If you haven’t applied yet for a small business grant through LISC as a part of the COVID-19 relief package for small businesses in Los Angeles county, you have until Friday September 4th to do so. They’re offering $5,000, $15,000 and $25,000 grants depending on the size of your small business. Yes, that means you too indie contractors and micro- entrepreneurs!
Today marks the last day of service for a Los Angeles favorite in the heart of the Miracle Mile. After a 40 year run, the small chain restaurant is closing its doors due to higher rent (damn, Los Angeles).
The closing of my favorite brunch spot saddens me as I know that their closing isn’t due to bad business, but high rent. Something many Angelinos are facing, myself included. And their isn’t another place like this, let another restaurant of the same family chain, for 20 miles or so.
So I’m here with family and many other patrons sending off the restuarant and its warm staff, wishing them better endeavors.
And enjoying a heart meal… or two. After, they served one mean buffet style brunch.
Thanks you, Callendar’s for your wonderful food (they had a pretty good), friendly staff and convenient locations
And I’m excited about it.
Now, it’s now great American novel and it doesn’t fall into a story genre, but a little somethin’-somethin’ I’ve been working on.
It’s a short body of work that combines poetry and photos summed up as a snippet of my perspective as an Los Angeles dweller. And I hope to work on more writing and book projects and the near future.
And I will have the upmost respect for anyone who is interested in purchasing my book: https://amzn.to/2zzdDBb (you should already know there is no shame in my hustlin’ game).
