  • The Insanely Luxurious Vehicles We Saw Car-Watching at the Grove’s Valet

    What Los Angeles teaches you is to be mindful of what’s on the road next to you. It also can make you, if you try hard enough, to appreciate just how this city really is a fantasy-land for cars. Take away the envy — again, being mindful — and you’ll see just how spoiled we are here in Los Angeles with the absurd amount of sheer awesomeness on the road. Sitting at the valet station is a lot like going to zoo, except with a lot more chrome and lots more plastic surgery. As a car lover, there really is no better place to fill the need to see some insane metal than posting up for a few…

    I rarely put up a notice of an event that costs money to attend or this far in advance.  But this show is big, beyond the normal car show we see here in L.A.  Its the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance coming on September 14 at the Trump Mational Golf Course in Palos Verdes.  This isn’t a cheap event, but has unique, rare and expensive automobiles.  Think Cord, Auburn, Dusenberg…not Galaxy, Impala or other plebeian rides. Among the cars there will be a full size Hot Wheels Darth Vader car that was made to look like the toy car.  It was unveiled at Comic con this summer…

    Every UCLA football Saturday, whether at the Rose Bowl or on the road, has so much more to it than a win or a loss. That’s why each postgame Monday (or in this case, Tuesday), the Daily Bruin will break down the Bruins’ most recent game, outlining the good, the bad and the verdict for their performance. This week, we take a closer look at UCLA’s 28-20 win over Virginia on Saturday at Scott Stadium. The Good: The Defense Through 13 games last season, UCLA’s defense totaled just a single touchdown. In a span of 13 minutes during the second quarter of Saturday’s game, it scored…

    1) UCLA offensive line vs. Memphis pass rush It’s no secret that UCLA’s offensive line had a rough outing against Virginia on Saturday, surrendering five sacks and allowing many other rushers to collapse the pocket on redshirt junior quarterback Brett Hundley. If redshirt junior center Jake Brendel is healthy enough to play against Memphis, that could help matters, but the unit needs some work in practice this week. The O-line certainly won’t get a week off against Memphis, as the Tigers return their top four defensive linemen from last season, including redshirt senior…

More than 50 Los Angeles-based Uber drivers assembled in a North Hollywood parking lot Tuesday night to voice their displeasure with continued cuts in their take-home pay. “None of us have anything against the app. We love the app,” said driver Aya Valilar, who has been working with the company a year-and-a-half. “I’ve experienced four cuts since I started.

Jose Altuve had four hits for the second straight night, Brad Peacock threw 6 1/3 solid innings and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-3 on Tuesday night. Altuve became the first Astro to accomplish that feat since Lance Berkman did so in May of 2008.

    With fall in full swing, it’s official: Summer 2014 stunk at the box office. According to Rentrak, the season saw $4.05 billion in ticket sales, down 15 percent from last summer’s record $4.75 billion. That’s the slowest summer in eight years—17 if you factor in inflation. Attendance was also down more than 5 percent. So what went wrong? For one thing, the hits just weren’t that big. “Guardians of the Galaxy” may have become the year’s highest-grossing film over Labor Day weekend…

That’s the good news. The bad news is that those jobs are increasingly part-time or temporary and at lower wages. “Part of that is undoubtedly due to the recovery from the recession,” Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist with the Los Angeles…

While "unlikely," this could lead to premature spoilage or foodborne illness, according to the FDA. No illnesses have been reported (officially — however, see below).… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    The Vacancy is one of those dark comedies that challenges you to figure out just what it’s trying to say. Written and directed by Jeptha Storm, it features colorful dialogue and potentially vivid characters, neither of which quite make up for the question marks that mar the story.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

  • The Coconut Club: A Tiki-Inspired Fine Dining (and Drinking) Adevnture

    The Coconut Club, L.A.’s only underground tiki supper club, had a few test runs earlier this year to great success, and a lot of flair.

The Coconut Club is a collaboration between chef Andy Windak, cocktailians Nathan Hazard and Elana Lepkowski, and emcee Darren Herczeg.

  • How Coravin is Saving Vintage Wine Bottles, One Cork at a Time

    Caroline On Crack
    2 Sep 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Corked wine is a major bummer among wine aficionados. Removing the cork from a bottle means exposure to air, which in turn lends to oxidization and the spoilage of flavors. That might not mean much for the bottle of 2013 rosé from Napa you just picked up, but when you’re dealing with a luxurious Grand Cru Burgundy from the 1980s, the risk of spoilage becomes much greater (unless you drink it in one sitting). That’s why Coravin, a wine tool that uses a gas-injected needle to pump wine from a bottle without breaking the cork seal, has become quite popular since hitting the market…

    In what he’s calling the “largest anti-poverty program in the city’s history,” mayor Eric Garcetti has announced a plan of attack regarding minimum wage in Los Angeles County. The strategy, which seeks to boost the wage requirement from $9 to $13.25 per hour by 2017, would help the nearly 567,000 workers who “earn minimum wage but can’t live off of it,” according to Garcetti. The mayor’s proposal, dubbed Raise The Wage LA, would bump earnings up by $1.25 (to $10.25) in its first year, with an additional $1.50 being added to paychecks each of the following two…

    One of the more eclectic figures on the music scene for the last nearly four decades is the former computer programmer named Declan Patrick MacManus. Unless you dutifully recognize that name from studying songwriting credits, you know him as Elvis Costello. He poked his head out of the original mid 70s British punk scene, chained himself to a post outside of the London record company that eventually signed him and started down the road of exploring every nook and cranny of the musical landscape. I have on cassette a great FM radio show from 1977; Costello snarls his way through a bunch of his…

    (USA TODAY Sports Images) Just hours after the Los Angeles Angels learned they lost starter Garrett Richards for the remainder of the season, righty Matt Shoemaker took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in the Angels’ 2-0 win over the Red Sox. Boston infielder Will Middlebrooks broke up the no-hit bid with a two-out double. So Shoemaker’s biggest fan — his wife, Danielle — took to Twitter to express her frustration.

  • The Los Angeles Angels Sans Garrett Richards

    Scouts Alley
    22 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    By Murphy Powell I’d like to start with a short anecdote. The Los Angeles Angels moved into first place in the American League West several days ago. It took four months for the Angels to get there, and, even though Oakland only led by a couple of games for much of the year, it seemed like the A’s were a near lock for the AL West title. So upon seeing the Angels holding sole possession of first place, I thought to myself, “Well that’s neat. I wonder if they have the pitching to keep it up.” Then I went to FanGraphs and looked at the team. When I saw that the…

    It’s a strong possibility the fifth edition of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will be filmed no where near the island nations south of the continent. Instead, production will move down under to the land of Oz, thanks to a $20.2 million tax incentive from the government of Australia. Disney had previously been promised similar tax incentives to film the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” remake in 2013, but since that project has been shelved, the tax credits were transferred to Pirates V. It’s not 100% official that the movie will move, Disney is, of…

The play itself is well written and I’ll try not to give any spoilers, the play focuses on 3 couples, two who actually…

    Man, dusting off my password and sharing one of my favorite fun things to do in the summer.  Wander about Myrtle Ave in Old Town Monrovia, hit a few of the night spots and enjoy some terrific art along the way. Yup, its time for the Annual Summer Art Walks presented by the Monrovia Assocation of Fine Arts.  Now in its 10th year its a fine example of local art produced in my little corner of L.A. Several of the local Art Galleries will be open, there will be live music as well as the usual Old Town attractions to keep you busy and entertained. The event will be held the last 3 Saturdays of…

    Whitney Adams
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:14 pm
    The Coconut Club, L.A.’s only underground tiki supper club, had a few test runs earlier this year to great success, and a lot of flair. The event is back and taking over a rooftop terrace in Downtown’s historic core for three nights only in early September. The Coconut Club is a collaboration between chef Andy Windak, cocktailians Nathan Hazard and Elana Lepkowski, and emcee Darren Herczeg. I chatted with Andy and Nathan about how they met, the inspiration for The Coconut Club and some of their favorite dishes and drinks being served. How did everyone involved first meet? NH:…

  • How Coravin is Saving Vintage Wine Bottles, One Cork at a Time

    Caroline On Crack
    2 Sep 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Corked wine is a major bummer among wine aficionados. Removing the cork from a bottle means exposure to air, which in turn lends to oxidization and the spoilage of flavors. That might not mean much for the bottle of 2013 rosé from Napa you just picked up, but when you’re dealing with a luxurious Grand Cru Burgundy from the 1980s, the risk of spoilage becomes much greater (unless you drink it in one sitting). That’s why Coravin, a wine tool that uses a gas-injected needle to pump wine from a bottle without breaking the cork seal, has become quite popular since hitting the market…

    What Los Angeles teaches you is to be mindful of what’s on the road next to you. It also can make you, if you try hard enough, to appreciate just how this city really is a fantasy-land for cars. Take away the envy — again, being mindful — and you’ll see just how spoiled we are here in Los Angeles with the absurd amount of sheer awesomeness on the road. Sitting at the valet station is a lot like going to zoo, except with a lot more chrome and lots more plastic surgery.

  • Garcetti Plans to Raise Minimum Wage to $13.25 by 2017

    Marielle Wakim
    2 Sep 2014 | 2:06 pm
    In what he’s calling the “largest anti-poverty program in the city’s history,” mayor Eric Garcetti has announced a plan of attack regarding minimum wage in Los Angeles County. The strategy, which seeks to boost the wage requirement from $9 to $13.25 per hour by 2017, would help the nearly 567,000 workers who “earn minimum wage but can’t live off of it,” according to Garcetti. The mayor’s proposal, dubbed Raise The Wage LA, would bump earnings up by $1.25 (to $10.25) in its first year, with an additional $1.50 being added to paychecks each of the following two…
