Favorite hole-in-the-walls: Eater L.A. asked several of L.A.'s best chefs what their favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurants are:

Some of LA's tastiest bites hail from random tiny, divey, ethnic abodes scattered all around (and outside of) town from Little Saigon to San Gabriel to Artesia to East L.A.

El Salvador Community Corridor: LAist reports that an El Salvador Community Corridor is on its way to becoming official (freeway signs and all):

Assemblymember Mike Davis has been working with community members to create the El Salvador Community Corridor along Vermont Avenue. If his legislation passes, signs along the 10 Freeway will let drivers know where to exit to find the culturally rich artery.

Santa Monica bridge replacement: The Santa Monica Daily Press reports that the bridge to the Santa Monica Pier will be replaced:

Estimated at a total cost of $8 million, Santa Monica officials said they believe the bridge replacement project will receive $7 million through federal grants, leaving the City Hall responsible for the remaining $1 million.

Nisei Week Festival: Blogdowntown reports on the Nisei Week Festival happening in Little Tokyo:

While the parade is a mix of Japanese tradition and pop-culture, it's the Japanese-American war veterans that lead the procession. They are placed before the civic dignitaries and visiting courts of queens and princesses from other Japanese-American festivals around Southern California.
