Gosh it's hot. If you want an indoor food-related activity, you can start planning for Baltimore Restaurant Week, which is less than two weeks away. The fun begins on July 26.
The Prime Rib reopens on Monday after a two-week closing for some long-planned renovations to its kitchen and some cosmetic changes to its "outside dining room." You can read about the improvements here.
It's Meet Your Bartenders Week at Wine Market Bistro. From Tuesday through Friday, the restaurants' bartenders will be showing off mixology skills and wine knowledge. Bitters-infused cocktails are featured on Tuesday, Wine Market classics on Wednesday and shandies on Thursday. Friday's agenda is wine-and-food pairings, with $9 small plates.
Fiesta at Pazo is a series of casual dining evenings featuring a tapas reception and wine tasting, followed by a seated main course and dessert. The next one is Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Also on Thursday, Hersh's Pizza & Drinks and Flying Dog Brewery team up for a beer-and-seafood party on Hersh's patio. The event will include four seafood courses and dessert, each paired with a different beer from Flying Dog. One dish will even be paired with a Flying Dog beer-based cocktail, created by the Jamaal Green. Some highlights from the menu include shrimp and Calabrian chile sausage, kataifi-fried haddock with heirloom tomato syrup and salt cod fritters. That's from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $50.
The Gathering, Baltimore's roving food-truck get-together, returns to Du Burns Arena (aka Coppermine Field House) in Canton. That's Friday night from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Fleming's Prime Steak House & Wine Bar has brought back its Summer Sundays prime rib dinner. The deal includes a salad, dessert and a choice of one side with the prime rib, which is served with a trio of sauces.
