I J Hopped Up About Bunny By TEDD THOMEY K"l believe ta the Easter Bunny. You don't believe the ij Mter bunny. But are you aware, by golry. that · of our sffly jtubbornness we may be missing out tl tiling? _ _ jg among us ia Long Beach are (oiks who think there r« »y be aa Easter rabbit after alL And Fm not -- talking about little people of 3, 4 and 5. Fm talking about adults. And I can assure you that these adults are not ready for a one-way journey to Nut Street or Booby- line. They happen to be intelligent, alert adults who find ftrange objects on their front porches every Easter morning. Strange objects like colored eggs, chocolate bunnies and candies. Take Ken and Ruth Schwartz, of 7222 Rosebay SL. for example. When the mysterious eggs ini cardies started showing upon their porch every Easter ijtt, K en thought Ruth was playing a joke on him, and Ruth tl(ought Ken was playing a joke on her. Finally- they convinced one another of their innocence. Srycral years passed before they discovered what was hi ippening. Friends of theirs. Tom and Elaine Marks, of 627.1) Keynote SL, were visiting their house in the still of thd night and dropping off the goodies. Mil. and Mrs. Marks are real, honest-to-goodness Easter bunnies. Each Easter they arise at 3 am. During the EKCt five hours, they go hoppity hop hop to the homes of 20 or 25 friends and acquaintances, quietly depositing treats! on front porches throughout Long Beach and Lakei.cod. 7. key do it just for fan. particularly enjoying dis- truii Ssg goodies to the homes of new acquaintances vcho ccn'J it* the life of them guess where the eggs and candies THOYIEY f. SPOT NEWS FROM TABLECLOTH ROW: A frequent guest at the Hawaiian restaurant. 4645 E. Pacific Coast Hwy.- is handsome film and TV star Ray Milland.

Fve burned Dp a few choice adjectives in the past raving about the prime rib au jus at Jack's Corsican Room. 5430 E.' Second SL. but here 1 go, gladly, again. That prime rib (J4 on a bountiful dinner) is MILLAND superb, wonderful and magnificent. . . . And I don't mind raving either about the quality of the grilled swordfish dinner ($130) at Welch's elegant restaurant on Atlantic Avenue at San Antonio Dr. It's a terrific treat.... If you're looking for schmaltzy Bavarian beer garden atmosphere, and an excellent, modestly priced steak, try the Hofbrau dub, at 22 Hart PL, near the L.B. Arena. It's $2.25 until 30 pjn, when the community sing-a-long starts, and $2.50 thereafter. It's a bargain at either price. And Cere's good news for those fortunates among us who remember the Sunday morning brunch at the old Crow's restaurant Bob Crow is now featuring the brunch at his extraordinarily beautiful Mr. Cs restaurant. 5305 E. Pacific Coast Hwy. Offered are salads, sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, rolls, melons, other fruits and other hot entrees. Served from 10 am. to 2 p.m, the brunches are $2.25 for adults, $125 for children. * * * THIEF WITH A POETIC HEART--The painting of a nude girl stolen last month from Don May's Gay 90s restaurant on Signal Hill was returned recently via Railway Express frora San Diego.

Maybe that's why their restaurants are so . iater'e sting and full of original touches. Take Joe Manno. ' for fib.tance. Joe, who owns Manno's Pizza Den. 5607 SouiySt, Lakewood, recenUy returned from a trip to Eng5iad and Italy. He brought back a pile of colorful Itaiui travel posters which are now displayed in the rest^iaant's front dining room. Where do you suppose theyfre? displayed? On the waits? Don't be silly. They're pastinj to the ceiling. making it the most colorful and nova I ceiling in town. Mrs. T and I admired the posters durii R our visit to Macro's last week. But even more we £ ilmired the delicious cannelloni, a dish you won't find! featured at any other Long Beach area restaurant. CamVeUoni consists of large egg noodles stuffed with a heavenly mild mixture of rich cheese,- eggs, parsley, and '{spices. They are baked lightly and topped with a mejj* sauce. Manno's serves two large cannelloni for $2.75 i with a hearty minestrone soup or fine salad with blue cheese dressing, Italian bread, coffee or tea. | Foodnotf: Manno's cho serves the most unusual pizai in ft rivn. Called O'Cazon. it may sound Irish but it defi- Tulcijr isn't. It's a huge. folded-over ptzra stuffed with xalaitul. cheese and eggs. On« O'Caron (f35Q) can serve /oui'i persons. Joe mentions it on his menu in this uncorc- vcntfanal way: "Nero afe it. Caesar craved if. Columbus forj'pt to bring it over. 1 * "Not the quarry, but the chase. "Not the victory, but the race."
