The line at Porto’s in Burbank

Scary stuff in Bubank

A Sunday morning car crash in Burbank sent a vehicle up onto the sidewalk in front of the always-busy Porto’s. The scene caused quite a fright for many, and injured one 12-year-old boy.

According to the LA Times, an unnamed child was transported to the hospital following the morning collision at the intersection, and the extent of his injuries is unknown. The car that ended up on the sidewalk didn’t actually strike the Porto’s building or anyone inside, but because of the long lines the restaurant usually keeps and the sidewalk seating, the corner is still teeming with customers practically all day long. Thankfully no one else was injured.

Maude’s big farewell

Things are changing up at Maude in Beverly Hills soon, which means there’s room left for a little bit of a retrospective. October is going to be ‘greatest hits’ month at the restaurant, with some of the restaurant’s best dishes from their years of monthly ingredient-focused menus making the final cut. November will belong to white truffles, with some new dishes mixed in with old favorites, and December will be the same but with black truffles instead. Be sure to get tickets fast.

Sqirl x Kellogg’s

Looks like Virgil Village staple Sqirl is teaming up with Kellogg’s for a few breakfast-for-dinner ticketed events this week. The project will marry Sqirl’s flavors with Kellogg’s ingredients, and all proceeds are going to help Direct Relief, a non-profit humanitarian organization.

Katsuya helps

From now until October 15, all LA locations of Katsuya will be donating $2 of every sold kokoro relief roll to the Red Cross’s hurricane relief fund. It’s a small way to give back, but for sushi fans there are certainly worse ways to help donate.

Party in Long Beach

Long Beach German restaurant Rasselbock is celebrating Oktoberfest for the next several weeks, with a variety of fun events. There’s a back-lot beer garden happening for the first two weekends of October, a kid-friendly Sunday run with games and specials, and more.

85 Degrees in Northridge

A tipster passes along word that popular Asian bakery 85 Degrees will be heading to Northridge soon. Known for its long lines and big sweets case, the bakery will take over a portion of a shopping center at Tampa and Nordhoff.

Something to see at Sapor

Check out the menu for Sapor, Koreatown’s casual new tapas bar. The big, airy eatery officially opens for dinner Thursday with a happy hour, cocktails, and a whole lot more to enjoy.
