Baseball season kicks off today as pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training. The Dodgers already have a nice group of players working out the team facility in Arizona, which means as a fan it’s time for you to practice drinking beer, wearing hats, and yelling at Don Mattingly’s bone-headed bullpen bloopers.
It’s been very hard to find one of the most sought-after Dodgers caps– Dodger blue with a Dodgers logo “D” instead of “LA”. The team’s new AAA affiliate in Oklahoma City has come to the rescue with this Dodgers D fitted cap. The team plans to wear these hats as alternate home caps to compliment their standard “OKC” version. We assume supplies are pretty limited so if you’ve been scouring ebay for this lid, you may want to jump on this now before word gets out.

We love Matteo— not only have they been holding it down in the Arts District long before most of the other creative businesses moved in, they make the best and most comfortable sheets, blankets and other linens. In fact, Matteo has been in the Arts District since 1996 and just last year expanded to Boyle Heights.
Every year they do a sample sale which is your chance to get stuff for 60-90% off… it all starts Thursday and goes through the weekend so get ready.

Last weekend, Bad Mood Boutique celebrated one year in business with a group art show in the City of Long Beach. Shop Owner Amber Dominguez rounded up an interesting set of artists who were able to interpret the Bad Mood style into photos and artwork. Artists included Garrett McGurer, Joe Goblyn, Sifry Borrayo, Brian Hayashi, Paul Carrillo, and Photographer Luixe. The show’s theme was centered around the photos that give Bad Mood their unique modern vintage image. Over the last year Amber Dominguez has built Bad Mood up to be one of Long Beach’s must-see stores. McGurer’s aka GRT MGR art pieces accentuated and illustrated vibrant fashion details into framed digital images. Brian Hayashi’s clever geometric mashups had people taking a closer look to identify the ancient hieroglyphic patterns. Watercolor illustrations done by Joe Goblyn created a dream-like look to the photos and gave the impression of a cool fall day. Photographer Luixe’s works commanded your eyes to see the delicate ambient light sources used to warmly light the vintage looks put together with original pieces from the Bad Mood Collection. The photos were so finely executed you thought you were looking back into the 70’s. The party was a hit, the dj was hot and the drinks were cold. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to celebrate and document the evening click the link for more photos of the art, the crowd, and the vibes…

OSS opened Novemeber 15th in Downtown L.A. on 5th Street, the only shop of its kind in Los Angeles. The shop grew from the well known BMX blog and YouTube channel The Come Up, which is pretty amazing in and of itself. We’re (obv) huge fans of anyone who can turn an online outlet into a legitimate community and then an actual destination store in Downtown LA, so job well done Adam and Rob! In the above video, OSS’s co-founder Adam22 talks about the evolution and founding of the company, and what he wants to bring to the BMX game in LA.
Check out some photos from the site’s opening night in November below…
