Ladies in gowns of sequins and taffeta, with dapper men at their sides, swept onto the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall mezzanine for a sophisticated soiree before the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's 19th annual Holiday Pops concert. The 110 guests enjoyed cocktails, crab dip and holiday cookies at a VIP reception held by the Junior League of Baltimore.

The Junior League of Baltimore was throwing a Preview Party for its annual Boutique Warehouse Sale. As guests sipped their glasses of wine, they could try on shoes and a cute little dress, or maybe nab a darling little outfit for a child or grandchild from many of Baltimore's best boutiques - at prices that were reduced up to 70 percent off their original cost.
