There’s always fabulous shopping and dining to be had in Harbor East. And what better time than the holidays? But now that we’ve gotten our hands on the neighborhood’s holiday event calendar, it seems like we might just have to camp out down there for the next few weeks. Sure it might get a bit cold, but we’ll stay warm with hot chocolate happy hours, our new winter duds courtesy of Harbor East’s chic boutiques, and maybe a little body heat from Santa.
If you’re planning only a few trips down to the harbor, be sure to bring the whole family, and check out the second annual Window Wonderland holiday arts exhibit. Various shops and restaurants around the neighborhood will feature unique holiday windows designed by some of the Baltimore area’s most talented local artists, turning Harbor East into a merry masterpiece for the holiday season! Join Harbor East And MAP (Maryland Art Place) for The Unveiling Event on Thursday, December 5th from 5:30PM-8:30PM; and carolers, stilt walkers and entertainers will fill the streets with holiday cheer all evening long. Indoors, you can enjoy complimentary refreshments including wine & cheese, sparkling cider, and holiday cookies along with the second annual “Milk & Cookies Social” sponsored by Harbor East and (cool) progeny! From 5:30PM-7:30PM during the Window Wonderland unveiling, The Maryland Athletic Club (The MAC) Harbor East will transform into a holiday workshop offering kids crafts and activities.
On Tuesdays this month, be sure to catch at least one Hot Chocolate Happy Hour. From 5:30PM-7:30PM on 10th and 17th swing by the Whole Foods sponsored “bar” on Aliceanna Street (between S. Exeter and S. President Streets). And finally, make sure your pet gets on the “Nice” list, by bringing Fluffy down to pose with Santa on December 15th. From 1pm-4pm, you can get a complimentary pet photo with Santa, and some treats for your furry friend as a reward for them sitting so perfectly still for the photo op. Sure, your pooch might not be guiding-a-sleigh material, but doesn’t he still make the holiday season that much brighter?
