After a run of the best of the '80s, Lighthouse Tavern's music selection hit its nadir with Eddie Murphy's "Party all the Time. " Most bartenders would have quickly pushed 'skip,' but not mine, who pumped up the volume - and, when asked if the singer was Eddie, said, "[Expletive] yeah!" and did a little jig. Like its music, much of Lighthouse, a bar that opened a month ago, seems caught in a time warp. It looks like a dive in a John Landis movie, its decor as vintage as the music playing on the speakers.

Canton is getting a new "upscale tavern" in about two weeks. Called Lighthouse Tavern, it replaces the old Sports Cafe, which closed earlier this month. Co-owner Patrick McCarthy promises "an alternative to the Canton Square scene. " McCarthy knows that area. He worked as a bartender at Looney's for nearly 15 years and at Coburn's for about three before that bar closed in 2009.  He and his business partner, Christopher Petrie, bought Sports Cafe nearly two weeks ago to re-open as "a place where you don't have to have someone screaming next to you," as is the norm at the Square, he says.

When Maryland's first slots casino opened a year ago, it faced some tough odds. Even with a strategic location just off Interstate 95, motorists who didn't know it was there were unlikely to discover it. Hollywood Casino Perryville, located in the northeastern corner of the state, isn't visible from the tree-lined highway. That might be about to change in a really, really big way. This week, Perryville's commissioners will try to resolve a pesky issue that has split their town of 3,670 residents: whether to allow the casino to erect an illuminated sign on its property so tall that it would be visible from the interstate.

For more than a century, Pooles Island Lighthouse guided mariners to the northern reaches of the Chesapeake Bay. Now the whitewashed granite tower has been relit and co-opted by nearby Aberdeen Proving Ground as a symbol of sweeping changes there. The bay's oldest surviving lighthouse, which has stood on the southern shore of Pooles Island since 1825, has been outfitted with solar lighting and is once again guiding boaters with a new signal: four flashes, a pause and then three flashes.

The U.S. General Services Administration has put the Point No Point Lighthouse up for sale, giving any average citizen with at least a few thousand dollars the chance to own a piece of Chesapeake Bay history. The century-old lighthouse in Southern Maryland is about five nautical miles from Point Lookout and 15 nautical miles south of Solomons Island. The structure is 30 feet around and about 52 feet high, with the keeper's quarters, fuel storage area and lantern room all in one place.

On a sultry morning, Dave McNally exits Smith Point Marina and aims his 24-foot Carolina skiff toward 1 o'clock. There, his destination, a faint, gray shadow, protrudes above the Chesapeake Bay horizon. Within minutes, the shadow resolves into the Smith Point lighthouse, a formidable octagonal structure with the haunting allure of a Victorian pile. This is McNally's weekend retreat. For the Minnesota resident who has spent his life exploring the Mississippi by boat, the notion of "going to the Territory" has an entirely different meaning than it did for fellow river rat Huck Finn.

ST. MICHAELS -- The Dibbs family was on a mission. The car was packed with snacks. The route was mapped out. The goal was clear: nine Maryland lighthouses - and one lightship - in two days. But while most of the hundreds of people aiming to complete the entire annual Maryland Lighthouse Challenge bunked in area hotels and inns during the weekend, Mike and Monica Dibbs layered one more obstacle onto their family's undertaking. They drove home to Lancaster, Pa., on Saturday night between the two legs of their tour.
