The holidays are upon us. Quick! Everybody find your nearest ice skating rink, model train set, bar stool, or Christmas show. Just kidding, you don’t have to find any of those, because we’ve got your weekend planned for you below.
We’ve previously written about about visiting the Inner Harbor ice rink. This Friday, you have even more reason to get out there, do some figure eights, and watch Baltimore wipe out. That’s because if you wear purple (duh, it’s Friday) you get $1 off and if you head to the rink from 7 to 9 p.m., you get to visit with Poh. The rink is located in McKeldin Plaza at 101 Pratt Street, open every day (and on holidays) for newbies and experts alike. Adult tickets are $9, kids are $7, and skate rental is $3.
If you think the holidays are just the fanciest, best thing ever and are looking for a way to celebrate with 30 artists, 300 costumes, and 20 acts, then look no further than this weekend’s ticket giveaway to the Cirque Dreams Holidaze show at the Lyric theater. We have two free tickets for the Saturday, December 27 performance at 7:30 p.m. We will be randomly selecting our winner on Monday at noon. Just comment on this post with the best holiday gift you have ever received or given to win.
Do you or your little one have great dreams of being a train conductor? We have a holiday oasis for you: the Highlandtown Train Garden. Head to the firehouse every Saturday and Sunday from 11a.m. to5p.m. until January 1 and be transported into a wintery world where trains rule. Entry is free. The train garden is located at Firehouse # 41, 520 S. Conkling Street.
If you’re the type that thinks the holidays are great because of time off to drink, then you may want to head to one of our favorite bars on the edge of Canton, Knotty Pine, and post up this Saturday night. That’s because they are having a Christmas pajama party this Saturday night (forget the ugly sweater thing). Head over for drink specials and prizes for the best pjs.
Experience a Christmas Carol with a Baltimore twist. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company at 7 S Calvert Street will host this classic Christmas show all weekend, with matinees at 2 p.m. and evening shows at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now from $19 to $45.
