The (nice and toasty warm) convention center is filled with more than 650 artists showing off their wares. The show runs today through Sunday and has a huge assortment of things to see (including some really cool hand-made and 3D printed objects). Tickets are $14, or $36 for the 3 day pass. Here's the official website for more details. Below are some pictures from last year to give you a tiny taste of what the show has to offer.
If you plan on going to Brew At the Zoo on May 23rd-24th, then now is the time to get your tickets. Pre-sale has just started and runs until March 2nd (and it's your chance to get tickets for the cheapest possible price). Use your zoo membership number in the coupon code spot to save $10 on top of the discount. Once you get your tickets, you can sit back and dream about warm weather zoo fun. For the event, you'll get a sampling glass, unlimited beer and wine samples, admission to the zoo, and get to hear some great bands. Here's the official website link.
This weekend at Max's in Fells Point, you'll find hundreds (140+ on tap, 200+ in bottle) of Belgian beers to try out. There's no entrance fee, though make sure everyone attending is 21 (their policy is no one under 21 inside the door). On Friday at 10AM, Burley Oak will be stopping by as well. There are a few details on the official Facebook page, and hotel deals on the official website. Have fun, but drink responsibly (those Belgians are STRONG).
Since 2011, the Baltimore Bohemians have been playing outdoor soccer hard and representing the city with pride. Now they'll move to play all home games at Bovegna Field in Canton (on Boston Street)! The Season Schedule has been announced, and more details will be coming over the next months. For now, plan on catching their first home game, Saturday, May 23rd. Let's go Bohs!

The boat show kicks off this Thursday, and has grown! Shake off the cold with an early peek at summertime this weekend at the Convention Center. Classes, contests, kids activities, boat and accessory sales, and so much more will be showcased.

The Baltimore Convention Center is where you want to be this weekend if you're planning on doing any work on your home in the coming year. Meet experts, see novel products, and get inspiration for projects. I've personally found a great garage door installer from this expo, and can't suggest it enough for new homeowners.
The Expo runs from Friday to Sunday and tickets are only $4 per person (anyone under 18 is free).
Here's the official website.
This Sunday (January 11th) brings the Pay What You Want day at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It's exactly what it sounds like. You choose how much you want to pay to enter (4D movie is $5 per person though). Not too bad at all. Here's the link.

With a harbor as stunning as ours, it's hard not to want to get and explore it. The problem for most of us is that boats can be costly and many people just don't have the skills to operate them. This is where the Downtown Sailing Center comes in. Starting at $99 a person, you can join the DSC for the 2015 season. Besides being a great place to meet people, you can learn to sail and get a chance to take in the city from a completely different perspective. The rates will go up over the next few months, so join sooner than later.
