Tucked on a corner in Eagle Rock, across a side street from a pink diner with its own towering billboard, the brown bungalow doesn't look like much. Its roof is beginning to tatter, there's nearly no parking, and the few tables outside are made from old doors painted and put on their sides in one last stop before the scrap yard. (Actually a nice, colorful touch.) Larkin's, which bills itself as “a contemporary soul food joint,” is like visiting Grandma's house, with its scuffed wood floors and cozy rooms and big windows, and its smells of cornbread and frying chicken.

A painting transforming the limestone karst towers that jut out of Vietnam's Halong Bay into a red and yellow fever dream hangs on the wall of an Eagle Rock restaurant named for the bay. A fountain in the center of the dining room tries to evoke the sound of water slapping on the massive spires, but mainly serves to lure toddlers who really, really want to splash their hands through the falling streams. Bathing toddler notwithstanding, Halong Bay is a quiet eatery with clean lines and a beckoning menu of French and Vietnamese cuisines.

They made it clear to event organizers that they couldn't host a game -- St. Francis, after all, doesn't have a field -- before the two-plus week affair began, Golden Knight Coach Mike Solar said.

Sang Lee HOOVER HIGH -- After losing nine seniors from last year's squad, Glendale High boys' basketball Coach Steve Snodgress had many questions going into the summer season. He might have found some answers after his team's 48-28 victory over a short-handed Eagle Rock squad in a Hoover High Summer League contest on Tuesday at Hoover High. "I'm happy with the summer. I honestly think we have seven players that can go in and play tough. Everyone has to step up for us to compete in the Pacific League," Snodgress said.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- To the victors go the spoils - and the right to hoist their colors. Such is the case at Glendale's eastern gateway, where theVentura (134) Freeway intersects with the Glendale (2) Freeway. The backdrop is the San Rafael Hills for those headed east and the Glendale skyline for those traveling west. That scenic view will have another feature now -- three steel poles, 85 to 95 feet tall, and the lighted flags of the United States, California and Eagle Rock.
