After 37 years in business, authorized AT&T retailer, Communications Electronics knows a thing about outfitting its customers with the latest in mobile phone and wireless equipment, accessories, and new smart phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, LG G3, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. The company traces its history in the metro region back 37 years, when most homes relied on landlines, and cell phones were heavy bricks likely to start dangerous fires. Through it all, the company rode the wave of up-and-coming technology, earning a loyal and expansive customer base through friendly, knowledgeable service, and frequent package upgrades. Today, the store sells the space-age Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 augmented with accessories such as armor-clad Defender cases, dual-port chargers, and Bluetooth headsets.
Carved from the remnants of a late-1800s carriage building and corncrib, the Woodhall Wine Cellars tasting room serves samples of small-batch wines surrounded by a warm, rustic ambiance befitting its barrel- and bottle-aged wares. The boutique family winery has grown its menu of five varieties in the mid-1980s to its current library of more than a dozen wines, including whites, reds, and dessert styles that are made entirely from Maryland-grown grapes. Each wine goes through an extensive tasting process, creating a hierarchy of reserve wines and varietal and non-varietal blends, some of which have gone on to garner awards and mark significant anniversaries.
