Lithuanian Festival

There are nearly 20,000 Lithuanian-Americans in Maryland, and many of them will be celebrating 741 years of their culture today at Hopkins Plaza. You don't have to be Lithuanian to enjoy this ethnic festival; just show up and have fun. Naturally, the food of Lithuania will be a big part of the festival. Sample such gastronomic delights as cepelinai (potato and meat dumplings), eslinkai (a crepelike treat) and dazra, the Lithuanian sausage, made with shredded pork and spices. There will be music and dancing throughout the day, including a performance by the dance group Gyvataras.

The Lithuanian Festival, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today at Hopkins Plaza, between Baltimore and Lombard streets and Hopkins Place and Charles Street. Admission is free. Call (410) 825-3102.

King of the ring

Join wrestle-maniac and all-round snazzy dresser Macho Man Randy Savage (Lord, help me, but I love that name) at the World Wrestling Federation's second annual "King of the Ring" competition at the Baltimore Arena on June 19. That's Father's Day (just in case you'd forgotten), so why not treat dad to a night of wrestling events featuring the superstars of professional wrestling? Last year, Bret "Hit Man" Hart beat Bam Bam Bigelow (wrestlers have the coolest names) to win the first "King of the Ring" crown.

"King of the Ring" 7:45 p.m. June 19 at the Baltimore Arena. Tickets are $20, $15, $12. Call (410) 481-SEAT.
