City Paper is Baltimore’s weekly alternative newspaper and a great source for events, pop-up parties, and art exhibitions.
Independent digital resource What Weekly covers Baltimore’s emerging neighborhoods, cultures, and countercultures. It was rated the city’s best new magazine by old stalwart Baltimore Magazine in 2011.
Daily events blog the Baltimore Chop covers live music, downtown development projects, social issues, and all things baseball.
The unimaginatively named Adventures in Baltimore Restaurants is one of the city’s only privately run food blogs, and reviews new openings in and around downtown Baltimore.
