To honor the 130th anniversary of the historic Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens, the Friends of Rawlings Conservatory, in partnership with the City of Baltimore and the Baltimore Department of Parks and Recreation, will host an exclusive cocktail party in the Conservatory on Friday, December 7, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Themed as “A Glistening Winter’s Evening in Baltimore’s Glass Palace,” the event will feature crafted cocktails, festive hors d’oeuvres, and live jazz. The evening also coincides with the Conservatory’s annual holiday poinsettia display, which will showcase a spectacular variety of that signature holiday flower, complete with a grand decorated tree. Tickets to this event are available for a minimum donation of $75.00 per person and can be purchased here – http://www.rawlingsconservatory.org/130th-birthday-party/. Funds raised by the event will help support to support public activities at this historic site.

A friend recently said, “The secret to a happy marriage is lots of jigsaw puzzles.” There’s a bit more to it than that, I imagine, but it is pretty satisfying to have a completed puzzle on the table after meticulously working to find out how all the pieces connect.

Or, as the event description for tonight’s Jigsaw JAM at Windup space dramatically describes it, “bring ORDER to CHAOS.” Yes, we could all use the zen that comes from putting together a jigsaw puzzle in this crazy, messed-up world–especially as the holiday season looms.
