For many years, Pepe's Pizza has been a reliable North Baltimore area eatery for all kinds - working men and women, professionals, high-school students and Little League teams. The pizza is solid, if not spectacular, the cheese steaks are a marvel, and the cooks know what they are doing with the rest of the menu. On a recent lunchtime visit, the parking lot at the corner of Falls Road and Lake Avenue was packed. Inside Pepe's, a half-dozen ceiling fans turned lazily, while several staffers scurried around behind the counter.

For years, Tio Pepe was my family's special-occasion restaurant. This was the mid-1970s, when the Franklin Street restaurant, which opened in 1968, was already established as a Baltimore classic. Even then, Tio Pepe seemed as if it had been around forever, and Baltimore spoke of it in absolute terms. Some of those absolutes no longer apply. Tio Pepe is no longer the most expensive meal in town. It's certainly no bargain — figure about $75 a person — but other restaurants that have much less to offer have caught up. A Tio Pepe dinner, though, still feels like a luxury item, bathed in drawn butter, covered with hollandaise, flavored with brandy, and layered with cream and rolled in pine nuts.

"Star Maps" guides you through a neighborhood best observed from a distance, a world of mental breakdowns, child abuse and prostitution -- a world where fantasy provides the only means of escape.How fitting, since it's all set in and around Hollywood, a world where fantasy often is reality. The result is a film that's not always pleasant but is never less than compelling."Star Maps" is the story of Carlos (Douglas Spain), a teen-ager freshly arrived from Mexico who's convinced himself he's an actor, and a good one; all he needs is a chance.

Peter Makris, owner of Pepe's Pizza and Pepe's Drive In, probably started his day yesterday as he had most days for the last 20 years: coming to work at 2 a.m. to prepare pizzas for customers and egg sandwiches for the police officers who would stop by to chat. But when an employee showed up around 6 a.m. to open shop, he discovered the body of his 72-year-old boss lying just inside the front door. Baltimore County police are investigating the death of Makris, a resident of the 3100 block of Woodring Ave. in Baltimore, as a homicide, saying he suffered trauma to his upper body.

Tio Pepe is one of those constants in the world of wine. As a nonvintage blend of bone-dry sherry, it doesn't change from year to year. It may not be the greatest fino sherry; it is simply the definitive wine of its type — certainly the best-known dry sherry around the world. Tio Pepe is a pale-colored wine of great complexity and elegance, with hints of almond and very subtle citrus. Its distinguishing feature is a hint of salt water, as though it were meant to be sipped by the sea. If you tasted this wine in your youth and thought it too severe, it's worth retasting to see if your palate has changed.

Francisco "Paco" Lobo wears out tuxedos the way marathoners do running shoes. The longtime Tio Pepe maitre d' keeps three tuxes in his wardrobe at any given time, and every year, at least two succumb to the rigors of dry cleaning. Lobo himself has held up far better. At 74, he is trim and lively and able to charm hungry, impatient crowds for 10 and 12 hours a day, five days a week, in the elegant Mount Vernon basement restaurant. His hair has gone silver, but the size of his tux jacket, 44 regular, hasn't budged since he started at Tio's more than 40 years ago — no small feat given the occupational hazards of a place that dishes up off-the-menu, twice-fried potatoes known as pommes soufflés before diners even have a chance to order.

Before winning the 2003 Pulitzer Prize, Cuban-American playwright Nilo Cruz was little known in this area. Then this past fall, Washington's Arena Stage produced his Pulitzer-winning Anna in the Tropics, and now an earlier play, A Bicycle Country, is receiving a moving Baltimore premiere at Mobtown Players. Cruz's account of the love, friendship and yearnings for a better life shared by three Cubans in the early 1990s is set partly on land and partly at sea. The first act takes place in the bedroom where one of the friends, Julio, is recovering from a stroke.
