We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

If Thursdays find you thirsty, check out the opening night of the Sunset Strip Market featuring Craft Beers, Wines and Local Farmers this week. The WeHo market formerly known as just the Sunset Strip Market will now have select breweries and wineries on hand offering samples of their products, and you can purchase and take home your favorites. Fresh, locally grown produce and artisanal foods are still a staple of the market, but the new spotlight on alcohol reflects the growing craft beer industry. Guests receive 10 tasting tickets, so the hunt is on to choose wisely among the vendors.

Some alcohol vendors you can expect include breweries Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Firestone Beer, New Belgium Brewing; wineries Chalkhill, Lincourt, Sebastiani and Guenoc; and spirits Tito's Vodka and Jack Daniels.

While you're establishing your buzz, you can get a bite from one of the five rotating food trucks (this week it's Coolhaus, Cousins Maine Lobster, Carb & Nation, Trailer Park and Komodo) or enjoy live music performances. This Thursday, Barbara Morrison & The Bu Crew (jazz/blues) will be playing.

Also new, the market has added ping pong tables and a virtual gaming truck with video games and TVs playing sports.
