Megan Hanson – Executive Director of RootDown LA
RootDown LA’s mission is to convince high school kids to eat their veggies and to engage them in educational experiences that empower these kids to build healthier food communities as they cook, grow, and sit down to eat healthy food with their friends, families and neighbors.

Entertainment has just been added to this event, you are in for a special treat.

Announcing our special guest entertainer for the evening of July 19th!
I had the pleasure of discovering the music of Eric Kufs a few years ago while he was playing along the streets of Santa Monica. This Los Angeles based singer/songwriter is one part crooner, one part protest singer and every part artist. Belonging to the generation of independent recording musicians using today’s newest home recording techniques, Eric’s time performing in Southern California began seven years ago in local clubs and venues. With the lyrical poignancy of a Will Oldham, the dynamic voice of a Van Morrison, and the passion of a Bruce Springsteen, his prowess eventually led to performances around the world.

Armed with his guitar and voice, Kufs continues to reach out to his audience through his work whether on a street corner or beneath the stage lights.

He’ll be joining us for one exclusive night at our Muir Ranch “Sociable Supper” to support our summer internships program – Get tickets now: www.muirranchsupper.evenbrite.com – you won’t want to miss this Saturday night with our special guest artist Eric Kufs! www.erickufs.com

Nowadays farms are so removed from the everyday experience of city dwellers, that the average North American city dweller has no idea where his/her food comes from. That it grows in the dirt and doesn‘t come from a super market. But things are changing and lot of people want to take matters in their own hands again.

With next week’s DTLA Night Market in the heart of the City of Angels, situated across the street from the world-famous Staples Center in Downtown L.A., 626 Night Market highly encourages all DTLA Night Market attendees to plan ahead, especially if you are getting there during rush hour on Friday.

Cross Campus Expands to Pasadena @crosscampusLA
 

Opening on the East Side…

We’re in the process of launching a new campus in Old Town Pasadena — slated to open this Fall.

The last few months have been exciting for Cross Campus.

Cross Campus Old Pasadena

We moved to a bigger space and grew the team. We’ve been experimenting with and refining our product: the Cross Campus experience. We launched our parking service.  This week, together with DigitalLA, we will host Silicon Beach Fest for the third year running.

Today we announce our expansion into Old Pasadena.
We’re pumped.

(Want to Stay in the Loop? Click here to Join the Pasadena Mailing List.)

This is a natural expansion for us. We have members who commute from Pasadena; we’ve hosted events there; and partners like the City of Pasadena, Innovate Pasadena, Idealab, and the Pasadena Angels will help us catalyze the growth in the entrepreneurial community.

Cross Campus Old Pasadena will be located at 87 N. Raymond Ave, Pasadena.

Today’s announcement comes almost a year after we first began building a relationship with Rising Realty Partners. In Rising, we have a developer who gets technology and shares our vision of the future of work.

Pasadena is an exciting market for many reasons that we will be talking about in the coming months. We’re going to be bringing many Cross Campus Santa Monica elements to Cross Campus Old Pasadena, and we’re working on some new ones specific to that market. We will continue to define the future of work.

LOS ANGELES, June 1, 2014— Mark your calendars and get out your stretchy pants! LA‘s largest and most affordable tasting event produced by Angelenos for Angelenos returns to the Rose Bowl to celebrate its fifth consecutive year on Saturday, June 28th 2014. Imitated by many but equaled by none, the LASFF’s 5th Annual Summer Tasting Event raises the bar again with new evening hours (4p-10p), a new layout to both take advantage of the Rose Bowl’s recent renovations and to accommodate even more vendors and sponsors, introducing guests to dozens of legendary street food chefs from all parts of Los Angeles and beyond.
