An upscale Walgreens is coming to Hollywood. As the first West Coast flagship store for the drugstore chain, the newest location on will feature a juice bar, soda fountain, sushi chef, a barista brewing caffeinated drinks and a selection of more than 700 wines. It's all part of an effort by the Deerfield, Ill., company to localize offerings at a time of increased competition from dollar stores and big-box retailers alike. "Trying to have the right offer for the right location is definitely what we are moving towards," said Bryan Pugh, a vice president of merchandising.

A new juice bar named Clover is set to open on La Brea on Thursday. The shop's main draw is its cold-pressed juices, each of which, it claims, will pack the nutritional equivalent of three pounds of produce. There will also be kombucha on tap, Stumptown coffee, wheatgrass shots and various cleanse programs for detoxification. The refrigerated food will be a mixture of sandwiches and salads made by Flore vegan cafe in Silver Lake as well as by chef Bruce Kalman (of the Churchill).

Clover , which debuted its first juice bar on La Brea in January, is now opening a take-away window at the Churchill on West 3rd Street (look for a Clover awning on the east side of the restaurant). Set to open March 11, the to-go Clover will offer cold-pressed juices, Stumptown coffee and salads and bites from Churchill executive chef Bruce Kalman, with vegan and vegetarian selections. Kalman's breakfast, lunch and "late night" options include: an egg sandwich with bacon, avocado, tomato jam and Grafton cheddar; Tuscan kale salad with Midnight Moon goat cheese, raisins and Meyer lemon vinaigrette; beet salad with wheat berries, quinoa, goat feta, greens and tarragon mustard vinaigrette; a Cubano with ham, Gruyere, pork belly and pickles; and pizza (including vegan and gluten-free)

There are two types of customers at George Burnett's juice shop in Vernal, Utah. The conservative kind pays $4.95 for a 16-ounce juice or smoothie. But call yourself a liberal? Get ready to shell out an extra dollar. Burnett figures it's a way to make a “very public” point about his thoughts on American fiscal policy. “Really what I'm focused on is the fiscal differences between big government, small government and liberal ways, as far as entitlements and spending,” he told KSL-TV Channel 5 in Salt Lake City.

A court hearing that will decide the fate of a proposal for a juice bar featuring exotic dancing has been postponed until Aug. 26. The hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday in Superior Court but was delayed. City officials have twice voted down an application by Waldon R. Welty to raze his adult bookstore in the 8100 block of Garden Grove Boulevard and construct a two-story cabaret that would feature nude dancers.

Plans to convert a former health spa in west Anaheim into an adult cabaret are sparking an angry response from nearby businesses, residents and even officials of neighboring Buena Park. An Anaheim hearing officer will rule no later than Thursday on whether the proposal for the business conforms with the city's zoning regulations and will therefore be allowed to open. The so-called nude juice bar would be at the former site of Imperial Health Spa, 2640 W.

An armed man robbed an Oxnard juice bar Sunday morning of an undisclosed amount of cash, authorities said. The gunman walked into Rebecca's Juice Bar in the 700 block of Oxnard Boulevard about 11:30 a.m. and ordered the lone employee to retrieve cash that was being stored in a back area of the business, according to Oxnard police. The robber fled in a late 1990s gray Dodge truck. No one was injured and authorities did not have a detailed description of the suspect.

The debate over a proposed nude juice bar will resume Tuesday, this time before the City Council. The council will consider a proposal to replace an adult bookstore and peep-show arcade with a juice bar featuring topless or nude women dancing before patrons as they sip nonalcoholic beverages. The proposal was rejected by the Planning Commission last month, but Waldon R. Welty, owner of A-Z Books on Garden Grove Boulevard, appealed that decision.

This contemporary condominium on the Venice boardwalk offers up-close ocean views through floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a rooftop deck that overlooks the beach. The newly constructed condo, situated between a hotel and a gift shop, is one of the few single-family residences among the boardwalk's retail establishments. The building's two units can be bought separately or together. "I love the mix of this beach community," says Frank Murphy, a Venice developer who lived in the building when it was a juice bar with apartments above.

They are considered risque dens of iniquity and have been bombed simply for providing a place where men and women can (gasp) talk to each other. Fruit juice bars may seem an unusual front line in Pakistan's war on Islamic militancy, but many of their owners feel deserving of combat pay these days for serving up cold smoothies. Although there haven't been any attacks for several months, fears linger and many people say they're aware that violence could come at any time.

On the eve of a Superior Court hearing to determine the fate of a businessman's plans for a juice bar that would feature exotic dancers, more than three dozen residents gathered at the steps of City Hall on Monday to support council members who voted against the proposal. A Superior Court judge has ordered the city to reconsider its denial of the proposal because zoning allows "adult activity" businesses in the area. A court hearing on the matter is scheduled for today.

I am sixtysomething and an avid swimmer. I use the pools in the local gyms and strongly disagree with dating coach David Wygant's statement that "gyms in L.A. are the worst places to meet people" ["Heart to Heart, Cupid Is Where You Find Him," Feb. 10]. "Did you swim competitively in high school or college?" I will ask as someone lingers after a series of laps. "You have a wonderful feel for the water" consistently works as a conversation starter -- and I'm happy to report I have an active social life as a result.
