Dear Readers: This week, the week between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, Baltimore Fishbowl will be publishing in a reduced capacity. We will be sharing some sponsored content and specially prepared posts with our favorite and most interesting stories of the past year, along with top headlines.

We hope you are able to enjoy some relaxing and refreshing time doing what you love, with people you love. We encourage you to check back throughout the week, and we will return in our full capacity on Tuesday Jan. 3. Happy holidays from your friends at Baltimore Fishbowl!
