News & Notes:

  • A Los Angeles Superior Court judge rejected  a restraining order to stop the city from demolishing the old Riverside bridge that connects Cypress Park and Elysian Valley, said the L.A. Times.  Advocates that want  to preserve the bridge as open space over  the L.A. River said they will continue push ahead with their efforts to save the structure, which is scheduled to be demolished in a few weeks as a replacement bridge rises nearby.
  • A new Trader Joe’s house-brand craft beer is being brewed in Atwater Village. The Daily Dish reports that Golden Road Brewery is now producing  three beers in cans for Trader Joe’s under the “Ol’ Burro Brewery” brand.
