Is there any bar or nightclub in Baltimore worth a $20 cover charge? If so - and I'm not convinced there is - it certainly was not Paparazzi Nightclub on a recent Friday night. The dance club that replaced the concert venue Sonar in February describes itself on its website as "one of the top destinations to visit in Baltimore nightlife. " It was only a destination if someone were in search of a test of patience. Paparazzi is split into two rooms, just like Sonar . On this night, the smaller area held a "Ladies Night" hosted by 92Q's Konan.

Cafe Asia, the latest restaurant to open in the Power Plant Live! complex, is now also a nightclub. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays around 10:30 p.m. the dinner lights go down, the laser lights come on and the tables are pushed back to make room for dancing. (Don't worry; if your table is on the dance floor and you're still chowing down on pad thai at 10:30, you won't be tipped out of your chair.) Perched high above the smooth wooden dance floor is a pagoda-style booth where local DJs spin progressive, house and Latin beats.

Tonight's Inner Harbor fireworks will be bigger and brighter than usual because the city has amassed an extra-large stockpile of shells. Since two of the four weekend fireworks shows planned for December were canceled due to inclement weather, Baltimore's Office of Promotion used its credit for unused shells to purchase a wider range of fireworks for New Year's Eve, according to director Bill Gilmore. The festivities, orchestrated by Zambelli Internationale, are to begin at 11:59 p.m.Non-alcoholic parties at the Convention Center will be held from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., with performances by the Marvelettes, Mama Jama, a cappella harmonizing from Regency, comedian Bob Somerby and others.

Here's the thing about good ole Bengies: It's not just a drive-in movie theater, it's an institution. In fact, it's been nominated one of Maryland's official treasures as part of the state's Year 2000 celebration. Reports of Bengies' demise have been frequent and premature. The Big B survives, hard by Frog Mortar Creek in southeastern Baltimore County, one of only two remaining drive-ins in Maryland. There are only 520 left in the United States. For nostalgic reasons, Baltimore-area baby boomers - including this one - would like to see the Bengies live on forever, under the management of D. Edward Vogel, a passionate drive-in man whose family has been in the business for a couple of generations.
