The Weekend to Come. . .

It's hot, and when it is, Hawker (and Hampden) seem to enter a state of torpor.

What to do this weekend as a tonic?

There is, of course, the obligatory tasting at The Wine Source--this time it's beer! But for those looking to mix it up, let me make some suggestions:

1. Tonight, why don't you go check out Twelfth Night as presented by the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival at 8 p.m.? Sure, the performance is on the grounds of Evergreen House, which is north of Charles Village, but Baltimore Shakes calls Hampden its home (the St. Mary's Outreach Center on Roland.) Baltimore Shakes is one of three professional theatres in Baltimore, FYI. (The other two being Everyman and CENTERSTAGE.)

2. Tomorrow, hows about a flea market? At the Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church at 3300 Chestnut Avenue, there will be flea markets on the 4th Saturday of each month until November. Tomorrow, June 28th is the very first one. The market will run from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and is being organized by Joelle (the former owner of Galvanize.) There will even be a table of donated goods for sale benefitting Hampden Feral Cat Rescue. Donations are welcome, and folks can reserve their own space to sell their own wares for just $7! (A 6-foot table can be provided for just $5 more.) Call Joelle to reserve a space at 410-467-3643--there are already 35 vendors tomorrow! They've got to be selling something you need!

3. Sunday, get your ukelele on! Join Atomic Pop for it's Uke-Pop party this Sunday, June 29th from 2-5 p.m. Tippy Canoe, Victoria Vox, Uni & her Ukelele and The Go-Pills will all be playing. Go herefor more details. It's free!

Join Hawker at one of these events! Plus, why don't you check out some of the newer gems of the neighborhood? Pie shop? Goods from India? Broaden your horizons, Hampdenites!

Hey Hawker! Tried to go to get Pie tonight...raced ahead of the storm up the avenue salivating for apple pie ... only to discover lots of scaffolding and a locked door.

Don't think there will be pie this weekend, no siree bob.
