DINAH, IS THERE anyone fin-ah? Talk about fine! In honor of Sister Kathleen Feeley, president of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland for the past 20 years who's retiring in June of '92, one of America's best known entertainers, Dinah Shore, will present an evening of musical tribute at the Meyerhoff. All the arrangements for this mighty fine fete, slated for Nov. 23, are being made by the always fine Margaret McManus, wife of ABC sportscaster Jim McKay. The event's likely to be a sellout so call early for reservations, 783-8000.
MEANWHILE, since Hall-of-Famer Jim Palmer was spied having din-din at Da Mimmo's Monday night with a big-league TV producer, does that mean news of a new television deal for Jimbo is imminent? Stay tuned . . . Talk about busy! With the addition of his "Business -- Money" segments increased to three times a week on WBAL-TV, money maven Julius Westheimer can be seen, heard, or read, 20 times a week in the Big Crab. That's more times than most people see their spouses! . . . The 19-year-old actor/singer, Brian Evans, who can currently be seen in New Line Cinema's "Book of Love," will sing the National Anthem at Saturday night's Orioles game. Evans is in town to appear at a seminar aimed at other young talent.
IF YOU'D LIKE to learn how to "Communicate Your Message to the Media," you may want to check out Susan White Bowden's program tonight at Corbi's of Little Italy. Call 837-2300 for reservations . . . WPOC's Sheila Silverstein's off to San Francisco to pick up the Billboard Promotion Director of the Year Award for country format.
TABLE HOPPING: When the original Fifth Dimension was in town, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. dropped by Bill Bateman's Cub Hill restaurant for some tasty ribs and were so impressed with the fare, they urged the former Club Venus manager to open a spot in California. Closer to home, expect Bateman to open a rib-and-wings carryout at Taylor and Oakleigh in October . . . Band members from the Robert Palmer group dined at Sabatino's in Little Italy after their Merriweather performance. The stunning ladies accompanying them? Former Penthouse Pet Divina Celeste and UMBC's Terri Stanton, who were spied in the front row and invited out with the group.
CLASSROOM REUNION: A musical extravaganza is planned for Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Hippo to celebrate a reunion of all the folks who once hung out at the Classroom Bar and Finnegan's Wake Night Club on Charles Street, a one-of-a-kind joint that is now the Helmand restaurant. All the bands that played there and the barkeeps that poured there, and hopefully, all the people that hung out (and were hung over) there will show up for this funky gathering. Tickets are $12.50 at the door or $10 in advance. Call Michael Lipman at 922-5428.
FRANCES D. HOOKS, National Coordinator of WIN (Women in NAACP) as well as aide to her husband Benjamin Hooks, executive director of the NAACP, will be the keynote speaker tonight during the "Gift of Life" safety belt awards dinner at Martin's West tonight. WJZ-TV's Sandra Pinckney will emcee.
AND FINALLY, you might say there was definitely animal attraction involved for Cheryl Brown and fiance Wade Johnson, who'll tie the knot this -- yikes! -- Friday the 13th at the Clarence Mitchell Courthouse on Calvert Street. Brown, who's a veterinary technician at the Baltimore City Bureau of Animal Control, met and fell in love with Johnson, who's "animal warden" there, during the ah, dog days of summer. We wish them luck!
