Whether it’s for a Valentine’s getaway or not, everyone at some point in their relationship searches for that special place that has all the special touches, is easy to get to, and that will make just the right impression on the partner who will join you for this retreat from every- day living. Problem is, it can be a bit of a crapshoot making your selection. Everybody advertises with words like romantic and special, but not all getaways will measure up to your standards.

anita s. brenner Ever since the fire in the fish tank 12 minutes away from La Cañada at Cafe Eilat in Valley Village, I’ve been waking up too late. Too late to go to the morning service at Adat Ari El Synagogue (down the street from Cafe Eilat). Too late to go to the gym. Too late to get an Israeli breakfast (or at least Israeli coffee) at the cafe. I didn’t grow up eating Israeli food. I had never been to the Cafe Eilat until my friend Abe Sarna took me to breakfast at Cafe Eilat after the morning service at Adat Ari El Synagogue.

Volunteers and staff members inside the main room of Glendale’s largest homeless services provider flipped French toast, poured hot chocolate with marshmallows and dined with more than a dozen of the center’s clients, such as Herbert Barnes. Barnes, 39, has been a client at PATH Achieve for three years and reveled at the chance to take a break from the hectic din of everyday pressures.

Glendale Unified School District administrators flipped pancakes for staff Tuesday, part of an annual show of appreciation that had extra meaning during a year of budget challenges and added responsibilities for employees, Supt. Michael Escalante said. The breakfast was at the district’s administration center, where employees have borne the brunt of budget cuts and reductions that the school board has tried to keep away from classrooms, Escalante said. “Over the past several years when we’ve had challenges financially, more and more people are being asked to do more with less,” Escalante said.
