The City Paper (www.citypaper.com), a free weekly distributed in shops and yellow street-corner boxes, has the most comprehensive and complete calendar of Baltimore events; it's published every Wednesday. Other event listings appear in the Thursday edition of the Baltimore Sun (www.baltimoresun.com), the monthly Baltimore magazine (www.baltimoremagazine.net), and the daily online b magazine (www.bthesite.com).

Fells Point, just east of the Inner Harbor; Federal Hill, due south; and Canton, due east, have hosts of bars, restaurants, and clubs that draw a rowdy, largely collegiate crowd. If you're seeking quieter surroundings, head for the upscale comforts of downtown or Mount Vernon clubs and watering holes.
