Two openings: Gino's Burgers & Chicken and the Baltimore Food Co-op

Update: Gino's opening is on Wednesday, Aug. 17 (not Thursday, Aug. 18)

Will you show up at the grand opening of the Baltimore Food Co-op? Actually , the co-op has been operating since July 28, but its el grando openingo will be on Thursday, Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will preside at a 12:30 p.m. ribbon cutting. This is the co-op that promised it wasn't going to be that 70s-era crunchy, morose, sourpuss, fraught-by-internecine conflict kind of co-op. 

Or will you go to Gino's. The long-awaited opening in Towson of  Gino's Burgers & Chicken, the area's first store in the rebooted hamburger franchise, is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 17, at 11 a.m.
