In a project eerily reminiscent of our own Gates, some local artist created a patch of Los Angeles industrial wasteland (just North of Chinatown and South of Lincoln Heights) into a "living sculpture in the form of a field of corn" (above). Alas, Friday marked the end of the Not a Cornfield project.
More foreign affairs from our sister sites in Los Angeles and San Francisco...
1) Los Angeles: BataliWatch '06, L.A. style, continues with the news that Mario's new joint, Mozza, a partnership with NYC partner Joe Bastianich and Nancy Silverton, is on sked to open in June.
2) San Francisco: In the Bay area, they had some bubble inflation followed by PriceChopping, though they also appear to have something called "view streets," which have right sides and wrong sides.
3) Los Angeles: A stadium controversy! Pasadena's out of the running for the new L.A. football digs. That leaves Anaheim and a renovated Coliseum. Meanwhile, estimated costs have ballooned from $500 million to $800 million.
