Fest-of-All – The Music!

What would Fest-Of-All be without great music?  This year, back by popular demand, we booked The Real Geniuses to play during our celebration.   This 80’s cover band will make sure everyone hits the dance floor at least once during the evening. 

Fest-of-All 2013 will be
Saturday February 23rd, 7-11 pm at the Baltimore Museum of Industry

The Real Geniuses play favorite, classic songs at many venues in the Baltimore region, and each show produces amazing reviews.  On their website, a local says, “I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the band was … the dance floor was filled the entire night”. And everyone at Fest-of-All agrees, as they requested The Real Geniuses’ return!

Combined with the buffet featuring food from 30 different restaurants, an open bar, and a fashion show, this Fest-of-All will be tons of fun. 

Lace up your dancing shoes and buy your Fest-of-All ticket before we sell out!  Visit our website to purchase your tickets, or call 410-727-4500.

The Bridal Suite: Welcome to Federal Hill!

Federal Hill welcomes a unique new shop to the neighborhood. The Bridal Suite (1126 S. Charles St.) opened its doors on December 1st and is now catering to soon-to-be brides in Baltimore.  The Bridal Suite owner, Roberta Sachs, chose Federal Hill for its “trendy, comfortable atmosphere” as well as its “potential brides-to-be.”
The Bridal Suite is an upscale bridal shop offering new and once worn wedding gowns. They have everything from plain and simple gowns to new and unique bridal apparel.  They even carry a few light pink dresses!  This shop is a brilliant concept, providing brides with their dream wedding dress, at the fraction of their market price.  
If you own a perfectly good, once-wed, wedding gown and don’t want it to collect dust, stop by The Bridal Suite to see if it has consignment potential.  They will accept dresses that are within current styles or could be considered vintage.  The dresses must be in excellent condition in order to be appraised. 
If you’re planning your wedding, or know a friend who is, consider The Bridal Suite as your wedding gown boutique.
