Pilates House opens in Fells Point.

OPEN

Pilates House: A three-day celebration for the opening of Pilates House in Fells Point will take place from October 4–6. The debut will include refreshments, sales, and of course, plenty of pilates classes. And with its attached boutique, you can shop various products from clothing to beauty essentials before or after an intense workout.

Tortuga: Local boutique owner and TV costumer (see: Veep and House of Cards) Julie Bent has found permanent digs for her mobile shop in Lauraville. You may have spotted Tortuga at various pop-up events throughout the city—selling artisanal finds from independent makers. "It’s our mission to discover and bring to Baltimore beautifully designed goods," Bent says. "We hope that our thoughtfully curated collection resonates with you." Join in and discover what Tortuga is all about at a grand opening gathering on October 19th.

EVENTS

You’ll hear all about Meger’s research and gain insight on the depth of McCardell’s contribution.
