WASHINGTON -- Johnny Rockets, the chain of '50s-themed diners, is ready to blast off, with its new owner vowing to add nearly four times as many locations by 2012. Smaller versions of the burger-and-fries restaurants will start touching down in airports, shopping malls and other heavily trafficked spots as part of an aggressive expansion by Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder, whose private equity firm, RedZone Capital, acquired the chain yesterday. "There's no reason we shouldn't see 1,000 Johnny Rockets locations within the next five years," Snyder said.

Tomorrow is Opening Day, in case anybody in Baltimor doesn't know it. And the new Camden Yards stadium is only a few minutes' walk from the Inner Harbor, where there are plenty of places to park. So I decided to take a look at some of the quick-hit food places in Harborplace's Light Street Pavilion. You might want to have a sit-down meal on your way to the ballgame, but you're more likely to grab something and keep moving. (Unless, of course, you're going to settle for an overpriced hot dog at the ballpark, in which case you might as well quit reading.

Frazier's Restaurant and Taproom,Frazier's Restaurant and Taproom, 857 W. 33rd St., (410) 889-1143. This longtime Hampden "restaurant and taproom," tucked into the basement of a corner rowhouse, is a good place for a burger and a beer or for a nicely prepared homey sort of meal. With 10 tables, a bar, a couple of video games and a compact-disc juke box, Frazier's is for those who like it cozy. Claustrophobics should go elsewhere. The regular menu offers pizza, pasta, side dishes and sandwiches, as well as a dozen full-course meals and economical daily specials.

Wondering where you can find Harry Potter's Hogwarts Castle made out of 600,000 matchsticks, or a Mini Cooper car covered with one million Swarovski crystals, or a one ton U.S. Lincoln penny made from 10,000 copper pennies? Where else but the new "odditorium" attraction at Baltimore's Harborplace. Ripley's Believe It or Not, one of the first of several new tenants opening for the summer tourist season at the Light Street Pavilion, is welcoming the public for a "soft" opening starting Saturday.

Maybe it was all those fishy lunches I ate as a kid, but on summer afternoons I have a yen for a tuna-salad sandwich. I know there are upscale versions of this sandwich out there that mix chunks of high-quality tuna with walnuts and grapes, or with fennel, tarragon and capers. But on this go-round I kept it simple: canned tuna salad on rye with lettuce and tomato, served at downtown eateries. During a sunny noon hour when tourists were meandering through Harborplace, office workers were dodging Redwood Street construction crews, and the lunchtime throngs filled Lexington Market, I went fishing for tuna-salad sandwiches.

Considering all the anxiety about crime and violence around the Inner Harbor this summer - and the calls for city police to patrol the area more closely - conflicts over individual civil liberties versus more aggressive policing were bound to arise. But even under those circumstances, the arrest of Anthony Fein, a Ravens player who was charged Sunday with assaulting a city officer, is an unfortunate result for all involved. Certain key facts in the incident remain in dispute, but this much is clear: Police were summoned to the Johnny Rockets restaurant in the Light Street pavilion after receiving a report of a group of men passing around a large, silvery object that security personnel thought might be a gun. According to police, Mr. Fein was in that group of four diners and when police asked him to stand up, he initially refused.

The agent for a Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker said his client was targeted by police at the Inner Harbor because he is black, a claim that has sparked debate over racial profiling as police step up enforcement there in the wake of a recent shooting. Tony Fein was charged Sunday in the assault of a white police officer who received a tip from Harborplace security that a group of men were passing around a large silver object suspected of being a firearm. The device turned out to be a mobile phone.
