So I'm physically exhausted, but my editor is waiting on this column. Yesterday was the annual Hampdenfest, and I'm drained. But by all accounts, it was one of the most successful Hampdenfests ever. Thousands of people lined Chestnut Avenue to enjoy the Toilet Races and to watch bands, including headliner Future Islands. By my personal tally, I was running on four hours of sleep, and, eventually, three Diablo donuts and six raw oysters. I walked nearly 22 miles, traveling the length of the festival back and forth all day.  The postponing of Hampdenfest so as not to interfere with Baltimore City's Star Spangled Celebration actually worked out to Hampdenfest's benefit.

How can you score a date with Mila Kunis?  Many interested men have been wondering the answer to this very question and now a U.S. Marine has shown us the simple steps we need to take.  1) Make a YouTube video nonchalantly asking Kunis for a date.  2) Be a Marine.  Sgt. Scott Moore, of the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, did just that and now he's taking Kunis out.  Here's how Fox described Kunis' response :  And when FOX411 asked Kunis about the invitation over the weekend, her “Benefits” co-star,  Justin Timberlake , assured Moore he was going to make it happen.

Worst date ever! Welcome to Week 5. The remaining “however many” guys pack their bags, don their best hoodies and head to Munich, Germany. I know it's Week 5, but I still can't tell the guys apart and don't really know their names.  The men arrive and are greeted by Chris Harrison, who tells them that there are three dates this week - a one-on-one, a group date and the dreaded two-on-one. The guys head to the hotel, find the date card and Chris butchers the German language as he reads the card aloud.

There are times when it's pretty clear when it's a date: One person asks, one person drives, there's a fancy dinner, maybe even some flowers. But there are times things get murky, confusing and -- worst of all -- casual. The paranoia sets in. And the question plays on loop through your head: What exactly was that afternoon in the coffee shop, that day at the museum, that night at movies? Then, you get the advice that's amazingly simple, yet all together infuriating: You just know. "I think people can pretty much tell," says 18-year-old Martique Smith.

Authorities say a Montgomery County man defrauded several senior citizens of thousands of dollars using online dating sites. Krist Koranteng, 32, of Burtonsville and Laurel was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering. From 2012 to February, authorities said Koranteng and others convinced the elderly victims that they were romantically interested in them online and through phone and text messages, and persuaded them to send money to them.

A new November date for the SAT will conflict this fall with some state championships and the last regular-season football games in the MIAA A Conference, including the Gilman-McDonogh rivalry game. The athletes, however, still will have plenty of time to take the test in the fall if they plan ahead. The College Board moved the SAT date this year from the first Saturday of November to the second Saturday, Nov. 8 -- the date of state championships in cross country, field hockey and boys and girls soccer.

Wednesday is Baltimore's 285th birthday. Or is it? A quick Google search declares July 30, 1729, as the day the city was founded. That's when the colonial assembly of Maryland passed the bill that established Baltimore as a town. But historians such as Fred Shoken say deciding what day to celebrate the city's birth isn't so simple. "It's sort of like, take your pick," Shoken said. The native Baltimorean, who works as a historic preservation consultant, said he prefers Aug. 8. That's when Gov. Benedict Leonard Calvert signed the bill into law. Some also might consider Dec. 31, 1796, the date the city was incorporated, or maybe even Jan. 12, 1730, when surveyors laid out the town.

The On the Run tour, Jay Z and Beyonce's first co-headlining tour together, delivered the type of expensive, finely calibrated spectacle one would expect from a Forbes power couple with a corporate sponsorship on Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium.  If the show seemed like a top-shelf Hollywood production, it is because it was. Throughout the roughly two-and-a-half hour set, the sold-out crowd received the soundtrack it expected, but also a...

Late last week, Tom May - the 27-year-old singer and guitarist for the Philadelphia punk band the Menzingers - waited to board a plane at Texas' Austin-Bergstrom International Airport that would take him to his hometown of Scranton, Pa., for a cousin's wedding. It was one more reminder that he was no longer a kid, and hasn't been for a long time. “People are getting married. People are dying. People are doing all of these things,” May said on the phone. “We always write what we know, like what happens in our lives, and things are starting to get a lot more serious than they ever were before.” April's “Rented World,” the Menzingers' fourth album, signified a gut check.

I CAN REMEMBER when people actually talked about reducing the debt. There were two things wrong with that concept: It was too easy to understand, and we couldn't do it.So we began to talk about reducing the deficit. Reducing, that is, the annual amount by which the debt increases.This gave us some breathing room -- as did the Reagan administration's courageous adherence to the principle that it is evil for the government (as opposed to Republican candidates or individual members of the Department of Housing and Urban Development)

The city-owned Hilton Baltimore convention center hotel lost $2.9 million last year — the best performance in the taxpayer-financed project's history. City officials pointed to the hotel's performance as a sign of progress Wednesday, noting revenues there increased by nearly $9 million from 2012. "We're making progress. We're doing better than we've done before," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake after the release of the hotel's annual audit. "To me, that's a good sign. " Last year, city officials said they had ruled out selling the money-losing project and hoped to turn a profit within a decade.
