Feb. 7-23: Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week

Locations, times, and prices vary.

Calling all plant-based eaters: Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is back with enough meatless specials, restaurant takeovers, and tasting activities to stay full all month long. The bi-annual affair features more than 20 participating green spots—including Baltimore favorites like The Land of Kush, Paulie Gee’s, and Wicked Sisters—to help you spend the weekend munching on the best vegan dishes in town.

Feb. 8: Nepenthe First Anniversary Party

Nepenthe Brewing Co., 3626 Falls Rd. 12 p.m.-12 a.m. Free.

Somehow it’s already been a year since Nepenthe Brewing Co. opened its doors, and we’re not ashamed to admit how many Space Jellyfish IPAs and orders of thick-cut fries we’ve downed in that time. Celebrate the Hampden brewery’s first birthday with food specials, a commemorative pint glass, as well as three new beers including an imperial stout, an IPA with tropical notes, and a double IPA. Raise a glass (or several) to this local staple, and stick around all day long to catch pours of limited-release versions of some of Nepenthe’s most popular beers.

Feb. 7-16: The Rocky Horror Picture Show—Valentine’s Edition

Baltimore Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. $45-65.

Who says The Rocky Horror Picture Show can only be experienced during Halloween? Turn up the heat ahead of Valentine’s Day with a date night full of kitschy mania, outlandish rituals like call-outs and cascading toilet paper, and singalongs with Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Rocky, and the whole Transylvania crew. Bring your sweetheart to see live performances during this special take on the 1975 cult film, which is almost guaranteed to leave them wanting more, more, more.

Feb. 7: Live Lunch with Emily Wolfe

WTMD, 1 Olympic Pl., Towson. 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Free.

Back in September, Texas guitarist Emily Wolfe rocked the WTMD First Thursday Festival and showed the Baltimore crowd why NPR described her sound as “stormy, seductive blues-rock thunder, with riffs for miles.” Ahead of her Friday night show at The 8X10, this rising artist will play a live midday set at WTMD’s Towson studio for fans who want to get to know the singer behind songs like “Atta Blues” and “Steady.” If you can’t leave the office during lunch, no worries, tune into 89.7 FM to broadcast the show.

Feb. 8: Melanin Market

Union Craft Brewing, 1700 W. 41st St. 12-5 p.m. Free.

In honor of Black History Month, Union Craft Brewing will transform its taproom into a full-blown marketplace packed with some of the city’s best black artisans, vendors, and performers. In between cheering on the Lethal Ladies Step Team and musician Spirulina Green, explore the pop-up's wide range of wares, including everything from custom notebooks and sporting goods to haircuts and vintage clothes. Don’t forget to slurp down a few half-shells from The Urban Oyster before heading home with your goodies.
