There are a variety of couples packages to choose from, and every package includes a catered lunch for two. (Couples treatments available exclusively at Abingdon location.)

Attention all lovers of cupcakes, pastries, and epic battles: Flavor Cupcakery has yet another feather in their spun-sugar cap. This past week, Flavor trounced the competition in Fox45’s Cupcake Battle. We’re not sure who makes these things official, or how one gets appointed to the high court of buttercream evaluators, but it certainly seems clear that whatever honors one can bestow upon a cupcake (or its creator) are well deserved by Flavor and its owner Shelley Stannard.
You may never have had a hankering for a Chocolate Chipotle Stout, but you’ll soon have the opportunity to try it. The DuClaw Brewing Company, of Bel Air, has chosen just such a beer as the winner of its second annual H.E.R.O. Homebrew Contest, which means that it will be on tap at DuClaw restaurants in Bel Air, Bowie, and Arundel Mills and sold in kegs and 22-ounce bottles this fall. And given that it beat out 54 other craft beer recipes, it should be worthy of your attention.
The beer, created by Vincent and Suzanne Powers of Nottingham, is described by DuClaw as a “silky-bodied stout boasting a spicy chipotle pepper bite perfectly balanced by smooth, sweet chocolate.”
But the other half of the H.E.R.O. contest has yet to be determined. One hundred percent of the profits of the Chocolate Chipotle Stout will go to charity. From now until June 30, 2012, DuClaw is accepting suggestions. Email your organization or individual’s story to [email protected]
