WADMALAW ISLAND, S.C. -- Green-yellow tea plants reach into the distance at the Charleston Tea Plantation as a green harvester slowly makes its way down one row, gently cutting the youngest leaves from atop the bushes to make them into American Classic Tea. The only commercial tea plantation in North America is again in production and on May 11, began officially welcoming visitors again to see how tea is processed. "What we have here is a gem," said William Hall, a third-generation English-trained tea taster and partner in the plantation.

THE SPOLETO FESTIVAL USA and Charleston, S.C., were made for each other. One offers art; the other is art. The city creates a magical atmosphere for festival-goers. When one leaves a production of Wolfgang Mozart's Don Giovanni, he or she isn't slammed back into the 21st century. It's more like a walk through time. Giant live oaks and walls of fragrant oleander shelter sidewalks. Brick walls sprout resurrection fern. Stucco flakes from the walls of 250-year-old buildings. Horse hooves click and carriage wheels rumble.

The James Beard Awards are the Academy Awards for the world of food, but they don't announce the nominees on the Today Show. They send e-mails. And if you are a busy chef, like Cindy Wolf of Baltimore's posh Charleston restaurant, you don't have time to check your e-mail, and it might be ages before you get around to seeing the printout left for you by a staff member. "It was a Saturday morning and I was at my desk, on the phone, setting up an interview and I was in a hurry to get back to the stove," Wolf said.

If you had asked me before I went back over my reviews what 2005 was like in the local restaurant scene, I would have said, "uneventful." Wow, was that wrong. It completely slipped under my radar that I had gone to an astounding 37 new places this year. And that doesn't count restaurants that essentially reinvented themselves, such as Charleston, which now has a prix fixe small plates menu. The attention I had to pay to new places left only nine weeks to revisit old friends like Ten-o-Six and Tio Pepe.

How do you like your food? When you eat out do you want your meal to be a delicious backdrop to an evening with friends? Or do you want it to grab you and demand that you pay serious attention to it? Do you like to ponder the textural contrast of a tiny morsel of silky salmon tartare with salty beads of caviar, then roll the flavors on your tongue while you sip a chilled champagne? Or do you just like to eat good food? How you answer those questions may determine how you feel about the newly reopened Charleston in Inner Harbor East.

A couple of hundred lucky folks were most definitely up for an opening night at Artscape last weekend. Literally. They gathered on the top of the Meyerhoff garage for a party celebrating opening night. Not only did guests get a birds-eye view of the goings-on below on Mount Royal Avenue, but they also had their pick of several tables full of gourmet goodies. Cocktails - along with the occasional breeze - helped guests keep their cool. Partygoers Jannette Witmyer, Maria Broom and Gwen Richards were in high spirits, as they grooved to the tunes floating up from Artscape's main stage.
