After a break of two days -- or would that be a pause? -- thoroughbred racing resumed yesterday in Maryland when nearly 5,000 patrons congregated at Laurel Park and an unheralded horse named Cynics Beware captured the opening-day feature.Pimlico ended its summer season Sunday with upturns in betting and attendance. That momentum carried over to Laurel Park as 4,901 customers, 5 percent more than last year, lined up for free admission and programs, dollar day at the concessions and the opportunity for investing in 10 live wagering events and countless others shown on TV.They were for the most part frustrated by the $75,000 Find Handicap on turf when Cynics Beware, a 5-year-old gelding ridden by Mario Pino, prevailed by a nose at 8-1 in an exciting photo finish over the favorite, Hardy's Halo, and his jockey, Edgar Prado.

Call it Langermann's Junior. The same team behind Langermann's in Canton - chef Neal Langermann and partners David McGill and Mark Lasker - have opened a new restaurant in South Baltimore. The location, 1542 Light St., was recently the home to 1542 Gastropub and before that, the Reserve. Langermann's on Light, as it's known, was open on Monday for bar service. Dining service was to begin on Tuesday. What's on the menu at Langermann's on Light? Pretty much the same fare, we've been told, as at the original Langermann's: Southern-inspired cuisines like Charleston shrimp and grits, maple smokehouse-rubbed Duroc pork chops, Cape Fear scallops and Miss Ellie's fried green tomatoes.

"The People Under the Stairs" is your average comedy about child abuse, mutilation and murder. It's a yecch! a minute.Written and directed by Wes Craven in strokes so broad he could have used lipstick on a mirror, it plays off archetypal fears of dark places in old houses. In the sense that it tries to be primal, it is sometimes effective; in the sense that it tries to be entertaining, it's complete drivel.It might also be regarded as Universal's pre-emptive strike on Paramount's upcoming "The Addams Family," because the comic-macabre elements seem of a piece with the same broad tone in the Paramount film.
