SING-ALONG CRUISE

Spend an evening on the water -- and help raise money for Agape House, a home for abused and abandoned children in West Baltimore. The ninth annual Fell's Point Sing-along Cruise Thursday features acoustic music by Love Riot, Eli in Lust, Jon French, Lu Maestro, Billy Kemp, Jahworks and Joe Finn.

You'll board the Lady Baltimore at 7:30 p.m. at Broadway Pier and return at midnight. Sponsored by Max's on Broadway, Miller Reserve Amber Ale and the City Paper, the cruise is expected to draw between 300 and 500 people.

Tickets are $30, $25 in advance. The cruise includes an open bar, and you must be 21 to attend. Get tickets at The Horse You Came In On, The Admiral's Cup, Wyatt's, Max's on Broadway or Leadbetter's. Tickets also may be ordered by calling 668-7081.

Sample some Korean food, attend Tai Kwon Do demonstrations and watch colorfully costumed dancers tomorrow at the Korean Festival, the last of the Showcase of Nations' summertime series of ethnic festivals this year. Join Baltimore's Korean community as it celebrates its heritage from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hopkins Plaza, between Baltimore Street, Charles Street and Hopkins Place. Free. Information: 625-2442.

DUTCH TREAT

More than 60 pieces of ceramics from 19 artists constitute "Facets of the Same Nature," an exhibit of contemporary Dutch ceramics that opens next week at the National Museum of Ceramic Art, 250 W. Pratt St.

DELECTABLE DISHES

Food historian Sue Latini will be cooking from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow at the 1840 House -- a historic rowhouse at 800 E. Lombard St. where visitors can journey back to the 19th century. She'll show you some traditional ways of preparing Southern fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, and chicken pot pie.
