And with great folks like those at Atomic Books getting on board and hosting the festivities, reading couldn’t look more appealing. Read More →

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 →
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 →

And the Towson University debate team, comprised largely of African-American women, is leading the way.

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 →
After two years in which to consider his assault of a handcuffed drug suspect in October 2011, Officer Anthony Williams showed absolutely no sense of remorse at his sentencing. “I shouldn’t be in this situation; I did nothing wrong,” he said. “Would I change what I did that day? No.”
What did he do that day? Read More →
