Want to celebrate that “breathtaking” throw by Yasiel Puig from the far right foul line all the way to 3rd base taking out Turner of the N.Y. Mets as he tried to slide in head first? Or, how about another home run by Andre Ethier, or a walk off winning hit by Adrian Gonzalez? Will […]

The former Stuart Pharmaceutical Company site, built in 1958 by architect Edward Durell Stone (known in particular for designing the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.), is listed on the National Register. […]

Oceanview Bistro

Oceanview Bistro

Ugh, the dreaded office lunch out. (OK, I know, offices are lucky to be able to afford lunch out these days, and if you have a job at all, you’re happy. But work with me here.) The boss dreads it because of the expense, the hassle and the excruciating need to make small talk. The […]

Noises All Around

Noises All Around

The confusion that arises from the theater troupe known as A Noise Within (let’s call them ANW) doing a show called Noises Off, which is a show about another show called “Nothing On,” is really only the beginning. Reviving last year’s hit production, ANW’s show is fast-paced, funny, overwrought and charming. It’s an exhilarating night […]

Forest Lawn Memorial Park

Forest Lawn Memorial Park

The first in this swank chain of memorial parks (these guys thought up the term “memorial park,” because “cemetery” sounded so gloomy), Forest Lawn gives the deceased an upbeat, sun- and light-filled final resting place. So until Angelenos find a Botox-injected cure for death, we can pay our respects in these wide-open spaces – no […]

Zankou Chicken

Zankou Chicken

The aroma of this Lebanese rotisserie chicken drives our kids mad with hunger. You tear the salty meat and skin off the bird, stuff it into a pita, add garlic sauce, and go to poultry heaven. Good schwarmas and wraps, but the chicken’s the thing here. 1296 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, 626.405.1502, zankouchicken.com. Lebanese. L […]
