Stepping inside Spring restaurant in downtown Los Angeles can be breathtaking, especially the first time. Named after the street it is on, Spring Street, Spring is somewhat discreet from the outside. As you enter through the glass door, you will walk through a long white hall to the hostess stand. To your left will be a long white counter that is the perimeter of the large open kitchen. And in front of you will be the stunning dining room. Located in a 19th century architectural treasure, the Douglas Building was designed in 1898. The atrium of the building houses the restaurant, which is 6,000 square feet. The large open space is glass-roofed, allowing a lot of natural light to flow through the room during the day. In the center of the room is a stone fountain and a tree strung with tree lights.
I have never been a big sports fan so I have never had a loyalty to a team. Sure, as a child, I was a big fan of the Dodgers, specifically Steve Garvey, and slept in my number 6 t-shirt every night. But when I went to college at UC Santa Barbara, we voted off our football team my freshman year in lieu of raising tuition. Then, when I returned to Los Angeles after college, we lost the LA Rams. Since 1994, Los Angeles did not have a national football team and I really did not care. But this year, the LA Rams returned to Los Angeles and there is something special about that. A city like Los Angeles should have a football team and it is nice to have the team return that I grew up with. With their first season underway, most of the players came out recently for the Inaugural Taste of the NFL – Los Angeles Rams event at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios Hollywood. taste-of-the-nfl-los-angeles-rams-events-2016-42 Taste of the NFL is a national organization where the country's top chefs and the NFL's greatest players raise money in support of food banks across the United States. Taste of the NFL - Los Angeles Rams event was hosted by the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.With one in seven people in Los Angeles County experiencing food insecurity, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank is fighting to end hunger in our community. Since 1973, they have been sourcing food and other products and distributing them to needy people through charitable agencies or directly through programs and have distributed more than 1 billion pounds of food.
