Frozen? Here are some eating, drinking, and do-gooder activities to warm your weekend, your heart, and hopefully your general body temperature. Is it spring yet?
Friday, November 15, 7 p.m.: Full Tilt Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout Release Party at Admiral’s Cup
If you haven’t salivated over the idea of Baltimore’s beloved Berger cookie in liquid form yet, you’ll have the chance to taste the highly anticipated local brew on Friday. Full Tilt will head to the Admiral’s Cup in Fell’s Point for the official release of its Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout. The promise: 30 pounds of wafers and 300 pounds of fudge per batch of the delicious cookie beer. Full Tilt says they’ll be bringing their branded pint glasses to give away to the first dozen people to order a Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout – and plenty of Berger cookies to garnish your glasses with as you drink the sweet stuff.
Saturday, November 16, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Planting Trees with Friends of the Patterson Park (then Eating Chipotle)
Get your hands dirty and work up a sweat while beautifying the park we all know and love. Friends of the Patterson Park plans to plant trees on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.. All interested volunteers should meet at the Pagoda at 9:30 a.m. They will provide tools and snacks for all volunteers. Then, after you’ve worked up an appetite, if you eat at Chipotle in Canton between noon and 3 p.m. and mention the Friends, they will donate 50 percent of the proceeds.
Saturday, November 16, 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.: Charm City Roller Girls Beltway Face-Off
Looking for a little alternative Saturday night entertainment? Head no further than our local arena, where the Charm City Roller Girls’ and the D.C.
