A daily note to readers from publisher Jesús Sanchez
SUNDAY, September 23Hello, Eastsiders. The first full day of fall has arrived with some lovely weather. Check out our Events Calendar for things to do and our Open House Calendar for the newest listings.
We we had so much fun at last night’s Frogtown ArtWalk. The L.A. River path (loved those paper lanterns) was jammed with people, bikes, pedicabs and skateboarders making their way to stop by the open studios and galleries. It was also a good opportunity — and a little disorienting — to discover all the new and coming soon studios, offices, cafes and homes that were not there during the last artwalk . Check out Instgram for photos of the event.
A quick scan of the weekend’s news and stories finds:
- A masterplanned Orange County development has created its own version of Silver Lake’s Chandelier Tree while the original is going dark because of permit problems.
- A 1920s electric-substation turned residence and event space in Lincoln Heights has gone up for sale.
- An election to fill the school board seat left vacant by Ref Rodriguez has been scheduled for March 5.
- The man who shot fatally shot himself in the head last week in front of the Rampart police station was retired supercross racer Tyler “One Punch” Evans.
Check back with us later this week for stories about historic districts in Angeleno Heights and Highland Park and a pit stop for the homeless in Echo Park.
