This time of year, it's possible never to cook on weekends -- just graze from church supper to firehouse fund-raiser to varsity bake sale. The food is terrific, the company interesting and the causes worthy. Best of all, part of the cost of these dinners is tax deductible! Ain't philanthropy grand?
The Verse Is Yet To Come Department: The Lite Circle presents a Friday Poetry Cafe at Something Special Coffeeshop, 504 Main St., Laurel. Open readings will be held every Friday in October from 8 p.m. to closing. Information: Lite Circle, (410) 719-7792, or Something Special Coffeehouse, (301) 497-2324. Incidentally, the word coffee can be spelled k-a-u-p-h-y, without a single letter found in the correct spelling. English spelling rules are appalling!
