The largest banquet room at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel was so tightly packed (over 400 people, we understand) that the buffet luncheon lines had to be set up outside. The event? The 35th Annual Mayor’s State of the City Luncheon, presented by the Culver City Chamber of Commerce. Outgoing Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells graciously gave out tributes to city staff that had the audience applauding at [...]

Starting this Monday, March 30, please don’t try to go barreling down the Bike Path Access Ramp at Duquesne Ave: it’ll be closed intermittently between Monday and April 10, and then closed all day, every day, between April 16 and April 20. (Use the access points at Overland and National) This will allow for the restoration of The Rivers of the World (“ROW”) mural on the bike path access [...]

There’s also an annual Art Walk, but [...]
