Echo Park Bar Owners Aim to Give Dodger Fans Some Extra Joy

In addition to working as an associate editor and reporter for KPCC, Hayley Fox is also these days doing PR for a certain neighborhood bar scheduled to re-open in Echo Park April 1. Just days after she married Joaquin Reyna-Donaldson last fall, he and business partner Don Andes took ownership of Little Joy, located at 1477 Sunset Blvd.. The new proprietors are now furiously completing a full renovation in time for Dodgers Opening Day.

“It was originally a garage,” Fox tells FishbowlLA. “Then it became a pharmacy, and because of that, Joaquin and Don have found all this crazy pharmaceutical stuff, like cool old beakers. Since the 1960s, it has been a bar.”

When we first heard about Pierce’s KPCC layoff, it was as much of a surprise to us as his 2011 exit from the LA Times. FishbowlLA contacted Pierce and he was kind enough to give us the following statement:

Yes, it’s true. I was relieved of my duties at KPCC recently. It was quite a shock as I thought I was providing an important and useful service to the Take Two show during the week and to the KPCC website on Saturdays.

But in the ultimate “it’s not you, it’s me” reasoning, I was told it was due to a budget shortfall, and not the quality of my work, that I was being shown the door.
