It was a day filled with errands, which left little time for lunch. My choice had to be strategic since time was precious, but I wasn’t looking for anything that came in a Styrofoam box. The plan was to sit for a bit, eat something quick and then move on to a haircut, shopping and other tasks I had waited too long to address. Fortunately, I eat lunch early to avoid the crowds and was able to sneak into the Corner Bakery CafĂ©. This is an immensely popular restaurant in Bella Terra.

Two glasses of water were overshadowed by four baskets filled with identical "skyscraper" pastrami sandwiches — exactly 12 ounces of meat straddled by rye bread and weighed for accuracy — that were the center of the eating competition Friday at Tommy Pastrami New York Delicatessen. Preparing himself to devour two sandwiches as quickly as he could, Daniel Fraley, 27, immediately took the crust off the rye bread and stuffed it into a small container of au jus. He and his competitor, Chris Staggs, 26, topped the enormous sandwiches with mustard and soaked it all in the au jus. Then they ate. The two stuffed pastrami and soggy rye bread into their mouths, using two hands, as friends, employees and customers cheered them on and shouted advice.

That jubilant scream reverberating through the city last Wednesday morning was my knee-jerk reaction to the boys' return to school. It was impossible to contain my excitement with the smell of freedom (my freedom!) permeating the air. It was cause for celebration -- but where? In the absence of any Wednesday morning champagne brunches, the festivities were delayed until dinnertime. But by the time the well-oiled machine of Ron, Beth and I had picked up two kids from baseball, two kids from soccer and one teenager from home, dining out was as much a time management necessity as a celebration.

John Volo My buddy Zach and I had been forced to lay low for the better part of a week. His son Jake was slowly recovering from tonsil removal, while my son Jake was adjusting to life with a full leg cast. The boys were in dire need of some fresh air and sunshine, while Zach and I were in dire need of someone to wait on us. So we loaded up the two Jakes in a wheelchair and a stroller and pushed them over to Alice's Breakfast in the Park. Idyllically perched above Lake Huntington in Central Park, Alice's serves not only breakfast and lunch, but also operates as a mini-bakery.

When I travel on my Harley Davidson motorcycle down two-lane roads in this country I seek out family-owned diners or restaurants. It has become a tougher goal the last 10 years. Chain restaurants like Denny's and IHOP have taken over the interstates and kept people off the smaller roads where the mom and pop places are found. The lack of traffic on the smaller roads has caused a lot of those places to close up. Some of them are still out there, but the search is definitely more difficult than it used to be. When I find one it is always like discovering a lost treasure.

Huntington Beach loves its history. Since my column a couple of weeks ago about my goal to locate old buildings as the first stage in trying to create a historic marker program around the city, I have received some truly fascinating emails from people regarding sites I had little or no knowledge about. I wanted to focus on one this week because it's a terrific example of how we regularly pass places that hide their histories well. For me there is always something compelling about a building or structure that has led different lives over the years, and here we have one that truly fits the bill.

I was introducing a friend to the joys of capicolla in the deli department at Lucci’s, when she spied a cash register in the back of the deli and market. She asked me what it was, and I told her that it was the restaurant. After getting a sample of the Italian spicy ham, she was ready to have some capicolla on a sandwich. This is a favorite lunch place of mine, though they serve into the dinner hour as well. Each day features a different bargain. Monday is all-you-can-eat spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread, and at $7.99 it is a perfect, simple dinner that would be ideal for families.
