Another BRAND NEW EPISODE of Pass the Salt Podcast is up!
This week: Downtown LA dive bar, Bar 107, has launched a Twitter revolution — #occupybar107 — refusing to leave even though their landlord has asked them to. Why? They say it’s because the landlord wants to bring in a new tenant who will pay a higher rent. We talk about our favorite hole-in-the-walls who’ve fallen victim to gentrification and our own hipster-guilt (or lack thereof) about forcing small mum-and-pop restaurants out when we/”they” move in.
Plus — An exhibit of historic LA restaurant menus… What we learned from checking out the To Live and Dine in LA exhibit at the central Los Angeles Public Library this week!
And finally — our favorite segment, our Bite of the Week, featuring bites from Dallas, Hawaii and Bren’s oddball combination that makes all of our noses turn up!
Our latest Pass the Salt Podcast is up and running and if you nerd out like we do on Game of Thrones and the food world, this one is made for you. “Food Fame of Thrones” (Episode 11) is a mash up like no other where we cast chefs and personalities from the food world into the Game of Thrones. Listen, laugh, wonder and please help us cast the entire family tree!
(Special thanks to Michael JD @mykojd for creating the Web of Thrones map.)
