Good old Rusty Scupper. The Inner Harbor restaurant with the sweeping views opened way back in 1982. It has grown. Two major renovations have added private rooms and a 1,200-bottle wine cellar. In commemoration of its 30th anniversary, the Rusty Scupper is offering a fixed-price, two-course lunch for $19.82. The special, which runs until the end of April, features items from the restaurant's original menu. Appetizer choices include a cup of cream of crab soup, a cup of Maryland crab soup, Scupper house salad and a traditional Caesar salad.

Baltimore restaurants at or near the Inner Harbor have put together all-inclusive package evenings. They're not cheap, but they give diners a front seat for the fireworks. You can watch the fireworks from your table on the Wine Market Bistro 's patio (921 E. Fort Ave., 410-244-6166, winemarketbistro.com), where the restaurant is hosting a three-course Fourth of July dinner, featuring grilled shrimp, seared Arctic char and cinnamon custard bread pudding. The cost is $35. A limited a la carte menu will be available, too. Wit & Wisdom and Pabu , the restaurants at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, are promoting the panoramic views from their waterside location.

I have two things to thank the Inner Harbor's Rusty Scupper for this week. One, they've answered the age-old question (no, but seriously) of "What can you reasonably drink - not shoot - with Rum Chata?" and two, they've created a dessert cocktail I can finally enjoy. If you've never tasted the Italian confection Tiramisu, wine director Julian Demiri's description might be a little lost on you: "It's Tiramisu, in a glass. " But if you have? It should say everything. Tiramisu, which translates to "pick me up," is an Italian dessert made of sponge cake that has been dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese, and flavored with Marsala wine and cocoa.

One of the Inner Harbor's seafood institutions with the greatest waterviews in the city, the Rusty Scupper, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in business. The War of 1812 bicentennial also begins this summer, so the folks at the Scupper decided to give its looming neighbor, Federal Hill, its own drink: the Federal Hill Martini. A blend of VeeV Acai, Chambord and sour mix with a splash of Sprite, the cocktail is essentially a margarita served in a martini glass (it's also available over ice and with salt, natch)

The Rusty Scupper in the Inner Harbor has a new chef, Steve Bohlman; but his new menu won't be in place till the end of February. His plan is to change to more upscale offerings, which should be no problem for someone who was chef at the Polo Grill and Lennys Chop House, and worked at 208 Talbot and Linwood's. The delay is that Bohlman's new menu has to be approved by the Rusty Scupper's corporate office (which has granted tentative approval) and by a corporate chef, who'll visit the restaurant to sample the dishes.

The act requires companies with 100 or more workers to give 60 days' notice before firing 50 or more full-time workers.

On the day that officials of the Rusty Scupper restaurant had planned a news conference with Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke to announce a $1.5 million face lift, the company instead is confronting a court fight with employees who claim the Inner Harbor attraction broke federal labor law by firing them en masse without notice.About 25 of the estimated 85 to 100 fired workers at the Rusty Scupper have retained a Towson lawyer to prepare a class-action suit claiming the company broke the Worker Adjustment Retraining and Notification Act, which requires companies with 100 or more workers to give 60 days notice before firing 50 workers or more.

Remember how everyone threw on all their purple and hauled their spirited selves down to the Harbor Monday to see the Ravens off? Well, the "Today Show" folks are hoping at least some of them will be back there Friday as they film live to show off Baltimore's Super Bowl pride. Natalie Morales will be representing the 'Today' crew at the Inner Harbor amphitheater from 7 to 10 a.m. while Al Roker does the same thing from San Francisco. They'll want to see screaming, passionate fans of purple.

The problem: Drinking fountains near Rash Field on the Inner Harbor promenade weren't working. The back story: Everyone expects the street furniture along Baltimore's avenues and byways to experience wear and tear now and then. But it's troubling when some damage appears to be caused deliberately. That seems to be the case with this week's Watchdog. Marcus Mencarini regularly runs along the Harbor Promenade from his Fells Point home. He said he has noticed that as long ago as last summer one of the two drinking fountains near Rash Field, between the Rusty Scupper restaurant and the Maryland Science Center , was not working.

There are many headline stories that can get your readers attention, but what happened in Baltimore last weekend to a group of teenagers needs to be told, if for no other reason than to urge us all to see the good that can happen in Charm City. On April 24, a group of eight teenagers on their way to their senior prom at M&T Bank Stadium decided to begin their evening with dinner at the Rusty Scupper at the Inner Harbor. All dressed in gowns and tuxedos, it was an evening they vowed never to forget, and truly they won't.

EVEN THOUGH OUR crabs often come from the Gulf, our crab meat from southeast Asia, and our rockfish and oysters from farms, visitors still want to know where Baltimore's great local seafood restaurant is. For that matter, my next-door neighbor wants to know where our great local seafood restaurant is. Even I want to know where our great local seafood restaurant is. There are plenty of candidates, which wasn't true when I moved here more than 30 years...

By lunchtime yesterday, the giant mechanical teeth had chewed away at much of the Columbia lakefront building that used to be the Rusty Scupper restaurant. The machine had shattered the glass doors, torn off pieces of metal, bitten off planks of wood and then spit them back onto the ground. Demolition of the old Rusty Scupper building began about 7:30 a.m. yesterday and is expected to be complete by the end of the week, said David Costello, president of Columbia-based Costello Construction Inc. and one of four developers on the project.

To make a gross generalization, when people come to Baltimore they want to eat seafood on the water. I don't get back to the Inner Harbor seafood restaurants as often as I'd like to, given the interest in them; but I have an excuse in the case of the Rusty Scupper, which I last reviewed four years ago. I was planning to go back last January because the restaurant had hired a new chef, Steve Bohlman. He brought a resume with him that included work in the kitchens of the Polo Grill, Lenny's Chop House, Linwood's and 208 Talbot in St. Michaels.

Amazement was plain on 51 pretty faces when a feather-festooned figure stormed into the Rusty Scupper. This was not Attila the Hun - although, by the looks in some women's eyes, it might well have been. It was a Baltimore Hon. The Miss USA 2005 hopefuls were bewildered as Denise Whiting, owner of Cafe Hon, distributed pink and blue boas and cat's eye spectacles. Finally, someone exclaimed: "Hairspray!" Ah, hairspray, the beauty queens murmured. They may not know John Waters from John Wayne, but they understand that.
