Silver Lake condo battle: The Eastsider LA is reporting on a battle between a developer and environmentalists:

The developers have refused to set aside land for a walking and wildlife trail as called for in a community plan that guides development in the area, [Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy planning chief Paul] Edelman said. The conservancy would also like the trail extend north of the undeveloped Menlo Property behind the large apartment complexes that line Riverside Drive.

Bacon and chocolate funnel cake: The Orange County Register reports that Knott's Berry Farm has brought back its bacon and chocolate funnel cake:

The souped-up funnel cakes started out as an online joke from Jeff Tucker, one of the park's entertainment chiefs… The treats were popular enough during the Bash that Knott's kitchens brought them back for another weekend. Now, they will be available for the masses to enjoy.
