Any Minute Now

Any Minute Now

A hint of sunshine today. A hint of heat. It’s going to get warm this week and I can’t wait. I love the days when you can leave the windows open. I love going for a walk without a sweater. I love sitting on the front porch with a glass of iced tea and a […]

Found dog: pinscher/chihuahua mix in the Meadows Sun.

Day writes us about a dog, found Sunday afternoon in the Meadows: This dog is VERY sweet yet VERY frightened.

Bungalow junkies, whose numbers are legion, clear their calendars in April to be ready for the annual Bungalow Heaven home tour, which […]

Spring Camps at Kidspace

Spring Camps at Kidspace

Spring break for moms ‘n’ dads of young ones has a whole different meaning than spring break for college kids—it can trigger terror at the thought of long days to fill while work must be done. Enter Kidspace’s full- and half-day spring camps for kids ages 6 to 10. The emphasis is on the gee-whiz, […]

KindKreme

KindKreme

KindKreme is not something you slather on your dinosaur-skin elbows or use to whiten your teeth. Neither is it a concoction from Harry Potter that turns bullies into sweethearts. Rather, it’s a vegan, organic, sustainable café that has a rocking ice cream counter, a smoothie/juice bar, coffee and some damn decent lunch choices. If you’re […]

Forage

Forage

WHY All things good and local are found at this modestly sized temple to tempting baked goods, bursting-with-flavor vegetables and ever-changing menus. WHAT The quintessential Silver Lake café instantly built a loyal following for some of the area’s best home-style, farmers’ market—sourced cooking, from the pork belly sandwich to superb daily quiches. At dinner, the […]
