Ice Cream for Breakfast at the Charmery

catch of the day fish (2)Weekend brunch is pretty great no matter what. But you know what else is great? Ice cream. And you know when it’s best? Any time. Luckily, the folks over at The Charmery seem to agree with us, which is why they’re hosting an Ice Cream for Breakfast event tomorrow, Saturday, February 7th. They’re declaring it, “the most wonderful, delicious, morning of the year!” And we can’t see why we wouldn’t agree. So throw on your best footie pajamas (yes, dressing in your PJs is encouraged) and head down for the least nutritious breakfast of the year.

Celebrate the Night of the Krampus at Bazaar

0 Written by: | Saturday, Dec 06, 2014 3:00pm


Ah, Krampus. He’s just what you need if all the jingle bells and holly jolly are beginning to make you want to fa-la-la your way under a rock. If you’re unfamiliar, Krampus is basically the anti-Santa in traditional Alpine lore. He looks rather devilish and beastly and behaves as such. While Santa brings gifts for all the good boys and girls, Krampus brings coal and other punishments to all of the naughty ones. So it’s fitting that just across the way from Baltimore’s much beloved Miracle on 34th Street lies Bazaar—the impeccably curated curiosity shop. Where else in town would Krampus pick for his local HQ? Read More →
