Kooper's North a presence in the community [Lutherville-Timonium]

It's hard to believe that Kooper's North has only been open since 2012. I feel like it's been there forever, an essential part of our community for classic American food and a convenient meeting place with friends. Owners Patrick and Katie Russell and Miles Perman always have something going on. In fact, Kooper's North is no longer the newbie; Kooper's Jacksonsville just opened in June.

After working at the Thames Street Tavern, Patrick Russell eventually purchased the restaurant/bar in 1997 and the Kooper's brand was born. In addition to their three locations, Kooper's also has a food truck, the Chowhound Burger Wagon, and they were recently listed in Zagat's 2014 as "must-try burgers across the country." Not too shabby for a local joint.

On Oct. 20, Kooper's joined forces with the Living Classrooms Foundation for the Kooper's Golf Classic, a fundraising event at Hunt Valley Golf Course. More than 70 golfers participated to raise money for the foundation as well as health and wellness lacrosse programming.

Patrick, a former player and coach, has his children involved in the sport, and he is also enthusiastic about his newly formed club lacrosse team, the Kooper's Lacrosse Club. According to Patrick, "Kooper's North is the perfect hub for the lacrosse community in Baltimore County. We are just a couple miles away from their homes, schools and fields." The club held its first-ever tryouts last year, and now has six teams competing in tournaments this year. The team generally practices at St. Paul's School and has teams for players in the classes of 2019 through 2024.

Kooper's North is hosting a Thanksgiving Eve Party on Nov. 26, 8 p.m. to midnight. If you're craving a night out with a live band and a stellar crab cake before Thanksgiving with the family, be sure to stop by this local destination.

Congratulations to Nick Jarosinski and Lindsay Housholder, who tied the knot on Oct. 11 at the Historic Oakland Manor in Columbia. Nick is a partner and manager at Greenspring Carpet Source in Timonium and has been an invaluable resource to area residents for the past 11 years. After graduating Towson University, Nick learned the designer flooring trade from his boss and mentor, Nathan Shapiro. You couldn't meet a nicer and more professional guy than Nick.
