Gordon Ramsay, Nate Berkus Bring Magic to Old Ellicott City!
This afternoon I was able to be in Ellicott City to see the reveal of all the secret work that’s been happening this magical week. I listened to Gordon Ramsay accurately describe our town, the town he said he now feels a part of. He said he knew right away there was some hurt still, but that overpowering this was hope and community. He talked about neighbors helping neighbors and I remembered back to the aftermath of both floods and how the whole county came to help. He talked about the resiliency of our people and the bright future ahead. He complimented our business owners and said they inspired him. His company has helped rebrand and renovate three establishments: The Phoenix (now The Phoenix Brewing Co.) Little Market Cafe and Jaxon Edwin (now Jaxon Edwin Social House). He brought internationally famous designer, Nate Berkus, to town and he lent his design skills to create three beautiful windows about our past, present, and future. And he left us message on those windows and signed his name. There is new landscaping and flowers, and a whole lot of people with smiles in town. Ellicott City, you deserve the magic of this week, you are well loved and now so many more people will know about the town when the show airs - stay tuned for that date, but later this year. Hearts are full in old EC. Come see why. #LoveOEC #stronger9B #working4md
