Drink beer for the health of the economy
Apparently a robust craft beer market in L.A. is good for the city, adding millions in revenue and taxes. Who'da thunk! And yet, the city itself maintains a labyrinth of arcane rules and regulations and stipulations that continue to make the heart of L.A. a place most unfriendly to new beer business. And if you want to scale up, like Strand in Torrance? Forget about it.
Speaking of... it's already Oktoberfest time
That's according to the LA Times at least, who sits down with sausage man Alex Lagger, the hands behind Alpine Village's most coveted bratwursts. Apparently they literally do still make all the sausages by hand.
Feed the Dinosaur
Silver Lake's Dinosaur Coffee, now sans WiFi, has been adding to its food arsenal with pastries and such from Nicole Rucker, but now comes the big guns: sandwiches from Soppressata, Eric Park's small shop just down the road. Available weekdays (Tuesday through Friday) only.
Don't hog the free samples
Or, maybe don't tell someone else not to hog the free samples. The latter apparently earned an elderly man an unfortunate punch in the face at Burbank's Costco, according to CBS LA. The 24 year-old attacker was reportedly arrested on site.
Expanding lunch options
Two newish restaurant options are getting into the lunch game: All’acqua in Atwater Village (working weekday specials like a $17 pork chop) and Kaiju in Sherman Oaks, which is keeping things eclectic with options like sashimi salad and spicy shrimp crispy rice. Both are weekday only, ending at 2:30 p.m.
Compton’s taco game is strong
