Stevie Wonder just called to say I love you, Baltimore, over the weekend. The musician ate dinner at The Land of Kush , a vegan restaurant in Seton Hill, on Saturday, according to owner Greg Brown. "His bodyguard introduced me to Stevie and said, 'Stevie Wonder would like to have dinner with you,'" Brown recalled. The star said he had recently started eating a vegetarian diet, Brown said. Wonder, who was with his niece and the bodyguard, ordered vegan barbecue rib tips, a rice and vegetable medley, split pea soup and candied yams, Brown said.

IN THE RELATIVELY short time (barely six years) I've worked as a music critic, I've had a few I-must-be-dreaming moments. There was that autumn afternoon in a New York City hotel bar when I laughed long and loud and did some serious dishing with the very real Chaka Khan. The summer before he died suddenly of a heart attack, Johnnie Taylor and I spent an entire afternoon together at his spacious Dallas home. The underrated Southern soul-blues legend played me demos for a new album. Later, we rode around the neighborhood in his shiny new SUV. But when I met Stevie Wonder about four years ago at a songwriters' award reception in Manhattan, I thought I was going to pass out. My face felt hot; my nerves started jumping.

Television personality and Hollywood business mogul Merv Griffin is 81 years old. He proves you don't have to be a teenager to have dreams. Griffin's dream started last year with a horse named Stevie Wonderboy. The 2-year-old champion was the early favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, until the dream went poof when he suffered a hairline fracture in his right front ankle. But the creator of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune - and a new reality show in production called Dream Horse Derby, which will show new owners and horses in the sport and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at racing - is once more dreaming about the first Saturday in May. The 3-year-old igniting the owner's vision is Cobalt Blue, a less-accomplished 3-year-old than Stevie Wonderboy, but one with good size and what Griffin calls a will to run. Cobalt Blue is to run today in the Grade II, $250,000 San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park, which will be shown live with the Grade III, $300,000 Rebel Stakes from 7 to 8 p.m. on ESPN.

Redbone, yellow, taffy, peanut butter, caramel, walnut, chocolate, coffee, black -- too black -- such are the colors of the rainbow in Stevie's universe. For Stevie's peers, it's color, boys and being cool that keep the Earth rotating on its axis.But in a telling scene in this first novel, Jean "Stevie" Stevenson and a group of girlfriends hold their adolescent arms out in a brown spectrum, quibbling over who is lighter or darker than the next. Stevie asks, "Why do we do this?"She's about 12 when she furrows her brow, sucks her teeth and pulls her very toasted arm away from the crowd.

Yay! It's Stevie Wonder night! I'm pretty stoked about this. The show starts with Stevie at the top of the stage in front of an elaborately fantastic backdrop. There are dancers, but we get A LOT of extended Stevie close-ups. I guess it's easier to do that when the singer can actually, you know, sing. Then Hunter Hayes comes out and I'm sure he's a nice kid and all, but next to Stevie Wonder ... eh. I mean, not a lot of people are going to come off well in that comparison.  I'd say even for a guy that was a Beatle and IS a knight had a rough go of it. Tom joins Stevie and Hunter on stage and Tom says, “We are so happy to have you here on Stevie Wonder night.

A little extra bit of Baltimore made its way onto "Dancing with the Stars" last night, thanks to Stevie Wonder. When the Motown recording legend appeared onstage to play a beautiful, pared-down version of his 1969 hit "My Cherie Amour," he accompanied himself on a harpejii -- a fretted string instrument invented just five years ago by a Baltimore County man. "I got a text message yesterday from [Wonder's] keyboard tech, saying it was going to be on there," said Tim Meeks, noting he had worked with Wonder over several days last year, teaching him how to play.

How did everyone fare over the weekend? Did Irene leave any Midnight Sun readers without electricity? Did it make you cancel any plans? In local music, the Silopanna Music Festiva l had to be canceled and Journey and Jimmy Buffett concerts both had to be rescheduled. At least, in Fells Point bars took the storm in stride . Did anyone head to Max's? This weekend, there won't be any hurricanes, tropical storms, and hopefully, no earthquakes, to intervene with your nightlife plans.

To those who spend their summers at a Baltimore-area pool, especially for anyone involved in competitive swimming, watching native son and daughter Michael Phelps and Katie Hoff dominate the field at the U.S. Olympic swim trials this week has been a thrill. Beijing may be a long way from local summer swim teams, with their 6-year-olds struggling to finish 25 meters of backstroke without veering off into the lane lines or preteen breaststroke heats so slow that timers may be tempted to trade their stopwatches for calendars, but the connection is there nonetheless.
