An application for what is being described as the first upscale, late-night food delivery service will be the subject of a public hearing at Thursday's Newport Beach Planning Commission meeting. Jeff Reuter, owner of 3-Thirty-3 Waterfront restaurant in Newport Beach, intends to fill the food nighttime niche with Dry Dock, which would deliver "fall-off-the-bone" barbecue throughout Newport and also serve dine-in customers along Mariner's Mile. "There are a lot of people doing dinner later these days than ever before," Reuter said Tuesday.

IRVINE — A punk when she attended University High School here, Rachel Klemek has always been allured by the subversive. Growing up in the South, and later in Irvine, she remembers not understanding the concept of cooking or enjoying food. Her childhood memories are of sitting in front of the television with saltines or relishing a Styrofoam cup of Top Ramen. "I didn't even know what butter was," Klemek said. However, to Klemek, countering her family's own culture — which never revered food — for a life of decorating cakes and perfecting hand-made marshmallows couldn't be more punk rock.

Seriously? Thursday is Thanksgiving? I don’t see how that’s possible. But it is, apparently, and you and I and just about everyone will have to deal with it. Checking the T-Day folder, we find that in years past we have done the history of Thanksgiving; how to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner; how not to; how to prepare a traditional Italian Thanksgiving dinner; and what to do with T-Day leftovers. This year, given everything that’s going on in the nation and the world, it is time to examine what Thanksgiving really means, why it matters, and what we need to keep in mind as we approach another annual day of thanks.

One of the great things about going to the Orange County Fair is you get to do abnormal things like eat fish and chips at 10:30 a.m. The Crutchfields Fish & Chips stand offers a fish and chips value meal for $5.75 that includes a large piece of fried fish, a strip of fried zucchini, French fries and a small drink (we substituted it with bottled water). You're given a choice of tartar sauce, ranch dressing and ketchup. The fried parts are crispy, the meaty parts are soft, and even at 10:30 in the morning the meal is indulgent.

W e've all had the experience of walking into a Chinese restaurant and being handed a menu that looks exactly like the menu in every other Chinese restaurant we've been to: egg rolls, wonton soup, kung pao chicken, moo shu pork, sweet and sour shrimp, you know the drill. Mandarin Restaurant in Fountain Valley has all that, but also some intriguing, authentic dishes that will titillate the tongues of adventurous diners. These dishes are classics in China but less well known here except among the Asian community.

IRVINE — Thousands of young Orange County residents will volunteer long hours this week as they go "Scouting for Food" to feed the hungry and homeless. Through Nov. 6, members of Orange County chapters of the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A will be dropping off informational "Scouting for Food" door hangers to homeowners and manning posts outside more than 40 Vons locations in an effort to collect enough food for 1 million meals. Residents may have already begun to see door hangers at their homes — signs that the scouts have passed by and will be returning Saturday for what they hope will be a donation to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.
