If you're going to see and hear David Sedaris read at the Meyerhoff on Sunday, keep this in mind: He'll most likely be watching you, too. "He goes on these tours and will read stories that he's working on, and I think there is a kind of feedback that he gets from the audience," says Geoff Kloske, who published Sedaris' first books for Little, Brown. His longtime agent Steve Barclay agrees that the tour is part of Sedaris' creative process. Sedaris is the best-selling author of six books, including Me Talk Pretty One Day and, most recently, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim.

What a relief "Looking" is getting another season. Because while "Looking Glass" satisfyingly hints at where Patrick, Dom and Agustin's lives might be going, nothing feels totally finished. Every episode of "Looking" has followed much the same pattern, with forward-leaning final scenes pushing viewers toward what's next. What an apt way to close out the season, especially given how often characters in "Looking" keep scanning for the future as well. What an apt episode name too, with its clear allusion to "Alice in Wonderland.

The headline on the news release out of Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation yesterday sounded pretty great: "Private Sector Gains 18,700 Jobs Over-the-Year. " Read the body of the release, though, and you'll discover the actual news was not so great. In July, it says, Maryland actually lost 9,000 jobs, one of the worst performances in the nation and a distinct outlier in a month when 36 states and Washington, D.C., gained jobs. Not that the agency was dwelling on that.

New advances in wine technology are great news for people who thrive on variety and experimentation. With more Baltimore-area restaurants adopting an array of advanced wine-dispensing systems - from kegs to devices that allow wine to be poured without removing the cork - it's easier than ever to imbibe without committing to a single bottle. These new systems have a cool factor that makes wine geeks go nuts. But the technology is for more than just show. Implementing these systems translates into more options for customers, cost savings for restaurant owners and environmental benefits for everyone.

Editor: Maryland's Primary Election is coming soon, June 24. I support the re-election of Delegate Glen Glass to the Maryland House of Delegates. During the past four years, he has served and represented his constituents of Harford and Cecil counties during a very profound and difficult time in our state's history. As a State Delegate, he has had great admiration for his district and constituents! This dedication to serving his constituents has enabled him to sponsor more bills than any other delegate in the Harford County Delegation.

Remington, as neighborhoods go, is hot. The neighborhood is conveniently close to the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University . Charles Village is just to the east - Howard Street is the dividing line - and Hampden is just across the way. There have always been popular spots here, places like The Dizz and Ottobar , but now there are more. Part of a former garage on Howard Street has been converted into an avant-garde theater. The other part is now a butcher shop and restaurant from the owners of Woodberry Kitchen . There's another new restaurant worth knowing about - Sweet 27. OK, it's not exactly a new restaurant.

Love the pattern. Love the colors. Really love the guy. With a personality as pitchable as his product line, Michael Weems, a gregarious stemware designer from Baltimore, is a branding strategist's dream. Despite no formal artistic training, Weems, 38, has transformed himself in little more than 10 years from a downsized financial manager to a rising star in an industry ruled by a "you are what you sell" philosophy. Today, Weems' collection of festive crystal and glassware, blown in Europe and etched here in a pattern inspired by 16th century Italian tapestry, can be found in Neiman Marcus, Geary's of Beverly Hills and hundreds of other retailers.

A new eyeglass assembly lab in Halethorpe is poised to make prescription lenses for Google Glass after the wearable-computer product launches later this year. The VSPOne facility, which opened last month, expects substantial growth from more conventional sources - customers throughout the Northeast ordering regular eyeglasses. But the lab also has the technology needed to process orders for prescription Glass and expects to do so, said David Carr, a company spokesman. When, exactly, is up in the air. Glass - an Internet-connected display screen mounted on an eyeglass frame - is a prototype available only to beta testers for now. But Google expects to launch it sometime this year.
