It could have been a sophisticated nightclub in the 1930s or '40s with comfortable lounge seating, creative cocktails to quaff and a crooner singing American Songbook classics - but it wasn't. Instead it was a “Knight” club, and the cocktail was called a “Marti-ni” named for Fr. Tony Marti, president of St. Francis High School. -- JANE NAPIER NEELY covers the La Cañada social scene.

Christmas arrived, suddenly, on the day after Thanksgiving. Over at Trader Joe's, the entrance display included hundreds of fresh wreaths and garlands. The holidays are back, and so are cocktails. My personal repertoire consists of only three. They are the gin and tonic, the traditional old-fashioned and an exact copy of the Ruth's Chris Moscow Mule. Not counting prep time, it takes more than 10 minutes to make each drink. A real bartender might be faster, so the Biltmore's Gallery Bar is safe from competition, for now. We were at the Biltmore hotel in downtown Los Angeles to attend the Los Angeles County Bar Assn.

Some of them were daunted when Chef Peter George picked up a 10-inch knife to demonstrate how to de-vein and slice shrimp into thin strips for the "Vodka Marinated Springroll Martini" appetizer, but soon the 10 cooking students relaxed, laughed and learned new cooking techniques at the California School of Culinary Arts' first of a series of one-day cooking classes, "Dinner for Eight Made Simple." "If you can boil water, you can cook anything," said George, an instructor at CSCA who is accredited by Le Cordon Bleu, the world's most recognized culinary authority.

Here, there and everywhere, it is looking like Christmas around our community. I love the bright light displays in people?s yards and also seeing a beautifully decorated Christmas tree on display in front of a big window. The kid in me just loves this time of the year. I hope that the dazzle of it never wears off. Talk about razzle-dazzle, the main street in the little neighboring village of Montrose is a wonderland of tiny white lights sprinkled in the trees lining Honolulu Avenue.
