"Yo!" A black man in a filthy, yellow, collared shirt lies sprawled out in the middle of the Sixth Street sidewalk, out cold. No more than four inches from his face is a Business Improvement District officer, who shouts again: "Yo!" "Is he breathing?" asks a woman passing by, worried...
President Obama came to town again to rake in some funds and clog some traffic. The only view of his visit you probably saw were the brake lights of the car ahead of you in the traffic jam he caused, but here's what was really going on. All photos by Ted Soqui.
On Saturday, spectators of all ages were out in multitudes on a beautiful summer night in Glendale to celebrate the 21st annual Cruise Night. Brand Boulevard, one of the main streets through downtown Glendale, was closed to traffic and lined with over 250 classic, pre-1979 cars. There was plenty of food to be had and many of the businesses on Brand stayed open late for the festivities The evening ended with fireworks and a 50th anniversary concert from The Kingsmen, who performed their ultimate party hit, "Louie, Louie."

Storytelling has experienced something of a renaissance in the past decade or so. Whether on This American Life, through StoryCorps or in any given issue of Grit, people love to hear other people wax poetic, rhapsodic or orgasmic about their lives. Tonight's Moth GrandSLAM — not to be confused with a poetry slam, thankfully — features the winners of the past 10 Moth StorySLAMS. Founded in 1997 by poet and writer George Dawes Green, the Moth is as much a chance to see seasoned storytellers hold forth as it is to hear impromptu, ad hoc story honed to its essence. "True Stories Told Live" is the watchword of the Moth, but neither scripts nor cheat sheets will be used by the storytellers gathered tonight as they open a window on a world of excitement. It's difficult to find a greater adventure than public speaking, really — or, as it's more popularly known, a fate worse than death.

If there is one thing Bob Beckel and the folks over at Fox News have helped everyone to learn in the last few weeks, it's that the phrase "Chinaman" shouldn't be tossed around too freely. Aside from millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski, in fact, it's hard to believe anybody would use that term anymore. But there it is in the title of Eric Liu's newest book. A former Bill Clinton speechwriter and essayist (The Accidental Asian), Liu is well aware of the sticky power of the term. A Chinaman's Chance: One Family's Journey and the Chinese-American Dream tackles the subject of ever-evolving Asian identity in America and China's parallel rise as a global powerhouse. Along with Zócalo Public Square executive director Gregory Rodriguez, Liu will be discussing the challenges of building an identity and the cloud of fear and ignorance that can hammer away at the process. By the end of their talk, we imagine everyone will know that "Chinaman" is not the preferred nomenclature. Los Angeles Central Library, 630 W. Fifth St., dwntwn.; Wed., July 30, 7:15 p.m.; free.

The setup certainly sounds like someone went down a certain rabbit hole or nibbled the wrong mushroom: Combine belly dance with street dance to retell the story of Alice in Wonderland. Yet mixing Middle Eastern dance with contemporary dance forms is exactly what the 20-member Bellydance Evolution and choreographer Jillina Carlano are all about. The 5-year-old troupe combines contemporary dance, acrobatics, street dance, theatrical hip-hop and tribal dance to present narrative stories. Here they take on the Lewis Carroll classic with an original score by Paul Dinletir and Ozzy Ashkenazi's live beats. After all, what could be more appropriate than a hip-hop white rabbit?

In its 53 years of existence, has the International Surf Festival ever been held in a "state of emergency"? We're not sure, but after a swimmer was attacked by a great white shark on Fourth of July weekend (those sharks have such a Hollywood sense of timing), the city of Manhattan Beach ignited a debate about water safety by declaring such a state, which persists to this day. Ultimately, the idea is to regulate fishing on the pier — the powers-that-be are convinced that the problem is less that Jaws is out there picking off victims and more that, by baiting sharks into the shallow waters, fishermen are endangering swimmers. But no matter what happens at City Hall, we're certain local anglers will be on their best behavior during this highly regarded summer tradition. As part of the weekend festival, hundreds of surfers (and body surfers) will compete Saturday, riding everything from short boards to paddle boards along the picturesque South Bay shores. Watch contestants catch a few waves — or come back Sunday at 7:30 a.m. for a sand castle design contest. Manhattan Beach Pier, 2 Manhattan Beach Blvd., Manhattan Beach; also at Hermosa Beach Pier, Pier Avenue, Hermosa Beach; Sat., Aug. 2, 6:45 a.m.; Sun., Aug 3, 7:30 a.m.; free. surffestival.org.More

Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.

The July Kamikaze Exhibits at downtown studio gallery PØST are a staple of the summer season for art lovers attracted to places and practices that are still somewhat off the beaten path. Although the neighborhood around this industrial side-alley venue has seen exponential changes as the Arts District moniker attracted fancier denizens, its doggedly independent character has remained intact — and another full month of its now-infamous, artist-curated, one-night shows is in the offing. On 31 consecutive nights, the space hosts 31 different solo or group shows organized by artists who are given free rein to be as minimal or ambitious as they want to be, as long as they can manage to install, open and de-install in the course of a single day. The results are every bit as eclectic and insane as that sounds. While the curators aren't showing their own work, their organizing efforts surely provide insight into their creative practices. The diverse crew of artists in charge includes installation/performance artists JEFF&GORDON (July 1), painter Jay Erker (July 8), sculptor and installation artist Margaret Honda (July 11), painter and video artist Annie Wharton (July 14), illustrator and collagist Sarajo Frieden (July 16), sculptor Eric Johnson (July 20) and cosmic interdisciplinary conceptualist Dani Tull (July 28). Don't think about it, just do it. PØST, 1904 E. Seventh Place, dwntwn.; receptions nightly, Tue., July 1-Thu., July 31, 7-9 p.m.; free. (213) 488-1280, postlosangeles.org.More
L.A. Times critic Christopher Knight just scolded MOCA for lending a massive, multicolored, shaped painting by iconic Frank Stella to Honor Fraser Gallery in Culver City, for its historical show on color field painting. He was right that the museum wasn't necessarily doing its part as a steward, making choices that would keep the painting as secure as possible. But the gallery is behaving entirely like a gallery, angling to get the best objects with the most cachet on its walls and keeping them there for just a fleeting moment. The Stella painting, called Ctesiphon I and made up of lots of linked half circles, looks different on walls that so often feature brand new, unmarred work than it looks in the museum space. It's a little raggedy but still majestic. 2622 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City; through Aug. 2. (310) 837-0191, honorfraser.com.More

The past decade has seen a boom in the number of marijuana dispensaries, with estimates placing the number within L.A. city limits at over 1,000. A recently approved ban by the city council could mean the end of marijuana dispensaries, though medical marijuana activists are fighting back.
