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

EAT

March 24: Ekiben's 1-Year Anniversary Party

Union Craft Brewery, 1700 Union Ave. 5-9 p.m. Free.

This Friday, Baltimore’s favorite bun-loving bros will celebrate a year of business with a party at Union Brewery’s taproom. Throw back a Duckpin, enjoy live music from Union’s own J. Mooy, and swallow down all the steamed buns you can possibly consume. With a new menu, you can expect to see classic American food with the Ekiben Asian street food influence we’ve come to love. And don’t forget to come back on Sunday for Union’s Pinewood Derby, an afternoon filled with cold beer and old-school four-wheeled waggery.

DRINK

March 25: Make Cider with MillStone

MillStone Cellars, 2029 Monkton Road., Monkton. 10 am.-12 p.m. $45.

This warm weather marks the start of spring and with it comes a thirst for a refreshing glass of cider. On Saturday, make a trip to Monkton for a morning at MillStone’s rustic wooden farmhouse where you’ll create your very own five-gallon bucket of hard apple juice. You’ll get to press apples, learn about fermentation, and take home your own final product. The only downside—you have to wait about eight months for it to be ready. In the meantime, shake the lingering winter chill and warm your belly with some of the cidery’s crisp, oak-aged sips.

SEE

March 25: Pride of Baltimore's 40th Anniversary

Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine, 2400 E. Fort Ave. 12:30-2:30 p.m. & Broadway Pier, S. Broadway & Thames St. 4-7 p.m. Free.

For 40 years, the Pride of Baltimore has been an icon on the Inner Harbor, serving as a tribute to the Baltimore Clippers, the vessels that helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom. After the tragic sinking of Pride I in 1986, the Pride of Baltimore II has been sailing in honor of her predecessor for the past two-plus decades. Now in its fourth decade, Pride season kicks off this weekend with Maryland Day deck tours, captain and crew meet-and-greets, and history lessons at the hallowed Fort McHenry. Cross the gangway and enjoy the first weekend of spring aboard the ship.

HEAR

March 26: Stevie Nicks

Royal Farms Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St. 7 p.m. $66-600.

More than 50 years after Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks wrote her first song, the mysterious songstress is still enchanting audiences. Now, she’s on tour promoting her latest release, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, a collection of never-before-released gems, some of which date back to her pre-Fleetwood Mac days. Spend your Sunday bewitched as the living legend—joined by special guests The Pretenders—casts her spell in Baltimore.

DO

March 25: Grand Central's 25th Anniversary Party

Grand Central Nightclub, 1001 N. Charles St. 9 p.m.-2 a.m. Free.

After the loss of local haunts like Club Hippo and Jay’s on Read, Grand Central remains a final stronghold for the local gay community. This Saturday, the bar will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a party of epic proportions. Known for its killer karaoke nights and jam-packed dance parties, this Mount Vernon nightlife staple will ring in its quarter-century milestone with must-dance music by DJ Daniel Biltmore, giveaways every hour, an ice luge, and free cover all night. Have a relaxing evening in the old-style pub bar, shoot some pool in the loft, or boogie the night away at the disco.
