Before we rappel into April showers, enjoy the last weekend of March and the amazing warm weather. Who knew how quickly seasonal depression could be lifted until they were sitting on the Beach at 2 p.m. on a Thursday?
There are several classic tropes about partying in college: the bar you go to with your fake ID; the best, worst and creepiest fraternities; and the postgame where everyone tries to forget their night. For college students in Baltimore, there is one more locale to add to that list: Urban Pirates.
Bored of your daily walk around campus? Venture about two miles over to The Maryland Zoo, located in northwest Baltimore’s historic Druid Hill Park.
Take advantage of the extra hour of sunlight (okay, maybe it’s not actually an extra hour, but an extra hour in the evening) to enjoy all the fun events that Baltimore has to offer.
When you think about space and rocket ships, Baltimore might not be the first place that comes to mind. Back in 1928, however, three close friends tasked themselves with building a rocket ship. They didn’t aspire to go to the moon: They wanted to go to Venus. And while these three Baltimore residents might have never actually made it to space, they did inspire an eccentric and delicious restaurant in Hampden.
We may be losing an hour to daylight saving time on Sunday, but that just means you should live the rest of your slightly shortened weekend to the fullest. Whether you’re participating in science trivia or virtually attending a racial justice concert, here are our upcoming events this weekend as we move into spring.
The month is April. The year is 2020. Overwhelmed by my newfound abundance of free time, I forced my left hand into a contorted grip on a borrowed guitar. Lacking the confidence that my fingers were placed on the correct strings, I performed a hesitant strum.
After 21 years spent waiting to legally go to a sophisticated Baltimore bar, two friends and I decided to mask up and make the short 15-minute walk to Dutch Courage, a cocktail bar located in the historic Old Goucher.
As we barrel into March, don’t let yourself get too down about midterm season. You don’t even have to go outside in order to entertain yourself this weekend — learn to make a hurricane cocktail or get in touch with your spooky side with Eastern Shore Paranormal all in the comfort of your own home.
Midterm season is incoming, so take some time to enjoy yourself — especially if you’ve had a long and stressful week. As always, we’ve collected events so you can look for something that tickles your fancy, from online Dungeons & Dragons improv to watching The Martian with a science activity.
There came a point during quarantine where I found myself on eBay for at least four hours every night. I scrolled through pages and pages of search terms like “Penny Lane Almost Famous jacket brown,” “1960s lace nightgown full-length pink floral” and “patterned wicker basket big picnic.” There was something comforting about navigating the website’s interface, which at first seems designed to make finding and purchasing listings impossible, that provided me a feeling of comfort and ease.
From staying in and watching a sci-fi film to competing in a masked cornhole tournament, check out this week’s list of fun events in Baltimore.
Valentine’s Day is all about love. Whether it’s your significant other or your friends, us at The News-Letter want to provide some suggestions for how you can celebrate with your loved ones safely — without sacrificing any of the fun.
Even though the school will be lifting the current restriction on all gatherings of any size this Thursday, we at The News-Letter ask that our readers be respectful of Baltimore and attend community events virtually this weekend. But being virtual doesn’t mean you can’t have fun — take a look!
Hopefully everyone had the chance to play in the snow earlier this week, but if you’re suffering from a bit of cabin fever (or are starting to get sick of hanging outside in the cold), here are a few fun activities to spice up your weekend.
Still in a jetlagged daze a week after flying in from Seoul, I got on the outbound bus number 22 at 7 a.m. to get to the mecca of doughnuts — the cruller central. When John F. Kennedy famously declared, “Ich bin ein Berliner” (“I am a jelly doughnut”), he probably was talking about these doughnuts.
As a half-Korean who rarely consumes Korean food while in Baltimore, I was excited to see Toki Tako opening up in the Rotunda. Whether or not you’re craving Korean food from home, I highly recommend checking it out: Toki Tako’s Korean food is tasty, accessible and fast.
Welcome back to our hybrid spring semester. Avoid cabin fever as the cold weather makes hanging outside less bearable and take note of this weekend’s coming events. And freshmen, maybe you’ll find something cool to do with new friends.

I’m one of the many who returned back to their hometown for the holidays, and due to quarantine restrictions, decided to stay there for the rest of the semester. After staying in Baltimore for the past couple of months, I’ve felt like a stranger in Miami more than ever.
