A proposal to require restaurants and bars to post letter grades rating their performance in city health inspections has some business owners worried they may lose customers if inspectors give their establishments a less than perfect score. But giving people access to information that allows them to judge how food and beverage venues stack up against each other in terms of cleanliness has worked in other cities, and there's no reason consumers here shouldn't be able to make the same sort of comparisons.

Galesville residents - many of them wearing stickers with the word "no" - protested a local businessman's plans to open a seafood restaurant and bar on Tenthouse Creek during an Anne Arundel County liquor board meeting yesterday in Annapolis. More than a dozen residents were sworn in to testify before the three-member board, which had yet to resolve the contentious issue late last night. William R. Woodfield Jr., the license applicant, also was present as his attorney presented site maps in an effort win a liquor license that would permit on- and off-site sales, as well as Sunday sales and music.

Tully's is the spacious restaurant and bar where Towson meets Essex.Although sticklers for geographic accuracy might counter that this isn't exactly the case, the date-hungry young people who pack this 400-capacity club in Putty Hill Plaza know otherwise. Tully's location on Belair Road just above the Beltway means it's within easy reach of any twentysomething kid with wheels.Opened as part of the national restaurant/bar chain O'Toole's in 1990, this place soon changed its name to Tully's while retaining the franchise tie, says manager Sandy Lang.

There is no drive-through window at Howard's Subway restaurant and bar in Linthicum. No "lite" menu or microbrews. No ferns.Visitors to this Hammonds Ferry Road landmark might think they have descended into a memory of the family club basement -- what with the dark paneling, red vinyl seats, half-windows. All that's missing is the Ping-Pong table covered with folded laundry.Yet this comfortable familiarity draws patrons back to Howard's year after year, notes owner Norman Sensibaugh. He should know -- his father was Howard, the same Howard whose dream of owning a restaurant and bar came true in the basement of his home.

There's no denying — craft beers are more popular than they've been in decades. To keep up with demand, restaurants and bars have upped their draft selections, hosted beer tastings and started pairing food with beers. In the Baltimore region, few restaurants fill this niche as well as Frisco Taphouse and Brewery . This Columbia restaurant and bar serves a fantastic selection of beers, and backs it up with solid dishes. Crowds have responded — on a recent Wednesday night, Frisco was packed.

Porter's , the Federal Hill corner restaurant and bar once known as Ransome's , is back in business. Now known as Porters , the place has apparently lost an apostrophe but regained a lot of customers from the old days, the neighborhood folks who missed having a reliable place closer to their homes than Light Street. The new Porters is off to a good start, according to co-owner Kevin Cooper, who says that the folks living on the east side of Federal Hill were "extremely excited about the reopening of Porters in any form at all."

Hundreds of people pour in and out of the Cuban restaurant and bar Little Havana every weekend. But I'll bet few ever stroll across the street for a nightcap at McCracken's on Key. I did a couple of weeks ago, and now, the nearly unmarked corner bar is my new favorite spot to watch football in South Baltimore. McCracken's occupies the first floor of a building right across Key Highway from Little Havana. There is no name on the outer brick walls just yet, though owner Jim Meehan plans to put one up in the near future.

Music blared from Bertha's Restaurant and Bar at 10 p.m. on Cinco de Mayo. Other Fells Point pubs were packed full of partyers. But a block east of Broadway -- within earshot of all the festivities -- only three people sat inside BAR. And one of them was the bartender. They drank and talked among themselves while Pink Floyd's "Money" played on the stereo and a ceiling fan with only two blades left slowly spun overhead. You could call a place like BAR a dive or a relic. But it's also a quirky little refuge in a changing neighborhood, where a dwindling number of people can come to escape the wilder, crazier bars on Broadway or Thames Street.

From an old lumber yard near Fells Point to an industrial pier in Canton, developers hope to transform parts of the city's crusty waterfront into a paradise of open-air bars and restaurants -- complete with tiki huts and palm trees.The projects carry such exotic names as Parrot Island, Craven's Island and the Piranha Grill. And they would add more than 1,200 restaurant and bar seats to the harbor neighborhoods, according to proposals that the city is considering -- or has approved.But community leaders, preservationists and some city officials say the exotic decor will clash with the neighborhoods' historic architecture.

Smokers can still light up in some Howard County restaurants and bars, but not for long. The protracted local struggle over the issue formally ends June 1, when the county's no-smoking law takes full effect. The final legislation, which allowed smoking to continue in bars and restaurants with physically separate sections until June, passed on a 3-2 party-line County Council vote June 5 of last year. County officials plan to publicize the ban affecting bars and restaurants at an afternoon news conference at Mi Casa, a restaurant in the 3300 block of St. Johns Lane in Ellicott City, whose owners eliminated smoking more than a year ago. Howard County becomes the first location in the Baltimore area to ban smoking in restaurants and bars, following Talbot, Prince George's and Montgomery counties in Maryland.

Nobody knows who it was, but someone definitely ratted out Duke, and he's not happy. You can see it in his eyes. And in his tail. OK, Duke is a dog, a German shepherd/lab mix to be exact. But he's as much the main attraction at One-Eyed Mike's, a Fells Point restaurant and bar, as the Grand Marnier. At least he was until the city Health Department came calling with an ultimatum: Lose the dog or lose the business. So the dog went. That was six weeks ago, and some customers and staff still aren't over it, including bartender David Cullen, who colleagues say was crushed by the development.
