More Press for LAist

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

It's been a banner week for LAist with press mentions in Los Angeles Magazine and now a great mention in today's Los Angeles Times. (Click here to read the piece, although a subscription may be required.)

In the article, LA Times journalist Scott Timberg discusses the gaudy building located at 8500 Melrose Avenue, which was previously mentioned by LAist in our Tear it Down: 8500 Melrose Avenue Edition feature that ran late last year...and gives our beloved site their very own shout-out as well as soliciting quotes from contributors Jessica Ritz and Paul Davidson.

As for 8500 Melrose Boulevard -- maybe such mainstream "negative press" about the "so-80's it's over" style may finally give LAist and all its fervent anti-8500 Melrose commentators a dream they never thought they'd someday experience that we like to call...full demolition.
