I admit, I was one of those HOWS Grocery store groupies that just loved the experience of shopping at HOWS and frequenting the wine room on Friday evenings. HOWS had a certain “Mayberry” feel to it. The employees were really cool, the owners took the time out to talk with you.

The first time Kayla Brackson got a glimpse of Britney Spears' "I'm a Slave 4 U" video, she knew she had to learn the dance. So Kayla, who was only in middle school at the time and not allowed to watch anything Britney-related, grabbed her Walkman, snuck out to the tree house in her backyard and secretly practiced the steps over and over again.

Written by
Hi NoHo Arts,  Do you know the crosswalk on Magnolia and Blakeslee? It's out of control.  I guess no one cares until someone is hurt. But seriously, this has been going on for at least 9 years since I've lived here. How many times have you crossed it while crossing your fingers that you make it to the other side without being plowed down?
