Celebrating your birthday in college can be a weird experience. When I was in elementary and middle school, my parents planned parties each year. They invited my friends and found fun activities for us to do together. As my sisters and I matured, these parties became family dinners or game nights with friends.
The Super Bowl, Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day are behind us, but the festivities don’t have to stop! Check out what you can do this weekend away from Homewood Campus!
With Valentine’s Day in the spotlight, date spots are in demand more than ever. As the semester shifts into full gear, however, it’s too easy to become fully immersed in the depths of the Homewood campus. If you’re looking for some cute date spots to take your significant other or friend, here are some of Baltimore’s hidden gems.
Now that the day of love is behind us, it’s time to look ahead to celebrating next year! But celebrations of love should be about more than just your significant other; you should also celebrate your friends. Enter Galentine’s Day. A portmanteau of “gal” and “Valentine’s Day,” this holiday was invented and popularized fourteen years ago by the hit sitcom Parks and Recreation. Celebrated annually on Feb. 13, the day takes the focus away from romance for 24 hours and is meant to honor the platonic relationships in your life. If you didn’t go all out for the day this year, no worries! This guide can help you start brainstorming early, so you can make the most of it next year.
The city doesn’t get more exciting than this weekend! It kicks off with Lunar New Year on Saturday, the Super Bowl on Sunday and Valentine’s Day just around the corner.
Through the years, CharMar has gone through multiple evolutions of vendors. When I came in as a freshman in 2021, it was the fan-favorite Crepe Studio with the “Nutty Blue Jay” and Daniel the Crepe Guy. A year later, a sandwich station moved in, and I frequented for their chipotle ham sandwiches with apple slices, which were both filling and cheap. Now that I am no longer on a meal plan, I haven’t gone back to CharMar, and I didn’t catch news of The Bun Shop addition until I saw a friend with their classic “Granny Turnover” on campus. Of course, I had to review it, but first, I needed to return to their original spot.
We have a chilly weekend ahead of us, but there is still plenty to do around town! Check out different events going on this weekend, both in and outside.
Matcha has evidently become one of the delicacies of coffee shops and stores in the past decade, with it regularly appearing on most menus. Its savory and earthy taste attracts people, and its popularity seems to keep growing. Now imagine your favorite treats — ice creams, cakes, cheesecakes and more — but all in the flavor of matcha.
When I imagine the ideal date night dinner setting, three words come to mind: surprise, serenity and style. I've scoured Baltimore to find places that tick all these boxes. The restaurants I've picked out are perfect for a night out with your partner, where you can enjoy unexpected culinary delights and a relaxed vibe for deeper conversations. Each venue presents a fusion of global flavors, crafted with the chefs' unique artistry and set in distinctively stylish environments.
When planning a group celebration — be it a birthday party or a post-exam unwind — one key task is to find a venue that checks all the boxes: a variety of flavors, reasonable costs, generous dish portions and, most importantly, the right atmosphere. Given their emphasis on harmony and family, East Asian cuisines often make great choices for social events. In this article, I've curated a list of five restaurants within a 40-minute drive from Homewood, perfect for those heartwarming moments with friends.
Welcome back to school! The first weekend of the spring semester is bustling with fun things to do around the city, headlined, of course, by the AFC Championship game that is bringing the Kansas City Chiefs and Taylor Swift to town!
This last events article of the semester is a special one! We will look ahead to all the fun winter festivities and see the many ways to celebrate the holiday season in Baltimore. It’s a great way to relieve stress during finals week or to celebrate the end of the semester. Happy holidays — Events This Weekend will be back next year!
Whether fueling their caffeine dependence, partaking in an established daily ritual or simply craving to purchase a beverage or snack, college students are notorious for loving coffee. Hopkins is no exception, with students seemingly carrying around cups of coffee and tea wherever you look. My three months here have been marked by the daily excitement of rewarding myself with a beverage (currently obsessing over lavender and dirty chai lattes) or a snack from one of our on-campus cafes.
What better way to unload stress from the perpetual midterm season than a good old-fashioned trip to the movies? I can say for myself that after my week, that was just what I needed. Even though I’m lucky enough to live close to home, it’s been a while since I’ve seen my mom, so I asked her if she wanted to spend a day at the theater with me.
We are almost at the end of the semester! Head downtown before your finals and enjoy all the winter festivities.
If you are staying in Baltimore for the start of the break, you’ll be thankful to hear about these great events!
After hearing whispers and murmurs of a niche, award-winning ramen place nearby (no, not Kajikan), my friends and I made our way to Toki Underground to investigate the rumors. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with friendly smiles, along with an artsy and modern atmosphere: a ceiling covered with broken skateboard pieces, a glass shelf encompassing model cars, a wall enriched with seemingly random photos, low-hanging lights streaming across the polished wooden surface bar and baby Yoda figurines (bonus points!) nestled between cabinets. The soft lighting, coupled with vibrant embellishments, unexpectedly unveiled a cozy feeling throughout the restaurant. Although the interior of the restaurant is filled with arbitrary decorations, they seamlessly harmonize to create a distinct homey and artsy aura.
I am no coffee sommelier. I was never the type of person who drank coffee often and never really enjoyed the taste of coffee. In high school, I always thought, “Instead of drinking coffee, why not just sleep more?” But as with many other aspects of life, for better or worse, college has changed me into a growing caffeine addict. Now I think to myself, “Why go to bed when I can live off of espressos and energy drinks?”
Leave campus and your midterms behind for all kinds of fun activities around the city this weekend, from comedy shows to farmers' markets!
One of the main reasons why I wanted to go on this mountain biking trip was due to my nagging desire to leave campus and get away from the library and the never-ending cycle of homework. The trip was going to give me a change of pace, a change of scenery, and a chance to do something outside of the norm. This was not the first time I had wanted to go on one of the trips hosted by the Johns Hopkins Outdoors Club (JHOC), but this desire is shared by many other students, so this was my first opportunity before the winter and the final stretch of the semester. You can imagine my joy when I found out I was moved onto the roster and I was actually going to go mountain biking!
