University of Baltimore MFA student Ellen Hartley found her truest love affair in a most unexpected way — through an equally emotional loss.

It began with a phone call.

Ellen, I’ve got dreadful news.  Helen died yesterday.  It was Myra, the sister of my best friend from music camp 40 years earlier.  I didn’t even know she’d been sick; over the years we’d lost touch.  I knew only that she lived on Long Island and had four children.  I was shocked and angry I hadn’t gotten to say goodbye.

A Gimmick You Can Sink Your Teeth Into: “Chips and Salsa” to Wed at Highlandtown Farmers’ Market


Move over Will and Kate, the wedding of the century is happening in Baltimore! Tonight, Thursday, September 13, the Highlandtown Farmers’ Market will host the “marriage” of chips and salsa as vendors I Got Salsa and Frank’s Gourmet Chips tie the knot. Stop by the market at Eastern Avenue and Conkling Street at 6:30 p.m. to bear witness to this perfect union, complete with formal wedding attire, bridal parties and a special guest officiant.

I Got Salsa will walk down the “aisle” of the market wearing a gown from Stella’s Bridal & Fashions on the Avenue as Frank’s Gourmet Chips waits at the end in a tuxedo from Horton’s House of Tuxedos. Following the ceremony, musical guest Artherius will rock the reception. Guests will be treated to special deals on — you guessed it — chips and salsa.

The happy couple is registered at the Highlandtown Farmers’ Market.
