More on the Soho House Arts District

Yep, it's really still coming. Urbanize LA has details on the 2016-launching project, and they include news of a ground floor market, bar, and restaurant, as well as another eatery six floors up.

A quick look at Cambodia Town

LA Weekly put together a nice lil' wrap-up on under-discussed Cambodia Town in Long Beach. At least one restaurant on the list, Siem Reap, is relatively well-discussed, but there are some hidden gems on the list overall.

Free cold brew for CicLAvia

Upcoming Arts District bike shop/coffee destination The Wheelhouse is planning to gear up and give out free cold brew this weekend as part of CicLAvia. They’ll be pedaling around the base of the 4th Street bridge for anyone needing a morning boost.

And RiceBar too!

Charles Olalia's RiceBar will also be open during CicLAvia, selling tons of off-menu Filipino stuff while they're at it.

UberEATS goes late-night

Well, for a few nights anyway. Apparently they’re testing out a post-midnight food drop-off possibility, and it’s running until Sunday. You can get food from Fatburger, Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese, and more, from midnight until 3 a.m.

Aestus is doing happy hour

Running Tuesday through Friday, Aestus’ new happy hour means $7 cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, $4 draft beer, and snack options like a gruyere grilled cheese and fries. Those are good prices anywhere, but pretty stellar for Santa Monica.

Silver Lake's Gelson's goes the wine bar route

In anticipation of next year's Whole Foods 365, the Silver Lake Gelson's is jumping into the fray with their own in-store wine bar and small restaurant space, says The Eastsider.

Greg Morris just bought up the old Victors Square Restaurant

After more than three decades serving Franklin Village, Victors Square closed earlier this year. Now ABC signage is back up in that quiet corner, and it points to Greg Morris, who also owns Franklin & Co. and The Oaks Gourmet right next door. Seems like a smart expansion, whatever the place will become, for Morris.
