Once again Caribbean cuisine has come to the Indian Cultural Center on Mulberry Street. The Little Carib Cafe opened in June with such island delicacies as roti and jerk chicken wings.The new restaurant -- which is owned by Ann McNish and her brother Ken Coombs, both born in Trinidad -- has no relationship to the former restaurant at that site that served Jamaican and vegetarian food and closed nearly a year ago.But the feeling of being on vacation is the same. Steel band music plays in the background and paintings from Trinidad line the walls.

LAS VEGAS -- Boxer Fernando Vargas' workouts have been open this week. Those of his opponent, Felix Trinidad, have not. Vargas, a young Mexican-American, is impetuous, bombastic and outspoken. Trinidad, five years older, is more subdued and soft-spoken. Tonight, at the Mandalay Bay, however, the 154-pound fighters will be speaking the same language as they try to knock each other out. Trinidad (38-0, 31 knockouts), a two-fisted puncher with a suspect chin, defends his World Boxing Association super welterweight title against Vargas (20-0, 18)

NEW YORK - Throughout most of his professional boxing career, Bernard "The Executioner" Hopkins has had a reputation for his vocal and mental intimidation of opponents. Felix "Tito" Trinidad, his rival in tonight's middleweight unification bout at Madison Square Garden, has a reputation for maintaining a quiet poise and silencing talkative rivals with his two-fisted punching prowess. Has Hopkins, considered an old war horse at 36, run out of tricks, or will his durability and resourcefulness be enough to make boxing history?

A change of heart by International Boxing Federation welterweight champion Felix Trinidad has given Baltimore's Vincent Pettway an opportunity to win a second world title in Mexico City on March 7.In the past year, the unbeaten Trinidad (32-0, 28 KOs) said he was having problems making the 147-pound limit and was considering challenging for the junior middleweight crown.The Puerto Rican native was ranked No. 1 by the World Boxing Council in the 154-pound class after stopping Troy Waters in the first round of a title qualifier at Madison Square Garden four months ago.This put Trinidad in position to challenge Keith Mullings, who scored a stunning knockout over WBC champion Terry Norris on Dec. 6. But last week in Florida, Trinidad advised his promoter, Don King, and IBF president Bob Lee that he would prefer to defend his welterweight crown for the 12th time since dethroning Maurice Blocker four years ago."

Salome Semper stood in the drizzle on McCulloh Street outside Druid Hill Park with a smattering of parade spectators, listening to the sounds of steel drum bands playing in the distance. They could hear something like a parade way off toward Druid Park Drive, but still there was no sign of the costumed marchers or floats. Many had waited at least two hours amid spurts of heavy rain for the parade to wend its way from Park Heights to Druid Hill to kick off Baltimore's annual Caribbean Carnival Festival, in its 29th year this weekend.

My 401(k) is sputtering. My neighborhood firehouse is threatened with cutbacks. Yet I feel flush. That is because I am awash in Angostura bitters. I had not one, not two, but three bottles of Angostura aromatic bitters, a concoction made from a secret combination of herbs, alcohol, gentian and vegetable flavorings. Invented as a stomach tonic by a German doctor in Angostura, Venezuela, in 1824, this brand of bitters has been touted as a remedy for everything from malaise to hiccups.

BEIJING - Usain Bolt isn't among the many athletes who listen to music with headphones before they compete. His coach, Glen Mills, doesn't allow it, worrying it will interfere with Bolt's concentration. But that didn't stop Bolt from doing a little dancing before he stepped into the blocks last night at the Olympics, before the crowd of 91,000 at the Bird's Nest went quiet for the start of the men's 100-meter final. Bolt won the 100 meters in a time, 9.69 seconds, that broke his own 11-week-old world record of 9.72.

It was love at first sound. About 25 years ago, Kevin Martin, then a guitar-happy high school freshman, walked into Ocean Pines Yacht Club with his parents and had what one might call an aural epiphany. A couple of steel drummers were playing Caribbean music, and he'd never heard anything so sweet; like church bells in a giddy mood, like diamonds raining on a tin roof. "The steel drum is a drum that plays melody. That's what's so weird about it," says Martin. "The closest thing to it is the talking drum from Africa."

Trinidad (39-0, 32 knockouts) may not have knocked the chip off Vargas' shoulders, but he did nearly knock his block off in lifting the 22-year-old's junior middleweight title with a 12th-round knockout before a screaming capacity crowd of 12,000 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

NEW YORK - Bernard Hopkins said he would break the back of the boxing industry with a victory over Felix Trinidad last night at Madison Square Garden, promising to "seek and destroy" the unbeaten Puerto Rican fighter who stood between him and boxing history. And when it was over, Hopkins was true to his word. The end came in the 12th and final round when Hopkins, 36, landed a tremendous right to the head that sent Trinidad reeling backward and to the canvas. The 28-year-old fighter struggled up at about 9, and referee Steve Smoger looked at him. Trinidad's father, who is also his trainer, then climbed into the ring to signal that his son was beaten at the 1:22 mark.
