Your weekend dining PLUS featuring the sleeping pet of the day

sophie & stellaLet's see.

West Side Story is at the Hippodrome. Folks are always looking for good dining tips around the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. Often I've seen people wandering the neighborhood, singing, "There's a place to eat, somewhere a place to eat."

The Charm City Roller Girls are back in action tonight down in Canton.

On Saturday, the Maryland Wineries Association and the Maryland Jockey Club are partnering up to present Decanter: A Day of Maryland Wine & Racing on the infield Pimlico Race Course.

People headed down to Saturday's Privateer Day in Fells Point will be looking for someplace to eat in Fells Point. Of course, they can always hang out in the Thames Street Park beer garden and join the Pyrate Invasion Pub Crawl right after.

Some of those events, like tomorrow's JHU Spring Fair and the opening of Six Flags in Bowie have built-in eating options.

What are you doing this weekend? Who's planning a restaurant outing?

The sleeping pets of the week are litter-mates Stella and Sophie, who live with Ruth Kloetzli. whose family's old restaurant, Werner's, is closing today.





As always, Sam Sessa previews the weekend on video.

ok, those puppies are absolutely adorable. awwwwww.......

We're heading to Chincoteague, VA, with my parents. Where to eat? Any ideas?

Tonight we have reservations at Blue Hill. Sunday night at B&O, though I confess I was mostly influenced by the 1000 open table points for that one.

I recommend Firestone's Culinary Tavern if looking for a place to eat in Frederick near the Frances-Merrick Performing Arts Center. Try the deviled egg app.

Had a "Belgian Waffle on a Stick" at the Hopkins Fair. Covered in chocolate, sprinkled with nuts.

Definitely the best Belgian Waffle on a Stick that I've ever had!

Zevonista! I was there, trying the Greek chicken Caesar salad on pita--very non-traditional, but completely edible.

I'll be in Salisbury this weekend for Pork in the Park, a BBQ Festival!

We went to Firestone's in Frederick for brunch about a month ago. It was fantastic! The pizza alone was worth the drive. Beautiful place, great food.
