Thanks to the Rain The Antelope Valley Poppy Bloom Might Be Spectacular This Year

February 6, 2017 by Brian Champlin

Advertisements

7 inches.

That’s the minimum amount of rain necessary to make a prodigious poppy bloom possible at the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve in Lancaster, CA. We’re already over the mark as enter month two of 2017, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

“We need the rains to continue on a regular basis to maintain the bloom,” California State Park Interpreter Jean Rhyne tells the San Francisco Chronicle. “That’s really what they need. With the past years of drought, there isn’t a lot of moisture built up in the soil. If we’d had several years of good rain and enough moisture content in the soil, the plants would be growing early enough to carry them through a freeze or heat wave. The roots needs to be deep enough for them to tolerate extreme conditions.”

Despite the caution, the early signs are good.

Here’s the latest update according to the official Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve website:

“As of February 6th, the recent rains have started to green up the hills with tiny wildflower sprouts, but it is too early to determine if and when we will have a good bloom this year. We are currently seeing a lot of grasses and filaree sprouts and not very many poppies, but new sprouts are coming up every day so check back weekly for updates.  If all goes well, we can expect the bloom to start in early to mid-March and last until mid-April or later.”

Mexicali is Giving Away Free Tacos For Their 5th Anniversary on Feb. 15

February 3, 2017 by Brian Champlin

Advertisements

What’s the only thing better than tacos in Los Angeles? FREE tacos in Los Angeles!

And if freebies are your jam then we’ve got a deal you need to know about…

The folks over at Mexicali’s Taco & Co. are celebrating their 5th anniversary On February 15 by giving away two free tacos to customers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Just make sure you wish them a happy anniversary to unlock the offer.

Here’s the deets per the official Facebook page of Mexicali:

“Stop by from 11a-3p that day and tell our cashier, ‘HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY’ and get 2 FREE TACOS! Thanks for your patronage and an awesome first 5 years!”

Photo via Mexicali Taco & Co. Facebook Page

Mexicali Taco & Co. is located at 702 N. Figueroa Street, on the western edge of Chinatown,  just past the 101/110 interchange. The taco shop is the brainchild of chef Esdras Ochoa, who you may have heard about via recent acclaim for his newest venture in Frogtown called Salazar. Mexicali is also a personal favorite of the We Like L.A. staff (we highly recommend trying a Vampiro at some point).

That said, the freebie deal is sure to spread fast (sorry in advance for blowing up the spot!) and that means it’s likely to get a bit crowded

With a relatively small seating area inside the restaurant, we recommend you plan to grab and go with your tacos. Also pack a little patience if you choose to stop by and be sufficiently tolerant of lines that may form around the giveaway.

Whatever your gameplan is, enjoy the tacos!

Oh, and happy 5th anniversary to Mexicali Taco & Co!
