Beyond a brick facade lining an upper Fells Point alley, a visitor can travel from Versailles to Florence to ancient, ruined Greece to your nana's cozy kitchen. In the 27 years that Vince Peranio has lived here, he has gradually transformed five decrepit rowhouses into a single meandering fantasy that transcends time, space and place. For Peranio, a production designer for John Waters, Barry Levinson and other television and film directors, these modest rowhouses harbor a back lot ideal for creating the home movie set of his dreams.

These are not "Maryland-style" crab cakes! That's what the online seafood store The Crab Place says about its crab cakes. "Maryland-style uses foreign crab meat to replicate an authentic Maryland crab cake. Maryland-style is found in franchise restaurants across the country. CrabPlace.com crab cakes are 100% real Maryland crab cakes. We are one of the few companies still producing them this way. " It took us a long time to find an online seafood company that handles Maryland-caught blue crabs.

The dish: Chicken Wrap Deluxe, $8.95 at Crush Cafe Did they really grill this chicken? It had the yielding tenderness of rotisserie white meat. Rather than masking a poorly rendered main ingredient with competing tastes from lettuce, tomato and bacon, the kitchen seemed intent on making sure the whole was the sum of great parts. Swiss cheese played far off in the background. Romaine and tantalizing tomato strips struck a nice balance. In fact they were essential foils to the hearty sugar maple bacon that imparted too much sweetness to the vinaigrette.

I will be going to Asia this summer, and have the option of staying over in Japan at the end of the tour. I'd like to stay in one of the traditional inns called ryokans. Your opinion, please.Staying at a traditional Japanese inn is a great idea for traditional Japanese, but it can be a shock for the rest of us. But do it anyway.During a visit to Japan's northern island, Hokkaido, I stayed at two ryokans (pronounced ree-OH-cuns). According to travel writers' tales, it would be like this: Live briefly as the Japanese live in their homes, savor superb food, bathe luxuriously, gain serenity in the simple beauty of a tatami-matted room.

It's that dreadful time of year that accountants happily call tax season. Microsoft offers an excellent scheme that bundles H&R Block's Kiplinger Tax Cut software with the new version of Microsoft's Money product for keeping home accounts and plotting saving/investing strategies. It would take a tax accountant to explain the skein of rebates in the offer, but you buy Money in either Standard ($35) or Deluxe ($65) editions and then you get a rebate of up to $35 if you buy Tax Cut ($10 or $20)

I just saw this on FatWallet and it spoke to me. I think every man has at one point in his life thought about opening up his own bar or at the very least brewing his own beer. I'll start with the latter: lower start up costs, much less work, and little risk of it leading to bankruptcy. Amazon.com has everything you need for $30 with free shipping.

Anthony Bullock takes the "picnic" part of Baltimore's annual Stone Soul Picnic seriously. Under a shady mesh shelter, the former Reservoir Hill resident had set out 25 pounds of snow crab legs, fried chicken, grilled fish, deviled eggs, chicken salad, macaroni salad, potato salad and collard greens, all prepared in his Perryville home. He had gone to Pennsylvania for corn on the cob, and made the sauce for his barbecue beef to feed 30 guests in his party, along with sundry police officers and fellow picnickers.

City sophisticates seek out Mount Vernon's museums, galleries and fine dining. But what could soon become the urban neighborhood's hottest ticket is designed to appeal to a less-cultured, though no less discriminating palate: that of toddlers. A determined cadre of Mount Vernon parents united two years ago with the mission of bringing child's play to an area of town better known for more mature cultural pastimes. And after raising an impressive bankroll, the neighborhood will soon turn a run-down park into what promises to be one of the city's most deluxe playgrounds - including a computerized water feature and a hedge maze.

Here's a summer dream: Sailing on a pristine lake, hiking a wilderness trail, spending hours playing basketball, tennis or golfing with close friends. For a century or more, well-to-do American families sent their youngsters to the finest rural camps in the summer months to reap the benefits of fresh air and exercise, and get away from the swelter, congestion and problems of the big cities. Today, the most exclusive summer camps do all that and a whole lot more. And despite a faltering economy, a war in the Middle East, and continued post-9 / 11 troubles in the travel industry, owners of these top-flight camps say they've never been more popular.
