If you work downtown, you may want to stroll over to Sascha's Daily for lunch or an early dinner. You're likely to have an interesting, inexpensive meal there.The catch is that the cafe closes at 6 p.m. and the menu is limited. Step up to the counter to take a look at what Sascha's does serve: Saschette sandwiches wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbon; crispy topped focaccia sandwiches held together in sheaths of foil; tubs of freshly made salads, like the Tuscan tuna with artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes.

Mount Vernon's Sascha's 527 is an elegant but approachable space for enjoying a fine meal and a cocktail, its deep red walls adorned with colorful paintings and a chandelier complementing each other to provide a fun, classy vibe. Which is probably why I blinked a few times when I glanced over the menu and noted a cocktail featuring two flavors I hadn't seen, or maybe just hadn't thought of, since childhood - grape and lemon. For whatever reason, the images of Kool Aid's lemon and grape Purplesaurus Rex flavor danced in my head.

Stoli Oranj martini, straight up with a twist Sascha's 527 Cafe Sascha Wolhandler describes herself as "an aging prom queen." However, most of Baltimore knows her as the dynamic caterer/restaurateur behind the 25-year-old Sascha's Catering and 8-year old Sascha's 527 Cafe, both of which she runs with her husband, Steve Suser. Wolhandler also works as a food stylist on movies filmed around Baltimore. Currently, she is doing just that for the Renee Zellweger/Chris Noth film, My One And Only, now in production here.

When I went back to check, I was surprised to find out that it's been nine years since I last reviewed Sascha's 527 Cafe in Mount Vernon. Because it's close to The Sun, this has been a place I occasionally go for lunch when I'm meeting someone outside the office. By day, Sascha's, located on the first floor of a 19th-century Mount Vernon town house, is set up to provide a quick lunch of good food cafeteria style. At night, like a scene change at the theater, the place becomes a sit-down, not-quite-fine-dining restaurant.

Armed with a crepe stove, Cinzano umbrellas, blue-and-white checkered tablecloths and "a whole lot of nerve," Sascha Wolhandler decided to open an outdoor cafe in Baltimore during the 1970s, after being inspired by her European travels. In the 1980s, she expanded by starting Sascha's Catering and Sascha's Silver Sacs, a lunchtime delivery service. Wolhandler, a native of upstate New York, no longer owns an outdoor cafe. But she does own Sascha's 527 Cafe - a popular Mount Vernon eatery that offers global cuisine - in addition to her catering and lunchtime delivery businesses.

It's a smart idea for Center Stage to have a prix fixe buffet on its mezzanine an hour and a half before evening performances. You can get there early, and not have to worry about parking or walking from a nearby restaurant to the show. It can be a very relaxing evening. And you don't need a ticket to the play if you just want to stop for a quick, imaginative and inexpensive supper on the way home from work.One of the real pluses of dinner at Center Stage is the setting. The high ceilings, windows and exposed brick walls of the old building look elegantly contemporary when combined with slate-colored cafe tables, bentwood chairs and a sweep of plants.

It's a far cry from the simple little outdoor creperie she started with, but Sascha Wolhandler finally has a space worthy of her imaginative food. Sascha's 527 has opened at 527 N. Charles St. It's a colorful, funky, contemporary dining room with wild art and a gorgeous crystal chandelier at its center. Breakfast and lunch are served cafeteria style Monday through Friday. At 5: 30 p.m. table service begins seven nights a week. It includes "tastes plates," such as Indonesian chicken strips and leek and onion tart (all for under $10)

Having dinner at Sascha's 527 is more like going to a cocktail party than eating in a restaurant, which may make it the trendiest new restaurant in Baltimore. One of the hottest trends around is the popularity of the U.S. equivalent of Spanish tapas, small plates that are a little more than an appetizer and definitely less than a main course. Cocktail party food, in other words. Sascha's does this as well as any restaurant in the city, with everything from shrimp toast to potato pancakes and caviar.

Tomorrow night, the audience at Jim Rouse Theatre in Columbia will watch international ballet stars from the American Ballet Theatre perform selections from famous classical ballets. But to see the hardest job in ballet, say instructors from Columbia's Ballet Royale Institute - which is sponsoring the event - look behind the soloists and watch the corps de ballet move in unison, matching everything from the tilt of their heads to the angle of their feet. "It is difficult to dance in an ensemble," said Svetlana Cravtova, a Ballet Royale instructor who was a professional dancer in Russia before moving to the United States.

Sascha Wolhandler worked until 2 a.m. recently making desserts look good for a movie shoot on a $30 million yacht docked off Canton, and she never even got to see George Clooney, the leading man and presumably chief eater. "The only star was Christopher Plummer, which at my age is pretty exciting," Wolhandler says, although she refuses to reveal that age. "However, I don't think the 20- and 30-year-olds were as impressed." Plummer, a plummy-voiced Canadian who has been making movies since 1958, is perhaps best known for his role as Baron von Trapp in The Sound of Music.

If you plan to spend a good chunk of your summer at the community pool this year, you might figure your meal options are reduced to two choices: Order from the local carryout or grab a bite at the pool snack bar. But a diet of burgers and pizza for the next three months could make your swimsuit awfully tight come August. A more healthful and more economical answer is to pack meals yourself. "You get so much fresher food and you have complete control over what the kids are eating," says Sara Deseran, author of Picnics: Delicious Recipes for Outdoor Entertaining (Chronicle Books, 2004, $14.95)

LET'S BEGIN with the premise that most injury stories are inherently boring and will put you to sleep faster than a tire iron upside your head. Fell off the treadmill in the gym and sprained your ankle? Who cares? Rear-ended at a traffic light and now you have whiplash and one of those goofy neck braces? Yawn. Happens to a dozen people before breakfast every day. Then there is Sascha Wolhand- ler's injury story. Sascha's story will draw a crowd at a cocktail party, I promise you. Because Sascha Wolhandler is the only one who can rake a cracker through the crab dip and casually say: "I broke my foot playing a sex addict in the new John Waters film."

John David, whose moody paintings of artists and musicians are on view at Sascha's restaurant on Charles Street through the end of February, maintained a studio in New York for many years before relocating to rural West Virginia. Recently, I spoke to the artist about the sources of his haunting imagery and what he hopes to achieve. "The show is an expression of my feelings about artists and music," said David, who also worked as a jazz musician during the nearly quarter century he lived in New York.

An entrepreneur for 14 years, Sascha Wolhandler has learned to live with fear."It's very scary when you hold people's lives in your hands -- when you have to make enough money in your business to meet people's salaries, taxes, health insurance and other benefits. That's a lot of responsibility," says Ms. Wolhandler, who heads Sascha's, a catering concern based in Mount Vernon.Yet entrepreneurs shouldn't back away from risk due to the fears that business decisions can arouse, Ms. Wolhandler says.

Stupid. Illogical. Simplistic. Pandering. And those are its good points. Half Past Dead is way past bad. And that's not bad as in cool, or bad as in so bad, it's good. Nope, this is just bad as in bad, as in a brainless movie, starring an aging action hero with no concept of his own limitations, about which two points should be noted up front: 1) star Steven Seagal is not shown once in a full-length shot, the better to hide the fact that he's become as big as a house, and about as lithe as one; and 2)
