Things to do in Baltimore this week 2/27/17

The week of Mardi Gras is upon us.  For some it is just another reason to eat good food and drink.  For others it is the last hurrah as you usher in Lent for 40 days.  I’m one of those people getting their ashes on Wednesday and giving something up for 40 days.  Brace yourselves; the reaction of my friends has been one of shock and horror.  I’m giving up restaurants.  *gasp*  How will you do it?  But what about your Instagram followers?  We will all get through this together.  I’ll be making a lot of home cooked meals for the next 40 days plus I have a new wok and my ever faithful Kitchen Aid pasta attachment to help me survive.  I’ll still be attending the events that I’ve already purchased tickets for like Rye’s Up, Rye Rocks, Schola, and EmporiYUM so I will see you all around.  Think of me as you attend many of the delicious restaurant pop-ups and wine dinners that will inevitably occur during this time.  Wish me luck if you see me out on Tuesday night.

Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar provides a framework for Gardley to deepen our understanding of one of America’s most complex, compelling historical figures and explore the tumultuous landscape of ideology and activism in the 1960s.
7:30 PM: “Julius Caesar”  Tackling essential questions about the balance of ambition, personal loyalty, and love of country, Shakespeare’s timeless political masterpiece has never been more relevant. Through the story of Julius Caesar, a rising political star torn down by his most trusted allies, audiences witness the art of persuasion, the ugliness of backroom politics, and the historical patterns we can’t stop repeating.

Maya’s work results from her experiences, her struggles, and intimate conversations with God, whom she acknowledges as her source of life, hope and truth. Frustrations like perfectionism, low self-esteem, and anxiety inspire Maya’s substantive, thought provoking, original lyrics, complimented by her raw, soulful sound. She hopes to relay her story through song to encourage others who may be experiencing similar doubts about their worth and their purpose.
