Your weekend dining PLUS with the sleeping pet of the week

ollieSo...what's up this weekend?

Spring comes on Sunday, at 7:21 EDT. I'm ready, are you? I'll be dancing, as always, around the Battle Monument.

How will you be welcoming the spring?

Here's the Baltimore Sun's round-up of things to do this weekend.

Foodwise, there's:

Talbot County Restaurant Week begins on Sunday.

The Foodie Experience at the Hippodrome Alton Brown. I'll be covering it. And I'll be tweeting live. (Follow @gorelickingood)

Maki Madness, a competitive eating event at RA Sushi. Take a look at the photo gallery of last year's event.

The Baltimore Greek Week kickoff at Ikaros on Sunday. I'm going to try to have a longer post with more details a little bit later today. There are a bunch of attractive dining deals as part of this first annual celebration. You can find the official website at the link above.

Here’s Ollie, our 5-month-old kitten. Exhausted after a full morning of tin-foil soccer, knocking over vases, and eviscerating catnip mouse toys. (He’s actually available for adoption, if you know anyone….)

We were supposed to go out for my birthday and then the furnace decided to die. So we're staying in and my wife (who is an amazing cook) has promised to cook me anything I want. I'm leaning toward gnocchi w/ garlic cream sauce and grilled asparagus.
