June 15: Eddie’s “Bark” Party

Eddie’s of Roland Park, 5113 Roland Ave. & 6213 N. Charles St. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Free-$10.

It seems like things in Baltimore are constantly changing—from restaurants and storefronts to entire city blocks—but one name we’ve been able to count on for more than 75 years is Eddie’s of Roland Park. This weekend, the beloved gourmet grocery store is throwing a Fido-friendly sidewalk soirée to benefit BARCS Animal Shelter, featuring a classic grill-out menu of beef, veggie, or chicken hot dogs with all of the fixin’s. Bring your four-legged friend to dance along to beats by DJ Baby Alcatraz and support this mutt-to-market cause.

Local vino lovers, rejoice! This boozy festival returns for its fifth year with a dizzying 160-plus wines from around the world, snacks by more than 30 gourmet food trucks, and tons of sweet treats such as adult snow cones.

June 14: Brandi Carlile

Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Pkwy. 5:30 p.m. $46-76.

If you joined the Grammy Awards audience by giving Brandi Carlile a standing ovation in your living room after her striking performance of “The Joke” at this year’s ceremony, you’re not alone. The world has (finally) caught onto this Seattle native’s awe-inspiring lyrics and Americana-roots sound, and this Friday, she’s bringing show-stopping hits like “Every Time I Hear That Song” and “Party of One” to the Merriweather Post Pavilion stage. Get there early to find a spot on the lawn and spend the evening belting out hit after hit from By The Way, I Forgive You.
