Papoo's Hot Dog Show, a Toluca Lake institution, closed its doors on Sunday. The restaurant caters to the "old Toluca Lake crowd," customers who regard this place as their neighborhood hangout where a person can get a hearty breakfast, a hot dog or a nice cold beer. Owner Leona Gardner said she decided to sell the restaurant because it needed more attention than she could give it, namely an extensive remodeling that she couldn't afford amid loss of profits from the economic downturn.

Regarding the accident at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, I find it appalling that there should be any question as to whether someone is injured enough to call paramedics. I also question what type of training the Traditional Equitation School employees have to be able to assess whether there are internal injuries, as in this girl's case? I board at LAEC and, since this incident, have made it clear to everyone who works in the area that if I am found on the ground, please do not hesitate to call 911. It is very disconcerting to think that this could have been me. It could have been a matter of life and death, and the time wasted by anyone's "assessment" could make that difference.

DineEquity Inc. isn't a name that would be familiar to most people, but they've probably eaten at one of the Glendale company's well-known restaurant chains: Applebee's and IHOP . The first International House of Pancakes opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, a family-friendly place that inspired the IHOP Corp. chain and introduced children to colored syrups and gooey, whipped-cream-covered chocolate-chip pancakes. That company acquired the larger Applebee's chain in 2007 and became DineEquity the following year.
