It’s the best time of year to be a confectionary architect. Personally, I’ve never been too skilled in the European tradition of gingerbread house making, though it’s easy to appreciate the craft (as well as the ingredients, if and when the builders are willing to see their creations dismantled and devoured).

For those who haven’t started their shopping, this weekend might be a good chance to give it a try. Baltimore’s neighborhoods are adding a festive mood to finding a gift, from Federal Hill to Highlandtown. And there are plenty of makers markets in breweries, gardens and other public gathering points. Elsewhere, celebrate the Rawlings Conservatory’s 130th anniversary or don a mask for Krampuslauf in Hampden.

Event Pick: A panel on #MeToo, preceded by a concert

#MeToo stories may not dominate the headlines the way they did in 2017, but misogyny, sexual harassment, sexual assault and abuse no doubt persist despite the national attention brought to these issues a year ago.

Tonight, a group of activists, writers and artists will gather to share stories and discuss the past, present and future of the movement to end misogyny, particularly with the General Assembly gearing up for the next session in 2019.

Per the World Health Organization, 1 in 3 women will experience sexual violence in their lifetime, making tonight’s discussion incredibly relevant regardless of the shifts in media attention.

The evening also coincides with the Conservatory’s annual holiday poinsettia display, which will showcase a spectacular variety of that signature holiday flower, complete with a grand decorated tree. Tickets to this event are available for a minimum donation of $75.00 per person and can be purchased here – http://www.rawlingsconservatory.org/130th-birthday-party/. Funds raised by the event will help support to support public activities at this historic site.
