If you live or work in the Arts District and/or have been following the news in the media, you’ve heard a few stories making the rounds: (1) our BID has been dissolved; (2) we’re one of the new “hottest” neighborhoods in Los Angeles; and, (3) unbeknownst to most of us, there evidently has been a curator behind the scenes who has been masterminding our community.
Okay, we can’t change all of the above, but we can change how we react to it – let’s get to know our neighbors! If you know me, you know I’m a fan of the POSITIVE. Join me for R.A.D.D. (Residents of the Arts District and Downtown), an informal gathering of residents designed to communicate and share what’s really happening here and what’s most of interest to those of us who actually LIVE in the Arts District. Let’s hang out and get to know each other in “real time.” Keep an eye out for our bike rides, weekly walks, and after-work socials, too.
Interested in meeting local residents? Walk or bicycle around the Arts District this Wednesday, May 22. I’m hosting an evening bike ride of the neighborhood at 7:00 PM (starting and ending at Eat.Drink.Americano – wear a helmet and mount lights on your bike) – I’d like to do this weekly. Don’t have a bike? Please join Scot Ezzell on this week’s Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk, which starts and ends at Traction & Hewitt. He and his regular group of walkers are invited to join us afterwards at Eat.Drink.Americano around 8:00 PM.
