Late January is, famously, one of the most depressing times of year. It’s cold outside (even if, this year, it’s not that cold) and though the days are getting longer, the sun still sets awfully early.

Fortunately, Baltimore restaurants are here to breathe some life into these dark hours. This week is chock full of events, from vegan meals to decadent wine dinners. Here’s a look at what’s on tap:

Restaurant Week Hacks

If you’re hungry, you won’t be for long. Baltimore Restaurant Week kicks off today; it’s also time for the next (wildly popular) food truck gathering. Looking ahead, Baltimore Beer Week starts on October 6 — yes, for food lovers, there are quite a few reasons to get excited over the next couple of months. It all sounds great — hypothetically. Sometimes, though, things get just too crowded and confusing, and we end up skipping all these great deals and ruing it later. Some lessons we’ve learned/important info we’ve gleaned over the years:

  • Restaurant Week runs Friday, August 5 to Sunday, August 14. You probably know this by now, but just in case — all participating restaurants offer a three-course prix-fixe dinner menu for $35.11 per person ($20.11 for lunch). This doesn’t include drinks, tip, tax, etc. — which means that it’s a pretty good deal at fancy spots, and not so great at Baltimore’s many moderately-priced restaurants. Look out for special promotions to add value to the deal; for example, the Mt. Washington Tavern offers up a complimentary glass of house wine along with your dinner, and Cinghiale lets you add  wine pairings to your meal for $24.
  • Baltimore County’s restaurant week follows shortly thereafter, from August 12-26. Similar deal, except with variable pricing:  some lunches are as cheap as $10.11, and some dinners start at $25.11 (depending on the restaurant).
  • If booking a table stresses you out, don’t fear — the past few years, restaurant week has had a “surprise” extension at many local venues; this year, The Prime Rib is already calling August “Restaurant Month,” so you have a few extra weeks to take advantage of special prices. (No Saturdays, though.)
  • If the food trucks sound more appealing (to your tastebuds or your wallet), remember to get there early this time — lots of trucks sold out early last time. The time:  5pm (til whenever food runs out); the place: 901 S. Wolfe St.
