Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Today marks the 60th annual re-enactment of the Signing of the Articles of Capitulation. It's a part of our history, and to celebrate it, at Campo de Cahuenga this afternoon starting at 1 p.m. there is an afternoon fiesta, with dancers, the firing of the Howitzer cannon, a tour of the site's archeological dig, presentation of the 12 flags over California, and refreshments. It's easy to get there on the Red Line, too--it's located next door to the Universal City Station!

Head over to Glendale to experience a Sunday Session at the wine bar at Palate--the restaurant that made a lot of "best of" lists last year. Enjoy the community spirit of breaking bread together and listening to music; the night has a "Single Dish" special, there's a unique wine flight and our wine bar menu, and tonight it's B.Y.O.V.--Bring Your Own Vinyl! Diners are invited to simply show up with records or cd's & drop a session while you enjoy some food + wine. It's from Noon to 5, and their "Single Dish" is a bollito misto con salsa verde (piemontese mixed meat in broth with green sauce) for $15, and there's a $10 wine flight featuring pours of 3 wines.

Culver City's Rush Street is running comedy Sundays this month in the Chicago-inspired eatery. They will be serving up bar food favorites like Brick Oven Pizzas topped with everything from soprasata to truffle oil and romano, mini ahi sliders and slow roaster bbq pulled pork sliders, while seasoned New York comedian, Brian Scolaro forks over the laughs. Once you've chowed down and had some drinks you'll want to head up to UPSTAIRS AT RUSH STREET to catch a serious case of the giggles (seat reservations are recommended, but not required). The fun starts at 8:30 p.m. Give 'em a call to get your seats: 310-837-9546

Other Things to Do: Dine out and determine if where you ate was a Kitchen Nightmare, take a closer look at the Cross Roads of the World, hit the movie theatres, or eat on the cheap at Grand Central Market.
