When the Playboy Club in Baltimore opened in 1964, it quickly carved a niche for itself in the city. Like its counterparts across the nation, the local franchise prided itself on being upscale and professional, former Playboy Bunnies who worked there said. More than 100 former Bunnies, who worked in clubs internationally from the '60s to the '80s, converged on Baltimore to share stories of the bygone businesses this weekend at their semiannual reunion. Several who worked in Baltimore's club said its appeal was much the same as the magazine's - they were mysterious and provocative.

Eric Kowalczyk said several officers were directing traffic in the 200 block of N. Franklintown Road when a Jeep crossed the center line and drove toward the officers. The vehicle hit three of them.

He also was fined $2,500 for a variety of violations, including the March 18 shooting that shook the Gardenville neighborhood, along with a series of fights in November inside and outside the bar. Arosemena had agreed to sign over the license to the bank before the hearing and did not protest any of the charges.

She was 29. Through her popular radio show, which attracted thousands of listeners each night, and frequent live performances, Ms. Edgerton helped reinvigorate and reintroduce the aging genre of Baltimore Club music to a younger generation of listeners.

On Sunday, Baltimore Rowing Club Director of Youth Rowing Judd Anderson stood up during the service at his church to give an announcement. But while he began to share the news that 17 of his rowers will attend this weekend's USRowing Youth National Championships in Sacramento, Calif., Anderson began to choke up. It's the most rowers the club has ever sent, but that's not the only reason Anderson became emotional. In 2011, he began a program through the club named Reach High Baltimore: Rowers Empowering Baltimore Youth as a way introduce inner-city students from sixth to 11th grade to the sport.

Toward the end of a blistering set on a recent Friday night, Adam Marans, lead singer of the Baltimore sludgy punk foursome Big Christ, took a rare breather to dedicate the next song, “Boogie Nights,” to the deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. A collective smile hit the room of roughly 25. And then came the boom, a glorious cacophony of Marans' full-throated yells, relentless cymbal crashing, staccato palm muting on guitar and the bass' punishing low end. The 25-minute performance was loud, brutal and a lot of fun. It was also just a regular Friday night at the Gold Bar, another smart and solid addition to an emerging Station North bar scene that already includes the Windup Space, Beatnik, Club K and next-door neighbor The Crown.

Foregoing conventional wisdom in wet conditions, the Metro squad adopted a pass-first approach Saturday in the 18th annual Baltimore Touchdown Club Senior All-Star game. That decision, plus the accurate leg of River Hill kicker Alex Potocko, led the Metro team to a 15-7 win over the Baltimore group. The victory extends the Metro squad's series lead to 10-8, after losing the first three matchups from 1996 to 1998. "It's a passing game. You've got talented skill kids," said Metro head coach Steve Turnbaugh, of Hereford.

It was a normal night at Philadelphia's 700 Club until DJ Low Budget whipped out a set of frantic, banging Baltimore club music. Out on the floor, most of the crowd was overwhelmed. Charm City native Naeem Juwan went nuts. "I completely flipped out," Juwan said. "I was on the floor dancing real hard. I was one of the only people in the spot that was dancing real hard. You have that nostalgic moment where the stuff that you grew up with never really leaves you. You still hold it close to your heart, regardless of where you decide to go."

The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens have three wins and five losses; they just lost to the Cleveland Browns for the first time in seven seasons, and they play the conference-leading Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. So I'll say this: The home team could use a Maori haka right about now, and I know where to get one. The Baltimore-Chesapeake Brumbies, the city's entry in the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Football Union, have been practicing the haka - the most famous pre-game ritual in the world - for the last seven weeks.

DOWNLOAD: Abdu Ali, "Push + Slay" Sitting outside a Mid-Town Belvedere coffee shop on a warm October afternoon, Abdu Ali Eaton was dressed a lot like his music sounds. He wore beat-to-hell pink-and-yellow Adidas high-tops, black sweatpants that scrunch at the bottom and a vintage Cosby sweater that peaked through a buttoned-up oversize camouflage jacket. It's a messy, couldn't-care-less-what-anyone-thinks collage that defies categorization, yet somehow works in the 23-year-old's hands.
