Dust & Corruption Calendar for March 2014

Winter has been lingering like an unwanted guest. We just had a few inches of snow and a day of subfreezing temperatures in Baltimore. Hard to believe that in a few weeks the Cherry Blossom Festival is kicking off in DC. And I'm worried I'm getting a cold or sinus infection. Blech.

So here's some stuff to ride out the monotony until spring really arrives....

As always, the Observatory in Brooklyn, NY, has a schedule of fascinating talks and workshops.

And Atlas Obscura always lists interesting things in different cities.
