It's not summer solstice yet, but home goods retailer IKEA is jumping in a week early to mark the longest day of the year. The IKEA Midsummer Celebration, in restaurants of all U.S. IKEA stores on Friday, features a smorgasbord with what is probably one of the longest menus of the year. Summer starts in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21. Midsummer is an important Swedish summer holiday, the retailer says, and Friday's buffet menu will reflect that. Besides meatballs with lingonberries, customers will find herring, poached salmon, Swedish cheeses, salads, boiled dill potatoes, hard boiled eggs with shrimp, Swedish ham, crispbread and strawberries with whipped cream, among other menu items.

There's probably some Australopithecine lizard brain thing that triggers my sense of conspiratorial intimacy whenever I go below street level to dine or drink. That or something about strangers gathering in dimly lit subterranean chambers appeals to the suppressed romantic in me. Genetic or poetic, it hardly matters when once below ground I'm facing a flank of chafing dishes offering mouth-watering food from the Indian subcontinent. 12:27 p.m. We make our way down the steps and enter Akbar , 823 N. Charles St. Judging from the size of the crowd, my dining companion and I are far from the only Australopithecine romantics in Baltimore.

Baltimore-based Civil Justice is offering free legal consultations for Marylanders who lost their home or are facing other foreclosure-related financial difficulties. The new program, “Foreclosure Recovery: On Track to Financial Health,” will focus on addressing harmful ripple effects of mortgage default, from municipal liens and debt collection to credit problems. The nonprofit Civil Justice hopes to reach 300 to 600 people. A panel of attorneys Civil Justice trained for the program will help consumers fix errors in credit reports, understand their bankruptcy options and determine whether there's a looming “ deficiency judgment ” for the amount owed on the former mortgage that wasn't covered by the foreclosure sale.

It started -- as it so often does -- with a call from a reader. I had to try the buffet at Mr. Chan Szechuan Restaurant. For $10, she said, you get a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet every Friday and Sunday night.So off I went, taking two friends. It never occurred to me that if you're offering enormous amounts of food for a small amount of money, a few people might show up. My first piece of advice is, make reservations. We waited only a half-hour for a table and counted ourselves lucky.

Sometimes good restaurants start out when the owner needs a place to eat. I have no idea if Great Fortune (10026 York Road, Cockeysville) will be a great restaurant (it's scheduled to open this week or next), but I do know that the owner - Lo, as he likes to be known - wants a place where he can get a fresh, consistently good lunch in under an hour. His new place is a buffet restaurant with a regular menu of Chinese food. The buffet will have a cold section, with 20 to 30 salads and salad items, and two hot bars.

There are few better cures for a horrendous day at work than a free happy-hour buffet. But "free" doesn't always mean "good" when it comes to bar food.

Breakfast out, other than the fast-food variety, is a special occasion for many people. Breakfast out means Sunday brunch, a vacation treat, a major commitment of time and money. It's not the sort of thing most people do without significant forethought.How nice it was, then, to meet my husband one recent Friday morning at the Inner Harbor Sheraton for its weekday buffet breakfast. And not expensive, either. At $4.95 for all you want, the cost was only marginally more than food on Styrofoam and certainly much less than a dressed-up weekend outing.

At least 100 federal workers usually crowd the Salsa Grill in Woodlawn for lunch. By Friday, the fourth day of the partial federal government shutdown, their numbers dwindled to three. The Peruvian eatery - across from the Social Security Administration and near the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services - counts on those agencies for about half its customers. "The restaurant business, it's small margins, and this is not going to help me at all," said Jay Angle, the owner and chef.

A long line at Laurel Plaza June 28 heralded the grand opening of Grande Buffet and Grill, where the first 100 takers in the late-morning line were treated to free chow - as much of it as they wanted. As green, yellow, red and blue streamers met a steamy breeze, Laurel Deputy City Administrator Marty Flemion grabbed an oversize pair of scissors and officially opened the new, 530-seat eatery, most recently, the home of a discount furniture outlet. "Everybody hungry?" asked Flemion, rhetorically.

Robert and Miriam Stern's condominium in the Annen Woods community in Pikesville is emblematic of their many years together — interesting, colorful, tastefully artistic and comfortably eclectic in style. This latest chapter in their story finds the retirees and longtime empty-nesters choosing to downsize and simplify their lives while keeping close the treasures they have collected and the memories attached to them. "We bought this end unit in the front of the building in June 2012," said Miriam Stern, a 71-year-old former medical secretary.

Millions of people in the path of Friday's powerful storm knew what was coming and braced for the worst. Many hunkered down in their basements, warned by meteorologists who had tracked the storm over 600 miles as it gathered speed and strength and drew a bead on the Mid-Atlantic. But just outside Annapolis, the Maryland Transportation Authority never considered temporarily closing the Bay Bridge, because an instrument atop the bridge was recording winds around 30 mph in the minutes before the storm.

News Roundup •••• Bethesda released their trailer for the “Dawnguard” expansion to “Skyrim,” and like everything in the last three years, it's about vampires. Anything that breathes new life into “Skyrim” is welcome, because even fantastic games get stale when you play them for 250 hours. Not that they have a way to keep track of that. Do they? [ YouTube ] •••• EA has confirmed “Dead Space 3” is real and will be announced next week at E3. This is kind of one of those “everyone already knew this but it's still exciting nonetheless” tidbits.

If you're unfamiliar with Korean food, the buffet line at Purim Oak offers a fine introduction.Not being a big fan of buffets, I barely glanced at it after walking down the long ramp that leads into the Towson restaurant's paneled dining rooms. It took 10 minutes of wrestling with the eight-page menu to realize that my friends and I needed help -- more than our waitress was able to provide.There were categories for everything from rice to barbecue -- the one for home-style stews alone listed 16 choices.

On Thursday, the entire staffs of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games were given pink slips. The company, which released “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” (which I reviewed in February ), was in partnership with the state of Rhode Island to bring jobs into the state and give former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling's 38 Studios fuel to evolve into a big-time game developer. The company was in the midst of developing a project called “Copernicus,” an MMORPG based in the same universe as “Amalur.” Big Huge Games, based in Timonium, became a subsidiary of 38 Studios almost three years ago to the day. The Sun's Gus Sentementes was over at Big Huge ' s offices before being booted out today , but it seems the entire teams at both companies have indeed been let go. WPRI has an exce llent timeline of how the tax credit and loan between the state of Rhode Island and 38 Studios developed.
