We almost missed all of the fun. On a recent Saturday night, a friend and I sat idly at the main upstairs bar at Anastasia, the Italian restaurant by Kali's Restaurant Group that replaced Meli in Fells Point last month. There were 20 or so patrons, fragmented into smaller groups, scattered between our area and a second bar by the entrance. An annual Fells Point bar crawl was winding down, and the neighborhood's energy level - noticeably depleted after 12 hours of raging - permeated here, too. After a Heineken ($6)

OK, I admit it. While the rest of the civilized world was glued to the Super Bowl, the TV in our house was emanating the glow of period drama -- the irresistible "Downton Abbey" on PBS. (I still think the Most Valuable Player Sunday night was Mrs. Hughes, the housekeeper who managed to tackle sexism, anti-Catholicism and smug-ism all in one fabulous game.) For the benefit of those who have not yet caught onto the Downton phenomenon -- and even more for the benefit of those who have -- Midweek Madness offers this unique introduction/recap/documentary:

One wall has a strip of fake flames stretching across it. What to wear -- Jeans and a T-shirt goes for both men and women, with the occasional button-down.

A PARAPLEGIC man is suing a Florida strip joint for being in violation of his civil rights because there is no wheelchair access to upstairs private rooms where he could get a "lap dance." The club owner said he could use a private room downstairs. But the plaintiff's lawyer replied that "separate but equal is not good enough." Sometimes, on controversial issues, we're conflicted as to whether this or that "constitutional right" can possibly be what the Founding Fathers intended. On this one, we're sure.

You can eat upstairs or downstairs at Shapiro's Cafe, at 7 W. Preston St., near the University of Baltimore in Mount Vernon. The fare — deli sandwiches and Middle Eastern wraps — is the same in both areas, but the downstairs caters to the carry-out crowd and the upstairs is aimed at the sit-down set. The upstairs, a space once occupied by Sylvan Beach ice cream shop, seems to be a spot designed to attract faculty members....

You may member Miss Irene's as a singularly louche Fells Point dive bar. It closed a few years ago and was bought and renovated by the chef and management team from the Waterfront Hotel, just down the block. In part because of the mare's nest of pipes and tubes under the cobblestones of Fells Point, this renovation took a long, long time. (Disclosure: At one early point, I was following the renovations at Miss Irene's with the intention of writing about the million little things that go into opening a restaurant.

At 6 o'clock every evening, the Dandie Dinmont terriers are let out of the back room, Greg Sullivan turns the key to close up his antique shop, and - that quickly - he's home. Situated on the corner of Baltimore and High streets in Funkstown, Washington County, the stately Colonial is both home and place of business for Sullivan and his wife, Vicki. The mansion dates from the 1770s. Two wings were added in 1835, and another in 1960. A solarium was built in the 1920s. The Sullivans, looking for a larger property to accommodate their expanding business, bought the 7,800-square-foot mansion in 1982.

Let's say you're going to see a play at the Hippodrome Theatre. The Hipp Cafe inside the building is jampacked, and you're in the mood for something more casual than Maggie Moore's, the Irish restaurant and bar across the street. Until a few weeks ago, you didn't have another nearby bar to hang out pre-show. But now that Bedrock Billiards is open, there's a more colorful, casual member of the growing west side nightlife family. Think of Bedrock Billiards as the laid-back uncle who wore suits with wild colors to weddings but somehow pulled it off. It was probably his attitude - constant, utter coolness - that let him get away with almost anything.

Halfway through a set at Simon's of Butchers Hill, the drummer of the David Wells Trio was onstage tapping and grinning with his mouth shut. Anyone sitting in the upstairs dining room with him could read his mind: "Man, this is some smooooth jazz." And if owner Eugene Jones can lock down a consistently solid lineup four nights a week, Simon's upstairs room will be a routine stop for local jazz lovers. Jones is pretty close right now but still has a kink or two to work out. Jones, formerly the manager of Fat Lulu's, opened the upstairs in November.

Now that winter's (finally) here, having a cigar on the deck out back sounds a lot less relaxing. You bundle up like an Eskimo, totter outdoors, dig through your jacket for the smoke, try to light the matches with gloves on, drop them and curse the cold. By the time the darn thing's lit, you're shivering and asking yourself if it was worth all that. It's not. If you can't light up indoors but still crave a stogie, try one of these cigar bars downtown. The first spot, Max's on Broadway (737 S. Broadway, 410-675-6297)
