The Centennial Cue and Karaoke Club in Ellicott City is operating without the ability to sell alcoholic beverages, which isn't good for business, but things could get worse. Howard County's liquor board is considering revoking the club's suspended license, after Harrison Ho Kang, the sole legal operator, acknowledged at a hearing that he had left the business. He is charged with violating 10 liquor board rules. The club, which boasts 20 large pool tables and a long bar, is at 10045 Baltimore National Pike in a new shopping center behind the Double T and Forest diners.

When people who have moved away get sentimental about Baltimore, they get especially worked up about Nam Kang. This is the oldest of the several Korean restaurants in the Charles North neighborhood, the one with its entrance down a flight of exterior stairs. Nam Kang is open 17 hours a day, seven days a week, but many of its fans formed lasting attachments to it in the very small hours of the morning, after a night on the town.

Howard County's liquor board took the ultimate action - and an unusual one - against an Ellicott City billiards club by permanently revoking the already-suspended liquor license of the Centennial Cue and Karaoke Club. The board, which is composed of the five County Council members, said in a 10-page opinion that the club, at 10045 Baltimore National Pike, had so many violations of county liquor board rules that the licensee "completely abdicated responsibility for and supervision of the sales of alcoholic beverages."

Chris Amos always had a routine when he closed up at night. To make sure there was no one lurking outside the liquor store in Fullerton's Putty Hill Plaza Shopping Center, Amos would leave first, check the parking lot, and wait for his boss to walk out of the building and get into his car safely. "I wouldn't leave until he did," said Amos, 28, who had worked at the store for eight years. But on Thursday, his boss, Joon Am Kang, was alone in Putty Hill Liquors when two men wearing stockings as masks burst in about 9 p.m. and demanded money, police said.

Every day, Derek Kang used to chase 20 to 30 people he suspected of dealing drugs out of the vestibule of Sweet Sixteen, a women's clothing store he manages on Pennsylvania Avenue. Now it's down to just one or two, he said, after Baltimore police began a new strategy to eradicate one of the city's largest open-air drug markets: Take away the parking. Business has been down since late fall, when orange "No Stopping" bags first appeared on the meters lining four blocks of the West Baltimore commercial district, and Kang and other merchants along the strip have felt the impact on their bottom line.

Walk down the narrow, steep steps that lead to Nam Kang, and enter another world - a world where tofu is not health food and where some of the most intriguing dishes are the ones that come free with the meal. The best thing to do is sit back and enjoy the ride. The restaurant serves Japanese, Korean and Chinese dishes, but the multipage menu, divided by cuisine, tells only part of the story. Shortly after we ordered, bowl upon bowl of Korean-style appetizers appeared. These were not listed on the menu and were given free of charge, and they ranged from fiery slices of bok choy to bland rectangles of tofu.
