Summer Social West Shore Park

Waterfront Partnership’s First Summer Social of 2013 is tonight from 5pm to 8pm! Head to West Shore Park for an evening of live music by Sons of Pirates, food trucks, drinks and a kids play area! Don’t let a little rain in the forecast scare you — a large portion of West Shore Park has been tented just in case. Of course, we’re hoping the weather holds out!

What food can you score? Gypsy Queen, Chicken N’ Waffles, Chowhound, Woody’s Taco Bar, Busia’s Kitchen, Kommie Pig, Eat STIX (out of D.C.), Flavor Cupcakery, and That Cheesecake Truck (also out of D.C.). Wash down your chicken and cupcake with a $3 beer, $4 wine or $6 mixed drink. You can still nab a two-drink-ticket-plus-summer-social-koozie-special for $8 but have to do it in advance.

Kids will flip (literally) for the Waterfront Kids Play Area where Coppermine will be setting up some sports activities and Wondersitter will be onsite with lots of fun toys from aMuse.

You might even win big! Harbor East will be raffling off a Jacoby Jones autographed football, Coppermine will be raffling off a birthday party, and Wondersitter will be raffling off a 4-hour babysitting package!

Although Waterfront Partnership recommends walking, bicycling, or taking the Charm City Circulator which stops right at West Shore Park, there are also some great parking options!

  • Parking Lot at Bank and Central (located a block down from Heavy Seas Ale House) in SE Baltimore:  $3 if you enter after 4PM – it is a 15 minute walk to West Shore Park or you can jump on the CCC
  • The Gallery Garage: flat fee after 4PM on Fridays –the garage is located at 200 East Pratt Street with an entrances on Calvert and South Streets (6 minute walk)
  • Harbor East Whole Foods garage, Maryland/ Landmark garage and Legg Mason garage – $9 flat rate 5PM to 3AM (15 minute walk)
  • Key Highway – $2/ hour at the Pay to Park Stations – some areas are 2 hour maximum and others are 4 hour maximum (5 minute walk)

Looks like a super fun evening!
