"Authentic Greek Cuisine & Lounge Coming Soon," it says. It's really coming. It will be called Limani, and it will occupy a waterfront space on the Promenade's southeast corner, at Central and Lancaster. (Charleston is on the southwest corner.) The restaurant will put a modern take on traditional Greek cuisine. The menu will include fresh fish flown in from the Mediterranean, grass-fed lamb and beef and homemade Greek favorites.

This weekend, I was not going to go Dutch. Yes, we were in the "Dutch Country. " Lancaster County, Pa., to be exact. But I was not going to stuff my face at Kitchen Kettle Village, gawk at Amish buggies or get sidetracked by the QVC or Pottery Barn outlets. No. The goal of this two-day getaway was to discover the other Lancaster — the one that sits downtown within a compact 7 square miles and offers an artsy and hip vibe. Theater. Architecture. Galleries. Farm-to-table eateries.

The spring thaw — if we ever get one — will likely come with a good helping of mud. The Pennsylvania Dutch are counting on it. The segue between the seasons is when the Amish and Mennonite communities launch their annual mud sales in Lancaster County. No, they're not selling dirt. The sales are actually auctions featuring anything from tools and furniture to toys and livestock — and a whole lot in between. The events benefit the region's local fire companies. The plan: The early bird catches the worm and mud sales get going around 8:30 a.m., so it helps to start out your day already in Lancaster.

Mention Pennsylvania Dutch Country, and for many, it conjures up images of the Amish people and their legendary Old World culture. Yet beyond that community's time-honored heritage, Lancaster County offers more. Visitors will find a vibrant and increasingly diverse population and a downtown bustling with urban appeal. "There are a lot of progressive things happening in the city," says Elizabeth Todd Lambert, a former Baltimore resident who relocated in 2006 and now heads LancasterARTS, a local arts advocacy organization.

There are haunted houses, and then there is the Field of Screams — a truly demonic destination. Hulking on the outskirts of Lancaster, Pa., the Field of Screams is three Halloween-y attractions rolled into one: A Haunted Hayride, Den of Darkness and Frightmare Asylum. There's also an entertainment area, with magic tricks and live music. There are ghouls galore — some with circular saws, others waiting to pop out from where you least expect them. It's not for the faint of heart.
