Costco changes its food court policy: You gotta be a member

Shoppers who enjoy cheap hot dogs, churros and pizza from Costco’s food court soon will have to buy a $60 club membership to enjoy them.

Cecil Castellucci talks surprising resurrection of Plain Janes, her graphic novels about artful teen girls

In 2007, DC Comics’ teen girl-centric imprint Minx published the graphic novel “The Plain Janes” by Cecil Castellucci and artist Jim Rugg; the story concerned high school students who make art installations covertly around their small town. While a sequel hit shelves a year later, Minx ultimately folded and the series was left incomplete. That is, until now: Little, Brown Young Readers just released an omnibus edition last month, including the first two tales and one new one, “Janes Attack Back....

Lakers game against Clippers Tuesday is postponed

When it happens, it’ll go down among the most meaningful games in Staples Center history. And, at the same time, relatively meaningless. But for now, the NBA announced Monday afternoon that it was postponing Tuesday’s game between the Lakers and Clippers, to be rescheduled at a later date. “The decision was made out of respect for the Lakers organization, which is deeply grieving the tragic loss of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven other people in a helicopter crash Sunday...

Lakers, Clippers will weather emotional night when they meet Tuesday

It’ll go down among the most meaningful games in Staples Center history. And, at the same time, relatively meaningless. The Lakers will host the Clippers on at 7 p.m. Tuesday, two days after Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas along with eight others, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. They’ll play the game in “the house that Kobe Bryant built,” as Alicia Keys put it in her address as host of the Grammy Awards, the music awards show that was held at Staples Center, ...

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope shakes off bumpy start, finds perfect fit with Lakers

PHILADELPHIA — It was meant to be a putback. An easy shot. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope threw the ball back up toward the rim almost as quickly as he collected the rebound. Then, his heart sank as the ball stuck between the rim and the backboard – an unlikely result that added to his run of misfortune whenever he tried to do something that’s come naturally for so much of his life: score. This was not the plan. Feeling a special season ahead, Caldwell-Pope devoted more time than ever this offseason t...

Analysis: As LeBron James turns 35, the Lakers star offers glimpse into how his game will change

LOS ANGELES — When it comes to LeBron James, nothing might be more precious than time. His 35th birthday was mere hours away after a Sunday victory over the Dallas Mavericks. When he was asked about getting another year older, he protested. “I’m not 35 yet,” he said, prompting laughter from the locker room. “If I was back home then I would be 35. I live in L.A. now. Don’t count me out just yet.” Sure enough, on Monday morning, James celebrated his 35th year by posting Instagram videos from the L...

As the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary this weekend, it’s easy to forget what a rare and unexpected surprise the very first fest was in 1999. First of all, most of you weren’t there – only 20,000 or so fans “filled” the Empire Polo Field to hear artists such as the Chemical Brothers and Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Second, those few who were there had never seen anything like it. Crisp green grass instead of asphalt or dirt. Reasonable prices at the ...
