With tonight’s First Friday events in Old Town Ellicott City, the summer fests and markets and events begin in earnest. It doesn’t get more interesting than Yappy Hour at the Wine Bin, or movies on Saturday night, or just strolling Main Street and eating at the restaurants.
On the first Friday of every month, the shops stay open late, until 9 PM or later. Check out the events page to see the latest.
As for the movie schedule, the refrigerator magnet always lets you know what will be playing on the outside wall of the Wine Bin.
Tomorrow if the weather gods cooperate, they will be showing Grease. Tonight is Yappy Hour, again check the weather notices on their web site.
Our other favorite activity on Friday nights, when the weather isn’t as awful as it has been this year. Wine and goodies on the upstairs patio at Pure Wine Cafe.
I’m inclined to buy those lovely rockfish tacos. Maybe with a side of truffle fries. A nice light white wine.
I also have been known to stock up on summer wines at the Wine Bin, like this goody.
A good boxed wine from Spain. Trust me on this one. You want it in your fridge.
My other favorite activity in Old Town. The Saturday morning farmer’s market.
People who are lucky enough to live there. They get the best of small town and “city” living. In a walkable community.
If we could only get this rain to go away.
