there are some new & exciting things happening on the east side of town! first of all, my favorite neighborhood wine bar and fellow echo park chamber member citysip LA started blogging at sippin the city. owner nicole daddio runs a wonderful wine bar & shop staffed with people who really love wine and all have great recommendations. i’m looking forward to reading more about exciting wines to try.
another thing i’ve been watching & waiting for: the silver lake branch of the LA library just opened. there is a full article on laist.com which includes this quote: “Built to the environmentally-friendly gold LEED standards, native plants line the building, solar power dot the roof, showers and a changing room for cycling-inclined employees is found behind closed doors, among many other aspects.” i pass this site all the time, and have been really curious to visit and use it.
finally, the metro gold line eastside extension is now open! watching the train system grow in los angeles has been a wonderful thing. i didn’t ride on opening day, but i will be sure to take a tour of all the stations in the next month, hopefully using this awesome foodie guide to gold line eastside extension!
