Tax time

LA Magazine has uncovered some political donations made by the In-N-Out company out of Irvine. Apparently the privately-held corporation donated some $25,000 to local Republican causes, which is stirring up some ire in traditionally Democratic-leaning California. The company was forced to put out its own statement about donating equally to Republican and Democratic causes, saying “we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach.”

The struggle

Here’s Jeremy Fox showing off the construction site that will, eventually, become his restaurant Birdie G’s. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into places like this, as the rubble shows.

Bacon day

Apparently there’s a bacon-focused faux holiday coming up, which is all the excuse that Huntington Beach’s outpost of Slater’s 50/50 needs in order to install a photo booth that apparently rains bacon. They’ll also be doing big burger giveaways as part of a grand opening celebration and overall bacon party.

Paperback news

Just around the corner from Glendale Tap comes the new Paperback Brewing, an upstart operation making “handcrafted ales & lagers.” ABC signage is already up at the site: 422 Magnolia Avenue in Glendale.
