Providencia Ave. Who knew?

Molly Shore For his 91st birthday on June 28, Burbank resident John Livingston gave himself a painting. A great big painting. Livingston, who has been working in oils since his retirement from Lockheed in 1975, has just completed a 24-foot-long, 8-foot-high mural on his neighbor's garage, which backs up to Livingston's property. He said he got tired of looking at the back of the garage, so with his neighbor's permission Livingston painted a scene of a location in the High Sierras that is special to him. "It's our favorite fishing spot," he said of the bend in the Owens River beneath Mt. Tom where he, his sons and grandsons go fishing.

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.

burbank arts festStained-glass artist one of 80 participants in Downtown Burbank's Fine Arts Festival this weekend. A glimmer of colored glass caught Chip Worsinger's attention in the 1960s. As an inspector for an insurance company, one of his stops was at a glass studio. Fascinated, Worsinger started asking questions about the shop owner's craft, and the proprietor was nice enough to send him home with a box of tools and scraps of glass. About the same time, Worsinger discovered the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and was intrigued by the lifestyle of the artists who sold items there.

What could have been more perfect for St. Patrick's Day than to have the sun shinin' bright during a wee sprinklin' o' rain that resulted in a rainbow arched over Burbank? While, as of yet, there been no reports of any pots of gold being discovered, many locals honored the patron saint of the emerald isle by gatherin' with the McKenna clan and partaking in a little liquid gold - toastin' with a wee dram o' Irish whiskey or tippin' a pint o' Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale, Smithwick's Ale or Guinness, Beamish and Murphy's stouts.

They hoped to go to Yala, a small fishing village surrounded by the ocean and an animal sanctuary where they wanted to go on a safari. Fortunately for the Burbank kindergarten teacher and her 20-year-old daughter, they missed the adventure as the massive Southeast Asia earthquake caused a tsunami that has killed hundreds of thousands of people.

Joyce Rudolph Seeing the finished designs at the Las Floristas Headdress Ball is nothing short of overwhelming. These 6-foot-tall creations are bursting with flowers of all varieties and colors and surround women adorned in lavish gowns. It's hard to decide what to look at, as one sits in the audience, much less remember each flower petaled delicately onto the frame. Two Burbank designers had entries in this year's gala, "All That Glitters," which was held April 28 at Merv Griffin's Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Offering insight on issues of race and gender, the Alexia Robinson Studio in Burbank presents a powerfully moving rendition of “for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf.” Robinson herself skillfully directs this extremely complex and emotionally charged production. Originally conceived in 1975, playwright Ntozake Shange’s script exposes the trials and camaraderie of a group of African American women. Constructed as a “choreopoem” this piece incorporates dance, song and the spoken word.
