We sat down with Kathryn Schloessman, President of the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, to discuss why Los Angeles is a premiere destination for all things sports!
Back when people started settling Little Tokyo in 1885, the very first business was a restaurant called Kame. Immigration from Japan to work in agriculture, and mass relocation from San Francisco following the legendary 1906 earthquake, led to the largest Japanese-American community in the U.S., which grew to 35,000 people by 1942. A dark period in U.S. history forced Japanese-Americans to live in internment centers during World War II. The neighborhood’s history shows that it wasn’t until the 1970s that Japanese-Americans managed to institute a Little Tokyo revival (including food) that still continues to thrive and diversify. Discover five of the neighborhood’s best dishes.
Highland Park has been a working class hotbed for taco trucks and casual Mexican restaurants for decades. In the past five years, the neighborhood has seen trendy redevelopment take place on two fronts: York Boulevard and Figueroa Street. Now certain blocks could pass for Abbot Kinney Boulevard, given all of the boutiques, bars, and fashionable restaurants. Of course residents haven’t welcomed every addition with open arms, but we’ve identified flavorful new neighborhood favorites. Discover five of the best dishes in Highland Park spanning different Asian and European cuisines.
Los Angeles is quickly becoming a major league city, thanks in part to the recent additions of new sports teams and new state-of-the-art stadiums. Earlier this spring, the Los Angeles Football Club, Major League Soccer’s newest expansion team, became the third professional sports team in as many years to kick off their inaugural season in Los Angeles and the first to have a brand new stadium to call home.
City Market Social House, a contemporary, beautifully-restored warehouse, is the latest addition to event space in downtown, located in the Los Angeles Fashion District. The property has over 14,000 square feet of full service indoor and outdoor space for up to 1,000 guests.
