A raw, vegan and organic restaurant called Mooi is being built in the corner space of the Jensen Rec Center at Sunset Boulevard and Logan Street in Echo Park. Party promoter Stephen HauptfÃ¼hr began a raw, vegan catering company after hosting dinner parties and realizing that his talents were in demand. It wasn't long before he began contemplating opening a restaurant. Mooi is set to open by the holidays. The ground floor and main dining room (there will be private dining on the mezzanine)

When I saw gluten-free Joe-Joe's chocolate sandwich cookies on my last trip to Trader Joe's, I thought I'd check out some chocolate options. I easily found six in supermarkets. They're all pretty good, and some are much better than that. As is often the case, it's the consistency that differentiates these gluten-free baked foods from those made with wheat flour. But the chocolate helps. It's a strong flavor and helps to compensate for flavors our palates might not be accustomed to. Of course, for people with celiac disease, that's a small price to pay, when the tiniest bit of gluten can mean a week or more of illness.

Motorola Inc. said it filed a countersuit against Qualcomm Inc., alleging that Qualcomm violated some provisions of licensing agreements between the companies. Qualcomm last month sued Motorola in federal court in San Diego, seeking to end Motorola's right to license Qualcomm's code division multiple access technology. In its counterclaim, Motorola contends that Qualcomm breached the royalty-sharing part of a 1990 license agreement involving CDMA, the world's second-most-popular cellular phone technology.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . Yes you can survive on six cookies, a chicken breast and a can of peas. Day 1 of the Cookie Diet, and I must say I was a little hungry through the day but the hardest parts were not fighting the pangs, but resisting the smells and opportunities all around me. The first came from the trendy hipster ice cream truck sitting outside my office when I got in to work.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight-loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . Got lucky and got to take exactly who I wanted on a nice Valentine's Day dinner Monday night. We had the most interesting conversation, several shots of whiskey, and yes, America, some dishes that were going to help me get neither fit nor trim. RELATED: Two guys lose weight: The journey A while back, I remembered that she was inspired while at a yoga studio.

Kevin Kline's prissy, stentorian-voiced Henry Harrison, a playwright manqué who lives in a seedy apartment in a Manhattan brownstone, explains to his new roommate, Louis ( Paul Dano), that he is an "extra man" who has cultivated the city's richest widowed grande dames and won a place at their tables and sometimes their Palm Beach guest rooms. What lifts him above a mere "walker," he says, is his "wit, intelligence and uncommon joie de vivre ." An enigmatic eccentric, Henry does in fact possess these qualities, and the deft ways in which Kline mines the comic valor in the man anchors writers-directors Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman's wryly comic "The Extra Man."

On Thanksgiving, the folks at Cafe Gratitude feel that everybody else has finally caught on. At Cafe Gratitude, plates are printed with the question that goes around many holiday tables: "What are you grateful for?" And each day at Cafe Gratitude, there is a question of the day - a practice some find too precious for words and some take as a nudge to live mindfully. Thursday's question was the obvious: "What are you grateful for?" "We're supposed to be grateful 365 days a year," said Ryland Engelhart, one of the owners of the chain of Cafe Gratitude restaurants and the company's chief inspiration officer.
