  It’s week two of the Pursuit of it All month long spoil-our-readers-into-submission spree. Last week we gave away a Downtown Frederick Gift Card and this week we’re setting the stage for major relaxation thanks to a little something we received from Whiskey Bottom Candle Company. We’re talking shut the door, dim the lights, bubble bath, wine and candles, relaxation. You’re welcome. This week we’re giving away Whiskey Bottom Candles! The Pursuit gals are gaga over the Whiskey Bottom Candle Company hand-poured soy candles. Made from recycled wine and whiskey bottles (collected from local businesses), they’re environmentally friendly, uber-unique and truly delicious. Like,…

The Scarlet Letter Society Visits Frederick, MD!

  Did you know that Downtown Frederick is the setting for a steamy 50 Shades-ish type of novel? Surprised? So was I. The book in question is called The Scarlet Letter Society and it centers around three women who live in Keytown (ahem) and gather together each month to discuss love, life, literature and their infidelities. Right?! The author of that naughty little ditty is Mary McCarthy, former Fredericktonian, lifelong writer/editor, professional blogger and friend to some of the Pursuit gals. Mary visited Frederick on her book tour and held a book signing at Curious Iguana, this girl’s favorite independent bookstore in the…

We're giving away a Downtown Frederick Gift Card on May 28, 2015!

  Who could use a little spoiling? Oh please. We see you over there. We know you’re over-worked, under-appreciated and could use a new pair of shoes, a night out on the town, and a decent margarita for Pete’s sake. We’re here for you. Like, really. That’s why every Saturday for the next month, we’ll be hosting giveaways of fantastic items for the sole purpose of spoiling our readers into submission. This week we’re giving away a $55.00 Downtown Frederick gift card! Because we’re shoppers! And eaters! And general lovers-of-all-things-cultured. So what better way to celebrate the town we live in, than to…

The Kitchen Studio in Frederick: We laughed. We chopped. We ate some damn good food. But most importantly, we're coming back.

  Lemme ask you a question: Do you do date nights with your spouse or significant other? My husband and I have recently begun making a concerted effort to really set aside time to invest in unique experiences with each other. Because honestly, we’ve been together forever and HAVING CHILDREN IS EXHAUSTING. If we don’t create a plan for our time together, we’ll end up in a incoherent-zombie-like state until the kids turn 34. I’m not exaggerating. In the spirit of this effort, my husband and I have done all sorts of things together lately: Escape Rooms, dinner, drunken book store scavenger hunts (What? That’s not a thing…

  Welcome to Girl Crush, our way of spotlighting some of the most amazing women in and around the community. These ladies have something special. They enlighten us, inspire us and (we admit) give us cause for envy.   The first gal we’re crushing on is Michelle Kershner. She’s sassy, spunky and works to promote Frederick in the City of Frederick’s Department of Economic Development. (So fancy!) Okay, girl. Give our readers a snapshot of your life… I am a Frederick County native and grew up in Walkersville. I attended McDaniel College and earned a degree in history. However, all of my practical experience was…
