Whether you’re in the mood for a gourmet grilled cheese, some tasty empanadas, or just a good old-fashioned Baltimore crab cake, you’ll be able to satisfy your hankering here.

Kids get in free, and there will be a bevy of activities for them, such as a dunk tank, inflatable slides, and even a mechanical bull. The best part?

July 27: Fluid Movement: The Water Ballet Opening

Druid Hill Park Pool, 2645 East Dr. 5 p.m. $5.

Whether you’re a tried-and-true fan or a first-timer, come experience this joy of a show that commemorates Fluid Movement's 20th year. This local performance art group walks the line between complex themes and delightful mediums in its productions, and the mesmerizing combination of synchronized swimming, water ballet, and community theatre is truly one of a kind. Of course, there will be the necessities: comedy, choreography, and a smidge of drama. If you can’t make it this week, Patterson Park Pool will host a series of shows next weekend, as well.

July 26: Baltimore’s Birthday Bash

The Assembly Room, 316 Guilford Ave. 7 p.m.-10 p.m. $65-125.

Although Baltimore doesn’t look a day over 289, make sure to show your love for Charm City on it's 290th birthday. There will be open bars stocked with local brews and spirits, locally baked birthday desserts, and a lively dance party headlined by DJ Impulse. If you’re feeling extra generous, consider buying a Good Neighbor ticket, which covers admission for yourself and another Baltimorean active in the community. Proceeds from the party will benefit Live Baltimore’s promotion of Baltimore City’s residential neighborhoods.
