healthy kids day at the y

catch of the day fish (2)So, yesterday we brought back the old, “let’s make it Earth Day everyday.” And today really is Earth Day (happy Earth Day!). But now that we know that the good folks at the Y of Central Maryland are gearing up for Healthy Kids Day, we kind of have to ask: shouldn’t we make it Healthy Kids Day, everyday? Hmm… probably. But April 26th is a good place to start. And with a free festival that’s fun for kids and their families, we’re thinking it will probably be pretty easy to get into. Read More →

Earth Day lecture

catch of the day fish (2)For a while, there was the saying, “let’s make it Earth Day everyday.” And fair enough. Why shouldn’t we celebrate and remember how amazing and beautiful our planet is all year long. After all, we live on and rely on it every single day, right? Well, the Earth Day lecture at the National Aquarium will really make you wish it was Earth Day everyday, since they’re bringing in renowned marine filmmaker and photographer Bob Talbot. Talbot is not just an artist, he’s also an environmentalist, and will be speaking about the relationship between his art and his activism. Read More →

Spring Football Festival Featuring Justin Tucker

catch of the day fish (2)It seems like only yesterday we were cheering the Ravens on to a Super Bowl victory and parading in the streets for weeks afterward, celebrating our city’s triumph. Since then, another football season has come and gone, but our pride and love for the Ravens is, of course, always there. This weekend, you can get a little football fix at the Spring Football Festival being held at McHenry Row this Saturday afternoon. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)World Book Night Pre-Party at Atomic Books

Those book worms over at Atomic Books in Hampden really know how to party. As participants in World Book Night 2014, they’re hosting a pre-World Book Night  party this evening, to celebrate this latest tradition that helps to spread the joy of reading. World Book Night gets some of the best new books off of the shelves and into the hands of people who usually have little access to books because of means or geography. And with great folks like those at Atomic Books getting on board and hosting the festivities, reading couldn’t look more appealing. Read More →

Unbelievable Art and Process at Sugarloaf Crafts Festival

Arts and Crafts Sugarloaf

catch of the day fish (2)You know the experience of going to an arts and crafts festival and wondering, “how in the world do they do that?” Of course, the answer is that many artists and artisans hone their craft for years, dedicating themselves to their studios and workshops in order to create objects of true beauty. And usually, we don’t get to see that process—the way that artists transform raw materials like wood or wool or silver into fantastically crafted works of art. But at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival, April 25-27, 250 amazing artists will have finished works available for sale, but among those will be artists showcasing some pieces that have just begun, in order to give viewers a rare glimpse into the artistic process. There will be live demonstrations by master craftspeople in the process of creating all kind of usable, artistic objects. Read More →

Food trucks at the gathering

catch of the day fish (2)This Friday, head down to the Baltimore Museum of Industry for food trucks galore at The Gathering. The Gathering is basically a foodie’s dream come true, particularly on these warm spring evenings, when you can stroll between trucks, sample some of the finest eats from vendors all around our city, and take in the casual, family friendly atmosphere that The Gathering has to offer. Gatherings happen almost every week, and each time, money raised from the event goes toward a local good cause, so you can feel even better about the great time you’re having. Read More →

FashionEASTA Brings Super Chic to the Harbor

0 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 10, 2014 2:00pm


catch of the day fish (2)We all know that Harbor East is every fashion lover’s go-to spot for finding the newest, chicest trends. That’s why for three years now it’s been home to FashionEASTa—Baltimore’s ultimate style fête.  That means a full day of in-store specials at some of Baltimore’s hottest shops. The specials go hand in hand with the centerpiece of the event: The FashionEASTa Fashion Show. It’s a high energy runway show featuring local celebrity models — like Baltimore Ravens’ cornerback Lardarius Webb, who will model looks from Under Armour Brand House – and spring’s newest looks. But unlike those fashion shows that leave you thinking, “well sure, but who’s going to actually wear that?” the looks showcased at FashionEASTA all come straight out of Harbor East shops. So they’re not only super fabulous, but you can run right out and purchase them for yourself that very day—which we should mention is Saturday, April 26th. Save it.  Read More →

Trivia Questions and Seviche at Talara

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Apr 09, 2014 2:00pm


catch of the day fish (2)We all know that person who gets a few drinks in them and suddenly becomes a Civil War buff—spouting statistics and fun-filled anecdotes from their readings about Antietam and Vicksburg. Or maybe you have an uncle who has a few too many eggnogs at Christmas and suddenly the Trivial Pursuit board is out and the whole family is gathered around it. The point is trivia questions and alcohol go together well. On the one hand, a cocktail can loosen you up enough to tap wrinkles in your brain you didn’t even know you had. On the other hand, if you get an embarrassingly easy question wrong, just blame it on the demon rum. You can’t lose! And while plenty of bars in town offer a weekly or monthly trivia night, few offer the killer drinks and eats that Talara does.

SOGH Brings Us Baltimore’s First Art Truck

Art Truck 1

catch of the day fish (2)Once upon a time, you would have been hard pressed to find a decent food truck in this city. Then there was a while when you could sometimes find one or two in particularly lunch-breaky areas. Now they have their own rallies and are a staple of any outdoor event; making life in Baltimore tastier and more gourmet everyday. So when we heard that Baltimore’s own Shawn Theron has plans to open Baltimore’s first Art Truck (like a food truck, but for art), we of course got excited. Shawn is a local treasure, to be sure; and the possibility that his truck might start a trend resulting in a city dotted with mobile local art vendors has us simply elated. You’ve probably seen Theron’s work at the American Visionary Arts Museum, where he was included in the All Things Round exhibit in 2011/2012. He’s primarily known for his abstract paintings that feature almost celestial looking forms in saturated landscapes. He’s also known for keeping his work affordable. CBS recently named him one of the best places in Baltimore to purchase affordable art. Read More →

Learn More About Gardening with Flower School at Butterbee Farm

Flower School

 catch of the day fish (2)It may still be too early to fully visualize how gorgeous your garden will be in a couple of months, but it’s exactly the right time to sign up for any (or all) of Butterbee Farm’s Flower School offerings. The series of classes begins in June, but space is extremely limited, so early registration is a must. Each class covers a different subject—from “Getting an Early Start” to “Growing Edible Flowers” to “Your Autumn Garden.” Even for experienced gardeners, the folks at Butterbee probably have something to teach about gardening. After all, they’ve been named Baltimore’s Prettiest CSA by the City Paper, and its 2014 CSA is already completely sold out. But that just means you’ll have to grow your own flowers this season—which they’re happy to help you learn how to do. Read More →
