On the beach near the Public Art Walls ("Graffiti Walls") and existing skate dance area near Windward Avenue and Ocean Front Walk Venice Beach at 11 this morning you'll find Councilmember Bill Rosendahl and local professional and amateur skaters gathered to celebrate the beginning stages of construction for a long awaited skateboard park. Since Venice Beach has been a hot spot for skateboarders and skaters from around the world to test their skills, the City thought it was high time they got a proper park, so construction is now underway for a 16,000 square foot state of the art skate park facility that includes installation of an entry plaza and surrounding walls, construction of concrete walkways, removal of existing rock revetment at the site, restoration of power to an existing lifeguard tower and landscaping and irrigation. Help the community welcome the park!

It's the last day of LA's Art Month, and tonight, BREADBAR West Third continues its Art Foundation Series with the opening reception for “Rooftops,” a unique exhibit of works from acclaimed Russian composer, artist, and photographer Andrew Akopov. Unifying the vocabularies of fine art and cuisine under one roof, Angelenos and art aficionados can enjoy a special four course prix-fixe menu ($24) from Executive Chef Rogelio Marhx; as a perk, guests will also be presented with an amuse-bouche at the start of the evening and complimentary champagne, coffee, and sparking wine throughout the night. Reservations are suggested (online/ (310) 205-0124) for tonight's opening and dinner from 6-9 p.m., but if you dine at BREADBAR in the following days you can still enjoy their food and see--or buy--Akopov's work.
