Five Traditional Sports Bars For March Madness and Baseball

It’s spring and that means March Madness and baseball.  In the spirit of the season, this column is for the men who love sports, the women who love sports, and for those who don’t care for sports and just want to get their significant other fed and away from the home television — this one is for you too.

Restaurants: Comings and Goings

How many sushi joints can try and make a go of it at 16161 Ventura Blvd in Encino?  Six going on seven, it seems.  Tomo Sushi is now making plans to open in the same space that housed Crazy Tokyo Sushi, Sushi Avenue, Mika Sushi, Tokyo Ice, Moolgoge Sushi and Sushi Aieto.  In other sushi news, Encino’s Mako Sushi (in the CPK center) is being replaced by a new establishment. Stay tuned. Hot Wings Café has finally opened at 4609 Van Nuys Blvd. nearly two years after construction began.  This is the fifth location for this popular eatery that originated on Melrose Avenue. The former Chez Nous in Toluca Lake is now curiously a venue for two separately owned establishments that share some of the same food items —Aeirloom Bakery and...

The Hungry Girl Diet: Loving Junk Food and Eating It Too

Baked potato thins, M & M cookies, cobb salad, onion rings, pizza, and fettuccine alfredo? Not your typical “diet” food choices, but in the world according to Hungry Girl phenom, Lisa Lillien, items normally associated with junk food can exist — with a twist, that is.  Lillien, an Encino resident, is a #1 New York Times best-selling author who makes watching what you eat fun and fanciful.  What originated just over a decade ago as a daily newsletter is now a multi-million dollar industry that includes books, TV shows and product endorsements.  Now, she is back with her ninth book, The Hungry Girl Diet. Although she has sold over two million Hungry Girl books, this is her first official “diet” tome. Lillien worked with...
