Sept. 20: Big Softy Pop-Up at North Avenue Market

North Avenue Market, 30 W. North Ave. 12-8 p.m. Prices vary.

Everyone’s favorite soft shell superhero is back at it with another pop-up, this time featuring game-day eats at North Avenue Market. Throw on your purple and head to the Station North gathering spot (limited indoor and outdoor seating will be available) for a Sunday Funday done right with free arcade games, $4 beers, and, of course, a feast of tailgate fare. Chef Craig Falk will be whipping up cheesy crab dip, shrimp and oyster po’ boys, and four different wing flavors inspired by some of his favorite Ravens—ranging from the mild “Big Truss” wings to “Judon Jerk” and spicy “T-Swizzle” varieties. Preorders are also open for those who’d prefer to enjoy the snacks while watching the game at home.
