At age 100, the commercial building at 120 W. North Ave. has enjoyed prosperity and suffered humiliation. It's now soon to become an arts center in the Station North neighborhood, whose transformation I've been watching for the past few years. Perhaps its worst hour happened in 2012, when the Fire Department ordered it closed. Inspectors took one look at the outdated 1914 wiring and said, "Shut it down. " Its main tenant, the Single Carrot Theatre , promptly moved out. "The electrical box was like something out of a Dr. Frankenstein movie," said Laurens "Mac" MacLure, director of the Baltimore Arts Realty Corp., who gave a tour of the roomy structure this week, as his group has been completing plans for a $6 million upgrade.

Use it in a sentence in a comment below, and the best sentence will be featured next week. This week's word: LACHRYMOSE If you are tearful or given to weeping, people may call you lachrymose.

Far from the smoothest production imaginable, and a little too reminiscent of a typical, lightweight PBS fundraiser, the "Star-Spangled Spectacular" concert Saturday night at Pier Six nonetheless delivered a decent level of entertainment for a sizable, enthusiastic crowd. In his opening remarks, the host, actor John Lithgow, called the program "a tribute to a great national treasure, American music. " That meant mostly the pop side of the musical spectrum, of course, since this event was nationally broadcast and nothing too classical would likely have been approved.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, whose once wholesome reputation took a blow in a high-profile domestic violence case this year, will no longer "raise the green flag" for M&T Bank. Rice has starred in one of the bank's most recognizable and successful branding efforts for the past four years, but the Ravens-themed advertising campaign kicked off Monday without the former pitchman. None of his teammates appear in the ads either. M&T's new advertisements instead stress the team effort between the the Ravens and their corporate sponsor, with the spokesman role shifting to Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, team President Dick Cass and the bank's president of the Baltimore region, Augie Chiasera.

Aggio, the serenely pretty new restaurant at Power Plant Live, invites you to take a pleasure cruise through contemporary Italian cuisine. Your captain is Bryan Voltaggio, the genial chef who first gained national exposure as a contestant on "Top Chef. " If Voltaggio is not a name in your household, know that it is in those that follow dining news as entertainment. He is, to put it plainly, a celebrity chef. But don't let that stop you. In culinary circles, Voltaggio is better known for his flagship restaurant Volt, which he opened in 2008 in his hometown of Frederick, and which continues to operate, six summers later, as a modernist dining mecca, the kind of place that diners plan their visits for months in advance.
