Winter Restaurant Week: January 13 – 22, 2017
Shake off those winter blues and reserve your seat in Harbor East for Baltimore Restaurant Week, presented by the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore and Visit Baltimore.
Less than two weeks into 2017, Baltimore restaurateurs seem to have recovered from the busy holiday season. This week brings tons of new restaurant opening news, several excellent events, and the beginning of Baltimore Winter Restaurant week.
Here’s a look at what’s happening in and around town over the next few days:
Baltimore Restaurant Week kicks off Friday, July 22 and runs through Sunday, July 31, providing brunch, lunch, and dinner prix fixe menus at participating restaurants. Throughout the much-anticipated ten-day event (the region’s oldest and largest promotion of its kind) diners will enjoy innovative offerings from Downtown Baltimore’s burgeoning food scene—one that now includes award winning chefs and exceptional accolades from Zagat.
Who says Valentine’s Day is for couples only? Let Harbor East show you some amour as we surprise our patrons with random acts of kindness starting Monday, February 8 through Sunday, February 14. We’ll be “love-bombing” patrons with everything from sweet treats and wine, to gift cards from Harbor East merchants. Follow us on Instagram for a sweet week of giveaways! Dining out in Harbor East for Valentine’s Eve? We’ll also be treating randomly selected tables to a bottle of bubbles, on us, as our thanks for making Harbor East your destination for life’s most special moments. XOXO <3

Carrot Cake Day
Wednesday, February 3, 5-10PM
Enjoy homemade carrot cake and carrot cake inspired cocktails on special from 5-10PM. Carrot Cake has been made since the Middle Ages, when sugar and other sweeteners were rare and very expensive, and so people used sweet vegetables to flavor their puddings. During World War II, the British government rationed many luxury foods and household staples including sugar. To appease the nation’s sweet tooth, the Ministry of Food promoted recipes for carrot puddings, carrot-filled pies, and carrot cakes. Today, many families in the UK still serve carrot cake on Christmas Day!
Leap Year Day
Monday, February 29
Our team will craft the original Leap year cocktail for you as we prepare ourselves for another 4 years of hectic madness. Depending on how you calculate it, the Leap Year cocktail either turned 86 this year — or is just embarking on its 20s. The exact date this drink was invented is documented in the Savoy Cocktail Book, bartender Harry Craddock’s popular mixing manual, first published in 1930. This blend of gin, orange liqueur, lemon, and sweet vermouth was born on Leap Day, 1928.
Craddock noted that the drink was “said to have been responsible for more [marriage] proposals than any other cocktail that has ever been mixed.” That’s quite a claim, although it’s hard to know from Craddock’s blurb whether all that Leap Year-fueled question-popping resulted in engagements.
