  • ANGELOS TO GOVERNOR: DON'T EVEN THINK OF PARKING HERE

              Orioles Owner Peter Angelos, in a letter dated November
         20, termed comments made last week by MD Gov. Parris
         Glendening urging the Orioles and the MD Stadium Authority
         (MSA) to "work more closely" on stadium issues "grossly
         inappropriate," according to Jon Morgan of the Baltimore
         SUN.  Angelos' letter "reasserted the team's opposition" to
         a MSA proposal to have a parking garage developed at Camden
         Yards in connection with an "urban entertainment complex."
         Glendening was critical of the Orioles last week for their
         stated opposition to the project, but Angelos said that his
         remarks reflect "a serious lack of knowledge of what is
         occurring."  Morgan adds that MSA Exec Dir Bruce Hoffman has
         called Angelos' office to request a meeting, but as of
         yesterday, Angelos "had not responded to the call." 
         Glendening's Deputy Chief of Staff, David Iannucci,
         "declined to comment" on the letter (SUN, 11/25).

  • JORDAN'S N.Y. STEAKHOUSE IS UPSCALE: NO JETS FANS ALLOWED?

              In a licensing agreement with Manhattan-based Glazier
         Group that was signed yesterday, "Michael Jordan - The
         Steakhouse" will open in February in New York's Grand
         Central Station, according to Florence Fabricant of the N.Y.
         TIMES.  Under terms of the deal, the restaurant will use
         Jordan's name and be run by Penny and Peter Glazier, who run
         the upscale, "The Monkey Bar," among others.  The 150-seat
         steakhouse will occupy 7,000 square feet, with a 60-seat bar
         and a "small retail shop" selling mainly restaurant related
         items.  The menu's "typical steakhouse main courses" will be
         priced "in the $20 range."  Peter Glazier: "It's about fine
         dining and Michael Jordan the businessman.  There will not
         be any sports memorabilia or photographs of Michael Jordan
         shooting baskets in the restaurant."  The Glaziers "hope to
         become involved in more projects" with Jordan after the
         steakhouse opens (N.Y. TIMES, 11/25).
