Event Pick: Watch ‘Groundhog Day’ on Groundhog Day

The holiday Groundhog Day, which is today, was once just a simple little tradition where a small town in Pennsylvania pulled a groundhog from its burrow to determine how much longer the winter would last. Totally normal. But thanks to the 1993 film starring Bill Murray, Groundhog Day has become shorthand for feeling like you’re in a nightmarish, Sisyphean loop and can’t get out of it.

Baltimore Fishbowl Weekend



Get Up & Go! Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Brrrrr. What happened to that nice January thaw we were so enjoying? Oh, right. Tomorrow is February. And with February comes groundhog prognostication, shopping for red foil-wrapped chocolates, and um, a lot more cold weather. But there’s no need for the coming weeks to be a bummer. Plenty of taste-makers around Baltimore have awesome events going on all week– so get out there and make the most of the shortest month of the year.

This Thursday, the Creative Alliance and Wear it Out Baltimore will present their first ever Fashion & Film series. There will be a runway salute to the little black dress, local fashion luminaries galore, and plenty of eye candy for fashionistas and cinephiles.

Speaking of the Creative Alliance, today from 12-3 they’ve got a valentine accordion book making workshop, perfect for parents, children, and Valentine’s Day enthusiasts of all stripes.

Then, after spending the afternoon crafting with the kids, the adults can head out to Serpent Ridge Vineyard this evening (7pm-9pm) for their Wine 101 class. It’s a great way to warm up, while learning everything you ever wanted to know about wine but were afraid to ask.

If you still haven’t solidified your Groundhog Day plans, for shame! We assume you probably don’t have Arbor Day dinner reservations yet either. No problem. You can party with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation at Peabody Heights Brewery from 5:30-7:30 on February 2nd. Really. It’s a Groundhog Day Party.

Oh, right. And then there’s that Super Bowl thing. If you’d rather start your revelry well before kick-off, head to Johnny’s for their “Blowout Brunch.” With all they’re offering, you won’t even need to go near that 7-layer dip come game time.




Death for Groundhog?


Not sure if this is a joke or not, but some people in Ohio are taking Punxsutawney Phil’s spring prediction a little too seriously. Because the furry guy predicted an early spring, and it is now snowing, there is a cry of outrage coming from Cincinnati. Mike Gmoser wrote an “official looking” indictment accusing Phil of wrongly predicting the weather. Phil will apparently be charged with “misrepresentation of spring, which constitutes a felony.”
