West Hollywood Gay Bars To Pour Stoli In Gutters In Protest Of Russian Oppression Of Gays

Sidetrack, one of Chicago’s most prominent gay bars, began the boycott of Stoli. Stoli CEO, Val Mendeleev, released an open letter to the Advocate in response: The recent dreadful actions taken by the Russian Government limiting the rights of the LGBT community and the passionate reaction of the community have prompted me to write this letter to you. I want to stress that Stoli firmly opposes such attitude and actions. Indeed, as a company that encourages transparency and fairness, we are upset and angry. Stolichnaya Vodka has always been, and continues to be, a fervent supporter and friend to the LGBT community. We also thank the community for having adopted Stoli as their vodka of preference.

Hollywood Central Park Redesigns Website to Encourage Community Input

Liszt’s “Les Preludes” didn’t sound bad. The $1-million amplification system reproduced orchestral body, fidelity and directionality. The speakers seemed far away, so there wasn’t the sonic immediacy of sitting close, but what I heard was realistic. But the new monitors ruined the atmosphere.

At the Hollywood Bowl, an unhealthy glow

Posted by Marla Schevker (Editor) , July 29, 2013 at 11:38 AM Next Previous Slideshow Download In an effort to encourage creative individuals to offer designs for a new stretch of park, the Friends of the Hollywood Central Park (FHCP) released a new feature on its website ( http://www.hollywoodcentralpark.org ) that allows for interaction and creation. People now have the opportunity to create their own versions of the 44-acre park planned for the one-mile stretch of the Hollywood Freeway between Hollywood Boulevard/Bronson Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard/Western Avenue. According to the FHCP press release, the website, offers numerous possibilities for potential features at the park including cafes, dog parks, libraries and landscaping. Participants are invited to submit their designs to the FHCP board, who will attempt to incorporate the ideas into the final design. Knowing the level of interest in the community about Hollywood Central Park, we decided the best way to get input on what should be built was give everybody a chance to create their dream park, Laurie Goldman, FHCP president, said in a written statement.
