Our new May Newsletter is here.
Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining (most of the time) and Towsonites are out and about, enjoying the springtime. This time of year, the streets outside the doors of Hampton Plaza Apartments are bustling and there’s always something to do.
Here’s a look at what’s happening in downtown Towson this spring:
Outdoor dining on Pennsylvania Ave. is back, along with warmer weather. Participating restaurants include Nacho Mama’s, C&R Pub and CVP. Weather permitting, Pennsylvania will be shut down to traffic, but open for dining, on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
On April 29, head to central Towson for Towson Gardens Day, a celebration of all things spring. The event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will include food trucks, live music and vendors including art, jewelry, produce and – of course – plants.
Now that live acts are back at The Recher, there’s always something to do in Towson. Upcoming shows include comedy from 98 Rock’s Justin Schlegel on April 24 and a show from Kurt Deemer Band on April 30.
Shop local at Towson Town Center on Saturday, May 8, during Small Business Saturday – a pop-up market featuring all sorts of local businesses.
The pop-up will take place in the Level 3 Rotunda. It’s a great way to support local makers and home-based businesses.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 9 and Towson restaurants are already making plans to help you treat your moms right.
On May 20, grab your favorite pup and head to the restaurant’s patio for Yappy Hour benefiting the Baltimore Humane Society. The event will feature drink and food specials for humans and dogs, with 15% of sales going to the Humane Society and other ways to give back.
Lovers of jazz, blues and American classics should stay abreast of happenings at Red Pepper Sichuan Bistro. The downtown Towson restaurant has plans to showcase local vocalists performing classic tunes.
Keep your eyes on Perennial, the new restaurant in the old Cunningham’s space at 1 Olympic Place. The restaurant, helmed by former Cunningham’s chef (and Food Network “Chopped” winner) Jay Rohlfing, is slated to open in May.
