BLVD Friendsgiving in a Minute or Less

Every year at Synchronicity LA we host a Friendsgiving Feast for all the folks of our extended community, The BLVD Collective.   Here’s a flavor.





Save Palm Grove!


In our sprawling city, It’s not uncommon to find the most incredible flavors in a hole-in-the-strip-mall joint that’s squeezed between an auto zone, a 99 cent store, and a 24 hour donut shop.  That is certainly the case with Palm Grove Ethiopian Restaurant.  It’s a tiny, unassuming eatery that is full of surprise after surprise.  The food is colorful, delicious, abundant, and very affordable.  The injera is fresh baked, the menu diverse, and the coffee is not just brewed to order, its roasted to order!  It’s the best option in the neighborhood for vegans and vegetarians, and the top choice for the folks of the BLVD Collective.  We are a group of about 60 people on and around Westmoreland BLVD that share ideas, meals, friendship, and monthly art events.  When we heard that Palm Grove was struggling, we put our heads together and thought up a way that we could use our power in numbers to help them out.

On Saturday we hosted a “Save Palm Grove” lunch and filled every one of the 30 available seats.  It was important for us to come together and show the owner that our community values her business.  And we wanted to make sure we strengthened their presence on Yelp.  A positive Yelp profile is really essential for a restaurant in an area that doesn’t have much foot traffic.  A few of us are photograhers, so we snapped some shots during the lunch to spice up the Yelp profile.  And after the lunch, we hosted a “Yelping Party” and all created accounts and gave positive, well thought out reviews.  The event was a great success, and will hopefully help bring more business to our neighborhood treasure!

 





Sync is 5 years old

Hooray!





Beautiful Puppy “Frances” Needs a Lifelong Home!

Frances came to us about 1 month ago and is about 4 months old!  She is mellow, obedient (has already learned to sit and lie down), and a lover!  Snuggles for days.   Frannie is about 20 pounds right now and we predict that she could be 40-50 when full grown.  As far as we know, she’s a pit chow mix.

 

We’re sorry to see her go, but need someone who is looking for the long term commitment that comes with puppy love.  Please email us at contact@synchronicityla.com if you are       interested or know someone who might be.

Meeting point is Normandie Park (NE corner of Venice and Normandie)

2013 BLVD Retreat

 

Synchronicity LA is part of a greater collective of folks who have moved to our BLVD.  We share our art/music studio, meals, ideas, and collaborate together.  We recently ventured up to the hills of Simi Valley for some workshops, good times, campfires, group feasts, tequila in watermelons, music making, leisure sports, boggle and, yes, a 600 ft. zipline to play on.





2013 Winter Retreat!





The Golden Scarab Synchronicity – Inspired by Carl Jung

Took a trip to Austin.  Read some Carl Jung.  Got inspired.  Had a conversation.  Recorded it.  Made a video with Tinny.





Molly Reports

Molly Gray, a graduate student from USC, recently visited our humble abode and wrote a wonderful article about us in her blog entitled Molly Reports. The report talks about our community and one other called Villanova. Molly is an Annenberg Fellow working toward an MA in Digital Journalism at the University of Southern California. Thanks for coming over and spending time with us Molly!

You can check out the beginning of her report below and then go to her website to see more. We also posted the slideshow and video she created.

Update! Molly’s article was just accepted to the Huffington Post, so feel free to also read her article via the HuffPost!

Artistic communities are a haven for artists in the middle of the city

by Molly Gray…posted April 25, 2012

Aside from a few small details — a bronze peace sign above the front door and a turquoise bus parked in the driveway — this craftsman house in a quiet West Adams neighborhood looks just like any other.

Once inside, the sounds of the electronic pop band Passion Pit and the smells of vegetarian Thai curry drift throughout the home.

It’s nearing 8:30 p.m. and pretty soon a hand-carved wooden whistle will signal to anywhere between 10 and 20 people that dinner is ready… all of molly’s article…

Mr. Bolivar – Waste Vegetable Oil vs. Diesel Emissions

Rogelio Bolivar lives in Denver and converts diesel engines to Waste Vegetable Oil as a hobby and way of life. A day after Tin and I met him he was on his way to a diesel emissions test center to see the difference in emissions between diesel and WVO.
