Good Eggs

Online grocery retailer Good Eggs is coming back to Los Angeles, a surprise move for the Bay Area-based tech and produce company after suddenly leaving most of its expanded markets (including LA) back in 2015. At the time, the company noted that it simply could not scale as effectively as it had promised and so was leaving most of its existing markets to return to San Francisco, leaving behind plans for a major retail hub in Frogtown. Now the company has returned anew, with plans to start selling not only produce (Masumoto Farms and Harry’s Berries, among others) and goods like eggs and dairy but also locally-made products like Fly by Jing chili crisp. What’s more, the company is also moving into meal kits, offering pre-packaged dinnertime potions, charcuterie boards, and other ideas, delivered at home. The plan is to re-launch in the coming weeks with delivery across much of central LA; curious home diners can sign up for the waitlist now.

A new leader in Las Vegas

LA barman Julian Cox is jumping to Las Vegas to lead the MGM Resorts operation as the sprawling casino company’s executive director of beverage, and its corporate mixologist. That’s a massive role, given the size of MGM, and means one of LA’s most recognizable bartenders will be responsible for rolling out bar programs for the company globally.

A new lunch option in Pasadena

U Street Pizza is opening for lunch in Pasadena this week. The Union-owned pizza project now has a full liquor license as well and is offering a robust daytime menu with salads, meatballs, square slices, the usual New York-style pies, and more. Hours run from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and there’s also a new happy hour Tuesday-Thursday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with $10 cocktails and $8 glasses of wine.

A ruckus in Hollywood

Former reality star Farrah Abraham was arrested at new Hollywood destination Grandmaster Recorders, reports, TMZ, after allegedly slapping a security guard. Abraham later released a statement saying that she was singled out and “attacked” by staff. In 2018, Abraham was permanently banned from the Polo Lounge for hitting an employee there.
