Matt Grenert Adams Elementary School in Costa Mesa will hold its fourth annual Country Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 19. There will be games, prizes, hot dogs, face painting, raffles, a disc jockey and more. The community outreach event is sponsored by the school's PTA, along with local real estate agents and businesses. Students at the school are selling chocolate bars similar to "Willie Wonka Bars" to promote the fair. Inside some of the bars is a gold star, which will enter the person into a drawing to win one of five grand prize -- all-day passes to the fair or 10-hour passes.

A California assemblyman is inviting fire ring supporters to Huntington Beach on Sunday for another round of hot dogs. Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach) is hosting a rally from 4 to 7 p.m. at the pits at 21579 Pacific Coast Hwy. near Zack's.

The event comes days before the South Coast Air Quality Management District's July 12 hearing on proposed changes to Rule 444 that would create buffer zones between the rings and homes and allow greater local control.

DANETTE GOULET CORONA DEL MAR -- When residents moan about having nothing to do this summer, perhaps they should take a cue from the outsiders who are having a blast right here in their backyard. Summer is here and bonfires are blazing in the pits at Corona del Mar State Beach. But the majority of barbecuersseem to come from elsewhere. Many of the bonfires are crowded with various sects of church groups from Irvine, Riverside and even Texas. There's also a magnet school from the city of Orange that meets on the sandy shores every day during the summer months.

I hope to drop weight this summer. The Orange County Fair has other plans. I may as well wait until New Year's to break my resolution. The theme of the July 12 to Aug. 11 shindig is "Come & Get It. " The "It" to come and get is batter-slathered, deep-fried, bacon-wrapped and stick-stuck. This is, of course, why man discovered fire - and cardiologists. Fair folks on Tuesday released their annual list of food coma-inducing menu items to the media. Chicken Charlie again plans to serve dishes that warrant a scolding from Michelle Obama.

I am a grateful American. As I look at the world outside of our beautiful country, I am saddened at the war and violence that was unleashed on 9/11. I am in disbelief and feel disgust that terrorist groups in the Middle East can commit unbelievable acts of violence against innocent human beings and then make sure our children and families take notice of this evil as it is posted on a web site for worldwide viewing. I am grateful today for our American servicemen and women during this Fourth of July holiday.

Many years ago, Art Buchwald turned his wonderfully sideways look at current culture on Thanksgiving. The result was a column that caught his feelings so exactly that he simply repeated it annually until he died a few months ago. Without claiming comparable quality, I feel the same way about baseball. I do a column every year celebrating the birth of a new baseball season, and I strive desperately to say something new, but I suspect it always comes out as just more of the same reverence for a cultural icon that doesn't deserve reverence.

Deepa Bharath Barbecue lovers may call it a dream machine. Lloyd Ikerd just calls it "a legacy." In three weeks, Ikerd, a member of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce's Commodores Club, designed a mammoth custom-built grill on a trailer on which firefighters cooked up more than 1,000 hot dogs for their Public Safety Day on Oct. 6. The grill was donated to the Fire Department by the Commodores Club....

For many years, one man and his wife forged a community tradition in Newport Beach on the Fourth of July. The tradition ended two years ago with the passing of Wolf Stern, a man who, more than most, knew and cherished the meaning of Independence Day in America. Stern and his wife, Ann, held a Fourth of July barbecue on the sands of the Back Bay at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort. Every year, another 100 hot dogs went on the grill. Another crate of soda, another keg of beer, another 100 apple pies to serve to a guest list that started with 50 friends and turned into a gathering of some 500 local residents who knew that on the Fourth, their hot dog would be served by the Sterns.

It's been a cross-cultural kind of week for me. I started with an Italian birthday party then dined at a Chinese restaurant and finished with a trip to a contemporary art museum. Since I have yet to meet Renato's parents — it's a long story with lots of mixed feelings on all sides — I chose to wear the outfit I purchased for that undetermined date, to Remigio's 21st birthday. I had never met Renato's friend Remigio before, but I learned that he is a big fan of all things American.

The Fig & Olive restaurant chain drips with foodie cred. The eateries, which started in Manhattan, feature fancy olive oils and celebrity sightings. An average diner's check easily breaches $50. The Mediterranean-inspired cuisine is the antithesis of quick-stop mall chow. But come November, a Fig & Olive will open in a 12,000-square-foot space at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, beating out 50 others for the prime spot away from the main shopping plaza. There will be ocean views, a garden with a fireplace, wine shelves and a white room inspired by the Cote d'Azur.

From fair-food staples such as corn dogs and lemonade to everything-but-the-kitchen-sink fried items, fairgoers should not be let down when the dinner bell tolls at the 2009 Orange County Super Fair. Taking a stroll through the many food booths on the fair grounds, one might be overwhelmed with the temptations of old favorites. Rows of corn on the cob lined up on the grill, giant turkey drumsticks and hot dogs might trick the average fairgoer into a comfortable, predictable dish.

I had to take a trip recently and, as usual, the flight attendant brought me those little packages of mini-pretzels. Hungry as I was, that served me fine for the moment, but I couldn’t stop thinking about a real good, old pretzel: nice, warm, soft, dipped in a sweet dressing. So this week we’re checking in with a real expert, Bob Meyer from the Auntie Anne’s pretzel store, at Fashion Island. Tell us how many varieties of pretzels you sell at your store.

Sang Thi Huynh, affectionately known as “the hot dog lady,” was a staple on the OCC campus for almost two decades. The Costa Mesa woman died of a suspected heart attack Tuesday at the age of 59, leaving family, friends and patrons who walked by the empty hot dog stand that she ran in tears. Those who knew Huynh described her as gentle, talkative and always concerned with the needs of others. “I couldn’t have asked for a better mother,” said her daughter Doan Do, as tears welled up in her eyes.

It was arguably the largest social gathering of the summer season in Newport Beach. More than 3,000 guests converged upon the Newport sand to partake in the 25th anniversary celebration dinner for the much-loved and admired Junior Lifeguards program. The cuisine of choice: hot dogs, nearly 5,000 of them grilled by staff instructors and volunteers with assistance from Capt. John Carpenter’s cadets. The dogs were served with all the trimmings, including homemade chili.

COSTA MESA — Jeff Abbit has donned some remarkable garb in his time as a performer at the Orange County Market Place: a leprechaun suit on St. Patrick’s Day, a pompadour and shades during the Elvis Fest. Saturday, the Irvine resident got to be a hot dog in the fullest sense of the word. Abbit, who sometimes bills himself as Abbit the Average, took on the persona of Frank Furter as the swap meet celebrated National Hot Dog Month. With hundreds of families in line for $1 hot dogs, the magician created balloon dachshunds, rattled off a series of condiment-related puns (“I’m trying to ketchup with all these people”)

NEWPORT BEACH — First the food inspector arrived two hours late to the tailgate party for Mr. Irrelevant. For that Irrelevant Week's hot dog crew started late grilling its dogs. The three other hot dog stands were ready to feed the masses in a fenced parking lot, where it cost $15 to get in and meet Ramzee Robinson. Then word spread at Rudy's Pub & Grill that Mr. Irrelevant XXXII was running late for Friday night's festivities. Now it makes sense why the football experts called the former University of Alabama defensive back "slow" when he was picked last in the 2007 NFL Draft.
