Things to do in Baltimore this week 8/22/21

Hey friends! Still getting into the swing of things. So much uncertainty is hard to deal with. I went to see Steel Magnolias at Everyman Theater last week and it was great! Definitely a tear-jerker. Everyman Theater is requiring proof of vaccination or negative test to attend shows. Trying to share a variety of fun events that are both indoor and outdoor. I am getting excited as we get closer to September – lots of theaters are getting ready to premier their new seasons. I’ve missed live theater so much!

Steel Magnolias
August 10 – September 5
Everyman Theater
Written by Robert Harling and Directed by Casey Stangl
Over the course of three years, six inimitable women share their lives with wit, warmth, humor, and intelligence, through the highest highs and the lowest lows. A perennial fan favorite of stage and film, Steel Magnolias celebrates the everyday power of female friendship.

Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week
August 6 – 29
This summer, Maryland Vegan Eats welcomes back returning restaurants and invites new restaurants to participate in a compassionate campaign by encouraging them to offer healthy, plant-based, and/or vegan items as part of their menu selections. Maryland is an exciting and vibrant state full of unique counties, towns, and neighborhoods boasting incredible diversity. Nothing brings people and community together quite like good food. The mission of Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is to bridge the gap by increasing the awareness, benefits, and accessibility of a plant-based diet through a fun, innovative, and community-based experience. From August 6 through August 29, join us in welcoming back vegan and veg-friendly restaurants during the summer edition of Vegan Restaurant Week: Welcome Back, Maryland! Restaurants are being asked to promote healthier menus with whole food plant-based items that can benefit your health, reduce animal cruelty, and save the environment. Enjoy a variety of plant-based and/or vegan menu items. Customers will get to cast their vote on their favorite dishes. All customers are welcome, not just vegans! Are you up for the challenge? Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is a great treat for everyone, vegan or not.

Cuban Cuisine
6PM – 9PM
With the relaxing of relations between the United States and Cuba there has been a renewed interest in the cuisine of this tiny island that lies just 90 miles from the tip of Florida. Since, until lately, all the restaurants were controlled by the government, the real cuisine of the country has been preserved in the home kitchens or Paladares, independently owned underground restaurants that are sustained by the nation’s thriving black market. Join us as we explore the everchanging dishes of this unique country. Arrozo Congri or rice and black beans and Ropa Vieja, shredded beef, form the staples of the table. But we’ll also make Croquetas with ham, Lechón Asado, one of our favorite roasted pork dishes and to finish, the traditional Cuban flan. $79.99
