The Burbank Civitan Club has moved its major fundraiser, the St. Patrick's Day Champagne Brunch, to the Burbank Holiday Inn's South Pacific Ballroom for this year's event on Sunday. If you haven't been to the Holiday Inn for some time, you will be mighty impressed with the recent redecoration of all its banquet facilities, executed beautifully by Erika Hofmann, director of operations for the hotel. They are lovely! Civitan members will welcome guests beginning at 10 a.m. with brunch served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Better set your alarms because we lose an hour of sleep due to the return of daylight saving time.

Annie Bettelli GLENDALE -- Don Cuco Mexican Restaurant has been a popular restaurant in Burbank for as long as I can remember. Glendale now has its own branch at a recently opened location on Brand Boulevard. This Don Cuco is bright and sunny, decorated in vivid rainbow colors in a traditional hacienda motif. One feature at the Burbank location that was unique to any Mexican restaurant I've been to is that they serve sour cream along with the salsa and chips.
