Patrons at Tark's Grill were eating in the dining room and drinking at the bar when the ferocious storm struck Friday night and the Brooklandville restaurant went dark. The Green Spring Station establishment was among many Baltimore-area eateries and grocery stores that not only lost prime weekend business but also merchandise — food that went bad in the heat. Tark's reopened Monday with a limited menu and estimated losses of at least $25,000, owner Bill Shriver said. "We had no ice and nowhere to get ice — try opening a restaurant with no ice," Shriver said.

Hurricane Irene did not inflict as much damage in Maryland as officials and residents had feared. But the storm came at a bad time for many businesses. Instead of shopping, eating out and spending money at summer attractions over the weekend, customers stayed home. Many businesses were hit with lower sales — or none at all, in some cases. Ocean City and other Eastern Shore attractions lost a crucial late-summer weekend when local residents and visitors evacuated. Some businesses that tried to reopen Sunday and Monday remained in the dark with power outages or struggled to replenish depleted stocks.

SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO BRING you bad news, but have you noticed: The weekend is over!"Of course, it's over," you're probably muttering under your breath. "It's Monday. Only an idiot wouldn't know the weekend's over."But, see, that's not what I mean. What I mean is: The weekend's over. Over as in finished; done with; past; gone. Forever.Still don't get it? Well, then, read my lips: The weekend, as we knew it -- that two-day oasis we stagger toward all week long, that mirage of unstructured, restorative leisure time we wait for all week long -- has ceased to exist.

CLEVELAND -- The Orioles' season should start for real any day now.Eleven wins in the first 13 games? That wasn't real. Or did you expect them to keep playing .846 ball for the rest of the season?A losing streak that reached five games last night at Jacobs Field and includes the remarkable lost weekend in Texas -- that isn't real, either, as anyone who watched the Rangers' 16-run eighth inning last Friday night can attest.Is that inning over yet, by the way?And did you hear the one about the shrewd speculator who got rich investing in the Orioles' team ERA . . . just before last weekend?

Fans of the late Billy Wilder are in for a serious treat this summer, as a handful of his greatest films will be given the big-screen treatment here in Baltimore. Tomorrow at the Charles, Ace in the Hole (aka The Big Carnival) will be shown at noon, with admission set at only $5. One of Wilder's most cynical films (as well as one of his most rousing), it stars Kirk Douglas as an opportunistic newspaper reporter who sees his chance for glory come when a man gets trapped inside a mine. Not only does Douglas' character cover the heck out of the story, he soon realizes that the longer the man stays trapped, the longer he can benefit from the poor guy's misfortune.

In half a century of writing and moviemaking, Billy Wilder took torn-from-the-headline subjects and born-in-the-boudoir jokes and created an amazing closed universe of wit. To see his movies is to enter an environment in which all the cracks are wise -- and no simple feeling can emerge unscathed. As a writer or director or both, he gave us some of the smartest entertainments in Hollywood history, from Midnight and Ninotchka in 1939 to Some Like It Hot in 1959. And movies like Double Indemnity (1944)

BOSTON -- About two hours before yesterday's game, Daniel Cabrera slumped his 6-foot-7 frame onto a couch in the Fenway Park visiting clubhouse, hardly touching the tray of food before him and barely talking to any of his surrounding teammates. Sam Perlozzo said he has found Cabrera to be much quieter since he returned Tuesday from 3 1/2 weeks with Triple-A Ottawa, and the Orioles manager chalked that up to the 25-year-old right-hander's increasing his focus. But when he took the mound with a one-run lead in the bottom of the first inning, Cabrera looked very similar to the pitcher who has struggled to find consistency all season and came into the afternoon with a 9.26 career ERA against the Boston Red Sox. The result also turned out to be familiar.

BOSTON - As manager Lee Mazzilli sat in the Orioles' dugout yesterday afternoon, batting practice canceled because of earlier rain that kept a tarp on the field, his pre-game media session was interrupted by a visitor who wanted to congratulate him. They shook hands, and Mazzilli gave a polite smile. It seemed a little forced. The visitor moved on, leaving Mazzilli to wonder about the unusual timing. "Congratulations?" he said quietly. "For what?" The gesture would have been more appropriate a few hours later, after the Orioles ended a three-game losing streak with an 8-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, led by David Newhan's five RBIs.

SAN DIEGO -- The idea of bringing Argentine soccer star Maradona to the United States has stirred up quite a controversy around San Diego Sockers owner Oscar Ancira Jr.Soccer International Magazine editor Graham Jones wrote an entire column, in which Ancira says "the nicest thing he said about me was that I am 'feeble-minded.' "He has received letters from fans saying they will turn in their season tickets if Maradona joins the Sockers.He has received calls from European writers, who have wasted little time in telling him he is "naive," if he thinks he can circumvent FIFA's ban on Maradona playing anywhere in the near future.

This wasn't the way the Maryland women's lacrosse team was supposed to follow up its third straight national championship -- with an 0-2 start.The Terrapins returned from last weekend's Southern road trip stinging from a 10-6 loss to Duke Friday night and a 10-9 loss to North Carolina on Sunday. It is their first 0-2 start since 1989."To think that we lost more games in 48 hours than I've lost in my whole college career is a crazy feeling," said senior Cathy Nelson, a third-team All-American.
