I had one of those "think it and it happens" moments this winter. On a walk to the post office, I passed the Roland Park Shopping Center. I remembered the old Roland Park Bakery & Deli and the fabulous banana cream pie its owner, Anita Ward, once made there. She moved her deli to Hampden three years ago and closed it in November. I wondered where she was and what she was doing. The day she closed in Hampden, she said she had some options, but that she was first going to California for Thanksgiving.

See who ruled during disco's last big summer, via Billboard's Hot 100 chart archive. 10. "She Believes in Me," Kenny Rogers The Gambler? In 1979? At his peak. About as far from disco as one gets, "She Believes in Me" was a No. 1 country hit and written by Steve Gibb (unrelated to the Bee Gees Gibbs). 9. "Shake Your Body" (Down to the Ground)," the Jacksons The Jacksons' best disco-era effort. 8. "Chuck E.'s In Love," Rickie Lee Jones Jones' biggest hit (she would go on to win the Best New Artist Grammy in January 1980)

Anita Ward gave her loyal customers big hugs as she served them lunch Friday, Nov. 8. Ward closed her longtime eatery, Roland Park Bakery and Deli, at the end of Friday, after 30 years. "It's just time," she said. "I'm tired of getting up at 3 in the morning. I'm ready for a change. " Ward said she is selling the business to longtime customer Dave Sherman, who plans to turn it into more of a cafe serving soups salads, sandwiches and hamburgers, among other menu items. Ward said the cafe would be open for dinner, whereas Roland Park Bakery and Deli only served breakfast and lunch.

Anita Ward says she's not closing the Roland Park Bakery and Deli — she's moving it. But in a town as location-loyal and change-adverse as Baltimore, news that the deli would be leaving the historic Roland Park Shopping Center after 27 years has drawn reactions that run a fairly narrow gamut: from "tragic" to "terrible. " Or, rather, "terrible, terrible, terrible," in the words of Tish Brooks, lunching at the deli earlier this week with her daughter and granddaughter. "I just hate to see Roland Park institutions disappear.

The song was fierce, a bizarre banger with an odd Indian vocal sample riding the groove of B.T. Express' "Do It ('Til You're Satisfied)." Truth Hurts' "Addictive," produced by Dr. Dre and DJ Quik with a smoothed-out rap from legendary rhyme spitter Rakim, was one of the biggest crossover hits of 2002. The video, replete with hip-shaking Indian-inspired dance sequences, stayed in frequent rotation on MTV and BET. The joint thumped from countless radio and club speakers and hit No. 1. In the mix of exotic beats and shrill melisma, Truth extolled the man of her dreams: He's so contagious, he turns my pages He's got me anxious, he's what I waited for He keeps me guessin', spon -- tan -- ne -- ous ... After "Addictive" fell off the charts, it looked as if Truth would join Anita Ward ("Ring My Bell")

Don't look for the Roland Park Bakery & Deli in Roland Park. The combination bakery and counter shop is in Hampden now and doing well, where it appears to have filled a niche between the fancy fare of the neighborhood's new spots and the slapdash grub you can still find at the old haunts. A longtime fixture of Roland Park life, Anita Ward's combination bakery and sandwich shop reopened last year on Chestnut Street after 27 years in the Roland Park Shopping Center. The move wasn't entirely voluntary.

My Small Business Saturday got off to an early start on Wednesday.    At noon I picked up our Thanksgiving pumpkin pies and snowflake rolls at the re-located Roland Park Bakery and Deli . No longer at the back of the historic Roland Avenue shopping center, it is now on Chestnut Avenue, below The Avenue (West 36th Street) in Hampden. When I walked in almost all of the tables were full. A woman I know from Stevenson was there with her five grandchildren. Neighbors from Goodwood Gardens showed up shortly thereafter, so it seems that many of Anita Ward's longtime customers have followed her and her delicious baked goods to the new location.

Diablita Cantina has closed; the Mexican restaurant's last night was Saturday. The news was posted on the restaurant's Facebook page: "Last night for La Diablita. All daily drink specials from open to close ... while supplies last. " This is the third restaurant to close in the old Holland Manufacturing Building since late 2007, when the Annapolis imports Lemongrass and Tsunami started their truncated runs. The Diablita closing suggests that this location, in what is technically Little Italy, is still not on many people's dining maps.
