We'll join Chef's Expressions at the stunning Gramercy Mansion for an elegant multi-course French-inspired dinner paired with thoughtfully selected French wines. The historic Gramercy Mansion is situated on 45 beautifully preserved acres just minutes north of Baltimore City and easily accessible from major thruways in the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan region and South Central Pennsylvania.

Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come "fly" over the rowhouses of the city to help Scrooge with his existential transformation.

Join our Pack and Tour dem Parks
Ride this way with Mixolo at this year's Tour dem Parks, an annual recreational bike ride through Baltimore's beautiful park system. Three routes and graduated start times for cycling novices and enthusiasts alike. And SWAG! We'll time our rides and meet up to reward ourselves for our efforts. Mixolo is a sponsor this year for this altruistic adventure. Proceeds benefit Baltimore's cycling, greening, parks and environmental groups.
