Event: Brew & Bourbon Classic

Music: Chicago
Though the band is perhaps best known for the hit “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?,” there’s no doubt that Chicago is dearly cherished in the American cultural consciousness. The decades-old band has toured every year since its inception and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year — and now, they’re coming back to Baltimore.
See them Nov. 18 at the Lyric. Tickets: $36-$204. 


Music: Tetzlaff Quartet
Get lost in the sounds of strings with The Teztlaff Quartet when they visit Baltimore as part of Johns Hopkins’ Shriver Hall Concert Series.

The chamber ensemble will perform a number of Viennese works, including Schubert’s final quartet, on this stop of their 2017/2018 world tour.
Nov. 19, 5:30 p.m. at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. Tickets: $42 (students: $10). 

Food: Malulee’s Kitchen
Asian cultures have brought richness and new experiences of all kinds to America. Of particular note, many will agree, is Asian cuisine. In honor of celebrated Thai chef Malulee Pinsuvana, a woman who has shared a great deal of the Thai tradition of cooking with the world, the Walters presents Malulee’s Kitchen: a day-long exploration of Asian tradition with a focus on food. The day will kick off with a zine fair, continue on to Asian cooking demonstrations and end with a screening of “Off the Menu: Asian America,” followed by a discussion panel. You might just learn a trick or two to bring back to your own kitchen!
Nov. 19 at The Walters Art Museum. Free.
