Game Summary

On a typically beautiful LA night, LAFC played it’s first game in Banc of California Stadium, the most expensive and newest soccer specific stadium in the US.

To complete the four-year journey LAFC scored the game winner on a 30-yard kick in the 93rd minute of stoppage time; beating the Seattle Sounders.

First Half

In the first-half, Seattle controlled a majority of the action by attacking the left side and setting up crosses. There were dangerous moments for the home team with opportunities by Midfielders Nicolas Lodeiro and Alex Roldan. But LAFC survived without allowing a goal to be scored in the new stadium.

Second Half

LAFC started much better in the second-half and controlled the action.

Benny Feilhaber had a shot in the 25th minute that went just wide. In the 78th minute, Walker Zimmerman just missed heading a deflection over the bar.

Finally, in stoppage time, 2015 MLS Defender of the Year Laurent Ciman fired a knuckling free kick from 30-yards out that dropped at the last second; finding the back of the net. Clearly with help from Seattle Keeper Stefan Frei who makes the save 99 times out of 100. It was Ciman’s second goal in as many games.

In the post-game press conference, Coach Bob Bradley suggested divine intervention from the “Football Gods”.

The win jumped LAFC into second place of the Western Conference two points behind Sporting KC.

Next Up – May 5th Home Game

Next up is a 1 PM Cinco de Mayo home game against FC Dallas. A Cinco de Mayo match looks to be quite the don’t-miss event considering LAFC’s large Mexican-American fan base.

See you on the Pitch at the World’s Greatest Soccer Stadium !!

Chances are you probably haven’t heard much about visiting LA’s City Hall…unless you’ve done jury duty there or know someone who works there. But, did you know you can visit the observation deck on the 27th floor for FREE and see great views of the city? From a spectacular view of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the entire DTLA skyline, this is one of my favorite views in the city of Los Angeles.

If you are planning a visit to the Observation Deck at LA’s City Hall, you will need to bring a government ID (you check in at the front desk and will get a visitor sticker. You will also have to go through a metal detector.) and go on a weekday during business hours – it’s only open Monday-Friday from 9:00am-5:00pm. You can walk 360 degrees around the outside deck on the 27th floor and enjoy stunning views of the city. LA’s City Hall is located at 200 N. Main St. in downtown Los Angeles.

Olvera Street, in the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, is known as the “birthplace of Los Angeles.” According to the City of Los Angeles, “El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument is near the site of the early Los Angeles pueblo or town where forty-four settlers of Native American, African and European heritage journeyed more than one-thousand miles across the desert from present-day northern Mexico and established a farming community in September 1781.” Today it is home to monumental and historic buildings mostly built in the 1800’s that are open to the public as either businesses or museums and a beautiful outdoor marketplace on Olvera Street, all of which is waiting to be seen and explored.

According to the Olvera Street website, “Olvera Street was created in 1930 ‘to preserve and present the customs and trades of early California.’ Many of the merchants on Olvera Street today are descended from the original vendors.If you are interested in purchasing anything while strolling through the merchants on Olvera Street, you will see a variety of beautiful handcrafted items such as clothing, purses, leather items, art, pottery, jewelry, and more.

Las Angelitas del Pueblo gives free hour-long tours of Olvera Street, Tuesday-Saturday at 10am, 11am, and 12pm (subject to the availability of docents). Click here for more information on the free walking tour, or visit Olvera Street on your own at: 845 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

  1. Check Out The Murals in DTLA’s Arts District

When I first moved to L.A, I had never before seen so much beautiful, colorful street art. The Arts District in Downtown LA, in my opinion, is the best place in the city to see some unique and colorful murals. In this neighborhood, you’ll have plenty of public art and expression to marvel at all around you as you explore – all for free of course. In a city full of grey walls and buildings, prepare to be inspired by the amount of color and self-expression at every turn here.  Click here for a map of the Arts District; feel free to start your adventure anywhere around this area (central starting points could be Angel City Brewery, Wurstkuche, or Umami Burger), walk around and explore at your leisure.

You can also tour the Arts District Murals and Murals around Los Angeles with Cart Wheel Art Tours.  They’ve established a solid reputation and have access to places and spaces that you may not.

Here are some examples of murals located in the Arts District to get you inspired to visit:

Dover Street Market DTLA Los Angeles

Original Article Credit:  Booth Moore For Hollywood Reporter

Just blocks from restaurant hotspots Bestia and Bavel, the newish headquarters for Warner Music Group and Spotify’s regional offices, Comme des Garcons’ Dover Street Market is putting the luxury fashion stamp of approval on downtown L.A.’s burgeoning Arts District, and betting there’s a customer there for the Japanese brand’s gender-bending tailoring, Chanel fine jewelry, Gucci dresses and limited-edition streetwear and sneakers.

On opening weekend, A$AP Rocky, Diane Keaton, Travis Scott, Alessandro Michele and Jimmy Iovine are just a few of the creatives who stopped in to check out the 15,000 square-foot retail space designed by CDG’s Rei Kawakubo that’s part contemporary art museum, part retail playground, with chandeliers and installations from Gary Card, Warren Muller and more. Meanwhile, sneaker heads and streetwear lovers lined up around the block to purchase limited-edition launch merch.

Dover Street Market DTLA Los Angeles

If DSMLA can keep up the momentum, the opening may represent another pillar in Los Angeles’ ascendency as a new global fashion capital, following Hedi Slimane’s moving his Saint Laurent atelier here in 2012, and Tom Ford’s relocation from London in 2017.

 

The L.A. location has been a long time coming for the anti-establishment Comme des Garcons brand, founded in 1969 by Kawakubo, and elevated to a new level of celebrity thanks to the 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute retrospective exhibition and gala.

DG had a pop-up guerilla store in downtown L.A. 15 years ago, and has been looking for a permanent space ever since. “We always liked the idea that for better or worse, this is the place artists and cults have come, even going back to the 1950s with Aldous Huxley,” says Joffe, speaking in L.A. in his wife’s absence (Kawakubo is like the Greta Garbo of fashion; she likes to stay away from the spotlight). “But it always seemed like more of an outback, nice sunshine, good food, a place to holiday. Now L.A. is becoming more like a mainstream alternative of how life can be,” he adds, pointing to the state’s liberal politics, clean air initiatives and more as examples of it becoming its own brand of anti-establishment.

Kues Asian Bistro DTLA Downtown LA

Original Article Credit: Mona Holmes For Eater LA

Wokcano founder Marcus Kwan quickly converted Downtown’s Spear Steakhouse into its newest iteration, Kues Modern Asian Bistro & Bar October 29. Kwan’s vision is a bit more than an 8,000 square foot restaurant, with future plans for a late hours lounge with live music, and DJs. Before Spear, the place was a French-ish restaurant called Le Ka.

Eater spoke with Kwan about the switch, where he outlined his love of traditional Chinese dishes like Peking duck, dim sum, and dan dan noodles. But Kues also offers modern and unconventional choices as well, including lobster uni pasta, wagyu pepper beef, a cauliflower “fried” rice, oxtail stew, and a reasonably-priced raw bar.

Wokcano, with ten locations and another opening soon in Carlsbad, is only one of Kwan’s vast ventures. He opened Wokcano in 2001 only 12 years after immigrating to the U.S. from China. He also opened seafood restaurant C.O.D on West Third in 2016. When it’s expanded to full hours, Kues will serve Monday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. until midnight, Thursday to Saturday until 2 a.m., and Sunday from 5 until 11 p.m.

Related Companies has landed $630 million in construction financing from Deutsche Bank for The Grand, its $1 billion mixed-use development in Downtown Los Angeles, the developer announced this morning.

 

The Los Angeles Times first reported news of the transaction.

The Grand is a Frank Gehry-designed master planned project, aimed at “revitalizing Downtown L.A.’s cultural and civic core,” according to the announcement. It is being developed by Related and also CORE USA—a joint venture between China Harbour Engineering Company and CCCG Overseas Real Estate, who Related announced would be investing $290 million in the project back in December 2016.

 

Located at 100 South Grand Avenue, the development will comprise a mix of retail, hotel, dining, entertainment and residential space. It sits across from the Walt Disney Concert Hall, also designed by Gehry.

 

Related was chosen to develop the sprawling project in 2004, but it faced delays and postponement when the recession hit. With Deutsche Bank’s construction financing locked in, the project will now rise via a public-private partnership with the Los Angeles Grand Avenue Authority, established by a joint powers agreement between the County of Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles, and the former Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA).

Site preparation work begins this month and construction is expected to wrap in 2021.

“Today is an exciting day not just for Related and our partners, including CORE, Deutsche Bank and the Grand Avenue Authority, but for all of Downtown Los Angeles and the region,” Rick Vogel, a senior vice president of Related Urban (the mixed-use division of Related) said in an announcement. “With the close of financing, the momentum on The Grand continues, and Related, the County, City and CRA/LA’s longstanding vision for Grand Avenue will soon become a reality.”

When completed, the project will include a 309-room Equinox Hotel, a 430-seat movie theater and 215,000 square feet of retail space. Its 39-story residential tower will include 436 apartments, 20 percent of which will be affordable.

Last month, The Real Deal reported that The City Council had also approved $200 million in bond financing for the multifamily component.

“I am pleased that The Grand has closed financing and we are moving to the next stage of this development,” Hilda Solis, Los Angeles’ County Supervisor, said in the release. “This project will create permanent jobs and build much-needed affordable housing in my district. With Frank Gehry’s visionary design supporting a variety of community-supporting mixed-use development, I am excited for the future of Grand Avenue and the larger neighborhood.”

“We are excited that this important milestone has been achieved,” Ken Himmel, the CEO of Related Urban, added. “We look forward to celebrating with all of Los Angeles, as we commence construction on this dynamic, transformational project that promises to remake and enliven the Grand Avenue artistic and cultural center of Downtown.”

Officials at Deutsche Bank were not immediately available for comment.

A quiet newcomer is set to open soon inside of a prominent space along 7th Street in Downtown Los Angeles. The name of the inbound restaurant is Moa Kitchen, but the plan for the place is still very much up in the air.

According to the company’s young website, the plan is to serve a variety of pan-Asian foods, but what precisely that means for the menu isn’t known. Craigslist ads for kitchen help describe a master sushi chef — while also calling Moa Kitchen “one of the trendiest / tastiest new restaurant openings” in Downtown LA. There’s also a city paper trail showing a license for a full bar, and hints at an attached project to be called Ahn Bar at some point as well. Other than that, Moa Kitchen’s Instagram page is woefully empty, and emails to owner Kyung Geun Pak have not been returned.

Regardless of the ultimate direction or opening timeline, it seems that Moa Kitchen will have its work cut out right from the start. First there’s the space (which formerly belonged to Guild) and surrounding neighborhood, both of which have seen plenty of change in recent years. Second, there’s a ton of direct pan-Asian competition already, from names like the new Kues and the sprawling Li Orient. Got more details on Moa Kitchen? Hit the tipline, anonymity guaranteed.

ZACH HAMEL (@zachhamel) – CHEF DE CUISINE – KASIH INDONESIAN RESTAURANT

BEFORE I HAD EXPERIENCED MY FIRST SAMBAL TASTING AT KASIH, IT WAS ALREADY CLEAR THAT THIS WAS A NEW KIND OF DTLA RESTAURANT. ASIAN FOOD IS VERY TRENDY BUT INDONESIAN HAS NOT BEEN SHOWCASED LIKE THAI, JAPANESE, INDIAN, AND THE LIKE.

BY ZEROING IN ON THIS UNDERSTATED REGION, AND DOING IT WITH THE KIND OF CONFIDENCE MOST NEED YEARS TO ATTAIN, KASIH BRINGS BACK WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF THAT TRIP TO BALI AND THE FOOD.

CHEF DE CUISINE ZACH HAMEL DELVES INTO UNCHARTED TERRITORY WITH DISHES LIKE BABI GULING –CRACKLING PORK BELLY SERVED OVER BALINESE SALAD, AND BEBEK GORENG — SPICED CRISPY DUCK QUARTERS.

EVERYTHING ABOUT KASIH IS UNDENIABLY IRRESISTIBLE AND BURSTING WITH FLAVOR. AFTER ONE TASTE YOU’LL BE LEFT WONDERING HOW YOU EVER LIVED WITHOUT IT.

INDONESIAN CUISINE 🌶️

INDONESIAN FOOD IS SPICY, FLAVORFUL AND ALL ABOUT CURRY PASTES.

CURRY PASTE VEGETABLES

ZACH SAYS INDONESIAN FOOD IS ABOUT CURRY PASTES, WHICH WERE INTRODUCED BY HINDU MISSIONARIES AROUND 100 A.D.

MAINLY DERIVED FROM EXOTIC VEGETABLES, THEY ARE BLENDED INTO A SMOOTHIE, AND THEN COOKED/SEASONED WITH SPICES.

INDONESIAN CURRY PASTE INGREDIENTS INCLUDE: LEMON GRASS, BIRD-EYE CHILIS, FRESNO CHILIS, SHALLOTS, FRESH TURMERIC, GARLIC, GINGER AND GALANGAL.

ANOTHER INGREDIENT (SHOWN BOTTOM RIGHT) IS BALINESE SEA SALT; WHICH NO DISH LEAVES ZACH’S KITCHEN WITHOUT.

ZACH HAMEL 👨‍🍳

HE LOVES TO COOK AND HE LOVES DTLA

ZACH HAMEL – CHEF DE CUISINE

ZACH HAMEL IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL INDONESIAN CHEF. HE’S ORIGINALLY FROM WISCONSIN AND AT AGE 9 HIS FAMILY MOVED TO THAILAND FOR FOUR YEARS. EATING THAI FOOD EVERY DAY, HE DEVELOPED A TASTE FOR THE REGION’S BOLD & EXOTIC FLAVORS.

BACK HOME IN WISCONSIN, HE PROGRESSED THROUGH VARIOUS COOKING JOBS UNTIL A CONNECTION HELPED HIM LAND AT A JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING RESTAURANT. FROM THERE HE WENT TO LE CORDON BLEU IN BANGKOK. AFTER GRADUATING HE COOKED AROUND THE WORLD INCLUDING BANGKOK,  NEW YORK TO AUSTRALIA DOING STINTS AT RESTAURANTS NAHM, MOMOFUKU AND MS. GS.

OBVIOUSLY HE MADE HIS WAY TO LA AND TO KASIH. HE LOVES DTLA SAYS THE DIVERSITY REMINDS HIM OF TOKYO WHERE HE ALSO WORKED. NOT SURPRISINGLY HIS MAIN PASSION IS COOKING; HE JUST LOVES  TO COOK. HE ENJOYS WHIPPING UP NEW DISHES, IS ALWAYS WORKING ON SOMETHING NEW, AND FEELS REWARDED WHEN A CLIENT LOVES A MEAL.

ON THE THE FOOD/DRINK SIDE, HE PREFERS A BEER AND A LATE NIGHT TACO TRUCK TRIP.

THE KITCHEN 🔪

AN OPEN STYLE KITCHEN IN A CHEF DRIVEN RESTAURANT

KASIH’S OPEN KITCHEN

A FUN OPEN KITCHEN WHERE YOU CAN FEEL THE VIBE. ZACH SAYS KASIH IS A CHEF DRIVEN RESTAURANT WHERE EVERYONE WANTS TO LEARN ABOUT INDONESIAN FOOD. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY ARE MAKING CLIENTS HAPPY AND HELPING THEIR CLIENTS LEARN AND UNDERSTAND INDONESIAN FOOD AS WELL.

THEY AREN’T MAKING TRADITIONAL INDONESIAN DISHES LIKE GRANDMA WOULD MAKE; BUT RATHER MODERN DISHES ADJUSTED TO THE AMERICAN PALETE. THEIR CORE VALUE IS CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT AND THEY ARE DOING THAT WHILE BRINGING IN NEW DISHES WITH HIGH QUALITY INGREDIENTS.

SELECTIONS FROM THE MENU 📜

KEY SELECTIONS FROM ZACH’S MENU.

A MENU CREATED AFTER 8 MONTHS OF TRIAL AND ERROR WITH ZACH AND HIS SOUS CHEF NICK LEARNING ABOUT INDONESIAN FOOD AND CULTURE.

THIS BEGAN WITH A 4-MONTH PHASE DEVELOPING DISHES IN INDONESIA; FOLLOWED BY A 4-MONTH PERIOD, BACK IN THE U.S., ADJUSTING RECIPES TO ACCOUNT FOR DIFFERENT LOCAL INGREDIENTS AND PALATES.

THE END RESULT IS DAYS OF LABOR AND LOVE, REFINING EACH OF KASIH’S 18 DISHES. ZACH AND HIS TEAM HAVE ALSO DEVELOPED OVER 100 OTHER DISHES YET TO HIT THE MENU. SO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW AND EXCITING THINGS TO COME.

SNAPPER CEVICHE

SNAPPER CEVICHE – A FABULOUS, FLAVORFUL AND FRESH SELECTION FROM THE RAW BAR. A FAVORITE OF ZACH’S; INSPIRED FROM BORNEO CEVICHES. HAS A BEAUTIFUL AROMATIC SAMBAL AND INCLUDES SHALLOT, LEMONGRASS LIME LEAF AND CHILI; MIXED WITH SNAPPER AND SEASONED WITH HOT AND SOUR DRESSING, TURMERIC, FISH SAUCE, LIME JUICE, AND CELERY.

A GREAT STARTER TO WAKE YOUR PALETE.

ASINAN KELAPA – INDONESIAN SLAW

ASINAN KELAPA – IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO FINISH. WONDERFUL, ADDICTIVE AND AUTHENTIC. ZACH SAYS EVERYONE LOVES THIS AND IT’S EASY TO BELIEVE. A MUST HAVE ON EACH VISIT.

SWEET AND TANGY. INGREDIENTS INCLUDE CABBAGE, PEANUTS, MANGO AND DRESSING.

ROSE CHICKEN VEGETABLE CURRY (VEGETARIAN OPTION)

SAYUR LODEH – A BEAUTIFULLY DISPLAYED VEGETABLE CURRY SOUP. IT STARTS VEGETARIAN; CHICKEN OPTIONAL IF YOU PREFER. HAS A BOILED EGG WITH SAMBAL TERASI (ROASTED TOMATO), CHILI, SHALLOT, SHRIMP BASE AND SHRIMP CRACKER.

ZACH SAYS INDONESIANS LOVE AND AMERICANS EITHER LOVE OR HATE THIS DISH. THIS IS ONE AMERICAN THAT LOVED IT!

AYAM RUJAK (Chicken & Coconut Sauce) | LADY BIRD Tequila | SUMMER SEMANGKA Vodka

AYUM RUJAK – JUICY FLAVORFUL CHICKEN W/ CHARRED SCALLIONS, SNAKE BEAN, AND TAMARIND COCONUT SAUCE. CURRY DIPPING SAUCE FROM CURRY PASTE.

EXCELLENT DISH THAT REALLY DIDN’T LAST LONG. THE CHICKEN WAS SO FLAVORFUL, EQUALLY GOOD WITH OR WITHOUT THE DIPPING SAUCE.

FULL BAR 🍸

KASIH HAS A FULL/FRIENDLY BAR WITH AN EXCELLENT SELECTION OF COCKTAILS BEER AND WINE.

KUNO “Old Fashion” | LADY BIRD | SUMMER SEMANGKA 

ZACH SAYS INDONESIAN FOOD IS DIFFICULT TO PAIR WITH DRINKS SINCE IT IS SO LAYERED, FLAVORFUL, AND SPICY. HE PREFERS A BEER OR SOMETHING SPICY LIKE THE LADYBIRD.

SOME GREAT COCKTAILS FROM THE MENU INCLUDE (Left –> Right):

    • KUNO “Old Fashion” – Banana Infused @evanwilliamsbourbon, Palm Syrup, Bitters, And Orange Oils.
    • LADY BIRD – A Heavenly Combination Of @mezcallosjavis, Tangerine Shrub, Lemon Juice, And Birds-Eye Chili. One Of Zach’s  Favorite Drinks.

Additional acts include Jonathan Richman featuring Tommy Larkins on the drums,  indie breakout songstress Hatchie, shock rock metalheads GWAR, plus rapper and beatbox pioneer Doug E. Fresh

Hip-Hop icon Bushwick Bill  from The Geto Boys’ will be making a rare on stage appearance. Stones Throw resident boogie master Prophet will also be showing off his talents.

The Voidz, led by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes

This year also marks the return of two fan favorite experiences: Beach Goth Island and Death of a Clown Cabaret.

With its sandy shantytown vibes, palm trees, and copious amounts of pale lager, Beach Goth Island is a dubbed-out reggae paradise, featuring the tropical tones of selectors Danny Holloway and Peaking Lights’ Aaron Coyes in quadraphonic sound. Here you’ll see the likes of Barrington Levy and King Yellowman take the stage.

Staged in a giant vintage circus tent, the Death of a Clown Cabaret is LA’s queer showcase of demented drag. Curated by LA queerdo scenemaker Rudy “Bleu” Garcia, the Death of a Clown tent features recurring drag shows, with DJs and live bands leading a zonked dance party throughout the day. Performances at this stage will include Kirin J Callinan, Youth of Today, and Beach Goons.
