Gifts for Dad

Jun 1, 2017

SUPER HEROES, that is what they are. However, dads seldom get the credit they deserve, and we all know the showering of love bestowed upon motherhood overshadows Father’s Day. We take the stale tie gesture, awful socks and overall lack of thoughtfulness in finding unique gifts for Dad and bid them adieu. How do we say we love the man who is, above all, a provider? Fearless, loving and selfless — that is Dad, and by all means these characteristics deserve the best in spoils!

Ulysses, a New Hotel by Ash, Opens in Baltimore

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
