YOU'RE INVITED to drop by the Pikesville Hilton tonight for a live broadcast of the Les Kinsolving Show from 7 until 10. Seems Les, a Civil War buff, and his WCBM-AM cohort, Frank Luber, will be re-creating scenes from the Battle of Gettysburg in full costume complete with music and sound effects. All the action, by the b'eye, takes place in Gabby's Lounge -- which is rather appropriate, don't you think?
TABLE HOPPING: We're happy to hear that Irina Barshay, the 30-year-old dynamo who owns the Unlimited Range restaurant at Barclay and East 32nd streets, re-opened her establishment last Tuesday with an all-new layout and an art show by local artist (and gourmet cook) Josh Fendell. Irina's added some health conscious light entrees to her eclectic Ukrainian menu. Starting July 13, she'll begin serving pre-fixe Saturday night "bring your own bottle" dinners that will feature guest chefs. Reservations are necessary.
FOR THE RECORD: Catonsville born musician Richard Walton is celebrating the release of his new CD/cassette entitled "Out of Bounds," with a party beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday at An Die Musik in Towson. The 60-minute tour de force features some other areas' musicians, including Joey D'Amico of "Crack the Sky," Cathy Zebron and T. J. Granger. A private VIP party will follow the listening party, which is open to the public.
TV TIDBITS: For the week of July 8th, WBAL-TV's weatherman, Tom Tasselmyer, will be forecasting the weather to the nation on "CBS This Morning." Tasselmyer was selected from weathermen across the nation to fill in for the vacationing Mark McEwen. . . . Sandra Pinckney has been named co-anchor of "Eyewitness News at Noon" and Health watch reporter, replacing Ann Kellan, who's relocated to Atlanta to be married.
GIRLS NIGHT OUT: WCAO radio's mid-day personality, Brenda Bissett, will be hosting a fabulous evening of entertainment Aug. 9. This month she will be asking listeners to call in and tell them why they deserve a night out on the town. The station will select one lucky lady and two of her friends to be picked up by a limo and taken to the Peabody Court's Conservatory Restaurant for a sumptuous gourmet meal followed by a moonlit cruise around the Harbor, courtesy of Harbor Cruises.
AND FINALLY, the guest list looked like a "who's who" of local notables at the black tie wedding Saturday night of St. Paul's teacher (and law student) Pamela Pitts and Robert Pierce, who's chief financial officer of Maybelline, at the posh Peabody Court. On hand to wish the newlyweds well were Sandy and John Unitas; Sally Thorner and Dr. Brian Rosenfeld; Jim and Joni Palmer; Hersh and Freda Pachino; Cover Girl ad man Peter Troup; psychologist Rosemary Hanley; and headmaster of St. Paul's upper school Bill Bassett with wife Dr. Susan Bassett.
