June 28: Maryland Food Trucks Foodie Bash

Baltimore Museum of Industry, 1415 Key Hwy. 5-9 p.m. Free.

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate in National Food Truck Day than by indulging in tasty treats from rows and rows of local mobile kitchens. Join fellow foodies at The Baltimore Museum of Industry for a night of sampling delicious bites from 13 area purveyors, including fan favorites like Dough Boy Fresh Pretzel Co., Baltimore Crab Cake Company, and Deddle’s Mini Donuts. Best of all, the proceeds from this gut-busting event benefit Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland.

June 29: Drag Me to the Beach

Sandlot, 1000 Wills St. 11a.m.-1 p.m. $20.

Sun, sand, drinks, and a drag performance by Bombalicious—what more could you ask for? Head to Charm City’s “beach” bar in Harbor Point to watch this Drag Wars All-Star winner sashay around the waterfront, with a brunch cocktail or frozen drink in hand, of course. Whether you spend you two drink tickets on Bloody Marys, champagne, or canned beer and wine, you’re sure to be throwing dollar bills all afternoon long.

June 28-July 21: Hamilton

The Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center, 12 N. Eutaw St. Fri. 8 p.m., Sat. 2 & 8 p.m. $217-2,250.

After months of anticipation, the rapped musical phenomenon that has transcended Broadway and mainstream culture has finally made its way to Baltimore. Watch in awe as the historic story of founding father Alexander Hamilton’s life comes alive on the Hippodrome Theatre stage, featuring inspiring (and ridiculously catchy) songs. While open seats for the musical’s 32-show run are hard to come by, enter into the lottery drawing for the chance to win $10 tickets.

Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. 8 p.m. $12-14.

Be sure to stretch before heading to the Ottobar on Saturday night, because this all-local lineup of acts will have you dancing until last call. Bop along to a set by Baltimore indie-pop band Super City, featuring the group’s searing guitar solos, thunder-and-lightning drums, and synchronized moves, as well as performances by noise-pop band Manners Manners and alternative indie-pop artist Peach Face.

June 29: Yearfest

Earth Treks Hampden, 1700 W. 41st St., Suite 400. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Free.

In honor of its one-year anniversary of bringing the mountains to Medfield, Earth Treks is throwing an all-out party for its community of climbers. Stop by the climbing center’s birthday bash, which will be hopping with local food vendors, live music from Munk and Water Cycle, and free drinks from Union Craft Brewing and Wild Kombucha. Kick off this spot’s second trip around the sun with a game of giant beer pong, a few rounds of cornhole, or a chance to hit the wall for a quick climb.
