Fells Point Fun Fest


fells point

catch of the day fish (2)Fells Point is always fun, but one weekend a year, it is especially fun. Or at least the neighborhood marks the weekend with a giant festival, the Fells Point Fun Fest, where everyone goes out, seamen style. With its focus on celebrating Fells Point’s maritime history, the festival includes dock tours and the opportunity to take a day sail on the Pride of Baltimore II. All “funlubbers”—as the festival organizers put it—can also enjoy entertainment throughout the neighborhood, including old fashioned magic by Eric Henning as well as performances by jugglers and absolutely astounding hula-hoopers. But wait, there’s more!

But after the beauty that was Toki-fact at Artifact Coffee back in January (I happily stood in lines around the place…) I had to see the place that had inspired Spike to partner up on that delicious pop-up.

Nice Job, Towson U: Your New President is Fun


Serving as the president of a college involves taking on a number of roles — relating to students, reassuring trustees, leading faculty, wooing donors — but rarely do college presidents actually slather on the stage makeup and get in costume. Which is why we got excited when we heard that Towson University’s new president Maravene Loeschke plans on celebrating her inauguration by getting on stage for a one-time performance (with her husband as co-star!) of Love Letters, a play that traces two characters’ relationship from second grade through marriage, divorce, and old age.
