Weekend Lineup: January 25-27
The best things to do in Baltimore this weekend.
Jan. 27: Brunch N’ Chill
Prime Corner, 3400 Chestnut Ave. 11 a.m.-2 p.m. $25.
From sleeping masks and bath bombs to chocolates and coffee, products infused with CBD oil (aka cannabidiol, the second-most abundant compound found in marijuana plants) are all the rage. This Sunday, trade your usual mimosa-filled brunch for a plant-based breakfast at Hampden’s Prime Corner, and then spend the afternoon sampling CBD-filled treats from local purveyors, including lattes from Vent Coffee Roasters, donuts from Full Circle Artisan Palace, and ketchup from Secret Sauce Co.
Jan. 25: Nepenthe Brewing Co. Opening
Nepenthe Brewing Co., 3600 Clipper Mill Rd. 4 p.m. Free.
After months of delays, this new Hampden hangout officially opens to the public on Friday. The facility (which includes a 160-seat taproom, a 10-barrel brewhouse, and an attached home-brewing shop) is an expansion of Nepenthe Homebrew, the beer-making supply shop that husband-and-wife owners Brian Arnold and Jill Antos operated in Woodberry for five years before moving to their new home on Falls Road. Joined now by Brendan Kirlin (formerly of The Wine Market and Le Garage), the co-owners are ready to open their doors. This weekend, fill a flight with samples of Nepenthe’s starting lineup of IPAs and saisons.
Jan. 25-27: Raoul Middleman: Watercolors & Monoprints
C. Grimaldis Gallery, 523 N. Charles St. Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
At 84 years old, this born-and-raised Baltimore artist continues to create innovative artworks that exhibit renewed inspiration for his lifelong passions and subjects: burlesque, horses, and Charm City. Visit the C. Grimaldis Gallery to take in this longtime MICA professor’s latest series of inked mono-prints and impressionist watercolors, which will be on display at the Mt. Vernon gallery until February 16.
Jan. 26: Super City, Chaunter, and Soul Cannon
Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. 9 p.m. $12.
If we had to make a wish list concert lineup of some of our favorite up-and-coming local acts, it would look a lot like this Saturday’s roster at the Ottobar. With “freakwave” band Super City home from their nationwide tour and ready to rock the Remington club with tracks from their latest album, Sanctuary, along with sets from songwriting duo Chaunter and experimental hip-hop collective Soul Cannon, this is the definition of a can’t-miss show.

Whether you want to eat, go to a pub, watch an art display, go to a theater, etc. Baltimore certainly has a place for you. These recommended places are definitely among the best places. If you are a sports fan, then the Baltimore Orioles FanFest this weekend will surely suit your liking. Jon Meoli reported in details the upcoming Baltimore Orioles Fanfest this weekend.
Orioles Announce 2019 FanFest To Be Held Jan. 26 at Baltimore Convention Center
The Orioles’ annual offseason FanFest will be held Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Baltimore Convention Center, the team announced.
While few details other than the date came out Thursday, FanFest is typically a driver in ticket sales and features fan-oriented events such as autographs, question-and-answer sessions with players and coaches, baseball activities and memorabilia.
FanFest is annually a marker for where the Orioles are in their offseason, with past editions coinciding with some of their bigger offseason moves, such as the re-signing of Mark Trumbo before the 2017 season.
However, this year’s event will likely be more about a first chance for fans to interact with the new people chosen to lead the Orioles’ baseball operations and hear their thoughts in the traditional season-ticket holder Q&A that kicks off the event. Click here to read the rest of this post…
Apart from the fanfest, there will also be a Fanfest autograph session, which includes Brook Robinson.
Orioles Announce FanFest Autograph Session Participants, Including Brooks Robinson, Top Prospects
With their major league roster lacking some of the star power of recent years, the Orioles are supplementing this year’s FanFest with a pair of Hall of Famers-turned-special advisors during the autograph sessions in Brooks Robinson and Eddie Murray, plus a host of prospects.
The pair, who each came back on board in the organization in 2018 as special advisors with fan-outreach focuses, will appear in one session apiece at the annual winter event Jan. 26 at the Baltimore Convention Center. So will prospects DL Hall, Ryan Mountcastle, Keegan Akin and Ryan McKenna, a new wrinkle to this year’s event. Hall of Famer Jim Palmer will also be part of a pair of signings, while new manager Brandon Hyde will also sit for a signing session.
The list of ticketed autograph sessions includes many of the team’s top names, including outfielder Trey Mancini, first baseman Chris Davis, designated hitter Mark Trumbo and pitchers Dylan Bundy and Mychal Givens. Among the team’s veterans, right-handers Alex Cobb and Andrew Cashner are not listed for autograph sessions.
As is customary at FanFest, autographs will require a separate ticket outside the one to gain admittance to the event, with those tickets on sale Thursday at 2 p.m. at orioles.com/FanFest. Proceeds from those tickets benefit youth charities through the team’s OriolesREACH philanthropic arm. See full post here…
If you’re in Baltimore to find an awesome place to drink, then you can find a lot of cozy places to drink within the city. One of the best among them is the Nepenthe Brewing Co., which Lauren Cohen featured in one of her articles in Baltimore Magazine.
Nepenthe Brewing Co. is Finally Debuting in Hampden This Weekend
Standing near the front windows of his new facility Nepenthe Brewing Co. in Hampden, Brian Arnold acknowledges a group of pedestrians strolling past the building on Falls Road. “I just got a thumbs up,” he says with a smile.
The excitement from the community means everything to Arnold, his wife Jill Antos, and their business partner Brendan Kirlin—who have all spent the past year and a half working tirelessly to get the brewpub up and running.
“A year ago, this building was a full-blown horror movie,” Arnold says, scrolling through old photos of dark corridors and dripping water. “There were times when I would walk friends through and they would just be completely shell shocked.”
But the owners always saw potential in the combined property, which formerly housed David’s 1st and 10 Sports Bar and multiple meatpacking operations. Now, after months of delays with demolition, permitting, construction, and installation, the space is finally opening as Nepenthe Brewing Co. on Friday, January 25 at 4 p.m.
The redesigned complex marks a new chapter for Nepenthe Homebrew, Arnold and Antos’ beer-making supply store that originated in Woodberry’s Meadow Mill complex in 2013. The concept of working from the ground up is familiar to the husband-and-wife duo, who were forced to rebuild their shop twice after it was severely damaged by Jones Falls flooding in the spring of 2014 and again in July of 2016.
“About 14 months after we opened, things were going well enough that Jill and I wrote ourselves our first paychecks,” Arnold remembers. “And then two days later, we flooded. I remember standing there on the banks of the river and we just despaired.”
In its new digs on higher ground, Nepenthe has grown to include a 10-barrel brew house with four fermenters, a taproom with 16 draft lines, a full tavern menu to pair with the beers, and an attached retail shop to sell the company’s signature home-brewing kits and supplies. Learn more here…
