A trio of women-owned Baltimore shops have joined forces in Harbor East with a unified store for all your plant, furniture and home-decorating needs. The pop-up shop, which sports the name Homegrown Baltimore, officially opens today on Aliceanna Street in Harbor East, bringing some made-in-Baltimore flavor to the luxury neighborhood.
Event Pick: The launch of Nonument 01, an app that virtually resurrects the erased McKeldin Fountain
Thanks to a visionary team of artists, developers and architects, the Brutalist fountain that dominated the Inner Harbor’s McKeldin Plaza for more than three decades is back—so long as you have the app.
While you weren’t looking, a new coffee shop was born in March on W. Preston Street in Mount Vernon. Tooth N’ Nail isn’t of the sleek, modern variety, opting instead for a laid-back ’90s vibe and, per a description on its Facebook page, an aim of “hearkening back to the old days when they were community spaces for artists, students and local people to gather.”
Weekend Events Calendar: Preakness Stakes, Ta-Nehisi Coates at the BMA, a vintage expo, the Artubus Arts Festival and more
All eyes are on Old Hilltop, as the Preakness Stakes brings lots of visitors to town for the weekend’s largest draw. But don’t sleep on chances to get out for a farmer’s market kickoff, birding or a bike tour of West Baltimore.
Note: With all the inclement weather expected this weekend, please check with the venue for any scheduling changes.
Apparently we’re in for yet another damp day at Old Hilltop for the Preakness. But that shouldn’t stop people from enjoying the second jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown, and the party gets started tonight at the Mt. Washington Tavern.
Baltimore isn’t necessarily though of as a hockey town, seeing as how we don’t have a team and all, but there’s a surprisingly strong amount of support here for the closest NHL franchise, the Washington Capitals.
Every day is a good day to drink locally made craft beer, but the Brewers Association trade group has dubbed this American Craft Beer Week, so there’s a little added incentive. And there’s no better place to dabble in the best offerings from around the country (and the world) than Max’s Taphouse, home to one of the best selections anywhere.
