catch of the day fish (2)This is Baltimore’s “soiree for the stylish.” It’s the fashion event of the season and it’s happening tomorrow. It’s FashonEASTa, and it’s the day when Baltimore’s hottest shopping destination (that’s Harbor East) transforms into an all-out celebration of style– complete with in-store specials and fashion events, live entertainment, cocktails, small bites, and of course a runway showcasing the hottest looks of the season. Oh, and did we mention there’s a guest model? That’s right, the Ravens’ own Justin Tucker will be struttin’ it down the runway as the year’s special guest– just to show how fabulous this event truly is.

Louder Than a Bomb Baltimore

LTAB FLYER FRONT

catch of the day fish (2)It would be easy to crack jokes about how appropriate it is to call an event that brings together a large group of teenagers “Louder Than a Bomb.” After all, if you’ve ever lived with one teenager (let alone, a swarm of them) you know that sound is a real thing– and yes, it does have power (for better or worse). On the “for better” side of things: Louder than a Bomb Baltimore. This rapidly growing teen poetry festival will take place this year at MICA from April 23-26th.

Mother’s Day Tea at Mount Clare Museum House

catch of the day fish (2)Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day plans. Sure, it’s still a few weeks away, but don’t let the holiday sneak up and catch you unawares with nary a brunch reservation in sight. If your same old spots are feeling a little worn out this year, maybe it’s time to take Mother’s Day back even further than your own family traditions. In fact, maybe you should take it all the way back to 1760, when the Mount Clare House was built. This gorgeous example of colonial architecture was the state’s first museum house, and they host a delightful array of events for families and curious history-oriented visitors each month. And for Mother’s Day this year, they’ll be hosting an afternoon tea fit for a queen (or mom).

Flux at Baltimore Theatre Project

Deep Vision Dance Company

catch of the day fish (2)Nothing is static. We are ever changing. That’s the premise behind this new evening of work from Deep Vision Dance Company, which will run at the Baltimore Theatre Project next weekend. The company, founded in 2011 under the artistic direction of Nicole A. Martinell focuses on work that explores emotional complexity and what Martinell calls the “strange beauty of the world around us.” Ranging from abstract to narrative work, Martinell’s choreography illustrates opposing ends of a continuum – an unfolding journey characterized by detailed characters, spiraling phrases, and a continuous ebb and flow of space. That, and it’s mesmerizing to watch.

Crafts show

catch of the day fish (2)Once again, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival is bringing some of the best American artists and artisans to the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. For the weekend of April 24-26, you can stroll the fairgrounds and stock up on unique handmade gifts in anticipation of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, and weddings. And of course, you can always just shop for yourself. And while the craft show features work by artists from all over the country, a number of Baltimore area artists will be present, as well. Look for 3Clothing by Nikki Gordon, clay monsters by Cat Holt, and great jewelry from Mary DeMarco-Wolfe.

Lily Tomlin at Night of the Stars

NOTS 2015 Lily Tomlin Photo

catch of the day fish (2)We’ve got some pretty amazing local talent here in Baltimore, and on the whole, it’s enough to keep us satisfied all year round. Our homegrown music, theater, comedy and art have gained national recognition in recent years– and for good reason. But we’re also lucky enough to be a destination for performers and artists of international renown– and every so often, it’s an act that we’d camp out overnight to get tickets to. Such is Lily Tomlin— the pioneering comedian and actor who Newsweek says “made the one-person show the daring, irreverent art form it is today.” She’s all that and more, and she’ll be in town for one night only– so do not miss your chance.

Juice Packs To Go from Plantbar

catch of the day fish (2)Is the warm weather starting to turn your mind toward summer fitness? Now that the buds are budding and spring is here, many of us are crawling out of our winter hibernation shells to find we’ve lost a bit of that healthy glow we had once upon a time. It could be the fact that most of our skin hasn’t seen the sun in many months. Or that we stocked up on clearance Valentine’s Day and Easter candy and have been dutifully working through it (oops). Or that it’s just that much harder to make it to the gym when the roads are covered in ice, and the Snuggie calls. Fair enough. But now it’s time to get your head back in the game. One super quick (and delicious) health fix you can bet on? Fresh pressed juice 6-packs from Pantbar.

Mind Body Celebrates 15 Years in Mt. Washington

catch of the day fish (2)Nothing we love more than a locally owned business that is thriving simply by helping Baltimoreans themselves thrive. And thriving for the long term is what Mind Body Physical Therapy and Pilates studio seems to be doing as they celebrate their 15th anniversary this month. While so many of Mind Body’s clients are saying “thank you” for restored and renewed health and vitality, the studio itself is saying thank you to the community with featured classes, packaged specials and Physical Therapy promotions throughout the month of April.

Music from the Sole at the Creative Alliance

catch of the day fish (2)It’s not everyday that Baltimore is host to a world premiere by internationally renowned artists. But leave it to the Creative Alliance to bring us some of the most energetic and unique performance out there– well before it hits the bigger stages of New York. This weekend, Brazilian-born tap phenom’ Leonardo (Leo) Sandoval and American bassist Gregory Richardson will perform their new collaborative work, “Music from the Sole.” It’s a work born from their experience together as street performers in New York City, drawing on a variety of influences.

It’s National Beer Day!

COTD

catch of the day fish (2)Just when you thought the spring holiday push was over, turns out it’s National Beer Day. Alas. And while you probably don’t need to order anyone flowers or write out any cards, it wouldn’t be proper to just let the day go by without any ceremony at all, would it? Luckily, Baltimore is a perfectly easy place to celebrate (and imbibe) beer of all kinds. Whether you’re going for a fine craft microbrew, or our beloved (or at least ubiquitous) Natty Boh, this city has you covered. So tonight make sure to stop by your local brewery (or liquor store) on your way home and pick up just enough to crack open to mark this important day.
