- Tomorrow (!), Thursday, February 24th, the Maryland Science Center is holding one of their "Science Uncorked" series of wine tasting and learning events. This one, called "Que Syrah Shiraz," focuses (obviously) on syrah/shiraz. These events sound like so much fun - one day I'm going to make it to one! (Tickets are $50 non-members, $45 members.)
- On Friday February 25th, starting at 9 PM, there will be a "Midnight Burger Run" at The Reserve (1542 Light Street). Chef Sammy Davis will be making the burgers out of Creekstone Farms beef, which I have not had, but have on good authority it's amazing (that authority is Nathan Stambaugh, CF employee, meat guru and husband of Liz). The burgers will be available from 9 until midnight, unless they run out first. So get there. (Burgers are $16.)
- On Sunday the 27th, Moveable Feast will be hosting their second annual chili cookoff, benefiting the Ride for the Feast. The cookoff, which starts at 6 PM, is at the Moveable Feast Kitchens at 901 Milton Avenue. Ride for the Feast, which takes place in May, is a two-day bike race that raises funds for Moveable Feast. (Tickets are $15.)
It's a lot going on on a short time, I know - but really, don't you want to get out of the house? Especially after yesterday?
