For the restaurants of Fells Point, the recent opening of the $100-million Thames Street Wharf Building on Harbor Point was effectively overnight delivery for 600 new Morgan Stanley mouths to feed lunch. Positioned strategically between the pubs and taverns of lower Fells Point and the more upscale offerings of Harbor East, this new building has no in-house eating facility of its own. There are dozens of easy walks from the building's front door, and one of the closest is RA Sushi Bar Restaurant (1390 Lancaster St., 410-522-3200)

When Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis slapped a single to left field in his first at-bat Friday night against the Cleveland Indians, he continued his climb up the franchise's all-time hit list. Markakis was by no means finished. He hit another single to left in his second at-bat off Indians left-hander T.J. House, passing Paul Blair for sole possession of eighth place on the Orioles' all-time list. When the night was complete, Markakis had his first four-hit game of the season.

Google "once-bustling Chinatown," and you'll find stories about them in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Butte, Mont., and even Calcutta, India. Almost always, there is one last remaining restaurant where a city's Chinatown once thrived. In Baltimore, the holdout is Zhongshang Restaurant, which really is something of a newcomer. Zhongshan opened only a few years ago, but 323 Park Ave. has been home to Chinese restaurants like Chinatown Cafe and Joe's Peking Duck House. I'm a fan of Zhongshan.

Over lunch at the Capital Grille on Thursday, the two old friends enjoyed an upbeat, forward-looking conversation. Kurt L. Schmoke had the tuna steak salad, Sheila Dixon the salmon with vegetables. Schmoke, a former mayor, imparted an encouraging message to Dixon, the soon-to-be former mayor who announced Wednesday that she will resign as part of a plea with prosecutors to end her corruption case. "I just wanted to remind her there will be better days down the road," said Schmoke, who served as mayor from 1988 to 1999 and is now dean of the Howard University Law School.

Remember the gourmet cafe? That was what they called those places that put chutney on your turkey sandwich. They've come back, but we don't call them gourmet anymore. Artifact Coffee, the new project from the Woodberry Kitchen , lies just across the Light Rail tracks in Hampden. The cafe, which opened in June, is a partnership between Spike Gjerde and Allie Caran, Woodberry's head barista, who is Artifact's general manager. Caran's efforts to bring a serious coffee program to Woodberry have been widely praised.

"There is no such thing as a free lunch," economist Milton Friedman likes to say. His conservative views don't hold much sway among congressmen. They don't believe him. Why should they? Members of the House have been getting free lunches for years. All they do is sign a check at one of the House restaurants, then not pay. The catering company that ran the House food services until recently is owed $302,339 by 250 representatives or former representatives. One owes $11,251. And guess who ultimately gets stuck with the tab?

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge said he is considering holding city prosecutors in contempt after they arranged a secret "lunch date" between two cooperating witnesses in a high-profile murder trial, but said he would not throw out the case or grant a mistrial. Judge Emanuel Brown said he found the prosecutors' actions "contemptible" and said they "violated the process in a way that cannot be tolerated. " Brown said he would defer a decision on discipline until after trial. Defense attorneys complained that they should have been told of the meeting, which they said could be construed as a "benefit" for the witnesses and running afoul of rules instructing witnesses not to discuss testimony.

Saturday was busy for the members of the Germantown Elementary School PTA. Parents and teachers spent the morning and afternoon shoe-horning cars into every square inch of space around the Annapolis school, handling the overflow parking from nearby Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Saturday was Homecoming, and the football game drew a sell-out crowd, including lots of fans of Navy's opponent, the University of Pittsburgh. At $20 a car - $45 for a bus or a camper - it was a big payday, too. The PTA parks an average of 575 cars for every home game, but for Homecoming, as well as the Air Force game earlier this season, the number jumps to more than 850. They used to park more than 1,200 cars on Navy football Saturdays, said former PTA treasurer Kevin Chase.

First came the decorations for the bags: a few words of inspiration, a drawing, and a heart with a pound sign scrawled inside. Next came the lunch: a turkey sandwich, an apple, an Oreo cookie and a water bottle — with most of the food paid for, and prepared by, Coppin State University students. And then came the social media campaign. The students huddled for photos to post on Instagram and Twitter, tagging their entries with #HashTagLunchBag, as they became the first Baltimore group to participate in an effort to feed homeless people that has been spread through social networking sites.

Among the most annoying calculations in modern life are those that project how much money you could save over the course of a year if you did something simple, like give up your daily Starbucks. It is always these modest pleasures that are targeted for elimination in the name of saving. It is never something like, "You could save $10,000 every year if you gave up buying fine jewelry. " Or "You could save $100,000 every year if you lived in a tent in someone else's yard. " Most of us working stiffs were already feeling guilty about what we spend on eating lunch out. Not that any of us have time to do much of that in the do-more-with-fewer-people workplace.

Gov. Martin O'Malley wedged himself and his lunch tray between two first-graders at a table at Hillcrest Elementary School in Baltimore County and began eating pieces of banana as he struck up a conversation with the 6-year-olds. Darlene Lopez kept eating her jelly sandwich, except for the crusts, and Mazzy Dring pointed out her first-day-of-school outfit. Neither was impressed that a governor would drop by for lunch on their first day of school, but perhaps that was because neither one knew who the man with the gray hair was, nor did they know what a governor does.

The Baltimore school system is raising the price of student lunches to $3 - one of the highest among the nation's large, urban districts - under a plan that also provides free meals to every low-income student. The price is up from $2.35 for elementary and middle school students and $2.65 for high school students. Some parents could end up spending $117 more this school year under the price increase, which is the fourth in seven years and the largest in that time. Others will save because their children will no longer have to pay the 40 cents charged for a reduced-price meal.

Inez Taylor of Belair-Edison sat in the midst of the city's bustling back-to-school rally Saturday afternoon, waiting patiently for the backpacks with school supplies to be handed out for free. She wasn't about to miss it. She has five kids, all school-age - and that's a lot of supplies. "Anything that can help me get my kids ready for school, I appreciate it," she said. The event, put on annually by the mayor's office, drew a few thousand people to the War Memorial Plaza beside City Hall.
