Baltimore Book Festival: Where to Grab Drinks

The Baltimore Book Festival is a Mt. Vernon tradition, and the 2012 event takes place Friday–Sunday, September 28–30. The fest features hundreds of appearances by local, celebrity and nationally known authors, book signings, more than 100 exhibitors and booksellers, nonstop readings on multiple stages, cooking demos by top chefs, live music and, of course, a delicious variety of food, beer and wine.
