EaterWire: Tap Project Training This Weekend, More!

New, 5 comments

GOOD DEEDS—Friend-of-Eater Hobson of Hobson's Choice emails to alert us that this Saturday is training day for this year's Tap Project. Take it away, Hobson:

In 2007, the Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF's efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.

So what can you do to help here in LA? Well, the Tap Project runs primarily on volunteers. Volunteers are needed to help recruit restaurants, publicize the project, host dinner parties, participate in a Water Walk or organize their workplaces. Ever wanted to get closer your favorite chef and help with a good cause at the same time? Then come on down to the training this Saturday!

RSVP and details here. [EaterWire]

HOLLYWOOD—A fan of Azami, which traded owners last summer, updates us on the grim situation at this former tiny sushi spot: "I was driving by Azami Sushi (right by Al' Angelo) on Melrose Ave. and noticed that the Azami sign was gone. Ever since Niki sold Azami to a Korean owner the food went from sublime when Niki had it to horrible Korean roll city. Did the Korean owner sell it or just change the name thinking that it was the name that was wrong with the place? Ha. By the way how is Nikki doing working at her family's fish market? I had some incredible meals by her hand which throws in the face from some sushi aficionado's assertion that woman's bodies are too warm to make proper sushi." [ShutterWire]

MID-CITY WEST—Per Blackburn & Sweetzer, "Intimate French spot The Little Door has launched Little Lounge this week, which means late-night Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10pm-1:30am, featuring DJ Stephanie and a late-night menu." [B&S]
