It’s no secret that the medical marijuana industry is quickly growing, or that the drug’s slow march towards legalization continues apace. Here in California, regulators are treating cannabis more and more like any other legal drug or cash crop. Case in point: Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc.

Buster Williams - "George! Is that you George?! Is that U?!" (as told by) "GA" (special story, inside joke 'bout _?_)
“Bassist Buster Williams is one of the key players in modern (J)azz with a rock-solid grounding in harmony, counterpoint and orchestration. Buster's musicianship is impeccable and his rhythmic sense unfailing. Williams’ work as a leader is a blueprint for bassists on how to assume a more proactive, forward position in an ensemble without throwing it out of balance.” —The New Yorker
“In Williams’ hands, the bass is a fully articulate solo voice. His big, deep, resilient and inventive playing has made him the bassist of choice throughout the (J)azz world. He has worked with just about everyone of import on the…Continue

Weil, it's been more than a month now since they closed the Expo Line lot—which was plumb full every weekday as well as for sporting events at the Coliseum and for other special events such as the Women's March. And yet there's still no construction happening.
That's a month that faithful Expo train riders could have been using the lot. Surely someone knew that no construction was going to begin right away. Why did the lot have to be closed so early?
This week, the Los Angeles Times' Jenn Harris whet our appetite for Bäcoshop, the new restaurant in downtown Culver City.
Bäcoshop is the newest brainchild of chef Josef Centeno, who has already opened five hip restaurants in downtown Los Angeles: Orsa & Winston, Ledlow, PYT, Bar Ama, and Bäco Mercat. I can personally attest to the excellence of Bar Ama (Pork Bell Chicharrón and Mole Enchiladas: yes!), and no less an authority than Jonathan Gold named Bäco Mercat one of the 101 best restaurants in Los Angeles. So it's got bona fides.
Bäcoshop is described as a "fast casual" version of Centeno's food, highlighted by "bäcos": sandwiches made with his…Continue
