  • PETA wants to turn Elvis Presley's former ranch into a Don't Be Cruel center

     
    When we think of Elvis Presley, we think of one thing: animal rights. Right? Not really. But if PETA gets its way, the two could soon become synonymous. That's because the controversial group is trying to lease one of Elvis'......
  • Enough pie to reach the sky in KCRW contest

     
    Bring on the pie! And the pie ... and the pie. One hundred and fifty pies. Sour cream apple blueberry. Apple and more apple in every variation, including one with bacon and smoked paprika. Lots of pumpkin pies (no surprise......
  • Theater review: 'Noises Off' at A Noise Within

     
    Producing “Noises Off,” Michael Frayn’s 1982 farce within a farce, is not for the faint of heart. The show calls for a dauntingly elaborate set, massive set changes over two intermissions, and a serendipitous conjunction of director, actors,...
  • Pie and pie and more pie. And still more pie. And cake for Thanksgiving

     
    Key lime pie for Thanksgiving? Banana cream? Lemon meringue? Cake of any sort? These all sort of baffle Susan Sarich, the owner of SusieCakes bakery. She's a purist, and her shop expects to sell about 500 apple, pecan and pumpkin......
  • Banana Republic’s New Blues

     
    I love perusing Banana Republic for certain things -- argyle socks, merino wool sweaters, jewel toned and patterned blouses and occasionally some really cute sandals or boots, but denim? Not so much. But now that the premium denim bubble has......
  • Elvis' 75th birthday celebration at the Egyptian this weekend

     
    Elvis Presley left the building, cosmically speaking, at the young but bloated age of 42. Had he been an avid jogger and into juice fasts instead of pills, he just may have celebrated his 75th birthday this week. In his absence, Angelenos can gather at...
  • Let the snacking backlash begin! (Please?)

     
    Perhaps someone -- one brave soul committed to the cause -- just needs to take a stand. Doctors? Public health officials? Pfft. What kind of credibility do they have? They're not the ones doling out the snacks. A mom is......
  • Marijuana seized in banana shipment at San Diego border crossing

     
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in San Diego found more than $1 million worth of marijuana hidden in a shipment of bananas at the Mexico border, officials said Wednesday. A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the shipment Monday when......
  • Statuesque: Where to shop when you're super-tall

     
    Plus-size and petite clothing is fairly easy to find these days -- particularly "basics." But there's a third body type that's also difficult to shop for -- and is under-represented in the marketplace: extra-tall, thin women. It may sound silly.......
  • 'Tasteful Pictures' at the Getty

     
    Food bloggers, listen up. Before cyberspace became a glut of cupcake close-ups and high-res meditations on bacon, our photographic forefathers broke ground by daring to shoot food with behemoth camera equipment. Pay homage to history with the exhibit...
  • Snowshoeing down Vermont's Snow Road

    There are two ways to deal with a New England winter: Fight it, try to avoid it, stay indoors as much as possible and complain about it incessantly until it is over. Or give the season a big hug, and play in the snow every minute you can. I had...
