Sit Back Saturday

May 01, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Do you have your cup of morning java by your side, or do you prefer the term Joe, or even coffee? Perhaps your beverage of choice is tea.

Whatever your morning beverage may be, it’s that time of the week or should we say weekend, where Travelin’ Local was busy all week scouring the World Wide Web to bring you some of the best news, stories, and blog posts about those things and issues that are important and close to home.

So hold all calls, put that blackberry aside, turn down the television or radio, and make some time for yourself for a few of this week’s articles from some fellow Los Angeles scribes:

  • Have you ever thought about overdosing at Starbucks? No not that kind of overdose. Over at Californiality, a “Big dose of California culture” comes with a “Starbucks cuppa of Joe.”
  • History, Los Angeles features the mosaic panel on the Schoenberg at UCLA. What a beauty.
  • A part of Los Angeles history that isn’t talked about enough, perhaps, is our history of segregation that took place here. Bruce’s Beach was the only beach in Los Angeles County that was open to everyone regardless of race. L.A. Kompany features a wonderful photo series of Bruce’s Beach; Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
  • Like most people, I love a good sale. One that benefits the Hollywood Sunset Free Clinic is even better. You can get the full scoop over at The Eastsider LA.
  • Will’s finds a video that almost brings tears of joy to his eyes. The film will be headlining at the upcoming Long Beach Bike Festival. Check it out as this is a must see.
  • If you’re looking for a little inspiration, LA Runner has put together a video collection of some of his favorites. Note–it’s not just for runners.
  • With the wildflowers popping, Veronica over at LA Places went to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve and shot several outstanding photos. Definitely worth a gander so be sure to check them out.
  • SPARC and Beyond Baroque Need Your Help! A proposal by the City of Los Angeles City Administrator Officer’s office would eliminate the $1.00 per-year leases for 116 nonprofit organizations (approximately 16 arts organizations) working in the interest of the public.” Find out how you can help over at Yo Venice!

I don’t think it will take too much luck for this weekend to prove to be bright and sunny, so let’s have some fun, Los Angeles!
