Diners rejoice! Baltimore City is celebrating its summer Restaurant Week through Aug. 10, and Baltimore County restaurants kick off their celebration Friday. The events offer a great way to discover new places and fresh tastes or revisit old favorites at a discount. But while you're enjoying your meal, consider the servers and restaurant staff who make the dining experience.

Under Howard County law, smoking in all county restaurants and bars, and within 15 feet of entry doors, becomes illegal at midnight tomorrow. Main Street in Historic Ellicott City is exempted from the 15-foot rule because of the narrow sidewalks. County government officials have said they will enforce the law by responding to complaints, not by inspecting bars and restaurants. Penalties start with a $100 civil citation for each infraction.
