Second Acts

This weekend is the second weekend in October and in HoCo that’s become sort of a big deal. On Saturday Alice Anna kicks off a new season of the Second Saturday Café at Oliver’s Carriage House in Columbia Town Center. The Second Saturday Café has been hosting local music acts over the fall and winter months for over ten years.

According to this article by Anthony Sclafani in Explore Howard, Alice Anna is “five-member, Baltimore-based, piano-rock” band.

“Alice Anna exemplifies the type of fringe band 2nd Saturday specializes in bringing to town. The group is proving popular in the region, and the series is giving the musicians a forum and potential new audience in a different locale.”

Oliver’s Carriage House is a unique stone barn originally constructed in 1830. The building was renovated in 1977 after it became home to the Kittamaqundi Community Church. It’s a pretty cozy place to catch live music. The café also sells beer and wine with all proceeds go to support Agape House. Tickets are twenty bucks and you can make reservations online.

The Second Sunday Market in Ellicott City will also be held this weekend. According to an email I received from Kimberly Kepnes today, this months market will include Nathans Famous French Country Breads, exotic vegetables from Tersiguels, fresh meats and eggs from Down-to-Earth Farm, jams, jellies, nuts, pork barbeque, and lots of other good stuff.

Since this Sunday is a bye week for the Ravens you won’t have to worry about missing the game either.

I’ll second that!
