Last fall, Timonium - home to the state fair and a head-spinning number of chain businesses - welcomed a city favorite, Ryleigh's Oyster. Since then, the Baltimore County version (it calls itself Ryleigh's Oyster Hunt Valley) of the Federal Hill staple has seen steady crowds regularly fill its tidy, well-designed space. On a recent Friday evening, with the location's one-year anniversary weeks away, Ryleigh's hummed along at an appropriately brisk pace. It was the end of the workweek for many in the area, and both bar areas (one near the front entrance and another in the back)

As the school year ends, teachers reflect, reminiscing about their favorite students, reveling in their successes. Nostalgia lingers as books are packed, lessons stored, and students' notes of appreciation are scanned and filed on a flash drive as "artifacts" - an outcome of the Common Core. While this year brought complaints from colleagues over everything from teacher accountability to lavatory access during school reconstruction, I realize my year lacked something much more poignant than political policy or bladder relief: chalk.

When Nick Schauman was a toddler, his grandfather, Larry Hunton, taught him how to eat raw oysters. Hunton let his grandson tag along on trips to Lexington Market, where the duo would sit at the raw bar (Schauman sat on top of it) and slurp down oysters "faster than the man could shuck them. " Back then, ordering a dozen oysters simply meant asking for "oysters. " Forty years later, at oyster bars and fishmongers across the region, "boutique" oysters harvested from oyster farms - many of them local - are the norm.

Commentator Peter Morici thinks Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is out of touch with inflation and what ought to be done about it (" Yellen: It's later than you think May 27). He himself, however, seems a bit out of touch with reality when he tosses off a comment like "milk [is] expensive and steak [is] a special occasion luxury rather than a weekly staple on the family menu. " I don't know about his weekly staples, but I indulge in steak only about twice a year. Maybe Mr. Morici should investigate what families - middle-class or otherwise - actually do call "staples" before he makes such sweeping statements.

The good bar owners are keenly aware of this and can anticipate the right time to make changes that will invigorate an establishment without offending loyal patrons. In 2009, 15 years after it opened, Mount Vernon's City Cafe underwent a sleek renovation that brought an attractive and modern aesthetic with it. Co-owners Bruce Bodie and Gino Cardinale were happy with the new look, but not content, as proven by the December unveiling of City Bar at City Cafe, another renovation that alters the cafe's identity without overhauling it. (Case-in-point: City Cafe has rededicated itself to coffee and espresso, says Cardinale.

" While the aspect of fresh and local food is an attraction, the real selling point for him is convenience.
