A large swath of downtown Baltimore's west side would become the city's third state-designated arts and entertainment district, and the state's 20th, if Maryland economic development officials approve a city application designed to strengthen the area. The proposed Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District is a 117-acre tract that would join districts in Station North and Highlandtown as city areas in which individuals and businesses would be eligible for tax breaks for arts-related activities and investments.

The Baltimore Development Corp. said Thursday it was reissuing a request for proposal to develop three properties, including the former Parkway Theatre, one of the most prominent landmarks in the city's Station North Arts and Entertainment District. The BDC in 2009 confirmed a proposal for the Parkway Theatre project by Cormony Development and Seawall Development Co. But due to "changing conditions" over "considerable periods of time," the city chose to renew the RFP process, according to M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the BDC. Samuel Polakoff, head of Cormony Development, said the BDC never told him and Seawall why it was no longer supporting them as developers.

Fall is perfect for a visit to Maryland's Eastern Shore. The landscape is still touched with autumn color, and flocks of wildfowl overhead almost blot out the sun. Next weekend, in addition to the rewards of nature, the annual Waterfowl Festival brings visitors to Easton from all over the country. As the shore's Colonial capital, Easton is known for its many charms, but during Waterfowl weekend the mood is especially festive. Streets are closed to traffic and shuttle buses operate between outlying parking areas and the many festival sites.

The sprawling complex at 2324 Boston St. has a spotty record. Canton Arts and Entertainment opened there in fall 2009 and fizzled out just several months later. It's not hard to see why — parking is difficult to find and it's tough to fill up such a large building. But Marc McFaul, who oversees Ropewalk Tavern, Stalking Horse and Delia Foley's, has decided to give it an overhaul by dividing the space into two bars with distinctive personalities. Open since June, the refurbished venue consists of a Southwestern barbecue bar and restaurant, Dark Horse Saloon, and Finnegan's Wake, an Irish pub. The two bars are decorated in accordance with their concepts; one was busy while I was there, and the other one wasn't; and they both offer exhaustive wings menus.

'Jersey Boys' The 50-year career of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons — the biggest group in rock and roll, at least until The Beatles came along — is chronicled, celebrated and otherwise revisited in this exuberant Tony Award-winning musical. Actors playing each of the four original members — Valli, Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi — take turns telling the band's story, as it rises from obscurity to massive popularity, followed by dissension, infighting, and then acceptance and rediscovery (the trajectory of pretty-much every rock band, come to think of it)
