Cast members from 1993's "A Bronx Tale" will reunite with Chazz Palminteri at Chazz: A Bronx Original on Monday night for a special fundraising happy hour. "A Bronx Tale" was the movie adaptation of Palminteri's one-man stage show of the same name. Almost 20 years later, Palminteri's love affair with his native borough would in part inspire the Inner Harbor restaurant that bears his name. Guests at Monday's happy hour will meet cast members from the movie, along with other Baltimore celebrities and sports figures who are helping the restaurant launch a new charitable fundraising campaign for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

When is this newspaper going to end its love affair with Wegmans? If Patuxent Publishing is being paid for its front page Wegmans story and its up-to-the-minute updates on the anticipation for the grand opening, good. But don't dress it up as a news story. The lines between advertisement, opinions, and news are blurry. If Patuxent Publishing is not getting a chunk of the Wegmans annual marketing budget then you are missing out. How about running a free front page story on my family business, or my wife's interior design business, or my neighbor the architect?

It's a story that simply won't go away. It's an upper-class soap opera, and even after the passage of 75 years it still packs a sentimental punch and draws a willing audience into the glittering world of the British aristocracy. It is the saga of England's Edward VIII (he reigned for less than a year and was never crowned), who found it simply impossible to continue with his royal responsibilities without the love of an ambitious commoner from Baltimore, Wallis Warfield Simpson, the Belle of Biddle Street, who was determined to bag a royal and crash her way into the upper strata of British society.

Here's the part where you tell me how wrong (or how right!) I was on a review. This week's bar review is about Anne Arundel County's Hellas, which has recently embraced craft beer after ten years in operation. From the review: "Before, Hella's was a restaurant that could have been (and likely was) easily taken for granted - the kind of affordable, wholesome place people go to on family outings to celebrate birthdays and winning report cards. The restaurant still needs to improve its look - which, unlike its progressive beer menu, is stale - and should give its wait staff a talking to for its apparent boredom while I was there.

Every few years, Valentine's Day falls on a Monday, which is very good news for restaurants. Think about it: It's only when Feb. 14 falls on Monday that restaurants can stretch the big dining-out occasion into a four-day, long-weekend dating extravaganza. This time, restaurants appear ready. High-end restaurants like Da Mimmo (217 S. High St., 410-727-6876, damimmo.com) in Little Italy are offering complimentary limousine service and promising long-stem roses for their female customers.

More than 1,000 letters that Vincent dePaul Gisriel Sr., a World War II B-17 Flying Fortress bombardier, and Martha Owens, whom he married in 1943, wrote to one another during World War II were stored in a box in a daughter's attic, where they remained unread for nearly 60 years. Martha died in 1977, and her beloved Vince in 2003. It was after his father's death that a son, Vincent dePaul Gisriel Jr., remembered the letters. He was seeking more knowledge about his father's wartime service flying with the 8th Air Force, based in England, on bombing runs over Germany.

I asked Jennifer M. Kroot to assess the Mike Kuchar films at Artscape. Here's what she said: "Medusa's Gaze" (2010) "It's about Mike's favorite subject: a person dealing with the aftermath of a relationship. A performance artist actually reads poetry in it, but the movie itself is poetical. Mike creates a pretty magical vision, even if the guy is just sitting in his living room, whether with very theatrical, crazy costumes or the fabric of the set. The love affair gone wrong comes out in all these mythological guises, including Medusa's gaze.

As she wends her way each morning among the three garden plots at her home on Summer Solstice Farm, Nora Crist carefully discerns which fruits and vegetables are ready to be lovingly plucked from their soil beds and sold that day. It's an ability she's been cultivating since she was a 7-year-old girl working alongside her grandfather, the late Sen. James Clark Jr., at the family's roadside stand on Route 108, which is just around the corner from...

For nearly a year, I have been trying to re-immerse myself into the sport and skill of swimming — more specifically open-water swimming, in which one entrusts the body and mind to a lake or bay of some unknown power and depth. This is more terrifying than that calm sentence implies. Sure, I have been swimming in pools — clear, visible, well-demarcated lanes of civility — for nearly 40 years. But this hardly prepares one for murk, chop, tides, wind, waves, passing vegetation that wraps the feet and legs, cold spots and warm currents.

The thrust of The Sun's editorial and the approach of public officials for decades for improving Liberty Road and other secondary roads with aging retail areas has been to treat the problems as economic development issues ("Life on Liberty Road," May 23). The solutions have been to update failing areas with new buildings without dealing with the core problems. People need to be connected to their neighborhoods. Suburban Baltimore County communities were built around the love affair with the car. They became commuting communities.
