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!

Mix This: The Suburban with Seven Grand’s Dustin Newsome!

March 7th, 2013 — 11:07am

The Suburban
- 1 1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey
- 1/2 oz. Port
- 1/2 oz. Dark Rum
- 1 dash Angostura
- 1 dash orange bitters

Build in old fashioned glass with ice, garnish with orange peel.

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.
