Heidi Klotzman knows how to throw a party. When Klotzman was 17, she organized an outdoor fundraiser for VH1's Save the Music Foundation at her home in Phoenix in Baltimore County, complete with multiple bands and a professional stage, lighting and sound setup. About 250 high schoolers showed up for the event, which raised enough money to open a Baltimore chapter for the charity, which benefits music programs in public schools. Now 29, Klotzman has become one of Baltimore's most influential event promoters.

On the street, he's Baltimore Police Officer Timothy Hall. On stage, he's the "Comic Cop." His main job is locking up criminals by serving warrants around the city. His other job is that of a comedian, poking fun at the crooks he's busted and the civilians he's encountered. On the street, he has to be deferential and professional; on stage he can let loose and say things he couldn't get away with wearing a badge and a gun. Hall jokes about how hard it is to be a cop in Baltimore because "nobody fears the police anymore."

THE AMAZING Ray Charles was everything the Maryland School for the Blind hoped for and more. From the moment he sang "Georgia on My Mind" to the spectacular "What I Say" to end the show, he had all the folks at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on their feet begging for more.Charles was the star attraction at the school's fund-raiser concert, which raised more than $102,000. Among those in the audience were Mayor Kurt Schmoke and former O's pitcher Tippy Martinez. Mary Beth Marsden of WMAR-TV was the evening's emcee and local performer Deanna Bogart was the opening act.I'm told that the concert was the first in what will be an annual series to raise money for the school, a private, nonprofit institution that has served Maryland children for 144 years.

Rush Limbaugh will stash his cigars there. And so might Demi Moore. A few of the Baltimore Ravens also plan to store Montecristos and Don Titos in temperature-controlled humidors at Baltimore's new Havana Club.But don't be fooled by the name or the Spanish cedar cigar storage bins that rent for $300 or the antique cigar labels framed on the walls. Owner Steve F. de Castro says his 200-seat club, opening Thursday above Ruth's Chris Steak House on Water Street, is about more than puffing on stogies.

Mariah Walton owns a trendy Philadelphia clothing boutique, West London. And this 29-year-old Philadelphian knows how best to show off the merchandise — by wearing it herself. We "glimpsed" Walton at the Havana Club, where she was a guest at the annual fundraiser for Holding the Line Foundation, founded by NFL free agent Jason Murphy to help underprivileged youth in sports mentorship programs. Walton looked oh-so-chic in a dress of her own design. It had a turquoise, yellow and black crochet bodice, with a black lace back and a black cotton bubble skirt embroidered with flowers.

Now that winter's (finally) here, having a cigar on the deck out back sounds a lot less relaxing. You bundle up like an Eskimo, totter outdoors, dig through your jacket for the smoke, try to light the matches with gloves on, drop them and curse the cold. By the time the darn thing's lit, you're shivering and asking yourself if it was worth all that. It's not. If you can't light up indoors but still crave a stogie, try one of these cigar bars downtown. The first spot, Max's on Broadway (737 S. Broadway, 410-675-6297)

On Feb. 1, Ryleigh's Oyster is throwing a cigar social that at first seems in blatant violation of the Maryland  indoor smoking ban.  The promotional ad features a slender stogie atop a glass of whiskey and promises giveaways of hand-rolled cigars from Cross Street Tobacco. But don't expect to smoke inside the Federal Hill bar , says owner Brian McComas. The event is just that - promotion for the cigar shop and for Jameson whiskey. It's part of the bar's spirits tasting series.
