LAS VEGAS / / Are there any appealing alternatives to driving the notoriously congested Strip? Let's be creative: How about a mobility scooter? You know, those three-wheel electric numbers. In Las Vegas, they're not just for disabled people. At a maximum speed of 5 mph, they can cruise along the sidewalk -- passing the sweating, blister-footed masses -- into the casinos and right up to the tables or slots. Let's be practical: Walking is always an option, but in summer and early fall, when temperatures soar above 100 degrees, that can be daunting, if not downright deadly.

Now add Vespa, if somewhat peripherally, to the Gjerde restaurant empire.The story is convoluted: Stephen Ward, general manager of Spike and Charlie Gjerde's three restaurants, is opening his own place where Pimella's Market Cafe used to be at 1117-21 S. Charles St. in Federal Hill. Spike Gjerde is helping design the kitchen and is the inspiration for the food.

Motorcycles are about speed. Scooters are about style," said Mark Bobotek of Ellicott City. A quick cruise on the Internet proves Bobotek's statement true; scooter enthusiasts seem to have an accelerated sense of style - check out the Web site of the Baltimore Bombshells scooter club (www.actiongirlart.com) or try any one of the links it provides. Dorothy, you're not in an SUV anymore. Bobotek, 47, has definitely ramped up his scootering style this summer, embarking on a coast-to-coast-and-back scooter ride to benefit Canine Partners for Life, a nationwide nonprofit organization that trains service dogs and places them with people who have mobility impairments and seizure disorders.

Listen up, hip young Baltimoreans. Looking for a place with the pizazz of, say, a Spike & Charlie's but with modestly priced food? Well, look no further than the spunky new Vespa in Federal Hill.The Italian cafe and wine bar has connections with Spike & Charlie's through restaurateur Spike Gjerde, who's a partner, although Vespa is very much its own place. The dining room is striking, its high-tech minimalism softened by the mix of warm, earthy colors on the walls and touches like sueded banquettes and fresh flowers.

YORK, Pa. - When Clay Benton is not working to catch criminals, the Baltimore County police officer is climbing trees and digging holes to capture York County yellow jackets and hornets. But the part-time insect collector for Spring Mills-based Vespa Laboratories has found the drought that has plagued York County has cut the number of available bugs. Yellow jackets and hornets are carnivorous. The insects that make up their main food source feed on crops and plants, whose growth might have been hampered by lack of water, said Miles Guralnick, president of Vespa Laboratories.

The East Course at Baltimore Country Club, drier and faster than through the first two rounds, once again humbled the field assembled for the 93rd annual Middle Atlantic Golf Association Amateur championship. Only seven players broke 75, and the third-round average for 67 players was 78.38.That makes more plausible the fact Jeff Thomas, not out of first place through the first two rounds, could shoot 5-over-par 75 and still be in front. "No putts, no birdies," Thomas, of Plainfield, N.J., said of a round that left him at 218 heading into this morning's final 18 holes.

When it opened six years ago, Vespa Cafe and Wine Bar was just slightly ahead of its time. It was the first of a series of smart, casual eating places where a glass of wine was every bit as important as the good food -- places like Petit Louis Bistro, Tapas Teatro, Mezze and Pazo. Each of these succeeds because it has its own distinct identity. Vespa is casual Italian, and you are not going to find chef Michael Russell sneaking a tortilla chip or a wasabi accent into the food just because it's trendy.

We are all becoming a bunch of pinkos. The most important capitalist in the world, Donald Trump, sports a pink necktie and world leaders (who know a power tie when they see one) immediately follow suit. Designer runways -- feeling all ladylike and generally femmed-up -- are presenting pretty in pink as a wardrobe must-have for spring / summer. Victoria's Secret unveiled underwear from a new collection called ... wait for it ... Pink. Even stylish men are into haute pink. Johnny Knoxville was pimpin' pink while promoting the movie Walking Tall, and Rod Stewart honed the hue into a snazzy blazer while watching the recent Los Angeles fashion shows.

ALEX TASI IS SO taken with motor scooters that he has them hanging from his ceiling. It 's not clear how many he owns. He lists four scooters of various vintages that are operational. And a motorcycle, a beefy 1984 BMW, also in use. Then there are the carcasses of five scooters overhead in his workshop, Maritime Plastics, on Second Street in Annapolis. Tasi is a very serious hobbyist. He is not alone. Annapolis pals Jody Danek, Tom Karppi and Francis Geraci own at least two Vespas each.

In a Mount Vernon back street, signs of a curious revival are evident. Twenty vintage Italian motor scooters are neatly aligned in a row. Their riders, standing quietly nearby, have left no detail to chance in their own appearance. Hair is shaped in a sober blunt cut, bangs low to the eye, reminiscent of the early Beatles. Dark sunglasses mask their eyes. They sport short, boxy jackets. Expressions are solemn. Their stance is as tailored as their form -- with feet turned out and hands held behind their backs.
