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 →
If you weren’t sure before the weekend, you are by now. Fall is here. And if you haven’t stocked up on your warm and fuzzy things yet, it’s about time you did. And luckily, Milagro in Hampden has been doing a lot of the work for us. The adorable boutique is usually a place we hit up for gift shopping , but lately it’s full of some of the funkiest and most unique fall looks you’re likely to see around. The finds are sourced from around the world, and can make even the most subdued colors of the season look fresh and fun. Read More →

If you’ve popped into Bazaar in in Hampden, you know that some of their offerings are truly, well, bizarre. It’s a carefully curated oddities and curiosities shop. And that can mean everything from jewelry made from quail feet, to civil war era doctors’ tools, to all manner of preserved specimens peering out at you from jars of formaldehyde. We love Bazaar because it functions as a perfect blend of antique store, museum, and place-you-can-actually-find-cool-stuff. But they don’t just sell cool stuff– they also offer the opportunity to learn how to make your own. Like with their DIY taxidermy workshops, for example. Read More →
Hampden’s 34th Street Christmas display is famous not only locally, but world-wide as well. For decades, the lights (and animatronic reindeer and Santa Claus in a Ravens jersey and sculptures made out of scrap metal) have brought joy (and traffic) to Hampden. But this year, the lights may go dark for the first time in 70 years.
Get those creative juices flowing and start your mask today! Masks due to Mud and Metal by Sept. 28th, and we’ll see you all on Oct. 31st for the Halloween Fest, where this year’s winner will be announced. Good luck! We hope you win.
