The Metro Gold Line Expands to the East!

Be sane and safe—if you drink, walk and go public transit! Be green, be more carbon neutral! And it's our responsibility as good citizens to participate in what our great city has to offer, don't you agree? We can improve our economy by having more fun, I say.

The Gold Line Eastside Extension opens this Sunday, November 15. For all the official details, check out: http://www.metro.net/projects_studies/eastside/default.htm. One nice feature is that you can ride the entire Gold Line from Sierra Madre Villa to East Los Angeles without having to change trains, even at Union Station.
The LA Times had an informative article detailing eateries along the 8 stops which go from Little Tokyo to East LA—from sushi to tortas, as they say. Here’s the link to the full story: http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-goldline11b-2009nov11,0,4084038.story. Did you know there’s a place called Purgatory Pizza http://theguide.latimes.com/restaurants/purgatory-pizza-venue near the 1St Street bridge at the Pico Alisa stop? They include vegan pizzas with toppings like goat cheese with pesto, or non-veg like Black Forest ham.  See their website at www.eatatpurgatorypizza.com.

Plus, they serve ice cream by Carmela, who makes amazing sounding flavors culled from farmers market seasonal ingredients like lavender and honey, basil and lemon. I can’t wait to check it out. 
My first thought when I looked at the Little Tokyo/Arts District stop location was “how far to the Edison?” Well, folks, if you are stout of heart, you can walk about 3 blocks from the stop to The Edison http://www.edisondowntown.com/main.htm. If you haven’t been to this very fabulous upbeat and unique venue, you have to check it out. It’s in the city’s original private power plant at 108 W. 2nd St, 90012. They have kept much of the original electrical equipment plus made an exotic art deco lounge with interesting events like every Wednesday night's Incandescence: The Dark Side of Light.
Here’s the route to walk from the Little Tokyo Gold Line stop: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=S+Alameda+St+%26+E+1st+St,+Los+Angeles,+CA+90012&daddr=108+W+2nd+St,+Los+Angeles,+CA+90012&hl=en&geocode=&mra=ls&dirflg=w&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=35.547176,78.837891&ie=UTF8&z=17.
