This weekend is going to be filled with fun, as well as cold. So bundle up and go!

Friday night, from 7 p.m.-10 p.m., the Baltimore Museum of Art hosts 60 Objects, Countless Stories. The free event highlights the first audio tour of the collection, with commentary from curators, conservators and local writers. There will be live readings from authors featured in the tour, and you can meet all those who contributed to the project, with an evening of poetry, discussions, music and a cash bar.

Saturday will prove to be quite busy, and fulfilling, for those willing to leave the house. Daedalus Books is celebrating it's third anniversary, offering a 10 percent discount to all customers. After you're done stocking your shelves, you can go see author (and president-elect) Barack Obama at 4:15 p.m. at the War Memorial Plaza. The gates open at 1 p.m., though, and space is limited, so pack your thermos of hot chocolate, slap a hat on your head and get there early.

Not enough action for you? Then go check out John Astin's tribute to Edgar Allan Poe at Westminster Hall from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. He'll have a repeat performance Sunday at 4:30 p.m., and again Feb. 1.
