It’s a festival comprised of all your favorite holiday things; ginger breads, toys and other holiday treats!
It all started on December 8, 1990, thus making it 25 years! It started in the Convention center located downtown; it was a big affair! Now there have been many additions making it an absolute wonderland! Santa is a big player now, kids get to sit on his lap, mail him letters, and even get a ride in his special sleigh pulled by “reindeer”. It really brings the north pole to you. Over the years it has grown to be the largest holiday festival on the East Coast!
So when and Baltimore stop the Festival of Trees to start the holiday cheer!

Fight Hunger!

November 23rd, 2015 by Allison Langley

fight hungerLets all #fighthunger!

With the holiday and cold weather quickly approaching it is important that we take the time to think of others who are less fortunate. Fight Hunger is a national campaign aimed to aide in providing food for those who are in dire need. It is an excellent and creative campaign! The idea is to film one big fight sequence from Austin to Philadelphia. What a cool way to promote such an important cause! By the way, one of those stops is Baltimore! Check out their go fund me page here, and donate! They are also accepting canned goods! So raid your cupboards or hit the grocery store and then drop it all off at the WLOY station by December 14th! We are looking forward to seeing a huge pile! They also accept clothing!

I am no stranger to Grano Pasta Bar, in fact, I love the pasta bar. Its intimate setting is a great place for you to get your favorite pasta with your best friends. At Grano, you pick your favorite pasta and favorite sauce and whatever else suits your fancy. I am personally the biggest fan of Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce, simple I know, but absolutely delicious! Their vodka sauce is to die for! They have plenty of options from farfalle to penne and all the sauces your heart desires. Along with bread and many other options, maybe a cannoli or three after dinner? Then you are set for a great evening with great food! Don’t have time to sit down? That’s cool just do take-out, I promise it is just as good!

What is wackier than a HUGE pink flamingo on top of a restaurant? I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can come up with anything else!
Café Hon hosts the HUGE pink flamingo! It’s a delicious café and popular spot in the town of Hampden. Café Hon boasts out-there wigs and great food. Denise Whiting opened it in 1992, but our favorite flamingo wasn’t introduced until 2002. Unfortunately, in 2009 our big guy went into “hibernation” for a little but he came back better than ever in fiberglass form! Café Hon has also been featured on a popular Food Network show!
Stop by, get some great food and take a million pictures of this wild flamingo!

Loyola Radio Celebrates 40th Anniversary!

November 17th, 2015 by Allison Langley

wlcr2 This Thursday marks a momentous occasion, with the 40th anniversary of Loyola Radio’s founding! Loyola radio started on a happy day, November 19, 1975 originally under the call letters WVLC (The Voice of Loyola College). It was founded by John Franklin- ’76 grad, and Jay Guyther- grad of ’78. We then became WLCR (Loyola College Radio) until 2002 when we became your favorite radio station, WLOY!

In order to celebrate 40 incredible years, this Saturday from 1-5pm we will be having alumni from the 70’s to present, stop by to speak with us about where they are now and what it was like “back in the day.” We will have a live show with some of the alumni telling us some funny stories of their days in the station. The current staff will be giving tours of the station and giving updates on what we have been up to lately, and some funny stories of our own. There will be food, of course! It will be a great day filled with some celebration and stories!

So let’s give a big happy birthday to Loyola Radio!
