Thanks to the Maryland Wineries Association, Whole Foods, Student Activities, the Senior Class and us, we had a great time Thursday night. Sampling a variety of Maryland wines in a tasting guided by Maryland Wineries Association Executive Director Kevin Atticks, our group of senior class members got an education on tasting, evaluating and selecting wines. We also had a large selection of cheeses donated by Whole Foods in Mt. Washington (and more bought by WLOY) so people could match flavors between wine, cheese, crackers, spreads, nuts, and more. Great local musicians Don Kim and Zia Hassan treated us to some fantastic music as they moved from the stage to rambling minstrels, serenading tables throughout the room. It was such a great night we were instructed to do it again as soon as possible! Click to see the photo gallery Read the rest of this entry »

Featuring the return of Ed Stanley and Michelle! With a theme featuring movies, and a special focus on the James Bond 007 movies, expect a great show. Michelle will remind her dad that he’s getting old, and Ed will show her how those big round vinyl things play music. Tune in to her multi-generational mayhem!

In addition, we will be hosting a free raffle where you will have the chance to win FREE tickets to see Crystal Castles perform at Rams Head Live. All are welcome so feel free to bring any friends, acquaintances or estranged family members that you haven’t spoken to in decades. We look forward to seeing you there!

We have been waiting for this return for quite some time now! After some time off, Justin Timberlake is back and better than ever. His new album, The 20/20 Experience, hits shelves this week and I just listened to an advanced copy of it. One word…incredible! The lyrics, music and vibe are very reminiscent of the JT we all know and love with a bit of a fresh, modern twist. Read the rest of this entry »
