Before there was Harry Potter midnight release parties, there was Georges Duboeuf, the mastermind behind the annual "third-Thursday-in-November" release of Beaujolais Nouveau. This year's release is accompanied by an energetic and fresh national campaign called Nouveau Expression -- the 2011 graffiti label is the work of the Brooklyn-based artist known as Mr. Kaves. Metropolitan will host its fifth annual "From the Barrel" Beaujolais Nouveau release party on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. The Federal Hill cafe and wine bar has again arranged to procure five small barrels of 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau.

I'm on a mission to revel in as much of autumn's bounty as I can. Yes, I said "autumn's bounty. " Can you blame me? It took this season long enough to get here. So in celebration, I (my taste buds, really) am devouring apples and spice and any and everything associated with the crisp, tart fall goodness one can find at Baltimore area farmers' markets. That especially means cider. I could bathe in cider … but I'll spare you that tale. I also like to bake with it, marinade things in it, and I especially enjoy imbibing a few dozen cocktails mixed with the alcoholic variety.

When is an empty steel barrel safe to use as a trash can? No, this isn't a riddle posed by the arch-enemy in the new Batman movie. It's the quandary that faced Carroll County's Bureau of Land Management.The bureau recycled 55-gallon drums that previously contained highway paint as trash barrels for Freedom Park in South Carroll and immediately was criticized for possibly endangering public health. Saving public dollars is a good idea and so is recycling empty steel drums. Carroll's land management bureau likes to use these barrels as trash receptacles because they are cheap and people don't steal them.

LONG BEFORE THE drought drained reservoirs and rivers, Graham and Sharon Loane had been thrifty with water. When they moved to Westminster from Canada last year, they had hoped to continue their practice of gathering rain from spouts. But the 50-gallon oak barrels that caught each raindrop had to be left at their Canadian home. Graham thought about buying plastic barrels, but there was something about the rich smell of whiskey-cured oak that told him, "Wait." Two weeks ago, days before a torrential rain, the Loanes journeyed to Canada, purchased two barrels for $160, hauled them to their Diamond Hills home and set them up. The morning after the storm, both 50-gallon barrels were filled, and the Loanes had the water reserve that they had counted on and cherished in Canada.

WASHINGTON - In an effort to drive down record crude oil prices, Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil producer, offered yesterday to increase its output by at least 500,000 barrels, to 9 million barrels a day, starting June 1. In contrast to an earlier suggestion by the country that OPEC increase its quotas, the offer is important because it would truly add more oil to the market rather than simply formalizing existing overproduction by the group's members....

VIENNA, Austria - Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries have agreed to cut production targets by 1.5 million barrels a day when they meet today, Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said yesterday. "There is an agreement," al-Naimi, whose nation is the world's biggest oil producer, said after consulting with colleagues in Vienna before the meeting. A daily reduction of 1.5 million barrels would be 5.6 percent of the combined quotas adopted by 10 OPEC members in November.

Baltimore housing officials have ended a short-lived program to label property inspectors as being in the “shark tank” or “crab barrel” based partly on how many citations they issue to property owners. Eric Booker, the assistant commissioner for code enforcement, announced the new ranking system to inspectors in an Aug. 29 email obtained by The Baltimore Sun. “It will highlight the top inspectors, the 'LEADERS', by category as well as the bottom dwellers, the 'LAGGARDS',” Booker wrote.

Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, the flagship beer of Clipper City Brewing Co., hasn't stayed on shelves of stores across 18 states and Washington, D.C., for long. The thirst of beer drinkers for the India pale-ale-style beer showed no signs of diminishing this year as it made up nearly 50 percent of the brewery's sales, according to a company spokeswoman, Kelly Zimmerman. To meet the demand, the Halethorpe-based brewery stopped production of its imperial cream ale, called Davey Jones Lager, until next summer.

Sometimes living in the future is awesome.  Crate & Barrel just launched its new registry app. Similar to a QR code, you hold your phone up to an item, scan it and it automatically populates in your online registry. From this app, you can monitor the registry, too. You can track which gifts have been purchased, edit your list, and - to make it cooler - you can do all this through voice command. As I discussed before, we're using myregistry.com and asking primarily for wine, though if this app had been invented a few months ago we would have considered going with Crate & Barrel.

There's a new exhibit waiting to greet summer visitors at Delaware's Cape Henlopen State Park. And it's big. It's a 16-inch gun barrel that once roared from the deck of the battleship Missouri during World War II, and it now rests — 120 tons, 68 feet long — at the Battery 519 Museum at Fort Miles, which is part of Cape Henlopen State Park. The gun — officially known as Barrel 371 — arrived at Fort Miles last month. It is similar to the two 16-inch Army guns that defended the coast and the Delaware Bay from German U-boats.

NEW YORK - Crude oil futures rose to an eight-week high yesterday as expanding economies bolster demand for petroleum products. Oil has jumped 28 percent this year as OPEC output has risen close to capacity to meet increasing consumption in the United States and China. The U.S. economy grew at a 3.7 percent annual pace in the second quarter. The German economy may grow at the fastest pace in five years next year, a government adviser said. "The continuation of broad-based economic growth across countries has increased energy demand and pulled oil prices higher," said Jason Schenker, an economist at Wachovia Securities LLC in Charlotte, N.C. Crude oil for September delivery was up 40 cents, or 1 percent, at $41.84 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest settlement price for a contract closest to expiration since a record $42.33 on June 1. Futures began trading on the exchange in 1983.

Scrambling to control high oil prices, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries will meet this weekend in Beirut, Lebanon, before its official conference there Thursday, and might pursue a plan to raise quotas sharply or do away with them entirely, an OPEC spokesman said yesterday. Lifting quotas entirely "could be one of the options" that OPEC considers this weekend, Abdulrahman al-Kheraigi, a spokesman for the 11-nation cartel, said in a telephone interview. "That option might be seriously considered," he said, "but I haven't heard anything official.

This Spring, Frisco Tap and Brew House in Columbia will open a seven-barrel microbrewery under the name Push Craft Brewing.  Brewing his own beer has always been an ambition of owner Adam Carton; when he designed the restaurant, which is known for its 50 taps , he included space for a brewery. Indeed, its name suggested it was already able to make its own beer. But Carton was waiting for the business, which has been at its new location at 6695 Dobbin Road for a year, to mature.

Under international pressure over its nuclear ambitions, Iran is now threatening to take pre-emptive action, which could include disrupting oil supplies to the West. It will come as a shock to most Americans, but no presidential candidate - nor, apparently, any agency at the local, state or federal level - has developed a contingency plan in the event of a protracted oil cut-off. It is not even being discussed. Government has prepared for hurricanes, anthrax, terrorism and every other disaster, but not the one threatened daily: a protracted oil stoppage, whether caused by terrorism or Iranian intervention in the Persian Gulf.
