    Rabbi Effie Golberg is in a bind. It's late Friday night and he's got about 60 noisy teenagers at his home in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood.

    Right now, they are sampling five different cholents, as part of his first-ever Cholent Cook-Off.

    But there's a problem: Cholent No. 4...

    You can hang out for years at the Pico-Robertson intersection: Shop for fixtures at McNoon Crystal Lighting, get grande drips at Starbucks, carpets at Moghaddam Rugs, mezzuzahs at Schmulies, a Hollywood head shot at Award Studios, some Zantac at Walgreens after you had a pastrami at...

    You walk into an elegant, minimalist little building on the corner of Pico and Doheny in the heart of the hood. It's Shabbat, and you've come to pray.

    After 30 days of spiritual feasting, repenting, praying and partying, I think this is a good time to head into the hood and meet my buddy Gino Tortorella.
