The best things to do in Baltimore this weekend
March 8: Forno’s Anniversary Party
Forno, 17 N. Eutaw St. 4-10p.m. Free.
It may be Italian restaurant and wine bar Forno’s fifth birthday this Friday, but you’ll be the one getting all the gifts. Wine and dine the night away at this theater-district favorite with all-night happy hour specials, complimentary small bites, whiskey samplings, and plenty of their signature brick-oven pizzas to go around. Who said adults can’t have fun at a kid-aged party?
March 9: Canton’s Irish Stroll
O’Donnell St. 1-8p.m. $20.
Relax, you’re not seeing double . . . at least not yet. This St. Paddy’s Day celebration is a week early, but that won’t stop dedicated locals from hitting the pavement for this 18th annual bar crawl to eight boozy stops across Canton. With drink specials starting at $3 at favorite haunts like Southern Provisions, Claddagh Pub, and Walt’s Inn, this drink-until-you-drop stroll is a true weekend pot of gold.
March 10-30: Reality Bites
MAXgallery, 126 N. Madeira St. Fri.-Sat. 2-5 p.m. Free.
Mexican poet and diplomat Octavio Paz once said, “Reality is not what we see, but what we discover.” This weekend, head to MAXgallery in Butcher’s Hill to be one of the first people to experience Reality Bites, a bold exhibition that pays homage to abstraction in painting. While the paintings will be on display until the end of the month, stop by the opening reception on Sunday afternoon to get a first look at works by artists like MICA professor Dan Dudrow and multi-discipline Israeli artist Shaul Tzemach.
Perfect place to relax after a full week of stress from work. This weekend is also Forno’s fifth birthday, so expect some wine and dine from this awesome restaurant. If you’re looking for some drinks, O’Donnell is the place to go.
