Thanksgiving is around the corner!

EC Los Angeles is getting in the Thanksgiving spirit with two of our teachers, Andrea & Max, growing in ‘staches for Movember, and all of the school donating change to support prostate cancer research. The staff and students have also been pitching in dried and canned food for the Westside Food Bank food drive. All the donated food will be distributed to families that are in need during this holiday season. In the spirit of giving and in celebration of the upcoming holiday, there will be free apple and pumpkin pie in the 2nd floor student lounge during the lunch break on Wednesday at 12:15. YUMMY!

LA Lakers!

I am a huge fan of basketball, and as a native Angeleno, the Lakers are, and always will be, my favorite team. With the addition of superstars Dwight Howard (from the Orlando Magic) and Steve Nash (from the Phoenix Suns), the Lakers starting line up is looking pretty killer. I’m sure this will be a very promising and exciting season for this Los Angeles team. On Tuesday, the NBA (National Basketball Association) season started with a game between the LA Lakers and the 2011 Champion Dallas Mavericks, followed by a game against the Portland Trailblazers yesterday. The next game is scheduled against the LA Clippers – hometown rivalry! – on Friday. If you don’t have cable TV to watch the game at home, Barney’s Beanery on 3rd Street Promenade is a great place to enjoy the game in a sports bar environment! And if you have the means, catching a game LIVE at the Staples Center is a great trip idea too.
