Chinese New Year and the Golden Dragon Parade

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! If you were anywhere near Chinatown this weekend, hopefully you were able to catch some of the festivities.  On Saturday I biked to Chinatown with my friend, Ashley, for the 115th Annual Golden Dragon Parade.  Luck was on our side as we snagged prime real estate near the end of […]

Broadway’s Proposed Facelift

Downtown has undergone some rapid changes.  I’ve been in LA for nearly seven years now.  Back then, DTLA seemed to me to be a dismal place.  Maybe that was in large part just my perception, but nobody will deny that the gentrification bug has bitten hard.  I believe there are always pros and cons to […]
