New Sites: Metromix Goes Live Today

19836576.jpgThe Tribune’s what-to-do/where-to-go Web site, Metromix, is launching its L.A. site today. Metromix L.A. Editor Deborah Vankin sends along this note of triumph:


Hello friends: just a quick note to let everyone know that after weeks and grueling weeks of muddy coffee, diet coke and cat-naps under our desks, Metromix LA goes live today — anywhere from 2pm to 5pm depending. Check it out: www.losangeles.metromix.com.

The seven section site covers LA food-drink, nightlife, music, movies, tv and style — aimed at 20-somethings. In our very first “debut pages:” q&a with Klaxons keyboardist/vocalist James Righton; sneaker freakin’: LA streetwear; Michael Moore on America’s (ailing) health care system; a smattering of restaurant and bar/club reviews, plus a glove-compartment-guide to some of our favorite 24-hour restaurants in LA (paired with photo essay); Margaret Cho takes us on a tour of downtown’s Fashion District; Joshua Clay, Misha, and more art we love; our recurring (bad)advice column, Ask-a-Comic; the single best seat in Dodger’s Stadium (alie tried ‘em all); blogs, videos, events, sample sales. And more. Oh, and LA’s very best summer house party. Content updates daily, so check in regularly.

Now: sleep! Deb
