The confectioners at MB Sweets and Treats spruce up parties, weddings, or everyday meals with homemade truffles, cookies, tiered cakes, and cupcakes. Dozens of flavors of cupcakes treat tongues to delicacies such as Madagascar-bourbon-vanilla cake and strawberry-jelly-filled cupcakes with peanut-butter frosting. The bakers can customize larger cakes with personal greetings for birthdays or productivity spreadsheets for annual performance reviews.
Cake craftswoman Cynthia adds a sweet, artful touch to weddings, birthday parties, and events with custom cakes pulled fresh from her oven and wildly creative imagination. She sifts, mixes, and ices one-of-a-kind confectionery marvels—in chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet—to each client’s specifications. No two creations look the same, and each custom goody pushes her ingenuity as she achieves such unlikely designs as a Chucky doll, Nikon camera, or motorcycle. Traditional tiered cakes further demonstrate Cynthia’s artistry and attention to detail with precisely crafted flowers, lace, and filigree fit for the Queen of England’s midnight snack.
The menu at Arlon's is even more accommodating than the carryout policy. Spanning classic dishes of American, Italian, and Indian cuisine, everything is available for preparation for gatherings large and small. Submarine sandwiches and stromboli are served among other popular hand-held eats, while entrees include house-made crab cakes and tandoori-style chicken and fish curries. Between all these eclectic dishes, though, the chefs are hard at work crafting their signature dish: thin-crust pizzas made with fresh dough and and a trusty sauce recipe. House specialties include the buffalo chicken pizza drizzled in spicy sauce and bleu cheese, and the seafood pizza, which features shimp and crabmeat seasoned with cocktail sauce and Old Bay.
Even if you do make good on your New Year’s resolution to travel back in time and avert World War II, you’ll still need something to do there when you get bored. Today’s Groupon will teach you to swing splendid danceful swings with three Monday-night swing-dancing classes at Charm City Swing for $10 (a $30 value). A syncopated step and triple-step at Charm City is the best reason to go out on a Monday night, according to Baltimore Magazine. No partner is necessary, so you can leave that clumsy dance-golem you created at home.

Fusing good eats and colorful blown glass, The Glass Grill’s creative setting offers a menu of American bar fare next door to a fully equipped hot-glass studio. Before shifting through a spread of salads, sandwiches, and soup, dig into an appetizer of crab dip served one of four ways—brimming from a bread bowl, smothered over a pretzel, blanketing a plate of fries, or stuffed into a trio of potato skins disguised as Maine lobster ($10). For a taste-bud-toasting entree, the 5 Alarm Inferno buries an 8-ounce, Angus-beef burger beneath cherry peppers, jalapenos, pepperjack cheese, and buffalo sauce ($7+). The Chicken Chesapeake crowns two grilled chicken breasts with crab dip, imperial sauce, and cheddar cheese guarded by a moat of mashed potatoes patrolled by a battalion of mixed vegetables ($15).
