catch of the day fish (2)Events at Ladew tend to sell out quickly, so we say get in on this one while there’s still time. Ladew Gardens, that incredible topiary and nature center in our own backyard has started a series called Eco-Explorers. And it’s the perfect time of year for it, too. This series examines aspects of natural science through hands-on exploration and classroom learning as well. Participants will learn different aspects of natural exploration and then get outside to put these new skills to use! On Sunday, June 14th, the series’ special guest will be Dr. Brian Masters, a professor at Towson. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)The folks over at Make Tribe are redefining the term “craft beer.” Next weekend, they’ll be offering a one-evening workshop at Baltimore Clayworks, where participants will create their own ceramic beer stein under the guidance of expert instructor Mary Cloonan. Monument City Brewing will also be on hand with samples of their newest ales. This is a great opportunity to learn all about beer-making, ceramics, and how awesome it is when the two come together. Not a common occurrence, for some reason. Read More →

Catch of the Day, Druid Hill

Art Outside on May 17

catch of the day fish (2)There are many, many ways for a community to come together. And there are just as many ways for us to celebrate our city. Now more than ever, it seems that Baltimore needs us to get out there and show our love for our city and our communities. And with the fantastic spring weather, and the amazing grass-roots organizing we’ve seen recently, this is the perfect time to get out and enjoy the best that Baltimore has to offer. Druid Hill Park has long been beloved by Baltimoreans for its sprawling green hills, amazing views, and so much more. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Druid Hill Reservoir was the site of weekly outdoor festivals that brought the community together around a love of art, and of the park itself. And it’s in the spirit of these historic festivals that Art Outside was created. It’s a one-day festival the recreates the sense of creativity and community that made those historic gatherings so special. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)All week, Baltimoreans have banded together. Organizations have created safe spaces for our children who were not in school, artists have provided free concerts and events, and restaurants have opened their doors providing complimentary meals as a show of support in a difficult time for our city. There’s so much amazing grass roots and word-of-mouth organizing going on right now. And at the same time, some of our most well-established institutions have also made themselves felt as a presence this week. Read More →

Buying Into Baltimore

0 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 30, 2015 1:00pm

COTD

catch of the day fish (2)We love this city. So many of us do. This last week has been difficult to say the least, and all eyes are on Baltimore as folks around the country see our city streets in the paper and on the television. But we all know there’s so much about this place that those watching the news from far away can’t possibly see. There are many reasons Baltimoreans are proud (and grateful) to call this place home. Some of us were brought up here. Some transplanted for work or love or school. For some, it’s the amazing arts scene, or the history and architecture. Or the great diversity of neighborhoods and the sense of tight-knit community that a small city creates. As we dust off, clean up, and move forward from the past week, many of us are considering what it means to call this place home. Many of us are committing– or recommitting– to investing in Baltimore. So it’s pretty timely that Live Baltimore is hosting one of their periodic Buying Into Baltimore events on May 9th.

catch of the day fish (2)Needless to say, Baltimore is having a moment right now. Freddie Gray’s death has shaken this city, and no matter where you personally come down on the protests in response, the impact is undeniable. Our city has a lot to think about, and certainly a lot of cleaning up to do. We also have a whole lot of kids who will surely be asking questions, trying to make sense of things, and seeking some semblance of calm and stability in this climate of uncertainty.

catch of the day fish (2)This is Baltimore’s “soiree for the stylish.” It’s the fashion event of the season and it’s happening tomorrow. It’s FashonEASTa, and it’s the day when Baltimore’s hottest shopping destination (that’s Harbor East) transforms into an all-out celebration of style– complete with in-store specials and fashion events, live entertainment, cocktails, small bites, and of course a runway showcasing the hottest looks of the season. Oh, and did we mention there’s a guest model? That’s right, the Ravens’ own Justin Tucker will be struttin’ it down the runway as the year’s special guest– just to show how fabulous this event truly is.

Louder Than a Bomb Baltimore

LTAB FLYER FRONT

catch of the day fish (2)It would be easy to crack jokes about how appropriate it is to call an event that brings together a large group of teenagers “Louder Than a Bomb.” After all, if you’ve ever lived with one teenager (let alone, a swarm of them) you know that sound is a real thing– and yes, it does have power (for better or worse). On the “for better” side of things: Louder than a Bomb Baltimore. This rapidly growing teen poetry festival will take place this year at MICA from April 23-26th. Read More →

Mother’s Day Tea at Mount Clare Museum House

catch of the day fish (2)Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day plans. Sure, it’s still a few weeks away, but don’t let the holiday sneak up and catch you unawares with nary a brunch reservation in sight. If your same old spots are feeling a little worn out this year, maybe it’s time to take Mother’s Day back even further than your own family traditions. In fact, maybe you should take it all the way back to 1760, when the Mount Clare House was built. This gorgeous example of colonial architecture was the state’s first museum house, and they host a delightful array of events for families and curious history-oriented visitors each month. And for Mother’s Day this year, they’ll be hosting an afternoon tea fit for a queen (or mom). Read More →
