You know you’re in America when the historic districts are around 200 years old, and you know you’re in California when you celebrate an old town built up just before the turn of the twentieth century. Perhaps that’s why we enjoy the quaint feel of Old Town Tustin, whose Main Street still inhabits the historic buildings from the town’s founding in the 1880s.

Tustin City was originally laid out by Nelson O. Stafford through

Watch out, because this blog is bound to make you hungry.

In a city of freelancers and Hollywood meetings, there are times you need a healthy gluten and dairy free choice, there are times you need a quick coffee and there are other times -- that you need the House of Pies.

An invitation to the House of Pies is not to be taken lightly. And let's be honest here, no one goes there for the dinner options. Here

Movie theaters hold such an iconic place in America’s cultural landscape that it’s hard to imagine a time without them. What began in 1894 with a short kinetoscope viewer in a New York City phonograph store, then growing with the vaudeville movement at the turn of the century, the movie palace created its own style and architectural impact on each city’s scene.

Since movies and popcorn go together like avocado and toast, we thought that National Popcorn Day would be a fun time to launch into some fast facts about movie theaters and their architecture, starting in our own Nook Neighborhoods. Even the LA Zoo gets festive for this tasty holiday!

  • In 1923 it was built as the Linda Lea Vaudeville House, also recently known as the ImaginAsian

Cannery Beach has been described as SoHo New York meets beach life meets San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. That’s a lot of personality to pack into an 8 block radius in Newport Beach. Now, the ocean plays a large role in that vibe; it is as big a part of this neighborhood’s landscape and charm as the modern loft living. When they say “Dock and Dine,” they really mean it; many lofts and restaurants have a place to hitch up

There are parades and then there are meaningful community events. There are empty celebrations and there are neighborhood collaborations that truly get to the heart of civic service. In both cases, Long Beach’s Martin Luther King Jr.’s Parade and Celebration embody the latter.

Of course, The City of Long Beach and Councilmember Dee Andrews of the Sixth District are involved, but then you have the group called What’s Next Now, whose mission is to “unite people and resources to build a stronger, healthier community”. With programs to relieve poverty, advance education and youth/child services, support to seniors and the disabled, and the advancement of health, environment and the arts, this group of citizens live King’s wishes for us all.
