It doesn't take much to put this town into Redskins mania. As the team prepares to go to Soldier Field, Chicago's ice bowl, to face the Bears Sunday, Washington entrepreneurs are offering fans special attractions in warm bars and restaurants. At Champions Sports Bar in Georgetown on Sunday, and at Dominique downtown this week, bear will be on the menu.

And at Dominique (closed Sundays), where animal lovers have complained because wild game is often on the menu, they're serving a "you beat 'em ... we eat 'em" item called Bears a` la Haji-Sheikh, or bear medallions in cranberry sauce.

Royal Watch: Getting a jump on the London Fleet Street reporters who will certainly raise the question, Where's Diana?, Prince Charles has announced that he will be visiting Palm Beach, Fla., for two days in March, but his wife won't be with him. He will attend a fundraiser for a Kenyan wild game preserve and once again play polo at the stuffy Palm Beach Polo and Country Club. The last time he played there was in November 1985, when he and Diana were in the United States for the opening of the "Treasure Houses of Britain" exhibit at the National Gallery of Art. We are being told that the princess will not be with him this time because she "has a prior commitment." She's probably cleaning the bathrooms that weekend ...
