Flipping February. It’s made all of us (except for the die-hard snow enthusiasts) officially detest winter. But yesterday’s snow storm kept most of us at home or roaming to bars to catch up with neighbors, so we really can’t complain. In addition, the community participated in an somewhat positive meeting with the people who needed to hear from us the most. In case you missed it, here’s our take from the “basement” contingent of the meeting. Things are looking up, Canton! It’s time to indulge ourselves with some fab, February love for the weekend.
Before we begin, there’s this neighborhood statue from yesterday for your viewing pleasure:
Friday, February 14 3 a.m.: House of Cards Season II Dropped
Things are cancelled. The snow sucks. Whether work is canceled or not, celebrate Valentine’s Day with this “aha” moment: the second season of House of Cards – that twisted political drama filmed in Baltimore City (where else?) – is online at Netflix now. It’s hours of entertainment away from the snow, ice, and thought of losing your parking spot. WIN.
Friday, February 14, all day: Valentine’s Day (last minute reservations?)
Whoops! The snow had you distracted and you forgot to schedule dinner reservations. Who’s available tonight? According to Open Table, Verde pizza is pretty open as far as reservations directly in Canton go. Pazo, in Harbor East, and Bond Street Social, in Fell’s Point, have (surprisingly) have early reservations available still, around 5 and 6 p.m. Chazz, a Bronx Original has some availability as well early and late. What we’re saying: this is not a lost cause and you won’t be stuck home frying chicken nuggets. Here’s a complete search of available tables. And for parking in this snowy terrain: try out Parking Panda (scroll down to see the map).
Friday, February 14 to 16, all day: Belgian Beer Fest at Max’s Taphouse
The smooth and perfect taste of Belgian beer deserves its own holiday, which is why, for the tenth year in a row, Max’s Taphouse has paid homage with its Belgian Beer Fest. Drop in to try over 160 Belgian beers on draft, 200 Belgian beers in bottles, and Belgian-inspired food. There’s no entrance fee, and each day of the festival will feature a specialty beer. Cheers.
Saturday, February 15th, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Oyster Fest 2014 at Chesapeake Wine Company
Tis oyster season! Time to celebrate. For the Chesapeake Wine Company, that means two hours of unlimited oyster-eating – at least four varieties on the half-shell; fried oysters; smoked oyster pizzas and quesadillas – with a choice of four different oyster-friendly alcoholic beverages. Tickets are $40 per person, must be bought in advance, and are required to attend. CALL410.522.4556 to check availability.
