Corned Beef

By BOB MAGINNIS | October 17, 2007
In a newspaper with thousands of readers, what are the odds that three of them would nominate a creation from the same restaurant in the "Hagerstown's Best Sandwich" contest? I'd have bet against it, but it happened. If you missed my column of Oct. 3, that's when I revived a contest that I've run periodically over the past 10 years. It's called "Hagerstown's Best Sandwich" and those who enter were asked to describe, in 100 words or less, their favorite sandwich. There were only a few rules.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Using a spoon, some youths followed normal etiquette - if you can call wolfing down a pint of vanilla ice cream as fast as possible normal. Some of them clearly didn't have their hearts into winning the ice cream-eating contest; perhaps they were there for the free ice cream. But others dove in tongue first, scooped out dripping mounds of vanilla with their bare hands or ripped parts of the Styrofoam pint container off and ate the creamy dessert as if it were corn on the cob. Sure, playing baseball and going swimming are favorite summer activities, but food-eating contests also are a rite of summer.

By ANNE CHOVEY Special to The Herald-Mail My pal, Tom Atoe, and I stopped in for a bite to eat at The Brickyard Grill, a new salad and sandwich shop in downtown Hagerstown. The restaurant is small with a few tables in the shape of huge butterflies. The bulk of the business is take-out for busy office workers who want to grab a quick lunch. The restaurant was spotless. The menu is primarily made up of sandwiches: hot, signature and deli.

FUNKSTOWN - Gritty Chicago columnist Mike Royko once waxed indignant over having been served a cheeseburger in California that contained pecans. Royko had definite ideas about a proper cheeseburger, and pecans, avocados, pineapple, et al. were certainly not part of the equation. The 10th Inning Funkstown Tavern and Restaurant, however, would have fulfilled his checklist quite adequately. The local bar and eatery's interpretation of the all-American classic is a healthy patty of asymmetrically formed beef (well-done, of course)

It's often said that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. And that's no blarney. From the wearing of leprechaun hats to the consumption of green beer and corned beef, people of all ancestral backgrounds have embraced the holiday with open arms. Virtually every American city throws some semblance of a party to celebrate March 17. Chicago dyes its river green, New York and Boston compete for the best parade and Kansas City, Mo., starts the day with an Irish Mass, followed by a grand procession through the streets and an annual food drive called "Go for the Green.

As February's hearts make way for March's shamrocks, children are bound to ask questions. Why do we celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Why does everyone wear green on that day? What is a shamrock? Why are leprechauns and pots of gold part of the decorations? Since St. Patrick's Day - March 17 - is less than two weeks away, we better start preparing our answers. First celebrated in the United States in 1737, this holiday is named for St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

Porn and prayer. What a conflicted week for the University of Maryland. First came porn. A campus showing of a Triple X movie was temporarily canceled after a Maryland state senator threatened to punish the state's flagship university by cutting school funding. Next came prayer. The University Senate, citing sensitivity issues, voted to eliminate the invocation from graduation ceremonies. So what if, like me, you are in favor of both? Does that make you a porn again Christian?

There's an old adage in the prognostication game: "Never trust someone who is always smiling. " It's usually the sign that we aficionados of big stakes and cheesesteaks know means not to go near that person for one of three reasons: They are lying; They are holding out; They just had gastric relief. So, it struck me the other day when I read about all the work that researchers are doing on the Mona Lisa. They are worried about goofy things, like what house paint Leonardo da Vinci used and the code he used in his color-by-number set. I wanted to know what was really going on with that photo.
