When it's not quite 9 a.m. on a Sunday and there's a crowd gathering on the sidewalk, there's a good chance something special is happening. When that crowd is gathering outside the funky facade of Blue Moon Cafe in Fells Point, breakfast is that something special. Here's how breakfast at Blue Moon works: Upon arrival, head inside to track down a waiter and add your name to the ever-growing list. During our visit, at a quarter to 9, the wait was 30 minutes; an hour later when we left, it had swelled to a full hour and a half.

This Red Velvet Cake recipe sparked a lot of sentimental memories for our readers. Miriam A. Weber of Arbutus says she has been making this cake for her grandchildren's birthdays for 25 years. She likes to sprinkle the icing with coconut. Dorothy M. Maloy of Aberdeen says her daughter wanted to make the cake once but was out of red food coloring. She substituted green food coloring instead. "The cake tasted the same but that green color was most unappetizing," she writes. This recipe is from Linda S. Moffett of Baltimore.

A table brimmed with varieties of fruit, nut, red velvet and fudge cakes, stirring comments, reminiscences and a few comparisons. While crab cakes sizzled and freshly shucked corn steamed on the stove, a group gathered around the piano to sing familiar tunes and a team engaged in a lively game of billiards.

My friend and I both saw a bright red fuzzy insect on the ground. Never saw anything like it before! She thinks it's an ant, but I think it's a wasp. What say you? Red velvet ants are wasps, but the females are wingless and that's why they look like ants darting about on the ground. The adult males have wings but no red hair like the females. Males also can't sting, but the females pack quite a wallop, earning them the nicknames of "cow-killer" and "mule-killer. " Most of the body is black, but in the insect world red coloring means danger, and they aren't kidding.
