Urban Farm Volunteer Day at Cherry Hill Urban Garden

Volunteer Day

catch of the day fish (2)Alright. Summer is almost over (sorry) and we know that some of you haven’t gotten your hands in the soil enough this season. Now, we’re not blaming anyone. We know that a trip to  Ocean City or Bethany Beach often trumps the desire to stay home for the weekend and weed the zucchini plants. And that’s especially true when we have access to such amazing farmers markets. Why grow your own when there are so many local folks who do it so well for you, right? Sure. But, this Saturday we’re encouraging you to get out to Cherry Hill Urban Garden and lend a hand– both for the garden’s benefit, of course, and your own. Read More →

Beauty Products

catch of the day fish (2)One of the great things about our job here at Catch of the Day is getting to sing the praises of Baltimore’s many small businesses and entrepreneurs. Not many other places can boast being such fertile ground for those who want to create their own business and pursue their wildest creative impulses. So when Baltimore successfully sprouts something amazing, it feels like a win for the whole city– and of course it is, because we get to benefit first. Such is the case with Priya Means Love– a complete line of carefully considered organic beauty products handcrafted by Priya Narasimhanin in her own Baltimore home workshop. Read More →

Baltimore Bike Party

Bike Party

catch of the day fish (2)Ain’t no party like a Baltimore Bike Party. Or is there? Only one way to find out. This Friday (and every last Friday of the month) you can hop on your favorite two-wheeled chariot and head down to join in the fun wherever it may lead. Each Bike Party starts at the same spot, but ends at a new location. One thing you can always be sure of is that it will always be a blast and there will always be plenty of partying to go around– that’s food, music, beer, food, and of course the enthusiastic company of your fellow cyclists.

Celebrating Latino Culture at the Creative Alliance

Latino Culture at Creative Alliance

catch of the day fish (2)Baltimore’s amazing cultural diversity is one of our city’s strengths. And part of living in such a diverse place is celebrating the rich tapestry of cultures that make up this place we call home. Sure, the US is known as a “melting pot” but it’s also important to take note of the things that make each individual culture unique. We don’t just melt into each other, we shine in our uniqueness and our differences are part of what makes us who are. And on that note, we’re thrilled about this month’s opening of Chicanismo y Latinismo, a group exhibition at the Creative Alliance that explores how the Chicano movement has continued to evolve by moving beyond its West Coast origins and expanding to include a multiplicity of Latino identities.  Read More →

Magic and Mind Reading at Johnny’s

Joe Riggs Magic

catch of the day fish (2)“He blew my mind!” That’s a quote from acclaimed film director Quentin Tarantino about entertainer and mentalist Joe Riggs. For someone like Tarantino (who himself makes a living blowing minds) to offer such an endorsement has to mean something. And if you’ve ever been to see a mentalist (or deductionist or psychological entertainer, as they’re sometimes called) you know how truly astounding it can be. But Joe Riggs is at the top of his game. Raised by psychic readers (how many of us can say that?), Joe quickly saw through their methods and grew into a riveting and intense Mental Specialist. Attendees will be able to interact with Joe one-on-one in a very special appearance Thursday, Sept 4th at Johnny’s Downstairs. Read More →

Children’s Day at Ladew Gardens

Butterfly Gardens

catch of the day fish (2)World renowned Ladew Topiary Gardens is always a great place to bring the kids. After all, there’s plenty of space to run around, hide behind giant hedges, and appreciate the Alice in Wonderland-esque topiary masterpieces. But now there’s even more at Ladew to thrill the little ones. So this year’s Children’s Day also marks the opening of Ladew’s new Butterfly House. Dare we say it’s Ladew’s most eagerly anticipated family event yet? We think it just might be. After all, it’s a day long celebration of caterpillars and butterflies– those perennial kid favorites. Not that we as adults would turn down an afternoon of wondering at these most gorgeous members of the insect world ourselves. So save the date (Saturday, September 6) for Ladew’s most aflutter family day ever. Read More →

Move Closer to your Dream Home with Buying Into Baltimore

Home

catch of the day fish (2)For most, owning one’s own home remains an essential part of the American Dream. And luckily, we live in a town where that can be relatively achievable. The city is full of gorgeous architecture, charming neighborhoods, and a huge variety of homes, from super chic condos to historic Victorian mansions. And since we love it here, we know that buying a home here is always a good idea. It’s not just a wise financial investment – home prices in Baltimore have remained quite stable throughout the last several years, rather than crashing like in so many parts of the country — it’s also a way to really invest in your city and your community, and to really put down roots. That’s why Live Baltimore offers the twice yearly Buying Into Baltimore event — to make it even easier and more appealing to do just that. The fall event is September 27, so we’re giving you plenty of time to save the date. Read More →

Cooking Classes

catch of the day fish (2)Confession time. We are avid watchers of all those competitive cooking shows. Chopped, Hell’s Kitchen, Cupcake Wars, you name it. And it’s not just because of the mouth watering offerings that contestants come up with. It’s also because whether they’re seasoned professional chefs or just obsessive amateurs, every contestant knows more about food and technique than we thought there was to know. And thanks to chef Nancy Longo at Pierpoint Restaurant, some of these sought after skills can be yours when you sign up for one of Pierpoint’s awesome cooking classes. Read More →

The Campbell Dance Experience at Theatre Project

Campbell Dance

catch of the day fish (2)Even for those of us who consider ourselves real culture vultures, I’m gonna bet that most of us just don’t see that much dance on the regular. We may go to plays, films, concerts and lectures, but for many, dance can be a little less on our radar. Even if we like to go out dancing, or take dance classes (Zumba, anyone?) when we think of watching dance performance, many times, our only point of reference is The Nutcracker. Luckily, you can change all that this Friday, with a special, one-night only performance at Theatre Project from The Campbell Dance Experience– some of the most remarkable contemporary dance that the city has to offer.

Get Reading with One Maryland One Book

Reading with One Maryland One Book

catch of the day fish (2)You know that feeling that permeated the city when the Ravens won the Super Bowl? How everywhere you went, people had something to talk to each other about? We’d all shared the collective experience of seeing our birds make it all the way there, and then triumph in that last quarter. And so whether at the coffee shop or on the street or at the bank, we had an easy in for a conversation with a stranger. Our shared pride connected us and made made the city feel small. That’s kind of the idea behind One Maryland One Book– except instead of a focus on Ray Lewis, it’s on author Reyna Grande. And instead of gathering around our TVs eating 7-layer dip, we’re gathering around library tables to discuss a fascinating piece of contemporary literature: Grande’s The Distance Between Us. So yeah, it’s a little different from the whole Super Bowl thing, but the idea of uniting the whole state in this way is something we’re thrilled to get behind. Read More →
