Yoga Arboretum

catch of the day fish (2)Okay, okay. So yesterday we let fly with our unabashed endorsement of checking out the Grand Prix. And we’re not here to back-peddle. But it takes all kinds, as they say. So today we do officially swing 180 degrees, to endorse the anti-Grand Prix: free outdoor yoga at the Cylburn Arboretum. And the best thing about it? It’s happening this Saturday, August 31st. Meaning that it’s a place you can absolutely, 100% count on to be quiet, serene, welcoming, and traffic-free this weekend. Read More →

Sunday, May 19: Art Outside

0 Written by: | Monday, May 06, 2013 1:13pm


Has anyone petitioned the city to have our new tagline be “Baltimore: the city of awesome outdoor public festivals”? Maybe it doesn’t quite have a ring to it, but it’s certainly accurate, and describes one of our favorite features of this town. Not only is there always something to do—it often involves being outside, with great music, local food and artists, and our fellow Baltimoreans out to enjoy all that’s going on. One fabulous upcoming example: Art Outside, a juried arts event that will be held on Sunday, May 19th, around the Druid Hill Reservoir (aka our absolute favorite spot for a jog, a picnic, or just an incredible view of the city). If you’re newer to town, and ArtScape is your only reference point for outdoor art festivals in Baltimore, take note: from 1953 to 1968, Druid Hill Park was the site of an annual art festival inspired by the outdoor art sales that were being held in New York’s Washington Square. These festivals gave local artists the opportunity to exhibit their work to the public at a time when alternative and small galleries and exhibition spaces weren’t the norm that they are today. With fond memories of those festivals, Barbara Shapiro set out to bring that spirit– or more accurately, the whole thing– back for today’s Baltimore. And how perfect that it coincides with the reservoir’s 150th anniversary? Read More →

A Little Explosion to Start Your Day

“Hey Baltimore, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT??!!!,” one of my Facebook friends wrote yesterday morning. Other folks quickly chimed in about the huge boom and subsequent heavy rumbling that shook the Woodberry/Druid Hill/Hampden region; guesses included a meth lab explosion, a truck that had flipped over and was being dragged down a hill,  or”something huge falling off a cliff.” But rest easy, Baltimore — that explosion was on purpose.
