It was a balmy Monday evening in Glendale. We parked in the Orange Street parking garage so we could look for a book at Brand Books. We couldn't get through the former walkway (now fenced off and torn up for a $600,000 chess park). We cut through Kinko's and browsed the bookstore and bought a book. Strolled down Brand Boulevard and cut over to Maryland Avenue by Notte Luna (saw a "change of liquor license" sticker in window). From there, over to Maryland.

Forget Town Center! How about a Cavalia Center? At last, I have the perfect solution of what is to become of the so-called Town Center property in downtown Glendale. No, it's not Rick Caruso's Americana at Brand or an extension of the Glendale Galleria or any other such venture. It's simple! Just retain those beautiful, towering white tents remindful of exotic Persian tales -- and that wonderful, whimsical celebration of gorgeous horses and talented acrobats and gymnasts called Cavalia.

Josh Kleinbaum This much is known -- later this month, horses and acrobats will take over most of the near-vacant 15.5-acre lot in downtown Glendale, site of developer Rick Caruso's now-defunct Town Center proposal. But what will happen after Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type show with horses, is done with the site? Councilman Dave Weaver might have the best answer: "Who the hell knows?" City officials were scrambling to pick up the pieces one day after a $264.
