HealthCare Partners Medical Spa, a clinic for rejuvenating skin treatments, celebrated its one-year anniversary last week with a little star power. In addition to a spread of hors d'oeuvres and chilled vitaminwater, spa guests were treated to first-hand advice from fashion model Eva Pigford, who won "America's Next Top Model" in 2004, during the television show's third season.

Burger boutique. That's the best way to describe the new Eden Burger Bar in Glendale. Just like on Rodeo Drive, chic surroundings beckon, lovely assistants provide excellent service, and beautiful products, in this case hamburgers, tempt. When it comes to burgers, I steer clear of the build-it-yourself places. I like to leave it to creative and talented chefs to come up with good combinations under the bun. At Eden Burger Bar, they've engineered nine very different artisan burgers (all $10)
