If you're used to Fells Point bar-restaurants that are a bit scruffy but charming (pressed tin ceilings, dark wood, dim mirrors), the Red Star will come as something of a surprise. It's in the gentrified area of the neighborhood, and even after several years looks remarkably new, with lots of glass and brick, blond wood furniture and contemporary art.The Red Star's biggest drawback is that it's been discovered, so even on a weeknight the dining room and the bar next to it are noisy and crowded.

Let's say you're a developer gentrifying several properties in Fells Point, and you don't want a "problem bar" to open right in the middle of them. You can always do what Larry Silverstein did. When the building that had once housed the Red Star restaurant (and for a short time, the Water's Edge) came up for sale, his company, Union Box Co., bought it up. Besides, Silverstein says, "I live in Fells Point and I work late. I had a problem finding a place to go for a light meal after work."

Tucked away on a side street in Fells Point is one of the area's sometimes unnoticed but well appointed establishments, Red Star Bar and Grill, a spacious eatery with walls that could tell a million stories if given voice. Manager Matt Straub gives a bit of a history lesson on the spot: Red Star was once a brothel in the early days of Baltimore. "Sailors used to dock at Fells Point and follow the red stars painted on the sidewalks to Red Star for food, ale ... and a little more," he says.

The Red Star Baltimore lore has it that in years past, Fells Point pubs that doubled as brothels advertised their wares by drawing a red star outside the building -- hence the name of this bar. Where -- 906 S. Wolfe St. Call -- 410-675-0212 Web site -- redstarbar.us Notable -- With huge wooden support beams, high ceilings, a long bar and tons of worn bricks, this spacious place is really a beauty. There's also no smoking inside. Vibe -- If you like a step up from the average rough-around-the-edges pub and don't mind paying a buck or two extra for it, Red Star is your bar. Crowd -- Almost entirely yuppies -- some from the surrounding neighborhood and others from across the city.

Lesaffre Yeast Corp. confirmed yesterday that it will close its Red Star Yeast plant in Baltimore by the end of the year, affecting 120 workers. City and state economic developers had offered incentives to keep the plant open in Holabird Industrial Park, but Lesaffre officials said operating that facility and another in Milwaukee was too expensive. It's not clear if any of the Baltimore or Milwaukee employees, who total 200, will be offered jobs elsewhere. A local union representative who previously had said he'd been told of the closings could not be reached for comment.

The O.C. Princess described by its owners as the ultimate fishing, and cruising boat, has been added to the fleet of party boats that serve Ocean City fishermen.The 88-foot O.C. Princess, which operates out of the Shantytown Pier, will run to the fishing grounds at 30 miles per hour. Its cabin is heated and air-conditioned, and is equipped with a galley to serve breakfast, lunch or dinner.The reason for the speed and accommodations is, said Charles Nichols, vice president of the Shantytown Marina, that fishing should be pleasant for families that come to Ocean City.

Last week was busy for B-more's out-and-abouters. First, they had to stuff their faces at Meals On Wheels' "12th annual Culinary Extravaganza." This year, about 25 local chefs served up various and sundry concoctions to several hundred food lovers. The evening's big hit? "I think the Elkridge Club's lamb-sicles are pretty good," said insurance guru Al Lietzau IV as he went back for thirds. Meanwhile, SmithBarney VP Jay Brooks said the Bicycle's pear salad came in a close second. Two nights later, eating out was a "have-to."

The dual restaurant space at 1300 Bank St. near Little Italy always struck me as odd. When it opened, it had a Thai restaurant, Lemongrass, and a pan-Asian restaurant, Tsunami, so close together that they shared a kitchen. Lemongrass took off, but its sister restaurant didn't - probably because it was perceived as simply a more expensive version of the first place. The new owners of the restaurants (who also own Red Star in Fells Point) have taken a different approach. They have turned the pan-Asian restaurant into Diablita Cantina, a casual Mexican place that's a step up from the usual tacos-and-fajitas factory.

I was afraid when I reviewed Baltimore's Tsunami, a pan-Asian restaurant at 1300 Bank St., that it wasn't going to make it. And, indeed, it closed less than a year after it opened, "merging" with its sister restaurant, Lemongrass, next door. At the time, one of its Annapolis owners told me they were planning to have either an Australian pub or a Latino restaurant there eventually. So I wasn't surprised to hear that Diablita, a Mexican restaurant, had finally opened in the space after almost a year.

BOSTON -- The Orioles, and Rodrigo Lopez and Todd Williams specifically, knew it shouldn't have gotten to that point. Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz should have never gotten to the plate last night with the bases loaded in a tie game in the sixth inning. If Lopez could have gotten out Alex Gonzalez, Boston's weakest hitter, the inning would have been over with the Orioles still in the lead. If he could have finished off Kevin Youkilis, whom he had down 0-2, the later sequence would have never happed.

For the second time in two days, a high-profile member of the baseball community has blasted Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro, questioning the validity of his impressive statistics. One day after Hall of Famer Frank Robinson said Palmeiro's offensive numbers should be erased because he failed a drug test, Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling told WEEI radio in Boston he agreed with Robinson. "Yeah. I read something the other day about his career, his career numbers and how a lot of his career numbers coincide with certain dates, and he obviously sat next to me in Washington [before Congress]
