Hello, my dear friends. I hope you and your family are enjoying this festive month. By the time you read this, my “Boo-Boo” and I will be packing up our RV to hit the road to LAS VEGAS! We will be leaving on Dec. 17. We are planning to make stops in all the cities in between, but our final destination will be parked in Sam’s Town RV Resort in the heart of Las Vegas. We should be returning on Jan. 8 if I don’t hit the big jackpot.

My goal is to make sure that you know what is going on in Baltimore while I am away. Believe me, there is a lot going on.

First, I want to tell you about this very nice restaurant that just opened up in a new location. I know you remember I wrote about this restaurant before in another location, but that didn’t happen for whatever reason. This time, it is a sure thing. The restaurant is called Chef Mac’s & All That Blues Restaurant. It is located at 4709 Harford Road. The hours of operation are Monday-Thursday noon-8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, noon-9 p.m. and Sunday they are closed. The menu will included a seafood buffet on Fridays, prime ribs and barbecue buffet on Saturdays. The resurant definitely has a bayou influence with items like blackened burgers Cajun grilled chicken, crawfish and jambalaya. My favorite, favorite thing is that they have live blues entertainment on the weekend. I think that is awesome! It will be so nice to have dinner while listening to blues entertainment instead of jazz. What a welcome change. For more information and reservation, call 310-319-6227.

M&J Promotions presents a “Winter Gospel Fest” on Dec. 11, starting at 6 p.m. You know on these programs, they don’t give you a time ending because you never know what time a gospel show going to end with all the shouting, dancing, praising the Lord. So be on time at the Faith Community Church, located at 1306 Marlboro Road in Lothian, Md. This program includes the “Gospel Pearls,” Lil’ David & Bells of Joy,” “Spiritual Voices,” “Voices of Ministry” and “Pat Crawford & One Spirit.” I am sorry, I do not have a contact number for you, but you call always call the church.

One more thing I must mention is the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church, which is presenting their “Family Friends and Guest Day Bazaar” at 5602 Johnnycake Road in Baltimore on Dec. 11, 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. You will taste food from all over the world from vendors prepared dish and hear live music. For more information, call Charlotte Martin-Wade, at 443-278-3211, or Wesley Memorial Church at 410-744-5462.

I don’t have much space, but I must tell you about the Buffalo Soldiers MC of Central Maryland Holiday Celebration 10th Anniversary, which is on Dec. 17, 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. For a night of dinning, laughter and dancing while listening to one of the baddest groups in Baltimore named the “Panama Band” along with Magic 95.9 radio personality, Tim Watts and comedian, “Alabama,” there is no end to the fun you can have. The event will be held at Tall Cedars Hall; 2501 Putty Hill Avenue in Baltimore. For ticket information, call 410-258-7005 or 410-367-6270.

Well folks, I really have to go now. I am out of space. If you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or e-mail me at rosapryor@aol.com. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
