Which is worse: No Metro Service to Dodger Stadium or Americana at Brand?
The Dodgers have called Los Angeles home for 50 years. To celebrate, they added 1000 parking spaces for your 4-wheeled convenience. Subway? Nope. Streetcar? Keep dreaming. Shuttle? We’re still waiting in line to get to the Coliseum. MetroRiderLA reported Metro’s failure for that historic occasion on every level. Crappy shuttles, long wait for trains, and one very blue fanbase:
Some fans were still stranded at Dodger Stadium while the game had been going on for an hour some six miles away. These people will likely never attempt to go to a baseball game without a car ever again.
For another spectacle, we turn to the world of development and retail. Very, very exciting. Especially when your host is Rick Caruso, the Greatest American Ever to Set Foot in Glendale. Rick is the brain behind The Grove. You’re welcome. For his next trick, he delivers Americana at Brand. This new shopping/dining/unaffordable housing thing will have its own trolley and a street named after its Founding Father. It will also provide Glendalians with a much needed Cheesecake Factory. CurbedLA reports that [email protected] will also feature a “Spirit of American Youth” statue:
The statue is a re-creation of the 1949 sculpture at the Omaha Beach Memorial in France that commemorates soldiers who died on Normandy Beach.
Kinda makes you wish both of these were April Fool’s jokes, no?Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
