The print on the cocktail napkins at Fells Point's newest hot spot, Bond Street Social, says it all: "Socialize". The bar and restaurant, a warm, earthy, industrial lounge, is dedicated to this simple concept. "It's all about sharing", said General Manager Shane Gerken. "We're committed to that theme: from the aesthetics and design to our menus. " While the food, described as "high-end comfort" is based around the trendy small plates concept, Bond Street's social drinks, with their 80-ounce infusion jars, brings a unique new idea to the table.

BARDSTOWN, Ky. -- As visitors to California's wine country can attest, there's nothing like driving through rolling hills of beautiful greenery, making periodic stops for complimentary sips of the homegrown beverage. Which is what my friends Jeff, Kelly and I were doing - hundreds of miles from the Pacific Coast. No wine snobs we (though, truth be told, we kind of are), our little threesome was traveling the byways of Kentucky and quaffing bourbon - a real man's drink and America's native spirit.

FLORENCE, Ky. -- At opposite ends of Barn 27 at Turfway Park, opposing emotions prevailed.Standing yesterday outside Stall 51, John Tammaro III had fun with the Jim Beam Stakes winner, Concerto. Concerto stuck out his thick tongue, and Tammaro grabbed it and rubbed gently."You watch these kind of horses run all the time for other people," said Tammaro, who grew up in Baltimore and lives in Howard County. "You don't realize how great it is until you have one of your own."On Saturday, Concerto commanded center stage in the Triple Crown drama with a 2 1/2 -length victory in the $600,000 Jim Beam Stakes at this track in northern Kentucky.

Stalker gave Fire Plug a 9 1/2 -length whipping yesterday, but Bob Camac still has plenty of firepower to salvage the weekend.Fire Plug, trained by Camac, finished second in the $43,550 J. Edgar Hoover Handicap at Pimlico Race Course as the 7-10 favorite. Those are right about the odds that Wide Country, another Camac trainee, figures to be in the $200,000 Pimlico Oaks today.The Pimlico surface was a sea of mud yesterday, and Fire Plug "didn't handle it too good," jockey Santos Chavez said.

FLORENCE, Ky. -- Call it a working vacation.John J. Tammaro III, a horse trainer from Cooksville in Howard County, loaded his wife and children into the car and headed west. Speaking on his car phone yesterday on the way to Kentucky, Tammaro said that he was driving to Florence but that his destination was Louisville.If Concerto, the outstanding 3-year-old Tammaro trains for George Steinbrenner, asserts himself today in the $600,000 Jim Beam Stakes here at Turfway Park, he likely will collect a transfer for a trip to Louisville on May 3 and the 123rd Kentucky Derby.

PARENTS have long suspected that it's the evil, subliminal messages in rock lyrics that make teen-agers act the way they do.Receiving these messages is not easy. You have to play the record backwards at least 20 or 30 times before you start feeling weird, and that's assuming you've consumed at least a quart of strawberry wine.I remember, sort of, playing the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour" album backwards many, many times one night to find clues about Paul McCartney's "death." I was absolutely certain that I heard the words "Paul is dead," though my friend, Keith, who was drinking Jim Beam at the time, was of the opinion that the lyrics actually said "Haul out Fred."

MOST fund managers don't dump a favorite stock when the company makes a move to increase revenues and expand brand recognition. So when the Pax World funds announced this week that the firm had reluctantly unloaded 375,000 shares in Starbucks - a longtime darling of investors - it shined a spotlight on investing with an agenda. Social investing - and I do not call it "socially responsible investing" because that implies that all other firms are irresponsible - is the investment art of "doing well while doing good," choosing investments based first on a value system, then on profit potential.

TAKING A PAGE from Art Modell's checkbook, I have decided to name my two children after the highest corporate bidder. OK, they already have names. But so did Ravens stadium, at least sort of. That didn't stop Modell from renaming it PSINet Stadium for a cool $105.5 million.Anyway, my two children do not respond to the names they have, so I plan to make some fast cash on new names to which they could also fail to respond.Everybody is doing it. Everyone with a stadium, that is. Team owners are getting millions.

Four snifters of pricey, artfully made bourbon sat in front of me. Then there were three, then two, then one, then none.This was a small-batch bourbon tasting, an example of America's increasing interest in bourbons that taste better and cost more than ordinary whiskeys. This was news. The ballroom in Washington's Grand Hyatt hotel was full of 200 well-dressed guests who, according to a brochure, were there to educate themselves "as to the finer points of bourbon connoisseurship."One table of sippers seemed at the top of the class.

The Kentucky Oaks and Black Eyed Susan Stakes are run the day before the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, respectively. Although those filly races are important events, they are overshadowed so much by the Triple Crown races that they're relegated to small stories in the back of sports sections.Ever wonder why they're run when they're run? And then did you wonder why the Early Times distillery this year began sponsoring the Early Times Turf Triple, a trio of rich turf races run the day before the Triple Crown events at the host tracks?
