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.

This Saturday, November 10, East of Borneo will be hosting a culinary event where artists, writers, and curators will step out of their comfort zone, presenting a gallery of edible work rather than the traditional mediums they craft with. The event, called "Eats of Borneo," will be hosted at the Blum and Poe Gallery on La Cienega from 6-11 p.m., and will raise money for the online magazine, which curates editorial content on contemporary art and its history considered from a Los Angeles perspective. Ticketsare $35 in advance and $40 at the door, and include food and one drink voucher. Seoul Sausage will also be at Eats doling out bangers and their famous balls. And in case that's not enough, we'll be there too, along with Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, so so should you. Here's a list of the participating artists-cum-foodcrafters and their wares:
