With so many purchases being made online these days, it’s getting harder for brick and mortar retailers to hold onto customers, even in the busier season. Many Baltimore neighborhoods are making the extra effort to push for local holiday shopping this year, by offering inventive perks like happy hours, caroling, or even a cookie crawl. Rather than sitting alone on an office computer to do your shopping this year, shoppers are taking advantage of the chance to see holiday shopping as an event, or fulfilling experience, rather than just a chore.

Bar Vasquez, the Argentine restaurant from the Foreman Wolf restaurant group, just opened a couple weeks ago, but the celebrated team behind the new spot is wasting no time diving into the world of charitable fundraising.
An event benefitting YouthWorks, is set for Sunday, November 13, starting at 3 p.m. The late afternoon party will feature hors d’oeuvres and food stations, an open bar and a silent auction, plus live music by Pavel Urkiza & Co. Tickets are $125 per person or $250 for VIP, which includes access to the Mezzanine space, plus a full whiskey bar and dinner.
YouthWorks is Baltimore City’s summer jobs program for youth and young adults aged 14 to 21. It is operated through the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, which coordinates with employers in a variety of industries, including healthcare, hospitality, finance, construction, the arts and environmental jobs.
In 2015 and 2016, the program offered five-week summer jobs to over 8,000 youths and young adults.
