Happy 227th, Los Angeles!

The City of Los Angeles' website might have forgotten its own birthday, but you know the Militant hasn't! Today he may or may not celebrate it by taking a ceremonial stroll down Olvera Street, which, as any militant Angeleno knows, is not the actual birthplace of Los Angeles, but an incredible simulation! At what time will or won't he be there? Of course he won't tell you. But feel free to drop by anytime today, knowing that the Militant may or may not be walking there with you.

Feliz Cumpleaños, El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Angeles del Río de Porciúncula!

Some birthday visuals for ya:

An encore of the Militant's April 30th post, Blu & Exile's "Soul Amazing."

Needs no introduction.

I strolled down uncrowded Olvera on tuesday and had lunch at Philipe's. I recommend everybody do the same!
