Grab a Beer and Plant a Tree


You love trees and art and rivers, don’t you? So here’s what you need to do. Get up early tomorrow morning and be at the corner of 4th and Molino by 9 o’clock to help out the nice folks at The Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association, Conservation Corps and the Downtown Business Improvement District. The group is planting nearly two dozen trees in the arts district. The beer and sausage restaurant Wurstküche helped procure the Willows and Magnolias to be planted along 4th street by volunteers just like you. I imagine some in the group will find their way to our favorite Belgian sausagery afterward. Feel free to enjoy a fine Duchesse De Bourgogne, after planting all those trees you deserve it.
