Busted! at 4th and Main

Around 9:45 this evening Pam looked out one of my windows and shouted, "What's that!?!"

LAPD pulled over a reportedly stolen car and eventually carted away two suspects. More photos here

Lime's Grand Re-Opening

After a brief period in which it was open with a menu that attempted to have the same price for burritos, tacos, and tostadas, Lime Cafe shut its doors to revamp its offerings. The restaurant re-opened in the middle of July with a greater variety of choices and prices. To celebrate, there was a grand re-opening ceremony on July 31:
