Fun food and booze activities in October

October got off to a hectic start, so much so, I didn't have time to write up the monthly blog about events going on in the local booze and food world. I missed a couple of fun ones like the Baltimore Taco festival and Baltimore Craft Beer festival, so my apologies for slacking!

Here's what we got and if you know of another event to add please let us know! You can email me at or Siobhan at
