Carrot Cake Day
Wednesday, February 3, 5-10PM
Enjoy homemade carrot cake and carrot cake inspired cocktails on special from 5-10PM. Carrot Cake has been made since the Middle Ages, when sugar and other sweeteners were rare and very expensive, and so people used sweet vegetables to flavor their puddings. During World War II, the British government rationed many luxury foods and household staples including sugar. To appease the nation’s sweet tooth, the Ministry of Food promoted recipes for carrot puddings, carrot-filled pies, and carrot cakes. Today, many families in the UK still serve carrot cake on Christmas Day!
Leap Year Day
Monday, February 29
Our team will craft the original Leap year cocktail for you as we prepare ourselves for another 4 years of hectic madness. Depending on how you calculate it, the Leap Year cocktail either turned 86 this year — or is just embarking on its 20s. The exact date this drink was invented is documented in the Savoy Cocktail Book, bartender Harry Craddock’s popular mixing manual, first published in 1930. This blend of gin, orange liqueur, lemon, and sweet vermouth was born on Leap Day, 1928.
Craddock noted that the drink was “said to have been responsible for more [marriage] proposals than any other cocktail that has ever been mixed.” That’s quite a claim, although it’s hard to know from Craddock’s blurb whether all that Leap Year-fueled question-popping resulted in engagements.

You know we love Christopher Schafer and all he does. You may have heard us sing his praises for his work with the Baltimore Fashion Alliance— which promotes local designers and helps creative, fashion-minded Baltimoreans find their footing in the fashion industry. Or perhaps we were in awe of the time and labor he gives to Sharp Dressed Man, through which he supports low-income men re-entering the workforce by providing them with high quality, gently used menswear– which can often make or break a man’s opportunities for employment. But all of that isn’t even Schafer’s primary occupation. For the last five years, Schafer has been Baltimore’s leading clothier for gorgeous, unique menswear– making this town just that much more easy on the eyes. And every local man with an eye for style is grateful for that (as are the women who love them). Well, today Schafer’s circle of influence is about to widen, as the clothier launches his new online store– a first for the company. Online, customers will be able to purchase Schafer’s handmade silk ties, bow ties, pocket squares and accessories. And since this also marks the company’s 5th Anniversary, there’s even an added perk– Schafer’s way of celebrating and saying “thank you.” Read More →
