A while ago I thought I read about a bundt cake store opening in la. Am I crazy, or does one exist that only does bundt cakes?

Manhattan Beach breakfast for 30 people

I'm trying to get a breakfast for 30 people in Manhattan Beach or the vicinity. Can you recommend a spot that can accomodate a group of that size? Quality isn't as much of an issue...

Boba near Marina Del Rey?

Where can I get boba near Marina Del Rey? If not Marina Del Rey, then north of it.

Thanks.

Birthday catering idea--food we had when we were young

My wife's birthday is coming up and I had an idea of reminding her of her youth by taking her to places with food we had as kids--ie hot dogs, fun desserts, etc--but with an adult palate (ie, mac n' cheese with Lobster). Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be one place. Here's what I came up with:

Luna Park
Ketchup (they have sloppy joes)
Pink's
Simon LA -- for their desserts
Violet--for mac n' cheese (unless you can think of a place that has better mac n' cheese
Melting Spot -- grilled cheese sandwhiches
Sprinkles/Yummies--cupcakes

Any other ideas?

food events in San Diego

Are there any good food events in San Diego that get a collection of restaurants and give a sense of the culinary scene? I know there's Taste of the Nation in April and Food and Wine Festival in November... any other one's I'm missing??

no Piknic (Playa Vista)

I live in Playa Vista and it is a bit pricy, but they make great salads and lighter meals, including breakfast. Definitely worth a trip if you work nearby for their salmon/spinach salad.

Where can I get mochi balls?

Is there a place to buy the mochi balls they have at Pinkberrys? I assume a Japanese market but figured it was worth asking.

What's the deal with Sunset Beach on Sunset? I heard it opened only recently but drove by yesterday and it was closed.

Restaurant week--what's the appeal?

So I've read plenty of reviews of SDRW restaurants and I'm still confused aobut its appeal. You're limited in your dinner options and how much is a three course meal that costs $40 without drinks going to cost anyway?? $45? $50? Can anyone toss me a bone here?

Restaurant closings??

Did Tangerine on Sunset close? What about Table 8 on Melrose? Table 8 seemed to have all the hype and support a few years back... anyone know what happened?

BBQ fairs

Does LA have something similar to what you would find in the South in terms of a BBQ festival, where local pit masters compete and the public can sample what they offer?
