Baltimore Restaurant Week !!!!
July 22 – July 31
Participating Restaurants
All over Baltimore!
Baltimore is a delicious city. From hand crafted street eats to James Beard Award-winning chefs, our restaurateurs are torchbearers for creative and diverse cuisine from all around the world. And luckily for all of us, July 22-31 is Baltimore Restaurant Week, when eateries around the city are offering special, prix-fixe menus designed to give diners a taste at a discounted price.  Two-course lunch and brunch menus range from $12-20, and three-course dinner menus range from $20-35. Try somewhere new, grab lunch instead of eating at your desk, have a date night (or three), because the price is right. Restaurants aren’t skimping on the food, instead they are showcasing their chefs and menus in hopes of luring you back as a forever customer, as a Baltimore believer, as a friend in food. Make reservations at www.BaltimoreRestaurantWeek.com or by calling participating restaurants.

The Summer Slaughter Tour is an annual metal music tour held every year since 2007. It originated in North America in 2007 and has toured in Canada in 2008, Europe in 2008, and Australia and New Zealand in 2009. Billed as “The Most Extreme Tour of the Year”, Summer Slaughter has earned a reputation as being one of the few summer tours to cater exclusively to fans of extreme forms of metal music. Starting in 2012, Summer Slaughter began to add more progressive metal bands to their lineups, seeing Between the Buried and Me co-headline with Cannibal Corpse. Periphery also played Summer Slaughter 2012, and came back during Summer Slaughter 2013, along with progressive metal bands Animals as Leaders and The Ocean. The focus on progressive metal that year was controversial, and death metal focused lineups returned in 2014, seeing Morbid Angel headline.

Field Day
12PM – 6PM
Waterfront Partnership
650 S Exeter St, Ste 200, Baltimore
Think back to Field Day as a kid – a day of fun outside with your friends, eating good food (snack packs, anyone?) and playing games. We think it’s time to bring back some of the fun! Join us on July 30th for Waterfront Partnership’s 1st Annual Field Day! Yard games will be available all afternoon, including Bubble Ball Soccer ($5 drop in games), Corn Hole, Bear Pong and Giant Jenga. There will also be a Tie-Dye t-shirt station, where the first 250 attendees to sign up and attend the event will receive a free Field Day t-shirt to tie-dye (or bring your own shirt).
Vendors such as Ekiben, Snake Hill, Dooby’s, The Charmery and local cocktail bar Sugarvale will be on-site to serve food and drinks. A live DJ will provide entertainment.
The field day competition will take place from 1pm to 4pm. Teams will compete in five relay-style races including a wheelbarrow race, a beach ball carry race, a water sponge relay, sack race and a crab walk. An awards ceremony will be held after the competition to honor the winners. Teams of eight can sign up online in advance to compete in the field day tournament for $5 per person. To register visit http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=xetrdbqab&oeidk=a07ecuvwyudb96381b1. Teams should arrive by 12:30pm for check-in. **All team members must be 21+ to participate!
Make sure to check out the Waterfront Partnership table on site the day of the event to see the future plans for Rash Field!  This event is free to attend! Food, drink, team competition and Bubble Ball tickets for purchase.
