For years, Silks, the bar at the corner of Hudson Street and South Lakewood Avenue in Canton, was mostly overlooked. It was just another corner bar you'd walk past on the way to someplace else. But now, after a two-and-a-half-year renovation, Silks has reinvented itself as a welcoming neighborhood spot. With a good, revolving beer selection, an appealing menu that focuses on pub-friendly food and smiling faces behind the bar, it's giving local residents a reason to do more than walk on by. Scene & Decor Aesthetically, Silks has cleaned up its act, transforming its run-down space into something fresh and attractive.

Ihave a friend who likes to test bartenders by requesting a bullshot. It's a drink she recalls her elders drinking when she was a child - a drink that reminds her of genteel meals with favorite aunts and uncles, or at least members of an older generation she would happily claim as aunts or uncles. Those leisurely times were often luncheons, brunches or other occasions when a Bloody Mary would be in order. Rather than tomato juice, the bullshot uses beef bouillon. The result is described by one connoisseur as a "beefy" drink.

Planet on the Corner is a good name for an establishment that aims to be more than just a restaurant. This recent addition to the Canton restaurant scene has chess boards, video games (discreetly hidden), a piano, a PC with free Internet access and vintage Yellow Submarine toys - in addition to a good selection of coffee, beer and light meals. Even if you don't avail yourself of all the amenities at Planet on the Corner, you'll enjoy parking yourself at a sunny table overlooking Fleet Street and watching the world go by. The restaurant opens early and closes late.

There are some things to like about the "South Pacific" playing at the Chesapeake Music Hall through Sept. 1, but problems of casting and execution make this presentation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic much less of an "enchanted evening" than it ought to be.Alas, the scenes come and go without any real sense of occasion, either in cumulative impact or in the numerous "big moments" that dot both the book and the score.A major problem is the casting of Cynthia Lasner as Ensign Nellie Forbush, for this attractive young actress is simply not up to the demands of the starring role.

He was 60 and lived in Federal Hill.A small man who was called "Nick the Greek" by all who knew him, Mr. Marcuri worked behind the bar dressed in his trademark Sperry Topsiders with no socks, a blue Oxford cloth button-down shirt and khaki pants.Before becoming a bartender, Mr. Marcuri worked for 18 years as a fire protection engineer, surveying buildings for insurance companies, and retired in the early 1970s.

The Second Stage troupe made a memorable debut with South Pacific last weekend at Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts, never looking better that it did on this theater's main stage. Exhibiting their distinctive brio and brilliance in their performance, Second Stage joined the family of already established CCCA theater groups - Pasadena Theatre Company, Actors Company Theatre and Merely Players. Second Stage President Mary James directed this production with Bil Shappell serving as music director and Elaine Bachman as choreographer.

The miraculous score remains intact, but otherwise Rodgers and Hammerstein aficionados might have a bit of trouble recognizing "South Pacific" as brought off by the Naval Academy Glee Club.The classic tale of tragedy and love set during the war against Japan has become a show within a show in its Mahan Hall incarnation, staged this year to celebrate the academy's 150th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II.The audience is welcomed on board the USS Monterey, a light carrier that served with distinction in the Pacific theater during the war. The show is presented on the carrier's main deck by a touring USO company brought aboard in the waning days of the war.Whoops and hollers from the "crew," sailors jumping off balconies, and frequent announcements of incoming Japanese aircraft punctuate the proceedings with great frequency.

If breakfast is your favorite meal of the day, but you don't want to get up early for it -- well, there's always Sunday brunch. (And Saturday in some cases.) It's just a matter of finding the right one. Everybody knows you can get the elaborate, all-you-can buffet extravaganzas at the city's best hotels. We want to suggest some places you might not have considered, either because they're new or because you haven't heard they serve eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles and mimosas once (or twice)

Let us now raise a Bloody Mary, a cocktail worth a toast on its own. It's versatile, tasty and a perennial favorite. And as mornings grow warmer and afternoons lengthen, a "Bloody" can be irresistible. The drink is usually credited to Fernand "Pete" Petiot, who came up with the basic combination while trying out new vodka drinks at Harry's New York Bar in Paris in the early 1920s. Petiot brought the drink to New York a decade later when Vincent Astor brought him to the St. Regis Hotel to tend bar. The drink took on some other names, Red Snapper and Morning Glory among them.

Glenn Close seems a little too tenured to be Nellie Forbush. Rade Sherbedgia doesn't radiate much sensual electricity as Emile de Becque. The passion you are supposed to feel when the two are in each other's company is mainly missing in action. Then there's Harry Connick Jr., as Marine Lt. Joseph Cable. Let's just say he's a lot closer to the young Frank Sintra as a singer than as an actor. And let's not even talk about what they've done to some of the marvelous songs of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, dropping one altogether ("Happy Talk")
