We admit it. We didn’t actually know that Baltimore had a birthday. But that doesn’t mean we’re not extraordinarily excited to celebrate the birth of our great city, 286 years ago. And we couldn’t be happier that the folks at Live Baltimore have put together the social event of the season with just that purpose in mind– the first annual “Baltimore’s Birthday Bash.” It’s a party that will bring 250 of Baltimore’s most passionate residents together at at the World Trade Center’s “Top of the World” on Thursday, July 30th. You could, of course, be one of them, if you get your tickets early. And why wouldn’t you? Not only will there be spectacular views, but also live music, food, wine, brews, and specially designed birthday cakes from chefs at Dooby’s, Cinghiale, and Fleet Street Kitchen. Exclusive “birthday gifts” will be raffled off throughout the evening—and while sure, it’s all about the fun and the food, it’s also all for a great cause.
Live Baltimore has long been committed to promoting the benefits of Baltimore City living. They’re that awesome organization that’s always popping up to help you figure out which neighborhood is the best for your family, or how you can snag a tax credit to help make buying a home more affordable. Each year, though a variety of great events, Live Baltimore provides thousands of Baltimore residents (and potential residents) with information on the city’s 250+ neighborhoods, rental living options, homebuying incentive programs, historic tax credits, and more. In 2014 alone, Live Baltimore helped to facilitate $94.8 million in home sales, across 119 distinct city neighborhoods. That’s a whole lot of work they’re doing on the ground, on behalf of this great place we call home. And at the ripe old age of 286, we kind of think our city deserves it.
Baltimore’s Birthday Bash will be held Thursday, July 30 from 6 – 9 p.m at The World Trade Center’s “Top of the World” (401 East Pratt Street in Baltimore). Tickets are $65 per person, and advance purchase is required. For more information, visit www.livebaltimore.com.
