When Frank Sinatra sang "New York, New York," he encouraged attentive listeners to start "spreading the news." Well, at Royalicious Bagel Bakery in Charles Town, start spreading the cream cheese! This café/deli/bakery, which has only been open a few months, at 126 Patrick Way in the Walmart plaza, has brought a taste of New York City to the area.

A beehive is an unimpressive structure. Rising less than four feet, its squat linear design stands in stark contrast to the gentle curves of the natural environment that is so dependent upon the efforts of the sixty thousand or so inhabitants. Gently and quickly, a beekeeper in a white protective full-body suit, which more closely resembles a visiting alien, raises the cover to inspect the contents and marvel at the efforts of the all-female work crew—working steadily to create honey, store pollen, and most importantly, raise more bees.

Serving Sensational, Seasonal Cuisine
By Debra Cornwell
Let's talk Mexican food. What comes to mind? If you're like me, I think of the typical fare that graces many Mexican restaurants found in this country—a plate of enchiladas, tacos, or burritos, symmetrically aligned and all covered with some sort of unidentifiable sauce. There may be a bland side of rice and refried beans to accompany it, and you go home stuffed, but not necessarily satisfied.

Hula hoops have been around for centuries. Yes, those plastic hoops that can be twirled around the waist, neck, or limbs have been part of the world's culture since about 500 B.C. They were traditionally made from willow, rattan, grapevines, and stiff grasses. Fast forward a bit: the lovable rings officially gained international popularity in the late 1950s, when a California company called Wham-O made the hoops out of Marlex plastic. You could say the idea caught on; the company sold more than twenty-five million hoops in less than four months.
