Snow Day Food and Drink Specials

We give you six ways to enjoy your snow day to the fullest.

While some of us are stuck in traffic or glued to our desks for the day, there are plenty of other (read: better) ways to enjoy Baltimore’s first snow of the season. Here we’ve complied some food and drink specials to warm up anyone’s day.

Mahaffey’s Pub: No strangers to snow, the Denver-based Great Divide Brewing Company will have some of its beer featured at Mahaffey’s Pub in Canton. Starting at 3 p.m., guests can sip on Yeti, an espresso oak aged imperial stout while also enjoying Mahaffey’s steak night and giveaways that begin at 6 p.m. 2706 Dillon St., 410-276-9899.

Brewer’s Cask: The Federal Hill beer bar opened a few hours early, at noon today, and is offering three craft beers for $8. Customers can choose from 20 specialty craft beers on tap and also get a half-price burger (which is a new weekly special). 1236 Light St., 410-273-9377.

Sláinte Irish Pub: This Fells Point pub (now with a full three floors of enjoyment) is serving breakfast with $10 bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas. There will also be $6.50 Irish cheesesteaks and $3.50 S.I.P. pints (Sláinte’s house beer made by Oliver Brewing). Sports fans can FA Cup and NHL games live all day. 1700 Thames St., 410-563-6600.

Blue Pit BBQ: Starting just yesterday, Blue Pit BBQ in Woodberry is now serving lunch from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m. The menu includes items like a bratwurst sandwich on a pretzel roll, chopped brisket, Chesapeake pickleback slaw, and four-cheese mac. If that doesn’t keep you warm enough, the restaurant’s whiskey bar will also be open during lunch. 1601 Union Ave., 443-948-5590.

Hamilton Bakery: If you want to go a bit more wholesome, Hamilton Bakery will be offering a free large cup of coffee with a purchase of any pastry. And not just any coffee, but Zeke’s custom Hamilton Bakery Blend. 5414 Harford Rd., 410-254-0797.

The Wharf Rat: If it’s a huge fireplace you want to curl up next to, The Wharf Rat is your best bet. The bar is running its three half-pints for $8 special today, and the spot’s huge, open hearth will be roaring in the back bar. 801 S. Ann St., 410-276-8304.
