Hello dear friends of mine; hope your last weekend was as fun and adventurous as mine was. I did go to the Arch Social Club event on Pennsylvania and North and it was absolutely fantastic. First as you walk up to the building, it was cleared of any riff-raff hanging around the door or in the area, the décor’ of the lounge was beautifully decorated; the tables and chairs were covered in white and blue and the entertainment was great.
This was the first of their musical series. Keep reading my column, and I will let you know when the next event is coming. My Boo-Boo and I also attended the Big Band Cabaret given by St. James Academy in Ellicott City checking out Phil Butt’s Big Band. It too was very nice; the music took you back to the 40’s the “swing-dancing days.” It was very well attended. And we also had a ball at the WMEL Radio event. This R&B show was off the hook! DJ Mel and WMEL Radio outdid themselves. Two thumbs up! Mel.
I just love the fact that Lexington Market, 400 W. Lexington Street in Baltimore continues to cater to our community. They are having their “4th Annual Trick or Treat” event, 2-4 p.m., Oct. 27, which will be a great day to support our community’s children and have a little fun too. This year they will have their and my good friend, magician, John Carrington, who is also with Heaven 600 and been a supporter and performer of the market for many years. This event will be in the Lexington rooms so they can utilize the space for three different craft stations, a slime making demonstration, and a smoothie demonstration; magic show, balloon characters, create a mask and candy give-aways throughout the market.
Lexington Market also offers “Artistries Market featuring local artists offering Afrocentric Items, fine jewelry, accessories and home décor every first Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. No need to call them, just go and take the children and grandchildren and have fun.
Before I leave you, my “Boo-Boo” and I want to give our condolences to our friend and journalist sister, Valerie Fraling for the loss of her mother. I attended the viewing and saw so many people from all walks of life sharing their love for the well-known columnist.
Well, my dear followers and friends, I am out of space and time, but remember if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at [email protected] UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
