Barragan's Nearly Done in Echo Park; Life & Thyme Party

New, 1 comment

ECHO PARK— East Side Mexican fixture Barragan's, which dates back to 1961, is set to shutter by mid-December, reports The Eastsider LA. The 7,000 square foot restaurant has already been sold to a new undisclosed party. Owner Armando Barragan cites the growing Downtown dining scene and proliferation of taco trucks as reasons for loss in sales. However, fans of Barragan's can still get their margarita and taco fix at the Burbank and Glendale locations. [The Eastsider LA]

VENICE— Culinary storytellers Life & Thyme (they shot that video on Proprietors LLC) are throwing a one year anniversary party with Guisados, Handsome Coffee, and Proprietors LLC. It's safe to say attendees will leave throughly buzzed one way or another. It's going down November 16 from 7-10 p.m. at 701 Oceanfront Walk. Tix cost $45 now or $60 after November 5. Note: Jolly music shall be provided as well. [EaterWire]

SILVER LAKE/DOWNTOWN—And speaking of Valerie Confections, on October 28 (National Chocolate Day), the Silver Lake shop and the counter within Grand Central Market will offer a bunch of special chocolate-flavored desserts and also give out samples of truffles and chocolate covered toffees. Also, Valerie's online shop will hold a one day sale for 20% off all orders of $40 or more on chocolate. [EaterWire]
