WEHO Times - It’s true. Café D’Etoile, the beloved West Hollywood restaurant known for serving French-American faire, located in the heart of WeHo’s Boystown, has closed after serving the community for the past 36 years. Tonight was its last night of operation.

The following statement was posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page:

LA Times - The Chinese company that owns Grindr, the world’s most popular gay dating app, has revived a plan for a public stock offering after a U.S. national security panel dropped its opposition to the idea.

Beijing Kunlun Tech, a gaming company, said in a filing to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange that the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States “now had no opposition to launching the listing process” for Grindr.

WEHOville - LASC, West Hollywood’s best-known local men’s apparel retailer, is closing its doors after completing a liquidation sale that will begin Thursday.

Don Zuidema, who founded LASC with his partner Mike McGinley in 1983, announced the closing this morning.

“LASC has been a part of the West Hollywood community for over 36 years,” Zuidema said. “We are especially grateful to all our employees, past and present, who have worked tirelessly to make LASC one of the premier men’s stores in the country. As we enter the next chapter in our lives we take with us the wonderful memories and special experiences that LASC has afforded us.”

the Pride - The Sunset Boulevard store was the first to go, back in 2016. Last year, the West Hollywood flagship Circus of Books, an old-school store specializing in porn mags, books, and videos, shuttered to the dismay and sadness of many.

But let’s save our tears: the gay legacy left by Circus of Books isn’t quite dead. Not yet, anyway, thanks to filmmaker Rachel Mason, whose parents Karen and Barry were responsible for taking over the legendary porn store in the 1980s.



WEHOville - At the Gold Coast, Jeff plays a wide variety of music — oldies, rock, pop, R&B, dance music sets and even some country — but that wasn’t always the case. Back in the early 80s, DJs just played dance music all night, as did Jeff for the first 20 years of his career. Then in 2005, at the urging of the then-manager of the Gold Coast, he started playing a wider variety of music. “It became very popular, the customers really liked it — they expressed their admiration. And that’s the format that I’ve been doing ever since.”
