catch of the day fish (2)World Book Night Pre-Party at Atomic Books

World Book Night gets some of the best new books off of the shelves and into the hands of people who usually have little access to books because of means or geography. And with great folks like those at Atomic Books getting on board and hosting the festivities, reading couldn’t look more appealing. Read More →

Dandelion Greens - Don't they look delicious?

Dandelion Greens – Don’t they look delicious?

This column, That Nature Show, is about the nature right under your nose: in our backyards, playgrounds and parks!  Stop and look around, you’ll be amazed at what surrounds you.

The Shake Shack  is opening here in 2015. I’m as excited as the next kid. I had a Shake Burger on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where my sister lives, where it is Breederville. It’s all moms with the $3 million strollers, and kids in Vuitton, but the playing field was leveled: we were eating the same greasy burgers!  And I felt proud that I was going home to Maryland where  day care costs more than college.  At least back at home I can forage for dandelion greens in my backyard to save money.  Read More →

The Montana Politician with the Amazing Maryland Accent is Ba-ack!

Back in November, we featured a TV commercial by Montana senate candidate Matt Rosendale, mostly because of his amazing Maryland accent. Well, those wild Eastern Shore vowels are back in Rosendale’s newest campaign ad. And it’s even more amazing. I really can’t get enough of this guy.

Duff Goldman’s Cakes Are All Over This New Katy Perry Video

Charm City Cakes proprietor designed Katy Perry's "Birthday" cakes

If I had directed the video for Katy Perry’s new single “Birthday,” I definitely wouldn’t have decided to write the lyrics on cakes, notepads, and other props. With lines like “So let me get you in your birthday suit / It’s time to bring out the big balloons” I think I’d try to focus the viewer’s attention on something else. But then if I had directed the video it wouldn’t have turned into a three-and-a-half-minute showcase of Duff Goldman’s cake-making chops.

The Charm City Cakes proprietor was tapped to craft the ingenious confections for the video (though as you might expect, the cakes were created at Goldman’s Los Angeles-based Cakemix bakery). Standout include a suit cake, a hamburger cake, and a Rubik’s Cube cake. Read More →

Towson Debate Team Help Transform Stodgy College Debate World

0 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 17, 2014 9:56am


The high school and college debate worlds has long been the provenance of, well, nerds. (I can say that because I did debate in high school. And I was a total nerd.) Other critics argue that the extracurricular activity reinforces traditional forms of privilege and power. But in recent years, the debate world has been transformed by “an increasingly diverse group of participants…[who are] mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics,” as Jessica Carew Kraft writes in the Atlantic. And the Towson University debate team, comprised largely of African-American women, is leading the way.

Mall in Columbia Welcomes Four New Retailers to Its Open-Air Plaza This Summer

0 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 17, 2014 9:05am


This summer the Mall in Columbia is welcoming four new retailers to its 70,000-square-foot open-air plaza, renovated and expanded in the fall of last year. Women’s clothing stores Anthropologie and Talbots will join Maggiano’s Little Italy and wine and grill bar Seasons 52 in laying down stakes at the Howard County shopping center.

These new openings are the second phase of the renovation at the Mall in Columbia, but they are only the beginning of the city’s three-decade plan to “develop 13 million square feet of retail, commercial, residential, hotel and cultural space.” Read More →
