Curmudgeon Corner - Teens Will Lose Out

My Thoughts for February 22, 2015

You’re going to love this one.  Yesterday this ole curmudgeon actually made a date with the wife to go to lunch together.  I was excited (she said yes), she was excited and off we went both babbling like it was our first date.  Wow!  When we got to the restaurant we decided to eat in the bar section; less noise and no crying kids.  I know that sounds a bit cold but after driving school bus and a hundred kids twice a day it feels relaxing to sit in a…

Culver City's A-Frame Returns to Los Angeles Magazine's "Where to Eat Now" List

Posted by Scupine on February 27, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Los Angeles Magazine's "Power-Ranking" of new L.A. restaurants serves as a guide to the hottest eateries in the city -- and its rare when a 5-year-old (!!) restaurant makes the last. But thanks to chef Roy Choi's decision to rethink the menu to emphasize the Hawaiian-ness that Choi says was always part of the menu's charm, that's exactly what happened to A-Frame.

Here's what the Los Angeles article had to say about the restaurant:

Inspired by recent trips to Hawaii, Roy Choi decided to flip the concept of his Culver City restaurant A-Frame. The menu now features classic island fare like spicy tuna poke, curry gravy loco moco, Spam musubi, and marinated…

Multiple Gallery Openings in the Culver City Art District This Saturday

Posted by Scupine on February 19, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

If you've been waiting for the right time to spend a Saturday evening in the Culver City Art District, this weekend (February 21) is it. George Billis Gallery, Western Project, and Luis De Jesus Gallery are all having openings. And in my experience, that means there'll be a lot of activity at all the galleries on La Cienega and on Washington. Great art is likely and great people-watching is guaranteed. Openings are (always) free and open to the public and generally last from 6 to 8 pm. 

George Billis Gallery LA (at 2716 S. La Cienega Blvd) will feature works by Anne Seidman and Karen Woods. Here's an example of Seidman's work:…

Four Culver City Establishments Make Thrillist's List of the 24 Best Dive Bars in Los Angeles

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

Just go ahead and dub Culver City the Dive Bar Capital of the City. Evidence? When Thrillist assembled its look at the finest dive bars in Los Angeles, a full 16 percent of the bars were located in our fair burg. 

Scarlet Lady was called "The best dive for free homemade food," and the article added:

The Scarlet Lady tempts you with many of the usual trappings of a genuine dive bar: cheap and strong drinks, colorful clientele, unpolished karaoke, and well-worn pool tables. But where it really comes through strong is with regular appearances of homemade food (chili, hot dogs, nachos, breakfast burritos...), often times for free, or at least all you…

Dear CCUSD Families,

As you may know, Southern California is currently experiencing a measles outbreak. Culver City Unified School District cares about the health and safety of our students, employees, parents and local community. As such, we feel compelled to share important information on the health risks associated with measles, and the measures that can be taken to prevent and treat it.
