So, we thought we should let you know about this weekend’s Cardboard Tube Fighting Tournament. Just your regular old Sunday afternoon activity, right? Sure, you probably get your cardboard tube battle in regularly, but it’s not everyday there’s a full-on tournament. Oh, and just in case your usual cardboard tube is in the shop, they’ll be happy to provide you one on site. So there’s really no excuse not to come and battle your heart out. To be honest, we’re not exactly sure how one decides who wins in a cardboard tube battle. First one to draw blood from a paper cut? Hard to say. But whether you want to throw down or just ogle, the rest of the city’s cardboard enthusiasts will surely be happy to see you at the square on Sunday. Read More →

In only really two major food and beverage categories am I a snob of sorts: beer and pizza. (Hello, Hersh’s Pizza…)
On the beer front, I just feel like there are so many local craft brew choices around here, why on earth would you drink the same thing every time you head for the fridge? I always have a mixed bag of beers on hand. Right now, I’ve got about 10 different beers crammed in my little fridge. They include a few from Frederick’s Flying Dog brewery – Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale, Bloodline Blood Orange IPA and Easy IPA. All delicious! Thank you to my friends at The Wine Source for always recommending great stuff (and selling all of the amazing cheese!) Read More →

Everyone knows Gibson Island for its waterfront. It has 7 miles of shoreline, which includes frontage on the Chesapeake Bay and Magothy River. The sheltered harbor is filled with boats, and the Yacht Club hosts the Junior Fleet and sailboat racing. Admittedly, the beaches are lovely, the lakes are peaceful, and there is nothing quite like a day on the water. But there is another side of the island – the inside. Let’s go there.
About two-thirds of Gibson Island is set aside for recreation, forestry and wildlife conservation. The interior of the island is filled with sun-dappled woods, meadows and rolling hills. Paved roads feel more like meandering pathways, and there is a quiet solitude that is most apparent at 624 Cotterill Road.
Nestled at the end of a tree-lined drive is an extraordinary custom-built cottage just up the hill from the clubhouse – close to all that Gibson Island has to offer, yet very private and off the beaten path. From the cobblestone driveway surrounded by landscaped gardens, to the cedar siding and French board and batten shutters, this Cape Cod was designed to enchant from the start.
Soaring ceilings, lofted spaces, skylights, French doors, and walls of windows fill the house with light. The river recovery heart of pine floors, carved antique wood mantel, window seats, dry bar and other custom details will fill you with delight. You can be master of all you survey from the second story loft.
Curl up on one of the built-in window seats flanking the wood-burning fireplace in the living room and watch fireflies dance on the sweeping back lawn from […]
