Nell Evans of Aberdeen was looking for the recipe for the onion soup served at Outback Steakhouse. He said the last time he ate there he was told the restaurant was not going to have the soup anymore. He was hoping someone would have the recipe so that he could make it for himself at home. Susan Fees of Port Carbon, Pa., sent in a recipe for Outback Steakhouse walkabout soup that she thinks may be the one Evans is looking for. She said it comes from a book she has that features popular copycat recipes from many chain restaurants.

Who would have thought that in its inaugural season, performances at Howard Community College's Theatre Outback would be a hot ticket?Certainly not its producing director, Valerie Costantini, who is also the humanities division chairwoman at HCC."We estimated selling 50 seats a night," she said. "Well, we have practically sold out every show."In fact, her drama department was off by a factor of three. The 150-seat venue could not accommodate the demand for "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune" earlier this year and turned away 70 people.

Outback Steakhouse presented a $1 million donation to Operation Homefront, a nonprofit organization providing emergency financial and other assistance to military families and wounded service members. The big-check ceremony took place in front of the Outback Steakhouse located in Ellicott City. That's a good local angle, but the better one is that Marylanders benefit from Operation Homefront which I first learned about from the Restrepo DVD.

Four of us arrive at Canton's Outback on a Thursday 6:30 p.m. and are immediately seated in a prime spot, no pun intended. The steakhouse is half full. What's wrong with this picture? If you don't know, try getting a table without a wait at the Hunt Valley location of this popular Aussie-themed chain, or any other Outback in the 'burbs. The steakhouse's appeal for adults is, of course, beef and lots of it. Its appeal for kids is -- well, I'm not sure what the appeal is. It always seemed like an adult's restaurant to me, in spite of the children's menu.

The continent of Australia is about as far from Maryland as one can get without leaving Earth altogether, the arid Australian Outback as different from the fertile Chesapeake Bay as two regions can be. All of which makes the Outback an intriguing choice for the next major exhibit at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It promises to be the setting for an exotic array of creatures that have never been seen in an American aquarium. It also will reinforce the 20-year-old aquarium's stature as a global biopark capable of telling powerful stories about habitats around the world - and the need to protect them.

Coming to Baltimore, mate, is one of Outback Steakhouse Inc.'s Australian-theme Outback restaurants, the company said yesterday. The Tampa-based collection of chain restaurants plans to open one of its few urban Outbacks in Canton's American Can Company building by late fall in the space once occupied by the Bibelot bookstore. Outback operates a Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and a Roy's in the city in Inner Harbor East, through joint venture and franchise agreements. Outback will lease the last available space in the building - 6,300 square feet - developed and operated by Struever Bros.

THE RED CENTER, AUSTRALIA / / Ten days, one wallaby, no kangaroos. My fantasy -- adorable 'roos galumphing around every bush in the Outback -- was just that. Camels -- wild ones -- were another matter. About 60,000 of the feral beasts roam the Outback that unfolded outside the picture window of my train compartment. I had come to Australia to ride the Ghan, the legendary train that bisects the country, traveling from Adelaide in the south to Darwin in the north. It's sometimes called the "Hundred Year Dream" -- the last track was laid just two years ago, capping nearly a century of struggle to connect one end of this great emptiness to the other.

Then you have some idea of what eating at the Outback is like. It's one of those full-service chain restaurants that are probably the wave of the dining future. To tourists, eating out in Annapolis means seafood restaurants and historic inns; but a friend who lives in the area says it's the Outback that's packed all the time.

Nebraska quarterback Joe Ganz was sprawled out on the ground, trainers huddled around him, teammates, coaches and fans wondering whether he would be able to continue playing yesterday. Ganz eventually made his way to the sideline, cleared his head, got back in the game and ended up hoisting the Gator Bowl's Most Valuable Player trophy. His comeback provided an appropriate ending for Nebraska's season. After all, the Cornhuskers enjoyed one of college football's best turnarounds. Ganz shook off a horrible first half and a slight concussion, threw for two touchdowns and led Nebraska to a 26-21 win over Clemson in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., giving the storied program plenty of optimism after coach Bo Pelini's first season.

"It was the first decision I made as a father," Aiken told the magazine, which arrives on newsstands tomorrow.

In Penthouse B, high atop the National Aquarium in Baltimore's Australian exhibit, blue-shirted personnel follow the posted rule: "Start announcing yourself to the bats." Six gray-headed fruit bats, the new exhibit's only mammals, sway inside their cage. They don't have the people-coming-into-their-space thing down yet. Hi, guys. Hi, bats. Hi, babies. The bats seem remotely satisfied, but they are still adjusting to their new digs. In October, they became the first tenants in the $74.6 million "Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes," the aquarium's largest expansion in its 24-year history.

Once again, the holiday season is upon us. And Santa won't be the only one with travel headaches. Just think about the teams that will participate in this year's non-Bowl Championship Series games. Take Texas, for example. The Longhorns were steered toward a big BCS payday, probably at the Fiesta Bowl, until Kansas State upset Oklahoma, seriously messing with Texas. Now the Longhorns get a trip to the Holiday Bowl. Almost the same, right? After all, it's only another 365 miles - and $12 million - from Tempe, Ariz.
