Big Anniversaries in Baltimore’s food community

The food industry is notoriously tough, restaurants come and go in a blink of an eye so when a restaurant celebrates 25 years in business that is a true accomplishment. What do you say to two local grocers who are celebrating respectively 70 and 100 years in business here in Baltimore?

Today, Chef Nancy Longo’s Pierpoint Restaurant is 25 years old.  Very early on, her commitment to raise awareness of what was going on in the seafood industry, her celebrity chef fundraisers to Save the Bay set the bar for the current up-and-coming chefs to achieve.  I’m sure there will be lots of celebrating tonight at her Fells Point restaurant.

Eddie’s of Roland Park will be celebrating 70 years as the neighborhood grocer.  Join them during their anniversary week, October 12 – 18 as they celebrate this monumental anniversary with special events and in-store promotions.  These include culinary demonstrations, a meet and greet with local vendors, free birthday cake, one-day sales throughout the week, in-store surprises and more.  The 70th anniversary celebration will be capped by an in-store food festival at the Charles Street location on Saturday, October 18.

Since 1914 DiPasquale’s has been in the heart of Baltimore, offering up Italian specialties for its legion of patrons.  On October 12, 2014 DiPasquale’s will celebrate their 100th anniversary (anniversario) from 1 to 6 p.m. at 3700 Gough Street.  A $10 donation to benefit the Luigi DiPasquale Scholarship Fund gets you into the party with food by DiPasquale, DiPinoteca, Fired Up Pizza and beverages provided by Bacchus Imports. There will be performances by Elio Scacco and Biagio Bucaro, games and you can even win a Vespa.

Congrats to all three for your continued success, constant support of the local community and being a part of what makes Baltimore great.
