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

EAT

March 11: Music & Food Trucks at Boordy

Boordy Vineyards, 12820 Long Green Pike, Hydes. 1-5 p.m. Free.

Although spring hasn’t quite sprung, Boordy Vineyards is starting its season of Trucks N’ Tunes this weekend with live music from local band Steppin’ Out and homemade comfort Italian food from Pasta La Vista Baby food truck—because it is officially still winter. Enjoy the food, music, and plenty of local wine tastings, of course, inside Boordy’s rustic farmyard. With sprawling green countryside in the background and rows of ready-to-burst grapes all around, it’s sure to quickly make you forget about the last lingering chill.

DRINK

March 11: Bend & Brew

Peabody Heights Brewery, 401 E. 30th St.10 a.m. $20.

We all know the struggle—come Saturday morning, do you go to the gym, or go have breakfast cocktails with friends? Luckily this weekend, you don’t have to choose. This Saturday, Real Flexi Yoga is teaming up with Peabody Heights Brewery to give you the chance to take downward dog before downing some grog (or, actually, some locally crafted brews like Old Oriole Park lagers). We can’t think of many better ways to start your weekend.

SEE

March 12: St. Patrick's Day Parade

699 Washington Pl. 2 p.m. Free.

The next week will definitely have you seeing green—but not out of jealousy. For more than 50 years, the St. Patrick’s Day parade has had Baltimoreans flooding the sidewalks and streets to celebrate the Emerald Isle. From the Washington Monument to the Inner Harbor, anything green goes as you follow hundreds of floats, bagpipers, Irish dancers, police brigades, the mayor, and much, much more. Before you grab your spot on Charles Street, don’t forget to start your morning at the Shamrock Shindig at Pierce’s Park, complete with live Celtic music by the Shamrogues, food trucks, beer and wine, and a kid’s zone for family fun.

HEAR

March 11: Tom Hall's Final Concert

Goucher College, Kraushaar Auditorium, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road, Towson. 8-10 p.m. $25-40.

It’s been 35 wonderful years with Tom Hall at the head of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society. Alas, there comes a time for people to move on, and this summer marks the end of Hall’s impressive tenure. This weekend, the conductor (and host of Midday on WYPR) will take to the stage one last time alongside the full chorus and orchestra in his final concert. The program will celebrate his tenure with diverse selections that are meaningful to both Hall and the chorus that he has come to call family over the past three-plus decades, such as Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, Copland's Walls of Zion, and Lauridsen's Sure on this Shining Night. And if you miss the finale, don’t fret—you can still tune in to hear Hall on 88.1 FM, Monday through Friday at noon.

DO

March 11: BROS Swanktacular

Space 2640, 2640 Saint Paul St. 7-11 p.m. $60.

Almost a decade ago, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society began an indelible part of our alternative artistic landscape, bringing us colorful, creative, wild, and wacky shows unlike anything the city had seen before. This weekend, show your gratitude for BROS during their third annual benefit party. Featuring Occasional Symphony, the collaborative rock opera group will perform its very first rock opera, Gründlehämmer, a show about Medieval farming musicians overcoming tyranny, featuring the original shadow-play. Dress in your own Old English garb, dig into bites from local favorite eateries (Birroteca, Blue Pit BBQ, The Food Market), and tip back some mead—literally—with Charm City Meadworks, plus The Brewer’s Art and Union Craft Brewing.
