“I can't imagine a more perfect autumn Saturday in Los Angeles,” said actor Ed Helms, co-founder of The Bluegrass Situation. “A full day festival with amazing roots music, family activities and L.A.’s favorite local food vendors, all outdoors at the stunning Greek Theatre tucked within Griffith Park. If only you could also have a cold beer right at sunset. Oh wait... you can!”

A key element of this strategy is TSA Pre✓®, an agency initiative that expedites the security screening process at over 130 airports nationwide for low-risk passengers. TSA Pre✓® allows travelers flying on one of 11 participating carriers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels in a carry-on bag. This program enables TSA to provide the most effective security in the most efficient way, while enhancing the passenger experience at U.S. airports.

Clifton's spanned 16,000-square-feet of faux redwoods, frolicking forest creatures, scenic murals, a brook babbling with limeade and a 20-foot waterfall cascading over artificial rocks. To say that Clifton’s was unique is like saying LeBron James is a pretty decent basketball player. Imagine a larger-than-life diorama designed by Walt Disney on a Pine Sol-fueled bender. Simply put, it was unlike any other restaurant in Los Angeles.
