The Baltimore Orioles sued the city yesterday, saying that construction of a publicly financed hotel at the convention center is blocking the main entrance to the Camden Yards baseball stadium and that pedestrian detours would be hazardous for hundreds of thousands of fans. The lawsuit filed in Baltimore Circuit Court seeks an injunction to force the opening of the Pratt Street entrance -- near Babe Ruth Plaza -- for two hours before and after games. Arguments are to be presented at a hearing scheduled Friday.

If you were looking for a perfect postscript to this strange Orioles season, maybe it was the moonshot that landed on Eutaw Street in the first inning of the last home game at Camden Yards this year. Jason Giambi, who held a news conference in February to deliver a non-specific apology to Yankees fans for his alleged involvement in the BALCO steroid scandal, launched a towering three-run shot off Erik Bedard and got an enthusiastic ovation from the pro-pinstripe crowd that has long since forgiven him for whatever it was he did that required forgiveness.

I was baiting rat traps in my garden the other night when the phone rang. A friend told me classic movies were at the Hippodrome for a few days, and why not see East of Eden in the manner a wide-screen film should be viewed, in a vintage picture house? I debated but a few minutes, walked out, caught a downtown bus and found myself on Eutaw Street well in advance of curtain time. There, amid a construction scene, I couldn't help notice that the old Baltimore Equitable Society Building has been converted into Maggie Moore's Irish Pub, where I was politely greeted by Michael MacEoin of County Meath, Ireland.

There's a lot of history behind Baltimore's newest Irish restaurant. Maggie Moore's Irish Pub & Restaurant is set to open next week in the old Baltimore Equitable Society Building on Eutaw Street. Owner John Moore says the building was constructed in 1847 as the Eutaw Savings Bank and became headquarters in 1887 for the Equitable Society, a fire insurance company. He says he and partner Bill Carr have spent the last year renovating the 9,000-square-foot place, trying to keep as much of the building's original elements in it as they could.
