It started Monday afternoon when a customer saw a mouse scurry down an aisle at the Whole Foods Market in Mount Washington. The customer called the Baltimore health department, and by 5 p.m. that evening the store was shut down. A sign on the door read: "We apologize that the store is unexpectedly closed. We are hoping to open as soon as possible." By 10:30 yesterday morning, the store had reopened, but not before the grocer known for its wholesome and natural image had marshaled employees to spend the night on an all-out assault to rid the grocery of a rodent problem and turned away dozens of customers.

Whole Foods Market, the latest retailer to offer government shutdown specials, has invited shoppers in on Sunday for a free spaghetti dinner. "With no end in sight to the government shutdown, wanted to pass along what Whole Foods Market is planning to do to help in the community," Katie Malloy, a spokeswoman for the grocer, said in an email. "Because federal workers are not just customers -- they're neighbors, partners, family and friends. " Malloy says Whole Foods is offering more free samples, Wi-Fi and seating to encourage consumers, furloughed or not, to gather at the stores.

Fields of flavorful strawberries Strawberry fields don't really last forever, but strawberry season nearly does. In California, where 83 percent of the country's strawberries are grown, the season extends from January through November, with the peak in April, May and June. And with locally grown strawberries soon in the stores and markets, there will be plenty of berries for smoothies, pies and homemade ice cream, or simply to eat from a bowl. Eight medium strawberries contain 160 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, and only 45 calories.

In the Valentine's Day of your fantasies, you'd spend hours preparing a gourmet dinner for two, enjoying champagne and savoring dessert with the object of your affection. Your reality, however, may be decidedly less romantic. You've worked all week, and the pantry is bare. The thought of whipping up a homemade meal leaves you cold. And, of course, your favorite romantic restaurant has been booked for weeks. Yet Cupid doesn't have to pass you by this Valentine's Day. Thanks to the prepared-food and catering departments of your local grocer, it's easier than ever to dine in, whether you've got a few days, hours or mere minutes to prepare.  Across the Baltimore region, several national supermarket chains and family-owned grocery stores are offering Valentine's Day-themed meals that are ready to eat or require only minimal time in the oven or microwave.

John Paterakis Sr. didn't believe it when Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke told him nearly two decades ago that Harbor East's Marriott Waterfront Hotel would spur revitalization from the Inner Harbor to Canton. The city had picked Paterakis' H&S Properties Development Corp. to build the hotel, launching a parallel career for the baker and developer. Today, Paterakis marvels at the upscale shops, luxurious living spaces and top-flight office space set to line the southeastern Baltimore waterfront - and already booming along it. "You have to give a lot of credit that he was right," said Paterakis, president of H&S Bakery Inc., which grew from a two-man operation that opened in 1943 to a baking empire spanning more than two dozen states.

H&S Properties Development Corp. plans to push its Harbor East development east across Central Avenue with an expanded Whole Foods Market, a possible department store and apartments on two sites, baker-turned-developer John Paterakis Sr. said Friday. The developer will convert the one-story, brown-painted H&S Bakery distribution center into one or two floors of retail space, with apartments above, Paterakis said. H&S Bakery revealed intentions last month to move the center to an East Baltimore office park, freeing up the real estate by the end of 2014, he said.

Developer James W. Rousewas a pioneer at recycling other people's buildings for new uses, including Faneuil Hall in Boston and parts of the South Street Seaport historic district in Manhattan. Now one of the most prominent buildings he constructed from scratch - the former Rouse Co. headquarters in Columbia - is about to get a similar treatment from a successor to Rouse's firm. The Howard Hughes Corp. of Dallas, which succeeded Rouse and General Growth Properties as the master developer of Columbia, has a $20 million plan to convert the former Rouse headquarters on Little Patuxent Parkway from a single-occupant office building to a mixed-use, multitenant development with a 41,000 square-foot Whole Foods Market as the anchor.

The Food Market is the restaurant that everyone wanted. The new Hampden hot spot from Chad Gauss, formerly of the City Cafe, has been open only for five weeks, but it established itself as a favorite in no time flat. As executive chef at City Cafe, Gauss performed the neat trick of satisfying a conservative customer base while raising their expectations. It was a brilliant balancing act, but with a place of his own - his partner is Elan Kotz, a front-of-house veteran of Aldo's in Little Italy - Gauss gets to be Gauss.
