A Roundup of Baltimore’s Best Valentine Cards

1

Gone are the days when we made valentines in school out of paper plates and doilies, relishing guilt-free in the seemingly unlimited craft supplies, and handing out democratically the finished product to everyone we knew. Sure we might celebrate with friends, or secretly hope for a homemade card from the kids, but let’s face it: We are adults now, by golly, and we usually have to narrow it down to one special valentine these days. We all know to book the reservations in advance, and pick up the flowers, but who has time to make a card? Still, nothing says “I love you” quite like that timeless tradition of writing those exact words. 

Baltimore Fishbowl Weekend

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.
