26th Annual Holiday Brunch

A full house at Martin’s West, as 100 Black Men of Maryland held its yearly holiday brunch.

Guests enjoyed good food, good music and good company.
No need to worry about missing the day’s big Ravens game. It was there, too.
Then, there was also shopping – holiday and otherwise – to be done, courtesy a whole lot of vendors set up just down the hall.
