Feb. 29: Sweet and Savory

Prigel Family Creamery, 4853 Long Green Rd., Hydes. 7:30-11 p.m. $50.

Yes, this event takes place outside of the city, and yes, it’s worth the drive to indulge in sweet and savory bites from two beloved local businesses. During this exclusive tasting, Prigel Family Creamery and Neopol Savory Smokery will team up to serve attendees a wide variety of meats, cheeses, local wine, beverages, and even mystery ice cream flavors. Make the quick trip to Hydes for this intimate, candlelit affair, and revel in the chance to eat as many delicious dairy products as possible.

Feb. 29: Leap Day Specials

Locations, times, and prices vary.

If you think that Baltimoreans will use just about any holiday as an excuse to day drink, well, we would have to agree. This Saturday, celebrate leap day at one (or a few) of the local haunts that are serving up drink specials or hosting special activities to commemorate the extra day. Make your leap-year plans using our guide to events like a time capsule burial at Monument City Brewing Company or an open bar at Bond Street Social that will give you a hangover to last until 2024.

March 1: Four Women: Catlett, Holiday, Richardson, Scott

Reginald F. Lewis Museum, 830 E. Pratt St. 2-5 p.m.$20-25.

In conjunction with both Women’s History Month and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum’s ongoing exhibition, Elizabeth Catlett: Artist as Activist, the downtown institution will host a performance of the production Four Women, inspired by the Nina Simone song of the same name. Spend Sunday afternoon learning about the lives of trailblazing women, including Elizabeth Catlett, Billie Holiday, Gloria Richardson and Joyce J. Scott, through an inspiring song and dance, and stick around to view the exhibition one last time before it closes later that day.

Feb. 29-March 1: Frozen Harbor Music Festival

Power Plant Live! 34 Market Pl. $20-225. Fri 7 p.m.-Sun 1:30 a.m.

Not even the icy weather could stop this party. Now in its fourth year, this music festival will take over nine rock venues across downtown, including Rams Head Live! and Mosaic Night Club and Lounge, for three days of nonstop sets by more than 100 rising acts. Make plans to hop from venue to venue to catch performances by hip hop, rock, and rap groups in the heart of the Inner Harbor. Don’t forget to grab a picture with the party-animal polar bear mascot, Koasty, before the weekend ends.

Feb. 29: Viva Brasil

Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave. 8-11 p.m. $15-18.

Shake, shimmy, and swing off the mid-winter blues during this annual Carnival celebration at Creative Alliance. While this jam-packed event features everything from costumed dancers to forro and samba dance lessons, the real draw lies in the live music that is sure to bring everyone to the dance floor. Dance the night away to Brazil and New Orleans-inspired tunes by Nation Beat and the JP Silva band all night long.
