Show looks at our sense of place and belonging (and not) BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM Bob Cullen is a writer. He covered the fall of the Soviet Union for Newsweek and the New Yorker. He covered the diplomatic beat for the Associated Press. He is the author of 16 books, including five novels featuring a reporter stationed in the Soviet Union who won’t back down from a story no matter what and no matter who is shooting at him. The Soviets did not normally issue visas for photographers, pesky creatures who poke their lenses where authoritarian governments think they don’t belong. So when Newsweek posted Cullen to Moscow, they “gave me a camera and a half-hour lesson and said ‘you’re going to need to do this,’” he recalled. He caught the bug. He shot hundreds of photos in Moscow—funerals in Red Square, parades, street scenes, all kinds of things. When he got back from three years in the crumbling Soviet Union, he kept shooting. “The more I do it the more I enjoy it. It is very expressive to me,” he says. Tonight is the first night of a show of Cullen’s photographs at Five Points Tavern, 1120 E. Fort Ave. in Locust Point. The show, called “Addresses,” features ten Baltimore buildings in neighborhoods as different as Guilford and The Block. In front of the building is someone you wouldn’t expect to see there. For instance, why is there a barefooted surgeon lounging in front of a

Cullen recruited friends and friendsof-friends as models, then placed them in unexpected situations and places. “I wanted a juxtaposition of expectations and environment,” he said. Photo courtesy Bob Cullen

Science Center offers a journey to the center of the bug world BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER


It’s time to embrace the bugs. No, not stinkbugs and bedbugs. Cute, friendly bugs. Like Harry, a Chinese praying mantis who stands ready to take kids and their families on an educational journey through the insect habitats via the Maryland Science Center. (It’s a journey sponsored by a pest control company, too, but that’s a

point for another time). “Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World!” opens this Saturday, Feb. 4, and runs through through the end of April. The exhibit divvies up the world into multiple zones (including water, forest, meadow, cropland and house) to see how insects impact their surroundings, the environment and ultimately human lives. And since this is a kid-oriented exhibit, Ask about our Gold Buying Parties!

Notice of zoning hearing change

Sound off on tax proposal


Gov. Martin J. O’Malley is proposing that the six percent state sales tax apply to gasoline sales at your local ďŹ lling station. The tax would be imposed instead of the 15-cent gasoline tax proposed by a blue ribbon transportation commission last year. Some highlights: • The sales tax would be phased in over three years, two percent at a time. • The tax would be collected on the retail price of the gasoline minus any state and federal gasoline taxes already reected in the price. Currently the state imposes a 23.5-cent tax and the federal government collects 18.4 cents a gallon. • The sales tax would not be applied to home heating oil. • The cash collected, estimated at $613 million per year when the tax is fully imposed, would be used for transportation projects and maintenance of bridges and roads. Maryland State Senate President Thomas V. “Mikeâ€? Miller calls it “a tough sell.â€? What do you think? We’ll print some of the printable comments next week. —Jacqueline Watts, editor

Playbook Bar hearing rescheduled to evening, Feb. 21 The Baltimore City Municipal Zoning and Appeals Board has rescheduled its hearing concerning the Play Book Sports Bar, located in the 5300 block of German Hill Road. The hearing will take place during the 5 p.m. docket on Tuesday, Feb. 21. The location will be the Board of Estimates Room, no. 215, in the City Hall building, 100 N. Holliday Street. The hearing was previously scheduled for Feb. 7, but was changed to accommodate the number of community members who wanted to be present for the hearing. According to Celestine “Babe� Grabowski of the Graceland Park Improvement Association, the bar would like to be able to have live music and dancing (it presently has entertainment provided by a D.J., and many community residents oppose the change, Grabowski says). Further information regarding the hearing, and the issue it pertains to, will be covered as the hearing nears.

Congratulations to Carol Wilson of Canton, who is the winner of the Baltimore Guide’s Super Bowl contest. Grand prize was a 42-inch Sharp flatscreen TV. Staffers sorted through hundreds of entries, and entries with the correct number of footballs (18) in the January 18 Guide were entered into a drawing. Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to all the people who entered!

Essex Pawn Star of the Week

I chose to sell my gold at Essex Pawn because they always give me top dollar for my gold and they are very nice. I like to buy from Essex Pawn because I always get a good deal. From a great customer.

BY JACQUELINE WATTS EDITOR@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM It had been years since either of us walked into Regi’s, the wonderful restaurant that anchors Federal Hill’s Restaurant Row. Our next visit won’t take as long, because Regi’s is a place with fine food, friendly, efficient and unobtrusive service, and the prices aren’t that bad either. What more is there to ask for? Regi’s was a revelation when it opened in 1978, because Baltimore had the Prime Rib and Marconi’s, and it had carryouts and burger joints, and there was practically nothing in-between. Regi’s immediately became wildly popular for its crab cakes. The Big Thing then was nouvelle cuisine, and Regi’s served up some remarkable chicken, fish and lamb chops along with the crab cakes, but the real revelation back then was the sides, which were delicious all by themselves. People flocked to the place, and they haven’t stopped. On a recent sleepy Thursday lunchtime with very few people on the street, Regi’s was hopping, with many hardy souls sitting on the sidewalk patio, which is enclosed for the winter. We opted for one of the many small, inviting dining rooms. The restaurant is carved out of four rowhouses, and instead of one large dining room, there are several small ones. It’s comfy and elegant without being intimidating. Regi’s has the dishes you would expect on the menu, but the kitchen dishes them up in unexpected ways. We tried the Buffalo Oysters for a starter, six plump breaded, fried oysters served with the requisite hot sauce and a big mound of blue cheese dressing. We ate the fresh greens garnish so we could finish the rest of the dressing. Delightful. After such a good start, who could resist something called a garbage salad? It’s Regi’s version of a cobb salad, with a little bit of everything served over a garden salad. The garbage salad has shrimp and salami, olives and artichokes with great big spicy pepperoncinis arranged artistically over a salad of romaine. Even the meatloaf sandwich is different—the baked meatloaf is slathered with

barbecue sauce, grilled and served with crispy fried onion slivers on Texas toast. There is a side of Regi fries, which are fresh and twice-fried to achieve that crisp exterior and soft interior. Serving fresh foods carefully prepared is a way of showing respect for the customer, and Regi’s is very respectful indeed. Our tab for an excellent lunch came to $44.30 including tax but not the tip. Regi’s, 1002 Light St. (410-539-7344), is open daily for lunch and dinner and serves a legendary Sunday brunch.

Wedding Color Cues




By Tresa Erickson You recently got engaged, and the excitement is brewing. You can't wait to start the wedding planning. One of the first decisions you'll face is selecting a color palette. There are so many shades to choose from. How do you decide? While some brides have no trouble selecting a color palette, others struggle with it. The good news is that there are many facets from which you may take your color cues, starting with your color faves. What colors are you drawn to? Gold? Orange? Red? If you love red and can't picture yourself getting married without it, then you have already won half the battle. All you need to do now is select one or two more colors, and you will have your palette. If the red is rather intense, you might opt for some neutrals like white, silver, black or gray. Don't have a favorite color? No problem. Look to your choices in apparel for your color cues. Start shopping for bridesmaid dresses, and once you select a style and color, take your cues from it. If the dresses are purple, you'll want to make sure you work in some shade of

purple into your palette. The same goes with the tuxes. If the groom has chosen gray tuxes, then you'll want to make sure gray is either part of your palette or goes well with it. Flowers also provide important color cues. What flowers are in season and what are you hoping to incorporate into your wedding? If you have your eye on a lot of pale pink blooms, then you will definitely want to work that color into your palette, or at the very least, choose a complementary palette. Location and season can also provide color cues. Check out the venues you have selected for the ceremony and the reception. Do any of the colors there appeal to you? If you are getting married in a gazebo surrounded by yellow tulips, perhaps a cream palette with accents of maize and gold would work well. Season can also make a difference. Winter colors differ dramatically from summer colors. Maroon and silver might serve a November wedding well, but not a May wedding. Still having trouble selecting a color palette? Consider current trends. A couple rounds of shopping should clue

friend who just got married. Think about all of the items you have selected thus far from the wedding dress to the wedding cake. If you've got a lot of ivory and cream going on, you might want to select a color that pops. Keep in mind that just because you select a color palette early on doesn't mean it will work. Be willing to make some changes the deeper you get into the planning. That pale green you chose for your accent color might turn into forest green once you select the invitations. Light green lettering doesn't show up nearly as well on crisp, white paper as dark green does. Whether you choose the color palette or let it choose you, be open to change. You never know. That burgundy you're hoping for might serve your April wedding better as fuschia.

Wedding Who Will Stand Up For Me?



By Ann Bare "Oh dear," you think to yourself. "My sister gets cranky so easily. My best friend, although I love her dearly, is unpredictable and undependable. I have some friends from school, but we rarely talk and really only keep in touch through Facebook. My coworkers are becoming friendlier, but we are not what I would call friends yet. I'm getting married in six months and I want to have a stress-free wedding. Whom do I choose to be in my wedding party?" It's not always possible to select the "perfect" attendants. Personalities, traditions, expectations and cultural mores can influence a bride's choice of her maid or matron of honor and her bridesmaids. There are those who expect to be asked to be in your wedding; after all, you were in theirs. Your sisters and closest cousins would be natural choices-especially to Mom and sweet Auntie. Your best friend and you pinky-swore years ago that you would be at each other's side, but now

her life decisions are not making her a suitable choice. The hard-to-decide task just got more difficult. So whose wedding is it anyway? You want to look back on this day and have pleasant memories so make your decisions accordingly. What do you want to remember? Pasted smiles on an array of size 3 gals and tuxedoed handsome men flanking a radiant couple? The hope of having your wedding photo featured in the hometown paper's next bridal insert? Beautifully coiffed hairstyles and tiny ankles beneath tea-length dresses? What will really make your day happily memorable? Do you even have to have attendants? Centuries ago the role of the maid of honor or bridesmaid was to attend to the bride several days before her wedding; an additional role of attendants, both bridesmaids and groomsmen, was to dress similarly to the wedded couple in order to confuse evil spirits or jealous suitors who might try to sabotage the wedding or in some way harm the

couple. Thankfully, the duties have become less risky and demanding and may be as simple as signing as a witness to the marriage. (Because state laws vary, verify how many witnesses' signatures are needed on the marriage certificate.) In selecting whom you will ask to stand up for you at your wedding, first share your concern with your fiancé and consider his input. Then consider those who are dear to you and whom you respect. The person whom you select should see the opportunity as both an honor and a privilege to be standing at your side. Perhaps there is an older woman whose marriage you admire. Maybe your childhood friend would laugh with you before, during and after the ceremony, adding to a life full of meaningful experiences. Perhaps your sister has become the trusted confidante you have come to appreciate and she would be the "perfect" choice. Perhaps a male friend would serve as your bridesman (with your fiance's approval, of course). The choice is yours.

The goal of your bridal party selection is to enhance your memorable day with favorable circumstances and experiences. Choose wisely...and enjoy your day!

Over the Top

By Tresa Erickson

Many a young girl dreams of marrying her prince one day in a lavish wedding. Planning such a wedding requires time and money, and lots of it. The more elaborate the wedding, the higher the price tag. Experts suggest that the average price for a wedding today runs anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000. For many folks, the figure is staggering. For others, it is a mere pittance. There have been many weddings costing in the millions of dollars throughout history, but the most expensive to date belongs to that of Vanish Mittal and Amit Bhatia. The six-day affair was held in France in 2004 and cost $55 to $60 million. Mittal's father, the Indian Steel Maharajah, picked up the tab for the affair, which included performances by Sha Rukh Khan and Kylie Minogue. Next to a multimillion-dollar wedding, a $12 million wedding dress might seem like nothing. The Diamond Wedding Gown from Renee Strausse and Martin Katz Jewellers featured 150 carats of diamonds and was the most expensive in the world. It was shown at the Luxury Brands Lifestyle Bridal Show in 2006, while the second-most expensive wedding dress was shown at Dubai's Fashion & Diamonds Show. Designed by Yumi Katsura, the gown featured a thousand pearls and one of only two five-carat white gold diamonds in the world. It was valued at $8.5 million. For wedding cakes, nothing can top the $20 million masterpiece of Nahid La Patisserie Artistique and Mimi So. The cake appeared in 2006 at the Luxury Bridal Show in Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Decked with jewels, it was not intended to be eaten. The tab for flowers for the average wedding can run in the hundreds of dollars, but the most expensive wedding bouquet cost way more, about $125,000. The red and white bouquet features 90 gemstones, nine diamonds and a star-shaped ruby and is on display on the sixth floor of the Ruby Plaza in Hano, Vietnam. Money is not always an object in wedding planning. It is hard to imagine someone spending millions of dollars on a once-in-a-lifetime event, but it does happen, often with celebrities and the well-to-do. Sometimes the marriage works, and sometimes it doesn't, begging the question if over-the-top weddings are worth it.

WHEN HE’S ON HIS GAME? BY ANDY MINDZAK Alfredo Simon’s offseason this year was a bit less crazy than last year’s—to say the least. Simon, a right-handed pitcher for the O’s, was accused of murder and aggravated assault in January 2011 in his native Dominican Republic. He was jailed for months, but managed to post bail in March. His legal troubles hung over his head all season. He was found not guilty of the crimes in November, and he is at last free to concentrate on baseball. “This year is going to be a good year because I don’t have a lot of things on my mind, my mind is clear,” he said at FanFest. “All the trouble I’ve had is over and I want to help the team win games this year.” He is genuinely excited about this year and what he can bring to the Orioles. Over the course of his four years

with the Orioles, he has both started and relieved. During the 2010 season he was used primarily as a reliever, posting a 4-2 record with 17 saves in 21 opportunities. But the Orioles’ starting rotation had problems of their own with injuries and overall ineffectiveness in 2011. Simon got a chance to start 16 games, posting a record of 4-9 with a 4.90 ERA. What does Simon prefer, starting or relieving? Like most pitchers, he sees himself as a starter. “I would rather be a starter, because all of my pitches are good. I have stuff to be a starter and win a lot of games. I know last year I came late and started in the bullpen, but I just come back to be a starter and see what happens this year,” he says. Alfredo seems to be in good shape,

and said he felt good and has been working out a lot this winter. He has also been working on his slider this winter, and he feels confident he will be throwing nasty stuff in time for Opening Day. Incredibly, for someone whose personal life was so chaotic, Simon actually improved his control on the mound in 2011. During the 2010 season Simon struck out 37 batters and walked 22 in 49.1 innings pitched. His 2011 numbers were better, as he struck out 83 hitters while walking 40 in 115.2 innings pitched. His WHIP (walks and hits per

innings pitched) also improved, going from 1.54 in 2010 to 1.45 in 2011. When on his game, Simon has great stuff. Just ask the Minnesota Twins, who flailed away at Simon’s offerings in a game on August 23, managing only one earned run and racking up eight strikeouts. Buck Showalter is hinting at fierce competition for the starting rotation in 2012. If Simon can have a strong spring and stay on his game, he definitely has the stuff to get a spot as a starter. If not, he is a great arm coming out of the bullpen.

Murder in Greektown: IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

(must be used within 30 days)

A debut novel by Edward P. Ciesielski, Jr.

Drama is found on every page of this action-packed novel, circa1944-1983, as the Dexter-type anti-hero travels a road to success paved over the bodies of his rivals. This fast-moving tale loaded with unpredictable twists and turns takes place largely in Greektown and features police drama from the Southeastern Precinct. Long-time residents of the area will recognize many past familiar sights: Click’s Pool Room, Illona Restaurant and the Garden Bakery, to name just a few. More action is generated when firefighters from 41 Engine fight a death-defying blaze. Recommended for Mature Readers Review from Jason Filipou, Executive Director-Greektown Community Development Corporation: “This book truly is a page turner. The author does a great job vividly and accurately incorporating nostalgic elements of Greektown and Highlandtown. Mixed with a realistic portrayal of the types of characters during that time period, the intense plot kept me eagerly reading throughout the novel. Not only did I enjoy the story and characters, I learned and gained a better perspective of life in my hometown fifty years ago. I was ‘hooked’ the whole way through. I highly recommend IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING to my friends in Highlandtown so they may enjoy it as much as I did. I think this could be pitched as a pretty cool film, perhaps Levinson or Waters would be interested.

sands of jobs and that’s reflected in the way Baltimore looks—but that could be turned around with two or three really good employers.” There is also a lot to like about the city. “One of the things I really like about Baltimore is the amazing little traditions that you have, like these taverns being incubators for the arts. I think it’s a great aspect of Baltimore life,” he said. Lane, the curator of so many barroom exhibits, says that the arrange-


ment is mutually beneficial. The art shows bring in customers that wouldn’t ordinarily come to the business, and the artists’ work gets exposure. Most of the bars offer happy hour prices for the entire reception and put out a spread of snacks and appetizers. Cullen’s photographs will be displayed at Five Points Tavern, 1120 E. Fort Ave., Feb. 1-29. The reception is Tuesday, Feb. 7, 6-9 p.m. All are welcome; the bar’s famous fried pickles will be served.

“Bouncer” is a work in Bob Cullen’s photography exhibit at Five Points Tavern,

120 E. Fort Ave., Feb. 1-29. The reception is Tuesday, Feb. 7, 6-9 p.m. All are welcome; the bar’s famous fried pickles will be served. Fells Point antique store? That’s a good question, isn’t it? “I wanted to put people in unexpected situations and locations,” Cullen said. “I wanted a juxtaposition of expectations and environment.” To shoot “Addresses,” Cullen used friends and friends-of-friends as models, then set them up in those unexpected situations. One of the models, a friend of his son, is pictured sitting in a lawn chair on a corner in Little Italy, right by a fire hydrant painted like the Italian flag. By the way, the model is African American. “I wanted to see what people would think seeing him sitting there,” said Cullen. “The point is to see the picture and question, why are those people of that gender and race sitting there?” Cullen lives in Chevy Chase, but he has spent a “fair amount” of time in Baltimore, and his son went to the Maryland Institute College of Art and still lives here. Through his son, Cullen met J. Kelly Lane, South Baltimore’s doyenne d’art, who arranges art shows in bars and restaurants across the city. “I met Kelly and was thrilled with the idea of doing a show, seeing Baltimore with an outsider’s eye,” he said. “I

wanted to shoot things that people who live here wouldn’t necessarily see, with a fresh eye.” As an Oriole fan and father of a MICA undergraduate, Cullen was familiar with downtown and Camden Yards. Shooting “Addresses” let him explore further. “There is a tremendous vitality in so many neighborhoods,” he said. “Still, on the other hand, you can’t escape the tremendous loss of jobs and industrial base. Baltimore has lost thou-

Federal Hill sets dates for festivals BECKY MARTIN

PHIL TIRABASSI Owner/Broker 443-690-0552

Fest of All, Spring Block Party, Jazz & Blues on410-236-5001 calendar BY MARY HELEN SPRECHER NEWSROOM@BALTIMOREGUIDE.COM

Hard to believe it now, but the day will come when it will be a good idea to wander around outside wearing a T-shirt and shorts and searching for a cold beer in a go-cup. At least Federal Hill Main Street is counting on it. The organization has already lined up its warm-weather festivals. “The Spring Block Party is Sunday, April 29,” says Jane Seebold, executive director. “The Jazz & Blues, Wine & Art Festival is Sunday, June 3.” One caveat, however. “We decided not to set the date for the Street Beat Festival until after the Ravens announce their schedule in early May.” Street Beat, which comes on the heels of the festival season, is a Sunday event that has the potential to cause conflicts with tailgating, traffic and other aspects of the game that impact South Baltimore. For those who are still hankering for the festival season, Federal Hill has an indoor event, the Fest-of-All. The Fest-of-All, which can be safely assured of being the first festival of the 2012

BECKY MARTIN 410-236-5001 season, takes place on Saturday, February 25 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, 7 p.m.-11 p.m. According to Seebold, the event features food and drink, a fashion show, live music, silent auction and more. Tickets are $75/ person, with all proceeds to benefit Federal Hill Main Street. Information is available at
