It was mid-afternoon at Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks — time for margaritas and Happy Hour. Happy hour? Not today. And not for at least two weeks for the venerable L.A. bar and eatery on Ventura Boulevard. Nor was it coming at any of the vintage L.A. watering holes/nightspots that for decades have helped define L.A. and Hollywood. All classic. All weathered and distinct. All embedded in L.A.’s culture. Are they all strong enough to withstand, for now, the opening punch of a pandemic? A reporter’s br...

Papa Bach.

I was looking up a Pound poem in my prized copy of Personae when I noticed the handsome bookmark from Papa Bach Bookstore on Santa Monica Boulevard in L.A., where I presumably bought the book back in December 1978 (over forty years ago! — and I still remember the thrill at finding a reissue of the book, which I’d been wanting for years), and I wondered about the store; turns out it was a legendary institution for a couple of decades (1964 to 1984), with two distinct periods, which you can read a...

Breaking Bad pop-up in Los Angeles

Ok, yeah, it’s cool there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming out next week and all. It’s no trip to Albuquerque, but it’ll be nice to get your Jesse Pinkman fix for the first time in six years.

Oh, wait… here come the guys from Saved by the Max, who just in time for the Breaking Bad ...
