Adam Gershowitz, 25, stood inside a bar at Power Plant Live! a half hour before the United States was set to take on Germany on Thursday. He was decked out in American gear, highlighted by a pair of red, white and blue suspenders he got as a birthday gift. “Our destiny is in our own hands,” Gershowitz said. The grounds weren't too packed to begin with, but as the game approached fans started to trickle into the outdoor area. They watched on a 20-foot projection screen as the United States lost 1-0 . Fans moaned when Germany scored, cheered whenever the U.S. got near the goal and breathed a sigh of relief when the Americans were able to advance into the knockout round despite the defeat.

An astronomy observatory is among the new additions coming to Alpha Ridge Park in Marriottsville. The observatory is part of the Howard Astronomical League's public outreach efforts to encourage the community to learn more about astronomical science in a direct, hands-on manner, according to a release announcing the project. It will feature a dome 15 feet in diameter, Watson telescope and an observing platform. One of the structure's four walls will be used as a projection screen to view live images captured by the telescope and for educational presentations.

Last Wednesday, as New York Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda pitched to the Orioles' lineup, All Stars Sports Bar failed to live up to its name. The downtown bar, located to the right of the gentleman's club The Goddess and 1/8 of a mile from Camden Yards, looked the part at first glance: There was a long bar with more than 15 seats, three mounted flatscreen TVs above the bar and framed Ravens posters lining the walls. But after a few blinks, the problems became apparent. Before going any further, let's make this point clear: My expectations were not of a jam-packed bar such as Pickles Pub or even Pratt Street Ale House, an underrated spot to watch a game.

There's a Greene Turtle less than five miles away from Playoff Sports Bar and Grill, which opened in Reisterstown early in the year. A Buffalo Wild Wings sits even closer, a quarter-mile down the street. With standard pub fare and more TVs than a Best Buy showroom, all three spots cater to sports fans who care more about the view of the game than an extensive beer list. But if you've been to one Green Turtle or Buffalo Wild Wings, you've been to them all. So the question remains: Can the independently owned Playoff differentiate itself enough from the chains to emerge as the best option?

For years, De Kleine Duivel was a phantom. Owner Paul Kopchinski first announced his plans to open a Belgian beer bar in the spring of 2010, but over time and for various reasons, he watched his first two locations fall through. But at the end of last year, De Kleine Duivel (meaning “The Little Devil” in Flemish) finally materialized in the former Hampden lodge of a fraternal social club. We often hope the wait is worth it, but also know there are no guarantees for new Baltimore bars.

M.K. Milliken, a pioneering designer of projection screens used for visual displays, died of cancer Saturday at his Guilford home. He was 59. Minot King Milliken was born and raised in New York City. He moved to Baltimore in 1965 after earning a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Chicago. Mr. Milliken, who was known as "Kim," worked as a reporter for The Evening Sun for three years before moving in 1968 to Florence, Italy, where he continued writing and studied Italian.

First, there's the "Wow!" factor. Visitors to the darkened Science on a Sphere Theater at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt are immediately awed by the glowing "planet" that appears to float three feet off the floor, spinning slowly in space. "Oooh! Neat!" gushed a gaggle of second-graders from Crofton as they crowded the rail protecting the eerie, 6-foot orb. As they watched, it transformed magically from a majestic, blue-green Earth to a rusty, barren Mars. A few youngsters reached out to see if it was solid, or an illusion of light -- a hologram.
