Hanock Park Heineman & Heineman Historic-Cultural Monument #1108

Historic-Cultural Monument #1108 is a glorious estate built at the height of the American Arts & Crafts movement by renowned Craftsman architect Arthur Heineman. Heineman – and his firm Heineman & Heineman – was a major force in the Arts and Crafts Movement in California. The firm is perhaps best known for their Craftsman style bungalows in Pasadena including the Parson House on East California (1909-10) and the Bowen Court on Villa Street (1910). 221 S St. Andrews Place is a prime example of the Craftsman style and ethos. The home was originally built in 1913 and has recently been beautifully renovated by one of Los Angeles’s very best modern day architects, Barbara Bestor.

You might not recognize the name of Jean Gloria Killion, AIA, but the little known architect is one of the great, unsung architects of the mid-century modern era, female or otherwise. The Killion Residence, listed for sale recently in Pasadena, is the only home designed by Killion that maintains her name and the only project for which she would receive credit in print media as having designed on her own. Credit must be given when and where credit is due, and The Killion Residence is one of the great mid-century homes in the Los Angeles area, a dreamy treehouse on the hillside with fantastic views of Downtown LA.

Support Your Favorite Local Restaurants by Ordering Thanksgiving Dinner In

Novelist, screenwriter, and director Nora Ephron’s famous Thanksgiving turkey recipe was simply to salt and pepper the bird and stick it in the oven at 450 degrees and “do not do one thing to it. You don’t baste it…you might have to cover it a certain point. And you might have to drain some of the fat that comes off, but it’s all these years of endless basting for nothing, it turns out.”

Believe her or not, preparing a Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends can sometimes feel a bit like a chore, especially in 2020 when you will most likely be entertaining far fewer friends and family, or anyone at all. With restaurants in Los Angeles set to close dine-in services this Wednesday for at least the next few weeks, ordering your Thanksgiving dinner in is a great and easy way to support some of your favorite restaurants who no doubt have had an extraordinarily difficult year.

Check out this list of restaurants and grocers who will do all the work for you: select and test the recipes, cook the meal, and (in some cases) deliver it straight to your door. Restaurants include Little Dom’s in Los Feliz, Freedman’s in Echo Park, Lawry’s in Beverly Hills, Wexler’s in Downtown, Lunetta in Santa Monica, and many more.
