Dodger fans who want to watch next Tuesday’s home opener from the comfort of their own home may want to consider the $399 Dodger recliner now on sale at La Popular furniture in Echo Park. Watching the game from home (or office) in front of a 42-wide flat screen will also allow fans avoid opening-day traffic snarls across Echo Park. Speaking of the home opener … The Eastsider is checking into the city’s plans to avoid a repeat of last year’s tail gate parties that left parts of Elysian Park near the stadium awash in trash *. Also, many Echo Park residents report they have yet to receive parking placards from the Dodgers that allow them to get through traffic barricades.
* Update: A spokeswoman for Councilman Eric Garcetti said there will be “additional deployment to address neighborhood concerns” about tail gate parties and traffic but did could not provide details.
Another option for the stylish Dodger fan. Echo Park Now
