Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken Jr. and his wife, Kelly, are entering the restaurant business with a Baltimore-area native who operates a dozen New York City restaurants. The Ripkens and Andrew Silverman, along with several other partners, have agreed to lease a 6,643-square-foot space at Green Spring Station, an upscale commercial and retail center at Joppa and Falls roads in Baltimore County. The site was home to Harvey's restaurant, which closed in March after 20 years. The still-unnamed restaurant is expected to open in late November.

There's a Greene Turtle less than five miles away from Playoff Sports Bar and Grill, which opened in Reisterstown early in the year. A Buffalo Wild Wings sits even closer, a quarter-mile down the street. With standard pub fare and more TVs than a Best Buy showroom, all three spots cater to sports fans who care more about the view of the game than an extensive beer list. But if you've been to one Green Turtle or Buffalo Wild Wings, you've been to them all. So the question remains: Can the independently owned Playoff differentiate itself enough from the chains to emerge as the best option?

It's easy to imagine popping into the Boatyard Bar and Grill after a day of sailing. This is a boat-happy restaurant, located near the Annapolis City Marina, across the Spa Creek Bridge in Eastport. The walls are covered with photographs, paintings and doodads of all things nautical; the handsome wooden bar is in the shape of a boat's hull; and sailboat races are shown on the television in the bar. Boating enthusiast Dick Franyo, who with his wife, Susan, opened the restaurant in October 2001, films local yacht races on Wednesday nights during the racing season, then shows them shortly afterward on television sets in the bar. After September, reruns from the previous season are shown on Wednesdays.

On Sept. 25, a new Facebook page celebrating a legendary (or infamous, depending on whom you ask) Baltimore party-spot from years past made an announcement: " Bohager's Bar and Grill opened [its] doors on July 2, 1992 and served [its] last customer on October 31, 2004. Twenty years later, Bohager's will hold a reunion for all of the employees and customers who enjoyed the craziness known simply as 'Bohager's.'" The at-times controversial Fells Point megabar - which hosted foam parties, college nights, concerts and was the city's version of Seacrets before shutting down in 2004 - will host a 20-year reunion at the Gameday Warehouse (1400 Warner St.)

The owners of the Playbook Sports Bar and Grill built up interest in their venture before it opened in October by holding an online "name that bar" contest. They choose Playbook over several options not suitable for publication. The sports bar, in a concrete building off Dundalk Avenue, doesn't look like much from the outside, and the name, which sounds like it belongs on The Block, doesn't boost appeal. But the interior, with plenty of sleek black and gray, could pass for a Federal Hill or Canton establishment.

Isabel R. Abell, former co-owner of the Hollow Bar and Grill in Govans, died Sunday of congestive heart failure at St. Joseph Medical Center. She was 89 and lived in Towson. In the 1940s, Mrs. Abell and her husband, William Harry Abell, whom she married in 1930, became co-owners of the Hollow Bar and Grill on the southeast corner of York Road and Northern Parkway. They operated the popular tavern, which is today known as the Swallow at the Hollow, until the 1950s, when they sold the business.

Not every place in the Miami area is jammed with out-of-town football fans. If you know where to go, you can still find a neighborhood sports bar where you don't have to pay a cover or stand in line for a Bud Light. Case in point: The Circus Bar and Grill in Pompano Beach, one of those neighborhood bars with pool tables, darts (albeit those wimpy soft-tipped ones) and license plates on the walls. "We'll get some friends of friends who are in from out of town," said owner James Rodriguez, "but that's about it."

How could a sports bar ask for a better location? Sliders Bar and Grill is directly across the street from the Camden Yards stadium.Those into technicalities will note that the new baseball stadium won't open for another year, but Sliders was so sure of its major league prospects that it opened last summer on this easternmost block of Washington Boulevard.Sliders took over the site of a longtime neighborhood bar called Marty's Good Times Saloon, many of whose regulars worked at the factories and warehouses demolished to make way for the stadium.

What does the sailing community in Eastport love? It loves the Boatyard Bar and Grill. Dick Frayno opened the Boatyard Bar and Grill in the Eastport district of Annapolis in 2001. Cozy and charming, with plenty of dining and shopping options, Eastport has grown in popularity since then, and the Boatyard has established itself as a community hub for residents and tourists, and an unofficial headquarters for the city's sailing community. I think it must be outsiders who come to Annapolis looking for Chesapeake-focused cuisine.

Ten years ago, when Sonoma's Bar and Grille opened in Columbia's Owen Brown Village Center, the concept was "basically a restaurant," said owner Jerry Seidel, 41. Over time, the concept was tweaked. Televisions and live music acts were added. "We found out that our niche was more of an upscale sports bar with entertainment at night," he said. And, until recently, that meant that smoking was allowed at Sonoma's. To accommodate the smokers, a large partition with glass windows had divided the restaurant, separating the smoking section from the nonsmokers.

A work in progress"The kitchen isn't really ready yet," Brian Kemble explains carefully. "We still have to build it." So maybe, says Kemble, one of the owners of the new Greenbacks Bar and Grill, they shouldn't be advertising it as a bar and grill. "But, hey, that's its name. What're you going to do?" The bar and soon-to-be grill opened about a month ago at 940 S. Conkling St. When the kitchen is finished -- supposedly in a couple of weeks -- you'll be able to get burgers, shrimp, crabs and bar munchies there.
