'Tis holiday season in Baltimore's most holiday-happy neighborhood! Walking the Avenue (West 36th Street) at this time of year is especially magical. Sidewalks are filled with shoppers who appreciate and value small, locally-owned businesses. Light poles and storefronts are decorated with lights, shiny bulbs and tinsel. Is there really any place better to be than Hampden? Careful how you answer that, because I am fully prepared to debate anyone who answers that question "yes. " The most immediate excuse to come to Hampden is for the 41st Annual Mayor's Christmas Parade, Sunday, Dec. 8 at 1 p.m..

Terry Sullivan sometimes finds himself absentmindedly swirling a glass of juice or water as if it were a glass of fine wine when dining with friends or family members. "That's when you know you can't turn it off," he said, referring to his passion for wine. But that passion - which culminates when a taster swirls the wine to release its aroma and flavor - has served him and his wife, Kathy, well. The retired Howard County public school educators have visited 1,000 wineries around the world and are in the midst of writing their third book together.

There are some minimal components needed to hold a successful wine tasting. First, of course, there's the wine - you'll need lots of that. And it helps to have a place for people to gather - an apartment, home or, better still, a rustic winery. And an enthusiastic crowd certainly never hurts. But a new world syrah/shiraz tasting earlier this month had none of these things - at least not in the traditional sense - but by all accounts the event was a resounding success. Edward loved the dark berry and rich chocolate notes of the Thorn Clark Shotfire Shiraz.

Two days before the big wine-tasting, Terry Theise called with important advice: Go out and buy some Sensodyne toothpaste and start preparing your teeth to play with pain.He should know.Mr. Theise is the country's leading importer of German wine -- only 39 years old, he has tasted his way up the Mosel River and down the Rhine dozens of times.He loves it. German wine is his passion. But even he will admit that tasting 220 young, highly acidic German wines over a two-day period would be a form of torture -- albeit a most exquisite one. Mr. Theise says that before a big round of wine-tasting he starts using the desensitizing toothpaste five days in advance.
