Feb. 23: Bottomless Cereal Sundays

101 Baltimore, 1118 S. Charles St., #101. 10-2 a.m. $10.

We love brunching in Baltimore; that’s been established. But, after a while, even the most dedicated brunchers can tire of the rotating cast of omelettes, jam-packed skillets, and French toast options. Luckily, 101 Baltimore is offering a new spin on a classic breakfast food, with an all-you-can-eat cereal bar every Sunday. Roll out of bed and head to the Federal Hill bar to watch cartoons and sip mimosas while you crunch on everything from Fruity Pebbles to Cocoa Puffs.

Plan out this tequila-soaked holiday using our guide to specials, one-of-a-kind drinks, and beat-the-clock deals, and don’t forget to nosh on a taco or two in between margaritas.

During this program to honor the legacy of Harriet Tubman, an American hero remembered for her efforts to rescue enslaved people before and during the Civil War, local reenactor Gina Lee will share a narrative of Tubman’s life and achievements at the Light Street branch of the Enoch Pratt Library. Reacquaint yourself with the historical figure’s vital place in our local and national history, and watch in awe as Lee, who previously transformed into Tubman for Baltimore’s Legends and Legacies Jubilee event, portrays how she lived, worked, worshipped, and led others out of slavery.
