Getaways: Memorial Day weekend

In light of all the news about plans to change up the Inner Harbor that came out Wednesday, there are definitely some great things going on this holiday weekend worth checking out.

My colleague Melody wrote Tuesday about concerts that are kicking off this weekend at Harborplace. The free, 44-event summer concert series will be rocking through the summer. Saturday shows start at 8 p.m., Sunday shows at 6 p.m.

The NCAA 2011 Men’s Lacrosse Championships will be Friday through Monday. Fans can purchase tickets to the games at M&T Bank Stadium ranging from $75 to $350. Friday kicks off with a USILA North/South Game at Goucher College.

Saturday will be a great day for Brew at the Zoo (complete with wine too) at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. The event, also held on Sunday, goes from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets range from $40 for members under 21/designated drivers to $75 for non-members over 21. Wild Famous Dave’s BBQ will also be on hand for 200 guests to enjoy in a private tent for relaxing in the shade.

On Monday, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fort McHenry will observe Memorial Day with wreath-layings, a flag demonstration involving veterans at noon, services at Mount Auburn, Baltimore’s oldest African-American cemetery and observance of the National Moment of Silence (3 p.m. in the Star Fort.)
