The Gift

What It Is: Tickets to the 4th Annual Rye’s Up Against Cystic Fibrosis Charitable Gala. The event benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Maryland and will be held next Sunday (March 1st) at B&O American Brasserie. It’s a project of the Baltimore Bartenders Guild, and all of the guild’s members will be on hand mixing their individual Bulleit & Dickel Rye elixirs for you all night long. Local restaurants and caterers such as B&O, Ten Ten, and Dooby’s will also be on hand, of course, with bites to compliment your drinks. Add to that some live jazz and blues, a silent auction, and some local beer by Union Craft Brew, and you’ve got a perfect evening. You know we’re big on giving the gift of an experience or night out. Trust us– though the event is ephemeral, the memory of a great time  leaves a long lasting impression. And this is one event that can’t fail. Tickets available online. $65. Read More →

The View From Halcyon Farm: Keeping Warm

0 Written by: | Saturday, Feb 21, 2015 10:16am

With the bitter cold week we’ve had in this area, and more bitter temperatures expected next week, we struggle to keep warm. Our furnaces run 24 hours a day attempting to keep the house warm, and so we thought we’d share some elegant tips to keep you warm without cranking up the heat too much.

In nearly every shelter magazine, you can amuse yourself by playing “spot the blanket.” Photo editors love casually throwing a blanket across the end of the bed, tossing one over the arm of a sofa or stacking them unrealistically and artfully next to vintage books.


Nothing’s better than wrapping yourself in a cozy blanket and taking a brief nap, reading a great book or watching this weekend’s upcoming Oscars. For bitter cold days like these, we love a heavy alpaca or cashmere blanket. If you take good care of them, they will last for years and become a treasured possession. Read More →
