There may never be another three operatic tenors packing the combined vocal and star power of Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, but there are at least three highly marketable singers who have demonstrated an exceptional ability to stir the public. Call them the poperatic tenors. Heading the list of these mass-appeal vocalists, who cross back and forth between classical and pop idioms easily and who generate unusually effusive fans, is Andrea Bocelli. The blind Italian singer soared to fame and fortune in the 1990s, given an extra boost by heavy exposure on American public television.

With a loaded title and a heavy foot in ancient Greek mythology, Bob Bartlett's new play "Bareback Ink" offers an intriguing take on sexual attraction and coercion, genuine and forced relationships, alienation and fear. Iron Crow Theatre Company has given the work a tense, thoughtful staging at JHU's tucked-away Swirnow Theatre, directed by Ryan Clark and designed by Heather Mork. It may not persuade you that Bartlett has penned a masterpiece, but the combination of solid acting and production values (most notably the atmospheric contributions from lighting designer Alec Lawson and sound designer Jessye Black)

When two distinct ethnic food influences collide to create a hybrid dish, chefs call it fusion cuisine. The fusion doesn't necessarily mean it's lean, but it does provide a nice jumping-off point for creative cooks. Take something familiar, and turn it into something new by making a few healthy substitutions. These Greek Tacos take the standard Mexican-style taco - a hard or soft shell stuffed with ground meat and layered with lettuce, tomato and cheese - and give it a spin using a whole-wheat pita.

This recipe is the result of not being able to shake a culinary flashback based on a decades-ago dinner in a tiny restaurant on the Greek island of Naxos. Because my taste buds are much sharper than my memory, it took several attempts to come up with this recipe. I like to keep packages of shrimp and squid on hand in the freezer. Small amounts of seafood defrost quickly under cold running water. Beverage pairing A crisp, dry Greek sauvignon blanc will match well. Tips Use only one type of seafood if you like.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. Since coming over to the United States almost a year ago from his native Greece, Georgios Papagiannis has been, for the most part, a 7-foot-1 international man of mystery. Playing alongside Maryland signee Jared Nickens, Papagiannis starred in high school at Westtown (Pa.) outside the Philadelphia suburbs. Together, the two of them led Westtown to its second Friends School League title in school history.

Every time we turn around, Hampden has a new restaurant. The newest addition to the neighborhood's lineup is Souvlaki, a teeny tiny Greek spot that opened on the Avenue in mid-December. Owned by Dmitri and Elli Taramas (natives of Greece by way of New York), Souvlaki's great food and welcoming vibe give Baltimoreans from all over the city one more reason to head to Hampden. Scene & Decor Just before 7 o'clock on a chilly Thursday night, most of Souvlaki's tables were filled and the phone rang, repeatedly, with carryout orders.

This quirky island, snug in the wine-dark northern Aegean Sea, came alive with tantalizing tales my grandmother spun when I was young. The narratives, some real, others not so much, were a balm. On school nights, they kept me up past my bedtime. Colorful characterizations of pirates and poverty; of mineral springs said to heal arthritis; and tales about Costa, a goat who wreaked havoc in her native village. Ikaria, I learned then, was also the birthplace of a humble dish called soufiko - a cocktail of fresh veggies crafted by cooks expert in the art of farm-to-table dining.

The reassuring smell of a greasy grill hard at work emanated from the Ashland Cafe in Cockeysville as I pulled into the beat-up parking lot. It was a smell that triggered countless memories of good, cheap Greek diner food. And despite the chichi name, the Ashland Cafe is essentially a good, cheap Greek diner, although one open only for breakfast and lunch. The low-slung, beige brick building sits amid antiques stores and muffler shops at the corner of York and Cockeysville roads within easy reach of Interstate 83. Parking at the side and rear isn't grand, but it's adequate.

Wedded to the mantra that money is better spent on experiences than on the latest roll-out from Apple, we visited Ikaria, the deliciously isolated and funky island in the Aegean Sea. It so happened that all four of my grandparents were born on this hardscrabble terrain between 1890 and 1895, before landing at Ellis Island. From the time I was small, for my amusement and enjoyment, they indulged my fantasies about this dusty gem, a 35-minute flight from the capital city of Athens, but within sight of the coast of Turkey.

Ilias "Louis" Sabracos, a fixture in Baltimore's Greek community who owned several successful businesses, including a barbershop and diner, died Wednesday at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center after suffering a stroke. He was 81. Born in Tripolis, Greece, Mr. Sabracos was one of four children born to a funeral director and a homemaker. When his father was killed during World War II, he went to work at 10, sweeping up hair in a barbershop to help support his family. He later joined the Greek army, and after his military service was completed, he went to work as a barber.
