Are you ready for Sunday night's two-hour "Mad Men" season premiere? Take a look at our photo gallery of cocktails and dishes inspired by the airless, joyless overproduced television show. We found recipes for classic dishes from Danny's, The Chesapeake and the Harvey House and other Baltimore restaurants that flourished in the 1960s. And read David Zurawik's hilarious post on the momentous televison event. Tonight is the Drink Like a Mad Men Party at the Creative Alliance, featuring classic cocktails crafted by Doug Atwell of Rye. The party will include appetizers and hors d'ouevres that were popular during the 1960s, as well as music and visuals from the same era. Atwell will be talking about some of those classic cocktails Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. on WBAL radio 1090.

Remember the good old days, when you threw a dinner party and all you had to worry about was finding a topic everyone could talk about? Now, you have a much harder task: to find a dish everyone can eat. Two culprits bear the blame -- the rise of food allergies in America, and food writer Michael Pollan. More than 12 million Americans have a known food allergy. And tens of millions more have food intolerances. My wife recently found out that she shouldn't eat lactose, gluten, corn, turkey or chicken.

Why do fools fall out of love? That's the central question posed by Neil Simon's 31st and latest play, "The Dinner Party." Part farce and part mystery, the play is unusual for Simon not only because of its hybrid form but also because of its shift in tone. Although "The Dinner Party" starts out as a laugh fest, it ends on a bittersweet note, rather like a meal that begins with dessert and ends with an entrM-ie so highly seasoned, it makes your eyes water. The result, receiving an appealing East Coast premiere at Washington's Kennedy Center, may not be a major work, but it is highly enjoyable - a divertissement that, while light, leaves you pondering the complexities and perplexities of love and romance.

WINTER IS usually a good time to stay indoors. However, after a few days of being holed up in your abode, you can get lonely and bored. One remedy to winter's isolation is to invite some friends over for a meal. You can call it a dinner party if you like. But, according to Elaine Corn, the idea of giving a dinner party makes some folks break out in cold sweat.Corn is an experienced hand at having people over. For example, back in the 1980s, when she was a newspaper reporter in Louisville, Ky., she had about 80 people over to her house for country biscuits and coleslaw.

THERE ARE CERTAIN laws of the universe that intelligent women know not to violate: don't count your chickens before they're hatched, don't wear pleats and don't ever try to fix up two people.But why not Jenny and John, I thought? Two smart, fun people, both single. . .The thought set my little heart a-fluttering and before you knew it the dinner party invitations were in the mail.I decided to go with a menu that I'd fixed many, many times before with great success: a very fattening fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and scallops, homemade rolls and a nice, fresh salad.

Plays about dinner parties appear to be in vogue in this area nowadays. Olney Theatre Center is serving up a gourmet meal nightly in the apocalyptic Omnium Gatherum, and on a smaller scale, the Vagabond Players has set the table for Neil Simon's 2000 comedy The Dinner Party. The setting - a private dining room in a chic Paris restaurant - is something of an oddity for Simon, and the Vagabonds' elegantly detailed set, designed and built by Tony Colavito, is a piece de resistance. But the play itself is less satisfying.

OPERA ALWAYS HAS been a chichi production. Whether it's a stage production or a Baltimore Opera Guild dinner party, it's grand. The guild's most recent party, "Romeo et Juliette," was a black-tie event at the home of Donna and Sterling Leppo, whose lovely home is in the Cold Saturday development, once the privately owned Cold Saturday Farm. The Leppos very kindly lent the use of their home and its outdoor setting for the party.Cocktails and silent auction items were served up in a terrace-level tent and a buffet was served later in a tent on the lower level.

During the photo shoot, every parent in the United States who was watching had the same thought: "Thank goodness Milania is not my daughter.

Teresa then has a dessert debut party for all her close friends to taste her new products.

The premise behind Stone's Cove Kitbar, a new restaurant in Owings Mills, is that people at a party tend to gather in the kitchen, where they are kept entertained and diverted by watching their host prepare dinner. Why not, thought B.J. Stone, the CEO and founder of Stone's Cove Kitbar, create a restaurant experience that puts diners right in the kitchen - or at least close to it? And, while you're at it, why not put the booze where the kitchen is, just like it would be in someone's house, where the host can fetch guests a cold beer from the fridge or mix a cocktail, and not have to worry about a pot boiling over?

This is the penultimate episode of season three of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and I am already having withdrawal. I have learned so much from these ladies: How to best shade an adversary (Lisa's dignified side-eyes and brush-offs are like intricate tapestries of disrespect), how not to treat your loving husband (here's looking at you, Marissa) and most importantly, how to best ruin a dinner party. If I'm waxing nostalgic now, I'll probably be slumped in a corner with a Botox needle lodged in my forehead next week.
