Hello everyone! Okay, today, I need your prayers. There is a lot going on with your “Rambling Rose” this week. By the time you read this column, I will have buried my brother William. He was such a beautiful person, very kind-hearted and giving person and I will miss him. Last week, I receive a call from my son, Keith, my first born, who lives in Philadelphia, Pa., and he was a cancer survivor for two years, but he informed me that his cancer is back and he is in stage 4. So you see; prayers, other than my own are needed. Thanks so much. Now let’s look at brighter things to come.
The Myra Grand Chapter’s Annual Spring Activity Committee presents “Hattitude!,” an afternoon tea and hat show on April 6 from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. You can wear your fancy hat and join in the parade of stars to win a prize. It will be held at Willard W. Allen Masonic Temple’s Melvin M. Thorpe Fellowship Hall, 1307 Eutaw Place.
You can “Sing-A-Long to the Oldies” every Wednesday, 6-11 p.m. with DJ “Sugar” Chris at the Corinthian Restaurant & Lounge, 7107 Windsor Mill Road. This is really a nice place, folks. The food is delicious; they have good drinks, then you can grab the mike and sing your favorite oldies. Sounds like fun to me.
Maceo’s Restaurant and Lounge is another place that rates from great to dynamite for grown people to hang out every Thursday with live entertainment beginning at 7 p.m. There is never a cover charge and the kitchen, with Dante and Ian, the owners, doing the cooking is great, too. I can guarantee you will enjoy the food. Maceo’s is located on Walbrook Avenue and Monroe Street.
I am going to tell you about a club, I know its been around about 35 years. I am talking about the Odyssey Lounge, 1323 Presstman Street. They are still one of the hottest neighborhood clubs in Baltimore with the owner “Chilly” still at the helm. The popular Alma Tucker still hangs out there serving her delicious soul food.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you are a lover of fresh vegetables and meats, as I am, then you would want to be at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar, which will open on April 7 at 7 a.m. and every Sunday after that until they sell out, which usually be around 12 noon. Honey child, I could go on and on about this market, but I won’t…well, maybe a little bit. First of all, there will be live entertainment while you walk around and shop. As the y reopen this season, they are prepared to really show off. They will have vendors of fresh and organic fruits and vegetables, meats such as poultry, beef, lamb, pork and fish; cheeses, eggs, nuts, spices, preserves, all kinds of colorful flowers and plants from regional farmers. To top it off they have all kinds of cooked foods including sandwiches, wraps, smoked fish, pizza, salads, sausages, soups, turkey and lamb burgers; they will have all kinds of arts and crafts including furniture and housewares, yard and garden furnishings, clothes, jewelry, paintings and much more. The Baltimore Farmers’ Market is located on Saratoga Street between Holliday and Gay Streets, underneath the Jones Falls Expressway. I will see you there!
Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church is hosting a Women’s Day Prayer Breakfast on April 13, 9 a.m. The speaker will be Evangelist Dr. Jennifer Gaither and on April 14 at 10 a.m. there will be Women’s Day Celebration. The speaker is Rev. Tammy Caesar, associate pastor of the Church on the Rock, in Millersville, Md. Both events will be held at the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, 2110 Madison Avenue, where Rev. John M. Thomas is the pastor. For more information, call 410-3234981 or 410-358-3360.
