A Roundup of Baltimore’s Best Valentine Cards

1

Gone are the days when we made valentines in school out of paper plates and doilies, relishing guilt-free in the seemingly unlimited craft supplies, and handing out democratically the finished product to everyone we knew. Sure we might celebrate with friends, or secretly hope for a homemade card from the kids, but let’s face it: We are adults now, by golly, and we usually have to narrow it down to one special valentine these days. We all know to book the reservations in advance, and pick up the flowers, but who has time to make a card? Still, nothing says “I love you” quite like that timeless tradition of writing those exact words.

World Series of Poker
“A Waterloo,” by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge.

If you’ve been itching to participate in the World Series of Poker since amateur player Chris Moneymaker won the Main Event on ESPN in 2003 and got everyone age 18-34 talking about No-Limit Texas Hold ’em (which as far as I can tell is the only poker game with an entry in The Associated Press Stylebook), you’re out of excuses. A World Series of Poker Circuit is coming to Baltimore on Thursday.

It’s Back: Simply Noted Re-Opens in Ruxton Station

Simply Noted

After a two-year hiatus, stationery and gift boutique Simply Noted, a past winner of the coveted Best of Baltimore title, has re-opened at Ruxton Station.

Simply Noted had a successful seven-year run at Belvedere Square until owner, Melissa Taylor, decided to close the shop in 2010.  Late last year, however, she received an offer she couldn’t refuse: The landlord of Ruxton Station approached her with the idea to re-open in the space vacated by Jewels, which moved across the street.  The idea became a reality after discussing the opportunity with Louise Wright, a seasoned retailer, and the two soon came to realize they could take this on together.

Louise brings quite a resume to the partnership with extensive retail experience including positions with Saks Fifth Avenue and Anne Klein and, most recently, the locally-owned Ruth Shaw in the Village of Cross Keys.

Gore Dean Baltimore Behavior Card

Mae West famously said, “When I’m good, I’m very, very good, but when I’m bad I’m better.” That attitude (along with her looks and Hollywood star status) surely helped keep her in the good graces of hostesses, dates, and others who  likely cleaned up behind her after a particularly good time. Many of us, however, could use a little something extra when begging pardon for, shall we say, less than perfect behavior.  What to do? Flowers? A homemade pie? A replacement lampshade?
