Get Up & Go! Holiday Weekend Happenings

0

Weekend

Happy July 4th, Baltimore. Whether you’re celebrating around the grill or at Bethany Beach, we hope you have a fantastic holiday. Here are just a few ways you can take it in, Maryland style.

If you hop out of bed now, you can probably make it down to AVAM’s annual 4th of July Pet Parade. What makes a more appropriately quirky Baltimore tradition than watching dogs, cats, and anything else you can dress in a tutu strut their stuff with absolutely no relationship to the meaning of the holiday itself? The parade kicks off at 10am, but surely the revelry and cuteness will continue longer than that.

Also happening today is a traditional country fair to celebrate the reopening of the Washington Monument. There will be music and food, beer and oysters, and lots of Baltimore love. This is a celebration not to be missed. So don’t miss it! The festival goes until 5pm.

At Charleston’s in Harbor East, Chef Wolf has cooked up a special July 4th menu. It features seasonal favorites, and is a great place to start off your night before stepping out to watch the fireworks. So for those not looking forward to scraping off the grill and shooing away the mosquitos, this may just be your ticket.

For fun for the whole family, head down to Port Discovery and enjoy the Fazafam Family Jam. Learn dance moves that everyone can do, and enjoy a fun and healthy holiday!

And of course, if you’d rather get away from it all, you can head out to Catoctin Breeze Vineyard this afternoon for live music from California Bob, and fabulous local wine. Then either spend the rest of the evening out in the country or head back to town for the greatest fireworks display in the state. Happy Independence Day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Get Up & Go! Summer Time Fun is All Around

    0

    Weekend

    It doesn’t get much more summer than this. School is out, the solstice is behind us, and how about that heat? This weekend, stay cool indoors, or get out and embrace that humid air we know so well. Here are a few ways to do it.

    Stay cool but get messy today at the Maryland Science Center’s Mess Fest. Kids are welcome to make all kinds of messes– whether as part of an art project or an obstacle course. Best of all, you don’t have to do the clean up.

    Free outdoor films abound all summer, as usual. Tonight, you can catch Jurassic Park at 9pm in Center Plaza. Bring something to sit on, and some cash to get your dinner from local food trucks!

    Tomorrow night’s Groovin’ in the Grass concert at Ladew Gardens will feature the Trinidad & Tobago Steel Drum Orchestra. Bring the whole family for a laid back evening in the garden.

    If some summer shopping is in order for your upcoming vacation (or just to stay looking and feeling cool), Green Spring Station has tons of sales all month long. Check out Bare Skinlabs, Bijoux, Misha Boutique, and the rest of Green Spring’s amazing boutiques for awesome deals through the end of the month.

    With or without new duds, you can also join in on the Great American Camp Out. Families across the country are camping out this weekend to instill a love of the outdoors in their kids. Join the fun in your own backyard or at an organized event, such as the one at Cromwell Valley Park. Here’s to summer!

     

      Get Up & Go! It’s Father’s Day Weekend!

      Weekend

      There’s plenty to do this Father’s Day Weekend, whether you’re celebrating with Dad or not. From festivals to food, crafts to craft beer, there’s tons going on this weekend– for the whole family, or the single shopper.

      Today, hop out of bed and head down to the Charm City Craft Mafia’s Pile of Craft— the amazing summer craft fair that features all of our favorite local (and non-local) artists!

      If Dad (or you, or anyone else, really) loves wine, you can hit up Baltimore Wine Fest for wine from around the world and craft beer galore. There will also be live music, cooking demos, and more!

      The Science Center is hosting a Solstice Party to honor the longest day of the year. But this is no kids’ affair. Enjoy dancing and cocktails with your fellow science-loving adults as you dance the shortest night of the year away.

      Still in search of a place to take Dad for brunch? The Mt. Washington Tavern has all Dad’s favorite menu items, along with a free bottle of Maker’s Mark Barbecue Sauce for all dads dining there that day.

      Or, if you’re spending Sunday morning without Dad, you can head over to lululemon athletica for their in-store yoga class in Harbor East. It’s a great way to pack some summer fitness into your weekend. And then maybe hit the brunch tables.

        Weekend

        Baltimore is in full summer mode, with festivals galore. Here’s hoping the rain doesn’t crash our party this weekend, with all that’s going on. But even if it does, you know you’ll dry off quickly– and plus, who couldn’t use a little cooling down after this past week?

          Get Up & Go! Summer Festivals and Food

          0

          Weekend

          This weekend, there’s plenty of summer fun to be had both in town and out. You can take in days full of music or plates full of ziti. Head out to the country for some fresh summer air, or stay right here for outdoor dining courtesy of some of the region’s best food trucks.

          All weekend long, you can take in Scape Scape— a music and performance festival that is taking over Station North with over 100 bands, jugglers, artists, hucksters, and more.

          Between bands, take a break to head down to Little Italy for St. Anthony’s Festival. Grab a zeppoli or two and head right back to Station North for more great music.

          Alternately, you can get your fill down at Patterson Park, where A Taste of 3 Cities is bringing together the best food trucks from DC, Philly, and of course, Baltimore. Come judge for yourself who’s got the tastiest wheels on the 95 corridor.

          Clark’s Elioak Farm hosts gem mining for kids today and tomorrow, as well. It’s a great excuse to head out to Ellicott City for the day with the whole family. There’s (not exactly) gold in them hills!

          And definitely don’t miss Great Grapes— a fantastic food and wine festival featuring hundreds of wines for tasting, along with food, art, kids activities, and live music to boot. Enjoy this great summer weekend!
