If Ice Cube's career is any indication, the life cycle of a rapper is highly unpredictable. One day you're protesting police brutality, and 20 years later you're playing cute for the "Ramona and Beezus" set. Still, his legacy as one of the pioneers of gangsta rap is cemented, and he's sold millions of albums, including several certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. On Monday, he'll perform at Bourbon Street. Ice Cube, whose real name is O'Shea Jackson, first came to prominence in the late 1980s as part of controversial group N.W.A.

Stores are stocked with costumes and giant bags of candy in preparation for the droves of children who will go trick-or-treating at the end of the month. But hand in hand with the fun side of Halloween is the spooky side, and Harford County is not exempt from local ghost stories. Lisa Ryan opened Havre de Haunts Tours & Paranormal Research last year to investigate and share those stories. Through Havre de Haunts, Ryan offers a 1½-hour guided walking tour of Havre de Grace that includes a history of the town as well as local ghost stories, all of which are true, Ryan claims.

This week's bar review is on Baltimore Soundstage, the music venue that replaces Mist (formerly Iguana Cantina) in the Inner Harbor. From the review : "Service is one of Soundstage's best qualities. The crowds have so far been uneven, and the bar and kitchen still haven't become fully operational. Meanwhile, the best thing that can be said about the room is that it'd be a great place to throw a homecoming dance. " Agree or disagree with the review? How was the City Paper party?

One of the best things about Ocean City is that some things never change. Families visit the same restaurants, year after year. Kids experience the same rides their parents rode when they were kids. The wild horses of Assateague stay wild and the gorgeous ocean view never wavers. But even the most stalwart lovers of tradition enjoy something fresh once in a while. This summer, thanks to tons of openings and events, both veteran beachgoers and O.C. newbies will find plenty that's new to love in and around Ocean City . Dining & nightlife Everyone has their favorite beach restaurants and bars - but it's fun to try new spots, too.

NEW ORLEANS -- When the Super Bowl shows up here, stuff happens. It might have something to do with the vibe. How many cities do you know where at noontime on a weekday, someone is paid to stand outside a bar in the middle of the street and hold up a large advertising sign that says: "HUGE ... BEERS"? How many cities do you know where another person is holding up another sign outside another establishment: "WASH THE GIRL OF YOUR CHOICE"? I can only think of one. It's the city where I saw both of those things Monday.

Mardi Gras beads were on the bars and pulsing beats were in the air Friday night at the new Bourbon Street super-club. It was Ladies Night, which meant women got in and drank for free. Bourbon Street was primed for partying; all that was missing were the people. At 11 p.m., Baltimore's newest mega-club was less than a third full. I scratched my head and hoped it was a fluke, because Bourbon Street has a lot going for it. True to its history, the building (which formerly housed Hammerjack's)

I'm going to admit -- I was pretty skeptical when I heard about a revamped Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore. Though the Hard Rock chain itself has become a piece of classic Americana about classic Americana, its presence in Baltimore over the years has always seemed lackluster, underwhelming and painfully touristy. Fancy a cocktail? Hard Rock would not immediately, if ever, cross the transom of my mind. But I might have to reconsider my options after recently taking a tour around their new drink menu and spotting a Hurricane among the offerings.

I've had to explain this about 50 times since February: Yes, I was at the Super Bowl , but I didn't even go in to watch the Ravens play in the Super Bowl . Best decision of 2013, and maybe, just maybe, ever. You see, it's not really about the athletics for us Baltimore fans. Yeah, we want our players to crush and destroy, to run the fastest, tackle hardest. Who doesn't? But that's not all. Not even close. What true Baltimore fandom is about is the same thing our city is about - being a gritty, underdog crew that scraps for every ounce of respect we (all too infrequently)

The only questions six years ago when the tradition started in Havre de Grace were why had no one thought of it before, and why did so few people show up for the first one. This year, the event drew a reasonably healthy crowd that was very well-behaved, considering the nature of the festivities, being a traditional last hurrah before the fasting season of Lent. The event, of course, is the Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Parade that came to full blossom last week on Bourbon Street in Havre de Grace.

The print on the cocktail napkins at Fells Point's newest hot spot, Bond Street Social, says it all: "Socialize". The bar and restaurant, a warm, earthy, industrial lounge, is dedicated to this simple concept. "It's all about sharing", said General Manager Shane Gerken. "We're committed to that theme: from the aesthetics and design to our menus. " While the food, described as "high-end comfort" is based around the trendy small plates concept, Bond Street's social drinks, with their 80-ounce infusion jars, brings a unique new idea to the table.
