A cheerful young lady called and said: "Hi, this is the Hard Rock Cafe. We just read your column, so we're inviting you to come over and try our veggie burger."She was referring to the column I wrote heaping disgust and ridicule on the anti-beef fanatics who are trying to bully McDonald's into adding a vegetable burger to their menu.I asked the caller if the Hard Rock Cafe is the place where they blast hard rock music."Yes, have you been here?"No, and I must decline your invitation.I can't enjoy a meal while my eardrums are vibrating violently.

It worked last time. The Washington-based Z-Burger chain promised Ravens fans free hamburgers if Baltimore beat Denver last week. The Ravens did, and fans flocked to the White Marsh location to claim their free burgers. Technically, fans were supposed to say the secret password - "Super Bowl" - to qualify for a free burger, but the staff was tipping off the unaware. • A taste of victory with free burgers offered after Ravens win If the Ravens beat the Patriots in the AFC championship game on Sunday, Z-Burger says, fans will get free burgers on Monday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The offer is good at the White Marsh location only.

From the outside, One World Cafe looks like it could be a small coffee joint housed in a one-story addition to a much taller brick building on the cusp of the Johns Hopkins' Homewood campus. In fact, if you walk past the few tables up front and the full service bar, you'll find it has a largish dining room with seating to accommodate, by my rough guesstimate, easily 40 to 50 diners. Its interior is not the only way the cafe offers more than meets the eye. 12:58 We entered very much looking forward to eating in a reliably vegetarian restaurant and specifically not seeking vegetarian renditions of meat-centric recipes — except for a veggie burger.

To get a free hamburger, cheeseburger, turkey burger, bacon burger or veggie burger at Z-Burger in White Marsh, all a customer had to say was "Super Bowl. " And that's clearly where the Ravens are headed, according to fans celebrating at the burger restaurant Sunday, especially after Saturday's against-all-odds defeat of the Denver Broncos. "We are going all the way," said Darlene Burns of Middle River, dressed in a purple shirt that read "Let's Go All the Way," as she sat down to lunch with her husband, Allen, who wore a Ray Rice jersey.

I am writing in response to Eric Lee's op-ed piece of Oct.2 opposing Question 6, the Marriage Equality Act ("Opposing gay marriage: It's not about hate"). Like many people I know, I will be voting for Question 6. I am a heterosexual woman who has been married to the same husband for 51 years. At the Episcopal church of which I am an active member, there are many same-sex couples in long-term committed relationships who embody the same vows I took so many years ago: to love and to cherish in sickness and health, for richer or poorer, and to be faithful until death.

Canton Square has a new drinking establishment, but its drinks aren't the kind more commonly associated with the area. Juice Phoria offers a healthful alternative - and perhaps, in some cases, antidote - to the alcoholic beverages served at its neighbor establishments. We're talkin' freshly squeezed fruit and veggie juice drinks like carrot/apple, apple/beet/ginger, carrot/parsley/celery/spinach and orange/grapefruit. You can also order fruit smoothies. The drinks all run in the $4.50 to $6.50 range, and can go higher in price if you add extra ingredients like bee pollen or acai.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Carhops have hippity-hopped from the '50s to the '90s, and this time their arms are laden with veggie burgers and low-fat yogurt shakes.It's nostalgia for the cholesterol conscious, and it's happening at Mel's on Lombard Street. Every Tuesday through the summer, the restaurant is bringing back carhop service.Flash your headlights for service, said the announcement. It has been 40 years since this sort of thing constituted big-time pop culture, so maybe they forgot that at the lunch hour the sun is shining and it's hard to see flashing headlights.

Until recently, the very thought of "imitation" burgers would have had all but the brown-rice-and-tofu crowd hacking like a cat with a hairball. Soybeans? Gack! Tempeh? FFfffttt!Well, surprise. ... Many of today's "veggie" burgers are anything but the dreaded sawdust and seaweed -- and an informal Sun taste test proved it. (See results below.)They're full of good things like adzuki beans and shiitake mushrooms, green pepper and mozzarella cheese, wheat berries and rolled oats. Even soy protein has come of age, with better texture and more taste.
