Weekend Plans, What to Do Feb. 6-9


From handmade happy hours to half-price Friday nights, lots of fun is on the calendar. Here is Baltimore Style’s lineup of great weekend plans around the area.


Art of Comedy Open Mic

Budding comedians can try out five minutes of their material on Wednesdays in what is billed as the city’s “hottest open mic night.” We can’t vouch for that, but we will bet on the laughs and a welcoming crowd. Motor House, 8-11 p.m. Motorhousebaltimore.com


Handmade Happy Hour

Every Thursday, drop by The Pottery Stop after 5 p.m. and get 15% off your ceramic project. BYOB so you can sip while you paint your custom vase. The Pottery Stop, 5-10 p.m. Price varies per project. thepotterystop.com

Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week

Alma Cocina Latina is taking this opportunity to get creative with their menu to show their patrons that vegan food is much more than just “rabbit food.” If you are already in love with their regular menu, you will want to give their special vegan week menu a try. Here you can experience the benefits, both taste- and health-wise, of a vegetable-based diet through their exotic dishes like the Vegan Forrest or Squash Tartare by Executive Chef Karem Barragan.  2400 Boston Street, Suite 108.
