Acro Yoga Returns to Baltimore Yoga Village

Acro Yoga

catch of the day fish (2)It’s always amazing to watch hardcore yoga practitioners do their thing. Like, balancing upside down on one toe with their hands twisted behind their should blades. They can do that kind of stuff. So it’s not such a stretch for the yoga world to extend into the kind of circusy, kind of dancy acrobatics world. Many yogis have been getting into acrobatics, since it combines the balance, strength, and flexibility developed in yoga with the trust and communication that come with partner work. Plus, of course, it looks cool. Read More →

Halloween Mask Competition at Mud and Metal

Halloween Mask Competition

catch of the day fish (2)Yes, we know. It’s not even October and already we’re talking Halloween. But we blame all the grocery stores already trotting out their pumpkin-shaped Peeps and ghost-themed breakfast cereals. We’re just keeping up with traffic. And there’s so much to love about Halloween that we think starting early can’t really hurt. After all, it’s a holiday with no gift shopping and no elaborate meals to prepare. Just decorating, getting into the fall spirit, and playing dress up. And thanks to Mud and Metal, we can also get our arts and crafts fix in, too. Read More →

Millstone Cellars Cocktail Takeover at LeGarage

Millstone Cellars

catch of the day fish (2)If that headline just blew your mind, it could be for one of two reasons. The first is that those are a lot of words that don’t necessarily retain any meaning when strung together in that way. The second is that if any of those things (Millstone Cellars or LeGarage, say) do mean anything to you, you know it’s time to get excited and mark your calendar. So here’s where we break it down. Millstone Cellars is our top fave local cider-maker. Are there others? Maybe. But these guys have it down. Everything they brew tastes like it’s from a fairytale, and yet is distinctly grownup. LeGarage is the hot new craft booze spot in Hampden, and also a purveyor of gourmet fries and other eats. And a cocktail takeover is just what it sounds like. Read More →

HampdenFest comes to… Hampden

4 Written by: | Tuesday, Sep 16, 2014 1:05pm


catch of the day fish (2)It never fails. Every year, we see posters and billboards go up for HampdenFest and we’re like, “wait, didn’t that just happen?” This is followed a minute or two later by, “Oh no, wait. That was HonFest.” But what’s the difference? And why do we need two? Don’t both fests celebrate the totally quirky loveable weirdness that is Hampden? Sure, one has lots of scary ladies (and non-ladies) in sky-high, neon beehives and the other has toilet bowl races, but are these two things really appealing to very different demographics? We kinda doubt it.  Nevertheless, the more, the merrier, we say. Read More →

‘Puccisque’ by Liza Hathaway Matthews

catch of the day fish (2)

Hampden is known as a haven for artists and art lovers alike. The neighborhood’s quirky sensibility appeals to the creative spirit; and the character of Hampden’s small businesses offer a charming and unique venue for local artists to show their work in a perfectly Baltimore setting. And all the better if the artwork is the type you might actually want to hang at home on your own walls. Next week, a solo show by Liza Hathaway Matthews (one of our favorite local artists), will open between two fab Hampden boutiques: In Watermelon Sugar and the Antique Exchange, right off of The Avenue.
