NDMV tutors provide students with assistance on their schoolwork and develop an academic plan for each of them, following up regularly on their report cards and other signposts of academic progress. Volunteers also help facilitate involvement in extracurricular activities by providing transportation to sporting events and encouraging enrollment in school clubs. Furthermore, NDMV strives to engage parents and friends in students' academic life, encouraging them to take an active interest in the young people's progress. Through the program's efforts, students who received assistance from NDMV reported improved attitudes toward school and schoolwork, and 62% of students who received aid for one year showed an improvement in school attendance when compared to the previous year.
The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric has a deep history that stretches back to the 1890s, when frequent polkas filled the air on summer evenings and the walls were decked out in beer-garden fashion. Throughout the following century, acts ranging from demonstrations of electric cooking to performances by Ella Fitzgerald and Robin Williams have inspired awe and given cause for recent restoration.
The Trawler Fest Boat Show is an in-water showcase of more than 60 cruising motorboats and also includes a shoreside expo, seminars (at extra cost), and demonstrations of boating equipment and procedures. Baltimore is the last stop on this five-port event, which kicked off back in January in Ft. Lauderdale, hitting San Diego, Anacortes (WA), and Warwick (RI) along the way. Produced by PassageMaker Magazine, Trawler Fest is a playground for boat lubbers and abandoned fish-people looking for a way back home. This deal gives you access to afternoon activities, including interactive demonstrations on topics such as life-raft inflation, man-overboard recovery, and engine-room inspections. Nautical newbies can learn a thing or two from PassageMaker Magazine and Ocean Voyager, two publications included in your complimentary welcome kit, along with a reusable tote bag and an assortment of yachty schwag, which is far less abominable than its homophonic cousin, yeti schwag.
Recently featured in the Baltimore Sun, Diablita boasts a tantalizing menu chock-full of contemporary Mexican cuisine, with dashes of Caribbean flavor and Texas 'tude tossed in for good measure. Exotic starters, such as crispy, chipotle-encrusted calamari ($9) or pulled-pork empanadas ($9), set the stage for meals made of fresh, novel ingredients. Diablita serves burritos with rice and beans, pico de gallo, and cilantro sour cream; burritos come in mushroom ($11), chicken ($10), and shrimp ($14.50) varieties, each flavor hailing from an alternate reality in the tortilla time continuum. Fajitas such as the tequila-lime chicken ($16) and the adobe-marinated pork ($15.50) flank their protein-rich centerpieces with masterfully sautéed onions. House-made churros ($6.50) conclude the comestible parade with sugar-ignited fireworks.
