The Hard Rock Cafe co-founder credits Baba, his spiritual adviser, with persuading him to take a second run at the restaurant business after he flirted with retirement. "He said Hard Rock was high school," Tigrett recalled, "and now it's time to go on to the university."

In Laguna Beach, it's long been hard to tell the restaurants from the art galleries. With the opening of Cafe Zoolu, it just got harder. Cafe Zoolu doesn't just look like an art gallery, it really is a gallery, showcasing the work of Geri Kissler, the artist wife of chef/owner Lonnie Painter. Kissler chose the restaurant's catchy name for sentimental reasons; she once lived in Africa--and her multimedia works line the dining room walls.

Mexican-Style Square at Heart of City Revitalization Proposal The creation of a "zocalo," or a Mexican-style downtown square where people can mill about while mariachis stroll by, lies at the heart of an ambitious plan by a Pacoima developer to revitalize part of San Fernando's downtown commercial district.

The last we heard from chef Lisa Stalvey, she had just been asked to leave Schatzi on Main, the Santa Monica restaurant owned by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his wife, Maria Shriver. Stalvey was so devastated at having been terminated by the Terminator, she left the country to take a temporary job cooking at a large restaurant/nightclub in Reykjavik, Iceland. "What happened at Schatzi kind of destroyed me," says Stalvey, "but my stay in Iceland cured me."
