catch of the day fish (2)Spend enough time at the gym or going to fitness classes and you’re likely to see your body start to slim down. But more often than not, you’ll likely see your wallet start to slim down, too. Sure, our bodies are temples, but sometimes the cost of maintenance for those temples (particularly those that could qualify for the historic registry) can add up. But thank goodness for the good people behind Waterfront Wellness—the series that offers free fitness classes, including yoga, boxing boot camp, Parkour and Zumba, from 8:00am to 10:00am most Saturdays and Sundays all summer long at West Shore Park.

Zipcar’s Baltimore Operation Is Growing

A Zipcar in Baltimore

Hey, little Zipcar. What’s your name?

If you love “multi-modal transportation options,” rejoice. Zipcar is expanding its Baltimore operation. The company has moved into a bigger office space in Harbor East, and it’s adding five vehicles to its Baltimore fleet, bringing the number up over 200.

Given the requirement to return each car to its designated parking spot, the subscription car-rental service falls short of viability as a commuting option, which is too bad. But speaking as someone who has lived the carless lifestyle in Baltimore, being able to run a simple errand without trying to bum a ride from someone is incredibly liberating. And for multi-day trips, it sure as heck beats renting a car the old-fashioned way. Read More →

Harbor East’s FIT+ Festival: A Street Project of Sport & Health

Health and Sport Festival

catch of the day fish (2)Well, it is officially, absolutely, undeniably beach season. That is to say, it’s swimsuit season. And sure, maybe you’ve been dutifully toning and sculpting since your New Year’s resolution six months ago (um, can we borrow your self-discipline, please?) but then again, maybe not. Of course, the good news is that it’s never too late to get in shape and prioritize your health, and a little really can go a long way toward making you not just look good, but also feel good. And we all know that feeling better makes us look better, too. It’s a chicken and egg thing. And besides, a healthy body isn’t just for the summer—it’s important all year round. That’s why we’re marking our calendars for Harbor East’s FIT+ Festival on Saturday, June 21st. It’s a celebration of all things health. And it is fun (and healthy) for the whole family. Read More →

porch pounders ad JUNE

Ever heard of a Porch Pounder? It’s the label wine industry people give to wines that go down easily, won’t break the bank and always deliver. It’s a crowd pleaser. Open one at the end of a long week, and you’re sure to start off the weekend in a good place. We’ve partnered with Bin 604 to bring to you the Porch Pounder of the Month and a few other wine suggestions. The staff at Bin 604 regularly tastes over one-hundred wines every week, so you can count on the selections to be ones you’ll want to pound on the porch…or anywhere at all!
