The Week's Best

THE WEEK'S BEST

October 02, 2003

Scene

Eirik Ott and Hilary Thomas, who together tour as Broken Word poetry, stop Monday at XandO on Charles Street for readings and a haiku showdown. page 30.

Outside

The 37th annual Fells Point Fun Festival offers musical performances from a variety of genres, a new and expanded beer garden and hundreds of arts and crafts items to check out. page 34.

CDs

OutKast's Dre 3000 and Big Boi are full of surprises on their double CD, "The Love Below." Each half of the duo contributes a solo disc to the set. page 26.

Eats

Red Robin restaurant in Columbia fits all the American stereotypes -- from how much Americans like hamburgers and desserts to how often they like to eat fast food. page 18.

Trips

Fall is one of the best times to visit Rehoboth Beach, Del. The weather's cooled slightly, lodging rates have plummeted, and crowds have greatly subsided. If that doesn't draw you in, the Autumn Jazz Festival might. page 22.

PICK OF THE WEEK

What: The Komen Maryland Race for the Cure

Where: Starting line is M&T Bank Stadium, 1101 Russell St.

When: Saturday, with 1-mile walk starting at 8 a.m. and 5K run / walk starting at 8:45 a.m.

Why: Because seeing the sea of pink hats and shirts sported by breast cancer survivors is nothing short of inspiring. The event also raises money for breast-cancer research.

Information: For pre-registration sites or race details, call 410-433-RACE or visit www.komenmd.org.
