Solo night in Hollywood for the ladies. The night started off with a big bang: Angela Miller kicked off the night delivering a powerful, passionate, three-judge-standing-ovation-deserving explosion. She took the seemingly deadly risk of singing an original song: her "You Set Me Free. " This song was phenomenal and her delivery nothing short of award-winning. Raising the bar to an incredibly high level, Angela is a sure thing for the top 20 girls. Next up, two ladies that have been here before, returning "Idol" hopefuls Candace and Janelle.

Is there any bar or nightclub in Baltimore worth a $20 cover charge? If so - and I'm not convinced there is - it certainly was not Paparazzi Nightclub on a recent Friday night. The dance club that replaced the concert venue Sonar in February describes itself on its website as "one of the top destinations to visit in Baltimore nightlife. " It was only a destination if someone were in search of a test of patience. Paparazzi is split into two rooms, just like Sonar . On this night, the smaller area held a "Ladies Night" hosted by 92Q's Konan.

Heather Rodenhizer and Beth Schull left their boyfriends at home last Thursday night to visit an Arbutus bar. The two twentysomethings from Pasadena found themselves girl-talking over drinks priced just for them. Every few minutes, the DJ announced why: It was ladies night at Fish Head Cantina. For many bar owners, such promotions are obvious: Free admission and discounted drinks will attract women. And a bar filled with women usually attracts men. But while some view it as good marketing, others see it as a clear case of discrimination.

Mardi Gras beads were on the bars and pulsing beats were in the air Friday night at the new Bourbon Street super-club. It was Ladies Night, which meant women got in and drank for free. Bourbon Street was primed for partying; all that was missing were the people. At 11 p.m., Baltimore's newest mega-club was less than a third full. I scratched my head and hoped it was a fluke, because Bourbon Street has a lot going for it. True to its history, the building (which formerly housed Hammerjack's)

When investors purchased 129 acres in rural Carroll County almost 10 years ago, they knew they had a prime location. It was near grocery stores, a new elementary school, a shopping mall and a strong community college.Baltimore was an easy 40-minute commute, and not far from every home were mountain vistas and pastoral farms.All that had to be established was a diverse and affordable housing community and Multi-Properties Inc., the Baltimore-based real estate investors, would soon be placing sold signs on each lot.What investors didn't know was that they were creating a community of families with backgrounds as diverse as the home styles they purchased.

What girl doesn't love a sleepover with her friends? It's all about giggling and being silly together. It's a time for sharing secrets, painting each other's nails, and munching on cheese curls and chips while watching the latest Disney princess DVD or teen romance. So it also is for the young women of the ARC of Howard County, the nonprofit that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Twice a month, they gather at the ARC's respite care house in Columbia for their own version of a sleepover, Ladies' Night Out. And while the girls are mostly 20-somethings, with a variety of intellectual and physical disabilities, they are, in many ways, typical girls who love to hang out with their friends, away from their parents.

CHICAGO -- David R. Gillespie may be an unlikely Rosa Parks, but we have to take our civil rights heroes where we find them. Ms. Parks rebelled because, being black, she was told to ride in the back of an Alabama bus while whites got to sit up front. Mr. Gillespie could not tolerate paying a $5 cover price on "ladies' night" at a New Jersey bar while females were getting in free. This being a civil rights drama, you can guess how it ends. Mr. Gillespie took legal action, and last week, the walls of discrimination came tumbling down.

In a dim and dingy London apartment, Bridget Jones is huddled on a ratty paisley couch in rattier-than-couch pajamas, swigging wine from a bottle and sniffling as she morosely sucks on cigarettes. And just when it seems this scene in "Bridget Jones's Diary" couldn't get more depressing, Jones starts belting out the ultimate anthem of loneliness: "All by myself. Don't wanna be ... All by myself. Any more." Ain't it great to be a single woman in the 21st century? Apparently not, at least according to Hollywood.
