Live music, 5 8 p.m. 

Celebrate making it through the first week of classes at a Baltimore institution! Bertha’s Mussels has been hosting live music every weekend for over 40 years — this Friday’s performers are Brandt, Reggie and Eamon Duke.


Pruning Party, 10 a.m. 1 p.m. 

Recover from Friday night’s partying with a different kind of event... a pruning party! Blue Water Baltimore’s Forestry Team will teach you how to properly care for their newly planted urban trees for free, providing the perfect way to gain volunteer hours. More information can be found here.

A go-at-your-own-pace activity, the destinations of the scavenger hunt will take you from the Inner Harbor to landmarks, neighborhoods and sites all around the city! Sign up now for $44 per team of five.
