dineLeave your fancy duds and your pretense behind and enter an authentic American roadhouse -- Ribs U.S.A. in Burbank. Scoop a basket of peanuts from the barrel by the door and make your way across the sawdust-covered floor to a plywood booth. Drinks appear practically instantly and soon you'll be washing down those peanuts with glasses of tea, soda, beer or wine. Go ahead and toss the shells on the floor, that's where they belong at this laid-back, friendly, down-home eatery.

It was the sort of luncheon group that makes every historian and journalist squirm with the regret of being unable to transform into that proverbial fly on the wall. It was a unique moment in the White House when then-President George W. Bush hosted President-Elect Barack Obama, and former Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter for lunch and private discussions on such topics as national security to raising children in the public eye. Fortunately, parents lack that fly on the wall ability as well, otherwise my cousins and I seated around a table at Barney’s Beanery in Burbank on a recent Saturday night might have eaten in silence.

It's hard not to love a place like Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill. The name alone says "neighborhood watering hole and stick-to-your-ribs grub. " Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill, with all its funkiness, has catered to the Burbank locals since 1939. It must be doing something right because it has had only three owners since that time. It was one of my favorite places in the early 1970s when I was the sports editor of the Burbank Daily Review. When I returned last week after a 35-year absence, swinging open the saloon doors, it was like walking into a time warp.

Paul Clinton CIVIC CENTER -- More than two years after it first entered the City Hall pipeline, the $200-million Burbank Empire Center cleared its biggest hurdle with unanimous approval by the City Council. After months of exhaustive environmental reviews and planning, the mega project sailed past the council Sept. 5. Despite some criticism that the development on former Lockheed Martin Corp. property will compete with existing businesses and expose workers and shoppers to ground-based toxins, only a handful of residents spoke out against the project at the final hearing.

Paul Clinton CIVIC CENTER -- From rivets to retail, what a difference the end of a Cold War makes. Once at the cross hairs of the Southern California aerospace industry, Lockheed Martin Corp.'s "B-1" property may soon be the home of a sparkling new Krispy Kreme doughnut shop. Can a Staples office supply store be far behind? Probably not. With the ambitious plans laid out by Burbank officials for their new Burbank Empire Center project -- 750,000 square feet of office space, two hotels and auto dealerships, they'll need some space fillers.
