More than 30 vendors, and more than 500 guests mingled, tasted and sipped during the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce event Thursday.
Delicious, fresh and simple, was how Bonnie Black of Pikesville described the roast beef, fruit and shrimp offered by The Fresh Market Thursday night during Taste of Pikesville. "It was delicious. They are just presenting something very simple. The lox are to die for," the Pikesville resident said. She and her husband, David, were among the hundreds of area residents who ventured to the Hilton Baltimore North for the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce event. "I guess I was pretty excited about coming," David Black said. While he had already eaten at many of the 30-plus restaurants represented, he hadn't tried The Fresh Market or Island Quizine, one of Pikesville's newest restaurants. At Island Quizine, owner Donovan Murphy and staff served …

From 6-9 p.m. Thursday, more than 30 area restaurants, including Mt. Washington Tavern, Vernisage, Boordy Wines and Innovative Gourmet, are set to gather at the Pikesville Hilton, dishing out samples of their best fare.
It would take weeks to try dishes from more than 30 area restaurants. And it would take a lot of cash, as well. But the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce has created another option: an event called Taste of Pikesville. From 6-9 p.m. Thursday, more than 30 restaurants are set to gather in one place: the Hilton Baltimore North at 1726 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville. Tickets are $35 at the door. Pikesville Patch will be there as well. Stop by our booth to pick up a magnet or a pen—as long as our supply lasts—or to sign up for our newsletter that's delivered to your e-mail each morning.

Avoiding tourist traps, here are ways to explore Baltimore culture during a vacation at home.
It's a long weekend, and there's plenty to do if you decide to stay here and enjoy what Baltimore has to offer. When it comes to finding the best spots to take out-of-town visitors, or get a bite to eat, there's no advice like a local's advice. As a lifelong Pikesville resident, I am one. So here's what I recommend: Take in a museum. The American Visionary Art Museum is a must-see. Say "Hi" to director Rebecca Hoffberger from me if she is there—an old high school friend! The Baltimore Museum of Art is my other favorite. Eat lunch in the Sculpture Garden, unless it’s too hot; then eat inside looking out onto the garden. It's the best venue and menu in town. Eat dinner one night in Little Italy at Sabatino’s, where my husband and I are …

What’s on your menu? Local markets offer everything from culinary tips to catering.
Rachael Ray has these spectacular food adventures on her show, $40 A Day. Well, it's the holidays. There's plenty of food to be cooked and recipes to be concocted for those chefs-in-training who just love to experiment. We all know someone like this. (Never mention any names.) Instead of following the recipe, these "CITs" add, delete and over- or undercook potential palate-pleasers. I must admit I've done this a few times. (OK, more than a few times.) But this year, I promised myself it would be different. Maybe, just maybe, I would try not to special order at restaurants or get that Lucy McGillicuddy Ricardo gleam in my eye when I start to cook something in the kitchen. I ventured into the frozen, frigid air to spend a day in Pikesville …
