Kick off 2024 with some fun! There are lots of cool events happening in Charm City this January. Events are a great way to get out, whether you want to meet new people, try new things, or just prioritize fun in the new year.
Want to set your intentions for a healthier, happier new year? Head to Simply Jeanette on January 14th at 2pm for a vision board workshop.

Remember making tie-dye t-shirts as a kid? Make the grown-up version at Wico Street Beer Co’s tie-dye night on January 19th! Your ticket includes a beer so you can tie dye-and-sip. If you have green thumbs (not counting dye stains), Wico is also hosting a terrarium-building event in collaboration with B. Willow on the 26th.
Feel the Rhythm
