What: Maryland Zoo

Where: 1 Safari Place

When: Friday-Monday, 10am-4pm

Take advantage of this amazing Spring weather in February with a trip to the Maryland Zoo! The prices at the zoo dropped, just like the temperature should have, but lucky for us, that means low prices and high temperatures. From now until the end of February, the Maryland Zoo will only be charging $10 for admission. Go check out the animals to remind you of winter like the Arctic Fox or the penguins, which you can see up close and personal with Penguin Encounters Tour. Is your mind set on summer? Then  go see some warm weather animals like the Cheetah, African Bullfrog, or Reticulated Giraffe. But, for just $10, you can see any of these animals and many more, so hurry over before this deal ends!

Explore Baltimore: Five and Dime Ale House

February 21st, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Five and Dime Ale House

Where: 901 W 36th St

When: Mon.-Thurs. 11am-12am, Friday-Sunday 11am-2am

With modern twist to the old diner and tavern lifestyle, Five and Dime Ale House is a great place to grab an amazing dinner with friends. Their menu features a little bit of everything, including tacos, fish and chips, mussels, or burgers so everyone will be able to get what they’re in the mood for. My personal favorite is the fig and prosciutto sandwich which has the tastiest balsamic vinegar I have ever had and is loaded with tons of prosciutto. But even if you don’t try this favorite, one of their many other delicious dishes is guaranteed to exceed your expectation. The great food isn’t the only draw to this restaurant though. Five and Dime also has a nice atmosphere for catching a game and a meal after work. With it’s warm lighting and rustic-chic styling, you will be instantly relaxed when you walk into Five and Dime, and that relaxation will only continue as you enjoy your food and watch a sport of choice on one of their TVs. So, whether you go for the tastes, the variety, the atmosphere, or just because I said to, Five and Dime will make every penny worth it.

Album Review: Elton John – Tumbleweed Connection

February 17th, 2017 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Claire Riley’20

Elton John – Tumbleweed Connection

Released: October 30, 1970

Rate: 10/10

LIYL: Billy Joel, Chicago, Paul McCartney, James Taylor

First and foremost, I would like to give credit to Billy McLaughlin (Class of 2020) for recommending this masterpiece of an album. In “Tumbleweed Connection,” Elton John incorporates a unique twist on his classic and iconic style that has made an indelible mark on music history. He takes his audience to the cowboy era of the Midwest in each ballad with his mesmerizing and soulful piano-playing and distinct vocals accompanied by the harmonica, drums, guitar, and harmonies that are sure to stick in your head and draw you right back in when the album concludes. Some of my personal favorites include “Ballad of a Well-Known Gun,” “Country Comfort,” and “Where To Now Saint Peter?” Read the rest of this entry »
