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.
Shopping local during the holiday season is always a great idea. Our first stop on our local shopping excursion is Wyndhurst Station. Originally serving as a station house for the former Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad, Wyndhurst Station, located in Roland Park, was redeveloped and converted into a charming boutique retail building. The businesses and services have become staples for neighborhood residents and the broader community alike. With free parking and a leafy, country-like setting, it provides for a special and unique Baltimore City shopping or work experience.
