What's the Best Bar in Culver City?

Posted by Scupine on October 27, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Recently, Thrillist.com nominated Bigfoot West (on Venice) as the Best Bar in Culver City. Here's what they had to say about the watering hole: 

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. 

What do you…

Where Am I in Culver City? Game 082 Solution

Posted by Scupine on October 30, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Periodically, I post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.' Last week I asked: Do you know where in Culver City these "Waves" are?

One Culver CIty Times member -- Doug Lemon, naturally -- correctly identified the pic as being part of the sign for Waves Nails at the corner of Clarington and Venice Blvd. 

The Waves Nails Yelp reviews are a little all over the place, but the…

“Perfect Timing” Saves Taxpayers $10 Million in CCUSD Bond Issuance

Posted by Geoff Maleman on October 28, 2014 at 9:17am 0 Comments

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…
