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.”

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.

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.
