The pink flamingo-shaped lights decorating the balcony rail of a mobile home in Florida signal the level of taste on display in “The Great American Trailer Park Musical.” This 2005 off-Broadway musical indulges in lowbrow satire, but the music and lyrics by David Nehls and book by Betsy Kelso are highly skillful in conveying  lowly material. If the production at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre immediately gets into the show’s trashy spirit, it’s surely because four of the cast members (Maribeth Eckenrode, Kristen Zwobot, Karina Ferry and R. Brett Rohrer)

If you saw a disheveled, clearly despondent 66-year-old man hitchhiking, would you pick him up? Would you pick him up if you realized he was John Waters? Two springs ago, Baltimore's most unrepentant degenerate set out on a mission of discovery. Beginning on Charles Street, not far from his home, Waters would hitchhike all the way to his San Francisco condo, following Interstate 70 most of way. There would be little in the way of advance planning; he'd be relying totally on his thumb and the kindness of strangers.

One too many margaritas isn't hard to manage during Cinco de Mayo. So a number of organizations have teamed up to make sure no one in Baltimore gets behind the wheel with tequila breath that would break a breathalyzer. AAA Mid-Atlantic, the Maryland Department of Transportation and Yellow Cab created "Tipsy? Taxi!" to offer drunken revelers a way to get home without driving. From 4 p.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday, anyone that calls a certain number to order a cab gets the ride free.

Will Smith finally got a chance to strut his romantic-comedy stuff this year in Hitch (Sony, $29). Smith plays a New York date doctor who guarantees men they can win the girl of their dreams in just three dates. More than holding his own opposite Smith is stand-up comic Kevin James (The King of Queens), who plays a shy accountant madly in love with a society heiress (Amber Valletta). Eva Mendes plays a tabloid columnist who ends up falling for Hitch. Conspicuously absent is audio commentary from director Andy Tennant, Smith and James -- it would have greatly improved the digital edition.

Apparently it's not a nice day for a white wedding. The Baltimore Humane Society was hoping Chico and TeTe - an adoptable dog and cat - and Aladdin and Jasmine - two adoptable guinea pigs - would be "married" Friday for its annual Valentine's Day promotion. But the winter weather has caused the organizers to get cold feet and postpone the festivities until Monday. The ceremony - complete with flowers, wedding cakes and guinea pig bridal outfits - will now go on at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Baltimore Humane Society, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown.

I believe the timing is right. Critical decisions should be made to keep our Olympic athletes and coaches at home. The environment is simply too volatile to send our athletes and coaches to Sochi. Russian President Vladimir Putin is bound and determined to pull off the Sochi Olympics, no matter what. But when factions boldly state they will target fans who come to Sochi, the situation becomes so much more complex and convoluted. I ask the U.S. Olympic Committee and Congress to keep our athletes stateside.

The sandwich's simple format offers unlimited options for culinary creativity. At Woody's Hitching Post - deep in Monkton's pastoral horse country - chef-owner David "Woody" Woodruff is busy exploring those options - to the great benefit of his customers. Woodruff opened his eponymous shop last summer, leaving behind a career in commercial real estate (he had restaurant experience from his younger days). It's a simple spot - bare-bones decor, handwritten signs advertising the menu, a handful of tables and an open, diner-style kitchen - but that keeps the focus on the food and on Woodruff's friendly personality.

Skeletons, butterflies, frogs and even baby chickens bounced around the festive food court at the Mall in Columbia on Tuesday, as officials urged residents to celebrate Halloween despite Sandy's after-effects, and parents enthusiastically tried to comply. "It may be a little soggy and a little muddy," said Raquel Guillory, spokeswoman for Gov. Martin O'Malley. "But as long as there are no downed wires or trees in the way, we do hope the kids get out and do a little trick-or-treating.

Michael Owen has spent a lot of time around love - even as he began to lose his faith in it. As the artist behind the Baltimore Love Project, Owen has painted the image of hands forming the word "love" on 11 walls scattered throughout the city. In June 2010, when he and his wife, Shelley, separated (their formal divorce is pending), he almost quit the project. How could he keep painting this word when he barely believed in it? Instead, Owen, 29, threw himself at his work, finishing more murals than ever.
