You can participate anytime on Memorial Day anywhere you are in the world or head on over to Checkerspot Brewing Co. to join the Baltimore Military Muster on a 1.5-mile walk to Federal Hill and back. Afterward, enjoy a drink at the brewery, tasty biscuits from popup Villainous Biscuits, and hot pizza from veteran-run Tiny Brick Oven. And remember to wear blue!
