The 40th anniversary of Chez Panisse in Berkeley hasn't passed without notice. Here's a nice, long piece from Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle.  I've never been but features colleague Michael Sragow has -- he was teaching a Berkeley graduate journalism course on writing on film. He just told me that Chez Panisse was one of the few things that entirely lived up to its reputation. " Baltimore photographer and Zagat editor Marty Katz told me that when he showed up at Chez Panisse in between the breakfast and lunch sevice the staff took pity on him and brought out fresh muffins for him. And here are pictures and coverage from Friday night's anniversary party at the Berkeley Museum of Art (Eater SF)

He often pays the bills doing commercials. So Robert Kenner, director of Food, Inc., knew how to use snappy advertising graphics - the kind usually employed by giant food companies - to pull audiences into his scathingly enjoyable expose of Big Agra. Kenner placed the movie's opening credits on supermarket shelves, where typical logos present images from America's pastoral past to hawk products made on assembly lines. It's a sprightly, clever way for Kenner to announce, as he puts it, "It's OK to laugh: I want you to be entertained."

The question seemed a good one at the time: Had the quality of gas-station food risen with the price of gas? If you're a pay-at-the-pump patron like me, you probably don't get inside gas stations often. So you might be surprised to learn that they now offer far more than leathery wieners set on rollers. Chevron gas station/Sunshine General Store Address --22300 Georgia Ave., Brookeville Phone --301-774-7428 Gas --$3.75 a gallon After a fellow motorcyclist raved about the place, we decided to check it out. Its ambience alone makes it worth the drive.

Food: *** (3 STARS) Service: *** (3 STARS) Atmosphere: *** (3 STARS) Rub seems as if it's in the middle of nowhere. When you get to the corner of Light and Wells, the neighborhood will be quiet, dark, even deserted. A large neon sign beckons, but the authentic rundown Texas bar look of the place doesn't quite hold up on close inspection. There are too many signs about the shuttle to the Ravens game, and the massive hardwood doors are too highly varnished to be anything but expensive and new. Open those doors and light, noise and fragrant smoke spill out into the night, welcoming you in. This is chef-owner Michael Marx's newest project, the one that follows the Mexican restaurant Blue Agave, which he sold last year.

Eating at a Ravens or Orioles game is hardly cheap, but at least it's not as expensive as having a few beers at Fenway Park or a hot dog at San Jose Sharks games.According to a survey by SportsBusiness Journal, the venerable home of the Red Sox is also home to the most expensive concessions in professional sports. The beer prices by themselves, $4 for a 12-ounce brew, are the fifth-highest in sports.Maryland's teams did fairly well in the rankings, which compare prices charged by each of the 94 North American major-league )

WITH ALL OF the construction going on at Francis Scott Key High School, holding a band competition there is just about impossible.While the competition would be limited to the school stadium, other bands would need room to warm up and plenty of parking would be needed for cars and buses.However, all of the parking along the practice fields on the west side of the campus has been temporarily eliminated because of the construction -- the school is being expanded and renovated. Without that parking, the logistics for a band competition would be a nightmare.
