Here's a guide to some of the hot things happening around town this weekend. Got something to share? Whether it's a lecture, yard sale, movie screening or barbecue, it's free to post on our events calendar.
The Baltimore Orioles will be playing. Somewhere. Sometime this weekend. We're writing this on Wednesday, with the American League East berth still mathematically up for grabs. If it turns out the Orioles won and the Yankees lost Wednesday, they will play Thursday in a tiebreaker game at Camden Yards. The winner wins the AL East, while the loser hosts either Texas or Oakland in the one-game wildcard round on Friday. As long as the Orioles won out, they're guaranteed to host that wildcard game. The American League Division Series starts Saturday. (Update: The Orioles will play the wildcard game at Texas Friday, then, should they win, open the division series at home.)
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel hosts their Fall Festival from Friday through Sunday.
Get an early Christmas gift or something special for yourself at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival in Timonium.
