March 19, 1993|By Karen Zeiler


Where can you see a descendant of Genghis Khan, or the strength of Amarjaragal, reputedly Mongolia's strongest man, not to mention the famed Flying Vargas, Chinese performers and other acts from around the world?

Answer: At the 122nd edition of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which arrives at the Baltimore Arena March 24 and continues through April 4. Tickets: Baltimore Arena box office or call TicketMaster, 962-8008. Prices: $8.50 (balcony), $11.50 (third level) and $14.50 (first and second level).

The Baltimore City Life Museums' new archaeology trail opens at 2 p.m. Sunday in Brewers' Park, 800 E. Lombard St. By following trail markers and a written guide (available at the Carroll Mansion or the archaeology center, both at 800 E. Lombard St.), you'll discover that the "Baltimore Strong Beer Brewery" was one of the city's 11 largest breweries in the 1800s, turning out 10,000 barrels of beer in 1850.

Brewers' Park has been open to the public since 1988, but the addition of historical markers creates a record of its past. Sunday's opening also marks the Center for Urban Archaeology's 10th anniversary and kicks off Maryland's first Archaeology Week -- March 20-28. Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.


You didn't miss last weekend's "For Sisters Only" expo at Festival Hall. The Blizzard of '93 snowed this event out, but you can try again tomorrow and Sunday.

Seminars on many topics, including finance, health and fashion, are planned. You can also try for autographs from actress Lonette McKee (from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow) and actor Danny Glover (from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow). Both appeared in Alex Haley's miniseries, "Queen." A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Maryland Lupus Foundation. Hours: Noon to 8 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday. Admission: $5 for adults, free for children under 5. Information: 602-8103.


Visit the Nature Co. at Harborplace this weekend and you'll notice that the enchanting woolly mammoth is gone. The sizable mechanical creature moved to other pastures Tuesday. Don't despair. A baby triceratops, expected to arrive today, will take his place until late spring, when a dimetron, or lizard-like creature, moves in, said Denise Sellman, an assistant manager at the store.
