In the last year or so, Blue Hen (a Vietnamese spot) and the expanded Auntie Em's Kitchen added some options.

IT was just a breezeway, leading from businesses to parking spaces in the back. For one Eagle Rock tenant, Pilates instructor Mary-Ascension Saulnier, however, the flagstone pathway had to provide another kind of passage.

One of the Southland's most venerable alfresco theater institutions, Occidental Theater Festival, is rebounding this year after a dormant summer of 1997. The festival is returning to Occidental College's Remsen Bird Hillside Theatre in Eagle Rock, though its resources are somewhat reduced from its previous level of activity. The venue was dark last summer for the first time since the festival began in 1960. College cost-cutting eliminated most of last year's festival subsidy.
