Council OKs Streetcar Operating Plan, 3/7/13 – Los Angeles Downtown News
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – The City Council this week approved a 30-year operational plan for the proposed Downtown streetcar, identifying and committing up to $294 million that would fund maintenance and operations of the project.
The dollars would not come from the city’s general fund, but rather from the city’s portion of the county Measure R sales tax, according to 14th District Councilman José Huizar’s office. The operational plan would kick in only after the streetcar gets built. A special tax approved by Downtown voters in December will pay for about half of the estimated $125 million cost to get the system up and running. Read more!

This dark horse classic strikes your palate like a velvet sledge hammer with it’s robust, yet soft and unusual ingredient line up. According to the ‘Old Waldorf-Astoria bar book’, this cocktail was invented there to celebrate James R. Keene, whose stable was legendary in the Suburban Handicap in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay track in 1884.
Not only is this Noir destroyer a historical mating for Seven Grands rich wood texture and dark billeted leather, it drinks like our rich decor feels.
Bartenders note: Try creating an interesting variation by substituting sherry for the port.

Hollywood U2 is the real thing. Close your eyes and you will think you are listening to the real U2. They are the official tribute band actually endorsed by Bono himself. They are back again this year to take the stage and put a little Irish flavor in your step. They are a must see for any U2 fan! http://213nightlife.com/st-patricks-day
