In eight years with the Orioles, did B.J. Surhoff ever crack a smile? Surely, he had cause. It was here, in mid-career, that Surhoff: (1) found his home-run swing, (2) finally landed an All-Star berth and (3) twice helped the Orioles to the playoffs (1996-97), where they haven't been since. Through it all, Surhoff's grim visage never changed. Hit a homer, jump for joy? Not him. "I remember that one reporter said my expression was 'dour,' " he said. "I had to look that one up."

We had been to BJ's South several times to sample their fantastic seafood-and-cheddar topped potato skins, gaze at the bay and hail the water taxi. This time we decided to order from the rest of the menu and see what else BJ's does well.The restaurant, a younger sibling of BJ's on the Water at 75th Street, takes full advantage of its location on the bay near the U.S. 50 bridge. Dinner is served on the wrap-around deck or inside, where garage-door sized windows are left open to the charms of the bay.We started with fried clam strips ($3.95 for a big basket or $8.95 for all-you-can-eat)

BJ JazzWhere: 3407 Greenmount Ave.Hours: 11 a.m.-2 a.m. daily.Menu: Seafood, sandwiches, burgers.Credit cards: Not accepted.Call: 467-4022.Even if the revisionist jazz historians are right and Billie Holiday was born in Philadelphia instead of Baltimore, it still ain't fair that so few local clubs offer live jazz. Considering Baltimore's rich jazz history, and some of the fine musicians who live here, the paucity of jazz venues is a puzzler.So a warm welcome is in order for a new club in Waverly, BJ Jazz, that will be presenting live jazz bands at least a couple nights a week and will otherwise rely on a CD jukebox with 800 jazz titles.
