 • Maggie's Farm (4341 Harford Road, 410-254-2376, maggiesfarmmd.com) is hosting 'Sters and Spirits, a benefit oyster feast on Oct. 30.  The evening event will feature local oysters by the dozen and half-dozen as well as wine and beer specials and craft cocktails.

A percentage of sales from 'Sters and Spirits is being donated to Our Heroes Network, a Baltimore-based non-profit that provides support and resources to veterans and first responders with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions.

The three-course menu cost $45, and all menu items will be available a la carte, too. Reservations are encouraged.

Snyder's Willow Grove, which left its long-time, flood-plagued Linthicum home this spring, reopened Monday in the Burwood Plaza shopping center in Glen Burnie.

When an April 30 flood damaged Snyder's previous location,  the fourth such setback in recent years, the owners decided to relocate rather than repair the damaged property.

Snyder's is at 7089A Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. For information call 410-694-9449. A new website is under construction.
