Looking for dim sum in Chinatown? Here's a map to guide you

Dim sum Google map LAist blogger Elise Thompson has created a map of several popular dim sum eateries in Chinatown.

Thompson discusses what's good about each place, offers options for parking or other transportation and asks readers to comment on (or add to) the map:

"One of the best ways to enjoy dim sum is on the move. It is ideal street food. Walking around shopping for paper lanterns, Snap Pops and Chinese herbs as you wander from one dim sum deli to the next makes for a perfect late morning or early afternoon."

Artist explains Koreatown statue: Curbed LA has posted a great e-mail from artist Bobbie Carlyle explaining the purpose of a bronze statue on Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown:

"It is not known who was the original sculptor, and we have only a few dark postcards and snapshots showing a female nude with billowing cape standing atop a wave... I was commissioned by LAUSD to recreate the sculpture."

Grand Prix preparations: The Long Beach Press-Telegram has a photo and video gallery of preparations for the Grand Prix.
