Our client Friends Records has been busy releasing new albums and we’ve been busy releasing their news. Check out these stories about Friends’ expansion and their most recent release by Baltimore-based duo Peals.
(By the way, City Paper named Friends Records “Best Label” in last week’s Best of Baltimore issue)

We’re going to have a busy Fall season – and its already started.
We are looking to bolster our team for the next few months with an experienced public relations pro – someone who knows how to work with our clients to find the unique story angle, write what’s necessary in order to share it succinctly and compellingly with the media, and then get the placement.
This is a temporary position, probably 3-5 months (based on what works best for the right candidate). We’re pretty flexible about hours and where you work. (The only thing we are not too flexible about is experience – we will only be looking at candidates who have proven success securing media coverage.)
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, let us know. Resumes can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. (No phone calls, please)
(If you are looking for a full-time PR position focusing on media relations, send us your resume anyway. You never know what might come up.)

That was the headline of the Washington Post review (yesterday in print, online here) of La Cuchara.
Last week, the restaurant’s sommelier was featured in a Baltimore Business Journal story titled “How I created an award-winning wine program at La Cuchara.”
Not a bad start to the work week and the Fall season.

Nonprofits run by smart, passionate people and doing important, meaningful work have a big impact. And there’s nothing a like good gala to remind you just how big… or to remind us how much we like helping them. We enjoyed promoting these great client events in the last 10 days:
The Edward A. Myerberg Center celebrated its 40th anniversary and honored its founding president at its annual spring event. The evening raised funds to support programs for older adults, including 8,000 meals served each year to low-income seniors.
At the Young Audiences “Taste the Arts” gala, 650 guests dined on specialties from 20+ restaurants, honored arts advocates and supported the organization’s programs that bring teaching artists into 450+ schools and community centers throughout the state.
On Monday night, the inaugural Heart of the School Awards exceeded all expectations – 550 guests from Baltimore’s business and philanthropic communities honored Baltimore City public school principals (more than 100 of them were in attendance) and awarded 11 principals with funds to support their schools.

Sometimes you need to bring something down in order to build something up.
That was the case this morning as the Maryland Film Festival began demolition of the Chicken Box building at the corner of Charles and North. The site will be a new addition to the historic Parkway Theatre, which will open a year from now as the Parkway Film Center.
We like boosting up our clients. Today, we liked seeing them brought down.
