    4 Sep 2015 | 4:10 pm
    Twelve years ago, Ara Tavitian moved his vintage shop Retro Gallery to a midcentury building at 1100 South La Brea Avenue. The black iron fence surrounding the two-story showroom has casually deterred me from visiting what looks like an incredible collection of vintage lighting, ceramics, and glass. Tavitian says designers Kelly Wearstler, Paul Fortune, and Sasha Emerson regularly trek behind the spiky gate so why didn’t I? The store is relocating to Washington and Fairfax later this month and a “Blowout Moving Sale” sign caught my eye. I took a second look at the two-story former…

    Mindy Kaling (who just so happens to grace the cover of this month’s issue of Los Angeles magazine) thinks Umami Burger’s new Mindy Burger, which she describes as “spicy and cheesy,” is an apt representation of her personality. The sixth release from the company’s Artist Series, the burger is a beef patty stacked with pickled jalapeño, fried onion strings, and house-made sriracha aioli. It debuted earlier this week. Umami’s Artist series is a collaboration between the ever-expanding burger behemoth and artists in various fields. Previous creations have…

    BRAD AUERBACH
    29 Aug 2015 | 5:33 pm
    Over ten years ago a small yet delightful documentary exploded the world’s awareness of the richness of Cuban music. The film was born on the back of an album produced almost on a wing and a prayer, but the album became the biggest selling Cuban record of all time. Noted film director Wim Wenders joined guitarist Ry Cooder on a journey through the isolated island, bringing out from the shadows the giants of Cuban music. The IRS managed to hound Cooder for years, apparently costing him plenty of greenbacks. The film earned an Oscar nomination. In much the same way Preservation Hall Jazz Band…

    Jackson Browne returned to San Diego with a stellar band and a devoted sold out audience at the Civic Theatre. With a songbook that is rivaled only by a few others for its depth and strength, Browne was able to fill nearly two and half hours of excellent stagecraft. Punctuated occasionally by his chatter (“Sometimes I play back some of my shows and I think I should just shut the hell up between songs,” he admitted at one point), the setlist ranged from early classics to more recent songs. (photo by Brad Auerbach) His first rambling introduction came after the third song, when he was…

    Kaaboo is only about five weeks away, and its creator Bryan Gordon admits he will soon be rounding the clubhouse turn. I asked him recently how the festival, scheduled for September 18-20, came to be located in north county San Diego. He had been looking for a music festival venue in a great metropolitan area, and he was introduced to the folks at Del Mar Fairgrounds via a business acquaintance, and upon first sight it was a lock. Discussions started 18 months ago, with a parallel vision on both sides of the negotiating table. “Our landlords have been great to work with,” Gordon confirms.

    Every now and then I get stuff in my inbox thats just too cool not to share. This infographic from Sparefoot shows just how freaking BIG Griffith Park is compared to other cities of the world.  At over 4000 acres its one of the biggest city park in the world.  No one else comes close, heck its even larger than some national parks.  But I digress, when Brian Shreckengast of Sparefoot reached out and asked if I would be interested in sharing with all of you the answer was an emphatic YES!

  • We’re Still Not Over Donna Karan’s Decision to Step Down at DKI

    4 Sep 2015 | 4:12 pm
    Earlier this summer, Donna Karan announced that she’s stepping down from her role as chief designer of Donna Karan International. With this season’s resurgence of the ’90s style that she helped to define, it’s been hard to get over the news. Karan was one of the wizards behind the curtain who made the ’90s a great decade for fashion. A lot of the looks that were popular during that decade—clingy slip dresses, crop tops, mini skirts, and body-conscious, ribbed dresses—are difficult to pull off. But Karan’s minimalist take was made to compliment the…

    Twelve years ago, Ara Tavitian moved his vintage shop Retro Gallery to a midcentury building at 1100 South La Brea Avenue. The black iron fence surrounding the two-story showroom has casually deterred me from visiting what looks like an incredible collection of vintage lighting, ceramics, and glass. Tavitian says designers Kelly Wearstler, Paul Fortune, and Sasha Emerson regularly trek behind the spiky gate so why didn’t I? The store is relocating to Washington and Fairfax later this month and a “Blowout Moving Sale” sign caught my eye. I took a second look at the two-story former…

  • Coming Attraction: 'Suffragette' and Happy Women's Equality Day!

    26 Aug 2015 | 11:22 am
    I was having a conversation with CC not long ago, and both of us were marveling at the fact that there was actually a time in this country when women couldn't vote.It was strange and funny, because the thought of that seems so bizarre now, and CC was asking what year American women were finally able to cast a ballot. It was 1920, by the way, and today marks the 95th anniversary of the admission of the 19th Amendment — women's right to vote — to the U.S. Constitution.That makes today Women's Equality Day! In case you'd like to dress for the occasion, the colors of suffrage are purple for…

    Back to school!After a whirlwind trip to Oklahoma (more on that later), we're back in Los Angeles to start the first day of third grade. Yesterday was CC's "Unconventional" first day of school, and today was, well, conventional. Except for the whole new teacher, grade, classroom and a few new students part of it.While she was a little hesitant during the summer to start back again -- CC was all about Steve & Kate's Camp this year -- she was more than excited to get started once we got back from our trip. Buying last-minute school supplies and seeing old friends also helped with that.

    La Jewish Lawyer It is not a new idea. It is idea that has even been spoken about this summer when Dr. Claire McCarthy proposed the idea again in the Huffington Post on June 2, 2015. The problem is that every time that idea is proposed gun enthusiasts and 2nd Amendment supporters says that the right to bear arms is different from the “privilege” of driving. Those opponents of gun safety are right in some ways but in a larger sense they are very wrong. While the right to bear arms is expressly written in the constitution and the right to drive a car is not, both rights are granted by the…

    La Jewish Lawyer lawyer working on contingency in los angeles                       Many plaintiff attorneys take on cases on a contingency basis. What this means is that the attorney will not get paid a fee unless the client wins the case either by settlement or verdict. A typical case on this basis is a car accident. Many injured people do not have the financial resources to litigate a case against the responsible party. They do not have the financial power to go to doctors, retain other experts and pay filing fees. Attorneys assess the…

    La Jewish Lawyer Should Religious Doctrine Override the Law                       A recent California case provides a real dichotomy in logic vs doctrine. A mother and her husband agree that after the birth of their second child, they did not want any more children. The mother is to give birth in a Catholic Hospital and the Hospital will not perform a tubal ligation which would prevent future pregnancies because it violates church doctrine. If this is allowed to stand, the mother will have to drive 150 miles to another hospital to have…

The 19 year old’s vehicle was a Jeep Liberty and was involved in a collision with a Toyota Carolla. Tragically, 3 of the 4 people in the Toyota Carolla lost their life. Initially the 19 year old driver of the Jeep Liberty was arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.  Investigators are still reconstructing the accident, but from the pile of twisted metal, many people assume that speed was also a factor. On Tuesday, August 11, 2015, ABC7 reports the 19…

    It appears that sometimes when people are playing with their phone and cause an accident resulting in someone’s death, they may be arrested and tried for gross vehicular manslaughter. Of course, I am not an attorney and if you are seeking legal advice you should speak to a licensed attorney. Today NBC Los Angeles reported that a driver was distracted on their phone and rearended a car that was nearly stopped while speeding along at 85MPH. The driver who was rearended was in a Hyundai and was tragically killed. Unfortunately, distracted driving accidents are on the rise. This clever article,…
  • What is Whiplash?

    juli
    22 Jul 2015 | 10:29 am
    In an automobile crash, a typical personal injury that could take place is whiplash. This happens when a head hurls backward, then forward, like what happens in a jarring and jolting automobile accident. Physicians refer to this as “hyperextension” from getting jerked forward, or a “hyperflexion”, getting jerked backwards. Getting tossed around in this manner, will result in major personal injuries to a neck and upper body, such as the upper rhomboids and trapezium. The harm received from whiplash might consist of intervertebral joint injury, disc problems, damages to the tendons, and…
