Spring is here, Baltimore, and with it, tons of restaurant news, from the opening of a swanky new chop house to the return of a beloved brunch to food-related classes popping up all over town. Here’s a look at what Baltimore’s restaurants have to offer this week:
Activists have planned two worldwide protest marches for this April in Washington, D.C. in response to President Trump and the GOP’s all-out attacks on scientists, the Environmental Protection Agency and climate change policies. The March for Science will take place on Earth Day, April 22, 2017. Following a week of “protests in action,” the People’s Climate March will take place on Trump’s 100th day in office, April 29, 2017. Read More →
In 1634, two ships full of British settlers landed at St. Clement’s Island and colonized the Province of Maryland. Among those settlers was the Calvert family, credited with both founding Maryland and inspiring our iconic state flag with its family crests.
Every year on March 25, we celebrate that founding with an official state holiday and by waving Maryland’s bold and unique flag in all its red, white, black and gold glory. Nearly four centuries later, thanks in large part to a motivated graduate from UMD, we can wear that flag too.
The March full moon, the last full moon of winter, is known in some parts as the Sap Moon when evidence of life below the frozen surface begins to trickle forth sweetly. Sugar season.

Urban Landscape: Deciding the Fate of Camden Station; Trader Joe’s Moves Within Towson; Monument City Brewing Opens in Highlandtown, Robert Kanigel on Jane Jacobs
Should partly vacant Camden Station be rented out as office space, or should the state hold out for a one-of-a-kind use that could draw people to Oriole Park at Camden Yards? What would that use be? What role should the Baltimore Orioles play in making the decision?
