Well I reckon if you're going to throw a big pie-themed party in Baltimore, it makes good sense to have Rodney "The Pie Man" Henry on board.  Sure enough, Henry, the founder of Baltimore's Dangerously Delicious Pies, will be bringing his inimitable "Pie Style" to   PIE at the Patterson , a pie-themed party at the Creative Alliance on Friday night. Henry will be among the judges for the evening's centerpiece, a creative pie-making contest open to all guests.

In 1974, when Meg Wolitzer was 15 years old, she went away to a camp for aspiring young artists. Once that summer was over, Wolitzer never again thought of herself in quite the same way. Unlike Wolitzer, most of the kids she met came from privileged backgrounds. They attended private schools, lived in apartments overlooking New York's Central Park, and sprinkled their conversations with literary allusions. In their still-forming personalities, irony mixed uneasily with idealism. They had big dreams of one day living a life of the mind.

Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, already a known Annapolis arts destination, solidified that role last Sunday with a celebration unveiling the results of its $1.6 million renovation - a project that includes 543 new seats, an orchestra pit, stage extension and improved acoustics. Brief performances were offered by Maryland Hall's four resident companies: Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, Annapolis Opera, Annapolis Chorale and Ballet Theatre of Maryland. The 170 voices of the Annapolis Chorale, together with the chamber orchestra, opened the concert auspiciously with "O fortuna" from "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff.

Standing at her easel on the bridge over the Patapsco River at the base of Ellicott City's historic Main Street, Sam Alger was pleased with the visual elements of the scene she'd staked out earlier in the summer. Arched stone B&O Railroad overpass? Check. Dappled water with lazy interplay of light and shadow? Check. Cool shade on her back? Not so much. She hadn't anticipated the relentless rays of sunshine when she picked a spot to paint, but two out of three wasn't too bad. As she brought the landscape to life in oil paint last Sunday morning, the Longfellow Elementary School art teacher said jokingly that at least she wouldn't have to worry about turning in a still-wet entry to "Paint It!

While growing up in a well-to-do Richmond, Va., family, Rob Levit never knew quite what to do with the surge of energy he often felt racing through him like a current. He hadn't mastered an instrument or learned to paint. He had no hankering to write. So he did the only thing he could think of. He became the class clown. "I was always getting in trouble," says Levit, 44, an improvisational jazz guitarist with 15 music CDs and an international performing career to his credit.

Southern High School student Zoe Kasprzyk describes herself as shy and quiet. Though the 17-year-old senior has held several leadership positions in school organizations such as in the Tri-M Music Honor Society and the National Arts Honor Society, she acknowledges that she struggles to express herself verbally. But Kasprzyk recently received national recognition for her preferred method of sharing her emotions. The Tracys Landing resident was named the lone recipient of the National Art Education Association's 2014 Rising Stars Secondary Recognition award for her work with oil paintings, primarily self portraits reflecting her moods.

The museum, at 2010 Clipper Park Road, is open Thursday nights, Sunday afternoons and by appointment. Information: 410-523-2574.

Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

In a scene from the documentary "A Place of Truth," opening Thursday at the Creative Alliance , Abi Mott sits behind a small desk on a city street corner with a sign that reads: "Name a price. Pick a subject. Get a poem. " She is greeted by a customer and after a quick exchange of money; she enters words on a vintage typewriter. Moments later, Mott hands her customer a short poem and smiles. "This is what she wrote for me," says the customer, eyes filled with tears, as she begins to read the lyrics out loud.

Last winter, Rachel Millman began searching for a home in Baltimore. She combed through listings online, but the work of narrowing down her search based on static images became tedious. What if, instead, she could take a video tour through each house, and use a slightly more dynamic medium to decide whether to schedule an in-person tour? When Millman closed on her new home in Canton this year, having already pitched her idea to a number of receptive real estate agents she had met along the way, she knew this was the right moment.

Local sourcing and seasonally driven menus are no longer new on the dining scene. But they are still a phenomenon to praise and, when a restaurant is particularly innovative, celebrate. Canteen, a laid back Station North spot, deserves that celebration. The setting is cool, casual and friendly. The hearty food is equally low-key - more comforting than fancy - but it is thoughtful, creatively seasoned, often using Asian spices, and surprising in small ways. Scene & Decor Canteen occupies the fantastic Station North space where the Bohemian Coffee House used to reside.

"Wry Martinis," by Christopher Buckley. Random House. 291 pages. $22.As Christopher Buckley acknowledges up front, this is mostly a collection of his magazine pieces, many of them for the New Yorker, where he is a frequent (and frequently hilarious) contributor to the "Shouts and Murmurs" column.Traditionally, publishers feel that emblazoning the word "collection" on a humor book's dust jacket is tantamount to announcing: "This product was made from the skin of baby seals." But if any potential buyers are put off by the dreaded C-word, it would be a pity, since this is an enormously funny and entertaining compilation.

Arguably, there have been few springs in recent memory when many of us haven't planned to wring every bit of hedonistic pleasure from every holiday. The folks at La Palapa Grill & Cantina on Main Street in Ellicott City plan to cater to pleasure seekers over a multi-day fiesta built around Mexico's Independence Day, aka Cinco de Mayo. Truth is, this particular Mexican restaurant has been hosting a continuous fiesta since it opened in 1999, joining its older sibling, Clarksville's El Azteca, and preceding its younger sisters in North Laurel, Silver Spring and Odenton.

Unless you've been held hostage in a Loire Valley vineyard for the past several years, you're aware that beer these days enjoys much of the cachet that used to belong only to wine. Indeed, boutique breweries abound on these shores, and it could almost be said that beer has achieved much the same snob appeal that wine enjoyed for centuries. The phenomenon has myriad adherents and has undoubtedly increased the sales of beer exponentially, arguably without really harming vintners' bottom lines, either.
