Let's face it -- you need more dessert cocktails in your life. Generally underrepresented in bars and restaurants, these post-meal libations always aim to please the palate with sweetness and strength. They are long thought to aid in digestion and further throw your stuffed face into a food coma. So why not, while you're at it, combine the classic taste of a root beer float with some booze? Locust Point newcomer Sweet Caroline's (not associated with Neil Diamond) has done such a thing and the results are pretty devilish.

Sweet Caroline's opened last week in the Locust Point space that was formerly, and memorably, Pazza Luna. The owners are a husband and wife team, John "Jay" Ferrari and Ashley Fowler, who previously ran the Bamboo Restaurant and Tiki Bar in Ocean City. The thing to know about Sweet Caroline's is that it's not Pazza Luna, which ran under different owners and operators from 1999 to the spring of 2011. The original edition of Pazza Luna, which featured a shrine to Frank Sinatra, was very much the personal vision of Kim Acton.

"Downtown restaurant" and "kid-friendly" are not two concepts that naturally go together. In most cases, they shouldn't go together. But at Sweet Caroline's, they do. The Locust Point restaurant, which opened in August in the former home of Pazza Luna, caters to both families and kid-free adults looking for a good place for dinner and drinks by keeping the menu and decor simple and the service friendly. For the most part, that approach works. Occasionally, though, Sweet Caroline's food seems a little too basic for its downtown location.

I am off for a few days to deal with some minor medical stuff, and I did not intend to write any reviews, believe me. But I sat down last night to watch one segment of the preview DVD forĀ  "Kennedy Center Honors," and I got up some two hours later feeling like I had been on a wild, joyous, pop culture rollercoaster ride. And I wanted to at least give readers of this a blog a heads-up to catch this brilliant production at 9 tonight on CBS (WJZ-Channel 13). As usually happens, and as I annually forget, the segments on the honorees that I don't care so much about are the ones that blow me away -- and make me want to run out and buy their DVD or get a Netflix of one of their greatest movies.

For people who think there's no cultural divide in this country, consider the treatment of two women much in the news in 2008. The first is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. A woman from humble roots and with a blue-collar life story, she worked with her steelworker and professional-fisherman husband to provide a life for their large family. She got involved in the PTA. She became mayor of her small town, then rose, by dint of her dedication and almost naive fearlessness, to the job of governor.

The owners of Barrett's Grill at the Hunt Valley Towne Centre will open a restaurant in the Glyndon location that was the site of Mia Carolina until earlier this year. The new restaurant will be called Glyndon Grill , according to Michael Sipes, who co-owns both Barrett's Grill and the new restaurant with John Barrett. Glyndon Grill will operate with a different menu and chef than Barrett's but will also focus on in-house, made-from-scratch preparations, said Sipes, who added that Glyndon Grill will also likely be more casual than Barrett's Grill, which he and Barrett have owned since 2011.

Article, Page 2C New York Yankees "God Bless America" They went the patriotic route during the seventh inning after Sept. 11 and have no intention of stopping. That bumped "Cotton Eyed Joe" from the seventh to eighth inning. However, the Yanks are best known for cranking up Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" after every home game. They sometimes play Liza Minnelli's version, but there's no comparison. It's like sending Barbra Streisand up to pinch hit for Babe Ruth. Baltimore Orioles "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" Dee Belanger, wife of glory-days shortstop Mark Belanger, knew John Denver.

No one is going to write a Broadway musical titled "Damn Ravens!" Something about the sport of baseball lends itself to song. Strains of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" were regularly echoing in parks as early as 1910. The up-down ritual of the seventh-inning stretch, an interlude seemingly tailor-made for sing-alongs, was cemented in fans' psyches by the Roaring Twenties. Today, in this era of Jumbotron and MTV, ballparks rock from batting practice till final out. Spectators abhor a vacuum - and silence.

Henry Michael Cedrone, a retired machinist and musician who had an "uncanny ability" to keep people on the dance floor, died of respiratory failure Sept. 18 at St. Joseph Medical Center. He was 89 and lived in Lutherville. Born in Baltimore, he was raised on Granby Street in what was an Italian-Jewish immigrant neighborhood near the Shot Tower and Little Italy. As a child he heard his father playing the accordion with other neighbors who played guitar, tambourine and piano. He had an ear for music and picked up the instruments on his own. He was also a good singer.
