Support your source for local news!
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 you're going out tonight, here are some logistics you might want to consider:

  • Beginning tonight, some freeway lane and ramps will close for the Tournament of Roses. If you plan on taking the 134, 210 or 710, read more here.
  • And if you're driving, you may want to lay off the liquor and stay safe. Besides a saturation of police on the streets looking for drunks, there will be two checkpoints in Hollywood and in the NoHo Arts District. More info here.
  • For those who can take advantage of this, do it. Metro is offering 24-hour service on the Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Gold and Orange lines. It is also free between the hours of 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. on all available Metro transit options. More info here.
  • The Auto Club is offering free tipsy tows tonight and tomorrow. More info here.

Happy New Year!
