That's right, a soccer golf course.Soccer golf is basically the same as regular golf, minus the clubs and the small, dimpled balls. Instead, legs and feet are used along with soccer balls. The course will feature par-3 to par-5 holes.

A lot can happen in the first three years of a restaurant's life. Things can go haywire. Investors panic, managers quit and staff moves on. But sometimes, not often enough, wisdom prevails. The restaurant considers what works, what doesn't. It reacts, but doesn't overreact, to diners' responses, and it changes things, thoughtfully, gradually, confidently. If you believe in the capacity for change, head down to Wit & Wisdom, the principal restaurant at the Four Seasons Baltimore Hotel.

Zach Wendal, Andrew Benicewicz and Scott Bissett ventured into the unknown as freshmen, trying out for a Mount Hebron wrestling team that had won one match in the previous four seasons. And they didn't exactly take to the sport like ducks to water. "I had never tried wrestling, had no idea what it was," Bissett said. "I remember I couldn't even do a half-nelson. For about a month or two months, I was like, `How do you do this?' " Wendal didn't fare much better: "I wasn't good at sprawling or shooting takedowns.

In a way, you have.New York's Four Seasons Hotel, located on one of midtown Manhattan's most fashionable shopping streets, built at a cost of $360 million, is gaining a certain landmark status as the latest example of a disappearing breed of grand hotels. "I've been told that something like this happens in New York every 50 years, and I tend to believe it," says hotel manager Thomas Gurtner.

The already expensive Baltimore housing market is about to get even pricier. Developers recently broke ground on a Ritz-Carlton in Federal Hill in what is slated as a 5.6-acre, $155 million luxury condominium project. And with crews set to begin construction this spring on a $180 million Four Seasons hotel and condominium complex across from the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, the city's unprecedented era of luxury condominium development is in full swing. Real estate experts said these types of million-dollar luxury residences are in demand thanks to an influx of baby boomers who are selling their homes in the suburbs and looking to retire in style.

Pabu is shutting down this weekend, but a new Japanese restaurant will be taking its place, according to operators. The small-plate format will be gone, replaced by a more traditional fine-dining concept. "Our number one priority is taking care of our locals," said Alex Smith, whose Atlas Restaurant Group is taking over the spaces currently operating as Pabu and Lamill in The Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. "[Pabu] never did a great job of attracting the local crowd," he said. Smith, who owns Ouzo Bay, an upscale Greek restaurant in Harbor East, said that several Ouzo Bay customers who had seen news coverage of the Pabu closing told him they had never heard of Pabu.

The developer of Harbor East has dipped its toes back into Baltimore's tenuous condominium market, presenting the city with new plans for long-stalled luxury residences atop the Four Seasons Hotel. The design calls for 63 condominiums instead of the roughly 150 initially envisioned in a project that the developer said still could be scrapped. The uncertainty highlights Baltimore's tentative condo market. While sales numbers and prices suggest that the market is rebounding, condos remain an uncommon, often premium product in Baltimore, and many developers remain unconvinced that there is sufficient demand.

The comments from Rich Shannahan that you ran on November 16, "Excluding Bay Foundation is outrageous" were outrageously inaccurate. K. Hovnanian Homes played no role whatsoever in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation being excluded as a sponsor of the Bay Run by race organizers. We learned about the issue when it was reported in The Sun. K. Hovnanian would never object to any organization participating in a fundraising event that supports the bay, even if it opposes our Four Seasons community.
