Christmas Village Returns with a Grand Opening

Christmas Village

catch of the day fish (2)It didn’t take long for Baltimore to get on board with the Christmas Village that sprung up a couple years ago and has become much beloved here ever since. This take on the German holiday tradition brings much light, merriment, and holiday spirit to West Shore Park starting this weekend, and all the way through Christmas. So be sure to bring the family down on Sunday for a great way to unwind from Thanksgiving madness and sail smoothly into Christmastime cheer. It all begins with an official visit from the Christkind (the traditional Christmas Angel) from Nuremberg Germany, a traditional prologue, and a meet and greet with the Christkind and Santa. Not to mention the tree lighting. Read More →

Turkey Trots Abound on Thanksgiving

Turkey Trot

catch of the day fish (2)Alright. If people want to throw tomatoes at us for recommending a Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, fair enough. We’ve personally spent enough Thanksgiving adamantly rejecting the suggestion that we do anything but alternate between lying on the couch and feasting. So sure, if the idea of exercise on that particular day offends you, feel free to skip it. But if you’d like the opportunity to get your blood pumping (and build up a hearty appetite before the feast) signing up for a little 5K walk or run may just be the ticket. Read More →

Thanksgiving Ice Cream Pies from The Charmery

Charmery Pie

catch of the day fish (2)Sure, a few days ago we said we wouldn’t trust our Thanksgiving dessert table to anyone by Dangerously Delicious Pies. And we still stand by that…kind of. But how were we to know that our top fave locavore ice cream shop, The Charmery, was offering their own version of a Thanksgiving pie delight? What began with us investigating their ice cream offerings in preparation for serving our own pies a la mode quickly spun out of control as we discovered The Charmery’s Thanksgiving special: a pie made from spiced pumpkin ice cream with a salty caramel topping and graham cracker crust. Can we possibly resist? Read More →

Not too Late for Dangerously Delicious Thanksgiving Pie Orders

catch of the day fish (2)We always start out with big ambitions for Thanksgiving. We’ve got recipes clipped from magazines, other people’s best dishes favorited on Instagram, and a well-planned schedule for how we’re going to get it all done with room in the oven to spare. And yet, as the big day draws nearer, some of those plans tend to drop away. The several Martha Stewart side dishes we’d planned to make have dwindled to one or two, and we’re delegating responsibilities left and right. But you don’t want to farm out the oh-so-important task of pie-making to just anyone. After all, pie is generally delicious, but Thanksgiving is its biggest day of the year, and can absolutely steal the show when you get a good one. So be sure to leave your guests wanting more (and with lasting memories of the most delicious Thanksgiving ever) with at least one pie from Dangerously Delicious Pies– the only people we’d trust our dessert course to.

catch of the day fish (2)Need some proof that the most wonderful time of the year is really upon us? Well, you can’t really get much more magical than our favorite new local holiday tradition– Window Wonderland in Harbor East. It’s the absolutely fabulous collaboration between Maryland Art Place and Harbor East that brings the vision and work of local artists to the holiday windows of Harbor East’s top shopping destinations. And the big unveiling happens this Wednesday, November 19th. Be sure to head on down from 5:30-8:30pm to tour the windows, meet the artists and watch as a specially appointed panel of judges choose their favorite, and award a  $1000 cash prize the the “Best in Show.” There will also be carolers (of course), acrobats, street performers, ice sculptures and festive music to fill the streets with enough holiday cheer to last you well into December and beyond. And with a chill in the air, you’ll want to warm up indoors as participating Window Wonderland retailers offer complimentary refreshments and treats; plus you can enjoy drink specials and extended happy hours from participating restaurants.

MW Tavern Nov

catch of the day fish (2)The Mt. Washington Tavern is great all year round, of course. But when the temperature starts to dip and it’s time to get cozy and warm, the Tavern truly shines. For 35 years now, the Mt. Washington Tavern has been welcoming us in from the cold with food, drinks, and company that are sure to keep a body warm. Whether you’re stopping in for one of their awesome happy hours or for the best Thanksgiving meal around, November at the Tavern just can’t be beat. And in honor of their big 35th anniversary, they’ve even collaborated with Heavy Seas to launch their very own beer, Old Hilltop Lager Ale in honor of Pimlico Race Course. Perfect reason to race on down to the tavern yourself. Read More →

Pets for Vets

catch of the day fish (2)Veterans have given so much of themselves that we kind of think just one day of honoring their service doesn’t quite cut it. Well, Baltimore County Animal Services seems to agree. That’s why all week long, they’re offering a special promotion to help make it easier for veterans to adopt a loving pet and bring a furry companion home. Through Sunday the 16th, the shelter will waive animal adoption and spay/neuter fees for veterans who are Baltimore County residents. In addition, during the remainder of the year, veterans living in Baltimore County will receive a 50 percent discount on animal adoptions and spay/neuter services. Now that’s a way of saying “thank you.” Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)You probably already know and love lululemon–the geniuses behind some of the hippest and most functional exercise apparel out there. But now Baltimore has a new reason to flock to the Harbor East shop this holiday season: The Baltimore Love Project Capsule Collection.
