Gallery Pick of the Week: The Faded Beauty of Terry Thompson at George Billis Gallery in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on May 26, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Terry Thompson's photorealistic oils depicting old signs make a very welcome return to Culver City in a show at George Billis Gallery, opening this Saturday, May 30. The show is called "Dive Motels and Cheap Eats."

Here's what the gallery's website says about the latest show: "Terry Thompson continues to explore his fascination with text and Americana through his highly detailed and aggressively cropped oil paintings based on vintage signage and graphics."

And here's what I had to say about Thompson's last show at George Billis Gallery, back in March of 2011. "Thompson's paintings have great surface joys -- suave graphic lines and brilliantly faded colors.

Evan Funke has left the building. According to the Los Angeles Times, the chef at Culver City's hot Italian restaurant has resigned from his post and is heading to Europe:

Funke says he doesn't know who's taking over for him behind the stoves at Bucato. He's moved on to other things, specifically heading to Italy. "Gonna do the islands and extreme south of the boot," he texted. Eating a lot of pasta, it's probably safe to say, along the way. 

Under Funke's leadership Bucato drew rave reviews from the…


CCUSD, City Create New Traffic Patterns to Enhance Safety Near High School Complex

Posted by Geoff Maleman on May 20, 2015 at 11:41am 0 Comments

Working with the City of Culver City and the Culver City Police Department, Culver City Unified School District is implementing new traffic patterns on Elenda Street in front of the Culver City High School and Middle School complex.


“We know pick-up and drop-off times in this area can be busy and chaotic,” said Superintendent Dave LaRose. “Our primary concern is student safety, and we believe the new traffic patterns will encourage drivers and pedestrians to co-exist more safely. We encourage parents and others driving through the area during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times to pay special attention to the new patterns.”


Effective immediately, drivers heading south on both Garfield and Franklin can only turn right when reaching Elenda. Parents wishing to drop off their students on the west side of Elenda or in the Farragut/CCMS parking lot must enter the area at Braddock or any street north of Braddock.

Posted by Scupine on May 12, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

LA Confidential has posted an conversation between Chloe Tran, the mastermind behind downtown Culver City's East Borough restaurant, and Kimmy Tang, the entrepreneur behind 9021Pho.

Here's what Tran has to say about what sets Vietnamese food apart from other Asian cuisines:

A lot of times, you’ll find that Southeast Asian foods like Malaysian or Thai get cooked down a lot, and the vegetables lose their essence. With Vietnamese food, the freshness and fresh produce make it very unique.

On what she would consider to be her signature dish:

Our pho baguette, a banh mi…
