When Eric Hartlieb decided to propose to Janice Jensen, he crafted an elaborate plan that would be the romantic memory of a lifetime.Eric, 26, took Janice, also 26, to Nags Head, N.C., in the summer of 1996. With the sun just beginning to set, the couple went out to the beach to sip champagne and mark the end of a relaxing day. Buried in the sand nearby lay a small treasure chest. After he helped her "discover" the chest, Eric pulled a ring box from beneath a pile of gaudy plastic Mardi Gras jewelry that actually belonged to Janice.

With more than 20 years of experience, R&B singer Joe has had a front-row seat to watch the genre evolve.  And in 2014, the 41-year-old singer born Joseph Thomas believes R&B needs to remember romance - and being in love with more than only yourself - still matters. To him, the influence of rap's street bravado has chilled a genre that has long identified with warmth. “I just want it to be a little bit more about love and more about respect, and to talk about things that's going on right now, as opposed to bigging yourself up and making yourself look real smooth and fly,” Joe said on the phone earlier this week from New Jersey.

Works by romantics and anti-romantics were among the attractions on Sunday's typically crowded music calendar. The romantic side came, appropriately, in the evening hours, with a memorable appearance by the Mendelssohn String Quartet and pianist Ursula Oppens at Goucher College. This was the 41st annual Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Lecture-Performance, an endowed series of free events that has brought top-drawer musical talent to the campus since 1960. In 1999, the quartet welcomed a new first violinist, Miriam Fried, an established and admired soloist.

A Baltimore police officer was sentenced to six months of home detention on Thursday for lying on a search warrant application to raid a house in Canton. The target of the search, David Esteppe, says Officer Adam Lewellen conspired with Esteppe's ex-girlfriend to raid his home in the 3100 block of Foster Ave. in March 2012. Esteppe has filed a lawsuit against Lewellen seeking monetary damages. The search by Lewellen and other officers turned up a gun and what police believed was drugs.

She's stealing hearts and turning heads.She's a quirky, new romantic who loves a look that's two parts attic chic and one part urban cowgirl. It starts with a '40s-inspired floral or minipattern printed dress -- a clingy rayon or cotton number with a waist-flattering bodice and simple schoolgirl collar or circle neck. Topping off the look is a head of wind-blown hair or a floppy hat with garden garnishes of blooms or berries.It's also about having a comfortable, easy attitude. With her ample, gored or bias-cut skirt and her clodhopper cowboy boots, she can stand at a slouch and stomp with a wide stride and weighted gait.

Like all of the great romantic comedies, Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music is unsparing in its depiction of human folly. In an enchanting production running at Center Stage, the characters pay a price for their blind self-indulgence, their benighted yearnings, their frantic pursuits of will o' the wisps -- but the cost never is as high as they -- or we -- deserve. A beneficent fate rescues us from our worst enemy, who always turns out to be ourselves. If you go A Little Night Music runs at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., through April 13. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays; 2 p.m., 8 p.m. Saturdays; and 2 p.m., 7:30 p.m. Sundays.

The danger of a romantic program such as that violinist Victor Danchenko presented last evening in Friedberg Hall is that everything may begin to sound the same. This is especially the case when a romantic violinist, which Danchenko clearly is, performs.With his sister, the pianist Vera Danchenko-Stern, the violinist played Leos Janacek's Sonata, Schumann's Fantasy in C for violin and orchestra in a violin-and-piano arrangement by Fritz zTC Kreisler, Tchaikovsky's Serenade Melancolique and Prokofiev's Sonata No. 2 -- all works whose moods orbit around a romantically melancholic moon.

"Adam" is a young-adult fantasy disguised as an offbeat romance between a man who has Asperger's syndrome, Adam Raki (Hugh Dancy), and a kindergarten teacher, Beth Buchwald (Rose Byrne), who loves him body and soul. It could have been a contender as a single-character study of Adam. As a two-hander - and a romantic dramedy, at that - it's alternately precious and awkward. The film rouses hope with its inspired, emotional stage-setting. The action begins with the death of Adam's father.

Wine is the fermented juice of the grape, which by itself is not all that romantic. But centuries of experience have taught us that, when carefully chosen, attractively presented and served to an appreciative partner, wine can enhance a romantic occasion like Valentine's Day in a most delightful way. In this regard, it is distinctly superior to, say, malt liquor. So what makes one wine a more romantic choice than another? It's a difficult question, and there are no hard-and-fast rules.

Everyone knows Virginia is for lovers. And Hershey, Pa., claims to be the "sweetest place on Earth." We don't doubt that, having gotten a whiff of the heavenly chocolate air. Then there's the town of Valentine in New Jersey - now that's a state that doesn't get a lot of love. But what about Maryland? Do we have any claim to romance? While the state may be known for its hard-shell crabs, Maryland has a softer side. You just have to know where to look. With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, we asked readers to tell us the most romantic places in Maryland.

When Mark and I got engaged, I had no idea what I wanted to do for a wedding. All I knew was that we didn't have much money and we wanted to go some place beautiful. Initially, I had wanted a few close friends to be there with me to witness the special day, but deciding on exactly who that would be proved to be an extremely challenging task, and he wanted to go off somewhere, just the two of us. As far as family went, my parents have both passed away and his had just started the process of divorce, so after giving it some more thought, I realized that the two of us going off alone together to get married might actually be the most romantic and perfect option.

A corrections officer and a gang leader are headed back to the playland where their convoluted romance began ("Couple are sentenced in city jail scandal," Jan. 15). Taryn Kirkland, a corrections officer, had a tryst with Steven Loney, a Black Guerrilla Family leader. Now, ironically, they are headed back to prison where their dime store-paperback liaison began. Why does it seem that occurrences like this only happen in the state of Maryland? An accomplished writer of fiction novels truly couldn't top this.

I love my engagement story, and I wouldn't trade it for the world but I can't help but think how romantic this time of year can be as well. Some may think it's cliché to get engaged around the holidays, but I think it's what is important to you. Maybe you two started dating around the holiday season or have special traditions you do each year. Seeing the beautiful snow just made me think of how many lucky ladies will be getting engaged possibly by something written in the snow or maybe sitting fireside -- the options are really endless.  I never really realized until recently that there is a more popular season for engagements, and this is the season.

A new sign for the adult-themed "Red Light District" store in Salisbury is illegal and the business is in poor taste, the Eastern Shore town's mayor said Tuesday. The North Salisbury Boulevard shop, advertised as a "romantic superstore," put the sign up Monday night without a permit, Mayor James Ireton Jr. said. "This is an egregious violation of the law," the mayor said in a statement. "The city knows it, our citizens know it and the Red Light people know it. …The sign and the store are in bad taste, and are bad for business in Salisbury.

So maybe you're not a cynic. In fact, you're a romantic at heart. You take all this kissy-face, huggy-bear Valentine's Day stuff seriously - or you love someone who does. But you're also busy, and maybe a little distracted. Or your sweetheart lives in another city. If so, all you need is a computer and a Web connection to do the romantically correct thing. Oh yes, a credit card helps - the best things in life may be free, but many others require plastic. Let's start with the basics (for guys)

If you find Paris impossibly romantic, don't miss Quebec. Street mimes and caricaturists cluster around the cobbled squares at the center of Old Quebec -- much like the Montmartre district of Paris. Boutiques brimming with charming knick-knacks line the winding streets -- reminiscent of the Mouffetard district. Hundreds-year-old tables, sea chests and porcelains fill the windows along a row of antiques shops -- recalling the Left Bank. Add the lilt of French accents and menus filled with promises of moules frites and escargots, and you may think you simply slept through the body-wrenching six-hour time change between here and France.

Baltimore will have to content itself with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, because according to Open Table, Baltimore is an also-ran in the romance department. The most romantic cities are, in order: San Antonio, Texas; Austin, Texas; Providence, R.I.; La Jolla, Calif.; and Columbus, Ohio. Baltimore comes in at No. 17. You can see the full list here . Headquartered in San Francisco, Open Table is a provider of online restaurant reservations. Its Most Romantic Cities Index was calculated, the company said, using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated "romantic" according to Open Table diner reviews, the percentage of tables seated for two and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine's Day last year.

Some occasions require a touch of romance. Nothing too formal or over the top - no scattered rose petals or strolling violins. Just good, interesting food served capably in a special setting. Baldwin's Station in historic Sykesville is just the place. Housed in a renovated 19th-century train station on the Old Main Line, the restaurant straddles the border of Howard and Carroll counties. Baldwin's Station's current incarnation opened in 1997. Owner Stewart Dearie is a restaurant veteran who managed the Conservatory at the Peabody Hotel and Antrim 1844 in Taneytown.
