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…

Living Life In The Front Row!

  At this very moment, which row are YOU living your life in? Let me clarify as you ponder. You may recognize the photo below. It’s been circling around Facebook for eons. The caption reads: “How Do you live  your life? Are you in the first row or the third?” I’m such a fan of this pic. Indulge me for a moment and take a long look at it. Clearly no one’s partying in the third row. Which begs the question: In the grand scheme of life, where would you say you currently sit? Or better yet, where would you like to sit?…

  On my most recent visit to Washington DC, I paid to spend an evening with five other people locked in a room under surveillance. No, it was not part of some crazy mid-life crisis scenario. (Mind out of the gutter, folks.) It was Escape Room DC. You. Must. Try. This. It is like nothing you’ve ever done before. Escape Room DC is the latest in a growing trend of places around the globe locking up civilians and forcing them to figure our how to escape their rooms. In a nutshell, these are fully-immersive live games in which small groups of people are given a series…
