Needles and Threads of Ruxton

A shop offering items to be made at home.

Reviewed By raoulhood - Towson, Maryland

Small but exciting shop in which they are working with great passion. It is pure embroidery on thematic and seasonal periods done with passion and long experience. Leaving Graul's son I was attracted by the shop window.

Mrs. Julia Greer me kindly accompagato the visit with explanations in a saga of colors and memories where the pleasure is joined to creative colors.

From there your mind transcends the mere physical fact and rises in your inner world of ancient visions of childhood fantasies that affected your subconscious .... and return to smil again.

Even the Christmas tree in the White House has been decorated by Julia and of which she is proud.

Was leaving Baltimore vacation & was suggested to go here (Babe Ruth Museum), I would give this place a 5 star if they had included something for the 9-11 fire dept/rescue as they should! The place was not far off the Hwy behind a building, was much larger & more informative than you expect, the people there do want you to enjoy yourself & will go out of the way to explain things! GO!

We stopped by for the Peach Festival this weekend. The pancake breakfast was very tasty. My favorite part of the entire trip was the market there. They sell fresh fruit and vegetables, homemade baked goods, jams and jellies as well as craft goods.

Reviewed By Julie S - Towson, Maryland, United States

Locals know Graul's as a local store. Brides know that Graul's is a top place to order your cake from. (Unbelievable bakery) But I want to share a catering experience we had. I had to host family and friends for a funeral wake. Grau's is close and professional. I had never hosted anything like this before and they walked me through everything step by step. How much i would need, how it could be served. Graul's delivered right on time and everything was perfect! They thought of everything. We ordered "ring sandwiches" which were maybe 12" in diameter, braided bread with different fillings. They looked so nice set out and tasted delicious. All the other "salads" came ready to go with serving utensils, etc. They arranged platters of bite size treats for desserts, brownies, lemon squares, etc. But the nicest thing was, the driver left a small box in our kitchen all wrapped up filled with lemon bars with a hand written note from Graul's saying that they heard the lemon bars were out favorite and these were a gift from them with their condolences on our loss. Sounds silly, but that meant so much to me at the time.
I do shop at Graul's esp. their bakery (yum!) deli (fresh!) meats and fish. I'm loyal!

My husband and I have been to a few climbing gyms, and after moving to the area, we decided to check this one out. The staff is outstanding and very knowledgeable. They have an awesome gear shop area, and so many routes an bouldering areas to keep you busy for HOURS. It's the priciest gym we've found, but you are surely getting a lot for your money.

Cinemark Towson

This theater is convenient walking distance from the Towson Town Center mall and the Sheraton Baltimore North hotel.

Theater is large and very clean and has fantastic stadium seating including chairs that recline almost flat with footrests with the touch of a button. Each seat has a table top for food, and they sell all kinds of good food there including pizza and fries.

A bunch of high quality restaurants are clustered adjoining the theater and a block away at the mall. Great place.

Reviewed By nholmes2016 - Melbourne, Australia

Just posting a quick review of the terrible experience at the Apple Store in Towson town center. I would avoid if at all possible. The staff are the worst customer service representatives on the planet. Rude and lazy and unhelpful. The Store is empty and the wait to see a specialist is over 20 mins to get something off the shelf. I would recommend Best Buy or any other outlet of Apple products. Unless you like standing around and wasting your time.

SECU Arena

Reviewed By PHLee7ca - Ellicott City, Maryland

We (7 of us) attended the Baltimore Blast arena soccer game on Saturday. Very nice, intimate arena (5,000 capacity) located on the Towson University campus. Good concessions (lemonade, pretzels, dogs, nachos, beer, chicken tenders, etc). Lots of free parking...some lots require a longer walk. Lots of families and they celebrated girl guides, scouts and minor soccer teams before the game. Our niece’s school choir played the national anthem before the game. The Blast won in OT this evening...very fast and exciting game.
