THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."

At David's Grill & Bar, hand-cut rye, rosemary-ciabatta sub slices, and folded tortillas ensconce cheeses, deli and grill-fresh meats, and colorful veggies. The chefs paint sandwiches and wraps with innovative elixirs such as garlic-basil aioli, spicy thai-peanut sauce, and orange-chipotle mayo, yet still take the time to build classics such as the reuben and the chicken-caesar wrap. Their breakfast options include croissants, omelets, muffins, pastries, and more. For catered events, the crew members at David's prepare lunch trays, salad bowls, and entrees, packing them up and delivering them to your office or spreading them out at their own facility, which offers views of Lake Erie and the Canadians who occasionally crawl out of it.

Nearly a century ago, the Hippodrome opened as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome closed down in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hearken back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.
