Everything from NBA players releasing limited edition sneakers to autograph sessions with musicians & actors.
What I didn't realize was that they've been filming a show at the mall called "Westfield Buzz…Continue

This time, it's this pastoral image of a bygone Culver City. Do you know where it is?
If you recognize it, enter your response in the comments!

If you don't recognize Tito's from these pictures, it's because this is what it…Continue

I thought that if there was one place in Culver City that might be affected by traffic backing up on the 405, it might be this intersection of Washington Pl. and Sepulveda Blvd. But nope. As of 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, all is well. As this picture shows, there seems to be less traffic, if anything.
Good job, Los Angelinos! Maybe we're not as dependent on our…Continue

Last week I was riding the newest part of the Ballona Creek Bike Path with my wife, starting at Kronenthal Park, and heading all the way to the ocean.
While happy to see the section opened after it as closed for years, it was disappointing how rough the path was where it was repaired with asphalt and all the graffiti. Especially when you compare this sections to the beautiful…Continue
