March 22-24: Full Tilt Brewing Co. Opening
Full Tilt Brewing Co., 5604 York Rd. Fri. 3 p.m.-12 a.m., Sat. 11 a.m.-12 a.m., Sun. 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. Free.
From artisan craft mead to IPAs named after revered macabre master Edgar Allen Poe, there are plenty of local beer options in Baltimore. And personally, we believe that there’s no such thing as too many breweries. This weekend, celebrate the official grand opening of Full Tilt Brewing Co. with a three-day-long bash to christen this new brewery and taproom on York Road. With new beer releases, arcade games, and live music, this Govans brewery will be a contender for your favorite hangout spot after this weekend.
To March 31: B&O Best in Service
B&O Railroad Museum, 901 W. Pratt St. Free.
The B&O Railroad has always been a point of pride for our city, but, as with many chapters in history, the service of African Americans and their contributions to the railroad is largely unrecorded. Through the end of the month, visit the downtown railroad museum to take in paintings by artists Dan Content and Roy Speter that depict prominent African Americans like Thurgood Marshall and Maggie Hudson, as well as many unsung workers, who helped build arguably the most revolutionary railroad in our nation’s history.
Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St. 8 p.m. $10.
You may have seen this rising rapper playing MC with DJ Trillnatured during the Version dance parties at The Crown or making a cameo in local singer-songwriter RoVo Monty’s iconic “Pretty in Pink” music video, but you don’t know this fearless artist until you see them perform live. Hear them seamlessly flow between high-energy hits such as “Get Ya Life” and smooth, swaggering rhymes in “Drippin,” before sharing the stage with rapper DDm, R&B duo Chiffon, and RoVo Monty during this much-anticipated show at Metro Gallery.
