Normandie Bakery restaurant review - HIDDEN TREASURE

After years of driving up and down Jefferson Boulevard between La Cienega and La Brea, I knew that the junky Expo Line took up one side and warehouses the other. Not much to see.



But then a friend, a Westsider no doubt, told me she went for coffee near the corner of Jefferson and La Cienega. I was incredulous. There's nothing in that area.



Boy was I wrong.

Thanks to Eddie

Thanks Eddie for introducing this site to the Sutro Ave Block Club. Hope everyone comes out to our Block Club Yard Sale. I missed the last two, but I am looking forward to being with my neighbors and selling a lot of good stuff, enjoying the friendship & eating the good food. Hope to see everyone on May 19, 2007, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lets have a good time together.

Sutro Avene Block Club Yard Sale - Join us on May 19

Time for spring cleaning. We're buying an ad in the Wave and putting up signs around the neighborhood (don't worry, we take them all down). From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. come look at our stuff. Some of us are barbecuing, too. Ten percent of our profits will go back to the block club, which just fought and won a battle to get our street repaved and the water main fixed (More on that later) But let me know if you want to throw your own yard sale on May 19, if you live near the 4100 block… Continue

Sutro Avenue Block Club meeting - and Yard Sale planning

The second meeting of the year is this Saturday, April 14, at 11 a.m. The next big event to be planned is the third annual Annual Sutro Avenue Block Club Yard sale.



Every year this gets more fun, we get rid of stuff in the garage we don't want, make a little money and spend the day with our neighbors and our friends. Last year many of us barbecued and sold the extras. A few of our neighbors - no names here - bought a cocktail shaker from us and got their money out of it… Continue

SAVE LEIMERT with a FUBU

Hello to the people of FUBU,



We would like you to consider opening a flagship store in Leimert Park, the SOUL of Los Angeles.



Resident John Singleton calls this area the black "Greenwich Village."

Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald lived here. The Washington Post

declared: "one of the country's last strongholds of old-style African

American culture and activism, with the happening ethnic flavor of

Washington's pre-1968 U Street… Continue

Welcome to Leimert Park!

I feel love in Leimert Park, what can I say. I moved here just over two years ago and was immediately embraced by my new neighbors. Now they are my friends. And that's why I created this site. I wanted that sense of community to grow in spite of the fact that most of us just don't have the time.



Technology can make coming together easier than ever, and if people participate, more rewarding. Notice that you can post to this column, add photos, ask questions and start discussions on the… Continue
