Getaways: Lots of food (and some pretty pictures)

In case St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have you thoroughly wiped out through the weekend, there are still some things to do around Baltimore. Or maybe you’re just not into the green spirit anyway.

The Second Annual Foodie Experience will be at the Hippodrome Theatre Saturday, starting at 8 p.m. Food Network’s Alton Brown will headline the event, which will have post-show tastings featuring food from local restaurants and caterers. Tickets for the event range from $94 to $250.

And if you’re looking to celebrate any other ethnicity besides that Emerald Isle one, the first annual Baltimore Greek Week will kick off Sunday. Participating counties will celebrate the 190th anniversary of Greek Independence with specials from area restaurants and stores, featured Greek wines, guest speakers, artwork and dance that incorporate the culture. The kick-off event will be hosted at Ikaros Restaurant.

Also, in case you haven’t seen these exhibits yet, check out some art while you’re recovering from St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe go see them again. The Walters Art Museum has a new exhibit on reliquaries, the containers of saints’ remains. The Baltimore Museum of Art’s modern photography exhibit, Seeing Now: Photography Since 1960, has some great pieces from Cindy Sherman, Helmut Newton and Gary Winogrand.
