We’re not even midway through the week yet, but Baltimore Pride is upon us, and surely some of you are ready to celebrate. Here are a couple options tonight for both partiers and those seeking a calm, reflective evening.
Locals in the former category will be happy at The Chasseur, the contemporary American bar and restaurant at the corner of Foster and S. Highland avenues in Canton. Tonight marks annual Pride kickoff celebration. The party doubles as a fundraiser for the Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Community Center of Baltimore, better known as GLCCB, and the Baltimore Pride committee, which is putting on what’s sure to be a fun bash this weekend. Tonight’s event promises drink specials, snacks, prizes and giveaways.
Those who seek a reflective and likely calmer kickoff to Pride Week on this weeknight can look to the Bolton Street Synagogue. The sanctuary on W. Cold Spring Lane is hosting an interfaith—all religions, all denominations—service for guests of whichever faith, sexual orientation or gender identity they please. A reception will follow.
In case you haven’t heard, Baltimore’s 43rd annual Pride celebration is this weekend. The lineup includes a lavish benefit at Gertrude’s, located at the Baltimore Museum of Art (paid admission) on Friday, a massive block party and parade down N. Charles Street on Saturday and a festival at Druid Hill Park on Sunday. While those are the main attractions, it’s never too early to celebrate LGBTQ freedom and equality.
Party at The Chasseur runs 7 p.m.-2 a.m., free admission, 3328 Foster Avenue, 410-327-6984, thechasseur.com. Interfaith service at Bolton Street Synagogue runs 7-10 p.m., 212 W. Cold Spring Lane, (410) 235-5354, boltonstreet.org.
