CicLAvia Sunday, April 6, 2014 @ciclavia

The next CicLAvia will be held on Sunday, April 6, from 9am-4pm!

We’re thrilled to return to the Iconic Wilshire Boulevard route and can’t wait to co-host the national Open Streets Summit in Los Angeles that same weekend. We’re also pleased to announce that our October 5 CicLAvia will be a return to the Heart of LA with a new downtown route and our December 7 event will go to South LA with a new route.

If you’ve taken part in CicLAvia before, you have an idea of what to expect — a sea of smiling faces discovering a different side of Los Angeles by foot, bike, or skates. People connecting with businesses, alternative transportation and with each other along the car-free route in a car-free environment.

Events that transform the shared spaces of our city are rare and unique. If you have friends that haven’t yet experienced the magic and wonder of CicLAvia, take a moment to invite them to attend CicLAvia – Iconic Wilshire Boulevard on April 6. From the activity-filled pedestrian zone along Museum Row to the stunning architectural history of Wilshire Boulevard, there is something for everyone.

Tweet and post to Facebook or forward this email to your friends

P.S. More details on the 2014 CicLAvia routes and our vision for countywide expansion can be found here:

    Apple iPhone Air Pictures #iphone6

    Apple iPhone Air

    We should expect to see new format screens possibly one at 4.7″ and one larger at 5.7″.

    Concept images have emerged that show Apple's next-generation handset with a super-thin slender chassis. This concept, by Italian-based firm SET Solution, predicts the handset could be 1.5mm at the top and 3mm at the bottom, in order to retain the home button

    This new thin phone could revolutionize the thickness of phones.

    The iPhone 6 or the what some are calling the iPhone Air, is the 9th version of the iPhone.

    Expected to be announced sometime in 2014, possible at the WWDC in June 2014.

    Best Breakfast Options Pasadena #breakfast #pasadena #food

    If you are like me you are always looking for a place to eat breakfast and a good place nonetheless.

    Here’s a short list of some of the best options for breakfast in the Pasdaena area. Not in any order, will start to rank these based on feedback.

    Yahari’s – df – near Vroman’s, in the same mall as El Portal. Favorite spot for breakfast, friendly staff, consistently quality.

    Green Street –

    Central Park –

    Novel Cafe Pasadena – df –

    Russell’s – Old Pasadena
    Visited 10am on Sunday, Jan 12, 2014, the food is very good, the decor is also well appointed.
    Wait here can be upwards of 1 hours on Sundays. If you do come on Sunday be sure to visit the Farmer’s Market every Sunday, you could end up having enough samples to kill your appetite. Fairly small location, but open kitchen. Hashbrowns are excellent.
    Water Rank: 7
    Coffee Rank: 8

    Eurpopane – two locations

    Bar Celona/Sorriso –  brunch – df

    La Grande Orange – df on patio

    Cafe Verde

    Urth Cafe –

    Mi Piace -df

    Du-Par’s – new just opened about a week ago, in the space previously occupied by Hamburger Hamlet.

    Andy’s Coffee Shop – locals hangout.

    Marston’s – small house on Walnut near Raymond. Packed on on weekends.

    Guss BBQ – South Pas – patio df
    Mike & Anne’s – SPAS patio df

    One thing that review sites should do is grade or allow users to rank, water and coffee.  Especially breakfast places. nothing worse than having chlorinated water in the morning.

    Specialities of Delhi

    Specialities of Delhi

     If you are a foodie, then Indian regional variation is bound to fill up your taste buds. You would be amazed to find how preparation varies from one state to another and how usage of spices and masala gives a fresh aroma to every dish. The use of local spices, herbs, vegetables and meat would take to a appetizing journey. Let’s talk about the cuisines of the capital of India, Delhi.  Some of the most popular ingredients used in this region are cinnamon, ginger, cumin, tamarind and garam masala. The people of Delhi also love cooking with tomatoes, potatoes, ghee, butter and nuts. Their food is largely influenced by the Mughal rule of the 16th century. Mughalis were partial to rich, royal cuisine, and this explains why the cuisine today is as still bold and elaborate; these qualities were shared and adapted by Punjabi cooks.

    One of the boldest and the richest dish which has become synonymous with Delhi is Butter Chicken, also known as Murgh Makhani. Butter Chicken retains many Mughali trademarks: lots of spices, roasted meats, and thick gravy of cream, butter and tomato. Later in the process, the butter (fresh white butter made from thick cream that rises to the surface of buffalo milk) is combined with the tomato-based gravy, giving it a glistening and silky-smooth texture.

    Dahi Bhalla is also very popular in Delhi, and is eaten by many on scorching hot days. It is essentially a cooling chaat, and is also thought to sooth an upset stomach. The dish consists of dahi (creamy yoghurt) and bhalla – bready fried lentil fritters. The bhalla are covered in yoghurt, and then finished with yellow raisins, pink pomegranate seeds and sweet tamarind chutney, resulting to a sweet and tangy blend of flavours; perfect for a snack on-the-move.

    If you are in Delhi, you cannot miss its delectable kebabs. There are hundreds of varieties of kebabs that can be found on street stalls in Delhi, as well as being made in restaurants and homes. Vegetarians can find paneer or potato kebabs, but the most common versions are chicken tikka or skewered spiced minced mutton (known as mutton seekh). These are usually marinated for a long time, then grilled over a low charcoal flame, before being wrapped into a roti (they then become “kebab rolls”). Whether consumed as a starter, a late-night snack, lunch or dinner – people of Delhi will eat a kebab at any time of the day.

    If you can’t get over to Delhi to try these specialities first-hand, do not repent. You can simply make your way to one of London’s best-known fine dining Indian restaurants, Amaya. This is situated in the heart of Belgravia; they offer contemporary Indian cuisine, inspired by all the regions. Amaya has specialised in grilling and cooking to order, their kebabs are the best in town – whether they are spears of succulent smoky clove-infused lamb or fresh and seasonal fish, diners will experience food that goes above and beyond their expectations.

    Important message from Target to our guests
    Dear Target Guest,
    As you may have heard or read, Target learned in mid-December that criminals forced their way into our systems and took guest information, including debit and credit card data. Late last week, as part of our ongoing investigation, we learned that additional information, including name, mailing address, phone number or email address, was also taken. I am writing to make you aware that your name, mailing address, phone number or email address may have been taken during the intrusion.
    I am truly sorry this incident occurred and sincerely regret any inconvenience it may cause you. Because we value you as a guest and your trust is important to us, Target is offering one year of free credit monitoring to all Target guests who shopped in U.S. stores, through Experian’s® ProtectMyID® product which includes identity theft insurance where available. To receive your unique activation code for this service, please go to and register before April 23, 2014. Activation codes must be redeemed by April 30, 2014.
    In addition, to guard against possible scams, always be cautious about sharing personal information, such as Social Security numbers, passwords, user IDs and financial account information. Here are some tips that will help protect you:

    • Never share information with anyone over the phone, email or text, even if they claim to be someone you know or do business with. Instead, ask for a call-back number.
    • Delete texts immediately from numbers or names you don’t recognize.
    • Be wary of emails that ask for money or send you to suspicious websites. Don’t click links within emails you don’t recognize.
    Target’s email communication regarding this incident will never ask you to provide personal or sensitive information.
