Head to Brunch at Old Maryland Grill

When you come to Old Maryland Grill for brunch, expect the unexpected. Chef Joshua Perkins turns to the classic crops of Maryland as his muse, sourcing regional ingredients and pulling from the agricultural traditions of the state to create his unique brunch dishes.

If you like a savory breakfast dish, try the crab cake Benedict, served with jumbo lump crab over a pair of poached eggs and a latke, all topped with creamy bearnaise sauce. You can also build your own egg scramble with ingredients like goat cheese, spinach, and mushrooms. Craving something sweeter? Then the caramelized pecan monkey bread should do the trick, or maybe the fluffy buttermilk pancakes with chantilly cream and maple syrup on top.

If you don't make it to brunch, try Old Maryland Grill for dinner. Chef Joshua creates tasty New American eats for dinner, too, and the food menu is only part of the equation. The wine list boasts dozens of options, including many bottles hailing from the state of Maryland.

Don’t Miss the Grand Opening of Bowlero College Park on February 23rd

Come out for the official grand opening bash on Friday, February 23rd at 6 p.m. a free game of bowling when you RSVP, plus some comped arcade play (up to $5).

While you and your crew bowl, enjoy a round of drinks and some bites, as well. The full bar boasts much more than just domestic beer and a couple of wines — there's a full roster of craft brews and fine wines, plus an extensive list of cocktails. Share the Dunk Tank, a fish bowl swimming with Bacardi Black, Bacardi Silver, and Bacardi Coconut, plus Bols Amaretto and fruit juices. Order a few starters to nibble on, like the spicy shrimp poppers, the Nacho Avalanche with ground beef and queso on top, or a skillet of marinara-smothered meatballs with gooey mozzarella. The menu also offers larger entrees, such as pizzas, burgers, and sandwiches.

Delve Into Local History at the Greenbelt Museum

When Greenbelt, Maryland was established in 1937, it wasn't your average American town. Under the umbrella of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal, Greenbelt was created as a sort of social experiment to test the practicality and effectiveness of a cooperative garden community in modern-day America. Today, you can learn all about how this "experiment" unfolded at the Greenbelt Museum.

The Greenbelt Museum explores the history of the town via a former private residence that dates back to this time period. It's filled with furnishings from the late '30s through the early '50s, many of which were actually created by the Resettlement Administration and doled out to Greenbelt's first residents. The other objects represent middle-class life in those post-depression years, from classic Fiesta ware to vintage children's toys. Come and take a Sunday tour of the house between 1 and 5 p.m. on Sundays, no reservations required. Admission is $3 for anyone over 12.
