With the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum
Put your Bay and boating knowledge to the test with Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in a series of free virtual trivia nights. No registration is required. Guests are encouraged to team up with members of their household or connect with friends virtually and join the game. Rounds are themed, and questions may cover anything from Chesapeake cuisine to landmarks to knot puns, and everything in between. Make sure to find the event on CBMM’s Facebook page each Monday for a hint about a round in that week’s game.
Gardening for a Budget-Minded Kitchen
6–7 p.m. For ages 14+. While some veggies are already affordable at the grocery store or farmer’s market and might not be worth the effort to grow (hello, onions!), there are some other kitchen staples that you can easily grow at home to save money. Tune into this class to find out what they are and listen for other money saving cooking tips.
