Thanks L.A. Weekly and I’ll See You Tuesday

A lot of you know I’m not one to toot my own horn; but you also know that when a blog wins an award such as L.A.

Welcome to LA Streetsblog

Welcome to LA Streetsblog. I could call this the first post, but you can see all of my previous writings from Street Heat have moved with me. Even the stupid ones. Like this one. And let me say, tagging 275+ posts in one evening? Not fun. All that being said, let this post be sort […]

Next Steps…

Photo: Alex C. Thompson Photography Friends, When I sat down with Aaron Naperstek and Mark Gorton nearly three years ago to discuss bringing Streetsblog to Los Angeles, we weren’t certain how it would work.
