Here comes the bridal show

Since this is a Bride's Guide issue, we just had to include an item of interest to the marrying kind.

Brides-to-be, grooms-to-be, brides-and-grooms-who-want-to-be, and their mothers, of course, will want to check out the bridal show at the Turf Valley Hotel and Country Club Jan. 21. Not just a bridal show, it's a big festival for the betrothed. There will be displays of serving pieces -- china, silverware, crystal, etc. -- a dinner and a fashion show. Those of you willing to pay an extra fee can stay overnight at the hotel and get up to a morning of seminars on wedding-day beauty (no big hair), wedding etiquette (don't sit Uncle Willie next to Cousin Doris), and even interior decorating and table settings for your future love nest.

Turf Valley Hotel and Country Club Bridal Festival, 2700 Turf Valley Road, Ellicott City, Jan. 21, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets $14. Overnight package ($74 for two) includes Continental breakfast and bridal seminars on Jan. 22. Call (410) 465-1500 for reservations.


I've been thinking lately about trading in the old Dodge for something sportier. Maybe something that doesn't have a lot of dents in it. If you, too, are in the market for a new car or you just like gawking at automobiles, head over to Festival Hall for the International Auto Show, Jan. 15-23. More than 38 manufacturers will be on hand, showing off the 1994 models. Not only will they let you look at and drool over the new cars, they'll even let you sit in them. Here's a fun tip: Take a camera along and have a friend take your picture sitting behind the wheel. Mail copies of the photo to friends and family and let everyone think you're driving a new Porsche.

International Auto Show, Festival Hall, 1 W. Pratt St., Jan. 15-23. Show times are noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays and Martin Luther King's birthday (Jan. 17), noon to 7 p.m. Sundays, and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays. Admission is $6; $3 for ages 12 and under. Call (410) 659-7144.

Off to see the wizard

Today is the last day to see "The Wizard of Oz" at the Lyric Opera House. After that, Dorothy and Toto are taking the next tornado out of here and heading back to Kansas. The popular MGM movie is on stage complete with flying monkeys, talking trees and the yellow brick road. And yes, Dorothy will sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

"The Wizard of Oz," Lyric Opera House, 140 W. Mount Royal Ave., Today, 3 p.m. Tickets $12.50 to $30, $5 off for children under 12. Call (410) 625-1400.

If you have an event for this calendar, please send typed information and a photograph (if possible) five weeks in advance to Here & There, Sun Magazine, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, Md. 21278.
