Trivia nights are a dime a dozen, but it’s still fun to reach back for a random factoid or obscure piece of knowledge. Tonight, you can utilize your memory bank of useless things for a good cause at Peabody Heights Brewery, where proceeds from tonight’s trivia night will benefit the staff of Charles Village Pub. The popular bar was recently closed due to a grease fire, and many staff members are currently without work.

On this last weekend of April, head to the country for the great Maryland tradition of steeplechase racing, pick out a gift for Mom at one of several markets or festivals, or catch some bluegrass at Druid Hill Park.
With spring weather upon us, there’s really no reason not to hit every steeplechase race of the season. And since every steeplechase presents its own unique course of obstacles, each one offers an exciting and unpredictable race. But few can rival the tradition and challenge of the Maryland Hunt Cup.
Imagine it’s the late 1800s. Entertainment and sport were quite a bit different than they were today. If you weren’t hunting foxes or quail, you were probably racing your well-trained horse across miles of lush, green fields.
