Monday – Sunday 8:00 pm – 2:00 am
Young folk, check out Grown club night every Wednesday. See more events on their calendar. They offer a full bar.
The Los Angeles City Council has approved changes to the City of Los Angeles’ Water Conservation Ordinance. Following approval by the City Council, the Ordinance just needs to be signed by the Mayor. If and when this happens the new rules will go into effect the following week.
Instead of the entire city being stuck watering on the same limited days, the week is getting split in half. This new plan is partially a result of last summer’s epidemic of water main breaks.
If your address ends with an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) you may water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays before 9:00 am or after 4:00 pm.
If your address ends with an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 ) you may water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays before 9:00 am or after 4:00 pm.
If your address has a fraction, use the last full number. For example, 1234 ½ ends with a 4 and is considered an even numbered address.
Different types of sprinklers will be subject to different time limits. Spray head sprinklers and bubblers (non conserving models) are limited to 8 minutes per cycle and one cycle per day per area. Rotors and multi-stream rotary heads are limited to 15 minutes per cycle and up to two cycles per day per area.
Hand-watering using garden hoses fitted with shut-off nozzle devices is allowed any day of the week before 9:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. This does not include watering your driveway!
Not sure what type of sprinkler you have? Check out the pictures and descriptions on Clemson.

I had the pleasure of visiting Plant Vacation at the Hammer a few weekends ago. Machine Project has been doing all sorts of wonderful things at the Hammer recently as part of the artist in residency program. This new adventure is a month long vacation for your houseplants. I bet a lot of these plants came from Echo Park. The plants are spending the month of August being cared for and entertained by volunteers and artists. You can join in on most of the fun by checking the schedule below. I was surprised by how many people actually brought their plants. We even witnessed plant triage on the museum stairs when one couple’s plant broke. The pot shattered but they created a makeshift home out of newspaper. It was a wonderful act of plant love. The plants look beautiful on the Linbrook terrace in the museum against a long wall of windows. If you find yourself in the UCLA area you should check it out. Thursdays are free! If you go on a Saturday be sure to stop by the coat room near the entrance, also one of the world’s smallest theaters known as the Little William Theater. The music wafts through the lobby and into the courtyard of the hammer. For such a little theater, the sound is amazingly large. These performances are also brought to us by the wonderful minds that orbit Machine Project.
Plant Vacation Schedule:
* Saturday July 31st 11am to 5pm: Drop off at the Hammer Museum and plant portrait photography
* Saturday August 7th 1-4pm: Musical performances, dramatic readings, and psychic plant healing
