Up on Sunset Boulevard, where they grow the billboards big and glossy, is a club called the Roxbury. It's big and glossy itself, a three-level affair with restaurant, jazz bar and discotheque under one roof. Owners Elie and Demitri Samaha, Chris Breed and Brad Johnson opened the club on a site that was Preston Sturges' Players' Club in the 1940s and most recently held the Imperial Gardens. The Roxbury doesn't keep getting national write-ups for its food nor its music.

Roxbury co-owner Elie Samaha tells of a Newport Beach accountant who travels by limo to the Roxbury in West Hollywood for dancing and dinner each weekend. To Samaha, that accountant is living proof that Orange County is starved for the special blend of food, music, dancing and people-watching that until recently was available only in L.A. Samaha hopes to satisfy that hunger with Friday's opening of a sister Roxbury at Hutton Centre in Santa Ana.

Build a party around it, and-- voila !--you end up with $20,000 in your coffers.

GARDEN OF ALLAH The Garden of Allah quickly became a hit with the Hollywood elite and visiting New York literati after silent-movie star Alla Nazimova converted her mansion at 8150 Sunset Boulevard into a hotel in 1927. The hotel had 25 bungalows and a pool, around which Robert Benchley supposedly uttered his immortal "let's get out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini." Trysts were consummated, starlets frolicked and the press amazingly left them alone.

So, how does a kid from Flint, Mich., the meat-and-potatoes heart of the country, become the doyen of nouveau Southwestern cuisine? "I guess I didn't know the rules when I started," says David Wilhelm. "I just started dabbling with Mexican foods and others of the region."

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Call it the curious case of Devin Ebanks, the reserve Lakers forward who remains in a bizarre limbo. He's not officially suspended by the team, but he's not playing either. He did not enter Friday's game against Memphis, logging his eighth consecutive DNP since being arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor DUI in Los Angeles in the early morning of Nov. 9. It's safe to say he has had a bad couple of weeks. He was called into the office after the arrest to meet with Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak.
