The flowers are blooming. The butterflies are flitting. Spring is definitely here. What better way to celebrate than with a picnic under the trees at Descanso Gardens? The best part is that you can leave the cooking to the skillful chefs of Patina Catering. Every weekend until May 8, Descanso has added another option in al fresco dining, this one just outside the main entrance. Patina’s chefs are serving up a brief menu of barbecue favorites and a few special extras. I have to say their pulled pork sandwich ($8.95)

To the uninitiated motorist driving down Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank on a given Saturday, one might conclude there's a three-alarm fire, with huge billows of smoke near the intersection of Buena Vista Street. But open the car window and you'll know this fire was deliberately set, on one of the largest smoker grills you've ever seen. The intoxicating (at least for meat lovers) smell of fresh barbecue brings lines halfway down the block, week after week, year after year. The weekly cookout at the Handy Market has become so popular that some customers plan their weekly wait in line to catch up on their social lives and update their kids' progress in school.

The smell of barbecue, sounds of swing music and the legend of Manchester Boddy drew hundreds of visitors from across the Los Angeles area to La Cañada?s Descanso Gardens Monday for Boddy?s Big Backyard, an annual event at the gardens. While children rode ponies and kids of all ages toured the gardens on the Enchanted Railroad, some families shared picnics on the lawn and listened to Verdugo Swing Society play music from the 1930s and ?40s. Others took time to smell the flowers in the rose garden or share a shady bench by the koi pond.

What would the Cruise Night be without great food and fun?

Without a doubt, barbecue is the national comfort food of the United States. Whether you are grilling hamburgers and hot dogs over a backyard charcoal grill or smoking baby backs in a smoker the size of an RV, barbecued meat, poultry, fish and vegetables are an American staple that dominates, especially during those hot summer months. Kansas City, Texas and North and South Carolina each claims to be the barbecue capital of the U.S. When you talk about barbecue, every place has its own distinct ideas and flavors, including Downtown Burbank.

Lucy’s Pizza Corner was full of surprises. Its Burbank Boulevard location is not in the best Burbank neighborhood — it is attached to a liquor store and its overhead sign says, “Al Forno.” Furthermore, it has no web presence. If you Google it, you only get an address, phone number and basic information. Google “Burbank pizza places,” and you get nothing. I wasn’t holding out much hope for the quality of the food. But that turned out to be my final surprise.

GLENDALE — Life hasn't been the same for 24-year-old Christopher Chappelle since he was deployed twice to Iraq and Afghanistan while in the Navy. During his four years in the Navy, Chappelle was never stationed on the ground. He lived on the USS Enterprise at sea from January 2005 to September 2008. "When I first got out, I was really depressed," he said. "There was a lot on my mind. I wasn't sleeping, had a lot of anxiety and wasn't sure what I was going to do. " Since off active duty, the paychecks stopped.

In a world of pre-fab mini-malls, where restaurants turn over annually, it?s pure pleasure to see a place that?s stood the test of time. Pecos Bill?s Bar-B-Q was built brick by brick by Bill Stenzel back in 1946 with a fabulous wood-burning oven as the cornerstone of this 10-by-10-foot space. He came from Oklahoma by way of Tennessee armed with family recipes, old school barbecue know-how and a desire to share his passion for slow-cooked Okie barbecue. His grandson Owen Stenzel and wife, Eva, carry on the tradition today and we?
