Tortas+Art+Music+Craft Beer: MAN ONE Mural Unveiling at La Chuperia (Torta Spot) in Lincoln Heights

carbonacion (1)

What if I told you there’s an old school spot on the Eastside combining my four loves—tortas, street art, music and craft beer all in one place? Would you believe me? You should.

The Torta Spot in Lincoln Heights is flipping the script by continuing it’s tradition of serving up some of the tastiest tortas in the city (since 1990) and supporting dope local art. What’s new? Well, they are now offering an inspired selection of craft brews through it’s newest incarnation: La Chuperia (Spanish for “the drinking place” or “a place to get your sip on”).

The coolest part is the unveiling of a new mural at the spot by street art legend, MAN ONE on Thursday, March 5, 2015. He’ll also be signing prints. The shin dig will go from 8pm-12am. 21 and over, please. AC the PD will be spinning some real deal hip hop all night. Come ready to get your eat, dance and sip on! See you there!

Pasadena based artist-run non profit SIDE STREET PROJECTS has released a pocket sized version of their woodworking bus (often spotted on LA’s FWYs). The mini woodworking bus was cartoonishly drafted by SFV painter Javier Ramirez who we kicked it with back in August. The Side Street Project’s woodworking buses bring artist-taught woodworking classes to all the 3rd graders in Pasadena Unified School District and schools across LA county. Kids can take woodworking classes at their Pasadena headquarters and the bus has been known to crash bday parties. They’ve also got a constant rotation of artist projects,  an equipment coop and a range of other artist services to get involved with.

Bang for your Burger Buck: The Village Kitchen – Filipinotown



The Village Kitchen: where getting bang for your burger buck also means doing the right thing. The Mayor may not be sitting on a stoop, bugging Mookie to do the right thing like he did on a certain, very hot day in Bed Stuy circa 1989; but he would agree that eating at Village Kitchen is supporting a worthy cause.
