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

EAT

March 17: Lucky You! St. Paddy's Day at Mount Vernon Marketplace

Mount Vernon Marketplace, 520 Park Ave. 5-11 p.m. Free.

Whether you’re guzzling glasses of Guinness or sipping on Shamrock Shakes, toast the Emerald Isle this weekend at the Mount Vernon Marketplace. On St. Patrick’s Day, the midtown mainstay will be hosting a night full of Ireland-approved treats, like Leprechaun cocktails at The Local Oyster, cheap Irish whiskey at Between 2 Buns, themed sweets at Edible Flavors, and of course, corned beef and cabbage at the Big Bean Theory. Grab some green garb, be it olive, aquamarine, or chartreuse, and start your weekend early with a party that's sure to have you saying “Slainte.”

DRINK

March 17: Diamondback Brewing's "Gone Till November" Release

Diamondback Brewing, 1215 East Fort Ave. 11 a.m.-12 a.m. Free.

Celebrate St. Patty’s Day the way the Irish do—with lots of craic (aka "fun," in Gaelic, we swear) and some good beer. All day Friday, make your way to McHenry Row for the release of Diamondback Brewing’s “Gone Til November” Oat IPA in limited edition cans. This creamy, fruity, India Pale Ale is the perfect winter-spring in-between, and with food trucks on site like Mexican On The Run and Jamaican Mi Crazy, you’ll be itching for warm weather before you finish your last sip.

SEE

March 18-19: Stomp

Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, 12 N. Eutaw St. Sat. 2 & 8 p.m., Sun. 1 p.m. $42-124.

It would be hard to come by someone who didn’t have just a little bit of envy watching the Stomp crew on stage, making a livelihood out of everyone’s childhood dream of smashing pots, pans, and garbage cans—all while not getting yelled at by your mom. (The New York-based eight-member troupe wouldn’t be caught dead with a drum or guitar.) This weekend only, catch them at the hallowed Hippodrome where they’ll use matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, and more to fill the theater with upbeat rhythms and unconventional sounds.

HEAR

March 18: Beya Likhari with Cal Rips, Joy Postell, and j. robb

Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. 8 p.m.-12 a.m. $12-15.

Beya Likhari is an artist to watch. Based in Baltimore, the local singer-songwriter is an up-and-coming gem, blending hip-hop and R&B with Bollywood and Punjabi music into a mesmerizing, soulful sound that’s simply stunning for a 25-year-old. With recent features in the likes of Saint Heron, The Fader, Nylon, BBC Radio, and Elle UK—not to mention the nearly 140,000 Soundcloud plays of her most recent EP, Love Letters from Lola—we expect Likhari's inspired lyrics and colorful electronic infusion to be one of the next big things to come out of our city. Catch her dreamy sound in Station North this Saturday during her first headlining show, featuring fellow area talents like Baltimore soul prodigy Joy Postell, producer J. Robb, and D.C. rapper Cal Rips.

DO

March 18: Annapolis Oyster Roast & Sock Burning

Annapolis Maritime Museum, 723 2nd St., Annapolis. 12-4 p.m. $25-75.

So it might not be in Baltimore, but one of our region’s most beloved spring rituals is that of the annual Annapolis sock burning and oyster roast. Keeping with the wonderfully weird tradition, attendees strip their socks to fuel a burning beach bonfire—the most appropriate way we can think of to signify the coming of barefoot boat season. While your mismatched hosiery roasts on the open fire, enjoy the Chesapeake’s bivalve bounty with unlimited raw and roasted oysters, plus lobster rolls, Bloody Marys, and live music by the waterfront. If you’re a briny barbarian, don’t forget to enter the oyster shucking competition, but if not, just sit back and slurp away. March does have an “r” in it, after all.
