The 11-point buck with a third antler poking out of the middle of its forehead, as if it were a unicorn? I didn't see it. The "dead" deer that suddenly came to life in the trunk of a Toyota? Missed that one, too. On the opening day of firearms season Saturday, there were enough stories — and photos — to go around at Austin's Deer Processing, not far from the BWI glide path, as we waited for the first hunters to arrive. Between writing up orders at the front of the shop and supervising the butchers out back, proprietor Keith Austin said deer season has been flat-out crazy this year, even without the unicorn and undead deer.

While sitting at the L-shaped bar inside Remington's Parts & Labor on a recent Wednesday evening, it was easy to get distracted. There was no doubt we were in a restaurant attached to a premium butcher shop: Beautiful hunks of meat were on full display, cooking on the large, open grill that greets eyes and noses upon entering. An employee prepared more meat with a gliding slicer that moved so gracefully that I could not help but wonder its cost. Jimi Hendrix's “Purple Haze,” played at a level that still encouraged conversation, added to the atmosphere's unstuffy comfort.

When Samuel Smith, major general of the Maryland militia, needed a headquarters to plot Baltimore's defense from British invaders in the summer of 1814, archaeologists believe he called on the owner of a shop that gives Butcher's Hill its name. Jacob Laudenslager leased much of what is Patterson Park today from landowner William Patterson, including a butcher's shop steps from where the park's iconic pagoda sits today. Archaeologists have uncovered a wall of that structure as they embark on a dig for a better understanding of what happened when thousands of militiamen camped along the hills of southeast Baltimore during the War of 1812.

When a friend asked me to an opening event for Young Audiences, I was caught unawares. Could Remington's newest arts and food destination be ready so soon? It seemed like only few months ago this old tire shop at 26th and Howard streets still had the unmistakable auto garage aroma. But this week the trucks were unloading the new commercial dishwashers and carpenters were fitting out the newly named Parts & Labor, the butcher shop and pub that will start serving Maryland craft beers alongside plates of local sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes later this year.

Amy and Spike Gjerde have announced a staggered spring opening for Parts & Labor, the full-service retail butcher shop and restaurant coming to Remington. The butcher shop will open first, sometime in late March, with the 84-seat restaurant scheduled for an opening in April. This is the fourth restaurant for the Gjerdes, following Artifact Coffee and Shoo-Fly and their flagship, Woodberry Kitchen, all located in Baltimore. Housed in a former car-repair and tire shop, Parts & Labor will be the new home for the intensive, whole-animal butchery program that has long been housed at Woodberry Kitchen.

If you are looking for a group of people that have an appreciation and deep love for the beauty of Howard County farmland, you need not look any further than the Mullinix family. I sit with my father on our front porch in Dayton every season as we're both rendered speechless by the beautiful sunset before us. At these moments I can't imagine anyone being so lucky, so fortunate as to enjoy this amazement. From our front porch I sit in awe of property that my family has owned for as long as I have lived.
