Top 4 Reasons to Go Little Tokyo for the​ ​Allegiance Broadway Musical

The Broadway musical, Allegiance, starring George Takei, will take center stage in LA’s most vibrant neighborhood, Little Tokyo, February 21 – April 1, 2018. Planning to see the musical? Go Little Tokyo, the community campaign offering top insights into Little Tokyo, presents countless opportunities to discover or re-discover one of Los Angeles’ most historically rich and energetic urban neighborhoods. From family-owned eateries, to traditional sweet shops and discounted tickets, Go Little Tokyo presents the top 4 reasons to experience a deliciously, authentic night in Little Tokyo, before and after the musical.

1. Tastes of Allegiance Time Period: Let your taste buds travel back in time and dine where the scent of nostalgia lives, at Little Tokyo’s classic Japanese diner, Kouraku. Located in the heart of Little Tokyo and open since 1976, Kouraku is a cozy mom-and-pop eatery offering an array of authentic Japanese comfort food dishes from ramen, curry, and their famous tenshin chahan ankake, a gravy covered omelet filled with pork fried rice. Awarded “Best After Midnight Snack” by Los Angeles Downtown News, Kouraku is open nightly until 3am.


2. Become a Sushi Aficionado: No tempura, no teriyaki, no noodles – no problem! Experience traditional, delicious sushi at Hama Sushi in an intimate, laid-back setting. Enjoy high-quality nigiri sushi and menu favorites like the sashimi platters, red snapper with a squeeze of lemon and brush of salt, and the spicy tuna roll. Pro tip: For the true aficionado experience, sit at the sushi bar and ask for the decadent off-menu item, Salmon Belly Nigiri.


3. Enjoy a ‘sweetened’ Encore: Continue the entertainment after the musical and indulge in your greatest dessert fantasies at Snowya. Offering sweet treats like croissant taiyaki with your choice of filling and their signature snowflake shaved ice bowls, Snowya offers melt-in-your-mouth goodness that guests can surely applaud. Capture the moment with an Instagram-able photo of the infamous fish-shaped cone topped with your favorite matcha ice cream.


4. Use code GOLITTLETOKYO for 15% off Allegiance tickets: Purchase tickets to the powerful and uplifting musical with Go Little Tokyo’s 15% off promo code: GOLITTLETOKYO. Allegiance is inspired by the true story of L.A.-based actor, director and author George Takei. The musical transports audiences back to a dark time in U.S. history when roughly 120,000 Japanese-Americans were forced into internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Experience the Los Angeles premier of the musical in Little Tokyo, where the story has it’s richest legacy. Promo code valid on performances 3/1–3/31, excluding Sundays, on sections A–D.

Peyton Manning Becomes Vacation Quarterback in Universal Parks & Resorts Super Bowl Ad Two-Time Super Bowl Champion Helps Family Raise its Vacation Game

Peyton Manning becomes vacation quarterback to America in a new Universal Parks & Resorts commercial set to air during the Super Bowl – coaching families to take their vacation to the next level at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.

“This is your moment,” Peyton coaches a family starting its day at a Universal theme park in the extended version of the spot.  “You are more than a team.  You are a family.  Now let’s get out there and play.”

Manning joins the family during both spots to ensure they really do take fun to the next level.  He screams on a roller coaster, scrambles away from a Raptor showing its “game face,” and has a churro intercepted right out of his hands – and more.

5 Tips to choosing a good family law attorney if you are going through a divorce

Nobody marries thinking that they are going to be getting a divorce some time later. Going through a divorce takes a great deal of strength and a positive outlook on life to get through the trials and tribulations that come from divorcing your partner. If you have children involved, the situation gets even stickier and can cause a great deal of strife amongst others outside of your nuclear family. It is amazing how many people will be involved in your divorce which means that it is imperative to find a solid and experienced family law attorney to help you with your divorce proceedings. This article will provide some tips for helping you choose the right family lawyer for your situation.



  • What can you afford? This can be a point of contention for many as one spouse may make more money than the other. One spouse may have family members who are also willing to contribute to the cost of a great attorney. When you choose your attorney, make sure that you can afford their services. Separating funds and paying for your own bills and utilities can be stressful and require you to live paycheck to paycheck for a period of time until you get back on your feet. While you want to choose an attorney who will be able to represent you well, you need to choose one that you can afford or you will only create more problems of the financial nature.




  • What level of service will you require? Even if your divorce is amicable, it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney to advise you on how to proceed. If you own property together, or you have other assets, you will want an attorney to be able to advise you on how to protect yourself. If your spouse has a great deal of assets, your attorney may be able to advise you on what you have access to that is rightly yours. While divorce should not be about money, it can quickly turn into a financial battleground.




  • Look online at reviews for various firms. When looking at reviews online, it is important to take them with a grain of salt. When was the last time you wrote a review for a service that you enjoyed? Many times only the disgruntled will leave a review so be sure to interview a variety of lawyers first before committing to one.




  • Choose a lawyer who specializes in family and divorce law. While this may seem like common sense, it is amazing how many people hire a lawyer strictly based on how they know the person. Be sure to hire an attorney who specializes in family and divorce law so they can advise you on pertinent issues that other attorneys may overlook.




  • Follow your gut feeling. At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable with your attorney and believe that they will advocate for you and represent you will. After meeting with several attorneys, it is important to go with your gut feeling and choose the attorney who you think will work best with you.


By employing these tips and checking out, you will be able to find a family attorney that will meet your needs.

LA Children’s Chorus Rings in Holidays at Disney Hall Dec. 3

159 LACC-Jamie Pham

Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC), one of the world’s foremost children’s choirs, rings in the holidays with special guest, Grammy Award-winning opera singer Susan Graham, and members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a concert featuring the world premiere of Los Angeles-based composer Paul Gibson’s Ring Out, Wild Bells – based on Tennyson’s beloved poem and arranged for chorus, organ, strings and handbells – as well as a range of sublime classical works, joyful holiday carols and poignant readings on Sunday December 3, 2017, 7 pm, at Walt Disney Concert Hall, as part of the LA Philharmonic’s prestigious “Sounds About Town” series.  LACC Artistic Director Anne Tomlinson leads the program of musical selections interspersed with readings drawn from such universal themes as creation, hope and change by ee cummings, Kenneth Grahame, Theodore Roethke, Robert Louis Stevenson, St. Francis of Assisi and Fra Giovanni Giocondo.


“This evening of music and poetry was inspired by ‘A Festival of Lessons and Carols,’ a cherished annual Christmas Eve tradition introduced in 1918 by King’s College Choir in Cambridge, England, that touches on universal human experiences through thoughtful verse and moving song and has been broadcast around the globe by the BBC every holiday since 1930,” says Tomlinson.

In addition to Gibson’s work, LACC performs Kim André Arneson’s Even When He is Silent and This Christmastide by British Academy Award-winning composer Donald Fraser, and reprises Dale Trumbore’s Breathe in Hope, which was commissioned for and premiered by the Chorus in May.  Graham joins the Chorus for the holiday carols O Holy NightA Christmas Lullaby and Now Have Good Day by Derek Holman.  The eclectic program also includes Thompson’s Velvet Shoes and Choose Something Like a Star; “Bereite dich, Zion” from Bach’sChristmas Oratorio; Praetorius’s Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming; “Et exultavit” and “Esurientes” from Vivaldi’s Magnificat; “Hymn to Dawn” from Holst’s Rig Veda, a collection of hymns inspired by the composer’s interest in Sanskrit and Hindu religion and poetry; and Debussy’s Noël des enfants qui n’ont plus de maisons.

Five of LACC’s highly regarded ensembles perform separately and combined.  Tomlinson conducts the chorus’s Concert Choir and Chamber Singers; Associate Artistic Director Mandy Brigham leads the Intermediate Choir; Diana Landis leads the Apprentice Choir; and Dr. Steven Kronauer conducts the Young Men’s Ensemble.

Tickets start at $20; children ages 6-17 are half price.  (Suitable for children ages 6 and up.)  For tickets and information, visit or call (626) 793-4231.  Walt Disney Concert Hall is located at 111 South Grand Avenue at First Street in downtown Los Angeles.
