BE THERE, BE THERE
Load up the kin folk and head for the 35th annual Trak Auto World of Wheels Custom Car Show at the Baltimore Convention Center this weekend.
You'll find, among other spectacles, the jalopy from the "Beverly Hillbillies" movie, as well as the original TV Batmobile.
The show will be featuring souped up cars and trucks, as well. Plus, on Saturday, fans can meet John Stamos, who plays Uncle Jesse on "Full House." Tomorrow and Sunday, David Lascher, who plays Vinny on "Blossom," and Rhonda Shear from "USA Up All Night" will be signing autographs.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. tomorrow and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Admission: $9 for adults; $4 children 4 to 10; children under 4 free.
Pull the kids away from the television Sunday and take them to the Baltimore Arena for the Nickelodeon Live Tour '94.
Children from the audience will be chosen to participate in their favorite games from the Nickelodeon cable television network.
One of the stars will be a Baltimore native, comedian Phil Moore, who is host of Nickelodeon's popular game show, "Nick Arcade." Mr. Moore graduated from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute Senior High School. He's performed at well-known comedy clubs across the country. The Live Tour is hitting 70 cities this year.
Neat-freaks, be warned that some games involve slime and whipped cream. But kids will love it. Another event puts kids inside a game.
