Calling all Baltimore Bloggers…

Please join us for The Hard Stuff, Chef Arturo Paz’s next blogger dinner on Thursday, April 1 at 6 p.m. at Phillips Seafood Restaurant in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Lobsters, clams, mussels, oysters and crabs are just a few of the dishes you’ll get to savor. And Chef Paz will be available to discuss the details of selecting the best seafood, storing it and preparing it. And while it’s often not polite to be tapping on your Blackberry while eating, on this occasion it’s welcome. We just recommend that you swallow before pushing “send”.

So, if you’re interested in joining in on the fun, just RSVP to or call 215.731.2000 x206 as space is limited and reservations will be accepted on a first come basis.

A gem of a house for sale!

A gem of a house for sale on one of the best streets in Philadelphia

It’s not often we promote a house for sale on this blog. But our dear friends just put this fabulous house on the market. And we wanted to pass the word along to you. The house is located at 264 S. Van Pelt Street, between Locust and Spruce, one of the most charming streets in Philadelphia. In fact, if you take a walk down the street right now, the cherry blossoms should be in bloom, marking the first sign of spring. But that’s just one of the things we love about this spectacular, extra-wide, four story carriage house w/wonderful light and city views.

This home beautifully combines the highest level of historic and contemporary design. And it’s in impeccable condition. It features a two CAR GARAGE and the most up-do-date gourmet kitchen with Viking Stove and Refridgerator, an ideal home for entertaining guests or enjoying a night in.

This six bedroom, three and a half bathroom home also has a deck and garden space.  We invite you to check it out at
