6-9 p.m., Baltimore World Trade Center, 401 E. Pratt St., livebaltimore.ticketspice.com/baltimores-birthday-bash, $65.
Our beloved city is turning 278, but we’d swear it doesn’t look a day over 270. Take a ride up to the top of the World Trade Center to ring in another year of existence at this swanky celebration. Taste hors d’Oeuvres and drinks from Dooby’s, Cava Mezze, and others, and plan to feast on some birthday sweets. Tickets benefit Live Baltimore.
