catch of the day fish (2)Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day plans. Sure, it’s still a few weeks away, but don’t let the holiday sneak up and catch you unawares with nary a brunch reservation in sight. If your same old spots are feeling a little worn out this year, maybe it’s time to take Mother’s Day back even further than your own family traditions. In fact, maybe you should take it all the way back to 1760, when the Mount Clare House was built. This gorgeous example of colonial architecture was the state’s first museum house, and they host a delightful array of events for families and curious history-oriented visitors each month. And for Mother’s Day this year, they’ll be hosting an afternoon tea fit for a queen (or mom). Read More →

Deep Vision Dance Company

catch of the day fish (2)Nothing is static. We are ever changing. That’s the premise behind this new evening of work from Deep Vision Dance Company, which will run at the Baltimore Theatre Project next weekend. The company, founded in 2011 under the artistic direction of Nicole A. Martinell focuses on work that explores emotional complexity and what Martinell calls the “strange beauty of the world around us.” Ranging from abstract to narrative work, Martinell’s choreography illustrates opposing ends of a continuum – an unfolding journey characterized by detailed characters, spiraling phrases, and a continuous ebb and flow of space. That, and it’s mesmerizing to watch. Read More →

macarons-flavors11_PayardThis 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.

My paternal grandmother (I called her Nana) died of Alzheimer’s when I was in college. In the ten agonizing years before her death, she became mentally lost, increasingly drifting like a seaweed and as sentient. It was horrible. Read More →

Lily Tomlin at Night of the Stars

NOTS 2015 Lily Tomlin Photo

catch of the day fish (2)We’ve got some pretty amazing local talent here in Baltimore, and on the whole, it’s enough to keep us satisfied all year round. Our homegrown music, theater, comedy and art have gained national recognition in recent years– and for good reason. But we’re also lucky enough to be a destination for performers and artists of international renown– and every so often, it’s an act that we’d camp out overnight to get tickets to. Such is Lily Tomlin– the pioneering comedian and actor who Newsweek says “made the one-person show the daring, irreverent art form it is today.” She’s all that and more, and she’ll be in town for one night only– so do not miss your chance.
