I'm a sucker for cocktail names. The more obscure, random or puzzling, the better. Like "Bramble. " I've noticed it on several drink menus across Baltimore this summer and finally found one worth ordering — the Bramble On at the Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington. It turns out the Bramble has a pretty storied history. One might even call it a modern classic. "The Bramble was — and still is — a cocktail that was popular in England in the 1980s. Basically, it's a gin sour with blackberry liqueur.

Gin Talking closed in on her rivals while under a hammerlock, found room along the rail turning for home and burst through to win the $100,000 Grade III Anne Arundel Stakes yesterday at Laurel Park. Jockey Ramon Dominguez and Gin Talking beat 10 other 3-year-old fillies in 1 minute, 50 1/5 seconds for the nine furlongs. "At the top of the lane the rail opened up, and she just accelerated by the leader," Dominguez said. "She drew off on her own courage. Robin [Graham, the trainer] has done such a magnificent job with this horse.

Toward the end of a blistering set on a recent Friday night, Adam Marans, lead singer of the Baltimore sludgy punk foursome Big Christ, took a rare breather to dedicate the next song, “Boogie Nights,” to the deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. A collective smile hit the room of roughly 25. And then came the boom, a glorious cacophony of Marans' full-throated yells, relentless cymbal crashing, staccato palm muting on guitar and the bass' punishing low end. The 25-minute performance was loud, brutal and a lot of fun. It was also just a regular Friday night at the Gold Bar, another smart and solid addition to an emerging Station North bar scene that already includes the Windup Space, Beatnik, Club K and next-door neighbor The Crown.

My mother read somewhere that vodka-soaked white raisins might be good for arthritis. She is now eating nine a day. Mom has taken quite a bit of ribbing from the family. What is the benefit from this formula? Can you provide any written details about how to prepare them and how often she should eat them, how they should be stored, etc.? We first heard about a gin-raisin remedy in 1994. Some folks tell us it is worthless, while others sing its praises. Here is just one example: "This remedy has worked for me for over two years.

Gin Talking, the reigning Maryland-bred Horse of the Year, was retired yesterday because of tendon damage in her left foreleg. Robin Graham, her trainer at Laurel Park, said an ultrasound scan revealed the damage after she noticed "different" swelling in a troublesome tendon. "The vet said this was something that might be OK," said Lou Rehak, who owns the filly with Willie White and Bob Orndorff as Skeedattle Associates. "But we just decided to retire her. She's been way too good to us to take a chance of hurting her."

ELMONT, N.Y. -- Nick Zito has so much admiration for the way Go For Gin has endured the grueling Triple Crown series this spring that the trainer referred to his horse yesterday as "a New York knight in shining armor."The 3-year-old colt drew the rail and was made the 9-5 favorite yesterday when a seven-horse field was entered for the 126th running of the Belmont Stakes, being run tomorrow at Belmont Park.In addition to Go For Gin, the Belmont lineup includes Preakness winner Tabasco Cat; a pair of colts, Strodes Creek and Brocco, who finished second and fourth, respectively, in the Kentucky Derby, but skipped the Preakness; and three long shots, Amathos, Signal Tap and Ulises, a speed horse.

At age 51 I feel like I am too young to have arthritis, but I definitely have some joint pain. When I type at the computer my thumb and little fingers hurt. When I play too much tennis my knees ache. My stomach is way too sensitive to take aspirin, ibuprofen or other arthritis pills. I'd like to try the raisins soaked in gin that I've read about in your column. How well do they work? Gin-soaked raisins have not been tested scientifically, but some people report success. The recipe is simple: Pour gin over golden raisins just until the raisins are submerged.

Nothing says New Year's Eve quite like some bubbly. But for your New Year's party, do you really want to offer just another glass of champagne (we're sorry, sparkling wine ) on a night that is ushering in the exciting and new? Well now you don't have to. We asked five area bartenders to create an original cocktail that you can re-create at your own holiday party. Each of these cocktails is made with a $20-or-less bottle of "champagne," so they won't break your party budget. The Island Bubbilini Jeff Levy, Tavern on the Hill Levy loves to add gin to cocktails because he finds the ingredient so versatile, but he knows sometimes gin scares people.

I'm on a mission to revel in as much of autumn's bounty as I can. Yes, I said "autumn's bounty. " Can you blame me? It took this season long enough to get here. So in celebration, I (my taste buds, really) am devouring apples and spice and any and everything associated with the crisp, tart fall goodness one can find at Baltimore area farmers' markets. That especially means cider. I could bathe in cider … but I'll spare you that tale. I also like to bake with it, marinade things in it, and I especially enjoy imbibing a few dozen cocktails mixed with the alcoholic variety.

Bowling alleys aren't the first place one thinks to go for culinary craftsmanship. Don't get me wrong - they serve a wonderful, storied purpose to Americana. Where else can you have that much fun drinking cheap beer, downing dried-out hot dogs and wearing funny, smelly "clown shoes"? I mean, nowhere. But America's favorite participation sport isn't exactly a cultured experience. Unless, that is, you happen up an elevator and into the magical 12-lane boutique bowling land of Mustang Alley's in Little Italy.

In its aim and ambition, Moonshine Tavern is nothing like the Gin Mill, the cozy Canton bar and restaurant it replaced after nearly 16 years of service. Like many of the nearby bars on Boston Street, the Gin Mill was more of a casual place for dinner and drinks than a hot spot. I talked to Moonshine Tavern co-owner Shanna Cooper in January, and it was clear that she and partner Jacob Millisock hoped to make Gin Mill a distant memory. "We're not looking to be a hole-in-the-wall bar," Cooper said.

The phenomenon of the mass craze -- "an insane or irrational fancy, a mania," according to the OED -- often combines the unknown or near-unknown with what, in retrospect, seems like inevitability. Who could have predicted, say, the Hula Hoop? The Pet Rock? On the very dark side, lynchings have blighted U.S. history. A provocative foray into the phenomenon is Craze: Gin and Debauchery in an Age of Reason, by Jessica Warner (Four Walls Eight Windows, 264 pages, $24.95). This gin craze occurred in London, between 1720 and 1751.
