A few neat events are happening in this last week of November/very early December.
If you’re looking for an open mic, Charmington’s is hosting the Seltzer open mic on 11/29 at 7p (get there at 6:30 if you want to sign up to read), 2601 N. Howard St., 21218. We’re getting a group together for this one. If you can’t make it, it repeats every last Tuesday of the month.
This Thursday, 12/01, one of the co-founders of Atlas Obscura is coming to Baltimore on a road trip to talk about and visit the weird, cool places in the city you only know about if you live here (and add them to the AO map). This should be an awesome time for anyone who enjoys travel writing, or just getting creative inspiration from new places and people.
They’ll be in various places (such as the Walter’s Art Gallery) around Mt. Vernon and Station North from 2p-9p. If you want to meet up with Baltimore Writing Hour members, tweet or message @writinghour or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Itinerary and registration at Atlas Obscura’s site (registration is free).
Can’t leave out the Washington Monument lighting ceremony on 12/01 from 5p-8p (actual lighting it at 7p, but it will be super crowded by then) in Mt. Vernon park. It’s so pretty. All those lights! How they shine.
