In "The Wire,"Lester Freamon famously said, "You follow drugs, you get drug addicts and drug dealers. But you start to follow the money, and you don't know where the [bleep] it's gonna take you. " Well, it's apparently taking folks to Martha's Vineyard for a chichi Obama campaign fundraiser. To raise some cheddar for Obama, National Journal reports via the Sunlight Foundation's Party Time blog that his campaign is throwing a little street party, Baltimore-style. Except that it's on the beach, in one of the country's most elite zip codes and at the private home of not junkies or cops or even dock workers -- but socialites.

It's a turnaround tale that some city dwellers found unlikely, at least in the beginning. West Street in downtown Annapolis, sometimes seen as a poor stepsister to the town's Main Street, has lately looked like Cinderella, spurring investor optimism and inspiring a beautification scheme. The latest change: a hip-looking shopping village that's sprung up, using the facades or structures of five blighted houses that line the stretch next to the new Knighton parking garage. A glass tower connects the sections that were separated because of decay.

Preseason threats by city officials that they would crack down on large-scale football tailgate parties in neighborhoods outside PSINet Stadium didn't dampen enthusiastic parties before and after the Ravens' home-opening win yesterday. The tailgating went on in the face of pending appeals and permit applications. It went on in places that had already been fined during preseason games. In fact, by game time yesterday, overseers of some southern Baltimore gathering spots said the most they had seen of city zoning inspectors were their cars pulling up and pausing - before riding away.

The children wore their Easter finery with touches of turquoise cotton candy. The adults, many of whom have attended the outdoor party since they were tots, carried cameras and left lipstick prints on people they hadn't seen all winter. Families waited in line for kiddie and pony rides.It wouldn't have been Easter without the 35th annual Easter Sunday street festival sponsored by the 4100 Club for its Brooklyn Park neighborhood. Generations jammed the parking lot, Edison Street was blocked off for the event, and every parking space for blocks around was taken.

The Towsontown Spring Festival - once a small college art exhibit on a single street, now a major fair that draws 200,000 or more - promises even more attractions this year, its organizers say. This weekend, the festival honors area men and women in the armed forces. Saturday's opening ceremonies feature a U.S. Air Force flyover, a bagpipe procession and a Color Guard salute. In the NASCAR area, an exhibit introduced last year, 15 cars from drivers Casey Mears and Maryland native Donnie Neuenberger will be showcased along with others from Dover Brooks Hotel & Casino and Huff Tire Co. at the corner of Washington and Allegheny avenues.

Hampden is more than just a Baltimore neighborhood. With its old corner shops and quiet streets, the village over the years has retained the feeling of a small Midwestern town. It's a funky part of the city where plastic pink flamingos take up proud yet peaceful residence in the tiny yards of blue-collar workers, punks and artsy hipsters alike. So it's only fitting that the unique urban hamlet would hold a festival that's equally complex and diverse. Saturday's HampdenFest is a street party that's centered on and around 36th Street, widely known as The Avenue.

Long before dawn Sunday morning, some Annapolitans will probably start assembling on State Circle to wait patiently in the moonlight - early birds hoping to be first in line for a once-a-year art phenomenon. Some will bring blankets, others will sit on lawn chairs and play Monopoly to pass the time - before the doors to artist Nancy Hammond's State Circle gallery open at 10 a.m. and they spill inside to purchase her annual poster featuring some aspect of their hometown. What's unique about the sale is that it always takes place on Hammond's birthday (her 60th this year)
