These can be lonely times for an Orioles fan in New York City. But just like the team they love, Orioles fans always find a way. Orioles fans enisled on Manhattan have started flocking to the Horsebox, a two-and-a-half year old bar on Avenue A in the East Village. "I was born in Baltimore, grew up in Annapolis," said The Horsebox's owner David Pettebone. "And my partner, Noel Foley, who's from Carlow, Ireland, fell in love with the Orioles, too. We always have on our O's caps behind the bar. " Patrons, some of them Marylanders attending New York University, took notice.

There are likely many audience members for the tour of the musical Rent who never saw New York's East Village before it was gentrified, do not recall the AIDS crisis before treatments improved and do not understand why an amateur filmmaker would use film instead of a digital camera. But the show's cast and crew say the passage of 12 years hasn't stopped patrons, particularly young ones, from embracing the show's snapshot of bohemian life in the early 1990s. "There are kids who were little children or babies when Rent opened," Broadway producer Jeffrey Seller said.

The first track on the East Village Opera Company's self-titled CD opens with a string quartet playing the familiar melody of the overture to Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro. Then the driving drum set kicks in, followed by electric guitar and, in the mix, the organ part from the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again." The three-year-old EVOC is earning a reputation for turning highbrow into hybrid with its rock-inspired rewrites of opera's greatest hits. The group plans to introduce local audiences to arias that rock with two vocalists, a five-piece rock band and a string quartet at the Columbia Festival of the Arts on June 17. The festival, which runs through June 24, begins tomorrow with a free three-day "LakeFest" including visual art, music and family entertainment at the Columbia Town Center lakefront.

Josh Adams was among the displaced Marylanders who found their way to Avenue A to watch the Orioles take on the Yankees in ALDS Game 3. Here's Josh's report: The Horsebox was packed with Orioles fans, making it feel like a little slice of Fells Point in the East Village.
