The Baltimore Seafood Festival is on for this weekend. Several other festivals have been rescheduled due to uncertainty surrounding the arrival of Hurricane Florence.

With Hurricane Florence largely out of the way, local food lovers can spend this week focused on food, not wind. That’s a good thing, too, as it’s a busy week with lots of fun events planned. A look at what to expect:

When Faith and Ted Millspaugh moved from The Orchards to Federal Hill in 2016, they did more than simply change homes. They also updated their lifestyle.

The Millspaughs closed on their new home — a two-story, 2,300-square-foot condo at the top of Federal Hill Park — in the summer of 2016. They were sold on the quiet luxury of the building, the light and the wrap-around terrace with its views of the stadiums on one side and the harbor on the other. “And the parking!” adds Faith. The condo came with two deeded parking spaces, which the Millspaughs appreciate on a daily basis.

Technically, we have a few more weeks of summer left, but with Labor Day weekend looming and college kids flooding the city, it’s starting to feel like autumn. Fortunately, the weather is cooperating, making this week a great one to head outside for dinner and drinks.

Local restaurants are making that easy, with a great lineup of outdoor events on tap this week. Here’s a look at what’s happening over the next seven days:

Restaurant Review: In Fells Point, Duck Duck Goose makes fine dining fun, with a few caveats

0

Can fine dining be fun?

Duck Duck Goose, a French brasserie that opened in Fells Point earlier this summer, makes a pretty good case that it’s possible. Though the menu is elegant and the kitchen, helmed by owner and executive chef Ashish Alfred, obviously takes food seriously, the Duck Duck Goose vibe is more festive than reverential–and that is a good thing.
