Otherwise it’s regular lunch and menu hours the rest of the week, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Enhancing the work
LA Times has a great story out on the struggle of many in the bar world to overcome their station in the industry, owing largely to a language barrier.

Doughnuts on the move
Love doughnuts? So does everyone else in Los Angeles, which is why the Discover LA team has started the Donut Trek, a collect-them-all monthlong event where classics like DK’s and California Donuts offer one-off flavors between today and the end of the month. Collect them all, indeed.
