For this slow week before the Labor Day Holiday we present you with a handful of questions that your fellow readers would like answers to. If you care to answer you are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post in the comments.
1) Silver Lake: We know exactly what this reader is talking about, and we'd love a good answer. "Over the weekend, me and my old lady and kid were driving through our neighborhood in Silver Lake, on our way to a pre-school potluck. As we passed by the corner of Glendale and Fletcher (right across the street from Astro Restaraunt) we noticed a sign saying that the 5 or 6 brand new trendy-looking modern houses that have been sitting on the hillside empty for over a year now are currently for lease. Interesting. What's the story here? Why haven't they sold?" UPDATE: We posted on this previously, we were just informed. The homes are being leased. Guess they just couldn't sell. Tough times.
2) Echo Park: In a previous R&B, we mentioned Prana Investments had bought the Jensen Rec Center in EP. "Went to the Fuck Yeah Fest in Echo Park this weekend, was my first encounter with the half-finished venue on the ground floor of Jensen's Rec Center. Anyone know what the deal with that is? The unisex bathroom nook with private stalls, the sofa-lined chill pit, the lofted DJ platform - can't wait for rave to come back."
3) Los Angeles: One of the film locales for Entourage is around the corner from us, but it's a different house. "I was wondering if you guys knew anything about that house they're shooting in Entourage. It's a modern house (at least the interior), with a nice infinity pool, and killer view. I know it's probably not a celebrity house, but maybe you guys could give me some insight."
