BALTIMORE Filter: I am a college student who will be living in Baltimore City (near Little Italy) this winter break for six weeks. I don't know anyone in this city. Are there any "discussion" groups/activities I can get involved in while I'm there?

I'm a college senior who'll be house-sitting this winter break. Although I know my way around Baltimore, I don't know really know anyone in the city. I also have no car.
That being said, I would like to meet people somehow. I'm trying to overcome my shyness and I think that holing myself up for six weeks is probably not a step forward.
I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, but an activity that involves discussion (more intellectual, less small talk...which I am not very good at anyway) is what I'm looking for.
I know volunteering has been cited as a good way to meet people, but I feel that volunteering for just six weeks is kind of strange....I guess it would depend on the type of activity but again, I have no car. Other than that, I'm hesitant to state my interests because I'd like to be open to all options.
Thanks in advance!
