Practically everything about Lily’s Cafe in Burbank is adorable. But be careful driving down the street trying to find it because it’s so small, you can easily overlook it. It’s very cozy and has only six tables, with a few stools alongside the large window fronting the street. It’s very homey and out of place on a busy street. I’d expect this more in a smaller, touristy city such as Solvang or Carmel, but I’m glad it’s closer to us. Lily herself is very personable, as clearly evidenced by the steady stream of apparently regular customers she greeted with genuine hugs as they stopped in for lunch, both dine-in and takeout.

Consider L.A. a model for water Faced with our current water problems, one solution for Burbank that I don’t believe has been brought to the fore is a program the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is offering their customers. That is a cash incentive to replace their grass lawns with drought-tolerant plants. Along with the cutbacks in other water usage, it should make a big dent. But unless there are penalties, some people will not restrict their usage in other areas.

In 1959, a quartet of teenage musicians from Liverpool, England, were playing small local clubs under the name of Johnny and the Moondogs. The following year, they would change their name to the Beatles. Across the pond, the United States would start the year with 48 states and end it with 50. The men who would grow up to be the 42nd and 43rd leaders of those states were in grade school, and two more years would pass before the country’s current president would be born. In Burbank, folks were doing much the same as people all over the nation — listening to Elvis, Paul Anka and Bobby Darin on the radio, watching new shows like “Bonanza” and “The Twilight Zone” on TV, and going to see movies like “Ben-Hur” and “Some Like It Hot.” That was also the year that two young entrepreneurial Burbankers named Al and Delores Thomas gathered up $5,000 and opened The Tallyrand Restaurant on Olive Avenue.

This is not your parents’ Chinese restaurant. Forget the red vinyl booths, papier-mâché dragons and rice-paper lanterns hanging everywhere. And don’t expect the kitschy plates or pots of tea. It is a minor detail, but it says everything. The fortune cookies are delicious. Instead of the usual break-your-teeth perfunctory after-dinner treat, here they bring fortune cookies wrapped in brightly colored foil that are fresh and have been partially dipped in white chocolate.

I'm not sure where it was on the road of life that I got the idea that health food stores were full of things that didn't taste very good and should be avoided. But I do know where I was when I found out how wrong I was ? the Full O'Life Health Food Market and Restaurant in Burbank. Maybe I confused health food with foul-tasting diet food. Whatever. All I can tell you is that I feel like I've made a new friend, though I'm admittedly late to the party. Full O'Life has been a part of the community since 1959, making it one of the first natural food stores in the region.

Sometimes you can't be too literal when it comes to restaurant names. Case in point ? Bake It Again, Sam!, the bagel shop on Riverside Drive in Burbank. The name has nothing to do with twice-baked bagels, which don't actually exist. Instead it's a play on the line famously not spoken by Humphrey Bogart in my favorite movie of all time, Casablanca, "Play it again, Sam." In the movie, it's all about a song. Here, it's all about the bagel. Making the perfect bagel is more art than science.

Bill Scollon The Castaway, a fixture for more than 40 years -- a run interrupted only by fire and rebuilding -- is arguably "the" place in Burbank for special occasions. On any given night, you'll find people celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, reunions, promotions -- you name it. And why not? The food is good, the view is terrific and the island decor appealing. But the most outstanding feature of the restaurant is not the hanging plants, shell lamps or the aquarium.

Cherie Mercer Twohy If you can't fit a spa day into your hectic schedule, consider a spa lunch hour at Favorite Place in Glendale. Its relaxation magic begins before you enter. The building's exterior is enhanced with trompe l'oeil garlands, hinting at the ambience within. Open the door onto a bower of flowers, chintz and charm. Carefully mismatched chairs invite you to sink in and relax. Tables are laid with cloth napkins and fresh flowers and strewn with silk flower petals.

'Twelfth Dog Night' opens Thursday at Falcon Theatre The Falcon Theatre invites comic anarchy to take the stage Thursday when the Troubadour Theatre Company opens its "Twelfth Dog Night," a madcap combination of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" and the rock 'n' roll of the '70s pop band 3 Dog Night. Songs such as "Joy to the World," "One is the Loneliest Number," and "Just an Old Fashioned Love Song," help tell the tale of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers and their entourage of comic buffoons.
