Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Investigation can’t find source of food-borne illness outbreak at Beaumont baby shower

Too many kinds of food were prepared by too many different people for health officials to determine what exactly is to blame for 33 people getting sick after a baby shower in Beaumont in January.

Eating Cheap in Paris: 8 dinners for €15 or less

Paris has a reputation for being romantic, fashionable, and as most are quick to add, expensive. While the food is almost always quite good, a nice dinner in the City of Lights can run up quite a tab. We highly recommend treating yourself to a classic French meal at least once during your stay, but for those other nights when you’d like to reign in your budget, it’s wise to have a few cheap and delicious options in mind. And remember, if you want to splurge, you can always go for a nice prix-fix...

There’s nothing like eating freshly-caught fish with the scent of the sea as an accompaniment.

Stockholm: When (and when not) to tip in Sweden

Traveling from the US to Europe, it’s easy to fall into the same tipping habits you use back home, like handing over 20 percent at a restaurant without even really thinking about it. The tipping culture throughout Europe varies quite a bit from Paris to Amsterdam, and Sweden is no different. And a trip to Stockholm can add up fast if you don’t watch your budget. There are plenty of free museums in Stockholm and some great budget hotels, but everything else, from restaurants to taxis, will be hig...
