Vikram Sunderam of Rasika in Washington won the 2014 James Beard award for "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic," beating out Baltimore-based chefs Cindy Wolf of Charleston and Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen. The awards were announced at a ceremony at the Lincoln Center in New York on Monday evening.  Both Wolf and Gjerde have made it to the finalist round before, Wolf in 2006 and 2008, and Gjerde in 2013. But a win on Monday night for either Wolf or Gjerde would have been a first for a Baltimore chef.

When Edward T. Norris became Maryland State Police superintendent this year, he pledged to shake up the agency. At an awards ceremony yesterday, he celebrated the changes with troopers who have been promoted into his new command structure. Despite some criticism of his personnel moves - including a vote of no confidence by one of the Fraternal Order of Police lodges that represents troopers - Norris said the promotions help fulfill the goals he has for the department. "I told you we'd find the future leaders of this department," he said during the ceremony at state police headquarters in Pikesville.

The latest episode of "Parks and Recreation" did so many things to make me happy. Let's make a list. 1.) Acknowledged the rare and beautiful thing that is Ron and Leslie's deep friendship that has not a trace of romance to it, despite the fact that they are of opposite gender and both heterosexual. 2.) Let Lucy Liu be a badass in the most subtle and wonderful of ways. 3.) Unleashed Megan Mullally in full-crazy mode. 4.) Not only acknowledged that the meanness toward Jerry is that, but had the characters acknowledge it and correct their behavior.
