1. Canton Dockside
If you’re feeling a bit crabby, swing on over to Baltimore for crabs galore. This was my very first experience with Baltimore crabs and they were excellent. Voted one of the best Crab Houses in Baltimore, Canton Dockside has a huge seafood menu and gorgeous views of the Baltimore harbor. I really can’t think of anything better than that on a Saturday afternoon. Just don’t forget your bib.
*Tip: But really, don’t dress nicely, wear jewelry, or expect to go to a gala after eating crabs. You will be a mess, but you will enjoy it.
2. Forbidden Planet Productions: Next to Normal
The modern broadway classic, Next to Normal, is coming to the stage in DC this weekend at George Washington University! Next to Normal follows a family of four as they battle with mental illness and the struggles of a suburban family falling apart at the seams. The music is so great and I know for a fact that the cast of FPP’s production can sing it just as well, if not better than the original cast. This is something you need to see for yourself, so head on over to the Mount Vernon campus tonight or tomorrow night and experience something extraordinary.
*Tip: Get there at least an hour early to purchase tickets. The show is most likely going to sell out both nights and you really shouldn’t miss this because you couldn’t get a ticket.
3. Movie of the Week: La Dolce Vita
I am studying abroad in Italy in the fall and in an attempt to begin preparing myself for the culture shock I will experience in four months, I watched the Italian classic, La Dolce Vita, starring film icons Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg. Simply, it will make you wish you were a black and white Italian film star. Snuggle up in bed during the storm tonight and watch this good ‘ol Hollywood classic.
