CurbedWire: Huell Howser Goes Downtown

HOLLYWOOD - The bastard children of Pinkberry continue to spread like a fungus throughout LA. One reader writes in to let us know of yet another yogurt shop forthcoming: "Since you're addicted to Dingleberry and it's spawn I thought you would need to know that there is yet one more - we will soon have Yogotango ( hey, maybe I fucked up and it's not yogurt after all but a dance/fitness studio) on the corner of Highland and Fountain next to the Autozone."

DOWNTOWN - A reader helpfully informs us that public television fixture/Simpsons fodder Huell is taking a tour of the restored Eastern Columbia building tonight on KCET. The show airs at 7:30 and repeats a couple of times over the next few days. [CurbedWire Inbox/KCET]

LOS ANGELES - The LA Times offers us a profile of Planning Director Gail Goldberg, a tale of a scrappy upstart willing to take on City Hall. Suburban mom overcomes tragedy to become top planner in San Diego! Gail likes to walk to the Arclight for matinees! Gail requires a neighborhood to meet three criteria: "She could walk to a coffeehouse, a bookstore and a movie theater." Gail is circumspect about playing politics! Ok, we'll give her props for hiring LA's first historic-preservation manager. Long overdue. Long...Overdue...[LA Times]
