As rivalries go, it's not up there with the Dodgers and the Giants or even Donald Regan and Nancy Reagan.

By all accounts, West Hollywood showered its employees with generosity. The city spent $2,070 at the Beverly Center for six Montblanc pens, given to workers who had reached employment milestones. An additional $1,500 went to Gelson's Market gift cards for city employees. One credit card in the city manager's office, used by various employees, accumulated $121,000 over three years.

But on Friday, the only residents who stopped by were those who wanted a last glimpse of the charred remains of the 40-year-old restaurant at 1400 W. Olive Ave. Don's had exploded and gone up in flames early that morning. "It's like a funeral wake," said Burbank Fire Capt.

Splash, the tony Malibu restaurant that Los Angeles police investigators charged was an organized-crime front, should have its liquor license revoked because of a cover-up of its true ownership, according to a proposed decision by an administrative law judge. "It is still not clear just who owns how much of the business," Administrative Law Judge W.F. Byrnes said in a three-page proposed ruling, dated Oct. 12 and made public Thursday by the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Since Jan. 17, Ben Caputo has been playing the waiting game. The co-owner of the landmark Sterling's Restaurant in Sunland gets asked almost every day whether he will reopen the business that has hosted hundreds of wedding receptions, civic club meetings and community events. Each time the question is answered the same: He doesn't know. He's waiting--waiting for inspectors; waiting for insurance agents; waiting, waiting, waiting. "Down the line, everybody suffers, everybody hurts," Caputo said.

Splash, a fashionable Malibu restaurant which Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl F. Gates once alleged was a conduit for laundering drug money, has been ordered by the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Department to surrender its liquor license by May 24. ABC Director Jay Stroh said he made the decision to revoke the license "based on our independent investigation" that almost half of Splash's stock was transferred to two individuals with criminal records without his agency's knowledge.

Promoting a restaurant in the remote Tejon Pass wasn't easy, but the "Okie Girl" went at it with aspirations higher than her hairdo. Mary Lynn Chess, 54, who opened the Okie Girl barbecue restaurant and brewery in 1990 alongside Interstate 5 about 70 miles north of Los Angeles, could turn everything from a minor skirmish with a state agency to a local look-alike contest into a media event.

A Burbank landmark was destroyed Tuesday morning when a blaze burned down the Castaway restaurant atop the Verdugo Hills, gutting the business noted for its breathtaking hillside view and prompting an arson investigation. "Some things are suspicious about this fire," said Burbank Fire Capt. Steve Patterson. A dog trained to detect 18 types of incendiary liquids led arson investigators to a can of the type that usually contains paint, Patterson said.

Restaurants in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County were ordered Tuesday to establish no-smoking areas, but owners will be allowed to decide how much space to set aside. The law, which won final, unanimous approval from the Board of Supervisors, assigns the county Health Department primary responsibility for enforcement. Sheriff's deputies could also be called in if the situation merited, Chief Administrative Officer Richard B. Dixon said.
