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.

Bohagers' staff planned to entertain a crowd watching the Super Bowl yesterday with a 10-foot television screen and an all-you-can-eat buffet. Instead, the restaurant and nightclub on South Eden Street in Fells Point never opened. "We were all set for tonight," Bohagers' general manager Michael Miguel said yesterday, after deciding to remain closed. "Unfortunately, I think the weather got the better of us. It's snowing pretty good." The snowstorm hit on a particularly bad day for Maryland businesses, especially restaurants, bars and takeout joints, that expected a windfall from the year's biggest football game.

The hookah lounge, a staple of Middle Eastern culture, has now gained a foothold in American culture, drawing the attention of legislators and health advocates across the country worried about the impact of these purveyors of a new type of tobacco smoking. Typically, the patrons are young adults and college students. What attracts them to these smoking bars is not just to puff on sweetened tobacco from an ornate water pipe, but to relax with friends and, frequently, to drink alcohol they bring in themselves.

Edward Cooper kicked his cigarette habit 17 years ago, but he can't keep smoke out of his lungs. The 48-year-old database analyst from Hyattsville has recently become a billiards fan and plays regularly in a competitive pool league, where a blanket of tobacco fumes hangs over the tables and patrons prop open the fire door for relief. "Now that I'm in that environment, I feel like I'm smoking cigarettes three nights a week," Cooper said. "If it wasn't for the love of the game, I think I would have quit."

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.

Whenever you drink a National Premium or Natty Boh, think of Jerome "Jerry" DiPaolo, the colorful National Brewing Co. salesman and executive who helped make it one of the most recognizable and respected beers for more than 40 years in Baltimore and Maryland. It's sad that DiPaolo, who recently died at 95, never got a chance to enjoy the new National Premium. Once his former employer's flagship product, it is now back in bars, but not on tap, and on liquor store shelves. The beer, which last crossed the bar and coursed down the throats of its many fans more than 15 years ago, was recently revived by Tim Miller, an Eastern Shore businessman.

In honor of Patrick 'Scunny' McCusker, restaurants and bars in an around O'Donnell Square in Canton will be donating 30 percent of all daily sales on Wednesday to Believe in Tomorrow Children's Foundation. McCusker was perhaps best known as the owner of Nacho Mama's, the Tex Mex restaurant he opened in 1994 on O'Donnell Street in Canton, which was then unfamiliar territory. But he has also been lauded, in the days, following his death, as a tireless philanthropist. He was particularly devoted to Believe in Tomorrow National Children's Foundation, a Baltimore-based nonprofit that provides hospital and housing services to critically ill children and their families.

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."

BALTIMORE restaurateurs are once again lighting candles instead of cursing the darkness, thanks to a dose of common sense from Mayor Martin O'Malley, who learned from an article in The Sun on Wednesday that the city's Fire Department had banned from local restaurants and bars all candles, oil lamps and other tragedies just waiting to happen. Fire Division Chief Theodore G. Saunders said the ban was in response to the deadly fire caused by the illegal use of fireworks in a Rhode Island night club and the stampede set off by the use of pepper spray in a crowded Chicago night spot.
