Six of Los Angeles' most prominent Jewish chefs are banding together to cook brunch for the first Project Chicken Soup awards ceremony Sunday at Temple Beth Am, 1039 S. La Cienega Blvd. The brunch is a tribute to Mollie Pier, co-founder of Project Chicken Soup. A longtime educator in the Los Angeles school system, Pier became an early supporter of Parents, Families and Friends of Gays and Lesbians after her son Nathaniel came out of the closet. He went on to become one of the first doctors treating people with AIDS , and after his death, Pier founded Project Chicken Soup , a volunteer organization that delivers free kosher meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses.

The company's hot rod is a slight departure from the work it usually churns out, because it wasn't built entirely in house and it isn't painted in red and white. The gold and white Roadster was designed by So-Cal's President Pete Chapouris and built in collaboration with Detroit Street Rods and Champions Moto in Costa Mesa.

Finally, half-hidden behind a clutch of palm trees and shrubs, the squat gray building of the Someone Cares soup kitchen comes into view. Clearly, we're on the wrong side of the tracks. Orange County people once hoped to leave those tracks behind, across the L.A. County line. But those days are long over.

Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, told CBS News . “They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors.” “The photo-op they did wasn't even accurate.

Whether your tailgate includes a custom grill setup and team color-coordinated tents or a simple picnic on a well-worn blanket, no pre-game ritual is complete without the spread.

This past weekend, I was in Minneapolis tailgating with friends for the University of Minnesota's homecoming game against the Northwestern Wildcats. We arrived at the parking lot Saturday morning around 8:30 to party before the 11 a.m. kickoff.
