Ice Cream Tasting at Stories

It might be a little cool and cloudy in Echo Park today, but let’s pretend it’s summer and grab your complimentary ice cream samples from Bittersweet treats at Stories Cafe. The store will be serving up flavors like honey lavender and salted caramel, and will be including these flavors in a 5 oz. size on its menu. Stories is located at 1716 Sunset Blvd.


Mooi did indeed open up this week, tonight might be a good night to check it out (Thursdays are the new Fridays). They are open until 3:00 pm today for lunch, and 6:00 – 11:00 pm for dinner. QuarryGirl has a rave review of the raw vegan restaurant, so it might be worth check it out.

Take a Hike

We’ve been doing a lot of research recently about the Red Car routes through Echo Park and Silver Lake, and a recent article on the Corralitas Red Car Property website about the Red Car Trail has got us hankering for a hike. Warm up on Corralitas staircase (with its 133 steep steps) or just start out at the end of Corralitas drive and walk right on up the trail. The mile-long corridor will take you all the way to the corner of Fletcher and Riverside.
