EXPLORE L.A. LIVE

Downtown L.A. is being revitalized with a vengeance and the New Nokia theatre L.A. Live is the most ambitious project yet. With the most innovative acoustics to date, this theatre has already hosted the American Music Awards and some great recording artists. The Nokia Theatre is fast becoming the medium-sized venue of choice. But that's not all. The plans to expand L.A. Live by adding more venues, restaurants and outdoor entertainment are only months away.

ADOPT A PET

Every day in L.A., hundreds of pets are left homeless and nearly 80,000 die in animal shelters throughout Los Angeles County each year. But, the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is approaching pet adoption differently, allowing thousands of animals to live -- and in wonderful surroundings -- for as long as it takes to find them loving homes.
