We all live here for many reasons; weather, creative outlets and all the opportunities that only Southern California provides. The NoHo Arts District and surrounding areas provide one of the most unique living experiences throughout the Los Angeles area.
My name is Sky (ID# A1358453) and I am at the East Valley Animal Shelter located at 14409 Vanowen St, Van Nuys. I am a female, black and white Pit Bull Terrier. I am 11 months old and I want to live. I love children and other pets and most of all I would love a Mom and/or Dad.
After a recent trip to Paris it dawned on me that I really didn't see any fat people the entire time I was there. Everybody was generally speaking; in pretty good shape. Maybe it's the pressure of living in the fashion capital of the world. I mean how else are you going to get those skinny designer jeans on?

WHAT: Six Taste has teamed up with www.nohoartsdistrict.com to launch the NoHo Arts District Food Tours.

Guests will sample delicate Latin fusion small plates and retakes on American classics, as well as nouveau Italian and soul food favorites topped off with homemade pies.
"North Hollywood is a walkable arts district, has a rich history, and has every art genre within its one-mile boundaries," says Jeff Okita, CEO of Six Taste.
