Hey guys. Happy holidays and New Year weekend! I hope everyone had a happy, healthy and fun holiday! I can’t believe we’re officially in 2018. It’s so crazy to me. I feel like we were on a really calm, fun ride, like a kid’s train ride at an amusement park, nice and slow, easy going...

As I mentioned in my previous post Federal Hill’s humble and historic indoor market – Cross Street Market – is experiencing a long-overdo revitalization.

A couple of months ago, I received the single least anticipated or welcome letter in the mail. You know the one. The one no one wants but everyone gets. The dreaded jury summons.

Welcome to Federal Hill, Insomnia Cookies!
