As it prepares to reopen following a $28 million renovation, Baltimore Center Stage announced today that it has a new pre-show restaurant vendor.
Following a recent visit to Baltimore, travel writer Nina Sovich has determined that the city has improved since famed American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald lived here in the 1930s. That’s a fine conclusion.

With Thanksgiving come and gone, you’ve probably seen neighbors putting up Christmas lights and decorations. You may have even had the chance to see the opening of Hampden’s dazzling light display on 34th Street this past weekend.

Now the two are teaming together in a new, more permanent location of Keeper’s Vintage on Read Street, opening just in time for unique holiday shopping. Read More →
