School is back in session, which means WLOY is back at The Soundstage. Come join us there this weekend to see the alternative hip-hop artist Watsky.

Priced at only $20 these tickets are cheap and might even save you enough money to buy a tour tee after you fall in love with his music. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm, so make sure you get there and claim a great spot. Get your tickets here for a discounted price.

Where: Baltimore Humane Society
When: Saturday, September 17th
Let’s be real: everyone loves dogs. If you don’t you’re either lying or allergic to them. Well, if you are allergic, then this event might not be for you since The Baltimore Humane Society will be overflowing with dogs on Saturday the 17th from 10am-4om. For everyone else though, tickets will be $15 at the door, which includes a free ticket to Magooby’s Joke House. This event has something for everyone (and every animal) with games, contests, crafts, and food. Enter your dog into a best costume contest, take him bowling, train him, and watch some cool demos together. OR, if you’re like me, check out some great vendors, raise some money for the Humane Society, pet every single dog, and try your hardest not to adopt all the animals. No matter what you plan is, you should definitely show up and support your local puppies.

What: 60 cent Cannoli
Where: Vaccaro’s Italian Pastry Shop
When: May 12 9am to 10pm
I don’t think this Food Friday needs too much advertising, if “60 cent Cannoli’s” doesn’t grab you then I don’t know what will. I can’t help you. No one can help you.
These amazing, fabulous, decadent, carefully made cannoli’s are now going to be available every 2nd Thursday for the rest of the year! Buttt you can’t go into this lovely pastry shop and clean them out! Only two per person, which I think is very fair, I would be fine with half a cannoli for 60 cents, plus… incase you didn’t know… these bad boys are large.
So head on down! Get yo cannoli’s!!!

Baltimore gets a lot of hype for developing some of the best lacrosse talent in the nation, but what is underappreciated is the amount of talent that Baltimore has generated on the hardwood. From NBA scoring champion, to FIBA World Champion, to NCAA Champion, Baltimore has produced a number of guys who have gone on to have success at the next level around the world.
Carmelo Anthony: Arguably the most famous athlete from Baltimore is New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony. Anthony is a 9 time all-star, 2 time Olympic Gold Medal winner, and he led the NBA in scoring in 2013. Anthony started his career at Towson Catholic High School before transferring to Oak Hill Academy. Anthony went on to attend Syracuse University in 2003 where he led his team to an NCAA championship in his only year at the school. Anthony was selected No. 3 overall in the 2003 NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets. Anthony spent the first 8 years of his career in Denver before getting traded to the Knicks in 2011. Anthony has done a terrific job giving back to the Baltimore community as well. He hosts an annual 3-on-3 tournament called “Melo’s H.O.O.D.” (Holding Our Own Destiny). The purpose of this event is to help fund the revitalization of the local community center for the youth. He also founded “The Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center”, which he donated $1.5 million to the Living Classrooms Foundation. (more…)

What: Penguin Coast
Where: Maryland Zoo
I am very excited to tell you about Penguin Coast at the Maryland Zoo and I think I might procrastinate on everything and go visit penguins. They are cute, they are friendly, and they look funny when they walk. I love them.
So waddle on down to the Maryland Zoo to see your favorite lil’ guys in the new exhibit. Penguin Coast features African penguins, this habitat is designed to replicate an African penguin’s environment on the South African Coast. Luckily for us humans, we will be able to get closer than ever and truly observe penguins with the new design. This is a great addition for both the penguins and their fans!
Go here to find out all the info about our lil’ penguins!
