Busy night of fun Nov. 20 in Historic District [Mostly Main Street]

There are several interesting things going on in the Historic District Nov. 20. First, there is "Girls' Night Out," which runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Start at The Wine Bin, where you can pick up a complimentary tote bag filled with gifts and coupons.

Sip a little wine, and then head down Main Street where participating businesses will have special sales, demonstrations and snacks. The holiday season is upon us so this is a good way to get a jump on it.

Also Nov. 20, starting at 6:30 p.m.,Tersiguel's is celebrating the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine, a cause for excitement every year at this time. They are serving up over twenty hors d'oeuvres to go with the wine, and plan a photo booth and other fun activities.

I remember years when the wine arrived by stretch limo, and one year it even came to the back parking lot by helicopter. I wonder how it will get here this year. Tersiguel's is also accepting reservations for Thanksgiving Day, when they will offer a traditional dinner along with the usual menu. For reservations, call 410-465-4004.

The Wine Bin is sponsoring a scotch tasting Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. at Fireside Stone and Patio, just across the bridge on Frederick Road opposite the mill. Jason Chad of Impex Beverage will be offering tastings of scotch, sherry and bourbon. Tickets are $30 per person, limited to the first 30 paid reservations. To sign up, call 410-465-7802. Looking ahead, Nov. 29 is Small Business Saturday. For every $100 you spend at The Wine Bin you will receive a $10 gift certificate.

Pie? In spades

Speaking of Thanksgiving, the Little French Market Café is taking orders for a variety of pies you can serve for the big day. After all of that effort you put into the main event why not treat yourself and everyone else to s special dessert.

Their offerings include pumpkin molasses, chocolate cream, sweet potato pecan, apple cranberry and walnut maple cheesecake pies. They cost $19 each and feed about 12 people (probably more after all that turkey.) Place your order by Nov. 22 for pickup by Nov. 26. Call 410-465-5995 to place your order.

Holiday trains

Yes, it's that time again. The day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 28, the Holiday Festival of Trains opens at the B&O Railroad Museum, Ellicott City Station. This is a must-see event in the Historic District — every year it gets better. Railroad Santa will be on hand opening weekend, Nov. 28 to 30, and the exhibit will be open Wednesday to Sunday through Jan. 25.

The biggest display is the multi-level 360-degree Lego layout, created by the Washington, D.C., Metro area Lrgo Train Club, with interactive lights, motors and sounds. It's fun to try to pick out Main Street landmarks in the display.

Another feature is a new O-scale model train layout, a children's push button layout and an N-scale layout. Go to the website at http://www.BORail.org/EllicottCity-Station or call 410-461-1945 for special hours of operation during the holidays. Don't miss it!
