The latest store info and sidewalk scenes from street-obsessed Racked LA, the newest member of the Curbed family.
LOS ANGELES: Not a lot of progress at the 8000 Sunset plaza. "Trader Joe's space is in the same state of undone-ness. The only difference seems to be signage over the storefront windows where Pinkberry will eventually set up shop. Still no word on anything coming into the old Virgin Megastore space." Someone get this puppy finished up.
WEST HOLLYWOOD: Riot boutique on Melrose Avenue was hit over the weekend. Not only did they lose $300,000 worth of apparel and accessories, but the robbers even took the Swiffer. Click through for a few small photos.
LOS ANGELES: Absolut Vodka has launched a new brand: Absolute LA. "What does LA taste like in a glass, clinking with ice, and perhaps tonic?" writes Racked LA. The blog draws from FWD who says we are "fruity." "Absolut’s newest offering, Absolut Los Angeles, is a salute to the City of Angels. The limited-edition vodka will tantalize tongues with a mix of acai, acerola, pomegranate and blueberry—a flavorful nod to the earthy and eclectic inhabitants of So Cal." Tasty.
