WeKnowWeHo Re-Imagines the Entertainment Scene During the Pandemic

The outdoor dining patio at Barney’s Beanery

We don’t know about you, but we are a little tired of hearing “pivot” in every Zoom meeting we attend. We propose …Re-imagine. Webster says, “to imagine again or anew; especially to form a new conception of re-create.” Join us as Tracy and Maxine explore some re-imaginings in this week’s episode of We Know WeHo.

Football Season: The Rams faced off against the Dallas Cowboys in the sports venue marvel known as SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. As the stadium must remain fanless due to C19, we answer the burning question, where can a WeHoan catch a game? We suggest Rocco’s, State Social House, The Belmont, Hi Tops, Barney’s Beanery and the girls’ fave .. 40 Love.

Outdoor Dining: Speaking of Barney’s Beanery, Tracy is kind of in love with its new outdoor space. She’s also crushing on Norah, Strings of Life and Weho adjacent, Carlitos Gardel on Melrose. It’s no secret that these reimagined outdoor extensions make her very happy indeed.

Pozole. Po-what? As we head into the final stretch of dineL.A., Maxine and Tracy chat about their pick on the Gracias Madres menu. GM’s vegetarian version features corn, chickpea, carrots, cabbage, tortilla chips and cashew cream. We want to sit in the garden, sip on a bespoke margarita for an idyllic Melrose afternoon.

Amazon Pop Up: Maxine is a self professed Amazon junkie, and this soon-to-open pop up on Melrose will offer a fresh twist for those ready to take their obsession IRL. We’ve heard it will be “A themed selection of top brands, frequently updated and presented to you by Amazon.” 8551 MelroseAve.

Sunday Funday: Sadly, the Santa Monica Boulevard bar crawl won’t be the same as Rage closes its doors after 40 years serving the LGBTQ+ community. Thank you for all the fun times, Rage.

Finally, we want to thank all of the firefighters who are bravely battling the wildfires. Our very own WeHo fire fighting squad is adding much needed support to the frontlines and we keep all of them in our thoughts.

That’s a wrap for this week. Please let us know in the comments below what some of your favorite outdoor spots are and where you will be catching these Sunday football games. Make sure to subscribe to We Know Weho on Apple and Spotify podcasts and follow us on instagram @weknowweho.

Agreed! Pivot is corporate speak, which should be banned in all other environments (hell, just ban corporate speak everywhere!). Words are glorious. The al frescos popping up are magical. The human condition adapts, especially in a creative city.
