Reviews have been generally positive for the latest incarnation, and as long as Tarantino stands by his pledge that “As long as I’m alive, and as long as I’m rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm” the show will go on.

    cbskapost
    13 Oct 2014 | 7:27 am
    By Sam McPherson Like him or not, outgoing MLB Commissioner Bud Selig brought some changes to the game of baseball in the last two decades — most notably the expansion of the postseason in 1994 (even though it wasn’t until 1995 that we saw it happen for real). The idea was that more playoff spots would keep more teams — and their fans — interested in the regular season for a longer period of time. Doubling the postseason participants from just four teams in 1993 to eight teams would add excitement to the game. In 2012, Selig did himself one better, expanding to 10…

If you look at some very believable statistics, from very reliable sources, we see that sales and success in real estate, like every other business, is a numbers game if you do certain things correctly and consistently. That said, we all know that only a small percentage of people in the real estate industry make a great living? Why? It’s simple.

    When Quentin Tarantino reopened the New Beverly Cinema earlier this month there were concerns that things would change at the venerable revival house. The Torgan family, who had operated the theater since 1978, was out and longtime employee Julia Marchese resigned in protest. Reviews have been generally positive for the latest incarnation, and as long as Tarantino stands by his pledge that “As long as I’m alive, and as long as I’m rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm” the show will go on. Marchese recently released a documentary…

    Plenty of films and television shows take place in Los Angeles, but productions often use the city as a mere backdrop for the plot. Few put their noses in the dirt and prowl the streets the way Nightcrawler does. The movie, which opens in theaters nationwide this Friday, stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a job-hungry grifter who stumbles upon the world of late-night news gatherers. Soon, Gyllenhaal is cruising around with a police scanner, waiting to pounce on any accident or crime scene he can so that he can sell footage of it to a local news station.

    What do grilled cheese sandwiches and National Geographic have in common? Not much, but on Monday, November 3 in honor of National Sandwich Day you’ll be able to pick up one of chef Eric Greenspan’s award-winning sandwiches from Nat Geo’s food truck (yes, even magazines have food trucks these days). Greenspan, the L.A. chef who owns the popular sandwich Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese on Melrose, will be on hand to take pictures with fans (say cheese!) and talk about his upcoming food show on the Nat Geo channel, Eric Greenspan is Hungry, which premieres on November 24.

    Each Friday, the Digest surveys the burgeoning L.A. restaurant scene and compile this (highly unscientific) list of the most hyped and heralded restaurants in town this instant. Whether old or new, big or small, near or far, these are the restaurants that have people talking. Whatever that means. Anyway, we recommend getting a seat at these places while you still can. 1. Cadet Chef Kris Tominaga’s stylish new restaurant in Santa Monica combines French and California-style cooking with a selection of tartines, wood-grilled meats, and updated takes on classic dishes like onion soup and…

    La Jewish LawyerDiscovery, as the word implies, is a process of finding out things. In litigation, prior to trial, both sides engage in the “discovery process”. The rationale of having discovery is to allow both sides to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of both their case and the other side(s) case. This will aid the parties in resolving their cases short of trial, if at all possible. With the current budget crisis in Los Angeles County, 56 courtrooms have been closed. The remaining courtrooms are dong a valiant job of continuing to get cases out to trial. However, delays are…
