Keep on giving, Baltimore!
Picture this: You, tired, trudging through a jam-packed mall. Children. Lots of screaming children. Harried people, pushing into your way at the clothing rack. Christmas music.
Now picture this: None of it happening. With this year's b gift guide, none of it has to. Everything is local. No malls, so ditch that scary idea. Yes, it can be done.
We've got some suggestions for pretty much everyone on your list: fashionistas, foodies, techies -- even parents who say they don't want anything (don't believe them).
So breathe a deep sigh of relief. Consider this our gift to you -- and your sanity. -- By Jordan Bartel, Wesley Case, Sam Sessa and John-John Williams IV (Lloyd Fox/Baltimore Sun /November 19, 2012)
Heavy Seas Alehouse is throwing one of those stag shopping nights. You know, men hate to shop.
But if you ply them with manly things like specialty bourbons, Heavy Seas beer and steak appetizers, they'll fold like tents. Heavy Seas Alehouse is presenting its Stag Night with Smyth Jewelers and Parfections Handmade Gourmet Chocolates.
