Restaurant Week kicks-off Thursday with "The First Course - Appetizer Challenge" that will have local chefs going mano a mano as they try to create the tastiest appetizer in Charm City.

Judged by the public and a panel of celebrity judges, the competition will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Inner Harbor Amphitheater. Free samples of the appetizers will be handed out (while supplies last) to allow spectators to make their call on the best appetizer and select the People's Choice winner. Awards will also be presented based on judges' choice, and best use of locally sourced ingredients.

Five students from Peabody Dance, a department of the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, will perform a new multimedia piece titled A Dance Called Baltimore on Friday, Aug. 13, at 12:30 pm and Saturday, Aug. 14, at 6:00 pm as part of the Baltimore Song Project. The free performances will take place both inside and outside Baltimore's historic North Avenue Market, 20 West North Avenue.

The new work, choreographed by Meghan Flanigan, will be danced to the original song and a remix of Baltimore by London-based composer Mika Sellens, who has extended the music and added the voices of the dancers and field recordings made in the city. The performance will also include the Baltimore Song Project mural created by students at the Maryland Institute of Art.

It'll be a weekend full of laughs in Highlandtown as the fourth annual Baltimore Improv Festival tickles the funny bone of lovers of improv with acts from NYC, Boston, Philly and all around the region. Fledgling and amateur comedians can also learn a thing or two at workshops held throughout the weekend.

Show tickets are $12-$15, and multi-show ticket pricing is available. Registration for the Saturday and Sunday workshops is $25-$45. Creative Alliance members will enjoy discounts on show tickets and workshop registrations.
