Exotic Sweets Downtown

Frederick is sweet and strange! What a delectable combo!

We ran up & down Market Street and tried to find all of the exotic sweets, here’s what we found:

 

The Candy Kitchen

Chicken Feet Gummies

Popular with children and chicken-foot enthusiasts alike

Habanera Chocolates

For those who find heat is appropriate with all dishes

Sriracha Jelly Beans

Look an awful lot like cherry jelly beans…are we right?

 

Zoe’s Chocolates

Sesame Tahini Crunch Truffles

Yes, like in hummus. Yes, eat some.

Gold Chocolate Bars

For those of us that are fancy on the inside.

Cakes to Die For

Maple Bacon Biscuits

Actually…sounds wonderful and perfect. Can we have like…30?

 The Pop Shop

Grass Soda

Nothing like the flavor of a freshly mowed lawn.

Buffalo Wing & Ranch Dressing Soda

A classic pairing, fit for a Queen.

The Perfect Truffle

Old Bay Caramels

MARYLAND.CLASSIC. Actually, nothing weird here.

Hibiscus Truffles

Flower + Chocolate = Yes please!

 

Frederick Fudge Co.

Watermelon Fudge

A yummy deviation from your traditional chocolate fudge.

Playdough Ice Cream

Freakin’ delicious.

 

Em(paw)ees: White Collar, Blue Collar, Dog Collar.

Has your life led you to the tragic, unfortunate circumstance of NOT having a dog? Not to worry, these businesses give an invaluable gift–the gift of pettins, snugglins and cuddles with adorable canine employees.

Frederick Supply

Tell me a little about yourself:

My name is Mickey and I was rescued/adopted 2 years ago and my dad asked if I wanted to go to work. I did so well that he kept asking me to come. I rarely miss a day of work unless it rains, its cold, or I find something better to do. I am the official greeter, closer and  safety mascot. I take issue with mascot and prefer to call myself a model. I have favorite customers and I am a little embarrassed by that. I am the brains of the operation and people frequently stop in and ask for me, as they should.

Who is your role model?

Sgt Daphne Jean-Felix (pictured) of the US Army (Fort  Detrick). I respect all military and first responders and I love when they come in. Sgt Jean-Felix and I are friends at work, on Facebook and on Instagram. I send him messages telling him I am stronger and faster than him – we haven’t had that contest yet.

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I am the CEO – Chief Eating Officer

Greeting, modeling, eating, napping, repeat!

My ridiculous good looks.

My professional courtesy at all times.

I close the sale!

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

Walking away from a coworkers unattended lunch (I have never walked away, I can’t resist!).

The cute beagle next door.

Not being more famous, but this will help!

My height.

 

Viniferous

Tell me a little about yourself:

My name is Riley, I live at Viniferous.

Who is your role model?

The little rascals dog “Petey”

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I am a really good greeter and mingler

What is your greatest professional weakness?

I love treats! Sometimes I can get cranky when on a leash, and I can be impatient with smaller dogs.

 

Pulse Publishing

Tell me a little about yourself:

I’m an 8 month old yorkie named Miss. ZuZu Petals. I’m a professional people watcher and employee relations manager. You can often say hi to me in the window of 12 South Market.

Who is your role model?

Charity because she is always outside the Federated Charity building, even in the rain! What dedication! ( but she never seems excited to see me)

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I can remain calm under pressure and I never bark at the UPS guy. I have a really long tongue so I can lick my coworker’s faces!

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

I’m flawless.

 

Dragon Distillery


Gunny (Bulldog)

Tell me a little about yourself:

I’m a four-year old English Bulldog who is responsible for overseeing our distillery tours – and keeping the futon warm. I really enjoy meeting people.

Who is your role model?

I’m a bulldog. We don’t have role models, We ARE role models.

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I’d have to say, my amazingly good looks and my award winning smile.

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

Probably my lack of a tail (I lost it when I was young). So it’s harder for people to see how happy I am to see them.

Thor (Morkie)

Tell me a little about yourself:

I’m an eight-year old Morkie. I’m basically in charge of everything here at the distillery – but my official title is Tasting Room Manager.  I generally stay behind the bar ensuring the staff is friendly and responsive to our guests needs. I can to this from my perch on the chair behind the bar.

Who is your role model?

I’d guess Lassie – if he was smaller, smarter, faster, and cuter.

What are your greatest professional strengths?

Oh – that’s easy – my hypo-allergenic coat

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

I’d have to say it’s the fact that I’m too cute – sometimes I’m not taken seriously.

 

Hunting Creek

Tell me a little about yourself:

My name is Maizey, I’m a tri color English setter, specifically a Llewellyn Setter, I was born deaf and just turned 4 yrs old. I come to work at Hunting Creek Outfitters nearly every day.  I’m excited to meet new people, especially kids and have some favorite dog friends who visit me too. I love to run, eat and sleep, not necessarily in that order.

Who is your role model?

I would say my role model would be any professional competitive eater.  The thought that I could be rewarded for eating crazy amounts of food seems like a dream come true. In the meantime, I have mapped out the best people and places to give me treats.

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I feel like I’m an ambassador to Downtown Frederick, I’m very good at greeting people and having my picture taken with them.  There is no doubt my good looks attract humans to my store but my skills go well behind just being beautiful.   I posses a quality that brings a calmness to those I meet. If someone is having a bad day they can stop in and see me and it helps them feel better. I’m also good at remaining perfectly still, being a throw rug, a pillow for kids, blocking the doorway and holding the sidewalk down from moving.

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

I sneak out of the store when Murray or Brian are not looking and go down the street to the Muse and Molly’s Meanderings for treats. I’m pretty nosey and have a tendency to stick my nose in people’s bags, purses and strollers and have even snatched a cookie or two out of an unsuspecting kid’s hand.  Murray tells me I’m good at getting people in the store but need to work on my closing the sale skills.

 

Frederick Coin Exchange

Tell me a little about yourself:

I’m Charlie and I love Frederick! Tim, my walker, and I have a great time exploring Frederick every day…..visiting friends, checking in with the nice people at the South Market Street Sandwich Store, touring the canal, Baker Park, saying hi to the ducks….there is a lot to do in Frederick!

Who is your role model?

The great people who thought to put the bowls of fresh water outside of businesses because it can get very hot in the summer when you are wearing a fur coat. Also, the businesses that have biscuits and treats available as sometimes I need a little energy boost along the way. They really thought of everything.

What are your greatest professional strengths?

I am pawsitively proud that I have been working since I was 4 months old and have never missed a day of work!  I spent 6 happy years at the coin shop on Market Street and enjoying people watching as I hung out on my couch by the window. It took me a while to get used to the shop’s new location on East Street in Everedy Square but there is a lot more room and lots of people watching.  The shop’s customers are the best……….I can always count on them for needed hug, pets,or treats!  My colleagues treat me as an equal and always include me in celebrations which I really appreciate. I’m sure they have something planned for my 8th birthday on July 4th (hint, hint)

What are your greatest professional weaknesses?

My greatest professional weakness is that I don’t have a thumb and I don’t have a pocket.  It seems to me that having a thumb and a pocket  (with a cell phone in it)  would make me a lot more independent and a whole new world could open up……..opening cabinets and doors, calling friends, ordering pizza, finding out what the other shop dogs are up to,…..the possibilities are endless!

*Remember, always ask to pet a dog before you get your snuggle on*

6.5 Perfectly Legit Reasons to be Late in Frederick

1. You’re stuck behind a tractor

You think “Aww yeah, gonna get to work on time.”

That huge line of cars behind that tractor says “Maybe tomorrow.”

 

2. You forgot that Rita’s Italian Ice just opened for the season

Logical Thought: “It’s a weekend, there shouldn’t be any traffic”

Frederick Traffic Reality: It’s the first weekend in March. We hope you brought a book 😉

 

3. The Great Frederick Fair is in town

“I’ll be there in 15 minutes”

*drives near fairgrounds*

“I’ll be there in 2 hours”

 

4. There’s another charity 5K/running festival

There’s nothing like spending Saturday morning behind a blockade. We LOVE charity runs, but, we have brunch plans…so….could you guys hurry up?

 

5. You just had to stop and wave at the Hot Air Balloon

Or…you know… change the route entirely to see if you can watch it land.

 

6. There’s a cow…in the road

Yep. Nothin’ like a good ol’ fashioned cow in the road.

 

6.5 Every road that leads anywhere is under construction

“Didn’t you read all of the signs that were up for like…an entire year before the project started?”

“Nope.”

Booze Cruise for St. Patrick’s Day in Frederick

Have you noticed the influx of breweries around Frederick County? We sure have!  This St. Patrick’s Day season, you can taste all of the delicious brews that Frederick has to offer while riding in style with A Touch of Class Limousines! The tours leave from the Residence Inn by Marriott on the dates/times below:

Friday, March 17, 2017,  5:45 pm – 10:15 pm

Saturday, March 18, 2017, 11:45 am – 5:30 pm

You’ll get to tour some amazing breweries and maybe get a growler or two! Here’s a little bit of info about them:

Olde Mother Brewing Company – This brewing company on E. Patrick Street, opened the Summer of 2015 and has a wide variety of brews from IPAs to Sours on draft. Started by business partners Nick and Keith, they offer “typical craft beers that will suit your palette” but also offers a heads-up for “a few twists and unique flavor profiles.”

Flying Dog Brewery – The most regionally recognized brands of beer from Frederick, MD is the eccentric Flying Dog brand! Started in 1990 by George Stranahan and Richard McIntyre, there is a long and complicated story behind the name. Now they have a wide variety of steadfast brews, all with…let’s just say…creative names. Their seasonal brews are also popular, with the most iconic being their Dead Rise Old Bay Ale for summer.

Smoketown Brewing Station – Homed in Brunswick’s former fire station, this brewery offers a full spectrum of beers, named after Frederick County’s historical sites and stories! You can bring your own food from the restaurants around town and take a seat on their patio in warmer months or the tasting room. From there, all you need to do is order a flight to sample their brews and relax.

Red Shedman Farm Brewery –  (Saturday Only!) This brewery out in Mount Airy, Maryland has a great mix of beers, from their Honey Bourbon Rye Ale to their “Lunatic Fringe,” an IPA infused with habanero peppers. The brewmaster, Victor Aellen, trained in Beer City USA (Grand Rapids, Mi.) with two of the best brewers around. After leaving his mark in Michigan, he partnered with Linganore Winecellars, a match splendidly made.

Scythian at the Weinberg

 

On Friday, March 10th 2017 at 8 p.m., Scythian, a band with “rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling” will be flaunting their “thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling” on the Weinberg stage just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

This band is riddled with classically trained musicians, ranging from the fiddle and mandolin to the accordion and banjolin. Most of the members have been playing since they were children, but all of them absolutely love what they play.

Alexander Fedoryka, who plays the Fiddle, Mandolin, Bass, and sings, studied in Japan at the prestigious Suzuki School of Music.

Danylo Fedoryka, who plays guitar, accordion, and also sings, was originally trained as a classical pianist and played at the Kennedy Center and Wolf Trap. He switched to guitar in order to join his brother, Alexander, playing Celtic Music.

Larissa Fedoryka started playing cello at 3-years-old and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in classical performance at the University of California-Santa Barbara and not only tours with Scythian, but Latin recording star Gloria Trevi as well.

Nolan Ladewski also has a long list of musical instruments under his belt, playing the flute, whistles, banjolin, guitar, and vocals. He started by playing the tin whistle at 6 years-old and started touring at age 12.  

Tim Hepburn, who plays the drums and other percussion, began playing at the age of 5. Although “Tim can bring the thunder on the [drum] kit, his biggest influence on the drums comes from the finesse of the jazz world.”

This spectacular quintet is sure to get you up out of your chair and jumping around as they’ve been doing with audiences all over for 10 years. Don’t believe us? Check out their youtube channel for some sweet tunes!

You can purchase your tickets online, by calling 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 W. Patrick St. in Downtown Frederick. Be sure to show your school ID or military ID for a discount! Discounts are also available for children and seniors.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door.

 

Joint Art Exhibit on the Creek

The C.Burr Artz Library and the Delaplaine are putting their heads together and joint-hosting a wonderful exhibit, “Frederick County Glimpses Past and Present,” that will celebrate the transformation of Frederick City from the 19th century through present day.

Photos of the city’s “past,” from the 19th century and early-to-mid 20th century, will be featured in the Library. These photographs from the FCPL archival collection will be on display in the main entrance way and in the Maryland Room on the second floor.

The Delaplaine will feature a variety of artworks by local artists, including paintings by Deborah Lovelace Richardson and Paula Rubin Wexler, photography by Brady Wilks and Harriet Wise, and sculpture by Homer Yost.

The two facilities are located along Carroll Creek Park in downtown Frederick, the Delaplaine at 40 South Carroll Street and the C. Burr Artz Library at 110 East Patrick Street. Diane Sibbison, the Exhibitions Manager at the Delaplaine, says,  “with both sites only about one block apart along Carroll Creek, we hope that people will visit both portions of the exhibit… It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring local art and local history together, and, as Mary [Mannix, the Maryland Room Manager,] said, raise the visibility of both.”

The public is invited to opening receptions at both locations on Saturday, January 7 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. This exhibit will be open at both locations through February 19th and will be available for viewing daily.

For more information, contact the Delaplaine at 301-698-0656 or www.delaplaine.org.

Super Sleuths at Surelocked In

surelocked-message Outside of the building in downtown. We knew we were in trouble!

Over the weekend, we found ourselves on Santa’s naughty list! The dynamic Father and Son Duo, Mike and Chris Sparks of Surelocked In Escape Games, reassured us that there was a bona-fide way of evading coal in our stockings this year: just solve a series of interlocking puzzles to find where Santa hid his list and sneakily move our names over. Santa would be back in an hour, so we only had that long to solve our way out of this Holiday Escape Room in Downtown Frederick. Needless to say, this was a challenge that we gladly accepted.

surelocked-mikesurelocked-chrisMike and Chris Sparks of Surelocked In Escape Games

When we arrived at Surelocked In, we were enthusiastically greeted by Santa’s helper elves (AKA Mike and Chris) and both helped explain the rules. I’ll spare some details, but the express version of the Escape Room rules are: you get 60 minutes to solve a huge puzzle, everything you need is in the room, you get three hints if you get stuck, and NO PHONES! For us Millennials, that last rule seemed particularly daunting; however, separation anxiety aside, the rules sounded simple enough and we all clamored into the room. At that point, it was a race against the Santa timer in the upper corner of the room.

surelocked-nathan-bootssurelocked-nathan-readingsurelocked-christmas-treeNathan Elbert with FiND iT FREDERiCK and the festive decorations in the Naughty or Nice Escape Room

What happens in the room is classified, but I will tell you that, at least for us, it involved a lot of playful yelling, running in circles, and a ton of fun! Unfortunately, we also ran out of time and are thus resigned to Santa’s Naughty List forever, but as far as we’re concerned, we’re glad to get the coal! As puzzle lovers, we loved the experience, and as technologically dependent Millennials, we didn’t even miss our smartphones.

surelocked-piratesurelocked-groom    An exclusive puzzle-free sneak peek of Ship Outta Luck and Escape Groom

Even though we couldn’t quite get out, Mike and Chris were very gracious and offered us an exclusive sneak peek of their other two rooms, the brand new “Ship Outta Luck” that is pirate-ship themed, and the seemingly impossible “Escape Groom” that Chris repeatedly told us has a zero percent solve rate.

It goes without saying, but, we are excited to go back and see them again! (We might have already made reservations for Ship Outta Luck…) Not only is this an affordable activity for birthday parties, corporate events, or just a great night out, it is a memorable one for sure. Once you try one of these escape rooms, we promise you, you’ll be eager to get locked up again!

This family-owned business takes reservations on their website and are conveniently located in Downtown Frederick next to Volt at 220 N. Market Street.

The Frederick Symphony Orchestra (FSO) is excited to announce a TRUE Summer treat for music and movie goers. This stunning group of musicians will be performing three concerts in July and August throughout Frederick County for free! The performances will showcase the talents of the local orchestra with silent film accompanist- Ben Model.

I’m excited to bring the talent of the FSO into the wider community,” said FSO Camerata conductor, Tyler Austin. “I’m thrilled that [we’re] getting more music downtown. It will make for a relaxing, enjoyable summer evening.”

The FSO’s first concert, Buster and Charlie at the Park, will be on July 20 at 8 p.m. in the Baker Park Bandshell in Downtown Frederick. The performance will include three silent films, “The Immigrant,” “Cops,” and “Pedigreedy,” that will be accompanied by Model’s original compositions.

Projects such as the silent film score concert present completely different challenges from our usual concert programs,” said Austin. “The musicians have to be particularly flexible to adjust tempos and styles to fit each film.”
