Call it Langermann's Junior. The same team behind Langermann's in Canton - chef Neal Langermann and partners David McGill and Mark Lasker - have opened a new restaurant in South Baltimore. The location, 1542 Light St., was recently the home to 1542 Gastropub and before that, the Reserve. Langermann's on Light, as it's known, was open on Monday for bar service. Dining service was to begin on Tuesday. What's on the menu at Langermann's on Light? Pretty much the same fare, we've been told, as at the original Langermann's: Southern-inspired cuisines like Charleston shrimp and grits, maple smokehouse-rubbed Duroc pork chops, Cape Fear scallops and Miss Ellie's fried green tomatoes.

If you were a 19th-century Frenchman, you would likely be served three courses of asparagus during your prenuptial dinner. The vegetable with the suggestive shape, writes Helen Yoest in "Plants with Benefits," was thought to stir amorous feeling. Little did the French know then, confides Yoest, the author of a book on aphrodisiac plants, but asparagus is rich in folic acid, which boosts histamine production — which helps on wedding nights. The benefits of asparagus, she writes, "seem to be in that gray area between actual aphrodisiac effects and the power of suggestion.

As three Arabbers rode through South Baltimore on their horse-drawn fruit cart, a Chevrolet Impala barreled toward them. The men jumped off just before the car slammed their wagon into a utility pole, spilling watermelons and cantaloupes across the sidewalk. Tony, the tan Palomino that had been pulling the cart, escaped with only minor scratches. He was soon munching grass in a nearby median. The produce vendors consider themselves lucky to have survived, but the incident last year was one of several recent crashes that have put Baltimore's community of Arabbers on edge.

For a third day running, several hundred residents in South Baltimore were without power Wednesday, as Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews continued working to address heat-related failures to the city's power grid. Issues first began to arise in Canton, Upper Fells Point and other neighborhoods around Patterson Park on Monday afternoon, during a sweltering start to the work week, and have continued - on and off - since, residents and BGE officials have said. As of Wednesday afternoon, some residents had spent more than two dozen hours without air conditioning, as temperatures have reached into the 90s. About 7 a.m. Wednesday, a failure occurred on an underground cable after a high energy demand coupled with the heat to overwhelm it, said Rachael Lighty, a BGE spokeswoman.

The restaurant was known for its generous breakfasts that included scrapple, an old-fashioned menu staple, as well as bacon, sausage, corned beef hash and sizzling ham. There were heaping portions of beef or chicken stew, lima bean and pea soup, fried crab cakes, chili con carne, Spanish omelets, braunschweiger sandwiches, and sour beef and dumplings.

Two young children and a man died as a two-alarm fire swept through their Curtis Bay home early Saturday. A woman, who neighbors said was the children's mother, was in critical condition after jumping from a second-story window. Neighbors in the 4100 block of Grace Court described a chaotic scene after the fire broke out about 4 a.m. Some criticized the response of the Fire Department, saying units took too long to arrive on the scene. They said firefighters did not show a sense of urgency until the woman, who had escaped by the time they arrived, told them children were trapped inside.
