Street Food Cinema has booked many great music bands including the so rad 80’s band PAST ACTION HEROES who are ready to blow your 80’s lovin’ minds while you kick back on your blankets and enjoy the sun going down. But before they roll film on the quintessential John Hughes’s classic, THE BREAKFAST CLUB, they’re crazy happy to announce that they’ll have executive producer, ANDREW MEYER, dropping his best insider stories on the making of this amazing movie of teenage angst, class distinction, and Pixy Stix  sandwiches. In addition, KIRK HONEYCUTT will be signing his new book John Hughes: A Life in Film.

Exposition Park is where it all goes down starting Saturday, May 2nd. The food truck lineup keeps getting better as they add to their list of gourmet street food options. Now you can grab “The Director Dog” from Angie’s Wieners who will be serving up some of the best hotdogs on the West Cost or you can munch down some “Carne Asada Fries” from the oh so decadent menu of Fry Fry. Then if you dare, top it off with a sweet “breakfast” from Waffles de Liege or a double scoop of decadent Fried Ice Cream from the Frach’s.

Beach Nation

June 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

Imagine a day at the beach without the hassle of getting there. Sinking your feet in the sand, the sun in your face, a breeze in the air, your favorite drink in hand, a selection of healthy snacks just steps away. Now imagine all of this just down the street in the middle of West Hollywood. A beach in the middle of the city? Welcome to Beach Nation.

Beach Nation is the new outdoor beach-style cafe on Santa Monica Boulevard, just blocks from Beverly Hills, Melrose, and the Sunset Strip. The spacious deck is an oasis in the middle of the city: waving palm trees, rustling sea grasses… a stylish beach cafe vibe created by famed designer Thomas Schoos.

Fish Canyon Falls

March 26, 2014 — Leave a comment

Fish Canyon Falls is an eighty-foot tall three-tiered beauty in the San Gabriel Mountains near Azusa. Spring is the perfect time to visit the dynamic waterfall, but access is limited because there is a rock quarry blocking the trailhead. The creation of the quarry resulted in decades of disputed access to what was once one of the most popular destinations to the range. The quarry chewed up the first mile of the trail, reducing the trek to Fish Canyon Falls to four miles round trip with 400 feet of elevation gain. Even in it’s abbreviated form, this still deserves to be one of the most highly regarded hikes in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Since the quarry operators will not allow you to just stroll through their active work zone, there are only certain days when the quarry opens the trailhead to hikers. Typically, hiking to Fish Canyon Falls is permitted two Saturdays per month throughout the spring. The calendar of these dates is available on the quarry website.

After checking in at the quarry parking lot, a shuttle will drive you to the trailhead. From there, hike straight up the canyon to the falls. The trail takes the left bank of the canyon and climbs above the creek past seasonal wildflowers like sunflowers, wishbone bush, blue dicks, and wallflowers. The trail dips back to the creek where sycamores, bays, and alders provide relaxing shade. Boulders in the creek create small rapids and pools that make the creek that much more soothing.

The trail climbs gradually up the canyon through sun and shade. After a creek crossing, the trail switches to the right bank and approaches Fish Canyon Falls. It is quite a sight! Water tumbles from the lip of the canyon to an upper pool, then pours down a short falls before streaming down the third and longest tier. There is a decent sized pool at the base of the falls and plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy a snack. The pool beneath the upper falls is not accessible to hikers, but could make for an adventurous climb for those with proper gear.
