Best Bets This Week


eagle in nestIt is winter, even though your thermometer may be telling you otherwise, the perfect time to purchase vegetable seeds and oogle those gorgeous perennials in the catalogs; and if you’ve ever considered adding chickens to the mix (so in right now) Adkins Arboretum is offering a Homegrown Series beginning this Friday. The three sessions include Backyard Chickens, Beginning Vegetable Gardening, and Growing With Kids. You can sign up for one, two, or all three.

Here’s a last minute addition:  Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is looking for volunteers to assist in their annual mid-winter eagle survey this Thursday. The eagle count is conducted in two parts. The non-roost count, or morning count, takes place from 10:00 – 10:30 am, while the roost count, or evening count, takes place from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. Weather is looking perfect. More info below.

If you are a KISS fan – don’t miss the tribute band, Rock Bottom, at the Avalon on Friday. Rock’n roll, hon.

If you’re a fan of a slightly different style of costumed entertainment, we believe there are still tickets available for Saturday’s War of 1812 Ball, at the Miles River Yacht Club, dinner included.

Time traveling in Talbot County.
