Mt. Washington Made Craft Fair on September 24, 2016


A local craft fair to support Mt. Washington Elementary School, September 24, 9 AM - 1 PM

Treats by G & B Coffee, Si Paletas, and Good Times Ice Cream.

Children's craft workshop by Purple Twig.

The idea for the event came to life from a long time Mt Washington resident who wanted to figure out a way to bring the community out to support it's local school. There is a long history of artists and designers working on the hill that we want to honor by opening up the beautiful, eucalyptus-lined school grounds as a community gathering place. By making this an annual event we hope to provide a regular forum for friends and neighbors to come together and see what amazing work is being produced right here in our neighborhood.  

Jonathan Gold Gives His Take on Echo Park's Ultra Hip Winsome

It sounds like a reliable option for Echo Park denizens

This week, Jonathan Gold reviews Winsome, the Echo Park restaurant that opened earlier this year on the bottom floor of an iconic William Perreira designed building. Before opening the full restaurant, chef Jeremy Strubel was known for "hipster brunch," but J. Gold describes those hipsters as having "gym-toned arms and $400 sneakers."

Those days have come and gone, and now the restaurant serves a breakfast and lunch that are described as "perhaps more impeccable than exciting, and designed to feed nearly every constituency."

The Times critic explains that dinner isn't much different, but the food sure is pretty:

If there is a single person who has eaten without pausing to Instagram the salad of briefly seared kampachi arranged with white blossoms, sweet chunks of nectarine and dehydrated-beet bullseyes, I have yet to meet her. This is all good-looking food: even the platter of spice-rubbed roast chicken, even the cat's cradle game of a rye pretzel sprawled over the bowl of cold fontina mousse, even the whole roasted branzino splayed on its plate like a salmon in a Tulalip feast.

The Goldster concludes by describing the restaurant as "retro yet contemporary, American yet leaning slightly Eastern, and lashed with umami, the sixth taste, in unexpected ways," and recommends the pancake, potato rosti, duck egg toast, pork short ribs, whole roasted branzino, and banana rum tres leches.

Los Feliz

Los Feliz

Rancho Los Feliz was originally given to Senor Vicente Feliz, a Spanish army corporal who accompanied the original 44 settlers to what was then known as “El Pueblo de la Reina de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles.” He was given grazing rights to raise cattle here in exchange for his excellent service to the Spanish Crown. Five miles northwest of downtown, it is now known for its Spanish style estates that line the southern hills of Griffith Park with spectacular city views. It is also home to some of the grandest residential architecture in the city, including two homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright: Hollyhock House and the Ennis House. John Marshall High School in the Los Feliz district is one of the most highly recognized high schools in the city. The school is known for the achievements of its magnet program in the academic decathlon and the main building is a historic landmark. Griffith Park in Los Feliz, offers a wide range of entertainment options with the Greek Theatre, Observatory, Museum of the American West, LA Zoo, 3 golf courses, hiking and horse riding trails. Los Feliz is centrally located yet uniquely situated in a part of the city that is vibrant and exciting. Bordered by the star studded Hollywood area, Los Feliz offers great nightlife and legendary restaurants, just south of the boulevard.
