    Attn Baltimore: &pizza is Coming to Federal Hill

    Dear Baltimore residents and visitors,

    This Thursday, May 26th, is your lucky day! &pizza, the unconventional collection of local pizza shops known in the D.C. area for their craft pizza, housemade soda, and ampersand tattooed employees, is proud to announce it will open its first Baltimore location in Federal Hill at 1201 South Charles Street.


    In light of this joyous occasion, &pizza will offer free pies for all on opening day! The first five guests to request the shop’s signature ampersand tattoo will receive a complimentary one at the nearby Brightside Tattoo Shop, and free pizza for a year (one pizza/week for 52 weeks) once they receive it.

    Expect nothing but the best in both food and experience. Beginning with the Baltimore location, &pizza will become the first to serve desserts from Milk Bar, the world renowned bakery founded by James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award-winner Christina Tosi and Momofuku’s David Chang in 2012. &pizza will also feature an ampersand painted on the white brick wall, paying homage to their first DC shop which has a large ampersand painted on the white brick wall.

    unnamed-1unnamed-2&pizza now has 15 shops in DC, Maryland, and Virginia–and is revered throughout the region as a brand that stands for more than just fresh pizza. Guests have the opportunity to craft their own individual pie or choose from seven signature pizzas, each one with their own unique flavor profile. The pizza shop uses fresh ingredients and works with local producers for its signature and seasonal menu of pizzas, snacks, craft sodas, and artisanal teas.


    •  Seven signature pizzas
    • Two dessert pizzas
    • Milk Bar cookies
    • Six craft sodas
    • Three teas

    Baltimore visitors will be the first to taste &pizza’s new core menu which includes two new signature pies and elevated ingredients.

    New pies include:

    • The Pineapple Jack, a take on a Hawaiian pizza with salami, pineapple, and Cherry Bomb BBQ.
    • The Salad Pizza, a whole new category of pizza with cucumber, tomatoes, pickled red onion and ranch.

    Guest favorites include the Farmer’s Daughter, a spicy sausage pizza topped with spinach and local farm eggs over easy; the Gnarlic, which incorporates garlic ricotta and garlic sauce with pesto; and the top seller, the Maverick, which includes pepperoni, Italian sausage, and salami.

    Be sure to stop by and grab a pie this Thursday, May 26th, 2016 at 1201 South Charles Street! Snap a picture of your delicious slice using the hashtag #andpizzabaltimore for a chance to win free &pizza gear and be featured on HeyDoYou!

    Live Life Adventurously @GOApeUSA Rockville Maryland

    I must be the only person who is jumping for joy that summer is over. To me, summer is great in small doses like 3 months and that is plenty for me.  Fall is definitely my favorite season for adventure.  It is after the sticky summer and right before the snowy winter.

    I wanted to find something to do and recommend to our readers so I decided to check out Go APE.  Go Ape Ltd. is an outdoor pursuits company which runs 28 Tree Top adventure courses in forests in England, Scotland and Wales consisting of rope ladders, zip-lines, rope bridges, trapezes and swings.

    On Friday, we drove the oh so sporty Silver FORD ESCAPE to Maryland got up early for our tree top adventure on Saturday!

    First of all Maryland is gorgeous. We stayed right by the RIO and the service was just exceptional. It is really nice to get a break from the hustle and bustle of New York. Look at this view!

    We arrived at the course and we were in a group of 12. We got our equipment and all the info from the Go Ape instructor Bridgette. She was funny and explained clearly what we had to do, to stay attached at all times and how to enjoy the adventure course. She is adjusting the harness on me right here – SO glad I didn’t wear shorts! The landing on your feet is not as easy as it looks!

    GoApe is challenging and fun but easy enough for a 10 year old. Good thing I was tall enough!

    Being attached with the red safety line is really really important. Here I am practicing before we got on to Course 1 – There were 5 in total.

    To land gracefully, you are suppose to land forwards running or land backwards by digging your heels in. I landed on my butt.

    The Tarzan swing was really cool! You attach all three hooks (blue, red and green) and swing!

    There were tough parts and easy parts – You can choose your level of challenge and there’s more than one way to complete each course.

    It was the most beautiful day and hanging out 40 feet high in the trees was so cool!

    I kinda felt like a monkey! Though I didn’t have a tail to help me balance I was strapped in place with the harness so I wasn’t scared of the heights for the most part. The park is well built, well maintained and the groups were spaced out so we didn’t feel rushed at all. Plus there was water at every station for us to stay hydrated.

    This bridge was by far the hardest of all! I got a bruise on my shin to prove it

    This is the perfect place to come on a date, a birthday, a weekend or for team building!

    Go Ape is a great adventure for anyone even if you are not a monkey, not in shape, not outdoorsy or not an expert!

    So much fun and we had an amazing time at Go Ape! If you want to see a video of me wiping out

    We will definitely go again.  Thank you!
