PhiLAnthropist Gift Guide: Gifts That Give More, Part I

The holiday season is all about giving. We know that. Somewhere in between waking up at 3am for the doorbuster deals, braving the mall crowds and boycotting consumerism all together, we can maintain our "holiday sanity" by buying gifts that support those organizations working to drive social change and improve the lives of others. We've divided this into two parts. Part I lists those gifts for when you actually need to present the recipient with a tangible good, otherwise, you ruined the Festivus...for everyone. In Part II, you'll find organizations that use your donation to give a gift to someone else less fortunate

Sorry, No Numbers: 818ers Wonder WTF is Up With the 747 Overlay Code

Photo by honeybeejen via the LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr Back in April of 2008 we remarked that the announcement of a new overlay area code--a code within an existing code area for use with new numbers when all previous numbers have been assigned--was "not a big deal."

Photo Essay: 826LA's Echo Park Time Travel Mart

Although it may look like a convenience store from a distance, as you draw closer, it's obvious that 826LA's "Echo Park Time Travel Mart" is something special. After all, it's not every day you get to purchase items that appear to be from the distant well as the future! Some of the products are so whimsical that first-time visitors often ask, "Is this actually for sale?" Items range from "Robot Milk" to "Barbarian Repellent," and once inside the store, you can't help but feel like you've stepped into a space-time way station.

LA Craft Beer Festival Recap: LA Ready for Craft Beer Culture

While we can debate over the burritos in LA vs. SF to no end, it is hard to argue over which city has a more prevalent beer culture.

Tonight 17-year-old Australian singer-songwriter sensation Gabriella Cilmi will be performing at the Hotel Café. English psych rocker Pop Levi will be rocking out at the Echoplex for 826LA's Tiny Vaudeville.

Concert Review: 826LA with Zooey Deschanel, Julie Buxbaum & Paul F. Tompkins @ Largo 2/16/08

As far as live variety shows go, it doesn't get much better than the 826LA Book*Smart events at Largo. The event, which usually takes place once a month, features an author, a comedian and a musician. Saturday's event centered around headliner Zooey Deschanel, who blew the audience away with her vocal chops and helped raise funds for 826LA with sewn duck heads (it'll make sense as you keep reading).

826LA at Largo

It's easy to forget that there's a thriving literary scene here in LA. It's also easy to lose sight of the fact that there are people who are committed to doing good, making change and making the city a better place for the next generation. 826LA manages to combine all of these things at once. The brainchild of hipster deity Dave Eggers, the family of non-profits now known as 826 National was originated in...
