The Week's Best

THE WEEK'S BEST

October 23, 2003

Music

Meshell Ndegeocello's new album, Comfort Woman, is a departure from her deeply political previous work, but it has a warm sound, with each track melting into the next. page 27.

Outside

It's fall again -- and approaching the perfect time to see the annual change of the leaves. Check out our guide to the best places locally and regionally to see the autumnal kaleidoscope. page 36.

Stage

Gregory Harrison -- who since Trapper John M.D. has worked as an actor in film, TV and stage, as well as a producer and director -- comes to the Lyric starring as Billy Flynn in the touring production of Chicago. page 14.

Eats

Cuba is the starting point for Little Havana, inspired by one of the owners' years in the Florida keys. The menu is unique, but the big draw is the restaurant's deck overlooking the Inner Harbor -- as well as its mojitos. page 18.

Trips

Hershey, Pa., has a number of treats planned for this year's Halloween celebration, including free admission to HersheyPark for the holiday weekend. page 24.

What: The Baltimore Dog Festival, featuring the fourth annual Howl-a-Ween Fancy Dress Dog Competition

Where: Baltimore Can Company, 2400 Boston St.

When: Saturday, noon-6 p.m. (Rain date is Sunday; same hours.)

Why: Because you can see live music by Al Walsh (acoustic rock) and Captain Quint (a Buffett cover band) and visit a kid's area, party tents and doggie vendors. Not to mention, how often do you get to see dogs in costume en masse?
