and so it is said‌

CHANGE. It's a new year and that is what is on most everyones mind: What we need to change, what we want to change, can we cope with impending change. It's one of the few certainties in life. Change...it is a comin'! FIND iT FREDERiCK is posed for some exciting new changes too. Summer 2012 will be FiND iT's 5th birthday! So, we're getting our ducks in a row and stirring a big pot of creative ideas so that we can bring you, the readers and supporters of our little publication, some exciting new changes! But while you wait for what's next, settle back for a long winters nap. Well, don't completely hibernate...because there are too many fun, exciting, (warm and inside) things to do and see right here in Frederick County. Take in a classic film at The Weinberg, take a cooking class, break out the roller skates and try your hand at roller derby...it's all possible right in your own back yard. So if there is any one thing that shouldn't change, it would be that none of us stop living life to the fullest, Frederick County style!

SAVOR iT!

SAVOR iT!

Words by Liza Hawkins Photos By: Barb Campbell, Studio 11 Photography & Framing

The excited murmurs among Frederick locals about the Wine Kitchen opening a second spot along Carroll Creek started early last fall. Those who have had the pleasure of dining in the flagship Leesburg, VA, location knew we were in for a treat. So when the Frederick Wine Kitchen opened its doors on October 1, with a focus, familiar to the Wine Kitchen's Leesburg location, on locally sourced food and supporting nearby farms, as well as a chef whose prior role was sous-chef and pastry chef at VOLT Restaurant, I was giddy.

The restaurant's is simple – “At the Wine Kitchen we operate under the central idea of 'Eat, Drink, Simply.' Wine and food are at the root of simple pleasures and should be enjoyed among friends and family over the sound of happy voices and hearty laughter. We think both wine and food are best when presented in their purest form. We serve our wine and food without pomp or circumstance, just artfully prepared and presented with care.” My book club friends recently joined me one evening for a taste of what the Wine Kitchen has to offer, both in atmosphere and gastronomy. Due to a slight planning miscalculation, none of us ended up making a reservation, and yet each of us thought we had one. The first thing to note when planning a Saturday evening dinner at the Wine Kitchen for 7 p.m. is that reservations are a must. The wait for a five-top was a lengthy 90 minutes, but considering that the Wine Kitchen is first and foremost a wine bar, making those 90 minutes fly by won't be terribly difficult as long as you can grab a seat at the bar.

SAVOR iT! For example, the Flights of Wine – three different wines served as a trio in smallersized portions – make for a fabulous conversation piece, especially with the little note that accompanies each type of wine. It's this wordsmith handiwork that lends another clever layer to the upbeat atmosphere. Here's what was composed for the Taking Root pinot grigio: “What we thought… A plucked string on a harp has almost as much kinetic energy as this wine. The flavors of lemons, limes, and crisp Pink Lady apples vibrate across your tongue with such intensity that you can feel the flavor as much as taste it. A wispy finish of minerality and a skosh of honeysuckle fade slowly as the pitch of this wine rises and falls. Drinking your music is a great way to expand your listening enjoyment.” Do co-owners Mike Mercer and Jason Miller know how to describe the wine or what?! We loved that little touch, along with many others. The interior of the Wine Kitchen is modest, with earthy notes in the re-purposed wooden barn siding that lines a back wall, as well as a semi-open kitchen where the chefs are hustling! Wooden crates turned on their sides create a perfect backdrop for showcasing different wines being served, one of which (a red) comes from Mount Airy's very own Black Ankle Vineyards. There's a glass room toward the back, where private groups can reserve a spot, and a conversation nook up front with a comfortable couch and chairs. Once we were seated at our table, a cozy spot by the front window with views of Carroll Creek, the noshing began. The menu presented seasonal foods, with simple, straightforward flavors on small plates. Broken up into categories like “From the Farm” and “Pastures and Sky,” the menu made it fun to pick something from each. We started with an assortment of three artisanal cheeses, which included a buttery, nutty Camembert and two different blues, along with a savory, homemade cross between breadsticks and biscotti. In addition, we ordered the curry cashews – served warm, the marriage of the curry spice with the natural nut oils was delicious. Then began the main courses.... Dinner for one friend included WK “Ham and Eggs,” served with one poached egg, polenta and watercress. Another ordered the YellowFin Tuna Tartar with pistachio, olives, chili and yogurt. It was absolutely fabulous – smooth-as-butter fantastic – with a slight tart and tangy bite from the yogurt, and crispiness from the tiny homemade potato chips on top. I was nearly upset that I didn't order the tartar, until I dug into my own lovely plate.


SAVOR iT!

The Wine Kitchen Heritage Pork Belly is like bacon on steroids. You know the really, really good part of bacon that melts in your mouth (some call it “fat”)? Pork belly served right has a thick crust that mirrors that same bacon fat taste, only better. Fork tender, each meaty bite cut effortlessly – it was as though I was eating pulled pork, except it was far more decadent. And rich. And just, well, sensational. The pork belly was served atop a generous wisp of pumpkin puree that was excellent for complementing a porkfilled forkful as it started its flight from plate to mouth. And the caramelized pears that flanked the pork and pumpkin? They were great as a palate cleanser in between bites, and also as part of the pork and pumpkin forkful. Utterly magnificent. The five of us each nearly licked our plates clean, and our only regret was the “small plates” for which the Wine Kitchen is known. We could have eaten twice the amount, easily. As it was, we took our time enjoying what we had, and the cozy and friendly atmosphere that the Wine Kitchen boasts lent itself to lots of conversation. Even though the dining room isn't very spacious, we never felt like we had to shout above the other bubbling conversations around us. Good friends. Great food. One amazing evening at Frederick's Wine Kitchen. www.thewinekitchen.com 50 Carroll Creek Way, Suite 160 Frederick, MD 21701 301-663-6968

Pretzel Power

Photos By: Barb Campbell, Studio 11 Photography & Framing

Addictive might be a strong word, but it certainly applies to most of what is served at this cozy gathering spot. The pretzel dogs, the pretzel bagels, the pizza made on the divine pretzel dough...it's all worth the wait! This is NOT a fast food joint. It's a made-fresh, served-with-asmile, kind of place that just happens to get you your meal in a timely fashion. Grab a menu and then step aside so you don't feel rushed. Then, rest assured, whether you choose a hot sandwich, the soup of the day, or a simple salted soft pretzel...there really is no wrong choice! www.pretzelandpizzacreations.com 210 N.

T

o indulge is to gratify one’s desires or feelings, to yield to one’s wishes and whims, or to follow one’s will or inclination. Imagine indulging in chocolate lasagna, shortbread layered with chocolate and cream, or golden waffles dipped in melted chocolate. Joannie Jenkins, from Carroll Street Café, will be pampering patrons with tempting treats at a new event coming to downtown Frederick.

Although Frederick Restaurant Week isn’t scheduled until March 5-11, an event scheduled on Sunday, January 29th will give patrons the opportunity to beat the winter blues and satisfy their sweet tooth. The event, “An Evening of Decadent Desserts,” will feature ten local chefs, caterers and other vendors who will provide terrific samples all night long. This showcase further highlights Frederick as a culinary destination.

Deliciou Dec All this will take place at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, made over as a Frederick speakeasy

SAVOR iT! during the Roaring 20’s. The Roaring 20’s was a period of social, artistic and cultural dynamism, when Art Deco peaked, jazz music blossomed, and the flapper redefined modern womanhood. There will be plenty of flapper girls in attendance, donning their short skirts, bobbing their hair, wearing dramatic makeup, drinking, and harking back to an era when youth flaunted their disdain for what was considered acceptable behavior. This family-friendly event will certainly be a treat!

Of course, jazz will be part of the night’s equation. The Hood College Jazz Band will provide live music. Joining them for the evening will be singer Connie Guy. Frederick resident Connie Guy, a native of New Orleans, began singing at the tender age of 5, when she sang Theresa Brewer’s “Let Me Go, Lover” at the local Masonic Lodge. Her spirit and style is forged through the years she performed in Mardi Gras parades, the hotels of Nicaragua, music festivals, nightclubs, country clubs, private parties and grand affairs.

Connie surely presents the heart and soul of a true star to her audience. In addition to Carroll Street Café, Moxie Bakery and Café is another restaurant participating in the decadent desserts extravaganza. One of the samplings Moxie will be serving is a chocolate pear gateau, which is a flourless chocolate cake made with pear puree, dark chocolate glaze, and pear décor. Another item is a tropical mousse cake, which is a stenciled joconde sponge cake, passion fruit sponge cake, mango Bavarian mousse, and Meyer lemon glaze. Are your taste buds tempted yet? Moxie Bakery and Café is a social enterprise operated by Cakes for Cause and provides job training and support to youth in Frederick who have aged out of foster care or who live in public housing in our community. Moxie offers youth apprentices real work experience and learning opportunities that put them on the path to successful adulthood. For founder Elin Ross, a Moxie experience isn’t just about the food, but how you feel about the food. “We want to engage your senses,” she said. Moxie’s commitment to the craftsmanship of the food it serves is not only important to the experience of the consumer, but also to the experience of Moxie’s apprentices.  “We want you to experience the surprise and understanding that comes from traditional techniques and the artisan craft of baking. That doesn’t mean that we don’t want to stretch your palates, though,” Ross said. Canapés has been offering fine cuisine and impeccable, personalized service since 1989 in Maryland, Pennsylvania, northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. They, too, will be participating in “An Evening of Decadent Desserts.”

Carroll has long been on the forefront of the culinary arts in the region and is a leading caterer and chef based in Frederick, Maryland. Carroll, who is currently competing for a spot on Bravo’s Top Chef, enjoys competitive events. “Most chefs have egos and a competitive drive,” she said. However, the main reason she participates is because it provides a way of giving back to the community. Regarding her decadent desserts, she will be offering a chocolate brioche french toast and bananas foster trifle with burnt orange sauce, as well as chocolate cremeaux in a coconut and toasted peanut tuille nest with caramel drizzle and espresso dirt. Carroll has worked with all these ingredients before, but this competition is the first time she will be putting all the components together.

SAVOR iT!

Homeless and Frightened at 18... Derrick Williams’ family situation wasn’t good. His parents had retired and moved to Thailand, and his twin sister had been placed in the custody of the Department of Social Services.

“I was with the Job Corps in West Virginia,” he says, “but I wanted to make a fresh start. So I called the Community Action Agency in Frederick to make sure they had a bed for me, and I came out.” But as it turned out, the agency didn’t have a bed for him after all. Derrick found himself homeless at the age of 18, with no friends or family to turn to. Yet there was one place he could go. “When we started out in 1964, this was just a 10-bed shelter with a thrift store,” says Tommy Skaggs, director of development at the Frederick Rescue Mission, a Christian-based home for the poor, needy and addicted. “We’re now the largest provider of meals and shelter to the underprivileged in Frederick County. We serve hot meals to about 100 families every day, 365 days a year.” That number quadruples during the holiday season, when 300 to 400 families gather to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with meals they couldn’t afford otherwise. While they’re there, they can

SAVOR iT! also go through the Mission’s “bread aisle” — a veritable farmer’s market of baked goods, produce and meat donated by local supermarkets — to pick up what they need to get through the rest of the day. “Last year [2010], we donated 2,100 food boxes to local families,” says Skaggs. The “food boxes” are packed with enough groceries to last a family of four facing a crisis situation for up to five days.

But the Rescue Mission doesn’t stop there... “We also have the Beacon House Changed Life Recovery Program for men,” says Skaggs. It was this program that saved young Derrick from life on the streets. How does the Mission accomplish all of this? “We absolutely need the support from the community,” Skaggs emphasizes. “We don’t get money from the government. We rely solely on the generosity of area organizations, churches and neighbors to keep the Mission going.”

One Woman Reaches Out... “This is something I’ve wanted to do for a lot of years,” says Tammy Martinez with

WINTER 2012


SAVOR iT! a broad smile. She’s the owner of the The Little Pottery Shop located in Shab Row, downtown Frederick. “There’s a great deal of satisfaction in knowing I’m helping local people get back on their feet.” Martinez is talking about the Souper Sunday Empty Bowls event she spearheaded to benefit the Frederick Rescue Mission. The event takes place in March and is now in its third year. This is how it works: several hundred bowls are created specifically for the event by Martinez, local potters and students. Then the bowls are sold for $25 apiece. That $25 buys not only the bowl but a ticket to the soup tasting event that follows. Local restaurants compete against one another in a soup challenge, ladling out crowd-pleasers like Maryland crab soup and tomato bisque. Even the Rescue Mission steps up to the plate with cook Andy Anderson’s famous chili. “The chili is always a hit,” says Martinez, laughing. “The first year we ran out, so last year Andy made sure to have plenty on hand.” If that isn’t enough, generous businesses like Panera Bread and the Frederick Coffee Company pitch in with breads, desserts and hot drinks to keep people rejuvenated between spoonfuls, and Rovnik, an alternative rock band from New York, keeps the crowd’s spirits up with free music. When everyone is done, they submit their votes for their favorite soups. “Last year Danielle’s won for its cream of crab soup,” says Martinez. “But the Mission was a close second with the chili!” interjects Skaggs. Fun, food, entertainment, and gorgeous, hand-made bowls. And for what? “All proceeds go to the Frederick Rescue Mission,” Martinez says proudly. The Souper Sunday’s debut event netted the Mission $7,800 in donations and last year brought in $8,200. “I’m probably crazy,” Martinez says, “but my goal is $15,000 this year. I think we just might be able to do it.” “The Mission wouldn’t make it without creative fundraisers like these,” says Skaggs. “We’re very excited about it.”

A Happy Ending Means a New Beginning... Derrick graduated from the Mission’s year-long Beacon Life program in October 2010. The program focuses on helping men reach eight important life goals, including discovering spirituality, finding a job, and having a safe place to live. To help Derrick attain one particular, and important, goal, the Mission had a surprise for him. They found his twin sister, whom Derrick hadn’t seen in two years, and brought her to his graduation ceremony. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the building,” says Skaggs, his voice warm with feeling. Derrick, who once lived on Frederick’s streets for three long months, is now enrolled at Frederick Community College and is studying music theory. “I wouldn’t be where I am now without the Mission,” he says. “They helped me get back on my feet.” And people like Tammy Martinez are making sure the Mission continues to do that long into the future.

The Frederick Strings have been performing at weddings and other special occasions for over 15 years. The group, consisting of string and flute-string quartets and trios, has its own website, and one can go there to learn about pricing plans and other important business matters, but I wanted to know more about the spirit and the art of the group. So I sat down with Rita O’Neil, the founder and owner, to see if I could learn what makes Frederick Strings so successful, besides playing excellent music.

Photos by istockphoto.com

I didn’t have to speak to O’Neil for long to know what that secret is — personal investment in the happiness of her clients, coupled with a true passion for playing the music. “I’m very client oriented,” she told me. “I want to do whatever makes their event more special and beautiful…I actually try to get to know the families before I perform for them. It’s an investment in the entire family and the entire event.” O’Neil originally put that personalized approach into practice with a similar business in Delaware. She formed Frederick Strings not long after moving to the area in 1994. She couldn’t be happier with the location, which has provided her and the group’s other musicians with many satisfying opportunities.

HEAR iT! “I love Frederick. I have lived in other places, but I just can’t imagine a better place for [playing music].” Her musicians — whether among her select group of regulars, or those hired on a performance-by-performance basis — are also usually of local stock. “I work with an organist, I work with a trumpet, I work with a pianist. I love working with vocalists,” she explained. “I try to work with all Frederick people.” Local or not, however, there is one quality first and foremost that O’Neil looks for in musicians before hiring them, and it is not mere technical proficiency. She won’t work with a musician again if he or she does not possess the same level of emotional involvement in the work that she does. “If you’re not going to get involved,” she explained, “you might as well just play a CD.” O’Neil and her personally involved musicians play jazz music and some rag, but by far classical music is the most popular choice. That may be due to the nature of most of the clientele: brides. In O’Neil's own words, despite having played for bar mitzvahs, awards banquets, and just once a funeral, Frederick Strings is “primarily a wedding business.” But with such a huge repertoire, how does one possibly go about selecting music for a wedding? O’Neil guides clients through the process of selection. “If they don’t know the exact piece they want, I ask them what mood they want to set,” she revealed to me. Everything, she explained, begins with understanding the type of atmosphere a client wants for any given aspect of the ceremony. She then works with

HEAR iT! the client to select the appropriate pieces to fit said mood. “I’m very careful to accommodate exactly what they want.” Not having attended many weddings, I had some assumptions about what playing for one might be like. One difficulty that came to mind was playing, sometimes for hours, without being the center of attention, unlike in a concert. Does that make playing the music more challenging? No, it turns out. Or, at least, not as often as I had assumed. “We usually play a prelude for about a half-hour before the service begins,” O’Neil explained, in reference to a recent wedding at which Frederick Strings played. “During that prelude, while we were playing, there wasn’t a sound in the church. It was almost as if we were giving a concert.” I also wondered if playing the same songs from the same repertoire so often makes the music seem stale after a while. “It never gets old,” O’Neil reassured me, “because we always play it from our hearts. Every time.” “Heart” may in fact be the best way to describe the entire nature of what Frederick Strings offers, from their work with clients to set the perfect mood, to playing the pieces, and of course through the personal interest that the musicians take in those for whom they play. Such investment is bound to have an impact on O’Neil and her musicians during events. She described the most emotional experience she has had playing a wedding so far, wherein a very frail father of the groom, with terminal cancer, made it to the ceremony against all odds. “Everybody knew that he was just there by the grace of God,” she said, “and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church, including me and my musicians. It was a beautiful moment.” I wanted to conclude my conversation with O’Neil by asking what, if anything, was universal among her clients as they plan their weddings. What can be expected from the experience of participating in these plans, once she becomes involved, no matter what? Her answer was both confident and, I would imagine, quite reassuring to countless people who hire her and her musicians: “I tell many of my clients, ‘Something will go wrong on your wedding day. But it’s not going to be the music.’” www.fredstrings.com

MOVE iT!

Words by Amanda Rodriguez

Since joining the FiND iT team a little over a year ago, I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying some pretty neat experiences — things anyone in Frederick could do if they were motivated and energetic enough. Fun things like taking a class at the Frederick Fight Club and pole dancing with the skilled ladies at A Pole New You.

When I ventured into the aerial arts class held Friday nights at Dance Unlimited recently, I figured things would go similarly: I’d go try the class, actually do okay (which is code for NOT dying), and write all about my conquest for the enjoyment of Frederick residents everywhere. Well, yeah, no. Not this time. This time, I didn’t even bother to suit up.

WWW.FiNDiTFREDERiCK.COM

One look at the high-flying, trapezelike contraption the buff (but still feminine and beautiful, of course!) women teaching the yoga aerial course were using, and I knew I was out of my league. Way out. My upper body is in no position to hang on as my more-than-ample lower body dangles from it. Also, I’m pretty sure I’m afraid of heights. So, I grabbed some wall at the back of the class and watched in awe as teachers Therese Keegan and Lizard Walker-Keegan led their small class of four (some members were absent) first through an on-the-floor yoga and core exercise to warm up, and then to the skies for the remainder of the 60-minute class. It was intriguing to watch all of the interaction with the trapeze. And it was amazing to see the things they could do with their bodies. Strength and flexibility, two things I lack almost completely, they had oozing out of their pores. Don’t get me wrong. The class is not just for inhumanly strong women who are experts at climbing silks (the long), drape-like material that hangs from the ceiling and is used to shimmy up and down with grace) and whipping themselves through metal hoops like circus performers. There were women of varying levels of aerial arts ability in the class (although, to be fair, I was watching the Aerial Technique class designed for students with at least advanced dance training under their belts). Some of them were just barely getting inches off the ground as they practiced with the silks, while some of them were performing complex flips and turns on the lyra (think big metal hoop in the sky). Also, it’s okay for guys to enjoy aerial arts too!

WINTER 2012


MOVE iT! As a matter of fact, aerial yoga, sometimes referred to as anti-gravity yoga, is a growing trend among many fitness and yoga enthusiasts, male and female. As they attempt to achieve anti-gravity in order to “create a lighter existence,” aerial fitness participants are learning to take their minds and bodies to new heights, challenging themselves to do what they’ve perfected on the ground in the air as well. Regardless of whether your desire is to live lighter, achieve inner peace, or up your overall fitness, there is one thing every aerial artist, expert or novice, has in common: they like having fun learning to fly!

ViSiT iT!

The first thing you learn in the sport of roller derby is how to fall. Because, make no mistake, there is a wrong way to do it. The wrong way involves falling backwards, or forwards, spreadeagled, with all of your limbs and extremities exposed. Leave your fingers dangling during a fall in this sport, and you are in for a world of pain. At least four very heavy, very speedy wheels are more than likely going to roll over your fingers. And that’s not going to feel great.

What does feel great, say the members of Frederick’s first official roller derby league, known as Key City Roller Derby, is the chance to compete alongside a wide array of men and women from many different walks of life, with many varied professions, and who are many different sizes, shapes and ages. But no matter who you are, when you join the league, the first thing you will be taught — after you strap on your helmet, kneepads, and elbow pads and put in your mouth guard — are the several ways to fall properly. Because in roller derby, everyone falls. A lot.

WWW.FiNDiTFREDERiCK.COM

65


ViSiT iT! So, the dozen or so women and men who gathered recently for an open practice sponsored by Key City Roller Derby spent nearly the entire practice performing falling drills. Speeding around the makeshift oval track set up at the Captain Michael Cresap Armory off of Old National Pike in Frederick, at the cue of a whistle blast, the skaters dropped to their knees, tucked their elbows and obeyed the “fingers in” command, then popped back up after four seconds. That's known as the four-point fall, one of the correct ways to fall during roller derby. There’s also a proper way to react when someone falls right in front of you, so that you don’t fall as well. And that is to hop. Easy, right? Well, not if you’re carrying the weight of four-wheeled skates on your feet. So the skaters spent a good deal of time practicing that as well. Skaters also have several options to stop themselves while speeding along the track. One is the plow, during which the skaters squat down on their skates, get low, slow down and slide. Skaters liken it to skiing. But really, there is no other sport like roller derby, at least according to Key City Roller Derby President Shae Yamrus, known in the derby world as Too Shae.

66

WINTER 2012


ViSiT iT! Yamrus was introduced to roller derby through a friend and says “it was love at first skate.” She loves the diversity of people who become attracted to the sport and gets a rush every time she steps onto the track, she says. It’s difficult to describe the feeling to others, Yamrus says, but eventually most are won over by the sport. Case in point: Yamrus’ own husband, who was slow to understand his wife’s devotion to the sport until recently, when he was “bitten by the derby bug,” has joined the group’s “Fresh Meat” program. Yamrus says the feeling of being in the middle of a bout is best described as pure controlled chaos. “You’ve got the hitting and screaming going on, but in the midst of all that, there is this movement of communication of strategy with your team,” she said. “You will have those feelings of butterflies when you step out on the line, but once you hear the whistle, the nerves just fade away.” According to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, flat track roller derby is a fast-paced contact team sport that requires speed, strategy and athleticism. The flat track version of the sport evolved in 2001 and has quickly grown to encompass more than 400 leagues worldwide. In the state of Maryland, Key City is one of five leagues, including the Charm City Roller Girls of Baltimore, Mason-Dixon Roller Vixens of Hagerstown, Free State Roller Derby of Rockville, and Chesapeake Roller Derby of Westminster. Yamrus said that many of the skaters who now roll with Key City used to travel in order to participate in roller derby. Frederick needed roller derby, she said. “Frederick is in a wonderful location that offers the opportunity of roller derby to more of a broad area,” said Yamrus. “Starting up a team in Frederick allowed us to bring the sport closer to home. Frederick so far has been nothing but open, welcoming arms.”

ViSiT iT! The league introduced itself officially to the area during September’s In The Street festival in downtown Frederick. Since then, multiple open practices have welcomed lots of prospective members. Key City wants to grow as much and as quickly as possible so that the league can include four teams and have home bouts a few times per month. “So spreading the word is one of the things on the top of our list,” Yamrus said. “Community is a huge part of who we are and what we do, so we are always looking for ways to help in any way that we can.” To that end, Key City has an active Facebook page, where it posts photos and announcements often. The league also has a website, at www.keycityrollerderby. org, that offers lots of information and helpful advice. Much of the time, Yamrus and her fellow skaters end up fielding questions such as, “Is roller derby real?” and “When are we going to see girl fights?” “We hear a lot about how everyone remembers back in the day watching roller derby on TV and how the girls would get into fights — throw some elbows and a few punches,” she said. “I just smile and laugh. Yes, roller derby is real, but not in the sense of how it was back in the day. Today we have regulated rules and guidelines which we have to uphold. We do get knocked around and a little beaten up, but roller derby is a sport, and we treat it like one.” Yamrus, who is 25 and a mother, holds a full time job and has lots of other activities in her life, but she hopes she can keep participating in roller derby for many, many years. “I don’t think that there is a typical duration for a roller derby girl. Roller derby as a sport is one that is rare, in that there is no age cut or discrimination,” she said. “The thought of leaving roller derby usually makes girls’ stomachs turn. The common reason for girls leaving is life. Things come up that they can’t control, or new priorities have come to light.” For now, Yamrus is making Key City a huge priority, and she hopes many others in Frederick will do the same. www.keycityrollerderby.org

ViSiT iT!

berg Words by Erik McCabe Anderson Photos By: Barb Campbell, Studio 11 Photography & Framing

One of the most exciting adventures I’ve had in recent months was taking in a late-night silent horror film over last Halloween weekend as part of the Weinberg Center’s regular film series of older cinema. I’ve always been something of a sucker for forms of entertainment and art that rely on relatively simple methods to create amazing products. I feel that when the tools of a craft are basic, there is less of an aesthetic distance between the will of human creative genius and the fruits of its labor. So when I watched the gray and white flickers of light from the 1920 "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" playing upon the large screen hanging over the stage and bouncing off the walls of the historic theatre built during the same era in which the film was produced, I saw much more than grainy images of exaggerated melodrama from a yet underdeveloped art form. I saw the timeless mark of the human artistic soul in its most essential form.

ViSiT iT!

Although a modern audience might be annoyed by the lack of sound, the necessity of having to get by without a major element of performance that we take for granted led to many creative layers of art that modern movies cannot hope to recapture. The biggest challenge for the actors was trying to convey their dialogue to the audience without words. Most of the actors of the silent film era had previously been big names on the stage, so they relied heavily on classical theatrical training and paid special attention to their physical presence on screen. Their movements might seem silly and hyper-exaggerated to us, but they explore the full range of communication that is possible with the human form: something modern actors are prone to neglect. But even more impressive than the commanding stage-like presence of the actors is an element that for many people defines the silent movie experience: the mighty Wurlitzer! The Weinberg does a really great job setting the atmosphere for its films by opening with a clip explaining the history of this old organ that was designed to enable a single person to replace the live orchestras that originally compensated for the lack of soundtracks attached to the films. Ray Brubacher, the Weinberg’s organist, says in the clip that the Wurlitzer at the Weinberg is mightier than most of the ones installed in theatres during the same time period, because it has pipes embedded in the walls on both sides of the stage, which provides a surround-sound effect during performance. After that brilliant introduction, it was thrilling to see the organ console slowly rise up out of the stage with its keyboard ablaze, the organist piping out a carnivallike tune. The movie-goer relies heavily on the master musician at the keys to literally set the tone as the film progresses through its plot. At light-hearted moments in the film, his fingers trip fleetingly across the keys, often making use of the hidden percussion instruments, such as bells and drums. At scary or profound moments, he lingers heavily upon the deeper notes, the low pitches of which penetrate the hollow of my chest. This artistic labor is especially impressive to me, because I cannot comprehend the advanced neurological pattern that exists in the head of a person who can concentrate on such complex pieces for 80 minutes straight. Even more mindblowing to my musically-inept cerebellum is that the majority of the scores played for silent movies at the Weinberg are original to Brubacher. He said in the film

clip that most of the original music sheets recommended for the films were burned when the movie studios were making room for later productions, so he has to write his own pieces! Even if all of that doesn’t warm you up to silent movies, don’t worry, because most of the films in the series are actually talkies that haven’t been shown on the big screen in decades. There are very few other places in the world where you can watch famous movie classics like Gone With the Wind in the viewing format for which they were originally intended. A few years ago, I stopped in for a showing of the old Looney Tunes clips, where, for the first time in my life, I bore witness to a 10-foot Bugs Bunny looming large over a laughing audience. The Weinberg offers us a rare opportunity to see that the classic works of art that contributed so greatly to our modern culture need not be relegated to the history books. On special magical nights, you can travel back to a time when cinematography was in a raw state and get lost in the multilayered performances that captivated the imaginations of our great-grandparents. But as with every feature of our great city, it’s impossible to fully understand this experience without trying it for yourself! Weinberg Center for the Arts www.weinbergcenter.org 20 W.

SPEND iT!

Words by Amanda Rodriguez

I am the slighty-embarrassed-but-mostly-over-it owner of 10-thumbed man hands. That’s my intricate way of saying that I stink at making things from scratch. The only DIY projects I can complete have to do with a smartphone, and I’m about as creative as a newborn baby.

People who make things by hand intrigue me — the patience, the dedication, the creativity! All of it blows my mind. Which is why I like stalking online sites like Etsy. It is filled to bursting with products everyday people make with their own two hands. Everything from bedroom furniture to leggings for babies can be found for sale on the site, and it’s neat to see such talented people making a living — or at least a sizable shoe fund — from things they create first with their minds and then bring to life with their hands! Some of those people live right here in our own hometown of Frederick.

SPEND iT! If you’ve spent any time getting to know some of Frederick’s downtown shops, you’ve probably wandered into The Muse. It’s the pink one filled with whimsy and sunshine sitting smack in the middle of Market Street. You sorta can’t help but notice it, and once you do, you sorta can’t help but go inside. Then, after seeing all of the custom, handmade beauty, you kinda can’t leave without buying something. You just can’t. At least not if you’re me. It was inside this happy place that I first encountered the awesomeness of Taryn Cicso. (Her name even sounds artsy, doesn’t it?) She is the creator of a super funky, retro line of products that chicks and dudes alike can dig — cool-type stuff you didn’t even know you needed, like mini flasks or mustaches on a stick. (You never know when you’re gonna need to photo bomb someone at a wedding!) She’s sold thousands of her hand-designed items via Etsy. She makes highly anticipated appearances at craft shows and art showcases. She’s even been blogged about on awesome sites that rave about cool things that regular people love to love. Besides, she’s done all this while maintaining a household with two young children and a life! It’s a pretty sweet gig (do what you love for sorta good money and a little bit of fame) that shops like The Muse, sites like Etsy, and people who are willing to support a local entrepreneur over a big box store have made possible.

It’s sort of a retro idea too if you think about it. Makes you think of the good old days, when a shop owner knew your name and had your weekly order waiting


SPEND iT! for you when you walked in. It’s something that I’ve never experienced (I’m too young, you hear me, too young!), but I am hopeful that my children will get to know a little about the intimacy of a local, individualized shopping experience (maybe not exactly, thanks to technology, but with the push for personalization and such, there’s hope). I for one am more than happy to support local creators of awesomeness. It helps the economy, it brings energy to the city, and it’s just cool. To actually know where something comes from, and to help someone in your own community experience success with your purchase, are added bonuses that I, for one, am excited about experiencing. Fortunately, Frederick provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy locally-made products worth buying and owning. From the types of products you can find in The Muse, to the various art galleries around town (have you been to the Blue Elephant Art Center yet?), to the dedication to using locally grown vegetables and meats in restaurants (thank you, Cafe Nola and Volt), it’s just too easy to NOT consider.

OVER THE EDGE!

The holiday season is over, winter is upon us and everyone is looking for something interesting to do that doesn’t require us to travel far, break the bank or lose a finger to frostbite. That stuff is NO kind of fun. But, you know what’s indoor and warm and fun all over?

Art! WWW.FiNDiTFREDERiCK.COM

OVER THE EDGE! Concerts, exhibits, recitals, theater performances and more can all be enjoyed from a cozy seat in a well-heated (and likely beautiful) venue without straying far from home. And often for free or very reasonable prices too. Frederick County is home to a number of theater companies, art galleries, performing arts schools and more to get your live entertainment fix. But, as far as I can tell, one of the main benefits of living in a metropolitan area such as D.C. is that you can broaden your horizons a bit! I’m not even suggesting you fight beltway traffic, ride the Metro or venture into unknown parts of The District to do so. Why not just start with our neighbor to the south, Montgomery County? Montgomery County, Maryland is home to fine arts venues of all shapes and sizes. Whether you are looking to enjoy a holiday showing of the Nutcracker performed by puppets or a stage performance of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, you can find plenty to whet your artistic palette in the Montgomery County arts and humanities community. Adults, children and families can all find a number of interesting ways to incorporate arts into their lives by visiting the various theaters, dance studios, music schools and arts learning centers. With more than thirty arts and humanities venues around Montgomery County, there truly is something for everyone! Need help narrowing down the field? Here are a few of our picks for you!

Art for Kids... The Puppet Co.

When it comes to puppet shows, the Puppet Co. is not your average theater! While the puppeteers do present some hand puppet performances (particularly for their Tiny Tots shows) they also utilize a variety of other types of puppetry on their stage.  Intriguing for both adults and children, their yearround events are a great way to introduce children to theater. www.thepuppetco.org

Think about which three independently owned stores you’d miss most if they were gone. Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that will make someone smile. Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around. If just half the employed U.S. population spent $50 each month in independently owned stores, their purchases would generate $42,629,700,000 in revenue.* Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 of employed Americans did that. For every $100 spent in independently owned stores, $68 of it returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.
