Glad Tidings

We’re beginning the holiday weekend and ending the year in a festive mood. In the past few days, many of our clients have spread their good news—some good holiday cheer—with us. We are pleased that we have had a role in their success.

– Record attendance and sales at two of Sugarloaf Craft Festivals’ fall shows

– A $2 million construction grant awarded to the Maryland Film Festival for the renovation of the Parkway Theater in Station North.

– La Cuchara, the Basque restaurant in Hampden/Woodberry, was one of only two restaurants named in the Daily Beast’s designation of Baltimore as a 2016 Hottest Destination, was listed as a Top Ten New Restaurant in City Paper, and was cited in Baltimore Magazine’s “Best Eats of 2015.”

Joy to the world. And to our clients.

Spread on the Bagel Boys

The Myerberg Center’s Bagel Boys Men’s Club is featured in today’s Jewish Times. The Club helps older men remain social and active at a time when they might otherwise become disengaged from their community. Not only does the article acknowledge the success of the program, but the Jewish Times is the ideal place to reach potential Bagel Boys members, and Myerberg supporters.

Lights, Camera, Parkway!

We’ve been working with the Maryland Film Festival to plan and promote Parkway 100: The Parkway Theatre’s Birthday Celebration. This past Friday, 150 guests launched the public portion of the $18 million fundraising campaign at a VIP event, followed by more than 750 guests celebrating the Parkway Theatre’s 100th birthday at the Ynot Lot. (Baltimore’s Parkway Theatre on North Avenue in Station North opened on October 23, 1915.)

Information about Parkway 100 and the Theatre’s restoration was all over the media. The Baltimore Sun ran a great piece in print and included Parkway 100 in the Week’s Ten Best events. The Baltimore Messenger featured a cover story and a second article online. The Daily Record, Baltimore Fishbowl, Bmore Art, Bisnow, Baltimore Magazine and Baltimore Brew all wrote about the Theatre and Friday’s events. Baltimore City Paper had an online photo gallery of the interior of the Theatre, a second gallery with photos from the event, and a blog post about Parkway 100. And Maryland Film Festival Executive Director Jed Dietz appeared on WBFF, twice on WYPR, and toured the Parkway with Ron Matz of WJZ.

Faring Well at the Fairgrounds

Over the past two weekends we’ve spent a lot of time at the Maryland State Fairgrounds coordinating TV segments, gathering social media content, and kicking off our fall season of promoting consumer shows!

Last weekend, the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival brought over 200 artists, live demonstrations and tens of thousands of visitors to the Fairgrounds. On Saturday, a metal artist appeared in-studio on WBFF to demonstrate his talent, and on Sunday, WJZ promoted the last day of the Festival with visits to artists’ booths.

This past weekend, the Maryland Home and Garden Show filled the Fairgrounds with home improvement ideas, seminars, and lots of TV. On Thursday, WBFF featured the show as its Hometown Hotspot. On Friday, Ron Matz from WJZ spoke with presenter Boyce Thompson about the newest in eco-friendly home gadgets. And on Sunday morning, WBFF returned for five segments.

With all this TV, we (and our clients) definitely fared well at the Fairgrounds!

City Paper’s Best of Baltimore

Today City Paper released its Best of Baltimore issue, and it was awesome (but not unexpected) to see many of our clients listed.

La Cuchara was named for Best Pintxos and Best Cocktail and was mentioned as an example of the Best Dining Trend: International Cuisine; the Maryland Science Center has the Best Toy Store; the Maryland Film Festival was cited for Best Synergy; and Old Line Spirits was mentioned in the Best Trend (craft distilling) category.

In the reader’s poll, Live Baltimore was voted the runner up for Best Baltimore-Related Website, La Cuchara won runner up for both Best New Restaurant and Best Tapas, and the Maryland Science Center was named the runner up for Best Place to Take Kids.

We’re happy to see that City Paper and its readers know what we already do—our clients are the best!
