I have a pet peeve: I am dumbfounded by people who steal the little packets of Splenda from coffee houses and restaurants. You all know who you are. And I'm willing to bet that many of you are acquainted with one or two of society's greatest slight-of-hand artists. They are the ones who get a cup of coffee and then, when no one is watching, will grab 20 or 30 little yellow packets and drop them in their bag or stuff them in a pocket. The more creative ones will gingerly wrap them in a napkin before exiting stage right.

What do you think of when you hear, “weekday hotel breakfast?” I pictured cereal, see-through coffee and a tray of crumbs with one decrepit Danish that could double as a paperweight. Apparently, I need to get up earlier or stay in better places. Never having had to book a room in either Burbank, where I live, or Glendale, which I can walk to, I was surprised to learn that two viable options for a savory breakfast included the Courtyard Marriott in Burbank and Glendale’s Embassy Suites — each offers a made-to-order omelet and waffle station.

A buffet lunch at the Glendale Hilton After a delightful play session with Yin and Yang, my friend Judie's Siamese kittens, Judie said, "Time for lunch. I am taking you girls to my new favorite lunch spot." My daughter Gretchen asked, "Where's that?" Judie replied, "The Glendale Hilton." I said, "You're kidding?" For years, the hotel, at the corner of Brand and Glenoaks in Glendale, has experimented with chefs and restaurants at a dizzying pace with unpredictable, inconsistent results.

Karen S. Kim DOWNTOWN -- For owner Kevin Aksacki, Gauchos Village Churrascaria on Brand Boulevard is a little slice of home. The Brazilian barbecue buffet is decorated with animal skins, wooden beams, thatched awnings, stained glass lighting and ornaments that were imported from his farm town back in Brazil. The marinades and cooking methods for the restaurant's foods are based on the recipes of Aksacki's mother. "I brought a lot of things from home to this place," said Aksacki, 33. "I feel at home here.

Eighth-grader Michelle Littlefield was having a challenging time serving bread rolls Monday at the end of the Thanksgiving buffet she and her classmates organized at Holy Redeemer School. Competing with turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing on the buffet line, organized by the La Crescenta Pioneer Club, was a tall order. “Maybe because I’m last and they don’t have room on their plates,” Littlefield said. A few dozen seniors were treated to the 14th consecutive Thanksgiving Day feast Monday at Holy Redeemer School.

Saturday afternoon was a flurry of activity as young men and women across the Foothills prepared for the social finale to the school year – the Crescenta Valley High School senior prom. The prom was held last weekend at the Wallis Annenberg Hall near the California Science Center in Los Angeles. More than 700 prom tickets were sold to the formal event that started in mid-afternoon at the high school gym. But, prior to the formal festivities, Montrose’s Merle Norman was the place to be for finishing touches on the many princesses for a day. Kelly Shaftel, 17, a senior at CV High, was surrounded by family and friends as Merle Norman co-owner Kris Kline applied foundation and eyeliner to the young woman.

My husband and I took the kids to Las Vegas over their winter break from school. Some of you might think it's crazy to take two 7-year-olds to Sin City, but our son wanted to see the sights and we thought that a couple of nights wouldn't morally corrupt him too much. When you have small kids, you don't stay at the hottest hotels or go to the clubs (not that we ever did before). We stayed at an extended-stay hotel far from the Strip so we wouldn't be in the midst of the noise and chaos.

As years go, 1984 turned out a lot better than George Orwell's vision had it. In American film, it was a lull between the stylistic breakouts of the '60s and early '70s and the commercial mushrooming of indie films in the late '80s. It also marked the release of three comedies that would never have been made in Hollywood, except they were. "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai," steeped in hip deadpan irony, was released by Fox; "This Is Spinal Tap" was distributed by Embassy, divisions of which were soon to be batted around from owner to owner; and Alex Cox's "Repo Man" was courtesy of Universal.

The Chinese buffet looms large in certain circles. Bodybuilders blog about how to load up on protein, with articles like “A guide to getting huge on the cheap.” For obesity researchers, the Chinese buffet is the mecca of behavior analysis, where they discover obese customers are more likely to sit facing the food and less likely to use chopsticks than are normal-weight diners. And for the rest of us? We tend to fall into two camps: the squeamish and the ravenous. Those who wouldn't eat sushi from a buffet line if Nobu Matsuhisa himself inspected it first, and those who throw elbows to be the first to grab from a replenished tray of yellowtail.

Founders of a new symphony orchestra believe their varied programming will make it a success in a city that already has two orchestras, despite a poor economy. The inaugural concert of the Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra is Jan. 9 at the First Baptist Church of Glendale. The program highlights are Bach’s Prelude from Violin Partita No. 3 in E Major; Symphony for String Orchestra and Timpani by Edward Mirzoyan; and the world premiere of Andante Dolente & Scherzo for Two Cellos and String Orchestra by Andrey Rubtsov.

It was a sweet night last Saturday when the Crescenta Valley Arts Council presented its first Soul, Sweets & Stanzas event at the La Crescenta Woman’s Club. The classical jazz band New West Guitar Quartet played in the background early in the evening as people greeted each other, then made their way over to a bountiful dessert buffet. At 7:30, guests were directed to take their seats as poet Jack Cooper officially opened the festivities. Cooper, whose first formal collection of poems, “Across My Silence,” was recently published, read one of his pieces to start the poetry portion of the evening.
