In this video, Bryan Voltaggio makes a muffaletta at his Lunchbox restaurant. The video was produced, I think, by a Georgetown men's boutique named Lost Boys. When you click on a Lost Boys link, at least on Friday, scary things start popping up on your computer. The sandwich looks good, anyway, and so does Voltaggio. Not sure about that jacket.

When Maryland Transportation Authority police charged Olympian Michael Phelps with driving under the influence last week, they had two choices about what to do next: They could release him to a friend or family member, or take him to jail. In Phelps' case, they chose the first option. After the swimmer flunked roadside sobriety tests, according to court documents, officers took him back to a police station. After he took a Breathalyzer test that registered a 0.14 percent blood alcohol level, Phelps signed some paperwork and was released to a "responsible adult," police have said.

Bryan Voltaggio's diner project, coming later this spring to East Street in Frederick, has a name. It's Family Meal. The term has a sweet double meaning.

Collaboration is the word of the year in the Baltimore restaurant scene. Every month delivers new announcements about good-natured cooking competitions or chefs "popping up" in one another's restaurants. Baltimore's chefs work hard in their own kitchens, but they also have a great time getting out and playing with the rest of the local culinary community. Over the past few years, chefs say, as the city's food scene has blossomed, so have their relationships. For a handful of Baltimore chefs, the root of those friendships is in volunteering.
