Though people no longer have to cross continental boundaries to sample exotic flavors, the average spice rack still tends to lack diversity. At the Spice & Tea Exchange of Annapolis, a staff of flavor-seeking specialists stocks gourmet seasonings and spices, cooking herbs, sugars, and sea salts to expand their customers' cooking horizons. In addition to fresh herbs and flavorings, the team designs signature seasoning powders that infuse dishes with medleys of chili, savory hints of cheese, or the essence of smoke. They also carry an assortment of gourmet teas, which are good to keep around the house in case a local king decides to stop by.
Since 2000, the instructors at Dance Studio Lioudmila have helped beginner, advanced, and competitive dancers hone their skills during group and private lessons.

Wall-mounted mirrors make it easier to mimic the instructor’s moves and keep the dancer behind you from giving you bunny ears.
