Aloha to the Lava Lounge, which celebrates its ninth birthday tonight with its annual hot Lava Luau. Senor Amor is DJ, so you know Cupid's gonna be in the hiz-ous. We hear that the downtown Standard hotel's hottest scene is Sunday afternoon, when DJs spin on its rooftop. Top that. Punk of the Week award goes to Greg Hetson. I ran into the Bad Religion guitarist in Ventura at the Vans Warped Tour.

But you'd be wrong - very, very wrong. Arcadia is where you'll find twentysomethings hanging out at recently opened gastropubs, young families walking to nearby parks, mini-malls with pizzerias and dive bars featuring Skee ball and foosball. This might sound like Los Angeles, but one glimpse of a helmet-less biker cruising down Campbell Avenue and you'll know you aren't in California.

WHEN we first started this beat about 15 years ago, the scene wasn't much of a scene.
