While economists are saying we may be reaching the end of the recession, I?m still counting pennies, trolling for coupons and looking for ways to stretch the handful of dollars clinging to my wallet. Like a lot of people, I?ve altered my spending behavior, plucking only the necessities from grocery store shelves and vastly reducing my dining-out budget (Food Fight being the exception). Another hibernating habit is buying java from corporate giants. So, I?ve been brewing at home or seeking out independently owned coffee houses.

Romancing the Bean on San Fernando Road has put its small corner stage to good use. The spacious coffeehouse in Downtown Burbank attracts a regular audience for open-mic nights, comedy and music performances throughout the week. Owner Kerri Crull moved the business to this location three years ago. Her previous location on West Magnolia Boulevard was smaller and consequently more difficult to put on performances, she said. She has been using the stage frequently and proudly attests that Metro Station, a now well-known pop-rock band, started there.

BURBANK ? When disaster strikes, a diverse local humanitarian community often converges to provide large-scale relief to distressed countries in times of crisis. Saturday was no different, as the Burbank-based Islamic Relief Center teamed up with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to deliver more than 200 tons of emergency supplies to Indonesia after a massive earthquake ravaged the island of Java. "We've found it's a great working relationship, using Mormon resources and the Muslim organization's ability to do such a great job of distributing [relief supplies]

When a group of ukulele players got together recently for a jam session, Burbank resident Alissa Hunnicutt was among them, gaining experience performing in public. She only began learning the instrument about two years ago when she started watching YouTube videos. After she began taking lessons with a Burbank instructor, she made it her goal to perform for others.  “That's my goal,” she said, “To get a little half-hour set and sing.” On Saturday, she brought her custom ukulele, which features a painted design of a moon and stars created by an Australian artist, to a Montrose coffee shop where more than a dozen others played together.

Before Starbucks colonized Burbank, if you can remember such a time, there was Priscilla's. And when the corporate giant put a store across the intersection from the independent java house, many of us feared it would be the end of them. Happily, that wasn't the case. Priscilla's is alive and well and doing what they do best, serving up good cups of coffee, tea and special drinks along with tasty pastries and a smile. Priscilla's is situated on a leafy corner and brings the outdoors inside with an English garden mural that wraps around the room.

Diners are the kind of eateries that appeal to the masses — folks looking for home-style cooking at an affordable price, parties of one who prefer the counter space for easier newspaper perusal and the bedraggled likes of those who over-indulged the night before, looking for the perfect greasy dish to sop up their alcoholic excess. You don’t have to drive too far around Glendale or Burbank to spot these greasy spoons, a distinction more charming than disparaging in today’s culinary terminology.
