Feet were tapping and heads were bobbing on Friday morning at Paradise Canyon Elementary School, as the four classes of second graders listened to Kokin Gumi, a three member Japanese musical group. Using traditional Japanese instruments and musical techniques, the musicians played contemporary compositions. Masakazu Yoshizawa delighted the students with his Japanese drums and flutes, which sounded like birds. The students were surprised, but smiled when he shouted, "ho," at peak percussion moments.

Men and women sipped bottomless margaritas as they played craps, black jack and roulette Saturday at the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge’s Second Annual Casino Night, held in the main room at the Chevy Chase Drive facility. Although Community Center board members and City Council members have voiced the need to earmark money for a new roof, and possibly a redesign of the center, money raised at the casino event will go toward expanding programs offered at the center, according to Community Center Executive Director Megan Nordvedt.

Winter will soon be behind us and spring will come. All over town, restaurateurs and mixologists are planning for their spring comeback. My first choice for a good meal is Café Sole, because the new owners, Salvatore and Alessandra Attanasio are lovely and the new menu is top notch. Salvatore bakes fresh bread several times a day. Sporadic specials include osso buco, Italian meatloaf and wonderful pastas. Great service. The Flintridge Proper introduced a daily Happy Hour, launched four new spring cocktails and posted most of the recipes online at www.theproper.com.
