Of all the night spots in the country, Kevin Spacey's all time favorite can be found not in New York, not in Los Angeles, not in some international jet-setter hub, but right here in Annapolis. The Oscar-winner tells Men's Journal that his top spot for late-night lounging is Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge, on West Street. "It's both a music venue with live bands and a bar with a roof deck," Spacey tells the magazine. "A very cool place. " Metropolitan's new chef David Kidwell is kvelling.

We knew Frank Underwood could cheat, connive, even murder. But sing? Apparently so. Actor Kevin Spacey, whose malevolent "House of Cards" character has schemed his way to the U.S. presidency, will be showcasing (we hope) an entirely different side of his talents when he takes to the concert stage at D.C.'s Shakespeare Theatre on Sept. 29. The Oscar-winning actor, whose "House of Cards" is currently filming its third season here in Baltimore, told the Associated Press his show will feature some Billy Joel, some Simon & Garfunkel and some Frank Sinatra, along with some storytelling and "a surprise guest or two. " He'll be backed by a 40-piece orchestra.

I love the Entertainment Weekly covers this week that show Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the shoes, shirt, blouse and suits of each other's presidential character. It reminded me how lucky Baltimore is to have these remarkable actors making two of the best series ever on television here in Baltimore in 2014. One of the reasons they are so great is because they are so fearless as actors. Dressing up as each other's presidential TV character (Frank Underwood and Selina Meyer)

Having a big-time Hollywood star, not to mention one of the most prominent figures in live theater today, stop by to see your play is a pretty big deal.

Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near UB in Mount Vernon? Spacey told David Letterman last night that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee. "So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl. Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

NEW YORK - The green shoes. That's what caught my eye as I sat down across from Kevin Spacey at the Regency Hotel last week and took a mental snapshot of his outfit before asking the first question. Neat, gray pinstriped suit, with a charcoal shirt open at the collar - and green shoes. And you know what? He made it work. Spacey looked great. Unlike many film and TV stars, though, Spacey's appeal is far more than skin-deep. As much style as he has, the artistic and intellectual substance of Kevin Spacey is what impresses most.
