Paint and Graffiti store paints the town red in Echo Park

By Graffiti Artists for Graffiti Artists.



The Montana Store comes to Echo Park, with everything from paint to pencils.Montana Cans is a designer spray-paint brand from Germany. It does sound cool.


But I know from attending a few Echo Park Chamber of Commerce meetings illegal graffiti is not cool.

Masa of Echo Park makes you come back for more

The first thing the waitresses at Masa tell you is that they are famous for the cornmeal crust, Chicago-style deep dish pizza.

Then they let you know that you should order ahead because it takes 45 minutes to prepare.

So that almost guarantees you'll be back for more.

But on that first visit whatever you do, get the banana and chocolate bread pudding. A delicacy and enough for two.
