But for those who are new to the brotherhood, the private drive-thru chain is perfect for those looking to get in an out quick. Outside temps are still a bit hot, so you can continue to drink any of the many cold coffee or noncoffee beverages you may enjoy, but for those looking to get into the fall spirit, surely you can make the jump to warmer flavors—like the caramel pumpkin brûlée (pumpkin and salted caramel breve with whip, pumpkin drizzle and raw sugar—don’t worry, you can ice it, too).

Everyone knows In-N-Out, so it’s no surprise the consensus says it’s our readers’ favorite local burger. From the classic hamburger or cheeseburger to the Double-Double, the menu is as simple, classic and affordable as it is good. Or, if you peruse the “Not So Secret Menu,” you can get even more bang for your buck and feed a larger appetite with the Triple-Triple or Quad-Quad—among other “hidden” choices, like double meat, Animal Style or Protein Style, the latter wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.

Treat yourself to some classic pizza and wings or switch it up and get some pasta or a stromboli. Vegetarians can enjoy delicious zucchini sticks, salad or fried mushrooms. Add a 2-liter bottle of soda or a cannoli, too. You deserve it!

The secret is in the sauce. It’s a good thing there are 20 to choose from, ranging from dry rub ATL-style to extreme honey habanero and even one labeled simply toxic. ATL stands for All the Luv and love is the first ingredient in every recipe. This family-owned and -operated business has been making finger-licking good wings since 2012.

Whether you like your subs steaming hot or refreshingly cool, Firehouse Subs is sure to satisfy your fix. Order an Italian, Firehouse meatball or New York steamer from its specialty menu or build your own the way you like it. Firehouse Subs is more than just a name—a portion of each purchase goes to its public safety foundation to fund life-saving equipment for first responders.

Got a sweet tooth? Look no further than Papa Ed’s Ice Cream, located in the Catlin Court Historic District. This classic old-timey ice cream parlor is run by three generations of friendly faces who are happy to strike up a conversation and serve you a sweet treat. The ambiance of the cottage location and delicious flavors will make you scream for Papa Ed’s Ice Cream.

La Perla has been a Glendale icon since 1946. After closing its doors in 2016, a new family came in to revive the beloved brand—with Bloody Marys a staple at breakfast and weekend brunch. Or, try the Blood Maria, amped up with tequila. And La Perla has been offering mimosa specials, to make breakfast the happiest meal of the day.

It’s often taken for granted when people talk of health care, but the key word for Hospice of the Valley is “care.” The agency is one of the country’s oldest and largest not-for-profit hospices, sticking close to its original mission: “We bring comfort, dignity and compassionate care to our community.” Services include pediatric care, dementia care, pulmonary care and palliative care for those suffering chronic illness.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help

5614 W. Orangewood Avenue olphglendale.com 623-939-9785 Like many other churches, Our Lady of Perpetual Help closed during the COVID-19 pandemic but has reopened “in compliance with CDC/state guidelines while maintaining a reverent and prayerful atmosphere.” In addition to Mass, the church offers youth and adult religious education, Bible study, sacraments and events such as pet blessings.

A little bit of Las Vegas, right here in Glendale: After building a temporary facility that drew thousands, Desert Diamond Casino doubled down to complete its vision of a mammoth, permanent West Valley casino earlier this year. Built for a big stack of $400 million, the 75,000-square-foot casino has five restaurants, 1,000 slot machines, 36 poker and 48 blackjack tables. The casino project was announced in 2009, with the interim casino opening six years later.

Berenice Bejarano can remember dreaming of being a kindergarten teacher since she was 10 years old. When her dream became a reality, she knew this was her calling. “I truly feel that I was born to teach young students,” she said. “My goal is to make a difference in the lives of as many students as I can because I believe our kindergarten students are the future.” A native of Aldama, Chihuahua, Mexico, Bejarano is definitely preparing them well.

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER

Nichol Castro, Apollo High School 8045 N. 47th Avenue 623-435-6300

READER RECOMMENDED

Teaching since January 2005, Nichol Castro started teaching middle school math to try and improve upon her experience at that age. In college, he helped her seventh-grade sister in math, and she said, “You make it so easy! Why doesn’t my teacher just say that?” Castro took her sister’s words to heart and became a teacher. Her philosophy is all students are capable of learning with the right support. “When I get to experience the light bulb moment when something clicks for a student after working so hard, I truly feel lucky. My students are my students forever and I will always be there to help and support them.”
