Q:I went to BB's today and saw that it has been taken over by Zi Pani. Does anyone know if this is a permanent transition or is it temporary while Zi Pani moves locations on TJ? It was a disappointment to see BB's menu was gone, the bagels didn't taste the same, and the whole experience was different.
Here is some information from Zi Pani’s facebook page:
BIG NEWS! Zi Pani has purchased BBs Bagels and Bread located at 5866 Ballenger Creek Pike, Frederick, MD. We will be combinding the best of both cafes in the very near future. For now enjoy them both as they have been over the years. We will continue to provide the Frederick area with impeccable service and high quality products. Stay tuned for further details.
The 5th Annual Cupcake Run will be donating part of the proceeds this year to Blessings In a Backpack Frederick Schools - a great organization that provides food for elementary school children in our community who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year.
Race day is Saturday, July 26, 2014.
Contradancing this Saturday
This Saturday is the Frederick contradance. Join us at the Trinity Episcopal School (next to Harry Grove Stadium) for a night of live music and dancing. If you can smile and walk, you can contradance. If you can smile, walk, AND keep a beat, you’ll be the belle or beau of the ball!
Beginner workshop is at 7:15, the dance begins at 8. You don’t have to come with a partner. Dress for comfort, easy of dancing, and your own happiness. Sneakers are fine, but a smooth sole will move better on the floor. Flip flops are not a good choice. The gym is air conditioned, but it can still get pretty warm with all those moving bodies, so be prepared.
$10 general, $5 for students and kids under 12. Check out the link for directions and more info on the band and caller.
Any questions, feel free to email me deana(shift+2)sixgables.com
This weekend, Friday through Sunday, check the site for schedule and ticket information.
SUMMER CONCERT SERIES FEATURING COSMIC CHARLIE THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 22
Cosmic Charlie was born in the musical Mecca of Athens, Georgia. From its summer 1999 inception, the band has steadily cemented its reputation as a band that puts a unique and personal twist on the Grateful Dead catalogue, a Dead cover band for folks that are ambivalent about Dead cover bands. Rather than mimicking the Dead exactly, Cosmic Charlie chooses to tap into the Dead’s energy and style as a foundation on which to build. The result is healthy balance of creativity and tradition, and both the band and its audience are taken to that familiar edge with the sense that, music is actually being MADE here tonight.
The Summer Concert Series of musical performances has become a summer tradition in Frederick, offering a variety of genres and styles that are sure to please audiences of all ages every Sunday evening in the Baker Park Band Shell at 7 pm. In lieu of admission the Summer Concert Series Committee encourages all attendees to bring a canned food item to benefit the Frederick Food Bank.

Cirque Italia July 11-13 at The Great Frederick Fairgrounds
Many people dream of visiting Europe one day, and immersing themselves into its culture. You will have the chance to experience a traditional event enjoyed in every village, town, and city across the “Old World:” A GENUINE, EUROPEAN TRAVELING CIRCUS WITH A UNIQUE FEATURE NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE IN AMERICA. Cirque Italia has gathered circus performers from around the world for this year’s production. The Cirque Italia owner decided to start a NEW CONCEPT in America with a TRAVELING 35,000 GALLON WATER STAGE!!!
This 40 foot Broadway circular style stage is 4 feet high and contains 35,000 gallons of water inside. During the show, audience members will be surprised when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS DANCE WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!
Some of the performances include: COCO THE CLOWN from Argentina who rides the WORLD’S SMALLEST BICYCLE; contortion on top of a 8 foot coat rack; a HULA HOOPING Balancing Act AROUND A RING OF WATER; Juggling Fusco Twins, Guinness Book World Record Juggling five clubs for the unsurpassed time of 57 minutes; A MERMAID that will dazzle little girls’ hearts while swinging above their heads; a Verticali Act ALL THE WAY FROM ITALY singing UPSIDE DOWNand more generations of circus families sharing with other families their talents from around the world. You won’t believe your eyes when you see the 360 LASERMAN ACT! A truly magical illusion! Blades of laser light are hand-manipulated right in front of your eyes! Watch the laws of physics crumble when the performer actually “holds” a beam of light in his hand, splits it into two, then bends it and spins it around like a light saber! He even throws the beams over your head, up into the tent and creates blasts of excitement!
Come spend TWO hours with this exciting SPECTACULAR WATER AND ARTIST CIRCUS COLLABORATION! CIRQUE ITALIA is presented under a magnificent White & Blue Big Top Tent that is 110 feet in circumference and soars 70 feet into the air, where every seat is so close you’ll think you are in the Circus. It’s truly "Memories for a lifetime for Children of All Ages".
