For Baltimoreans of a certain age, the name "Admiral's Cup" conjures up images of boozy Fells Point nights and dirty bathrooms. The legendary dive bar closed in 2007, reopening last fall under the ownership of Kali's Restaurant Group, the company that oversees Fells Point neighbors Mezze and Kali's Court. Old fans looking to relive their youths at the bar might be disappointed; thanks to a face lift, Admiral's Cup has lost its gritty edge. With a focus on local beer and capable takes on bar-friendly food made with local ingredients, the restaurant feels fresh and current.

Belvedere Square, with its hip artisanal vendors, has earned its stripes as a food-lovers' destination. The area just to its south, now home to a handful of casual, capable eateries, is poised to piggyback on that success. The newest of these restaurants is Flight American Fusion Restaurant & Bar. Opened in late August, Flight is a casual spot with an interesting menu, including a wide variety of vegetarian dishes and flavors inspired by the many different cuisines found in America.

In October, the Admiral's Cup in Fells Point opened its storied doors for the first time since 2007. On the Saturday of its opening weekend, the renovated bar was packed with patrons, most clutching Bud Lights and watching college football on the multiple flat-screen TVs illuminating the dark room. A group of us - all who had missed the former dive bar's heyday of the '80s and '90s - noticed the scene from the street and were lured inside. After a couple of rounds, we couldn't figure out the appeal.

Severn's defense, goalkeeping and the timely scoring of Eddy Shoop have helped the girls soccer team get off to a quick start this season. That same formula helped the No. 4 Admirals win again on Wednesday. Shoop scored late in the game and the Severn defense was strong once again in front of Alayah Hightower in a 1-0 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference victory over No. 12 Notre Dame Prep. The Admirals won their second straight game and sixth in seven tries.

WASHINGTON -- On July 7, 1992, Sean C. O'Keefe's first day as Navy secretary, Adm. Frank B. Kelso II, chief of naval operations, walked into his office in the Pentagon and said, "For the good of the naval service, I am prepared to resign."Mr. O'Keefe replied: "For the good of the naval service, I want you to stay. You owe it to the institution to put this behind you."At the center of their blunt exchange was the 1991 Tailhook scandal, a shameful chapter of sexual harassment against Navy women who were made to run a gantlet of pawing males at an aviators' convention in a Las Vegas hotel.

No. 1 McDonogh (5-0, 2-0 conference) broke a 4-4 tie with goals from Megan Whittle and Miranda McCoy in the final minute of the second half.

Former Democratic National Chairman Robert S. Strauss, who passed away Wednesday at a robustly lived 95, was a happy political warrior whose talent and energies took him far afield from his chosen playground, even to Moscow where he served as the first American ambassador after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He was a rare combination of straight-talker and schmoozer who endeared himself to friend and foe alike, to the point that when he left Russia in 1993, he was given a huge vodka-flowing reception at the Russian Embassy in Washington.

The place was the U.S. House of Representatives. The time was the mid-1980s. I was a relative newcomer to Congress from California, and the Republican conference was hosting President Ronald Reagan. The president, beloved by the members, was coasting through a question-and-answer session, fielding the mostly "softball" questions with his legendary charm. Then Helen Delich Bentley, even more of a newcomer than I, stepped to the microphone. Her question was typical Bentley - blunt and reflective of the interests of the blue collar folks she represented.
