The restaurant and entertainment center was first proposed in 2009 by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his business partner.
Construction activity at the planned MVP Entertainment has been scarce over the past several months, but a property owner said the project isn't dead yet. "It is still a possibility," said Tom Fitzpatrick, chief operating officer of Greenberg Gibbons Commercial. "[The developers] are still completing work on it." Attempts to contact the main developer, Peake Contracting Inc., were unsuccessful. A phone number listed on the company's website for its Hunt Valley headquarters is out of service. The project was first proposed in September 2009 by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his business partner Marc Rosen. In December 2010, The Baltimore Sun reported that MVP Entertainment, slated to include a restaurant, arcade, pool tables and …

I’m turning into a cliché: I have become the mom who is hard to buy for. I don’t know exactly when it happened. I have been noticing it slowly creeping up on me since my daughter Lucy was born almost four years ago, but it has become acute this Christmas season. Maybe it’s because both my kids are in hyper drive this year – at this time last year, my son Isaac was just seven months old, whereas now he’s everywhere all at once and is bursting with big personality, just like his sister. I have spent plenty of time crafting holiday gift lists for both of them, and consequently I have spent very little time thinking about what I might want. I tend to treat myself to the things I want here and there throughout the year. I don’t really need …
Brunch at Barrett’s Grill in Hunt Valley Towne Centre rivals its dinner.
Aside from the occasional coffee shop or diner, Cockeysville doesn’t have much in the way of brunch options–an egregious shortcoming Barrett’s Grill has set out to rectify. Since I enjoyed my first visit there for dinner, I was more than happy to return when I found out Barrett’s, located in the Hunt Valley Towne Centre, now serves brunch, especially considering it’s my favorite meal of the weekend. In keeping with my previous experience, the service was impeccable, and it should have been, considering my group was the first and only party to enter the restaurant at 10 a.m. I can only chalk up the empty tables to the fact that brunch is a new feature at Barrett’s, and people don’t know about it yet. So now you know. Although the …

Date nights are even better when the kids spend the night at their grandparents’ house.
Last Saturday, something highly unusual happened to me as the mother of two kids under age 4: My eyes didn’t pop open until nearly 9 a.m. No one had woken me by barking pre-dawn shouts of “Mama” from down the hall. No one cried out for whole milk at 4 a.m. There were no whiney requests to watch “Super Why” while eating cinnamon sugar toast prepared by a bleary-eyed mom. As I lay there under the covers, it took me a minute to remember why the house was so peaceful and still: My children weren’t home. The smile slowly spread across my face as I realized that my husband and I were in Hour #14 of our Extreme Date Night. That’s a phrase I just coined for when the grandparents pick up the kids for a sleepover so mom and dad can have a night and …
