" The Onion " took a jab at Baltimore's long struggle with drugs in a story this week. The satiric site reported that Oriole Park at Camden Yards would no longer sell crack after the seventh inning. “From now on, fans who have been hitting the pipe all afternoon can take a bit of a breather to come down and stop tweaking out long enough to stagger home safely," the site quotes a stadium official as saying. "That's what Orioles baseball is all about.” The story concludes by saying that stadium workers "would continue to check IDs for everyone seeking to purchase crack, noting that - per Baltimore city regulations - sales of the drug are prohibited to anyone 14 years of age or younger.

The first chilly night of the fall kept business brisk at the Arundel High School concession stand. At halftime of the boys' soccer match against South River on Thursday, at least 20 people stretched along the fence to buy hot dogs and hot chocolate. Behind the counter, five or six volunteers ran about filling cocoa cups, frying fries and ringing up customers at the window. The stand was well-lit and roomy, and the giant freezers and cooking equipment were no more than two years old. "There are restaurants that aren't as well-equipped as this," said Bernie Walter, the school's athletic director.

The cost of an Oriole Park meal will rise this year, but families that order carefully should be able to skirt some of the higher prices.Beer, soft drinks, hot dogs and nachos -- ballpark cuisine at its finest -- are scheduled for increases, according to price lists released yesterday.Joe Foss, Orioles vice chairman for business operations, attributed some of the price increases to higher-quality foods being served this season.This year, concession stands and vendors will offer only all-beef hot dogs, and kosher will replace kosher-style franks, he said.

This weekend, the Ravens kick off a new season, one that pigskin prognosticators say might not be too pleasing to watch. Yet whether the team wins, loses or has a game-deciding field goal dangle on the uprights, fans can enjoy the eats. That is what I did last week while watching the preseason struggle between the Ravens and the Falcons at M&T Bank Stadium.

Carroll County youths who play recreational sports might have to pay more than usual this spring to be in the lineup.The county Health Department has asked recreation councils to comply with regulations that would limit items sold at many of Carroll's concession stands. In some cases, the councils would be limited to selling prepackaged foods.No more hot dogs. Nachos would be out also.In Union Bridge, the change is expected to translate into less revenue. As a result, youths will have to buy their pants this spring if they want to play baseball or softball.

Catonsville High School Principal William Heiser and nearly a dozen regional dignitaries helped the Catonsville Comet Booster Club officially open a new concession stand at Comet Park on Friday, Oct. 4. The attractive, single-story block construction features a spacious kitchen area serving through two large windows, a separate window for spirit clothing sales, and full restrooms. The much-anticipated facility, replacing an old concession stand nearly hidden behind the bleachers, is one step along the way in a well-defined plan, orchestrated and partially financed by the boosters, to completely renovate Comet Park and the surrounding athletic fields.

Every now and then we'll offer a lunch-time gathering of news and links related to sports business: Jack Lambert of the Baltimore Business Journal wrote last week that the Ravens quietly unveiled a $250,000 makeover of the general concession stand near Section 101 during the team's Nov. 11 game with the Raiders. The new stand, which allows consumers to see food being prepared, is a prototype that could be used as the team seeks to update the first level of the 14-year-old stadium, according to the story.

Give the Orioles credit: They sure do stadium renovations well. Way better than they play ball. I say that after getting a sneak peek Wednesday at all the changes to Camden Yards we've been hearing so much about. Bottom line? You're going to love what they've done to the place, even if you're a hard-core fan who's not big on a lot of architectural frou-frou at the ballpark. Assuming, that is, there are any hard-core baseball fans left. "I think we still have hard-core fans," said Janet Marie Smith, Orioles vice president of planning and development.

At the top of the seventh inning Monday night, despair was setting in at Camden Yards. The Orioles trailed the Minnesota Twins by three runs, and there was little time for the team to pick up the slack. It was the kind of moment that could have used the numbing effect of beer to stave off the feeling of doom, or at least make the eventual loss go down easier. The only vendor nearby was selling Budweiser and Miller Lite. It was exactly what I'd heard about Oriole Park's beer selection: heavy on the domestic brews, and expensive to boot.

It's axiomatic in the restaurant business that you don't want to open for business on a Saturday night without first having a couple of less-hectic days under your belt, to break in the staff and work out the bugs.The Ravens will be operating under the same philosophy tonight, when they open their new stadium for a dress rehearsal.The event, open to 53,000 season-ticket holders, features limited action: a team practice that will last a little more than an hour. And don't look for laser shows or headlining performers -- that will come when the place opens for real, for the Sept.

There'll be plenty of hot dogs and hamburgers at the Ravens' stadium when it opens this summer. But there may be a few surprises, as well, such as dolphin-fish sandwiches for games against Miami, or buffalo-meat hamburgers when the Bills come to play.Fine Host Corp., the Ravens' concessionaire, received its liquor license from the city yesterday, and in the process revealed plans for what fans can expect at the $220 million stadium.Among the ideas under development: a tailgating area with tents alongside the stadium for corporate sponsors to lease on game days; a faster system of all-purpose cashiers who both serve food and take money; and regional cuisine, including crabcakes, pit beef, cheesesteak sandwiches and locally brewed beers.

HOW COLD WAS it at the Orioles' opening game? It was so cold that I had to put on insulated gloves to drink my beer. It was so cold that I went in search of a bowl of hot crab soup, not once, not twice, but three times and came up empty. Twice I stood in line at the Big Mario's Pizzeria concession stand on the ground-level first-base side and was told the soup was not ready yet. Then I went to another Big Mario Pizzeria on the third-base side. Despite a sign that promised "homemade soups," none was served.

The sandwiches and salads are flying off the counter. The cookies are selling out quickly. And the coffee - well, it's fresh and hot and easy to grab during a quick break from work in Howard Circuit Court. After two years of going without, the county's circuit courthouse now has a lunch stand to call its own. Two weeks after Nixon's Farm of West Friendship moved into a tiny corner of the building, courthouse employees are making sure to grab their favorite salads before the stand sells out, and customers are singing the new shop's praises.
