In case anyone in the Baltimore (and Ellicott City area) would like to go, here's the invitation I received from the Maryland Horticultural Society. I can't go myself, but it looks like a very pleasant way for a gardener to spend an evening. (In order to go, you will need to join - http://www.mdhorticulture.org/index.htm ) --
