesterday. Here's a map of all of the spots in D.C. that have memorialized him either by adding his name to the location or by painting him onto the walls.

BALTIMORE RAVENS — This over-the-top mansion outside of Baltimore includes lots of intricate looking furniture, a dual Von Trapp looking staircase and a mini shrine to Baltimore Ravens' retired linebacker Ray Lewis near one of the three wet bars.
