Baltimore County's history stretches back nearly four centuries, and tracing and chronicling some 350 years of records, artifacts, and photographs is no small task. Just ask the Historical Society of Baltimore County, which houses thousands of historical pieces, including maps, photos, and books in an 1870s almshouse turned research center. The library houses hundreds of maps and primary sources from centuries past.

Beneath a protective sheet of plastic wrap, newly formed bowls and vases in all shapes wait their turn to enter the fiery kiln that will turn them into finished pieces of pottery. These pieces are the end results of The New Phoenix Pottery's classes, which take place six days a week and allow beginning and advanced students to mold reclaimed clay either by hand or atop a spinning pottery wheel. Both adults and children can attend, providing a multigenerational outlet for artistic dreams or a healthy release of pent-up anger at Clay Aiken.

As the official history explains it, Jedediah Bumphus founded Wits End Saloon in 1867 "with a dream to serve cheap whiskey and freshly made raccoon sandwiches to the locals." If that sets your stomach growling, prepare for disappointment?it's completely untrue.

By its own admission, Wits End's history?including a bit about Jedediah's dual enlistment in both the Union and Confederate armies?is "fantastic and completely fabricated." The comedic touch makes sense for a saloon located at Magooby's Joke House, where local comedians take the stage every Tuesday, filling out a calendar of live events that also includes live music and trivia nights. While you won't find raccoon on the menu, there are plenty of classic bar bites including veggie quesadillas, Creole-style catfish tacos, and burgers made from local grass-fed beef. As for the whiskey, that might be the only part of Wits End's history that's actually true, as bartenders pour shot of more than 50 varieties, along with craft beers and handmade cocktails.

At the Maryland Junior Hunt Cup, pint sized jockeys and their saddled sidekicks gather each year to compete in 11 races at Shawan Downs. The races cover a full spread of equine excellence, including lead line trot, pony flat, and junior steeplechase races, and the lineup of leg-powered performances promises to provide riders young and old with inspirational strides, horseletic feats, and photo finishes unseen since the days when jockeys worked the one-hour camera shop. Those filled with equine jealousy can test their own hooves by entering the Peoplechase or the Stick Pony Race.
