    “Since the hepatitis scare at Jerry’s Famous Deli in Westwood last month, specifically on Nov. 18, 21, 23 and 24, many of us have been weary of our restaurant choices. And some of us are getting hepatitis A vaccinations or immune globulin shots. If you were exposed, “shots must be received within 14 days of exposure in order to reduce or prevent illness,” according to an L.A. County Public Health Department press release.

    Sure, we can’t predict the future, but the health department luckily gives us a heads up on all food spots (including health food stores, all-natural bakeries, and gourmet eateries) that have been shut down for “imminent health hazards to public health or safety” and other beauts of the sort. Turn the page for a list of November closures and a few reopenings.” Per Soudry 12/6/2010 … read more http://tinyurl.com/28eo8ro

    After 20 years on the Third Street Promenade, the Broadway Deli on Monday served customers for the last time, one day before the restaurant’s deadline to clear out so its landlord can prepare the space for higher-paying tenants.

    City Hall goes light on some code violations


    November 29, 2010
    CITY HALL — Bicyclists who break Santa Monica law by riding on the sidewalk caught a break of their own last week, as the City Council agreed to reduce the penalty for that offense, and several others, from a misdemeanor to an infraction.

    The change came in response to a complaint City Hall received from a cyclist who had been given a misdemeanor citation for sidewalk riding and felt the “inconvenience of going to court was disproportionate to the violation,” according to an official report.

    The council last Tuesday concurred, and also agreed to lessen the punishment for loitering in parking structures, leaving property or items unattended for longer than 10 minutes on certain public properties and disturbing the peace in public parks.

    Under the ordinance change, police officers would still have the option to write misdemeanor citations for the violations but would also be empowered to issue infraction tickets.

    City Hall said the move will save money by reducing the amount of time spent prosecuting misdemeanor offenses and will increase the city’s income from fine collection, though no estimate of how much the city stands to gain was provided.

    The change, which received preliminary approval last Tuesday and must again come before the council before it can take effect, is also aimed at making life easier for transgressors.

    “Treating these violations as infractions will allow the person charged with the offense to resolve the matter in the same way as a traffic violation, by simply paying a fine,” a City Hall report stated.

    While the change means more lenient penalties, it could also mean the likelihood of getting one has increased.

    The ordinance change also expanded the list of city personnel who are authorized to issue citations to include employees of the Office of Sustainability and the Environment, license inspectors and animal service officers.

  • Santa Monica's Smoking Ban Goes Even Further Yesterday!

    Posted Under: Parks & Recreation in Santa Monica, Going Green in Santa Monica, In My Neighborhood in Santa Monica  |  September 10, 2010 11:23 AM  |  2,035 views  |  No comments

    As of today the smoking ban in Santa Monica extends beyond prohibiting smoking at beaches, piers, outdoor dining areas, and parks; to even patios.

    It is now illegal to smoke outdoors within 25-feet of any apartment building door, window or vent.

    This extended law of the smoking ban in Santa Monica was created in hopes of preventing smokes from lighting up on patios and balconies in multi-unit residential properties, mainly

    apartments and condo complexes.

    This Smoking Ban has gone into effect very quickly!


    Good luck to all of those smokers out there, if you were planning on quitting smoking as your upcoming new year’s resolution, I guess you can get a head start on it, at least if you live or work in the city of Santa Monica.

    The Architect's Newspaper calls the new outdoor mall "less jazzy and more natural, less claustrophobic and more connected" than the old/original indoor mall.

    The dining deck looks very similar to Century City's Outdoor Mall.

    This is something Santa Monica absolutely needed to bring itself back up to date.
