Celebrate Fall in Downtown Towson


October is a great time to be a resident of Hampton Plaza Apartments. The air is crisp, the apples are fresh and there’s plenty to (safely) do in downtown Towson.

Here’s a look at what’s happening in the neighborhood this month:

Dining Out in Towson

Dining out continues to look a little different than normal, with more masks, more outdoor seating, and fewer patrons inside restaurants. But the Towson food scene is as terrific as ever, with fun events and great opportunities to get out of the kitchen.

Towson Tavern

At Towson Tavern, the menu is changing with the season; it’s now showcasing the best fall produce and other harvest season goodies, in dishes like an apple craisin crumb with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of salted caramel.


Cunningham’s Café

Cunningham’s Café is also celebrating the season with specials, like a cinnamon maple brioche. 


Café Troia

Café Troia is breaking out the heaters to get its al fresco space ready for cooler weather. Even as the temperature drops, dining on the restaurant’s pretty, covered deck will remain comfortable. 


So Good Barbeque

The So Good Barbeque truck will pop-up behind The Point on Monday, Oct. 5. You can sit on the patio at The Point and enjoy half-priced select whiskeys and bourbons, among other specials, and grab food from the truck. 


Razorback’s Raw Bar & Grill

Unfortunately, this past month has brought some sad news on the restaurant front: Razorback’s Raw Bar & Grill has closed permanently. 



M&T Stadium might not be open for fans this season, but the Ravens are still making things happen on the field. In Towson, local bars and restaurants have terrific game day specials and tons of TVs for a great viewing experience.


Nacho Mama’s

Nacho Mama’s has outdoor seating with big screens plus tons of specials, including deals on their fantastic margaritas. 


The Point

When you reserve a table at The Point, $50 gets you the table, a bucket of Bud Light, a platter of wings, fries and dips. 


C&R Pub

At C&R Pub, gameday specials include $5, $8 and $10 plates, 99-cent wings and drink specials including $10 Miller Lite pitchers.



CVP’s deals include $9.99 buckets of Corona products and $19.99 party tubs. 



Even if you’re watching the game at home, you can do it in tasty style with purple bagels from THB. The Ravens-inspired bagels are available each weekend, starting on Fridays. 


The Point

Live Music: The Point in Towson will host the Jules Riser Band on Oct. 4 and Bread & Cheese on Oct. 23 – get there early for both! 


Barley’s Backyard Uptown

At Barley’s Backyard Uptown, Chris Diller will play from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Oct. 2 and 16 – get there for happy hour, which starts at 3 p.m. and settle in for dinner and tunes.

Towson art exhibit

Art at the Mall

From now through Oct. 20, check out the work of Dan Keplinger in storefront displays on levels two and four of Towson Town Center. The mall and Towson University are partnering on this exhibit showcasing the work of Keplinger, the Towson MFA grad who rose to national fame as the central character in the short film “King Gimp,” which won an Oscar.

The exhibit has been created in recognition of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Farmers’ Market Is Still in the Swing of Thing

Every Thursday, the Towson Farmers’ Market pops up on Allegheny Ave. from 10: 45 a.m. to 3 p.m. The market features tons of great food, beverage, craft and art vendors and continues through October and November. 


New Shop Alert

Taken, the fun pop-up shop featuring cool art, furniture and other items from local artisans, will open in Dulaney Plaza shopping center, in the back building near Towne Barre, The Rellim Collection and FORM Salon

Taken is an excellent place for holiday shopping…or shopping for yourself.
