Investors who have an appetite for some cheap stocks with good growth potential may want to order up some food or beverage stocks for their portfolios. To be sure, many of these companies' shares haven't fared well over the past 12 months: Food manufacturer stocks are off 6 percent, and beverage makers are up just 1 percent for the year. The alcoholic-drink companies have done better with a 7 percent appreciation on average, but none of these industries has performed as well as the S&P 500 index, which has risen nearly 16 percent over the same period.

It's 9:30 p.m. on a Friday, and Jerry Coffey's night is just getting started. With karaoke music blaring in the background, he glides around the bar, talking with customers, cracking jokes and pouring beers. "When you're behind the bar, you are on stage," said Coffey, clad in black jeans with a bottle-opener poking out of his back pocket. But with his gray mustache and wavy hair that is more salt than pepper, mixing drinks and tapping kegs is a far cry from the 9-to-5 work this 51-year-old once knew.

Last May, four days before the Preakness, Baltimore health inspectors cited Pimlico Race Course for rat, mouse and roach infestations in its kitchens and food stands. So the city health commissioner, Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, went to Pimlico 48 hours before the nationally televised race, carrying the threat of shutting down some of the food operations. Sharfstein found neither filth nor rodents. The sudden turnaround at Pimlico was nearly as remarkable as Street Sense's recent come-from-behind Kentucky Derby victory.

In 2004, more Americans will be spending time in the kitchen and - surprise, surprise - reacquainting themselves with an old friend: the dining-room table. "People are rediscovering their kitchens. They are learning it's just as easy to make a white sauce out of butter, flour and milk as it is to open a can of condensed mushroom soup," says Candy Wallace, founder and executive director of the American Personal Chef Institute & Association in San Diego.

Shares of Spherix Inc. gained as much as 12 percent yesterday after the company said Kellogg Co. had been issued a patent enabling it to include Spherix's low-calorie sugar substitute in foods such as ready-to-eat cereal. The nation's No. 1 cereal maker wouldn't say yesterday whether it had specific plans to add tagatose to its products, nor would Kellogg say whether it had ordered significant amounts of the sweetener. And Spherix Chief Executive Officer Gilbert V. Levin cautioned that the patent doesn't guarantee that Kellogg will be adding tagatose to anything.

There'll be plenty of hot dogs and hamburgers at the Ravens' stadium when it opens this summer. But there may be a few surprises, as well, such as dolphin-fish sandwiches for games against Miami, or buffalo-meat hamburgers when the Bills come to play.Fine Host Corp., the Ravens' concessionaire, received its liquor license from the city yesterday, and in the process revealed plans for what fans can expect at the $220 million stadium.Among the ideas under development: a tailgating area with tents alongside the stadium for corporate sponsors to lease on game days; a faster system of all-purpose cashiers who both serve food and take money; and regional cuisine, including crabcakes, pit beef, cheesesteak sandwiches and locally brewed beers.

OCEAN CITY - Weeks of cool weather and a wobbly economy dampened summer sales for most Ocean City businesses, leaving some owners and managers praying for a good fall to help make up for a less-than-sensational season. "It's been very, very, very slow," said Ray Flair, Manager at Mikes Bikes, which has two locations near the Boardwalk in Ocean City. "If we could get a good September and October, we might break real close to coming up to last year." Revenue at the bike rental's 1st Street location, which gets most of its business from the local hotels, is off about 2 percent despite a $1-an-hour rate increase, the first in nine years, he said.
