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.

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!

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!

This past Saturday’s Akimbo Dance and Movement Art Festival brought together much of what we love: lots of people having a good time, record attendance, great media coverage, and activity in one of our favorite Baltimore Neighborhoods—Station North.

This past weekend the Maryland Science Center hosted its 10th annual Backyard Science Days. The two days of animal encounters, experiments, and demonstrations were accompanied by three days of live TV coverage.
On Friday, WBFF did several news segments where Science Center educators created elephant toothpaste, electrified a pickle, turned a light bulb on with a hot dog, and showed off a huge black vulture.
On Saturday, Bat Expert Rob Mies’ showed WBAL and WJZ many of his bats, including a Malayan Flying Fox (the largest species of bat in the world.) We loved WBAL reporter Omar Jimenez holding the bat! Also on Sunday, Rob was in studio with WBFF, demonstrating local bats’ echolocation, with an app on his iPad.
Not too bad for one weekend!

Over the past 10 weeks, La Cuchara, the new Basque restaurant in Meadow Mill, has been everywhere—in print, online and on television. The Baltimore Sun featured the restaurant three times—in a restaurant review, in a list of the top 10 new dishes in Baltimore (we can confirm, the duck confit is delicious!), and in the 101 Days and Nights in Baltimore special section.
La Cuchara was featured on TV twice—on WJZ and WBFF with co-owners Ben and Jake Lefenfeld displaying a selection of popular dishes and drinks.
But, more important than the media buzz, has been the buzz from diners. The restaurant has been packed and the reviews have been glowing. That’s perfect.
