Five things to eat, drink, see, hear, and do with your Charm City weekend.


Feb. 4: Ice Cream for Breakfast at The Charmery

The Charmery, 801 W. 36th St. 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Free.

We know how hard it can be to get out of bed on Saturday morning. But better than any cup of coffee, ice cream is up for breakfast at The Charmery in Hampden. Come clad in your pajamas for funky, first-meal flavors like cornflakes and milk, grapefruit and brown sugar, and even cheddar grits, everything bagel, and avocado toast (we’re a little wary, but we’ll give them a sample spoon). Not to mention piping hot Belgian waffles to sop up your sweets. And don’t fret: there will be caffeine, too, with whole bean flavored scoops, cold-brew milkshakes, coffeegatos, and hot cups from Buddy’s Coffee. Rise and shine, indeed.


Feb. 5: Puppy Bowl XXIII Viewing Party at Jailbreak

Jailbreak Brewing Company, 9445 Washington Blvd., Laurel. 2-5 p.m. Free.

Let’s face it—we could all use some puppies right now. Luckily, the Puppy Bowl is upon us, with Animal Planet’s annual rough-and-tumble puppy rumble, including one tiny Team Fluff pinscher-shih tzu from Glen Burnie named King. With the Ravens out of the running, forget football and unwind with a few rounds of Scoville IPA and four quarters of unbearable cuteness. Best of all, there will be BBQ in tow, and your own four-legged friends (on leashes, mind you) are invited, too.


Feb. 4: Ornamenta

Impact Hub, 10 E. North Ave. 7-11 p.m. $75.

It’s been a little less than two years since the Baltimore Jewelry Center opened up in the glowing Centre building on North Avenue in Station North. Adding a hands-on element to the already artsy neighborhood, the nonprofit has become a vital part of the growing brood of maker spaces throughout the city, alongside the likes of OpenWorks, Station North Tool Library, and The Foundery. This Saturday, celebrate the jewelry center’s success and help push it into the future during its annual fundraiser. Browse breathtaking works by local artists, dig into badass biscuits from Blacksauce Kitchen, indulge in the open bar, and mingle with the who’s who of the city's vibrant art scene.


Feb. 4: MICA Spring Concert

Maryland Institute College of Art, The BBOX, 1601 W. Mt. Royal Ave. 7:30-10 p.m. $5-12.

You had us at Bond St. District. This Saturday, the bombastic hip-duo Bond St. District is headlining MICA’s Spring Concert—yes, spring, keep your heads up, we’ve got this—but there’s talent beyond DDm’s bona fide swagger and on-point style. Local rapper JPEGMAFIA will be there—sporting sharp, urgent raps and magnetic beats off his bold 2016 Black Ben Carson and upcoming Veteran—as will fellow rapper Butch Dawson and photographer-musician Micah E. Wood who collaborate on the infectious “Go Away.” Put on that song and try to not bob along in your desk chair.


Feb. 3: Save Your Soul

Lithuanian Hall, 851 Hollins St. 9 p.m.-2 a.m. $5.

Feeling stressed out from reading the news? Feeling lethargic from Netflix and chilling since the beginning of the year? Well, we’ve got the cure for you, and it’s simple, really. This Friday night, resist the urge to plop down on your couch and never get up. Instead, put on that fancy dress or that fly shirt you've been wanting to wear and head to the basement of Lithuanian Hall for one of the city’s best dance parties. With a few shots of virtya honey liqueur, some classic soul, funk, and Motown on the ones and twos, and a couple of sweaty spins around the dance floor, you’ll feel back to your energetic self in no time.
