Turns out that South Beach isn't exactly the perfect place for someone on the South Beach Diet. Who knew? The hottest spot (and the coolest spot at the same time) in Miami might be the best place on Earth to go girl-watching and mojito-sipping, but it apparently is no place for a highly disciplined carb-counting columnist. Still, a meal at Larios in South Beach is not a bad way to kick off Super Bowl week. The oceanfront restaurant is owned by singer Gloria Estefan and features a large selection of terrific Cuban dishes.

The beach. The beautiful water. The strolls along the boardwalk for summer foods. The lovely house with the wraparound porch and the sunny breakfast nook. And the two-hour backup on the Bay Bridge. The rowdy, half-naked crowds pushing in line for french fries and saltwater taffy. The expensive rental house with the unstable porch, not to mention the dingy decor. Beach vacations can be a mixed bag - and that's when you've taken care of the things you can plan for. Bad weather, unexpected traffic and incompatibility among friends who don't work so well as weeklong housemates can all put a damper on what you hoped would be a great vacation.

The venerable Lord Baltimore Hotel, last of the city's grand hostelries, is poised for a rebirth after undergoing a seven-month, multimillion-dollar restoration that celebrates its past while making it a 21st-century destination for guests and those out for a night on the town. And along with freshly painted and decorated rooms — both public and private — the Lord Baltimore, formerly the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore, has a new owner. The hotel, which has stood at the corner of Baltimore and Hanover streets since its opening in late 1928, was purchased by Rubell Hotels, whose principals are Don, Mera and Jason Rubell, in August for $10 million.

MIAMI BEACH -- Look up, beyond the 16th story, toward the electric blue sky and you see them: wings. This building has wings -- white concrete plumes jutting off the sides, making it look like some architectural version of Pegasus.That should come as no surprise. At the Delano, anything's possible. Hotels can be things with feathers, sofas stand 12 feet tall and music plays underwater in the Roman bath.This is hotel as myth, mirage. It's as un-Marriott as life gets. And it's perhaps South Beach's trendiest resort.

An initial health advisory had been issued Saturday.

MIAMI -- As the national manhunt for the suspected killer of fashion designer Gianni Versace intensified yesterday, an air of unease hung over glitzy South Beach -- and particularly the gay community here.Police released little new information about Andrew Phillip Cunanan, the prime suspect and reported gay prostitute who has been linked to four other slyings around the country, most often of gay men he seemed to know.WPLG-TV, an ABC affiliate, reported last night that video from a surveillance camera at a hotel near the scene of Versace's death might further link Cunanan to the crime.

To "do" South Baltimore, the way one "does" South Beach, would be as laughable as it is impossible. Fort Avenue can't be done. It just is. You want scene? Try Captain Larry's on Tuesdays for half-price margaritas and fish sandwiches. You'll see everyone - from the neighborhood, anyway. You want sexy? Another Natty Boh might help with that. (You might want to make it two.) There's an ongoing, low-energy effort to get people to refer to the neighborhood as SoBo, as if that would automatically impart the acronymic cachet of, say, SoHo.

Another day, another inquiring mind wanting to know what it's like to be baseball's next big thing. Manny Machado is ushered into the large conference room at the Orioles' Ed Smith Stadium training complex, his attention quickly drawn to the portraits on the far wall. Brooks Robinson. Frank Robinson. Boog Powell. Cal Ripken. All in a row. "Someday," he says almost sheepishly, "I want to be up on that wall. " Someday, he probably will, but first things first. There is the small matter of living up to the advance billing and Machado instinctively knows that he won't be able to do that if he takes his eye off the ball.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has spoken to his team on several occasions this season, but none of the speeches was as harsh or intense as the one he delivered late Wednesday night. After the Orioles' 13-5 loss to the Texas Rangers, which completed a three-game series sweep and was the team's 11th defeat in 14 games, Showalter closed the clubhouse and challenged his players to increase their effort and execution. "That's probably as angry as I've seen him, but it's deserved," catcher Matt Wieters said.

Officials with the county's department of health said Friday that samples show that bacteria are at acceptable levels for swimming, according to a statement from the agency. Swimming and other contact with the water was banned on June 13 due after high levels of bacteria were found in water samples, which could make people sick, officials said.

Anne Arundel County health officials warned Monday against swimming, water skiing or any other contact with water at Glen Isle in Riva because the water there could make people sick. Water samples taken last Tuesday and Thursday at the South River beach contained high bacteria levels, which officials said could be caused by a variety of factors, including rainfall, tidal action and wildlife. Anyone who does touch water there should wash with soap and warm water immediately, officials say, and also wash any clothing that got wet or splashed.

No coach, no 'D,' no title Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun This is an easy one: Nope. Actually, I hope Miami never wins an NBA championship, with me being from Cleveland and all. Here's why the Heat will be challenged: Who's going to play defense? LeBron James can hold his own when he wants to, but Paul Pierce abused him in the playoffs. Chris Bosh can't cover his shadow and he's too slight to guard a true power forward, let alone a center. Dwyane Wade is a fabulous talent, but defense has never been his calling card.

Loud salsa music, South Beach atmosphere, mojitos, a live-wire bar crowd, outdoor seating - what's not to like with the opening of Talar a (615 President St., TalaraBaltimore.com) in Harbor East? Well, if you're not a fan of raw fish, you might not be so excited about Baltimore's colorful new seviche bar. In which case, think of seviche as sushi: the next generation. Or tell yourself it's not really raw fish at all; it's lime-marinated, which acts to preserve the seafood, and flavored with good things like cilantro and chile.

Amid the most stifling, sticky weather in recent memory, the water at one of Sandy Point State Park's two beaches remains off-limits until at least tomorrow because of bacteria levels that the Anne Arundel County Department of Health have deemed hazardous for human contact. The county's advisory, the first issued at the park on the Broadneck Peninsula in more than 20 years, applies to the east beach, which is usually reserved for groups. The South Beach is not effected. The Department of Health, which usually tests the bay waters at Sandy Point five times a week during the swimming season, has been running tests daily since closing the beach Saturday, said spokeswoman Elin Jones.

No better time than now to talk bathing suits. Reading travel sections and planning some beach time can make sliding through drifts of ice and slush more tolerable, even as we gain first-hand understanding of the wind chill formula.The lucky ones among us have booked quick island getaways or a Florida week with gran. Funny, how in the cold months we really miss family who had the prescience to invest in a retirement condo near the beach.But the island and beach vacations are far more accessible now than they were once upon a time when only the idle rich wintered in southern comfort.

The bad news for the Roman Catholic Church: Father Alberto Cuti?, the widely popular priest at St. Francis de Sales in Miami Beach, was photographed cavorting romantically on a Florida beach. The good news: He was with a woman, thank God, not an altar boy. Given the torrent of sordid revelations in recent years, the church should be positively giddy with relief that one of its rising stars was caught snuggling with a very adult-looking female. No apparent felony was in progress while Mr. Cuti?
