PARTIED OUT: Bubbles, late- night party person and entertainment consultant, has left the nightclub business (he was most recently at Orpheus) and is hoping to turn the town on its, er, ear. The Bee has teamed up with a New York restaurant consultant, Joan Koch, to open up shopping mall carts which will sell nifty earrings for just $5. Called Fabulous, the first cart opens the day before Thanksgiving at Towson Town Center with Bubbles at the helm.

SHIPSHAPE: The Queen Elizabeth 2, the flagship of Cunard Line, drew quite a few oglers when it docked last weekend at Dundalk Marine Terminal. Some invited guests on board included World Travel's Lourdes Morales and Jennifer Vitale, who are coordinating a trip on the QE2 in July as a fund-raiser for Baltimore's Operation Sail Ltd. The five-day cruise will celebrate July 4 in style, sailing round trip from New York to Bermuda, returning for the Quincentennial July 4 celebration in the heart of New York's harbor! On board, you'll be entertained by Dizzy Gillespie, Marilyn Horne and Marvin Hamlisch, to name a few. For each cabin booked, $100 will be donated to Op Sail. Call (410) 252-5020.

QUICK STUFF: The Baltimore Blast's Doug Neely and David Eise will be celebrity judges for the title of Maryland's premiere waiter/waitress at the Hyatt Hotel on Dec. 4. . . . Talk about creative! Pro Golf's Greg Fudge tells us his Severna Park store is asking people to donate their old golf shoes to the first annual "Pro Golf Shoes for the Homeless Campaign." His store will recondition them by plugging up the holes left by the spikes, and then give them to Christopher's Place, a shelter for homeless men in Baltimore. Plus, if you turn in your old ones and buy a new pair, you'll get a discount. . . . Stouffer's General Manager, Alan Villaverde, has been selected by the Maryland Hotel and Motel Association as Maryland's Hotelier of the Year for '91.

KID STUFF: Uffington Productions, a new Baltimore-based company, has released its first project, a recording of children's bedtime stories entitled, "A Story for Every Season," available on cassette. Written by Baltimore children's writer Ruth Fox, the stories are narrated by Trish McDonald.
