Complaints about a large group of aggressive prostitutes on a stretch of North Calvert Street prompted a police sweep netting 18 arrests by early yesterday -- most of them males wearing women's clothing, authorities said. Sgt. Craig Gentile, the Central District vice squad commander, said the department had received complaints in the past two weeks from more than a dozen people -- including several transvestites who live in the neighborhood -- about loud, often vulgar, skimpily dressed people soliciting motorists and pedestrians along a four-block stretch of Calvert from Read to Preston streets.

The wrecking ball completed its work this week when it leveled "No. 10 Downing Street," the old cafeteria on the east side of Calvert between Baltimore and Fayette streets whose real name was Bickford's. For decades, it had been one of Baltimore's most storied and hallowed political hangouts. And now, to passers-by and sidewalk superintendents, the only thing remaining of the demolished building is the brick-lined footprint of its cellar, which no doubt will soon give way to the rapacious demands of its wreckers.

The Baltimore Sun Co. has scrapped plans to sell the newspaper's North Calvert Street offices to a real estate affiliate of the Johns Hopkins Institutions, according to a company memorandum issued yesterday.The decision to end negotiations on the deal -- in which the Sun Co. would have sold its property to Dome Corp. for $10 million and then leased space from it after a lengthy $10 million renovation -- stems from an ownership change involving the six-story 501 N. Calvert St. building and a 650-space parking garage next door.

With "VEEP and "Game Change" produced here, I have been writing a lot about Baltimore standing in for Washington. But Wednesday afternoon, the TV sleight of hand hit a little too close to home when the Calvert Street entrance to the Sun said in big bold letters "The Washington Herald. " Happily, it was not real institutional change -- just a little more TV magic as the crew for the $100 million Netflix series "House of Cards" had "dressed" the building for scenes to be shot later this week.

On Nightlife No, Club X Ultra Lounge is not a strip joint. Though its name (actually pronounced Club Ten), location (10 S. Calvert St.) and facade (bright purple lights) might suggest otherwise, the place has a solid mix of style, attitude and class. I wouldn't be surprised to see the month-old lounge turn into a regular weekend hangout for the city's high-rolling 30-something set. Parking is free on most of Calvert Street late at night, but if you can't find a spot less than a block or two away, it is safer to use the valet service.

When a friend asked me to an opening event for Young Audiences, I was caught unawares. Could Remington's newest arts and food destination be ready so soon? It seemed like only few months ago this old tire shop at 26th and Howard streets still had the unmistakable auto garage aroma. But this week the trucks were unloading the new commercial dishwashers and carpenters were fitting out the newly named Parts & Labor, the butcher shop and pub that will start serving Maryland craft beers alongside plates of local sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes later this year.

In the 21 years that the Baltimore Symphony Associates has sponsored tours of decorators' show houses, the group has never featured a residence in or close to downtown Baltimore, and it has never featured a rowhouse.That will change next year, with the group's selection of a 55-room mansion called Solomon's Corner as the 1998 Symphony Decorators' Show House.The five-level, 16,000-square-foot dwelling, at 1201 N. Calvert St., is actually two rowhouses combined into one. It has never been on a public house tour.
