I love this idea. Joe Squared at the Power Plant is throwing a 'shared holiday party' on Dec. 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. So, let's say you have an office group that wants to get together for the holidays -- but no one wants to do the planning. Or, maybe your company isn't kicking up the cash for a big party. Either way, this would be just the thing. And if you don't like each other all that much, there will be other groups of potentially cooler people to interact with. You can come with friends, family or whomever you want.

As a young boy attending elementary and middle school in Anne Arundel County, Steve Clevenger would go on school trips to see the Orioles play at Camden Yards. Thanks to a ticket program that provided seats to youngsters, Clevenger was able to see firsthand some of his favorite players, including Joe Orsulak, Cal Ripken Jr. , Mike Devereaux and Chris Hoiles. Now the tables are turned for Clevenger, a former Mount St. Joseph standout who grew up in Glen Burnie and lives in Linthicum.

Howard County police are sponsoring two holiday-themed charity events this weekend and a third event late next week. On Saturday, Dec. 14, police are participating in "Shop with a Cop" and the BearTrax holiday party, both of which are for local children. “The kids are always excited and appreciative, not just with the gifts, but with the opportunity to spend some time with an officer,” said Police Chief Bill McMahon. “I also know that the officers walk away feeling as good as the kids do.”  During "Shop with a Cop" police will spend the afternoon with school-age children, who are often in need, shopping for holiday gifts.

After several months recuperating from a bad fall, which in turn generated other health problems, it is a pleasure to once again report on our neighborhood events. While still not out of the woods, I am so very grateful for all the beautiful, compassionate, cards, messages, flowers and delicious treats from kind-hearted friends and neighbors. Guilford is a truly amazing community! Following the beautiful days of October, November has arrived with more sunny skies, albeit a touch cooler temperatures.

Celebrating the holidays with family and friends is a deepl rooted tradition -- and one that doesn't have to break the bank.Who can argue that a sumptuous dinner party is not an elegant way to entertain? But those on a limited budget need to think of alternatives.The time of the party has a bearing on expenses. Gatherings that span mealtimes, whether brunch, lunch or dinner, demand more substantial menus. But if you choose off-hours -- afternoon or early evening, for example -- simpler fare will suffice.

Surrounded by more than 50 dancers, Steven Beerman, 55, grooved with his sister, Lisa Singer, to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" last night in a large ballroom in Martin's West. The song took on special meaning for the siblings this year because Beerman, who has a severe form of mental retardation, has missed the annual Chimes and Intervals holiday party the past two years because of an illness that has required him to use a feeding tube. This year, he was able to eat pureed roast beef, mashed potatoes and vegetables at the party, which organizers say is the state's biggest for people with disabilities.

Nan Rosenthal loves to be creative with her style. In her work as an event coordinator and public relations consultant for nonprofit organizations, she must stay professional. The 72-year-old Pikesville resident looked stylishly put-together when we "Glimpsed" her at a holiday party thrown by Sascha Wolhandler and Steve Suser.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year: check your guest list twice, deck your halls and prepare to celebrate straight through to the New Year. Whatever your holiday traditions - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas - it's the season for parties that many experts say are less about outdated "rules" and more about embracing your own personal style. "My recipe for a great holiday party is ambience - it starts when you walk in," says Elle Ellinghaus of Elle Designs, whose Canton-based boutique firm planned the summer nuptials of Ravens player Torrey Smith and his bride.

"Fifty Shades" the S&M series that became a surprising runaway best-seller this year, has paid off in a big way for workers at a Random House distribution center outside Baltimore. As noted in this article in the Baltimore Sun, each of the 800 workers -- from supervisors to secretaries -- will receive a $5,000 bonus, a company official announced at the Westminster center's holiday party. Company CEO Markus Dohle said that E. L. James' trilogy -- "Fifty Shades of Grey," "50 Shades Darker" and "50 Shades Freed" -- was a major factor in the company's success this year.

We were going to package them up with information about facility rentals at other restaurants, but we never did.  So, instead, we've opened up a thread on the Baltimore Diner Facebook page. If you know of a good setup for holiday parties, tell us about it, even if it's yours.

Sitting in the kitchen, absent-mindedly decapitating gingerbread men, we tried to find sense in the madness that surrounded us."First it was multicolored chasing lights around the garage. Last year it was twinkling lights in clear plastic tubes shaped like Santa and his reindeer," she said softly. "This year? I'm not sure, but it appears to require several singing puppet-like creatures."I winced, anticipating my neighbor's yard occupied by harmonizing mannequins.Our spouses were getting out of hand.

Ted Frankel and Bill Gilmore It would be difficult for even the smartest holiday decorations to compete with the artwork that fills every corner of Ted Frankel's North Calvert Street four-story brownstone. So he and his partner, Bill Gilmore, don't even try. "This house is so complicated and busy, there really wouldn't be any point," says Frankel, who owns Sideshow, the gift shop at the American Visionary Art Museum . "The guests. That's what we decorate with," he says.
