The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Both Bigfoot locations look like someone took Yogi Bear's Yosemite ranger stations and plopped 'em down right in the middle of the city. The Westside location has a couple things on its side, though: there aren't a ton of other bars in the area, and it's way bigger than its Atwater brother. Also: there's a BBQ-bombed drink.
From what I gather, this is a hip choice, but I've had a better times at perhaps a half-dozen other bars throughout the city. In fact, my nomination goes to ... the bar at the Culver Hotel.

CCUSD recently completed a highly successful sale of its $26.5 million Election of 2014 General Obligation Bonds, Series A (Culver City Unified School District General Obligation Bond Program). The bonds were well-received in the market, and the timing of the sale could not have been better. The District entered the bond market one day after the lowest interest rate levels of 2014 year-to-date. Focus on Federal Reserve policy, mixed economic data, uncertainty in Europe, and other geopolitical issues created a “flight to quality” into U.S. Treasuries and municipal bonds.
“We were incredibly fortunate that on our bond sale date, the bond market reached its lowest level of the year,” said Mike Reynolds, CCUSD’s Assistant Superintendent, Business Services. “Our original projections for the interest owed over the life of these bonds was $50 million, but because of the timing, taxpayers will only owe $40 million. We were also extremely fortunate in having the expert…Continue
