The weekend is so close you can taste it. If you're headed east to the Atlantic, take a look at our guide to 100 Best Beach Eats , which covers Ocean City, West Ocean City and Delaware towns stretching from Fenwick Island to Lewes. It might be hard to get to on a busy weekend, when the Ocean Gateway (Route 50) is bumper to bumper, but sometime this summer make sure you stop by the Shrimp Boat on Stephen Decatur Highway. This 23-year-old roadside shack is the real deal, where the locals have always come to buy fresh seafood and steamed-while-you-wait shrimp.

The Sun's Feb. 23 editorial, "Raise the tobacco tax," really burns my butt.I am convinced the lawmakers who would be responsible for the doubling of tax on tobacco products do not have health on their minds. If they really wanted to save lives, they would increase the taxes on alcoholic beverages, especially beer and wine.The reduction of drinking due to increased cost would save more innocent lives than the reduction of smokers. The reduction of drinking would save more marriages, jobs, friendships and sanity than any decrease in smoking.

THE QUESTION boiled down to this: Does Howard County need a liquor store with 500 kinds of beer and 5,000 brands of wine to serve the community?The county liquor board suggested that the answer is "no," rejecting a bid by Total Beverage to hold a license to operate a huge beer and wine store at the Long Gate shopping center in Ellicott City.The definition of "need," however, was never clearly explained.The board's formula for determining need was a complicated mathematical equation involving aggregate household income and existing liquor sales that even board Chairman C. Vernon Gray had a tough time explaining.

Sundays in Baltimore County, even Super Bowl Sundays, are not what they could be, says business owner David Trone, operator of Beltway Fine Wine & Spirits in Towson. Trone is hoping the hoopla over the Ravens vs. 49ers will help consumers focus on what he sees as outdated liquor laws that keep most beer and wine shops in the county closed on Sundays. This Sunday, he says, Baltimore County residents who failed to plan ahead for Super Bowl parties could find themselves having to cross county lines to stock up on beer and wine.

Damascus is about to get wet. The Montgomery County town, which had banned the sale of alcoholic beverages for as long as anyone can remember, voted Tuesday to permit local restaurants to sell wine and beer. Four times in the previous 35 years, residents of the unincorporated town of just over 15,000 had voted to keep the place dry. In 1996, the ban was upheld by a few hundred votes. But this year, the vote wasn't close, as 66 percent said yes to alcohol. Retail sales of alcohol will not be permitted.

Everyone has their own tips and tricks for saving money on the big day, so here's my two-cents on keeping a little extra in your pocket -- and how much I've saved so far using these strategies. The cake Tell your baker you would like to do two tiers on display with a sheet cake (or two depending on the size of your wedding) in the kitchen. This allows you to have a beautifully decorated cake on display for your guests but can save you significantly because the baker doesn't have to decorate as much.
