Benefit Baltimore Market
You know how now we don’t just have Black Friday, but also Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday and probably others too? Well the third day of splurging is Giving Tuesday, when we’re encouraged to donate to causes more worthy than Wal-Mart or Best Buy. But giving, though a pleasure in itself, sometimes comes with perks. Head to Peabody Heights Brewery to stock up on handcrafted gifts—soy candles, stationery, leather goods, knitwear, silkscreen posters, jewelry, and more—and enjoy grub from food trucks and beer from the resident microbrewers all while supporting local non-profits. Each vendor will give 20 percent of their sales to one of five non-profits, choosing from Bikemore, Blue Water Baltimore, Open Works, Village Learning Place, and Youth Empowered Society. Technically, this also fulfills the mission of Small Business Saturday too. 5-9 p.m., Peabody Heights Brewery, 401 E. 30th St., (410) 467-7837, benefitbaltimore.com, free admission.
