California beer drinkers will get their first taste of New York’s Brooklyn Brewery: Here’s the deal

You can get a pint of Brooklyn Brewery’s flagship lager in Australia, Belgium, France, Brazil and Japan. Or in Kentucky, Ohio or Texas. Despite exporting thousands of barrels of beer worldwide, you couldn’t get even a can or bottle of this celebrated brew in our craft beer-loving state until now. “I’m very excited to come to California. Literally for 30 years we’ve had distributors and ex-New Yorkers hounding us like, ‘Why aren’t you in California? I had your beer in Paris, in Tokyo. Why can’t I...

Muse, The Killers, Bishop Briggs and more mix things up at the 2nd Annual ALT 98.7/FM ALTer Ego

Alt 98.7/FM’s 2nd Annual iHeartRadio ALTer Ego bash sold out at The Forum in Inglewood on Saturday night and it had quite an impressive line-up with show-topping performances courtesy of arguably two of the biggest modern day rock bands: Muse and The Killers. Though The Killers, fearlessly led by the charismatic Brandon Flowers, brought the mostly lethargic crowd to life via its much too short — but hit-filled — set, they don’t get all of the credit. Maybe it’s still super early in the year and ...

Recipe: On a keto diet? Try making this portobello mushroom pizza

January seems like the unofficial go-on-a-diet month. For many that means embracing a trendy keto-compliant regime, a high-protein low-carb eating plan that many assume implies “meat-heavy” menus. A new cookbook, “The Essential Vegetarian Keto Cookbook” from the editors at Rodale Books (Rodale Books, $14.99), offers a strategy for vegetarians to embrace the eating plan. A keto diet requires creativity when making classic comfort foods. Portobello mushrooms can be a replacement for the bread in p...

NORTH HOLLYWOOD — Primetime Emmy voters will no longer view TV shows on DVDs as they cast their ballots starting in 2020, the Television Academy announced Friday.

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

Blaze Pizza is testing a larger-sized pizza at a single Pasadena location

Individual pan pizzas are great, but they’re not always large enough to successfully share with more than a friend. So Blaze Pizza, whose 11-inch pies offer six slices, is now testing a 14-inch pizza that yields eight slices. The only catch? They’re only testing it at a single Pasadena Blaze Pizza location at 667 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. The large pizza is available for $13.95 with one topping and $19.95 for a build-your-own.

Nutrition: How to create a healthy relationship with food for your children

From the beginning, babies and young children have the innate ability to eat intuitively. Naturally, they eat when they are hungry and stop when they have had enough. Positive experiences with food and eating as a child results in a healthier relationship with food as an adult. Parents, close family members and other caregivers help shape this food relationship. Keeping the conversation about food emotionally neutral can be challenging for adults who have their own complex histories with food an...

How to clear out your closets and keep old clothes out of landfills

Cleaning out the closet has never been a simple task, just ask anyone who is currently obsessed with Marie Kondo. But all that tidying up is complicated by the negative impact fashion waste has had on the environment. The United States Environmental Protection Agency reported that, in 2015, 10.5 million tons of discarded textiles ended up in landfills. That’s a lot of wasted material. And while hoarding everything isn’t likely an option – do you really need the shirt that hasn’t fit right in dec...

5 garden tips for this week, Jan. 19-25

1. Lose the leaves Rose leaves that remain on the plants through winter often succumb to troublesome diseases, such as the powdery-orange rose rust fungus; and the diseases start earlier in the season then spread to infect newer leaves and other plants (such as lawn grasses). So if you haven’t pruned your roses, do so this weekend. And be sure to remove ALL of the old rose leaves (even if you already pruned your roses) in order to have a prettier garden and healthier plants this spring and summe...

Gardening: How to prune your trees and roses to keep them healthy

Historically speaking, tree pruning is a relatively recent phenomenon, developed as a necessity when trees began to be planted in close proximity to where people lived, worked, or congregated. It’s just not a pleasant feeling when a branch falls on your house, your car, or on your head. For centuries, trees were kept exclusively in the forest. The idea of planting one next to where you lived was never considered. But then, beginning with the industrial revolution in the late 18th century, as mas...
