GLENDALE — Bob’s Big Boy is considering a move back to the city where it all began. City officials have contacted the now-Michigan-based restaurant chain about a possible new location in Glendale, where founder Bob Wian opened the original Bob’s Big Boy on Colorado Street in 1937. Glendale has since lost its assortment of Bob’s Big Boy locations, with the final restaurant at 1407 W. Glenoaks Blvd. closing in March after store owners failed to renew a franchise agreement with the company.

The company sold or closed four of its five locations, and brought much of that merchandise to Burbank for a liquidation sale in its Burbank location, which they intended to close or sell.

One Burger King in Glendale wants its customers to have it their way - right to their front door. Since April 9, the Burger King on North Central Avenue has been delivering a handful of orders each day - the first Burger King in the state to do so, said franchise owner Bob Stevens.

Following in the footsteps of delivery programs in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Houston, the fast-food company is bringing its delivery program to California.

There's a secret spot in the Americana with a wicked hamburger and a mean Mai Tai. You won't find it street side as you wander down shopping lanes. You probably won't see it from the fountain or green. No, this hidden gem is up three escalators, past mannequins bearing high-end children's clothing, tucked into a corner on the upper floor of Nordstrom. Bar Verde is a bastion of low-key elegance and unostentatious quality with a distinctive Seattle vibe. Warm wood paneling, flattering vintage lighting, private booths and cool alternative music define the dining room.

In City Council chambers packed with about 100 people, Glendale council members said they were not fazed by a lawsuit filed last week in federal district court asking a judge to remove a city statue honoring women victimized by the Japanese Army during World War II. The statue isn't going anywhere, they added. “I think the lawsuit will be put to bed very quickly and we can move on and we can be proud of this statue,” said Councilwoman Laura Friedman, noting that she was glad the statue has focused international attention on Glendale and the women honored by the 1,100-pound memorial in Central Park.

When I was a little kid, my father was an executive with Pan American Airways. I would sometimes get to tag along on his business lunches in Manhattan. I remember linen tablecloths, waiters in neat clothes and a table full of men's hands holding amber-colored liquid in short glasses. I knew it was elegant and special and important that I behave. There is something of that feeling at Glendale's venerable Far Niente. These days, it's easy to get caught up in the latest food trend. Places like Far Niente with their old-school service and time-tested menu items might get forgotten by the cognoscenti.

The last employees left Technicolor's 40,000-square-foot lab in Glendale on Friday, as the film and post-production giant shifts into the digital age and shutters its local operation, where employees processed film. The closure cost 39 people their jobs in an area of the city known as the “Creative Corridor,” which spans 700 acres sandwiched between Los Angeles and Burbank, said Claude Gagnon, president of Technicolor Creative Services. Technicolor Inc. moved about 100 film-processing jobs to Glendale in March 2011 , calling its proximity to DreamWorks Animation and Disney's Creative Campus along the corridor - “a bright spot in an otherwise stagnant economy” at the time.
