Denim, bandannas and cowboy hats were de rigueur under the tent next to the Baltimore Arena. After all, this was the pre-concert VIP reception for the Metris 14th annual concert to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And this year, the featured artists were the Recording Industry of America's "Country Band of the Century" -- Alabama, with local opening act the Hard Travelers. Some 1,100 cowpokes and cowgirls moseyed alongside buffets of barbecue as well as more citified chow, exchanging "howdys" in a right neighborly fashion.

Collaboration is the word of the year in the Baltimore restaurant scene. Every month delivers new announcements about good-natured cooking competitions or chefs "popping up" in one another's restaurants. Baltimore's chefs work hard in their own kitchens, but they also have a great time getting out and playing with the rest of the local culinary community. Over the past few years, chefs say, as the city's food scene has blossomed, so have their relationships. For a handful of Baltimore chefs, the root of those friendships is in volunteering.

FLASHBACK TO THE 1940S AT THE SCOTTISH Rite, courtesy the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The theme for this, the 15th annual Harbor Gala, was "Swanky Club Soiree." When guests entered the building, they were greeted with a glass of champagne and tunes from a trio of would-be Andrews Sisters. And when it was time for supper, they made their way downstairs to the ballroom, which was decked out in glamorous white linens and ostrich-feather centerpieces. But, what made those nightclubs -- like the Coconut Grove, Copacabana and Latin Quarter -- the "in" places in their day was the chi-chi crowd who went there.

W hat turns the B&O Railroad Museum's roundhouse into a barn? A whole lot of rain. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation planned for its annual Spring Swing party to be inside a Glyndon barn. But spring showers turned the barn's grounds into a muddy mess. The shindig's locale changed, but the evening's theme - "barn chic" - went on as planned. Several hundred guests milled around the old locomotives in their best farmhand bib-and-tucker, including all of the evening's co-chairs: Courtney and William Toomey , Amy and Mark Lavelle , Jamie and Charles Seymour , and Suzanne and Stuart Amos .

Lung transplants - a treatment of last resort for cystic fibrosis - are rarely beneficial to children with that condition and are often harmful, according to a study released last week. Among 248 children who received a lung transplant over an 11-year period, only one clearly benefited while 167 were at a higher risk of dying after the procedure, Utah researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Julian Allen of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia called the findings "startling" in an editorial in the journal.
