Things to do in Baltimore this week 1/21/19

This post is coming to you as I lay poolside in Key West. Is it snowing in Baltimore yet? I’ll be back tomorrow to find out. On Tuesday I’m going to Taste of the Marketplace at the Mount Vernon Marketplace. Looking forward to sampling some good eats with friends. On Thursday I’m spending an evening at the Walter’s Art Museum. Did you know they are open later on Thursday’s? It’s free! Taking it easy for a couple of days and then I’m attending Discover Charm City: GalPal Fitness at Brick Bodies Rotunda. I need to work on my fitness and this series is a fun way to exercise and meet new people. It’s not easy fitting exercise in to my schedule but I make it happen. Plenty of new year, new you type activities to jump start your resolution.

On “Nineteen Eighty Four”
7:30PM – 9:30PM
Old Major
900 S. Carey St, Baltimore
In a speech we read last month, the 1969 “Address to the American Physical Society,” Vonnegut calls Orwell «A man I admire almost more than any other man.» One of the most influential books of the 20th century, 1984, similarly to Vonnegut’s novel Player Piano, is the story of a rebel defending humanity in a technocratic dystopia. It’s a story that is all too relevant in our era of intense political disagreement, technological advance, and increased influence of State power. For enthusiasts, initiates, and the unacquainted, fans of Vonnegut and Orwell alike; anyone interested in reading thoughtful and entertaining science fiction/literature with a humanistic bent.

Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. Company features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best known songs.

Function Coworking Community

Man #3, a rape victim, was just told by the prosecutor he needs to act more straight on the stand. All three men are soon joined by John, who runs into the closet just after his first gay sexual encounter. The four men explore the varied reasons one might closet oneself in this cross-generational look at being in the closet, leaving the audience to wonder: can any one of them walk out?

What is permanent? What are the artifacts we will leave behind? What happens to the lightweight, inconsequential objects we call disposable but are in fact as enduring as the things we intend to last? What is the permanent nature of these temporary objects of convenience, many of which sustain our existence but cost so little to produce they are often given away? Once disposed of, these objects cease to exist in our minds, but they continue to exist somewhere else, somewhere out of sight. How do we reconcile their transience in our lives with their longevity in the world? This work seeks to understand these objects by transforming them, by seeing them in new terms — perhaps in the way the rest of the natural world sees them, rather than how we do. ON VIEW: JAN 26 – MAR , HOURS: TUE-SAT | 11AM-7PM

Old Westminster Winery
1550 Old Westminster Rd, Westminster
This January we’re putting a Maryland spin on an ancient Burgundian tradition! Each year travelers head to Burgundy, France to celebrate Saint Vincent, the patron saint of winegrowers. Attendees tour the hosting village decorated with a kaleidoscope of paper mache flowers and local winegrowers open their cellars for wine tasting and barrel sampling! The Saint Vincent Festival will take place in Burgundy AND the rolling hills of Westminster, Maryland the same weekend! Join us at the winery for a festive weekend! We’ll feature live music, delicious seasonal fare, roaring fire pits, custom cocktails, and our winemaker, Lisa Hinton, will open the winery for tours and samples from her favorite barrels for tasting!

Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth at Fells Point Corner Theatre
Jan 18-Feb3, Fri & Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
Fells Point Corner Theatre
251 S Ann St, Baltimore
St. George’s Day in England, the Morning of the county fair, the local drifting soul and pied piper of chaos Johnny “Rooster” Byron stirs the souls of his countrymen to forego the comforts of modern suburban life and raise their spirits in the countryside. His family want to spend the day with him, thugs want to teach him a lesson, the authorities want rid of him, but Rooster just wants more out of life. Having played on the West End and then to Broadway (and back to the West End), Jerusalem is a darkly comic and modern meditation on the spirit of a nation.

In the Closet by Third Wall Productions
Jan 11-27, Fr & Sat 8PM, Sun 3PM
Function Coworking Community
4709 Harford Rd, Baltimore
The show takes place inside both a literal and metaphorical closet. It opens with three gay men entering the closet for vastly different reasons. Man #1 is struggling with the long-term illness (cancer) of his partner. Man #2 is struggling with aging in a community he’s finding quite superficial. Man #3, a rape victim, was just told by the prosecutor he needs to act more straight on the stand. All three men are soon joined by John, who runs into the closet just after his first gay sexual encounter. The four men explore the varied reasons one might closet oneself in this cross-generational look at being in the closet, leaving the audience to wonder: can any one of them walk out?

Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Returning to theaters across North America this fall, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS will present 15 thought-provoking, poignant, and very funny animated shorts from around the world. In a year when the best and worst of human nature has been on constant display, the works in this year’s show remind us of the universality of shared ideals, as well as the diverse challenges we face. “Animation is such a flexible and open-ended medium that it lends itself to exploring the innumerable aspects of what it means to be human,” says founder and curator Ron Diamond. “And this year’s program, as much as any of our past presentations, really illuminates human strengths and foibles, and the bonds that unite us across cultures and generations.” The show has a running time of 98 minutes and includes 15 films, four of which have qualified for Academy Award® consideration.
