Holy Cow BBQ at Culver Crossroads is Open...and Delicious

Posted by Scupine on August 24, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Bad news for those who are already grumbling about the overstuffed parking lot at Culver Crossroads (at Sepulveda and Washington): Holy Cow BBQ is now open – and it’s delicious.

Holy Cow isn’t part of a chain, but it doesn’t arise out of nowhere either. There is an additional Holy Cow location in Santa Monica, and Holy Cow’s founder is Rob Serritella, who is also responsible for Messhall Kitchen, which he opened in Los Feliz in 2012. The restaurant’s chef is Glenn Walton, a graduate of the Texas Culinary Academy in Austin who honed his craft in Dallas (Smoke), Fort Worth (Lonesome Dove), and New York City (Danny Meyer’s North End Grill)

My daughter and I checked it out at the lunch hour last week. Robin greeted us and took our order.…

Local Artist Patrick Marston Painting Another Mural in Culver City -- On Apex Aquarium

Posted by Scupine on August 9, 2015 at 6:00am 1 Comment

Culver City's beloved Apex Aquarium (at the corner of Sepulveda and Lindblade) is getting an extraordinary makeover -- thanks to Venice-based Patrick Marston.

As some of you might remember, Marston also painted the luminous fish mural at the corner of Washington Place and McLaughlin Ave last October.

Patrick will be working on this new mural -- which will also extend to parts of the glass along the front of the store -- for at least this whole week. Please stop by and let him know you love it. 

HERE's a short article I wrote about Marston, with plenty of examples of his fine art work.

Thank you to…

Culver City's new Dunkin' Donuts -- located in the former Foster's Freeze location in West Washington -- is opening with some fanfare next Tuesday, August 11, at 5 a.m. The location will offer lounge-style seating inside and an outdoor patio as well as free Wi-Fi Internet access.

To celebrate the new location (at 13300 Washington Blvd., to be exact), the first person in line will receive free coffee for one year and the first 100 guests will receive a Dunkin’ Donuts tote bag packed with "special items." Free samples will be in the offing, and it's a rare opportunity to get your photo taken with Cuppy, the Dunkin' Donuts mascot. I'll bet it's a cup.

New Development Proposed for Culver City Expo Station Parking Lot

Posted by Scupine on July 30, 2015 at 6:30am 2 Comments

Currently, there is a nice big parking lot next to the Culver City Expo Station -- a parking lot that by 8:30 am every weekday is full of the cars of happy commuters. And it remains full each day as people use it park-and-ride to the Staples Center, the Galen Center and other hot downtown locations.

But there's a new proposal on the table from Lowe Enterprises to turn that handy parking lot into "500,000 square feet of high-quality, state-of-the-art office, with apartments, a hotel, stores and restaurants within a landmark, destination-oriented environment." Oh.

The proposal includes underground parking with about half of the current parking spaces. Oh.

This proposal stems from the events of January of 2012, when the Culver City Council…

Actors' Gang Performs "Harry Potter Hamlet" in Media Park in Culver City All August

Posted by Scupine on July 29, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

It has become a very welcome tradition: each Saturday and Sunday in August, the Actors' Gang theater troupe performs a family-friendly adaptation of Shakespeare play in Media Park in Culver City. Last year, it was My Little Pony version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. In 2013, they put on a superhero version of Twelfth Night. In 2012, we got a Star Wars version of The Tempest, with Obi Wan Kenobi as Prospero, Princess Leia as Miranda, C3P0 as Ariel, and Jabba the Hutt as Caliban. 

This year, it seems that they're performing a Harry Potter-ized Hamlet. Here's how they describe it, neatly meshing the themes of the two works: "When the Denmark Court meets the…
