March 3: Baltimore Bartenders Guild’s “Ryes Up"

Kimpton Hotel Monaco, 2 N. Charles St. 5-8 p.m. $75.

Although scientists are closer than ever to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, there’s still about 30,000 people nationwide living with the genetic disorder. Now in its eighth year, this rye whiskey-inspired fundraiser brings some of the city’s top bartenders under one roof to revel in the amber-colored spirit and support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. With more than 20 concoctions, eats from 15 local restaurants, and a silent auction, it’ll be hard to tell whether the warm feeling in your chest is from the whiskey buzz or helping to find a cure.

I mean, can you believe? Star of the Netflix series Queer Eye and the Getting Curious podcast Jonathan Van Ness is gracing Charm City with his spunk, sass, and show-stopping locks for one night at the Hippodrome Theatre. There’s no telling what this stop on the Road to Beijing tour will bring because while he’s happy to set you up with a new do, this grooming guru is always ready to talk politics and social justice. Come for the comedy, and stay for the tea, honey.
