Baltimore’s restaurants and bars (and their loyal patrons) are taking advantage of the snow day. Since you may be growing restless watching the snow pile up, we’ve rounded up a thorough list of drink and food specials happening today around the city.
Wide receiver Torrey Smith doesn’t play for the Baltimore Ravens anymore, but his connections to the city run deep. As he told the Ravens’ website in 2017: “Our roots in the community are bigger than football. I meet people here and they feel like I’m their nephew or their grandson or something. I don’t know why it is. I can’t really explain it. It’s always been amazing, and it’s home for us.”
The Maryland Institute College of Art is celebrating the opening of its new, expanded school store by inviting young artists with the Jubilee Arts’ Youth in Business program to discuss their wares and offering special discounts on locally made goods.
Bar crawls typically involve a stroll, and then later a stumble, through a particular neighborhood or along a certain street. Ridemore Mass Transit, whose purpose is just as the name sounds, and Wine.Dine.Repeat have plotted a boozy journey through the heart of central Baltimore using the city’s free bus, the Charm City Circulator. It’ll start in Remington and end at Federal Hill, using the Purple Line to go from one to the other and two stops in between.
As Patterson Park has shown us, even an alley can be fully beautified with the right tools. Tonight, local nonprofit Blue Water Baltimore will kick off a series of workshops teaching city residents how to make their neighborhoods’ storm drains come to life in a visually appealing and educational way.
Look, I know Baltimore Fishbowl just endorsed the incredible exhibit of quilts by artist Stephen Towns at the Baltimore Museum of Art, but we’re here to tell you there’s even more incredible quilt work you need to see.
In honor of Noah Scialom, the Baltimore photographer who took his own life in January, local filmmaker Matt Porterfield and photographer M. Holden Warren are co-hosting an event they say was Holden and Scialom’s brainchild. Other photogs, filmmakers and creatives are invited to stand up for 15 minutes to discuss their work, kind of like an open mic for artists, and receive feedback. Be sure whatever you’re sharing is on a USB drive, Mac-friendly hard drive or laptop.
The Greater Remington Improvement Association is throwing a festival this spring to celebrate the North Baltimore neighborhood’s 100-year history and recent resurgence.
