It was a Tuesday, and I was hungry.
Amid the vicious cycle of midterms, papers, presentations and projects, I like to distract myself from impending despair by eating. During the long, cold, late-autumn nights, food provides nourishment, warmth and a sense of security. While I love to experiment in the kitchen, there are a few recipes I turn to time and time again — recipes I can whip up with no thought and that never fail to satisfy my cravings.
Tired of listening to the same four songs off your playlist? Or perhaps C-level of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library and its quiet expanse is beginning to feel too familiar for your taste? You’re in luck: The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) brings exciting entertainment for all people who enjoy concert music. The fall season will bring several concerts, including many that are holiday-themed.
This past weekend, the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) hosted Mera Kitchen Collective for a special seminar titled “The Stories of Mera Kitchen: Chef Iman in Conversation with Alia Malek.” Mera Kitchen Collective is a worker-owned cooperative that seeks to empower immigrant women through food.
It’s spooky season, and no, I’m not referring to midterms that are just around the corner.
At this point in the semester, you’re probably settling into the classic Hopkins hibernation cycle: moving exclusively from Brody to your dorm room as the essays, problem sets and cold weather set in.
This weekend, I made the trek off campus out to Samos Restaurant in Greektown. Located in southeast Baltimore, it is conveniently located right next to the Bayview Medical Campus (if you ever happen to be there).
“Immigrant food is American food.”
Last weekend, The Gathering Food Truck Fest brought local bands and food trucks to Harbor Point Plaza to celebrate the ongoing Fleet Week festivities.
October began last week, and spooky season is here. Along with the usual pre-Halloween traditions — haunted houses, scary movies, pumpkin spice (that’s all I want from fall, really) — a new event arrived to the city this year. Last Saturday and Sunday, the International Edgar Allan Poe Festival and Awards was held.
As an undergraduate student at Hopkins, it becomes far too easy to get stuck within the Hopkins bubble, going weeks without leaving Charles Village. As a first-semester freshman, I made it my goal to do something off campus at least once a week so as to not fall into this trap.
On the last Friday of each month, the most unique and perhaps greatest display of community occurs in Baltimore. It only takes two words to fully encapsulate this event: BIKE PARTY. It is exactly what it sounds like: a party on bikes, a celebration of this mode of transit on wheels. Over the past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in this monthly event. It was my first Bike Party, and I already know that it certainly won’t be my last.
A famous line in the Hamilton soundtrack comes in a somber song, “It’s Quiet Uptown,” after the death of Alexander Hamilton’s son: “They say he walks the length of the city” to mourn and reflect.
Baltimore is no longer officially known as “The City That Reads,” but this weekend, it may as well revert to its old slogan. That’s because it’s finally the time of year that we (or at least, I and 17,000 other people, according to Facebook) have been waiting for. No, it’s not fall break quite yet, but it’ll still be an exciting few days — the Baltimore Book Festival is this weekend, taking over the Inner Harbor from Friday to Sunday.
