Close your eyes and imagine all of the tastiest treats, beers, wines and the best restaurants of the area. Now, open your eyes and realize that this was all a reality this past weekend, April 18 to 19, at The Emporiyum in Baltimore.
There were sweet things, salty things, savory things and even alcoholic things. For all of you who weren’t there basking in the foodie glory, I’m here to share some of the highlights of the day.
The market was massive and full of people and vendors. The Emporiyum had taken over an old bread distribution center to fit all of the vendors. Inside, the smells were overwhelming, my dad and I quickly scanned the market to see where to start our food journey. Continue reading

Whether it was the live performances, henna tattoos or authentic Middle Eastern cuisine, the diverse crowd found plenty to enjoy at Multicultural Night, hosted by the Muslim Student Association (MSA).

The list said that newspaper reporter was one of the worst jobs of 2015, just ahead of lumberjack, enlisted military personnel, cook and broadcaster (coincidentally, my backup plan in life is to become a chef, and when I took that awful career test in high school I once got lumberjack).

“So how on earth did you end up at Towson all the way from Tasmania?” is a question I get asked regularly.

As crazy as it sounds, it has already been about a year and a half since Paul Walker tragically passed away in a car crash. Since his untimely death, three of Walker’s movies have been released in theaters.
“Hours” and “Brick Mansions” survived with good reviews and ratings, but “Furious 7” has truly immortalized Walker and all of his achievements.
