The sixth-ranked River Hill girls basketball team jumped on Parkside early and never relented in the Class 2A state semifinals yesterday at UMBC's RAC Arena. The undefeated Hawks went on a 24-2 run to end the first quarter and didn't look back, building a 30-point halftime lead en route to a 78-39 victory over the Wicomico County team. River Hill (27-0) will try to win its second state title in four years against No. 4 City at 1 p.m. today. "We're excited about the fact we get to advance to the 2A finals again," River Hill coach Teresa Waters said.

The Parkside Fine Food & Spirits occupies the wide first floor of a midblock building in Lauraville. Its ambience suggests a funky antique store that woke up one day to discover it was a restaurant and bar. It's warm and colorful, and there are old furnishings, such as church pews for booth seating. It's yet another amenity for an emerging neighborhood that appears ready and willing to support businesses that respond to its needs and desires. There are so many young families in the northeast corridor, and Parkside means to be a welcoming place for hip parents and children day and night.

Last November if you had asked me to recommend a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner a week before the big day, I would have said, "Good luck with that." But with the economy in the tank, I don't think you'll have trouble finding a place this year. Your best bet might be to go to Open Table (opentable.com). Make your way to the Baltimore/Maryland page and click on the link to Thanksgiving 2008. Fill in the time you want and number of guests, and you'll get a list of available restaurants.
