Join the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center for a free talk by health coach Audrey Guzik on the emerging research about the realtionship of weight and health.
Go wild for a great cause! Calling all artists and wildlife enthusiasts to the 7th Annual Community Foundation of Southern Maryland Potomac River Waterfowl Show at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds in Leonardtown, MD. Show attendees include award-winning artists who will showcase their world-class wildlife art both at a dinner reception and day-time fair.
The Baltimore City Police and Fire Departments, in collaboration with Boston Street Running, are holding the first annual Memorial Day 5K run. The run will start and finish at Boston Street Running. The course will lead you through the Canton Port District with scenic views of Ft. McHenry, the Baltimore skyline, and the Inner Harbor. Participants are eligible to win running shoes, accessories, and amenities.
Take your Super Bowl-winning hangover down the shore with this parade featuring players, cheerleaders, mascots, floats and bands. Feel free to sweat through your purple camo.
Want to enjoy nature, but terrified of leaving the confines of the Greatest City in America? Join the folks at Druid Hill Park for a six-mile guided tour of the park and learn about the history of what is one the oldest urban parks in the U.S.
Wait, you didn't know that Maryland's state sport involved horses, lances and the like? Well get that Game of Thrones/medieval times image out of your head. We're talking about the jousting that involves snagging tiny rings with a six-foot pole while running full speed on a horse, which somehow seems even more difficult.
We don't have gladiators anymore, which is probably a good thing. Blood stains are a pain to clean. But watching cars smash each other beyond all recognition is the next best thing, right? And you can even drive in it, presumably without the threat of a sword going through your chest. We're not sure what that would do to your insurance premiums, though.
The monster trucks are outoors for jumping over and/or smashing into stuff.
Hop on your bike and head over to the Mount Clare Stable in Carroll Park for this annual benefit. After the workout, you can relax with a barbeque and live jazz. Proceeds go to Baltimore parks.
Bike rides for all experience and stamina levels on this day of riding through Carroll, Patterson, Herring Run and Druid Hill parks. So enjoy a leisurely 12-mile ride, or test your speed and endurance with a more intense ride, like the 64-mile "metric century." And once you're done, there's a barbecue! All proceeds go to the city's parks, environmental and cycling groups, so don some spandex and your two-wheeled steed and get riding.
Although this is referred to as a great "first-time" triathlon, with a 0.62 mile swim, 16 mile bike ride and 3.4 mile run, you should probably still be in pretty good shape to try your hand at this. Billed as a way to honor service members, the event will for the first time have a competition class comprised solely of emergency first responders, the winner of which will be awarded with a $500 donation to a charity of their choice.
So you fancy yourself a swimmer, eh. If you think you're up to it, freestyle, breast stroke or doggy paddle your way along this one-mile race in the ocean. Make sure you register for this one--there are T-shirts to be had.
This summer, M&T Bank Stadium is hosting the other football. You know, the one that actually involves feet most of the time. And unless the United States team totally shits the bed, odds are you'll see such stars as Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard have a chance to kick the ball around here in Charm City.
Although hunting season isn't typically until the Fall, it's probably best to get the part where you learn how not to accidentally maim your brother/father/un-related hunting partner with a firearm out of the way now. Get the basics on firearms handling safety, shooting fundamentals, wildlife management and tree stand safety.
It's time for preseason football again, which means getting your first glimpse at Super Bowl winners Joe Flacco and Ray Rice--what? They're only on the field for like five minutes? Dammit. Well use this opportunity to hone your Ravens-related obscenities and chants in preparation for the real games.
Quite a weekend for the cycling and/or Frederick enthusiast. This year's tour includes rides for all skill levels, from an 8-mile family ride to the "leisurely" 24-mile "ramble" and the ole' "metric century" for grizzled veterans. Ride up and down mountains, to Gettysburg and back, or just stick around town for the ghost tour Friday night.
Really, really, really fast cars through what is usually a parking lot of traffic in downtown Baltimore. What more do you need?
The Washington Capitals take on the Boston Bruins in preseason action.
Don't scoff: sailing can teach you some meaningful life skills. Like which side of the boat is starboard, and various knots and such. Okay, so they're not that meaningful. But it's still good for some maritime fun.
Whoa, look how far you threw that frisbee dude! Shit yeah. Oh. Well fuck. That dog just took your disc bro. Game over, man.
Those Orioles sure gave us a hell of a ride last year, right? And so far this year, things have been going pretty well too, fresh off a west coast trip that yielded seven wins out of 11 games. Obviously you should be trying your damnedest to get to every game at what might be the best ballpark in all the land, but we guess you can be forgiven for merely hitting up the team's various promotional nights. You've got to relish that Oriole Magic, guys.
This group of bikers out of Pennsylvania are nuts. On June 2, as part of the Class "A" Professional Hill Climb, motorcycles will race up a 300-foot dirt "hill" that looks more like a wall than an incline. But they're peppering the summer with events for the average rider, from a swap meet for parts June 14-16 to a Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Meet and Bike Show Aug. 16-18. Indulge your inner Hunter S. Thompson.
Work making you too up tight? Get out of your suit and into some yoga pants or whatever other comfortable garb you enjoy, and hop downtown for some stretching and chakras and the like.
Corvettes are pretty cool cars, huh. If you have one, feel free to socialize with like-minded individuals, at least when it comes to cars. If you currently drive a different [read: inferior] vehicle, come by to check out the cool cars and be convinced of your need for what is obviously pinnacle of automobiles.
Having a shark-fishing tournament in a beach resort town seems ill-advised. Why tempt fate? But we guess its a proactive way to avoid giant murderous sea beasts from terrorizing the population, so we'll allow it. If you figure yourself a fisherman in the vein of Robert Shaw, fire up the boat and see if you can land the biggest catch. Or if you just like seeing the grizzled sea captains, be there for the weigh-ins.
The third annual skateboarding and BMX tour promises to be totally rad, brah. Come by to watch the competition, or if the adrenaline is too much for you, just enjoy some music on the beach.
So afternoon thunderstorms have besieged our local vacation hotspot. You've been holed up with your entire family for what seems like nigh forever, and you're THAT close to bludgeoning your children with the Monopoly board. Head over to the beach and use the various competitions, from tug-of-war to sand castle contests, to blow off some steam and remind yourself that your children aren't so bad after all.
This tournament has something that tastes better than your tuna salad sandwich: victory. That is, of course, if you can reel in the biggest future maki roll the Ocean City coast has to offer. Or if you just want to look the poor critter in the eye before heading to the fish monger, stop by for the weigh-ins.
Forget Miami and that wretched carcass of a baseball team. See why OC is called the "White Marlin Capital of the World" with this contest to see who can farm the fattest fish.
