When you live in a community, you want to do all that you can to support it and the businesses around you. The more the businesses can thrive and accommodate the people in the area, the more chances there are for growth and prosperity for everyone. That is why more people are looking to get involved in local events, do their shopping in local stores and take advantage of the local entertainment and recreation available. Unfortunately, many people have a hard time keeping up with what is going on in the local area and may not even be aware of everything that is around them. That is why we have sought to do things in the Silver Lake area that can help to bring us together as a community. You can explore all that is going on in the region when you take advantage of our website at Silverlandia.

Can’t make it to Coachella this year? Bootie LA at The Echo has come to the rescue!

So Coachella sold out before you could get tickets to the big festival? Then come out for the next best thing: Bootchella! Bootie SF resident DJ Tripp joins Bootie LA’s own ShyBoy in playing music from Coachella artists past and present throughout the night! But there’s one big twist — they’ll all be mashed up! For the Midnight Mashup Show, rock and roll chanteuse Kat Robichaud joins ShyBoy to belt out mashups live, while resident dance crew R.A.I.D. put on their best festival outfits to throw down go-go madness for you all night! Plus SceneSnaps captures it all, and free Bootie mashup CDs for the first 100 people through the door! It might not be the “real” Coachella, but it’s 3000 percent cheaper and you won’t get sunburned! Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup — and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. Voted “Best Club Night” for the past nine years, Bootie celebrates pop culture both past and present, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party, it’s a place where everyone is welcome. And with free mashup CDs given away like candy, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation. For all Bootie parties worldwide: http://BootieMashup.com...

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.

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.

Echo Park Lake Vendors Under Pressure

Echo Park Lake Vendors Under Pressure

  Echo Park Lake is under fire once again after a 40 million dollar renovation, and a two year hiatus, less than a year after it’s reopening. Like many public spaces in Los Angeles, vendors of various goods have begun to set up shop in any location possible. Places with open areas such as public parks are the most susceptible, as it contains no roads, and draws a great deal of foot traffic. Though many residents have expressed support for the lower income vendors trying to make a living, many people who live closer to the park have taken an opposite stance. “My fiance and I live right on Park Ave. at Echo Park Lake and this has definitely been a major issue since the lake reopened. We agree that vendors should be allowed to come and make an honest income but over the summer the explosion of vendors has become too much since there is no regulation. It is not uncommon to see 6-8 vendors circling the children’s playground – making it difficult for parents to monitor their children while they play. One vendor even brings two shetland ponies and offers children rides at a cost. The ponies eat the grass and defecate close to areas where food is prepared and children are playing. its disgusting and very unsafe.”  From Pony rides, to un-refrigerated goods being prepared on top of shopping carts, there seems to be no regulations in place. However, many residents, patrons, and families are seeking help from the city, who put so much into fixing the park to keep it regulated. As of late, there was a proposed ordinance in place, but has been rejected. As of late there is no regulation enforcement and the issue is being sent o city...
