Doing a good thing Downtown
As LA Taco reports, one local group is fighting back against the possible deportation of DACA recipients (aka Dreamers) by hosting a round of ticketed meals, called Dinners for DACA. There’s a catch, though: Showing up means actively participating.
Instead of simply raising money for charity, Dinners for DACA — this one taking place on Wednesday, January 31 at The Standard in Downtown — makes sure to get folks involved by sponsoring letter-writing campaigns, having people make calls, and other actionable agenda items. The $35 ticket cost actually just covers food, the rest is up to those who attend.
Drink at the Palo Alto Hotel
The long-gestating Palo Alto Hotel is lining things up near the 101 and Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park, and that means an application to serve beer and wine from 6 p.m. to midnight daily at a restaurant.
FrankieLucy Bakeshop in Silver Lake is turning one, which means there’s going to be a whole day of 20% off everything in the Sunset Boulevard storefront on Sunday.
