It’s hard to find a quiet spot almost no one knows of these days. With social media and communication technology, those spots we thought we’d been lucky enough to discover, we quickly find have been common knowledge to everyone but us. And maybe that’s what we’ll find here. These hidden gems throughout the Mid-Shore are, for all intents and purposes, right under your very nose. And maybe we’ve shot ourselves in the foot by divulging these secret-to-us locations. Nevertheless,
We look behind the scenes at the Paul Reed Smith factory in Stevensville, where world-famous guitars are built for some of the biggest names in music. Some of the most treasured guitars being played by musicians today are being built from a factory on Kent Island. Carlos Santana, Neal Schon, Mark Holcomb, John McLaughlin, Zach Myers, Mark Tremonti, and Alex Lifeson, to name a few, all currently play Paul Reed Smith (PRS) guitars.

One of today’s popular buzzwords is “repurpose.” People find new purposes for everything, from furniture to wine bottles, housewares and even homes. Hidden away within the outskirts of Easton is a perfect study in home repurposing, 510 Diamond St. This address is appropriate, as it truly is a “diamond in the rough,” and was not converted from a barn into a personal residence until 1972. This home was further repurposed just four years ago when Kevan and Chris Full, the home’
Perfect drinks for a day at the races … or the bar If you’re not one of the lucky people attending the 143rd Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Raceway on May 19 in Baltimore, then perhaps you’ll be just as lucky if you’re perched on one of Jennifer Steven’s barstools at Theo’s Steaks, Sides and Spirits in St. Michaels.

In a YouTube video of the 1938 Pimlico Special, people run through the infield at Pimlico Race Course to get a better look at the race between Seabiscuit and 1937 Triple-Crown winner War Admiral. The race is tense. The announcer sounds excited at the beginning of the race when Seabiscuit, whose career (like the horse) was slow to start, takes an early lead.
