There are many things to which the tradition-conscious Baltimorean looks forward each spring and summer in the Queen City of the Patapsco Drainage Basin -- the return of the Orioles to Camden Yards, the blossoming of the Flower Mart in Mount Vernon, the start of another round of ethnic festivals, the return of Sunday car polishing in Druid Hill Park and the appearance of Rosie Apicella on the boccie courts in Little Italy.Of course, it's not enough for the effervescent Rosie to merely appear there and to smile, hug and kiss old friends.

I had one of those soul-satisfying, I-love-Baltimore nights a few Saturdays back at Cafe Gia Ristorante, a colorful, cheerful and satisfying Italian restaurant on the corner of High Street and Eastern Avenue. We showed up for early dinner reservations and were whisked right upstairs to the narrow second-floor balcony, which was pretty darn magical on this particular night. The view from there isn't spectacular, but it's captivating, a mix of old and new. Across the street, you can see diners on the balcony at Dalesio's, and further back, the high- and medium-rise luxury apartment buildings of the Harbor East development.

Before owner Gia Blattermann-Fugate opened her eponymous Little Italy restaurant two years ago, she brought in artist Yuri Victorov, who gave the space its signature cheery wall colors and bright murals. Outside the restaurant, Victorov re-created the Sicilian wedding of Gia's grandparents. He also painted each door a different color, to create the impression that the small building was actually a cluster of different bistros and restaurants. -- Poor:]

It's still wintertime in New Jersey and the Garden State ladies can't wait to escape to Florida. But first, drama must happen before they go to paradise. As always, Teresa G. is staying strong for her girls during this difficult time and wants to keep life as normal as possible. In the car on the way to school, older daughter Gia tells Teresa G. how proud she is of her, and how she is staying strong for the family. So many feelings! After Gia is dropped off, Teresa G. tells younger daughter Audriana, who is also in the car, about how Gia is a great big sister and how mommy and daddy are going through some difficult times.

This corner of Little Italy has a soft Mediterranean feel with the murmur of Italian drifting over the click of boccie balls in the fading twilight. We could be in a village square anywhere from Sicily to Tirolo. But we're on the boccie courts on Stiles Street, just half a block from St. Leo's church. Rose Castagnoli Apicella, a prima donna di boccie in a pink-striped T-shirt, pink shorts and very sensible shoes, plants her feet solidly on the boccie court, squats slightly, then steps forward to release her ball as softly as if she were rolling an egg. The red ball moves at a slow stately pace to turn slightly at the end and snuggle up against the pallino, the small metal target ball.

One of the most interesting Baltimore restaurant stories lately (that doesn't involve a closing) has been the goings-on at the Inn at the Colonnade and its restaurant, Alizee (4 W. University Parkway, 443-449-6200). Alizee got off to a bit of a rocky start, and in April the chef and then the owners decamped. The official word is that they have moved on to other projects. The restaurant was taken over by Richard Naing, owner of the hotel. With the arrival of Christian deLutis as executive chef last month, the place may finally have gotten its act together.

The Season 6 "RHONJ" premiere was filled with new housewives, the return of an original housewife and a whole lot of emotions; this is your warning that you might need some tissues. Teresa Giudice:  You might actually have heard of the name Giudice outside of the Bravo bubble because Teresa and her husband Joe are indicted on federal fraud charges and could face a long time in prison: real housewives have real drama. The episode started with her sister-in-law Melissa calling Teresa to check to see if some rumors are true, Teresa says they aren't true, and after she hangs up, her daughter Gia asks what she was talking about on the phone.

The Algerian army's onslaught against guerrillas in recent days will accomplish good if it is accompanied by negotiations with opposition parties leading to a transfer of authority. The regime of President Liamine Zeroual has the power to unify the opposition or drive a wedge between its moderate and fanatic wings. Too often, it has done the former.The military regime in Algeria is wrong to claim through semi-official newspapers that it has virtually eliminated the Armed Islamic Group (GIA)
