Nearly everybody loves a good Mexican restaurant. A bowl of chips and a dish of spicy, fresh salsa put smiles on even the saddest faces. So it's good to hear that the small, local chain La Tolteca has opened a new outpost. The restaurant on York Road in Cockeysville opened in January, and since Day 1, it has been a hit with the locals. Scene & Decor When we arrived around 6:30 on a Thursday evening, we groaned at the sight of a full parking lot and the crowd at the door. La Tolteca was packed.

You can frequently catch a glimpse of the International Space Station flying overhead, but rarely is a Baltimore native aboard. There are several good opportunities to see the orbiter zipping across the night sky this week. On a clear night, the space station appears like a star, only brighter, and moving steadily across the sky. Here is where and when to look: Monday night at 10:41 p.m., look to the southwest horizon. The space station will pass by the "Big Dipper" around 10:45 as it reaches its highest point in the sky, and it will set in the northeast about 10:49 p.m. Tuesday night, the space station will pass directly overhead, rising in the southwest at 9:52 p.m., reaching the center of the sky about 9:56, and setting in the northeast at 10 p.m. Wednesday morning it will again pass directly overhead, but this time from northwest to southeast, from 4:22 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. If that's a bit early for you, it will appear again Wednesday night, rising in the southwest about 9:03 p.m., passing the reddish-tinted planet Mars before reaching its highest point, toward the southeastern sky, about 9:07 p.m. and setting in the northeast about 9:11 p.m. Friday night, look to the southwest at 9:02 p.m. The space station will pass the "Big Dipper" a few minutes later and set in the northeast about 9:10 p.m. It should be bright enough to see even in the city, though it's always best to look somewhere away from urban light pollution.

It's one thing to spot your house or hometown from an airplane window. Astronaut Reid Wiseman waved to his parents and their Baltimore County home from hundreds of miles up Sunday. "Been waitin' a while to fly over Maryland," Wiseman said via Twitter early Sunday morning, along with a photo snapped from an International Space Station window clearly showing the Chesapeake Bay. "Hi mom and dad!" Wiseman launched to the space station last month, and has since been posting daily updates, including views of all corners of the globe.
