Three-and-a-half football fields. 63.5 cars. 1,000 total feet. There are lots of ways to measure the length of The Urban Slide, which stretches down city streets across the country to raise excitement and money for good causes, with portions of each event's proceeds go to charity. Covered in a steady stream created by the latest in water recirculating technology, its vinyl surface stretches into the distance for thrill-seekers to slip and slide down during single, triple, or quintuple trips. The entire event takes on the vibe of a celebration, complete with food vendors, attendees decked out in costumes, and seals secretly disguised as humans.
Experienced photo gurus Doug Box and Randy Kerr impart practical photo skills to curious shutterbugs during engaging seminars that have appeared across the States and in eight countries abroad. Doug Box, author of myriad photography-technique books, is one of 13 Kodak mentors and is the Executive Director of the Texas Professional Photographers Association. His co-teacher, Randy Kerr, heads World Photographic, which uses photography as a vehicle for illuminating humanitarian and environmental topics. Both men have been teaching photography classes for years and help amateurs take photos that capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings.
Presented by the Junior League of Montgomery, the 23rd annual Holiday Market's jingle bell call summons a myriad of local merchants and vendors from across the country to set up shop and vend festive holiday presents, home décor, and other seasonal treats. Guests can peruse vibrantly designed wares and women's attire from hue studio inc, or present hard-to-please house elves with an adorable gift from Pamala's Boutique. Feed collegiate rivalries with a copy of the Auburn University Cookbook, penned by Missy Mercer, or feed marital rivalries by picking up The University of Alabama Cookbook, penciled by her husband, Browne Mercer. On Friday, vendors put together a fashion show to highlight trends in seasonal style, and door prizes reward shoppers with magnificent gifts of doorknobs.
Nearly a century ago, the Hippodrome opened as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome closed down in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hearken back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.
