Calls to the bar and its management group, Truffles Catering, have not been returned. Will update when they do.

A new cookbook developed with local chef Connie Crabtree-Burritt shares more than 200 recipes the whole family can enjoy, and should spark some interesting conversations as well. In addition to food, “BOS Cooks” features stories from Baltimore Outreach Services' decade of working with homeless children and women, and the recipes are accompanied by work from nine local artists. “Through this cookbook, people will be able to not only enjoy family-focused recipes,” Crabtree-Burritt said, “but learn about the heart-warming stories from the shelter.” Crabtree-Burritt started her career in the early 1970s as a chef and partner of Cacao Lane in Ellicott City, and she helped develop several Baltimore landmarks, including the Owl Bar at the Belvedere Hotel, Catering by Crabtree and Pier 500 Restaurant in the Inner Harbor.

Crisp and clean, January is the month when we're officially supposed to start over. After reflecting on the old, we will begin anew with the hope of renewing and rejuvenating our lives. And so, the season really calls for a drink to match the refreshed feelings we have coming off the holidays; a drink that is indulgent yet light enough to erase the heaviness of the past few weeks. Smooth, fresh and sophisticated, the Sondra Martini at the 13th Floor is the cocktail to drink as you toast to the new year.

Finally, Baltimore gets a chance to look good on prime time TV - and it's on the most stylish and honored drama on television no less. It's the Baltimore of the 1960s, unfortunately, not Baltimore today. But nevertheless, Baltimore is featured prominently in the Aug. 16 premiere episode of Season 3 of AMC's Mad Men, last year's winner of the Emmy as the best drama on television. And what viewers will see of the city - from Haussner's restaurant to the Belvedere Hotel - makes Baltimore look like a first-rate East Coast urban center with good hotels, restaurants, night life and thriving businesses.

Peter A. Prevas - an attorney for Louis V. Wood, the owner of Suite Ultralounge - argued that a new law governing BYOB "bottle clubs" that went into effect last year was "sloppy" and unclear, and said the club owner's due-process rights had been violated at a revocation hearing.

As 2006 kicks off, a couple of Baltimore hangouts are hoping to combine the old with the new. In the basement of the Belvedere Hotel, Kamikazis has just opened where Kobe Teppan closed last November. It, too, is a sushi/hibachi Japanese restaurant. And it, too, is hoping to hook B-more's late-night crowd. But Kamikazis manager Hillary Herlehy says she and owner James C. Foster hope to ratchet things up a notch. To start with, Herlehy says they've tried to give the place a slightly more "energetic feel."
