AROUND THE INNER HARBOR

November 12, 1993|By Karen Zeiler

In yesterday's Around the Inner Harbor column, the Baltimor Harbor Endowment's phone number should have been 732-8155.

The Sun regerts the errors.

BUY A BRICK

You can have people walk on your name for years if you buy a brick from the Baltimore Harbor Endowment. The bricks -- engraved with your name -- will make up parts of the Baltimore Waterfront Promenade, a continuous walkway that will stretch 7.5 miles around the harbor when completed. Waterfront residents and business owners are invited to Bohager's Bar and Grill, 515 S. Eden St. from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday for a reception aimed to raise community awareness of the campaign. Three new brick engraving sites include Conway Street, Little Italy and Canton Waterfront Park. Check out the promenade at Fells Point to see what the finished product looks like. To buy a brick, call the Baltimore Harbor Endowment at 732-7155. Cost: $60 and $100.

CINDERELLA ON ICE

A glass slipper, not an ice skate, leads theprince to Cinderella after her hasty departure from the Grand Ball in Dorothy Hamill's production of "Cinderella -- Frozen in Time." Ms. Hamill's version of the classic fairy tale features some homespun talent -- skater Jeff Merica and choreographers Tim Murphy and Nathan Birch, all of Maryland. The show opened yesterday and runs until Nov. 14 at the Baltimore Arena. Tickets are $25, $13.50 and $9.50 and are available at all TicketMaster outlets and Hecht's stores. Call 481-SEAT.

FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION

Check out some of Charm City's residential charm. The Baltimore City Life Museums have chartered a bus to shuttle you past rowhomes in Federal Hill, Union Square, Bolton Hill, Reservoir Hill, Patterson Park and Ednor Gardens from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow. A second tour is scheduled for Nov. 20. "Those Old Placid Rows" showcases 150 years of rowhouse styles. The tour departs from the Carroll Mansion, 800 E. Lombard St. Admission is $10 for BCLM members and $15 for nonmembers. Reservations are required. Call 396-3279.

TURKEY DAY PREVIEW

Before you buy that 20-pound bird, sign up for a free cooking lesson from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow at the 1840 House, 800 E. Lombard St. Food historian Sue Latini will prepare a Thanksgiving feast the old-fashioned way -- without instant potatoes or ready-made desserts. Watch her make turkey, sauerkraut, mincemeat pie, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. (This is a demonstration-only workshop; recipes will be distributed.) Reservations: 396-3279.

VETERANS DAY CRUISE

Take part in a salute to veterans -- on a vintage World War II Liberty ship. (Only two are still afloat.) Proceeds from today's luncheon cruise on the SS John W. Brown will go to the restoration of the ship. (Its regular visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays at Pier 1, Clinton Street in Canton.) The ship leaves at 11 a.m. from Pier 5 at the Fairfield docks on Childs Street. Boarding begins at 10 a.m. The two-hour cruise takes in the Korean War Memorial, Fort McHenry and the Vietnam War Memorial. The cost is $25, which includes a buffet )) lunch. Tickets are available at the pier. Afterward, visitors are invited to tour the former USS Sanctuary, a hospital ship that treated casualties off the coast of Vietnam for four years. The ship, which is under renovation to house the homeless, is docked at Childs Street. Information: 661-1550.
