With winter on the way, it's time to pull your heavier fabrics out of storage to air out the trapped sweat from last winter and the must of dead attic bears. Instead of dousing your wool suit in perfume, Febreeze, or deer scent, send it to the cleaners for the fresh scent and superior fit of a newly dry-cleaned suit. With today's Groupon, $25 gets you $50 worth of dry cleaning from Hourglass Dry Cleaning. If you're skeptical, consider the testimony of a man of science, John Hopkins University’s own Professor Philip Warsaw:
Located on the lower level of residential tour de force Silo Point in the Locust Point neighborhood, Privé Salon & Spa is an urban oasis devoted to aesthetics. Chandeliers that look like they belong on the top of a Greek goddess's Christmas tree dangle provocatively from the ceiling, flanked by exposed beams and well-stocked shelves. Owners Johnna Sychuk and Jennifer Beck both trained with legendary mane man Chas before creating their own state-of-the-art palace of pampering. Glance over their salon services card; lady snips average $40–$75, and guy's cuts are $30–$50. Privé also offers coloring services including retouching ($60–$80), full highlights ($90 to upward of $130), and lowlights (starting at $10).
From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Tuesday, February 12, the streets of Fell's Point come alive as crawlers hop from pub to pub, enjoying specials on food and festive drinks such as Absolut masquerade punch and Malibu hurricanes. A commemorative button, which can be picked up at Woody’s Rum Bar starting at 6 p.m. the night of the crawl, unlocks the special prices at each location. Each crawler also receives a map that shows the locations of all 15 participating pubs—including The Greene Turtle, Kooper's Tavern, and The Wharf Rat—ensuring they find each venue without having to spend all their doubloons on a GPS.
The crawl is one of the many events hosted by Fell's Point Main Street, an organization dedicated to revitalizing local commercial and historical areas.
The University of Maryland administers low-cost legal services to the local community through its JustAdvice program. Since its inception, JustAdvice has served more than 1,300 people in a range of legal areas including family, criminal, employment, tax, and social-security law. It holds 30-minute sessions twice weekly, where clients can speak with experienced attorneys to gain a clearer understanding of their circumstances and options for action. Each session typically draws about 20 clients, and the organization charges $10 per session to cover the costs of office supplies, technological resources, equipment, and refreshments. Though JustAdvice cannot provide ongoing legal services to clients, staff attorneys can recommend alternative routes for people to find counsel.
The Hot Dog Kart isn't some small-scale franks and fries affair. Sure, it serves classic beef and turkey dogs with all the trimmings, plus other hot dog cart favorites like Italian and Polish sausages. But it also offers up a wide variety of other enticing grab-and-go eats. Baked potatoes come stuffed with fresh seafood like lobster, crab, or shrimp, while foot-long veal kulbacher bratwursts can sate extra-large hunger pangs or perfectly fill the inside of a large, sausage-shaped pinata. Lobster rolls, salads, and bagels help round out the menu, along with a selection of desserts that includes rum cakes and cheesecake.
