Would any of us particularly care about Baltimore were we not Hopkins students? Despite recent promotion as a fun, exciting destination, our city has yet to appeal to the masses like Los Angeles or New York. And if you had previously visited Baltimore, it probably wasn’t to our neighborhood. For those who are tourists, the main draw of Baltimore is the Inner Harbor.
As a new member of the Blue Jay nest, it is important for you and your new friends to spread your wings and fly beyond Homewood Campus.
While the Fresh Food Cafe (FFC) will probably be the place you go to most often for food, and the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) the place you go to most often when you need to feel like you’re doing something cultured, there are plenty of hidden treasures in Baltimore — if one only dares to pop the bubble.
Hey You, Come Back! May Reading, The Crown, 8 p.m.
I’ve written just over 30 articles about Baltimore for the Your Weekend section in the past couple years, and as my senior year winds down to a close (But does anything at Hopkins really “wind down” as opposed to screeching to an academically exhausting halt?) I’ve thought a lot about what this last one should be like.
Baltimore has nothing to offer me.
Blackness, Manhood and Masculinity in the Visual Arts, Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute and Cultural Center, 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
One of the most underrated aspects of Charm City is the art scene here.
If you know anything about me, it’s that I love eating out. I’ll make money primarily to fund my reckless dining habits because the Baltimore food scene is both my greatest joy when it comes to my stomach and greatest downfall when it comes to my wallet.
Mezcal Tasting, Remington Wine Company, 7 p.m.
According to all usual conventions, it’s spring now.
Recently, when chatting about The News-Letter with a pal, they made reference to a particular feature of Your Weekend, one that I hadn’t and wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
When asked to write a column about my weekend, my first thought was that I had little to nothing to write about. My dreams of endless excitement during Senior Spring have largely devolved into evenings spent eating ice cream and watching National Geographic with friends.
As we look forward to a high of 80 degrees this Friday, I can finally say that the springtime I’ve been preaching as just around the corner for the last 40 articles is actually here.
Carving Out the Commons, Red Emma’s, 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
In my tenure as a writer for Your Weekend, I have often sought out places that most Hopkins students probably haven’t heard of. To me, the point of this section is to get folks acquainted with this wild and wonderful City and to (hopefully) generate some hype about local businesses and events.
I have always had terrible self-control with shopping.
Boh’s & O’s, Mt. Vernon Stable & Saloon, 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Spring break: bikinis, tans, college students across the country getting as drunk as possible. Perhaps spring break, now more than ever, is a time when one hears, “I wanna get wasted” or “I can’t wait to black out” with Snapchats, Instagram stories and Facebook photos proudly displaying copious amounts of alcohol.
