So sign up today!
For this first issue we'll take a look back at some of the highlights from 2011.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FOX IS BLACK
Guest blogger Bobby Solomon, aka The Fox Is Black, put together a slideshow of show floor highlights, including wares from Molo, David Trubridge, Zoe Garred, and Daniel Ogassian.
Essentially the West Coast equivalent of ICFF in New York, but with less hype and austerity, Dwell On Design is an exciting time for Los Angeles. It unites designers, creatives, larger corporations, as well as the average person on their quest to beautify their home.

The new Dinosaur Hall is open!
Yesterday I was invited for a luncheon and private tour of the new Dinosaur Hall. I am so impressed with the interactive designs incorporated to engage children visitors, to learn and understand this magnificant display. Mr T.rex-"Thomas" is also quite impressive and all the galleries are beautifully executed. The staff are wonderful and very passionate about The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Currently under construction are amazing out door Gardens and Nature Lab and in 2013 will be the 100th Anniversary Celebration. I highly suggest taking the time to view the new Dinosaur Hall and other exhibits. Truly a must see and introduce yourself to THOMAS THE T.REX!
Copy and paste for a preview of Thomas on YouTube channel:
The information below is from the website: http://www.nhm.org/site/explore-exhibits/permanent-exhibits/dinosaur-hall
The new Dinosaur Hall opened July 2011. Watch the early preview for the hall and our other dino videos.
The all-new, 14,000-square-foot Dinosaur Hall is twice the size of the Museum’s old dinosaur galleries. It will rival the world’s leading dinosaur halls for the number of individual fossils displayed, the size and spectacular character of the major mounts, including the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and the way that paleontology comes alive! In these spacious, light-filled galleries, visitors will encounter science not as static information but as a vibrant, ongoing investigation into mysteries — some resolved and some still being explored.
The stunning centerpiece of this gallery is the Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, featuring a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T. rex. It's the only series of its kind in the world.
Baby: About 2 years old when it died, this 11-foot long specimen is the youngest known T. rex fossil in world.
Juvenile: At the young age of 13, this T. rex already measured more than 20 feet long and weighed about 4,000 pounds. A rare specimen, this fossil provides a crucial link in understanding the rapid growth of the T. rex.
Thomas the T. rex: This never-before-seen fossil was excavated by NHM paleontologists in southeastern Montana from 2003-2005. It is estimated to be a 70% complete specimen, one of ten most complete T. rex specimens on Earth. At 17 years old, 34 feet long and nearly 7,000 pounds, this giant completes a series showing dramatic changes and rapid growth of T. rex. Mid-spurt, it’s estimated that a T. rex could gain 1,500 pounds in a year.

On the outskirts of Thai Town in East Hollywood located between cartoon-like murals of old film stars on the exterior walls of a Days Inn (Audrey Hepburn looks more like Minney Mouse) and a bustling resale shop called Out of The Closet stands a little flapjack diner that could be straight out of the movie Thelma and Louise - except the servers and clientele aren't character actors acting quirky, they are authentic characters whose "motivation" is served right there on the counter.
Angel’z Diner is the quintessential greasy spoon that’s been around for over 50 years (Angel Zurita bought it over 20 years ago but has worked there since the 60’s). Angel is a tall man with a full head of silver grey hair always adorned in a clean white apron and a well used kitchen rag. You’ll probably notice he doesn't say much but when he flashes that warm smile of his you’ll see that he still loves what he has been so busily doing over that griddle all of these years. Watching him hard at work is a feast for the eyes as he scrambles up eggs (with lots of butter) and flips a few burgers, passionate about serving his handful of regulars and the sprinkling of tourists staying next door.
The patrons at Angel’z are great for people watching. But it doesn’t end there. Watching passersby through a long row of windows accompanying the eight or so red vinyl booths facing Hollywood Boulevard is always entertaining. Bellying up to the counter also has its advantages; a close-up view of a chef’s commitment to his profession with a pinch of chatter with his loyal staff and customers works just fine too.
Angel’z is a once a month destination (minimum) for my circle of friends that live in and around the neighborhood. Which means the food is good. The breakfast menu offers a variety of omelets and the usual egg/bacon/sausage combos with hashed browned potatoes and toast. Whatever way you like your eggs, Angel will cook ‘em up to order. My favorite is the Chili Cheese omelet with gooey cheese smothered on the inside and out. It’s just plain delicious.
The lunch menu (served all day as well) includes soups and salads to start, or as a meal, as well as a good selection of burgers, sandwiches and dinner plates including old school favorites like Chicken Fried Steak, Grilled Liver with Onions, Pork Chops and T-Bone Steaks. I’m of the Patty Melt persuasion and it truly melts in my mouth at first bite. And the fries never fail. They are always perfectly crisp and tasty. I even ventured out a bit from the norm the other day and tried the Beef French Dip. Once again, I was not disappointed.
If you’re looking for a hole-in-the-wall with splash of truck stop beauty and a little attitude, Angel’z Diner is your place. If you’re on a diet, drive to another part of town (unless it’s your splurge day). When I mentioned “ lots of butter” earlier, I wasn’t kidding. Angel doesn’t mess around.
5420 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90027
Monday - Thursday 5:30am - 5:30pm
Friday - Sunday 5:30am - 2:30pm
