‘L.A. Live’ Is Spiffy, But Doesn’t Beat NFL Stadium

Thanks to My Boy Barry, I went to a Lakers game last week with SbB Girls Colene, Denise and Natasha.

It was kind of a blah game against the Wizards, but it was Colene and Natasha’s first Lakers game, and it gave me the chance to check out the new downtown L.A. development called L.A. Live.

L.A. Live is an area just north of Staples Center that features shopping, restaurants and a new, badass Ritz-Carlton hotel. AEG was behind the build, and Tim Leiweke & Co. did a fabulous job.

Initially I heard that L.A. Live was being modeled after Times Square, which of course had us all thinking the same thing: Tacky. (Just ask most New Yorkers.) Thankfully AEG thought upscale, with some high-end food outlets, an ESPN Zone, The Ritz, and the absolutely gorgeous Nokia Theatre.

The land where L.A. Live went up was initially proposed by AEG to facilitate a NFL stadium, but the lying, thieving local politicians blocked the possibility and instead had the brilliant idea to ask the NFL to move to the dilapidated Coliseum. And we all saw how that went.

Now we have pretenders like Ed Roski wasting our time, as the local media desperately laps up his doomed NFL stadium plan.

To¬† be honest, I think the majority of Angelenos prefer Fleming’s Steakhouse and Lucky Strike over the NFL anyway.
