We eagerly look forward to this September's Star-Spangled Spectacular commemorating the end of the War of 1812 ( "More details announced for Star-Spangled Spectacular celebration," Aug. 12). If it is only half as good as the 2012 Star-Spangled Sailabration it will be memorable - though one wishes Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake would not oversell it with the promise of "a patriotic festival like this country has never seen. " In fairness, she may be too young to remember the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976.

Last week at baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge we had a guest Top 10 Tuesday by a local bartender who goes by Baltimoron. Here's his list of food and drink (excluding wine) pairings: 1 Zen Press with a summer dinner salad. A Zen Press is muddled seedless cucumber with lemongrass, Hendrick's gin and either soda water or Sprite, garnished with fresh mint. It goes great with any dinner salad. 2 Mojito with Southwestern/Mexican food. What could be better on a hot day than flautas and a mojito?

Pizza, life's cheesy cure-all, makes a strong case as the ideal bar food because it's easy to share and rarely fails to please a crowd. The fact it goes hand-in-hand with beer helps, of course.  And while Baltimore is not often associated with pizza, the city has plenty of bars that serve high-quality pies and drinks in comfortable tavern settings. Verde, Birroteca, Johnny Rad's, HomeSlyce, Barfly's and Joe Squared have a verve all their own.  So let us highlight one more cozy pub deftly marrying pizza and a thoughtful bar program: Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in Riverside.

It takes a lot of work to nominate a presidential candidate. Victor Modic can attest to that. The co-owner of Ice Art, an ice-carving company in Cedar Grove, N.J., is working long hours to plan nearly 50 sculptures for the Republican National Convention, including the kind with liquor sluicing down an ice luge. "We'll probably do it with a large martini glass," Modic says, "and a spigot in the center." This, in the name of democracy: your convention delegates guzzling booze off a giant ice cube.

The Baltimore City Council postponed action Monday on a bill that would have banned the use of foam cups and containers for carryout food and drinks after several members withdrew their support. Councilman James B. Kraft, the bill's chief sponsor, said he is still hopeful Baltimore can become the first major East Coast city to adopt such a ban. Kraft, who represents Canton, Little Italy and Fells Point, said some council members expressed concern that the city needs to work toward a cultural shift that changes individual behaviors on littering, rather than a government edict.

You have to be in pretty good shape to make it up the myriad stairs leading to the main dining room at the Ellicott Mills Brewing Company. But once there - above the din of the street level bar - you'll be glad you made the effort. The spacious 120-seat area is nicely laid out. That, and the menu, promise the opportunity to enjoy good food and conversation with your companions. This historical building at 8308 Main Street is all brick and stone and hard wood, bespeaking the solid foundations upon which this 19th century mill and railroad town were built.

I see where a growing number of companies are suspending or reducing contributions to their employees' 401(k)s and, of course, that makes millions of Americans worried about whether they'll have enough dollars in their retirement funds to allow them to retire instead of ending up 72 years old and punching up lottery tickets from behind the counter at the Royal Farms store. Several educated and intelligent people tell me they are no longer reading the newspapers or watching the networks because they can't stand the constant drumbeat of bleak economic news like this.
