Aquadopt from the Aquarium for the Holidays

Aquadopt

catch of the day fish (2)Many of us struggle to find gifts that won’t easily be forgotten, and that also won’t clutter up an already full house. But gift certificates can seem impersonal, and it’s hard to “give” an experience as a gift. But the National Aquarium has a gift opportunity that works for adults and kids alike and that will warm the recipient’s heart while helping ensure that one of the Aquarium’s beloved animals stays well-tended to. It’s their Aquadopt program, and it allows you to “adopt” one of your favorite animals. Luckily, the folks at the aquarium will still do the work– no need to come in on Sundays to clean the tank or throw anybody some mackerel.  Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)The National Aquarium’s wonderful Fridays After Five program is back, and has been for a while now. That’s when they offer the amazing discount of only $12 admission if you come, well, on Friday after Five. The Aquarium is always a good bet, and a great place to take family and out of town guests. But they’re upping the appeal even more with an event this Friday called Fluid Art that will celebrate Baltimore’s thriving and vibrant art scene.

World’s Largest Women’s Barbershop Competition Coming to Baltimore

Barbershop Harmonies
catch of the day fish (2)You can usually tell when a “con” (that is, a convention) is in town. Suddenly the light rail (and harbor, and Lexington Market, and everything else) is full of young men dressed as My Little Ponies (BronyCon) or people of all stripes dressed as Anime characters (Otakon). It can be a little disorienting, of course, but it can also fill one with a kind of civic pride. After all, if Baltimore is the kind of place that people can comfortably assemble for their not-quite-run-of-the-mill gatherings, we think that speaks pretty well of our city. Well, here comes a convention whose attendees may be less conspicuous– but which is certainly as worthy of notice as anything else we’ve seen all year. It’s the 68th annual Sweet Adelines International Convention and Competition. For the uninitiated, that’s the world’s largest women’s barbershop harmony competition– 2015 edition.

Save the Inner Harbor’s Beach Volleyball Courts!

The plans for Inner Harbor 2.0 call for all sorts of new stuff to be installed around Baltimore’s prime waterfront neighborhood. There will be an underground parking garage, increased green space, “interactive water features,” and playgrounds. But there may not be beach volleyball courts, and for some Baltimoreans, that’s a big problem.

Das Best Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest

catch of the day fish (2)There are plenty of Oktoberfests out there (and we encourage hitting as many as possible) but this one is Das Best, or “the best” if you’ve forgotten your German definite articles. What makes it das best? How about the incredible selection of international and local beers, wines, and schnapps that come with an “all you can taste” policy for those attending? Not only that, there’s music, sausage, and, thanks to the Orioles needing the stadium for a home game, a waterfront view. That’s right, the location for Das Best has been moved to Rash Field at the Inner Harbor. We guess no one was expecting there to be hordes of Os fans downtown this late in the season. Oh, snap.
