Thursday is Julia Child's 101st birthday, and the weather is cooperating. Who wants to eat, much less prepare, Child's beloved boeuf bourguignonne in 90-degree temperatures?
Williams-Sonoma stores are celebrating Child's birthday with all-day tastings of boeuf bourguignonne and birthday cake. There are Williams-Sonoma stores in Columbia, Annapolis, Towson and at the Village of Cross Keys.
Baltimore County Restaurant Week continues through Aug. 25.
Gertrude's Lobsterama continues on Thursday nights in August. The restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art is offering a complete $24.95 New England meal and a $29.95 Maryland meal. Reservations are recommended.
Koco's on Harford Road is on vacation through next Monday, so you'll have to wait until next Thursday for the $20.99 crab cake special. Sascha's 527 is on vacation, too; the downtown restaurant reopens on Monday.
