Things to do in Baltimore this week 2/6/17

This blog entry is brought to you by the letter “M”, for Mimosa.  I just finished getting my monies worth of bottomless mimosas at The Five and Dime Ale House.  I apologize if the Sunday section of this entry has some errors.  Anyways, lots of fun to be had this week.  I would invite you to join me at some of my activities but they are sold out, here’s looking at you Fondue Class at Schola.  Maybe I will catch you at the 2nd Anniversary Party for the Local Fry instead.  Until then, enjoy watching the Super Bowl.  Tag me on Instagram, I want to see what you all are eating for the big game today!  I’ll be making quesadillas in my fireplace with my new cast iron cooking iron.  Wish me luck!

Introduction: How To Vegan
7PM – 9PM
Zeke’s Coffee
4607 Harford Rd, Baltimore
Hi–we’re a new vegan food business based in Hamilton-Lauraville. We’re passionate about being vegans and want to support and make it easier for you to make vegan choices. This is the first session in our free educational series “How To Vegan.” This workshop is for anyone who is looking to learn more about the benefits of the vegan lifestyle with regard to animal rights, environmental concerns, and personal health. You don’t need to be a vegan or vegetarian to attend–just have an open mind and questions.  In this introductory session, we will cover the basics of veganism, introduce ourselves, discuss local resources, answer any questions you may have, and prioritize future workshop topics based on interest (e.g. vegan convenience foods at the local supermarket, finding the right plant-based milk for every use, raising a vegan child, vegan meal planning, vegan cheese tasting, and the like). All ages are welcome, but there may be discussion of the cruel realities of animal agriculture depending on the questions that are asked. We believe it’s important to understand these for-profit government-subsidized industries and how they treat both animals and their human workers, so each person can make informed decisions regarding the food they eat and the companies they support. A big “thank you!” to Zeke’s Coffee–they are letting us use their location after hours for this event. Vegan snacks will be provided. Hope to see you there!

Tom Grace presents Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long 60s
7:30PM – 9:30PM
Red Emma’s Bookstore Coffeehouse
30 W North Ave, Baltimore
Tom Grace, the author of Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties will be speaking about his recent book published by the University of Massachusetts Press. The book examines the long prelude leading up to of the most searing incidents of American history during the Vietnam Era, the killing of four students and the wounding of nine others during an antiwar protest in May 1970. One critique described the study as “a systematic deconstruction of many media-generated myths” among them that the campus was without an activist tradition, that the National Guard members were young and inexperienced, and that the killings led to an end to the era of mass protest.
Taking issue with these myths, Grace shows that Kent State was not a tragic anomaly. Rather, the campus movement was grounded in a tradition of activism extending back to labor battles and civil rights protests of the 1950s. Thus the fatal shootings at Kent State were the culmination of a conflict between the forces of radicalism and repression that unfolded throughout the decade of the 1960s.
Thomas M. Grace, Ph.D., is the author of Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties. He is an adjunct professor of American history at Erie Community College. He was among the thirteen students struck by the National Guard gunfire that killed four of his classmates.

An die Musik
409 N Charles St, Baltimore
Flutist Robert Dick and pianist Ursel Schlicht celebrate the release of their album The Galilean Moons, a suite inspired by each of the four Jovian moons discovered by Galileo, and co-created for the Festival Cervantino in Mexico. From the very beginning of the disc, without notice, the listener is thrown into the deep depths of improvisation caused by the incredible imagination and creative abilities of both instrumentalists. The avant-garde actions of the American-German duo boldly expand the spectrum of jazz improvisation on the unusual atonal solutions and innovative experiments in the field of compositional texture. — Robert Ratajczak, longplay.blog@gazeta.pl, May 2016

Najah Productions and Southern Fresh Kitchen present “Easy Like Sunday: A Pre-Valentine’s Day Brunch Party”! Come relax your mind, wine and dine, spend some easy Sunday time as we get together for a pre-Valentine’s gathering full of food, wine, vendors and song! As you sip on offerings from Sangria Sangria and enjoy the scrumptious selections of Southern Fresh Kitchen, you will be able to support a variety of creative vendors who will be bringing their wares. Chuck the Mad Ox will provide the musical setting, and the afternoon will be infused with the eclectic sounds of Reina Williams! Baltimore native Reina Williams uses her voice and innate penchant for lyricism to tap into the lightest and darkest parts of being human. Right now, we are all in extreme need of real connection—connection with the planet, with each other, and most importantly with our inner selves. Music has a beautiful way of slipping through the cracks in our armor and reaching the most familiar parts of our humanity. Reina’s music is like a soundtrack for healing, revealing, struggle, self-discovery, and returning to love. Tickets include brunch.
