Knightsbridge Theatre's talented cadre of thespians presents a schedule of lovingly crafted stagings of classic theatrical texts in an intimate, newly restored theater. Five- and 10-seat subscriptions allow patrons to use their seats any way they like, bringing along a mass of friends for one show or sitting on a friend’s shoulders and plopping down into a single seat, or gifting tickets to a friend, family member, or favorite landscaper. Upcoming shows include Steel Magnolias, the original musical comedy Bergeracky, Rostand's comical French romance Cyrano De Bergerac and the medieval tale of intrigue The Lion in Winter. Shows take place in a renovated 1920s silent-movie house that contains just 99 seats, creating an intimate atmosphere that allows actors to connect to the audience without the use of duct tape.

The story of the Los Angeles Dodgers begins in 1884 in Brooklyn, New York, where the team tried out such names as the Bridegrooms, the Superbas, and the Robins before finally settling on the Dodgers in 1932. A scant 15 years later, the club played a vital role in the American civil-rights movement, as Jackie Robinson became the first African American to don a Major League uniform. When Robinson retired after the 1956 season, players such as Don Drysdale and Duke Snider picked up the torch and, along with owner Walter O'Malley, led the team on a cross-country move to Los Angeles in 1958. The club settled into its new home four years later, erecting the stadium in which it's since won four World Series titles. Unlike most modern fields, which use giant green screens to appear surrounded by city skylines, Dodger Stadium sits in the shadow of the real San Gabriel Mountains, and the 56,000-seat ballpark was selected by MLB players as the best stadium in baseball in a 2003 Sports Illustrated poll.

When runners cross the finish line at The Color Fight, they won't see a big digital clock keeping track of the time. For one thing, the race organizers don't track race times, and even if they did, the ticking numbers would be cloaked by a cloud of colorful powder. That's because at each kilometer of the 3-mile race, spectators and race personnel launch handfuls of dyed powder at the runners, creating a vivid spectrum that symbolizes the event's emphasis of fun over victory. In order to make the perfect canvas for the rainbow of colors, runners are encouraged to wear white clothing or wrap themselves in a rain cloud.

Ballard’s Artwork Framing, located in Echo Park, offers street parking in front and in a nearby parking lot south of Sunset, which helps immensely in this traffic-plagued part of town. Inside, the flow is much more slowed down; framing photography or art amplifies what the piece is conveying through presentation, and Ballard’s respects that process and prides themselves on developing that understanding, as well as creating long term relationships with their clients. To ensure quality, they only use archival mats and foam board, and UV protected glass. Their main supplier, Raven & Lily, has made sustainability a promise since 1991. Ballard’s is widely considered to be one of Los Angeles best frame shops, for their service, quality and range of standard and themed frames.
