It’s official: the totally charming shopping and dining awesomeness of The Avenue in Hampden is unabashedly spilling out through the neighborhood, particularly down Chestnut Ave. Several new businesses popped up this summer (including The Charmery and Bazaar), with more on the way (like the oh-so-hotly-anticipated Paulie Gee’s Pizzeria that should be coming any day). Only a week or so ago, Mono Azul, a new children’s boutique opened its doors on Chestnut—offering both new and gently used children’s clothing, for newborns to 10 year-olds.
After last year’s devastating fire at the Mt. Washington Tavern, co-owners Dave Litchty and Rob Frisch can proudly announce that they have overcome the odds and reopened their doors to the public. While they had their soft opening earlier this month, their Grand Reopening is this Wednesday, November 21st starting at 8:00pm. It has been a long, arduous year for co-owners Lichty and Frisch, so join us in commemorating this momentous occasion with them. Begin your Thanksgiving celebrations a day early by celebrating the return of this neighborhood treasure.
From the owners:
At this grand re-opening party, the Tavern will provide drink specials and showcase its new, updated menu, along with the re-design of the restaurant. Highlights of the re-design include a new flow to the building; a seasonal deck adjacent to the Sky Bar; a more accessible dining room and bar space; Chesapeake Bay-inspired artwork; bar areas that will pay homage to horse racing, lacrosse and other local sport passions; and the return of the shuffleboard table.
For far the past two years, Baltimore has had a void. While we’ve been able to enjoy a good landscape or religious portrait, or even the Kinetic Sculpture Race, we’ve been forced to travel to far-off museums in DC or Philly for a solidly curated contemporary collection. Come Sunday, the void will be filled.
The BaltimoreMuseum of Art (BMA) is reopening its contemporary wing this Sunday, November 18 after a two-year renovation project. The new wing has three new exhibitions, two interactive galleries, sound and moving image works, a black box gallery, and the new BMA Go Mobile interactive art guide app. The installations include a wide range of artists from masters such as Warhol and Rauschenberg, to newer emerging artists on the contemporary scene.
The Grand Opening takes place on Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and includes various performances and activities for the entire family. If you prefer something for a date night, consider coming Saturday night, November 17 to the BMA Late Night at 9:00 p.m. White Life and Tim Nohe will be providing music, there will be collaborative art-making projects designed by renowned sculptor Maren Hassinger, and discussions led by BMA staff to give you fresh perspectives on new exhibits. Light fare and a cash bar will be on the premises, so come celebrate in style this momentous occasion for the Baltimore arts scene.
