Deep Vision Dance Company

catch of the day fish (2)Nothing is static. We are ever changing. That’s the premise behind this new evening of work from Deep Vision Dance Company, which will run at the Baltimore Theatre Project next weekend. The company, founded in 2011 under the artistic direction of Nicole A. Martinell focuses on work that explores emotional complexity and what Martinell calls the “strange beauty of the world around us.” Ranging from abstract to narrative work, Martinell’s choreography illustrates opposing ends of a continuum – an unfolding journey characterized by detailed characters, spiraling phrases, and a continuous ebb and flow of space. That, and it’s mesmerizing to watch. Read More →

Crafts show

For the weekend of April 24-26, you can stroll the fairgrounds and stock up on unique handmade gifts in anticipation of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, and weddings.

Look for 3Clothing by Nikki Gordon, clay monsters by Cat Holt, and great jewelry from Mary DeMarco-Wolfe. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)We’ve got some pretty amazing local talent here in Baltimore, and on the whole, it’s enough to keep us satisfied all year round. Our homegrown music, theater, comedy and art have gained national recognition in recent years– and for good reason. But we’re also lucky enough to be a destination for performers and artists of international renown– and every so often, it’s an act that we’d camp out overnight to get tickets to. Such is Lily Tomlin– the pioneering comedian and actor who Newsweek says “made the one-person show the daring, irreverent art form it is today.” She’s all that and more, and she’ll be in town for one night only– so do not miss your chance.

Juice Packs To Go from Plantbar

catch of the day fish (2)Is the warm weather starting to turn your mind toward summer fitness? Now that the buds are budding and spring is here, many of us are crawling out of our winter hibernation shells to find we’ve lost a bit of that healthy glow we had once upon a time. It could be the fact that most of our skin hasn’t seen the sun in many months. Or that we stocked up on clearance Valentine’s Day and Easter candy and have been dutifully working through it (oops). Or that it’s just that much harder to make it to the gym when the roads are covered in ice, and the Snuggie calls. Fair enough. But now it’s time to get your head back in the game. One super quick (and delicious) health fix you can bet on? Fresh pressed juice 6-packs from Pantbar.

Mind Body Celebrates 15 Years in Mt. Washington

catch of the day fish (2)Nothing we love more than a locally owned business that is thriving simply by helping Baltimoreans themselves thrive. And thriving for the long term is what Mind Body Physical Therapy and Pilates studio seems to be doing as they celebrate their 15th anniversary this month. While so many of Mind Body’s clients are saying “thank you” for restored and renewed health and vitality, the studio itself is saying thank you to the community with featured classes, packaged specials and Physical Therapy promotions throughout the month of April.

Music from the Sole at the Creative Alliance

catch of the day fish (2)It’s not everyday that Baltimore is host to a world premiere by internationally renowned artists. But leave it to the Creative Alliance to bring us some of the most energetic and unique performance out there– well before it hits the bigger stages of New York. This weekend, Brazilian-born tap phenom’ Leonardo (Leo) Sandoval and American bassist Gregory Richardson will perform their new collaborative work, “Music from the Sole.” It’s a work born from their experience together as street performers in New York City, drawing on a variety of influences.

Catch of the Day, Food & Drink

It’s National Beer Day!

catch of the day fish (2)Just when you thought the spring holiday push was over, turns out it’s National Beer Day. Alas. And while you probably don’t need to order anyone flowers or write out any cards, it wouldn’t be proper to just let the day go by without any ceremony at all, would it? Luckily, Baltimore is a perfectly easy place to celebrate (and imbibe) beer of all kinds. Whether you’re going for a fine craft microbrew, or our beloved (or at least ubiquitous) Natty Boh, this city has you covered. So tonight make sure to stop by your local brewery (or liquor store) on your way home and pick up just enough to crack open to mark this important day.

Blacksauce Kitchen and the JFX Farmers Market

catch of the day fish (2)Admittedly, we’ve spent the last few weeks focusing on all things related to the spring holidays. Easter and Passover coincide this year, so it seems like everyone’s atwitter with plans for gathering, visiting, and feasting with friends and loved ones this weekend. And we’re fully behind that. But if neither Easter nor Passover is really a thing for you, there is a certain way in which you’re at an advantage. Because this weekend, you can head down, unfettered, to the JFX farmers’ market and get your fill of incredible food from Blacksauce Kitchen. And there probably won’t even be a line. Read More →

Carroll County PEEPshow

catch of the day fish (2)If you’re a regular reader of this column (and of course you are), you’ve maybe noticed that pretty much every lead-up-to-Easter post has included a jab or two at Peeps. You know those ubiquitous, radio-active colored Easter “treats” that as far as we can tell, never actually get eaten by anyone. Well, this is the one exception. Because, it turns out that there is actually a good reason for Peeps’ existence, and the folks at the Carroll County Arts Council have it down. Read More →

Brown Rice is Open

catch of the day fish (2)Maybe we’re a little late to this particular party. Brown Rice, the new Korean restaurant in town, has been open since the beginning of the year, but for some reason it’s taken us this long to listen to what everyone’s been saying: this place is great. Brown Rice is kind of quintessential Korean food in that it’s flavorful, made with simple ingredients, and even though it’s mighty tasty, you can tell it’s cooked in such a way that it’s gotta be pretty good for you.
