To be ..or not to be…that is the question? For “Los Felizians” its a no-brainer! The Independent Shakespeare Company (ISC) brings the passion of the classics to the park for free. Since 2010, when the company moved their festival to Griffith Park’s Old Zoo, ISC has focused on diversity in theater trying to reach out to multi-generations and backgrounds. Tonight’s performance is “She Stoop’s to Conquer” by Oliver Goldsmith. You can check the schedule for other performances, such as Macbeth and As You Like It. They even offer pre-show performances by Los Angeles Artists on certain days so check the calendar and get there early to experience the entire event in its full capacity.

With all the Holiday festivities, visiting in-laws, maxed out credit cards, yummy dinners and all the office parties, its no surprise the alcohol intake escalates during this Season. The LAPD is serious about not driving under the influence and has set up sobriety checkpoints through out the Los Angeles area, on Friday and Saturday nights.

If you are like most Angelinos, you spend a great deal of time in your car driving around and have noticed the new traffic light at the corner of Finley and Hillhurst Ave., that was just installed in June. The Los Feliz community needed a traffic light at that location and had been asking for one as a result of many speeding motorists and traffic accidents. The Los Feliz residents and community members gathered to “turn on the light” on June 22, 2010. Among the witnesses was Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who stated to have made funding possible for this light by the CRA, “I’m thankful to the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation for funding and installing this necessary light,” Councilmember LaBonge said. “This will make this intersection much safer for drivers and pedestrians in Los Feliz.”
In addition to all this, an official Blessing of the Light and Crosswalk ceremony was held by Father Christopher Kelley of St.Mary of the Angels Anglican Church, which is located at the intersection. Mya Rose Pecchia, a 5 year old girl, had the honor of flipping the switch on to the new traffic signal at 1 PM.

A mid-show reception is being held at Happy in Los Feliz on Friday, July, 2 from 6 to 10 pm. What a great way to start your independence day celebration…by viewing the wonderful work of Karen Frimkess Wolff and Carlos Ulloa along with a cup of coffee and sweet treats from FIX COFFEE of Echo Park. If you’re planning on pulling an “out-of-towner” and can’t make the reception, the exhibit will be available for viewing until July 31, 2010. The response to has been overwhelming, so we really recommend putting a stop on your summer calendar.
