Leisure is the section where we highlight the intriguing, exciting and all-around fun events and activities happening in Baltimore over the weekend.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Classes have ended, but finals have yet to begin. Take a study break by enjoying festive Baltimore events before heading home for the winter.
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.
As classes wind down and final season approaches, be sure to take some time for yourself this week. For those still in Baltimore, here are some festive, fun and wholesome ways to spend the weekend.
Holiday season is upon us, and I am ready for you, Mariah Carey. While everyone’s holiday plans look different this year, we here at The News-Letter have got you covered! We’re offering our favorite cocktails to enjoy over the next few months, regardless of which holidays you’re celebrating... provided you’re 21+.
Thanksgiving Break is just around the corner and some students will be going home to their families, many until Intersession begins in January. If this sounds like you, here are some ways you can enjoy your last fall weekend in Charm City (following COVID-19 guidelines, of course).
My newest fascination over the past couple of weeks has been trivia, which is partially related to the fact that I just discovered that Nepenthe Brewing Company has trivia every Wednesday. They are currently taking a hiatus due to increased COVID-19 restrictions in Baltimore City, but my team totally won $25 in bar cash at the most recent rendition.
Brunch can be served up in many forms, but one of the most appealing facets of a decent boozy brunch is the deals. Drinks at restaurants can get expensive, so if you’re a student doing some balling on a budget, here’s a list of some of the best brunch deals in Baltimore... provided you’re 21+.
Join Pandemic Clothing Company, a woman- and Black-owned business, for its virtual launch party. The launch will feature a DJ, giveaways, mixologist prizes and more.

It’s always the hidden restaurants that are the most delicious.
Preston Gardens in Mount Vernon is offering a pet-friendly happy hour with music, free snacks, free beer or wine, a pet-friendly photo booth and games for people and pets. The best dressed dog wins a prize! Free.
Enough people have either posted on social media or talked about going to Nepenthe Brewing Company that I felt inclined to get a group together and go myself. Located right off of the Main Street in Hampden, Nepenthe offered a lively atmosphere, plenty of seating and, most importantly, awesome food and beer.
A tribe of 20 goats arrived at the Wyman Park Dell last Thursday afternoon, tasked with munching on the overgrown shrubs of the hillside across the street from the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA).
