Tracy Turnblad will be back on the screen on Wednesday night, as NBC gives a John Waters classic the live musical treatment. Hairspray Live! will turn the nation’s eyes to a Hollywood set modeled after 1960s Baltimore. Here in the real Baltimore, we’ll be watching, together. Here are a few spots hosting watch parties:
Cafe Hon may be the first spot you thought of when considering where to watch. So did NBC. The network will have a live feed of the Hampden spot’s watch party starting at 7 p.m., which is being thrown by WBAL and 98 Rock. Beehives welcome.
Five and Dime Ale House, located a block from Cafe Hon, is also having a watch party at its upstairs bar. Special cocktails for the night include the Good Morning Baltimore.
Hotel Indigo is one of the downtown spots with a watch party. They have drink and dinner specials, plus live Hairspray performances to go along with Hairspray Live.
