Grab your forks and don’t spoil your appetite, the East Side Food Festival is coming to Silverlake. The date is set for Sunday November 9  4-8pm. With vendors from all across the board the festival is sure to draw many patrons of both food and culture. Held in the beautiful Mack Sennet studios, vendors and festival goers alike can enjoy a modicum of samples and various delectables from their favorite restaurants.   Though it has drawn some debate from the name, due to it not being on the technical “east side” they defend their name saying “…In our version of the east side of LA, we basically include all neighborhoods east of Western. This includes Los Feliz, Silverlake, East Hollywood, Koreatown, DTLA, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Atwater, Echo Park, etc”n Live DJ’s, raffles, prizes, and book signings will also be taking place.

LA adds new Bike Buffer Zone

LA adds new Bike Buffer Zone

By on Sep 22, 2014 in At Water Village News, echo park, Echo Park News, General Posts, Local News, Los Feliz News, Silver Lake News |

andrew

Los Angeles is getting more bike friendly than ever before. Cyclists are being given a three foot buffer zone legally or drivers could face penalties if seen breaking the law. Over the last few years road rage incidents, and bike to car accidents have risen, despite the 200 miles of new bike lanes painted in. Road rage is no foreign concept to any angelino, as many police reports, sometimes upwards in the thousands, involve some element of road rage, reckless driving, and overall carelessness behind the wheel. The new law involves a $120 fine for crossing that buffer zone and endangering cyclists. In 2012 more than 150 cyclists lost there lives in auto related accidents, prompting further action state wide. Localized action took place beginning with the “every lane is a bike lane” slogan. The new law is already in effect and will enforced strictly. Automobile Commuters and cyclists must learn even more to share the road as bicycles are considered vehicles with the same rights, rules, and regulations as a normal...

7 Tips to Survive the LA Heatwave

7 Tips to Survive the LA Heatwave

By on Sep 16, 2014 in At Water Village News, echo park, Echo Park News, General Posts, Local News, Los Feliz News, Silver Lake News, Silverlandia, summer nights |

andrew

Los Angeles has been hit with a heatwave this week, with blistering temperatures over 95 degrees to the 100s on a consistent basis. Over 4000 homes have been left without power, with temperatures spiking into triple digits. California’s mountain ranges have also been issued a red flag warning for forest fires, while a heat advisory for the city is under way. If you’re one those who has lost power, make sure you are taking precautionary measures to keep you and your loved ones safe during the heatwave. Heatstroke can easily cause confusion and make people disoriented, incapable of good judgment. In every case prevention is the best step to take. 1. Eliminate excess heat sources. This means the oven, desktop computers, laptops, heavy machinery, etc. Anything giving off heat can contribute to rising temperatures inside ones home. Keep the lights off in rooms you’re not using, and make sure you’re using only whats necessary. After all, the excess consumption of power thru air conditioning units is what caused the power outages to begin with. 2. Drink More Water than normal. The recommended serving is eight 8oz glasses a day, but if caught in a heatwave you’re going to be stepping that up. Add electrolyte supplements or consume drinks that contain electrolytes that have been lost due to excess sweating. Do not consume alcohol, excess coffee, or energy drinks (despite them claiming to be full of electrolytes) as these act as diuretics and promote dehydration. Remember, if you’re thirsty, you’re actually already dehydrated.   3. Recognize heat related illness such as heat rash, heat stroke, heat cramps, and heat exhaustion. These can be serious medical emergencies if left untreated. 4. Take advantage of Water to keep cool. If you afford it, take cool showers, run through the sprinkler, wet your hair, your forehead, wrists, and neck. These points on the body can keep the rest of your body cool if kept cool. Your body has cooling spots all over which you can apply cold compresses, ice packs, and wet cloths to. 5. Prepare your home. Keep the windows shaded as to not let sunshine heat up the room. Use Box fans to circulate air and push hot air out of your...

LA parks now have free WIFI

LA parks now have free WIFI

By on Sep 9, 2014 in At Water Village News, echo park, Echo Park News, free event, General Posts, Local News, Los Feliz News, Silver Lake News, Silverlandia |

andrew

6 parks across Los Angeles are now equipped with free wifi. People can now connect with tablets, smart phones, and tablets  in Cabrillo Beach, Echo Park Lake, Griffith Observatory, Pershing Square, Reseda Park and Venice Beach. This huge step in city communications was made this summer. Globally, internet access is being regarded as more than a commodity but as a necessity. Playing a vital role in social change, worldwide announcements, and social networking, access to wireless internet is gaining more traction as a part of our everyday life. Cities like Santa Fe already have city wide wifi, distributed in timed increments.  The wifi’s intention is to draw more families, friends, and patrons to the park. The internet development was funded by Toyota, with LA’s Department of Recreation and Parks & American Park Network.  The network named, “Oh, Ranger! Wi-Fi” has been in the testing stages since earlier this summer and is finally up and running. Announcements have been made to launch further wifi expansions in other parts of LA. ...
