Nestled among the dealerships on the Brand Boulevard of Cars is a cute little place called the Rush Hour CafĂ© & Grill. It specializes in Middle Eastern cuisine, but it ventures into Greek and Mediterranean territory as well. While there are dozens of other restaurants in Glendale that offer similar cuisine, done better, this place has a couple of advantages — location and price. If you’re shopping for a car or you work in the area, it’s a good place to drop in and get an inexpensive bite.

Molly Shore Once a week, the 17 students in Judy Shalhoub's Bistro Cooking class dice, slice, mince and puree on a grand scale. The young Burbank High School chefs produce soups, chowders and chili so tasty their classmates and teachers place orders for delivery to their fourth-period classes. A $1 donation usually gets them a 12-ounce cup of the week's soup. "I have a lot of teachers who regularly order," Shalhoub said. One week, the students might cook lentil soup, while another time it's creamy potato soup.

When a film describes itself as being about "sex, drugs and matzo ball soup" in its main advertising tagline, you know immediately that this is not intended to appeal to a wide audience. An important question that I thought about before seeing "When Do We Eat?" (rated R) was to wonder if one must be Jewish to understand and appreciate this definitely quirky film. And a typically Jewish response is, "Yes and no." The plot revolves around the highly dysfunctional Stuckman family, headed by father Ira (Michael Lerner)

On-the-go chef, Boy Scouts scoutmaster and member of the Burbank Salvation Army Harry Gunn, a dedicated volunteer for the city of Burbank, died of unknown causes Oct. 9 at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. He was 79. He died just three months after his wife, Patricia Gunn. Both were known and loved by the Burbank community for their service. “You can say he died of heartbreak,” said his daughter, Wendy Gunn. “It was a special connection — wherever she volunteered, he would help, too.” A 44-year resident of Burbank, Gunn often cooked meals for other volunteers.

The Chop Stop, Burbank's newest "fast-food" restaurant, advertises a salad "loaded with fresh, wholesome foods that are nutritious, delicious and fast. " From my experience eating lunch at the Chop Stop with my wife on the day of its grand-opening celebration, Jan. 7, it delivered in two categories — fast and nutritious. It's fast because everything is pre-chopped, but both my wife's Cobb Chop ($9.24) and my Chop Shop Classic ($8.49) had too much dressing, which made the salads too soggy and lacking in crispness.

Irma Lemus MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- A few noses may have been turned up, but even the strong smell of onions could not dim the enthusiasm of George Washington Elementary students as they dug into the soil of the school's environmental garden. Sixteen Washington students were at work in the garden Thursday morning, unearthing onions and washing them in preparation to be made into French onion soup. The students were part of an ongoing two-week summer nutritional program at the school.

Molly Shore When John T. Boal published his book, "Be a Global Force of One!," he said it got great reviews, but nobody bought it. Discouraged, he interviewed Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, co-creators of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books to find out how they became successful, selling 81 million copies of books in their series. "More than a year later, I got a call to be a participant on the [new] project," he said. Boal, one of six co-authors of the newest volume, "Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul," said he was once confronted by a woman who told him she thought the books were too "schmaltzy."

Universal Pictures? animated holiday film is ?The Tale of Despereaux,? adapted from a Newbery Medal-winning children?s novel by Kate DiCamillo. The handsome fairy tale is directed by two experienced animators, Sam Fell and Robert Stevenhagen, but is of only moderate interest, neither magical nor musical, narrated by Sigourney Weaver with matter-of-fact intonation. The characters are computer-generated with well-drawn rats with long snouts, cuter, fatter mice and humans with narrow faces reminiscent of portraits painted by 20th-century Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani.
