I have seen some great sights at the Eastpoint Mall over the years -- the ear-piercing pagoda and the giant swimming pool with the you-hook-em trout come immediately to mind -- but I'm told they've come up with a yuletide lollapalooza for the holidays. Would you believe 14-foot-tall snow domes? (Snow domes are those liquid-filled glass things with little plastic scenes inside; you shake them and snow swirls. You know what I'm talking about now?) The Becker Group of mall-decorating geniuses came up with this.

Moscow -- Members of Grand Dynamo, a fancy private club in Moscow, have their own way of escaping the daily rat race. At night, gamblers, with Scotch tumblers and score cards in hand, place their bets ($10 minimum) on large trained rats that scurry through a neon-lit, glass-encased race course, prompted by a hand bell rung by a dwarf dressed as an 18th-century page."We've always had a lot of rats in Russia," smirks Maksim Malkov, the manager. "But this is the first time they've been organized."

The Annapolis city council will vote tonight on a bill that would revoke the liquor license of any social club that officially admits women and minorities, but excludes them in practice.The bill, sponsored by Ward 7 Alderman M. Theresa DeGraff, is aimed at local social clubs whose memberships are all-male or all-white. The measure would expand an earlier bill, approved in 1990. That bill denied a social club the right to sell alcohol if the institution's bylaws banned women and minorities.
