B’More Social: Sept. 13-16

We don’t know yet what the weekend weather will bring as Hurricane Florence heads toward the East Coast. As of Thursday morning, the National Hurricane Center was showing a storm route that would mostly spare the mid-Atlantic. But some groups have already canceled or rescheduled events, like the Baltimore Humane Society’s much-loved Dogfest, which now will be held on  Saturday, Oct. 6 (See dogfest.org for more info).

Before you head out for any of the following activities, check event websites or social media.
