My tablemates at Tark's Grill had never dined there before, so I gave them a brief history lesson. I told them about Harvey's, the restaurant that flourished in this Green Spring Station location for about 20 years, from the early 1980s to 2000, and about the string of ambitious restaurants that moved into the space after Harvey's closed. None of them lasted long, and the location began to feel jinxed. Then Tark's opened in 2008, and all was right again. Now, as then, the secret to the success of Tark's was a simple formula.

Heavy Seas will have its name in lights at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, the casino under construction on Russell Street. On Friday, Horseshoe announced that a Heavy Seas tavern will be among five Maryland-based vendors in its first-floor casual-dining area, which it's calling the Baltimore Marketplace. The casino said the other Baltimore Marketplace vendors would include Lenny's Deli, which has locations in Harborplace, on Lombard Street and in Owings Mills; the Greenspring Station restaurant Tark's Grill , which will be represented at the casino by a casual bistro named Tark's at the 'Shoe; the Towson-based pizza-by-the-slice chain Mamma Ilardo's , which will introduce a new personal-size pizza concept named Pie-Zetta; and the Mallow Bar , a "crispy treat dessert cafe" specializing in homemade marshmallow treats.

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Imagine the last two dinosaurs, wondering what the heck went wrong, and that may help capture the moment for you.In this case, it was Tark and Lefty, in a last-chance meeting of your basic college basketball anachronisms. They don't make 'em like that anymore, and it's just as well, if it's ethics that turn you on. If it's colorful characters, then that's a different story.If you hadn't heard, it's Tark's farewell tour -- he finally got the boot -- and the Runnin' Rebels (was there ever a team more aptly named?

Food **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Service ***1/2 (3 1/2 stars) Atmosphere *** (3 stars) Some locations are doomed, as restaurant after restaurant tries and fails to make a go of it there. The space at Green Spring Station, I'm happy to say, turns out not to be one of those after all. Of course, it's early days yet, but the new Tark's Grill seems to be making customers happy. The energy is certainly there. As we approached the entrance on a recent weeknight, the noise from the crowded bar was audible from across the courtyard.

Tark's Grill (Green Spring Station in Lutherville, 410-583-8275) is now open in the space where Longo's and a number of restaurants have been. Just the fact that it opened after extensive renovations exactly on schedule gives me hope for its success. It doesn't hurt that the general manager is Mark Hofmann, something of a celebrity restaurateur around here, and he'll be working closely with the kitchen. The renovated space, operating partner Bill Shriver says, is a blend of traditional and contemporary, done in black, deep red and white.

INDIANAPOLIS -- I'm rooting hard for UNLV this weekend. Not because I love the team -- although I do enjoy watching those guys play -- but because it will serve the folks who run college basketball right.Every time UNLV wins, it merely emphasizes everything that is wrong with the game.Every time the Shark wins, it speaks volumes about how corruption pays and how no one who matters -- no one -- is even remotely committed to cleaning up the sport.I love it every time somebody talks about UNLV's NCAA semifinal game today against Duke as the second act of a morality play.

Patrons at Tark's Grill were eating in the dining room and drinking at the bar when the ferocious storm struck Friday night and the Brooklandville restaurant went dark. The Green Spring Station establishment was among many Baltimore-area eateries and grocery stores that not only lost prime weekend business but also merchandise — food that went bad in the heat. Tark's reopened Monday with a limited menu and estimated losses of at least $25,000, owner Bill Shriver said. "We had no ice and nowhere to get ice — try opening a restaurant with no ice," Shriver said.

Some of the statements CBS hoops commentator Billy Packer makes might be considered humorous in a warped sort of way if it wasn't for the fact he's usually serious.Packer, avowed defender and apologist for college basketball coaches no matter what the circumstances, thinks Villanova should hire Jerry Tarkanian to coach the Wildcats now that they've lost coach Rollie Massimino to UNLV. That thud you just heard is several Villanova priests hitting the floor in a dead faint.Making matters worse, fellow commentator Dick Vitale thinks the Packer brainstorm is a good idea while pointing out Massimino is the "perfect choice" for UNLV since he has a near-perfect graduation rate of players.

It took him 13 years, but Nevada-Las Vegas basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian finally won one from the NCAA. As a result, his Rebels are now eligible to defend the national title they so impressively won last April.That news came in a report from the NCAA Committee on Infractions, which just last July -- acting on a case that stretched back to 1977 -- prohibited Vegas from postseason play in 1991. In yesterday's landmark reversal, it agreed to permit UNLV to play in next spring's tourney if the school accepted one of two alternative penalties.

CHICAGO -- The trip for which he was packing, the one to Fresno State for a game with the Bulldogs today, long had been advertised as the last he would take as the coach of Nevada-Las Vegas. But now the circumstances were altered considerably, and Jerry Tarkanian once more was engaged in battle.This one seeks to keep him on the job for another season, to rescind the agreement he signed last June that obliges him to step down at this season's end.This battle arose after reports alleged the FBI was looking into possible point shaving by some of last year's Rebels; already his attorney had delivered a letter to UNLV President Robert Maxson declaring Tarkanian's intentions.
