On the third Thursday of each month, Historic Ellicott City plays host to a fun Girls Night Out event. Grab some friends and head out for a fun night of eating, drinking and shopping.

The party starts off at the Wine Bin or Ellicott City Weddings and Events between 5 and 7p.m., where ladies will receive a complimentary wine sampling. Next, collect a free tote bag, which entitles the shopper to 20 percent off one item at participating merchants (some exclusions may apply), then begin an evening journey down eclectic Main St. where ladies will enjoy free snacks, drinks and desserts at each participating shop.

Enter the free raffle to win a pair of tickets to the ghost tour and be sure to check the tote bag for special gifts. What a great night out for a busy mom.

As You Like It Salon and Spa, located in Glenelg, opened for business 35 years ago. Owner Elizabeth Ford has not only kept this popular hair salon in business all these years, but she has also managed to expand the services offered, to include facials, massage, manicures, pedicures, lash extensions, hair extensions, and wigs and hair pieces for cancer patients.

As a way to show appreciation for her success, Elizabeth once a year holds a Cut-A-Thon to raise money for breast cancer research. This year, the Cut-A-Thon is Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stylists will offer $25 haircuts, $12 manicures, $1 a minute seated massage and $35 outer lash extensions. Last year's Cut-A-Thon raised $2,900 for Climb for Hope, a nonprofit organization designed to raise funds for breast cancer research at Johns Hopkins, under the direction of Dr. Leisha Emens.

The spa is at 3270 Roscommon Drive in Glenelg. For additional information regarding the Cut-A-Thon, call 410-442-2077 or visit
