Around town

One of the hottest places in town this summer is a cool new Fells Point eatery. Baltimore's movers and shakers are making the scene at Kali's Court. On a recent Friday night, a quick once-over of the premises produced sightings of bakery baron John Paterakis; his former daughter-in-law Annette Paterakis with her fiance, Hiko Osterchrist, infomercial godfather Mike Lasky and wife Kelly; party-planning pros Paul and Dorothy Wolman, Neighborcare's Renee and Stanton Ades; political-powerhouse pair Tom Koch and Frances Reaves; and PR whiz Amy Elias. And that was just in the downstairs dining room!

Speaking of hot spots, Turkey Joe Trabert's home in Hamilton was the place to be last weekend, as he and wife Sherry threw their annual summer bash. The theme this year? Toga, toga, toga! WQSR-radio's Linda Sherman, Commander Jim Morton (formerly of WFBR-radio), and local artist Mark Adams were among the eclectic crowd of wrapped revelers.

Turkey Joe asserts that there were no food fights at his fun fest. But he does admit that while the evening "started out Roman, it was more 'Animal House' " by the end.
