Atwater Chatter

Here's what people are saying lately about the goings-on in Atwater Village (Baja Glendale, Far East Hollywood, Upper Frogtown, etc.) and environs:

  • No fewer than five Very Important Bloggers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) are bummed that Habibi's Cafe is mere Hollywood fakery. Any Middle-Eastern restaurateurs out there? Could be Famima!! big. Among VIBs, anyway
  • Teens heart AV library's manga influx
  • Ouch: Seven-hour tattoo
  • Award-winning, "420 friendly" writer ends three-year hotel stay, seeks change of scenery
  • Indochine part of perfect day in LA
  • Latest float in Prose Parade: "I drove Oree from the soot-scuffed 'hood to gentrified Atwater Village, where two-bedroom bungalows baked in the heat like turtles beside the LA River"
  • Stuck in AV on a hot day
