Accepts major credit cards.

When I first drove by Mia on Eagle Rock Boulevard, I was -- as our surfing friends would say -- stoked to see a new sushi joint in the works. Eagle Rock is Los Angeles' latest up-and-coming neighborhood, its turf yet untainted by an overabundance of commercial shenanigans. Its residents still enjoy a semblance of peace and quiet in the vicious sprawl that is Los Angeles. But don't... Read More
In the days of the Golden Hollywood era, the Brown Derby was the place to be. The Derby started as a cute little restaurant in Hollywood shaped like a derby hat. It soon spread to 3 other locations throughout Hollywood, all of which were bombarded with old time movie stars, swing dancers and night-clubbers. Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, and Lucille Ball were some of the faces you might have seen frequenting these hot spots. Sadly however, to date there is only one Derby left as the rest have been turned into malls, parking lots or offices. The last of the original Derbies stands on Los... Read More
Ya know if the homeless problem in downtown los angeles could just send a post card to Oprah...maybe she would help buy them a loft or for that matter a whole building. And then I wouldn't see people daily for a whopping dollar and a shiney nickel getting completely gacked outta thier minds lost to the gates of...now this raises and interesting question? The gates of Hell, is there really such a place? Some argue, we're living it. Me, well, I think there is a place that life is very peacefull...I use terms like "outta" because I think the soul, the voice we speak through here on earth, escapes... Read More

Seeing that the NFL is still interested in doing business with the L.A. Coliseum, Hollywood Thoughts figured we'd throw-in our own two-cents on the whole shebang...
For a long while we've thought it would be a wise idea to create a 'golden triangle' of L.A.'s more interesting -- but less-utilized -- cultural and entertainment venues.
Specifically, we'd like to see an above-ground monorail built that would connect the L.A. Coliseum/ Natural History Museums to downtown's Broadway Street (home of the Million Dollar, Los Angeles and Orpheum movie palaces). Another spur could connect with the Convention... Read More
A small plane just crashed in a high-rise of Manhattan. The 50 story luxury residential building is located on Manhattan's Upper East Side at 72nd Street and York Avenue. Videos from the scene show at least 3 apartments completely in flames. Debris are falling off the building leading to the evacuation of the area. No casualties have been reported yet. It is unclear if the crash is an act of terrorism. Read More
If you didn't attend the 1st Annual LA Weekly Detour Music Festival this past Saturday, you did indeed miss out.
Gates opened at 2pm and the music played on until about 11pm. A total of four stages were set up among the blocked off streets allowing one to wander around as one pleased. Aside from the music stages, a variety of vendors lined up along the streets which included everything from food to clothes to music.
Considering there were a multitude of bands one could choose from, it was a bit difficult to decide who to see. My lineup began with Blackalicious leading to Blonde Redhead, Peeping... Read More
