There we were, some friends and I, sipping our sangrias and margaritas at El Trovador and dipping our deep-fried chicken taquitos in chunky guacamole, when suddenly, in a blare of festive trumpets, music began playing. Hadn't the music started just a few minutes before? We had been so engrossed in our drinks, our conversation and the enormous platters of food (and these were just appetizers) that we hadn't noticed when the music had stopped. A few minutes later, it happened again. A blaze of trumpets snapped us to attention, and happy music filled the restaurant.

The Mediterranean diet is big news. That's good news for Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill, which is opening its first East Coast location Wednesday in Columbia. Based in Denver, Garbanzo has franchise locations operating in San Antonio and Oklahoma City but the Columbia location will be the first company-owned location outside of Colorado. Garbanzo lets customers customize platters and sandwiches with ingredients like hummus, chicken shawarma and felafel and also offers kabob platters, soups and salads.

Samos doesn't take reservations, doesn't take credit cards and doesn't have a liquor license. Yet it does have plenty of customers. What pulls people into this small, family-run operation is the food. The kitchen, supervised by chef and owner Nicholas Georgalas, dishes up zesty Greek fare in portions that would feed an All-American football player. The dozen or so tables split between two dining rooms, one offering a view of the open kitchen, are usually full — occupied by priests, workmen, staff members from nearby Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and extended families.

I get a shiver of satisfaction bordering on smugness when I find a little restaurant that does one or two things well, or that offers an out-of-the-ordinary menu, or that dishes up low-cost comfort food. So I feel pleasantly snooty that I visited Hummus Corner before some of my foodie friends. True to its name, Hummus Corner occupies an end unit in a strip mall that includes pizza, Chinese and sub restaurants. Plenty of dining choices and all of them predictable offerings. And all of them serve a densely packed zone of apartment and condo complexes around Lakeside and Owings Mills boulevards.

Tony Williams, 64, the original lead singer of The Platters whose renditions of "Only You" and "The Great Pretender" propelled the rhythm and blues group to stardom in the 1950s, died Friday in his Manhattan apartment. He had diabetes and emphysema. Born in Elizabeth, N.J., he was a parking lot attendant in Los Angeles in 1953 when he was recruited by songwriter Buck Ram to front the new group. Before Mr. Williams left the group in 1960, The Platters had four No. 1 hits and 16 gold records.

Even though Connolly's Pier 5 Pratt Street seafood house served up its last crab cake platter in 1991, Baltimoreans near and far still fondly recall the old, no-frills restaurant and wish that such a place still existed. In the week since my Connolly's column was published, my phone has rung off the hook, and my e-mail basket went into meltdown. Folks anxious to talk about the loss of the rattletrap seafood venue that defied the march of time and Inner Harbor development were more than willing to share a few memories of long-ago meals there.

Where there's a party, there's bound to be a cheese platter. And why not? It's the one dish a hostess can depend on. It requires no cooking, takes just minutes to assemble and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Creating a cheese platter can be as simple as serving sliced cheddar alongside grapes and crackers. But the large variety of domestic and imported cheeses in the supermarket today allows a hostess to be more creative and present a range of tastes, textures and colors on the cheese plate.

Until recently, Baltimore didn't offer much in the way of Ethiopian food. Diners craving a selection of top-notch Ethiopian restaurants inevitably made the trek to the Adams-Morgan area of Washington, widely considered to have the highest concentration of Ethiopian restaurants in the nation - and some of the best. One of the most popular and enduring has been Dukem, which opened on Washington's U Street some 15 years ago. Now, the owners of this widely praised restaurant have opened in Baltimore, apparently responding to the many requests from customers.

For the holiday season, Baltimore Clayworks has mounted an invitational exhibit that combines works by 30 of Clayworks' resident artists and 16 others invited from around the country.Among them are Triesch Voelker from Corrales, N.M., whose majolica-glazed terra cotta vessels and platters are decorated with animal figures; Adelaide Paul of Bozeman, Mont., whose hand-built sculptures are actually disguised vessels decorated with human and animal forms; and Joy Brown of South Kent, Conn., whose stoneware pieces, like the bottle vase here, are distinguished by their unglazed, dry, smoky surfaces.

Recently, I planned and held a small cocktail party in record time for friends from Washington, D.C. I made spring the theme of the party and used some of my new computer skills to create colorful invitations printed in bright shades of green, pink and orange. Next, I worked on the menu. Champagne, the lone beverage I chose to serve, proved to be a smart choice because I didn't have go to the trouble or expense of stocking a full bar. For finger food, I offered skewered scallops on a bed of watercress with a sweet and sour sauce.

Today - Election Day - George and Laura Bush will celebrate 25 years of marriage at their ranch near Waco, Texas. What's the ideal gift for the First Couple on this silver anniversary? A Republican-controlled Congress may top the list. But on a smaller scale, consider George and Laura: Portrait of an American Marriage, by Christopher Andersen (William Morrow, $25.95). Hot off the press, the book is Andersen's unauthorized tribute to the Bushes' 25 years together. A veteran celebrity-trasher, Andersen is responsible for best sellers including Bill & Hillary, Jack and Jackie and Diana's Boys, in which he courageously revealed that 19-year-old Prince William drinks, smokes and dates lots of girls (gasp!
