Lindsay Sandham "Playing with Pies" sounds like a pie-eating contest I can win, so I sign up at the Orange County Fair. All I have to do is a eat a big slab of pie really fast. That's how I eat pie at Coco's, so it should be no problem. I wear a skirt with an expandable waistband. I tie up my hair in a ponytail. I skip lunch. But as I wait for the event to begin, I am nervous. Like the barf-o-rama scene in the movie "Stand By Me," I'm afraid someone will vomit and it will be contagious.

Question: My daughter is 4-foot-7, and weighs 132 pounds. She also has high blood pressure and reflux. I've been trying to cut back on sugar drinks and fried food. Can you suggest any other changes to her eating plan to help? Answer: It's great that you're working on improving your daughter's diet! Cutting back on sugared drinks and fried food is a good way to start. Sugared drinks are the largest source of added sugars in children's diets. They add many calories, but little or no nutrition.

Sue Doyle NEWPORT BEACH -- When it comes to eating out, it's always the meal that makes the night. But dining by waterfront automatically turns the evening into something far more elegant. Still, there's a hierarchy among ocean views that will make people wait in lines or call in advance to reserve tables. The view, like a fine wine, completes a meal. "Most people come down here for the view. It's our No. 1 selling point," said Kristin Wojcik, general manager of The Rusty Pelican on Coast Highway.

Here's a day in the life of an intrepid community news reporter turned loose in the state capital. A tip for anyone visiting Sacramento -- not the place to break in a new pair of shoes. 8 a.m.: Arrive breathless and eager at state Capitol building to get media credentials to attend Assembly session; realize no one here officially starts the day until at least 9 a.m. Get coffee. 9 a.m.: Begin the "journey of 1,000 stairways" and frequently become lost in the maze-like Capitol, which has two separate wings.

Mathis Winkler COSTA MESA -- When Peter Vash starts talking about the holidays, it's easy to think that the season of joy is the most depressing time of the year. "Frustration, disappointment, loneliness, time constraints -- these are all emotions associated with the holidays that cause people to feel lonely and depressed," Vash said. But Vash's views don't mean that he's trying to become a real-life Grinch. As a doctor at the Costa Mesa branch of Lindora Medical Clinics, which specialize in weight-loss programs, he's simply trying to raise awareness that overeating is a real danger for many people during the holidays.

Tony Altobelli What's a young man to do? In the world of community college men's water polo, being 6-feet-even and weighing 150 pounds is relative to Spud Webb in the NBA, but Orange Coast College freshman Kevin Becker is trying to change the situation. "I'm telling you, I eat and eat and eat nonstop," Becker said with a laugh. "I eat anything that moves. It's not working. It's my metabolism, I guess." What he lacks in physical size, this Newport Harbor High product more than makes up in heart and determination for the Pirates.

It was not "Mad Men" protagonist Don Draper's name or profession that viewers learned first. It was his drink of choice: "Do this again - old-fashioned, please. " Whether meeting clients or dining with his wife, Megan, that's what the advertising executive was seen reaching for. Guests with a similar preference can visit Mesa, which counts the Mesa Old Fashioned among its bestsellers, between March 2 and 8.

The only thing I needed to focus on for the next four minutes or so was the boysenberry pie from Knott's Berry Farm in front of me. Well, half a pie. Half pie, full pie. It didn't matter.

Coca-Cola has an ad campaign that confronts what it calls the "complex challenge of obesity. " In the campaign, Coke notes that of its more than 650 beverages, there are more than 180 low- or no-calorie drinks. Most of the full-calorie drinks also have "healthful options," which usually means a diet version sweetened with something artificial. A 12 oz. can of Coke has 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar. Not horrible, but not great either, particularly when we consider what is not being consumed instead of the soda.

A popular Eastside Costa Mesa restaurant has expanded into Newport Beach with a menu geared toward the grab-and-go surf crowd. Eat Chow's new location - described by owner Brian McReynolds as "modern Californian cuisine, like a gastropub with Mexican food" - on 62nd Street in West Newport is having an invite-only, grand-opening party Thursday to celebrate. The restaurant is Eat Chow's second, the first being at Newport Boulevard and 18th Street, which opened about four years ago. A soft opening in Newport was held April 23. So far, the response has been positive, McReynolds said.
