WHEN MEMBERS of the Anne Arundel Rug Hookers meet each month at the Severna Park branch library, they practice a true American art form that can be traced back more than a century. In the mid-19th century, the average housewife who wanted to furnish her home with rugs often had to make them herself because rugs were an expensive luxury. Inventive and industrious women used whatever they could find. There were always old garments, too worn out to wear, but too good to throw away and, if the woman lived on a farm, there were plenty of empty burlap seed and grain bags.

A crowd estimated at 30,000 poured into the old Baltimore stadium on 33rd Street as the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University lacrosse teams prepared to face off to earn a trip to the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. It was the second time they had met, and many believed there was no need for this game, the culmination of an eight-team playoff system. Hopkins was already considered the best team in the nation after going undefeated in 10 previous games, including postseason victories over St. John's and the Crescents.

If, like the Liz Lemon, you look for any possible distraction from Valentine's Day, perhaps a celebration of Anna Howard Shaw Day is in order. The fictional character's equally fictional holiday celebrates a very real preacher and doctor, born 166 years ago today in Newcastle-on-Tyne. Shaw was a polymath who broke boundaries, becoming both an M.D. and the country's first ordained female methodist minister. Raised in England, Massachusetts and Michigan, Shaw remembers in her autobiography an early experience around age 9 or 10 that shaped her later drive to challenge defined roles.

Appletini. Few words make bartender Doug Atwell shudder as much as that one. Atwell is part-owner and head mixologist at Rye, a new bar in Fells Point that specializes in craft cocktails, the bar equivalent of gourmet meals. These drinks are made with fresh and regional ingredients, homemade syrups and quality spirits. The appletini is the antithesis of that, more often than not made with a bottled mix. It is to cocktails what Rachael Ray is to fine dining and Skrillex is to music.

For over a year, a group of local bartenders have been informally meeting as Baltimore's first guild for mixologists. They've been operating under the radar for most of that time, only quietly launching a website a month ago. But they will make their big entrance Sunday with their inaugural event, a fundraiser and cocktails showcase at B&O American Brasserie. Dubbed the Baltimore Bartenders' Guild, the group includes some of the most well-known bartenders in the city and some of the most high-profile - Brendan Dorr of B&O, Adrian Ross-Boom of Wit & Wisdom , and Doug Atwell of Rye . So far, there are 15 members from 11 bars, including one that hasn't opened yet. It is a working trade group, one where its members talk shop and liquor vendors sometimes present new products.
