Livin’ La Pizza Loca no more

When we first moved to Echo Park, the only restaurant that would deliver to our sketchy apartment complex was La Pizza Loca. We were a little loca to eat the barely digestible pizza, but was at one point the cheapest meal in town.

This weekend the Glendale Boulevard pizzeria at Berkeley Avenue closed its doors for good – the sign is gone, and some window graphics remain, but a call to the old number and you’ll be redirected to another location.

It’s not the first place to close down in the strip mall – there was once a Cash Express storefront, a flower/bike/tobacco kiosk, and a Dog Grooming business. It might be a sign that the storefronts are being squeezed out as the strip mall prepares for a 7-11 to open up, which was approved last October by the neighborhood council and is undergoing review by the city for a beer and wine license.

The 7-11 plans include making improvements to the whole strip mall (cleaning up the parking lot, removing the old, ugly wall, improving signage), and thus the strip mall owner may be able to ask for higher rent. We’ll see if the Tacos Mexico and the other remaining tenants can stick it out, or if we’re looking at a high-end makeover on Glendale Boulevard and Berkeley.

    Thanks for your handy post. Over time, I have come to be able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the actual build up associated fluid between the lining of your lung and the chest muscles cavity. The ailment may start inside chest region and pass on to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight-loss, severe inhaling and exhaling trouble, temperature, difficulty swallowing, and bloating of the face and neck areas. It really should be noted that some people with the disease will not experience just about any serious indications at all.

    Gracias por las grandes ideas, Chris. Me gusta mucho la idea de las turbinas de viento. Siento que el tablero de publicidad podría arruinar el hermoso paisaje. Estoy en Londres y hay una granja cerca de mi casa donde hay muchos caballos hermosos. En un rincón, han abierto una guardería para niños. ¡Los niños pueden ir a la guardería y pueden tener una vista de los caballos también!
