Around Town

Getting a good meal isn't a problem these days for Don Shula. The former coach of the Baltimore Colts and the Miami Dolphins has a chain of steakhouses across the country, including two here in Baltimore. But getting enough food apparently was a problem for college football player Don Shula. Seems when he was a class of '51 running back at Cleveland's John Carroll University, the young athlete discovered how to dig up free grub -- by crashing weddings!

Shula 'fessed up when he was in town a week ago for one of B-more's biggest feeds, Zoomerang!, at the Baltimore Zoo. This time, though, he was the one handing out the freebies, at his restaurant's table. He was serving up autographed pictures along with the tenderloin.

Bob Kowal isn't so much leaving Baltimore as taking much of it with him. Kowal's last day as president and CEO of Greater Baltimore Medical Center was June 18, and yesterday he blew this joint to set up shop in Sonoma, Calif. His new gig is owner of a bed and breakfast, the Cedar Mansion. Kowal says he won't have time to miss any of his friends here; his wine-country lodging is already booked full of them through August.
