March 04, 1994


You have two more weekends to practice skating at the Inner Harbor Ice Rink. Originally scheduled to close for the season on Sunday, the ice will be open an extra week. Sunday, March 13, will be the season's last day.

The rink is at Rash Field, next to the Maryland Science Center. Admission is $3.75, children 4 and under skate free. Skate rental is $1.75. Information: 385-0675.


Now that Harborplace and The Gallery are bidding adieu to smoking (as of April 1), the two shopping centers are promoting several lunchtime presentations to help smokers (and shoppers) kick the habit.

The Wednesday presentations will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at three locations simultaneously. The American Lung Association holds court on the first level of The Gallery near the elevators, the American Heart Association will be on the first level of the Pratt Street Pavilion adjacent to the center stairwell and the American Cancer Society will be on the first level of the Light Street Pavilion by Stadium Sports. Information: 332-4191. Here's what you can learn:

* Wednesday: Relaxation techniques to ease stress.

* March 16: The hazards of secondhand smoke.

* March 23: Exercises and stretching techniques that can be done at desks or workstations.

* March 30: Massage techniques.

Smokers willing to part with their smokes will be entered for a $100 gift certificate giveaway when they toss away a pack on Wednesdays for the rest of March.


Take the kids to The Gallery tomorrow for the "Razzle Dazzle Revue," a puppet show by the Beale Street puppets. Show times are at noon and 2:30 p.m. at the Greenhouse Cafe in The Gallery.

At 12:30 p.m., kids aged 12 and under can make their own finger, sock and paper-bag puppets with Gallery and Harborplace visual designer Alice Greely-Nelson. Supplies are free. Information: 332-4191.


In case your thoughts turn to the Pride of Baltimore II, the ship and its crew are basking in Venezuelan sunshine these days. Porlamar, Puerto la Cruz and La Guaira are ports of call through March 12 for the vessel, which promotes trade and business for Maryland and Baltimore.


Tonight, tomorrow night and Sunday afternoon makes this the weekend to see 'em, if this brash, in-your-face, noisy, '90s kind of entertainment is your thing. Shows today and tomorrow at The Arena. Check today's Maryland Live section for details.
