BURBANK ? Answering calls to replenish depleted shelves at the Burbank Temporary Aid Center, one of the city?s main charities dedicated to assisting the homeless and low-income residents, a dozen real estate professionals spent the weekend collecting and delivering 11 shopping carts of food and toiletries. Dan Soderstrom led a team from Dilbeck GMAC Real Estate down city streets and through neighborhoods with the message that ?hunger doesn?t take a summer vacation.? ?This is something I made a point to do at my previous company and everyone was glad to pitch in,?

The inside of 40 Love Café feels like a food court, the outside just the tiniest bit like Wimbledon courtside. Within the Burbank Tennis Center, the café's interior is all large white floor tiles and pinkish walls, with the tables and white tubular chairs you've seen inside countless malls.

Kudos to the tennis student brave enough to schedule a lesson at midday, when the tables are full with the lunchtime crowd.

If you are looking for a simple, nondescript, affordable place that has good Thai food, head over to Saraya Thai in Burbank.

The menu offers a wide variety of traditional Thai selections, although you will notice some dishes such as kung pao and tempura that are more commonly associated with Chinese and Japanese dining.

Marcie Jones plans to stop by Top of the Swirl a few times a week for yogurt, even though she’s tried it only once. “I am a yogurt fiend; I usually stop at Haagen-Dazs on the way back from work, but now I am going to have to come here instead,” said Jones, who is a barista at a Starbucks in Glendale. “They have great toppings, and it’s way better than other yogurt places in the area because you get tons of fruit in every bite.” Top of the Swirl, which opened a month ago, prides itself on its self-serve setup, allowing customers to concoct their own dessert creations.
