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.

Crab-flavored potato chips and kosher foods may not have much in common, gastronomically speaking. But in the frenzied world of warehouse-style retailing, the two items are inextricably linked, at least in the Baltimore-area market.You'll find both in bulk at the 116,000-square-foot BJ's Wholesale Club store in Columbia, which opened June 27."It's called knowing your market," says Herbert J. Zarkin, chief executive officer for Waban Inc., the Natick, Mass.-based company which owns BJ's.Before selecting what to stock in the massive 6,000-item inventory of the new store, the members-only chain studied in detail the demographics and taste nuances of area residents.
