They stayed in luxury hotel rooms overlooking the Inner Harbor, caught a ballgame at Oriole Park, devoured the seven-course feast they watched chefs prepare. They marveled at museums and marine mammals, sailed aboard a schooner at sunset, nibbled endless appetizers and sipped drinks at stops along the way.And they got paid to do it -- all in a weekend's work.In the lexicon of the travel industry, the half-dozen journalists who stayed at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel recently explored Baltimore on a weekend press "fam," or familiarization, tour.

The Hickory Ridge Village Center has a lot to offer. The ambience there seems light, airy and contemporary when not a few of Columbia's commercial centers are looking rather tired these days. One of the center's long-time residents (since 1993, we're told, but it seems longer) is keeping up with the Hickory Ridge outside ambience with a charming new d├ęcor inside. Today's Peking Chef isn't exactly Zen, but the 130-seat restaurant provides a lovely, relaxed interior, with epoxy-topped wooden tables and wooden chairs in the center of the dining room, and booths along the sides.

Until the other night, the expression "eat with your eyes" had not made much sense to me. I figured that in polite society you ate with your silverware. When no one was looking, you used your fingers.The only thing you did with your eyes was to roll them with delight when you enjoyed something exceptional.The "eat-with-your-eyes" routine started becoming clear to me Saturday night when I went to one of those gala events where every restaurant chef in the city had whipped up a dish and was passing out samples.

Giuseppe Ristorante Italiano, 248 Albemarle St., (410) 685-1859. Open every day for lunch and dinner. Major credit cards. Prices: appetizers, $4.75-$7.95; entrees, $9.50-$22.50. **1/2Sometimes you get tired of Frenchified northern Italian cuisine or chic Mediterranean food. You've had enough hip art students working their way through college by waiting tables. Enough funky atmosphere. Weird breads with unexpected things like olives in them. High prices for a minuscule amount of arty pasta.

North Charles Street has a new hot spot. And we do mean hot. As in south-of-the-border cuisine. Mahmood Karzai -- brother of Qayum Karzai, owner of Helmand, Tapas Teatro and b -- has just opened Tampico Mexican Grill at 1200 N. Charles St. But this isn't any ol' taco joint. The menu actually is more representative of true Mexican fare than the food most of us gringos generally associate with that country. Sure, you can get your burrito at Tampico. But you'll also find a variety of fresh seafood dishes.

Without the "Open" sign to tell you otherwise, it would be easy to assume the Mediterranean Palace on York Road across from Belvedere Square is closed. At dusk one recent night, little light emanated from the nondescript carryout, and it appeared as if one more city establishment had gone out of business. Inside, two customers were having a quiet dinner in a small dining room indifferently decorated with a lonesome tambourine, plastic flowers, a large mirror and faux ivy trailing along a faux trellis.

A new Afghan eatery - Afghan Kabob - has opened in downtown Baltimore and is already doing a bang-up business at lunch, according to owner Anwar Hamidi. The restaurant, at South Charles and Lombard streets, seats about 35 people, but much of its business is take-out and delivery. The menu lists seven appetizers ($3.95 each), six entrees ($6.95-$11.95) and two desserts ($3.95 each). Among the most popular choices, so far: kaddo, a baby-pumpkin appetizer; aushak, an appetizer that Hamidi calls Afghan ravioli; and Hamidi's homemade clay-oven bread.

Some people seek the answer to the question, "Is there life after death?" I feel an equally important question is, "Is it possible to diet and still eat out?"Chances are if you read this column with any degree of regularity, you have more than a casual interest in food. Therefore, if you have more than a casual interest in food, there is a good chance you do battle with the bathroom scale on occasion.I took my question to an expert, Rhoda Davis. Davis is an executive with the Social Security Administration at Woodlawn during the week.
