Bring your smartphones, your charming self and perhaps a blog-reading friend or two. Kids are also welcome , and the group will be outside in the patio area, so there is more space for kids to be included in an adult party yet not required to sit still for (what may seem like) an eternity to them. The Baltimore Sun is bringing a posse of their staff to engage with those curious about their " blog network , The Mobbies , the Explore Howard site redesign, the new  Howard County Desk - Baltimore Sun Facebook Page and anything else bloggers and readers would like to discuss.

The performance of Baltimore's first- and second-grade pupils fell significantly in reading and math on a national standardized test, mirroring the drops on statewide assessments this year. The results show that the academic performance of even the city's youngest students has declined, in some cases by as much as 6 percentage points in a single grade and subject. While a news release sent late Friday emphasized that students are still performing above the national average in some subjects, the system acknowledged that the test scores are a "call to action.

Sarah Flynn (Towson) set a Stanford women's lacrosse record for career goals after scoring twice in the Cardinal's 12-10 win over Oregon on Sunday in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament championship. The senior's 144 goals break the record of 143 set by Megan Burker (Bryn Mawr) in 2006. Flynn has 48 goals this season for the No. 9 Cardinal. Stanford goalie Lyndsey Munoz (St.Mary's) was named Most Valuable Player of the tournament, in which the Cardinal earned an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

No team has ever been so happy to be 1-20. Skylar Diggins scored 24 points and second-seeded Notre Dame made up for 28 years of beatings at the hands of Tennessee, upsetting the top-seeded Lady Vols, 73-59, on Monday night to earn a spot in the Final Four. "We went into the locker room after the game and the first thing the team said was, '1 and 20! 1 and 20!'" coach Muffet McGraw said with a laugh. The Fighting Irish (30-7) came in 0-20 all-time against the Lady Vols.

Side with the family Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel Now that the nation has been released from Jim Harbaugh's evil clutches, another name that should be considered for Michigan and in lesser part, Stanford, should be former NFL coach Jon Gruden Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Buccaneers and coached in Oakland. And he has expressed interest in returning to college if the price is right. That probably would make him a more logical choice for the less-thrifty Wolverines.

Three games in the Wild West this weekend could factor prominently in finding an opponent for the Big Ten champion in this year's Rose Bowl. One of them even involves the Pac-10. Huh? Every time you turn around in college football people are making up rules as they go along. It used to be you set your clock to Pac-10/Big Ten in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, but some would say the new system is more like a broken clock — it's right twice a day. After 12 years of the Bowl Championship Series, most have become anesthetized to the fact the Rose Bowl must surrender one or both of its champions to the title game if they are ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final BCS standings.

You might find yourself sitting in your comfortable booth in the Stanford Grill's big, wide-open dining room saying things like, "You know what, these are really amazing ribs," or, "Actually, this steak is fantastic." All along, the food the Stanford Grill sends out is better than you anticipated, and the surprise factor has to do with how the restaurant sets expectations — not low, really, but as middle as middle can be. I think this is all deliberate. The Stanford Grill, which opened in early May, is the first foray into the upscale casual market by the Howard County-based Blue Ridge Restaurant Group, which operates six Copper Canyon Grill restaurants in Maryland and Florida.

When Lyndsey Munoz got the call to play for the North team in the Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic, it took a minute to sink in. North? Isn't her school, St. Mary's in Annapolis, pretty far south? "I was like, 'Cool,' when he told me I made the team. It didn't even register with me that everybody else was on the South team," Munoz said. Every other player from Maryland is on the South side for Saturday's fifth annual Classic at 5:30 p.m. at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium, but a glut of goalies shifted Munoz north.

For years, dining in Howard County has been characterized by family atmosphere, and if adults wanted a night on their own, they'd suddenly find themselves right at the top of the price ladder. There haven't been enough of those in-between places. Then came the opening a few months ago of affordable but chic Facci in Laurel, whose crazy and instant success suggested two things: that there had been a great desire for moderately priced, sit-down places that aren't part of a big chain, and that kids are fine going to places that aren't for kids.
