Hot Plate: Memorial Day weekend festivities, Sunday Funday events, beer and cocktail dinners

Rusty Scupper will offer a Sunday Funday menu and have live music on its topside deck all summer long.

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and with it, local restaurants and bars are planning fun events that celebrate the sunshine. Here’s a look at what’s happening around town this weekend and all week long.

Hot Plate: CREAM at Union Craft Brewing, Wine Dinners Everywhere

Wit & Wisdom Chef Zack Mills will cook a four-course dinner at The Vineyards in Dodon on Thursday.

With rain in the forecast, Baltimoreans might not need to break out the sunscreen this weekend. But there’s still a lot to celebrate now that summer is – unofficially, at least – on the horizon.

Here’s a look at what local restaurants have planned for Memorial Day weekend and the rest of the week:

Get Up & Go! Ah, Memorial Day!



Sometimes it seems like Memorial Day weekend is one of those things we wait around all year for. Sure, we’ve had plenty of nice weather already; maybe you’ve even squeezed in a trip to Bethany Beach or two so far. But truly, Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of all things summer. From here on out it’s non-stop barbecues, beaches, and snow balls.  And plenty of great festivals, too.

Start off your weekend with today’s Baltimore Herb Festival. Celebrate savory (the Herb of the Year) and enjoy live music, lectures, and the wonderful weather.

Tomorrow, head down to SoWeBo for the SoWeBo Arts Festival. This festival, now in its 31st year, offers plenty for kids and families, including arts, crafts, food, and more!

Also happening on Sunday is the Festival of India, which includes a parade that kicks off at the Science Center. The perfect excuse to spend some time down at the harbor this weekend!

All weekend long at the Creative Alliance, you can catch the Baltimore Rock Opera Society‘s latest: the 6-Pack. It’s six one-act rock operas brought to you by the people who usually bring you  one mind-melting epic per year.

And if you’re looking for somewhere (in town) to take the kids on Memorial Day, Port Discovery will be offering a whole host of family activities from 10am -5pm. Have a blast!
