The new fitness studio, located at Baltimore Crossroads @ 95, attracted hundreds to its grand opening earlier this month.
Healthy was not the word used to describe Lydia Haskell as a child. At 2, Haskell became deathly ill with pneumonia. Three years later, what started as a bruised hip following a tricycle accident turned into another near-death experience as the injury led to a severe staph infection. Her condition was so grave that a priest gave her last rites twice. That was more than 40 years ago. Today, Haskell is the definition of "healthy," having spent the last 20 years promoting a healthy lifestyle as a fitness instructor, NFL cheerleader and fitness competitor. Haskell has since took that passion to a new level with the recent opening earlier this month of The Fitness Rave at Baltimore Crossroads @ 95 in White Marsh. The 8,400-square-foot fitness …

Eight of the famous Budweiser Clydesdales made their way through Baltimore this weekend, including a stop Friday at The Avenue in White Marsh. The Clydesdales came to Maryland in three large tractor trailers from a stable located near the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Merrimack, NH.

The clydesdales were originally supposed to be at The Avenue in May close to the Preakness, but poor weather caused the appearance to be …
