While the folks at Morton?s restaurant are committed to catering to the discerning taste buds of their carnivorous clientele who are not in the least bit fazed by a three-figure tab, the eatery is also committed to making sure that food is being served to those who will most likely never cross their threshold. The West Olive Avenue steakhouse last week staged a cocktail reception to assist in beefing up the coffers of its charity partner, Feeding America and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

GLENDALE — After a two-year absence from Glendale, the Los Angeles County winter homeless shelter is expected to officially return to the National Guard Armory near downtown, officials said. Glendale’s armory on Colorado Street had hosted the program, which is administered and funded by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, for more than 10 years, but in 2007, it was moved to Burbank to allow for construction and building upgrades. The move to Burbank got a relatively warm reception, but last year, residents living near the Burbank armory started to complain, sparking community meetings and discord on the Burbank City Council on what to do with the shelter.

DOWNTOWN — Glendale and Burbank were the only two Los Angeles County cities to make gains in office rentals in the first quarter of 2009, a stark contrast to the dramatic increase in emptying office buildings across the region. During the first three months of the year, an additional 2.5 million square feet of office space went on the market countywide. That figure grew from 1 million square feet of vacancies from the last quarter of 2008, and just 626,895 square feet last April, according to a new report from real estate firm Grubb & Ellis.
