Celebrate Arbor Day 2014 with Free Mini Tacos from Tito's Tacos

Posted by Scupine on April 22, 2014 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Tito’s Tacos and the Culver City Public Works Department will join forces to celebrate Arbor Day 2014 with a tree planting ceremony outside of the award-winning Mexican food restaurant, tomorrow morning, April 23, from 8 am to 9 am.

Some Gifs Celebrating MGM's 90th Anniversary

Posted by Scupine on April 21, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Last Thursday, April 17, marked the 90 anniversary of Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer Studios, and an industrious fan on Tumbler, Nitrate Diva, took the opportunity to create some fun gifs.

The next day he started running a crazy circuit in the house and outside. In the front door, through the house, then out the back. He ran for hours, bumping and sliding…

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 this vine-covered wall is?

Eagle-eyed -- and Indefatigable -- Culver City Times member Doug Lemon offered the only correct guess to this weeks' puzzle, which was a close-up of the east wall of the Sony Studios lot parking structure near the Motor Entrance. Here's what Doug had to say about his quest for the solution: "I rode my bike 26 miles and drove…
