mikkelerSo it’s not as civically important as defending the image of Los Angeles in the national media, or challenging recent toothless water conservation restrictions in California. But inspired by a tweet from the inimitable Alissa Walker, who often blogs about her responses to articles that strike a nerve, I’m chiming in with my two pints about two new listicles that take on a subject near and dear to many parents’ hearts: where they can enjoy a beer without having to hire a babysitter.

Here’s LA Weekly Squid Ink’s 10 Places for New Parents to Eat Out and Drink Beer, written by Heather Platt. Having contributed similar articles for the same media outlet, I know the work it takes and research involved. I salute the heavy lifting that goes into dragging around babies and/or kids to make this article happen, and I’m glad other people are doing it, since that wasn’t the case when I started this here website.

Christmas in L.A. is always weird and unusual, since it’s far from your picture-perfect American image of falling snow and fires that roar due to necessity.
