Hawaiian time at Hopkins
Break out the hula skirts and poi. The theme for the Johns Hopkins Spring Fair this year is Luau '95. The event, now in its 24th year, is the university's way of saying "thanks" to neighboring communities. All of Baltimore is invited, however, so get in on the hospitality. The fair runs April 28-30 and will feature arts and crafts, music, food, kids' activities, an antique car show and carnival rides. What better way to celebrate spring than to load up on fried dough and then ride the Tilt-a-Whirl? A pre-fair concert, featuring the Samples, will take place on April 27 at the Newton White Athletic Center. Admission to the fair is free.
Luau '95, Johns Hopkins University, Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. noon to 7:30 p.m. April 28; 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. April 29; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 30. Admission is free. The Samples perform 8 p.m. April 27. Tickets for the concert are $17, $12 for students. Student tickets may be purchased only at Johns Hopkins University's Levering Hall.

You've got a taste for the finer things in life, are looking to invest in some quality antiques, but are a little short in the cash-flow department? Here's an event for you -- the Baltimore Museum Antiques Show, at the Baltimore Museum of Art. This year's collection will feature a number of "smalls" and affordable antiques, say the show's coordinators -- items aimed at the young or beginning collector. "Smalls" are pieces that the buyer can carry out of the show. As such, they tend to be less expensive than large items. Right now, I'm looking to add a little class to the homestead so I may pick up a few things myself. Won't my friends be impressed?
The nearly 40 dealers at the 13th annual show will be offering traditional American and English antiques as well as Americana, folk art, Asian ceramics and textiles. The show and sale runs May 5-7 at the BMA. Throughout the weekend, there will be several additional events, including a gala preview, a guided tour and dinner reception for young collectors, and a family day.
Baltimore Museum Antiques Show, Baltimore Museum of Art, Art Museum Drive. 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 5; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 6; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 7. Admission to the show is $8 at the door or $6 in advance. Tickets to the gala preview, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. May 4, are $85. Tickets to the young collector's evening, 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. May 5, are $50.
