A star turn performance and exquisite production values make "Tea at Five" a sure-fire hit at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank. Stephanie Zimbalist, known for her 94-episode run as Laura Holt on the "Remington Steele" television series, brings to life legendary Oscar-winner Katharine Hepburn with an uncanny air in this single actor bio-play. Of course the physical likeness and Hepburn's trademark vocal quality and inflections are on display, but Zimbalist's power lies in her ability to fully inhabit Hepburn's devil-may-care personality.

I met them in the Officers' Club. Although, because of its state of disrepair, it could hardly be called a club; the week prior it had taken a hit from a wayward rocket meant for the airfield. My shyness did not keep our distant but similar worlds apart. I was immediately attracted to their boisterous gregariousness and broad smiles. They were rogue warriors, SAS (Strategic Air Service) from Australia, and were considered to be the best of the best. The Viet Cong called them Ma Rung , (phantoms of the jungle)

Although I’m a confirmed coffee addict, there’s nothing better than a steaming hot mug of tea on a cold winter night. Blame my great grandmother from Leeds, England, I suppose. Nevertheless, I will join many hundreds of thousands of my fellow Americans next week in mailing perfectly good bags of tea to Washington, D.C. By now you’ve probably received one of many versions of an e-mail appeal to join the upcoming TEA (Taxed Enough Already) parties scheduled for noon, April 15 at city halls across America.

Favorite Place restaurant is a kind of wonderful enigma. Is it an elegant tea room or is it a quaint lunch place? Is it a spot for finger food or hearty sandwiches? The answer is, it is both. Plus, it is completely unique. Favorite Place, nestled among little storefronts down a side street off Brand Boulevard in downtown Glendale, has been a not-so-secret secret to customers for years. Signs in the window boast multiple Best of Glendale awards, mainly for Most Romantic Restaurant.

In Beirut there is a manaish restaurant about every fourth apartment building, says Shaunt Adessian, chef and owner of Shanto’s Bakery. Lebanese residents have these savory flatbreads pretty much every morning. I can see why. After trying Shanto’s various offerings, I’m totally hooked. I am now on a mission to try each and every manaish and wrap. I’ve tried 10 so far. Told you I love this place. The secret to their beguiling appeal is in the oven. Shaunt brought his iron, spindly legged contraption over from Lebanon.

The myth is that lemmings are mindless creatures that jump off cliffs to their deaths because they are, ironically, rodent copy-cats, each following the being in front of them even to their own demise. But that’s not exactly true. Scientists tell us that many Republicans and virtually all “tea party” followers probably have the same follow-the-spin, mindless propensity that biologists used to think caused the lemmings to march to their own ends. Turns out, lemmings self-thinned their own herds when their groups became overpopulated.
