L.A. Times' Christopher Hawthorne continued his excellent series on L.A.'s boulevards with a piece on iconic Sunset Blvd. I was surprised that the critic didn't ride and record his observations from the painfully slow Metro # 2 bus.
This Saturday May 19th is the Echo Park PDA (public display of art) Art Walk. Over 70 venues participate in this wonderfully eclectic and unique community, saturated with a diverse group of people, boutiques, galleries, coffee shops and cafes.
I saw three different narrative features this past week at Los Angeles Film Festival that were set in the Silverlake area of LA. I live in the area, and it was cool to see familiar spots captured through different eyes.
In the hands of Scott Zwiezen at Echo Park's cozy Elf Cafe, humble ingredients are transformed into something rich and completely delicious -- as with his recipe for Risotto-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.
