Burgers are back
The Burgers Never Say Die crew is getting behind the stove again, popping up for one day only at Glendale Tap this Sunday, June 10. The plan is to start up around 1 p.m. when the bar opens and go until all 400 burgers are sold out. It’s the usual backyard menu, with $7 double cheeseburgers, chips, and drinks. The event is 21-and-up only (given that it’s at a bar) and cash only. 4227 San Fernando Road in Glendale.
Ojai beers news

Changes are afoot at Jitlada, the Thai Town staple that many people love. The restaurant will be closed today and tomorrow for some light retouching.
