The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by Music Director Jaime Martín, presents renowned violinist Gil Shaham on Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in A minor and the world premiere of Lucha Libre! by Juan Pablo Contreras, with works by Kodály, Ligeti and Bartók.

[NoHo Arts District, CA] – The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, conducted by music director Jaime Martín, presents Gil Shaham, “among the most inspired violinists of his generation” (The Guardian), to Dvořák’s dazzling Violin Concerto in A minor, colored with folk music from the composer’s Czech roots, on Sunday, December 11, 2022, 7 p.m., at the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena. The Grammy-winning violinist made his LACO debut in 2021, appearing in one of the highly-acclaimed “LACO Close Quarters” digital episodes, blending music and visual art.

The concert opens with the world premiere of Juan Pablo Contreras’ Lucha Libre!, a LACO Sound Investment commission that pays homage to Mexican masked wrestling, the unique cultural phenomenon the composer observed while growing up in Guadalajara. Subtitled Sinfonia Concertante for Chamber Orchestra, the piece, which LACO was originally due to release in March 2020 but was postponed due to the global pandemic, focuses on a “battle” between LACO’s master musicians, whose instruments represent Contreras’ favorites of the iconic Lucha Libre characters. Six star soloists from the Orchestra will wear custom masks created by the renowned San Diego-based artists to produce them for the wrestlers. Contreras, who was LACO’s 2019-2020 Sound Investment Composer, won the 2023 Vilcek Foundation Award for Creative Promise in Music and received a Latin Grammy Best Arrangement nomination for the title track of his orchestral debut album, Mariachitlanis “one of the most prominent young composers in Latin America” ​​(Milenio). His music “masterfully portrays Mexican identity” and is “colorfully orchestrated, emotionally intense and rhythmically vibrant” (The Informant). Sound Investment is a groundbreaking program created by LACO in 2001 that engages viewers to develop new classic works.

Additionally, the program – the second and final installment of LACO’s celebration of 100 years of Ligetie anniversary – features three other works that evoke the vibrant texture and diversity of folk music traditions: Ligeti’s Concert Romanesc and that of Bartok Romanian folk dances for winds, both influenced by Romanian folk music, and Kodaly’s Galanta Dancesreflecting the music of the composer’s childhood in Slovakia.

LACO acknowledges the generous support of the Colburn Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Orchestra also receives public funding through grants from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, the Los Angeles County Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Dear Héloïse: I recently read the story of an elderly lady who wanted shopping carts to be available near accessible parking spaces. I wish more stores would invest in Caroline’s carts. These are caddies that allow an adult with reduced mobility to sit on a chair facing the operator. It is impossible to push a wheelchair and a shopping cart at the same time. This cart allows the wheelchair user to shop with an assistant.

The reason I shop at my grocery store is because they have it. It would be beneficial for other retail stores to implement them. —Chris Marchand, Manchester, New Hampshire

TAKE PILLS

Dear Héloïse: I love your advice and I’ve been following you for years! For those who have trouble swallowing pills, try this tip: Take a big sip of water, but don’t swallow! Now put the pill – it seems like “float” – and you don’t notice it as much. Then swallow, and it should go down easier. — Karen Sinn, via email

PRACTICAL ADVICE

Dear Héloïse: I have always read your column in our daily life and I have used so much of your advice. Here are some of mine that save time and money!

After washing the towels (kitchen and bathroom), I turn them around when I put them away. This way they will all wear out at about the same time. When “white sales” come, I find the best buy and replace them all at the same time at an acceptable cost. Old towels are now used for washing cars and for other chores. Think of them as disposable rags, at no cost to you.

I also rotate my dinner dishes daily. After using steak knives or other knives on the plates so many times, they are starting to show their age. When the time comes, they will all need to be replaced around the same time. You won’t end up with just a few plates to replace. (And good luck trying to!) Grab a new set when they go on sale! I shoot everything I can. It works wonderfully!

Another trick is to use a “binding clip” at the end of your tube of toothpaste. It makes it easy to squeeze the toothpaste up to the opening and hold it there. Simply roll up the tube and continue to place it on the clip while the toothpaste is being used. Thank you for all your advice ! — A reader, by e-mail

ANOTHER USE FOR AN ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH

Dear Héloïse: I read your column daily in the Pasadena Star-News. I recently scrubbed grout off my kitchen counter and realized my electric toothbrush would make a great tool. I used your dab of baking soda, peroxide, and a little dish soap to remove a coffee stain that had been in the grout forever. Worked like magic! Thank you for all your valuable advice. — Stephanie Loew, Pasadena, CA

— — —

Héloïse’s advice is sometimes published in Lifestyles. Readers can send a hint to Heloise, PO Box 795000, San Antonio, Texas 78279-5000, fax it to 210-HELOISE, or email: Heloise@Heloise.com. Letters will not receive a personal response.

News from Sedona, AZ –The newest addition to the popular Hozho mall on Gallery Row in Sedona, Good Juju, will celebrate its grand opening on Thursday, November 3, inviting Sedona residents and visitors to see what’s in store.

Good Juju is a lifestyle boutique that owner Julie Rasmussen creatively curates to promote holistic living. The eclectic mix of merchandise includes durable linen and 100% cotton dresses from Italy, lush embroidered blouses from India, and fashion-forward clothing and accessories. The jewels are carefully chosen with an emphasis on natural components such as precious stones, wood and blown glass. Hand-beaded earrings, soy candles, bath teas and cheering books line the shelves, while stylish handbags, hats and scarves vie for attention throughout. the shop. There is also no shortage of metaphysical objects such as crystals, sage, essential oils and palo santo wood.

Rasmussen arrived in Sedona in late 2021. After an early career as a Nordstrom buyer, Rasmussen transitioned from corporate executive to style entrepreneur when she established a retail clothing store in Fullerton, California. The award-winning boutique has remained a destination for boho-chic, fashion-forward women for 28 years. The property was eventually sold to a developer and Rasmussen was forced to move.

“After making the payment in Orange County and Los Angeles with no potential leads, we had no choice but to close our doors,” Rasmussen said. “In an effort to find peace and gain clarity, my partner and I drove to Sedona to visit my sister Holly. During our visit, miracles happened, doors opened and space from the Hozho Mall on Gallery Row showed up. We knew it was the perfect place for our vision to manifest. Sedona had welcomed us with open arms.

Sedona Gift Shop

Sedona Gift Shop

With a new space in a great location, Good Juju was born. Julie teamed up with her life partner Brent Lucy, a talented artist, and created a storefront that doubles as an art studio. The walls feature the original works of Lucy’s richly colored acrylic paintings on canvas and the whole ambience of the store is uplifting.

Hanley Investment Group Arranges Sale of 139,000 Square Foot Grocery Anchor Mall in Columbus, Ohio Metro https://hollystreetbarandgrill.com/hanley-investment-group-arranges-sale-of-139000-square-foot-grocery-anchor-mall-in-columbus-ohio-metro/ Wed, 28 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://hollystreetbarandgrill.com/hanley-investment-group-arranges-sale-of-139000-square-foot-grocery-anchor-mall-in-columbus-ohio-metro/ DUBLIN, Ohio – Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in the sale of commercial properties, today announced that the company has arranged the sale of Perimeter Center, a fully leased 139,486 square feet anchored by a giant eagle Market District grocery store in Dublin, Ohio.

DUBLIN, Ohio – Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in the sale of commercial properties, today announced that the company has arranged the sale of Perimeter Center, a fully leased 139,486 square feet anchored by a giant eagle Market District grocery store in Dublin, Ohio.

Hanley Investment Group Executive Vice President Kevin Fryman and President Ed Hanley, in association with ParaSell, Inc., represented exchange buyer 1031, a subsidiary of Orton Development, Inc., with offices in Pasadena, California. The seller was an institutional real estate owner, operator and developer with a national portfolio and was represented by the JLL Retail Capital Markets team led by managing directors Clinton Mitchell and Amy Sands.

Perimeter Center is anchored in a Giant Eagle Market District grocery store. Giant Eagle, Inc. is ranked in the top 40 on Forbes’ list of largest private companies and is one of the nation’s largest food retailers and distributors with approximately $9.7 billion in annual sales. Founded in 1931, Giant Eagle, Inc. has grown to become one of the region’s leading food, fuel and drugstore retailers with over 470 stores in western Pennsylvania, north-central Ohio , northern West Virginia, Maryland and Indiana.

“The buyer sold an industrial property in Northern California and wanted to acquire an institutional-grade retail center located in a robust market with strong demographics,” Fryman said. “The average household income within five miles of the mall is $132,000.”

Fryman continues, “The buyer was attracted by the strong sales of Giant Eagle stores, their long-term operating history in the center, and the capital that Giant Eagle was investing in their location at Perimeter Center and throughout the city of Columbus, converting more of their traditional stores to their high-end Market District concept.

Perimeter Center is located on a 15.54 acre parcel on US Route 33 and Avery Road in Franklin County at 6644-6804 Perimeter Loop Road. The grocery-anchored mall was built in 1995 and serves the affluent Dublin community in the Columbus metropolitan area. The mall has a mix of internet-resistant tenants including Giant Eagle Market District, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Edward Jones, Enterprise Rent A Car, Sport Clips, UPS Store and Jersey Mike’s Subs. Perimeter Center enjoys a high daytime population due to its proximity to Nationwide, Wendy’s and Cardinal Health headquarters and easy access from Interstate 270. There are more than 154,000 people within five miles of the mall.

“Rising interest rates put pressure on capitalization rates; however, properties with the best mix of tenants in the best locations were affected the least or not at all. It all comes down to real estate fundamentals – location, tenants and lease terms,” Fryman said.

HOUSTON – Costco may be a wonderland for large bulk items, but it can also be a bit overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time.

From price tags to $1.50 hot dogs and cokes, Costco has a plethora of sizes that can be friendly to your family and your budget.

For this Bulk Buying KPRC 2 series, here are some buying tips to make your first browsing easier, thanks to myself and the Instagram influencers who visit Costco waaaaay more than me.

Price tags

The asterisk

When you look at the price tags on certain items, you might wonder why some have an asterisk.

in the upper right corner.

This means that the item will no longer be on sale (at least for a while). If you see a pallet full of these, chances are that’s all they have in stock. On these items, if it’s worth buying and you’re lingering over it, jump on it. You may not see him again for some time. This is usually the case with holiday decorations such as Christmas and Halloween.

The “.97”, “.49” and “.74”

Items with prices ending in 0.97 mean they are on clearance. Normally, 0.97 items are marked with an asterisk, which means the managers are trying to push these items out. Other times, prices ending in one of those three numbers (without an asterisk) mean that the manufacturer has a special sale.

Manager’s Specials

Manager promotions, indicated by prices ending in “.00” and “.88”, are rarely seen in some Costco stores. Managers will price these items for sale to make room for new merchandise.

General purchases

The best days to shop

Trying to avoid large crowds (and fights for parking spots)? Costco influencers say the BEST time to visit Costco is mid-week, in the afternoon. There are fewer people, more parking spaces and plenty of room to walk. If you can, avoid the weekends – they’re usually the busiest and the store closes earlier than on weekdays (Costco closes at 7 p.m. every Saturday and 6 p.m. every Sunday).

The best way to shop in store

Almost every Costco has the same layout – deals are usually on your left and electronics (such as TVs, computers, and appliances) are on your right (although others are on the opposite side) . If you’re a penny pincher, you’ll want to run to the waaaaaaaay back of the warehouse. Most of what you need, like groceries, fresh bread and produce, is in the back. If you only go to Costco for groceries, always have a list with you. Keep in mind that the further back you go, the better the offers.

Coupons

Costco unfortunately does not accept coupons from manufacturers. Most coupons are already included in the offers. BUT, you can ask customer service if there are any coupons available before making a purchase on an item. The Secret Deals You might have wondered how your next-door neighbor got a brand new 60-inch TV at a steal. That means he signed up for Costco emails about the latest deals. Some deals offered last from one day to one month and are usually below the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. If you’re looking for a good deal on an item such as furniture or electronics, sign up for these emails.

(BIG TIP: You can sign up to receive emails if you’re on the fence about membership to see if the deals are good enough for your wallet. No commitment necessary.)

You will thank me later.

The samples.

Every other day, Costco employees will be giving away multiple samples throughout the store — from foods and snacks that are part of a Costco deal to non-food items like fabric softener. You’ll feel like a free buffet if you try them all!

The return policy

Costco has a generous return policy. Whether you purchased your item online or in-store, Costco will gladly accept it. However, there is a catch (well, several). Electronics and appliances have a 90-day return policy, even if they’re under Costco’s Concierge Service, which gives most electronics an extended manufacturer’s warranty.

Read Costco’s full return policy here.

Around the store

The Kirkland Signature

Kirkland Signature is Costco’s generic brand, and many Costco influencers and shopping experts claim that most items are of the same quality as the brand. If you’re on a budget and don’t want to spend the extra $2-3 on a branded item, buy generic. You’ll find items in this quality brand, from dishwashing detergent to wine.

The big markdowns

Experts say the best markdowns happen in late summer. Yeah! With back-to-school around the corner and the smell of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas goods fresh off the pallets, that means all summer stuff – including camping gear and clothing – have to go! Managers are making room for these items as the holiday shopping season approaches.

fresh food

Do you hear that bell? It’s the sound of fresh roast chickens coming out of the oven.

From roast chickens to hot dogs, Costco has what you need to break the hunger. No dinner plan? Get a large $9.95 pizza with slices that barely fit in your hand. Dinner for one? A hot dog and a soda for $1.50 is perfect (and the hot dogs are enough to satisfy you). Need a shortcut for your family dinner? The $4.99 roast chicken can be useful for several dishes and soups.

And for those who don’t want to deal with cooking at all, there are so many convenience foods you can whip up, from street tacos to spaghetti bolognese and scampi with shrimp.

If you don’t want to be a member, but still get some benefits…

The online store There are items on Costco.com that you can still purchase as a non-member. As long as the item doesn’t have a “Member Purchased Item” tag, you can purchase it without a subscription. Members-only prices are visible ONLY if you have a Costco.com account and have a subscription linked to the account.

An example of how non-members shop on Costco.com. Most of the time, prices are hidden for members only. You must have a linked membership and a Costco.com account to purchase exclusive member pricing.

(KRPC)

The liquor store

Members and non-members alike can purchase liquor at prices that beat most traditional liquor stores. No membership necessary! You can even try out some samples when they become available.

The pharmacy

Do you have a prescription you would like filled? You can buy prescription drugs at any Costco store without a subscription. Simply notify a member of the team of your arrival.


The Costco Gift Card

If you want to buy a few items at Costco, but don’t want to commit to a membership yet, ask a friend with a membership to buy a Costco gift card to use in-store. This way you can treat it as a “trial membership”.
