Stimulus Plan: Melrose Night Debuts Tonight

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.

As part of a local stimulus plan, from 6-10 pm, patrons can get 10% off entire purchases at participating stores and food trucks. (To get the discount, show a receipt from any participating food truck or store and vice versa.)

There's of course, limited parking. A lot has been set aside at Sportie LA (7753 Melrose) but mostly you'll have to take your chances with street parking. Enjoy your food at the back lot of the Barracuda Shop @ 7769 Melrose Avenue.
