Build-Your-Own Pizza Shops Hosts October 9 Grand Opening to Benefit LA Animal Services

Los Angeles, CA (Sept 29, 2014) – PizzaRev continues to feed LA’s demand for better, faster pizza with its newest location in Koreatown, located at 3150 Wilshire Blvd. The growing build-your-own pizza shop will host a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event at the new location’s Grand Opening, October 9, where guests are invited to “pay-what-they-want” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza. An $8 contribution is suggested and will benefit LA Animal Services North Central shelter.

“We’re pumped to join the vibrant K-town community and partner with LA Animal Services to support our local homeless and abandoned pets,” said Nicholas Eckerman, founder and COO of PizzaRev. “We’ve already received a tremendous response from area residents who are eager for our doors to open.”

PizzaRev – Koreatown will also host a “Social Media Fan Appreciation Night” on Sunday night from 5 – 10 p.m. on October 12. Anyone who “Likes” or “Follows” PizzaRev on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter and shows their like/follow status via phone or print-out at the register will receive a FREE PIZZA.

PizzaRev features a distinctive “Craft Your Own” pizza assembly process and its “Roman-style” thin & crispy pizza that has won a loyal following in the LA area. It starts with the crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic marinara, a creamy white alfredo, and a spicy-sweet BBQ. Finally, each personally-sized masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30+ fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage, Kalamata olives, and fresh-picked basil and arugula.  Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, costs just $7.99.

Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone hearth oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. With literally hundreds of millions of combinations to create, PizzaRev keeps guests coming back eager to try the latest creation they crave.

This 12-14 September, over 4,000 developers will unite at once in 43+ cities (with many more taking part online!) to address some of the biggest issues and challenges facing humanity today.

  • build strong and resilient communities
  • radically change how we produce, distribute and use energy
  • enhance our ability to respond to extreme weather events as well as long-term climate trends
  • and much more!

This is an amazing opportunity to work with those at the forefront of science, technology and action on all these areas and more – including Fauna & Flora International, 350.org,WeForest, Friends of the Earth, Save the Children, the Campaign against Climate ChangeAvaazJustGiving, government departments worldwide, and many others.

The time to fix the climate and what we’re doing to it is now. The time for moving towards a low-carbon future is now. The time to wake up and change the direction humanity is going in is now!

5 Questions with Jose Marquez director of ISA on Chiller tonight

Before you watch the premier of ISA on Chiller tonight learn about the director Jose Marquez.

1. What inspired the story?

It was a few things coming together. For over a decade, I’d wanted to respond, however humbly, to the movie “The Matrix,” which, like so many others, I found completely exhilarating. But the movie also left me wondering what it is that makes humans valuable – that is, other than the small amount of electricity we produce. I’d also spent a few years watching many people – some in good faith, some not – arguing about immigration. Seldom do people talk about larger, structural issues like international capital flows. Finally, when I first started toying with a high school story, a friend of mine left a poster on my desk in support of the DREAM act. It’s such a powerful metaphor. So that’s how it all came together, mostly.

2. What attracted you to the science fiction genre?

I’ve always been a fan. I was born during the Cold War in a country that is still, in many ways, stuck in the Cold War. When I was a very little boy, my uncle, who lived in the U.S., visited us and brought me a Superman belt that had various scenes from the 1930s comic painted on the belt. It was my favorite thing for quite a long time. Like that comic, there’s something very blatantly political about science fiction, about a fantasy that wants to be of the current moment, the moment that is emerging, rather than a historical story.

3. What director inspired you to pursue the field?

Many! John Carpenter, Todd Haynes, John Waters, Mary Harron and Neil Jordan. More recently, I think the world of Matteo Garrone, Jonathan Glazer, Andrea Arnold, Nadine Labaki. Too many.

4. What stories do you want to tell as a director/writer?

Fun ones? Less glib answer: I would love to make emotionally powerful movies that inspire audiences to talk and think about hard questions.

Check out the trailer: http://bit.ly/isatrailer

Watch it ISA live with popcorn and the lights off!!!

Hot Sauce Wars are heating up

The business of hot sauce is heating up with Tabasco working on a challenge to the world wide king the original Sriracha Sauce created in SoCal.  Sriracha hot sauce made by Huy Fong Foods has about 60 million dollars in sales (estimated) and for that amount of money it’s no surprise that big food business is looking to usurp the king.  The first major player to put their on spin on the hot sauced loved by foodies is the original king of hot Tabasco.  They are currently working on perfecting their recipe to have it join them on the shelves at a store near you in 2015.  Rumor has it they are tinkering with the flavor to stay true to their own vingerary tang but that will harmonize with the Thailand inspired hot sauce style.  It should be difficult to get the recipe to fit with their taste guide but once completed it might spell serious issues for this upstart.  It’s difficult to compete with a company tha
t has the shelf space that Tabasco has not only in the US but worldwide.  Currently the Sriracha hot sauce unique taste has gotten them free advertising with Lay & Kettle (and others) potato chips, go to condiment for restaurants and in various cook book recipes.  Once Tabasco releases their sauce will people reach for a familiar brand or the originator?

I think it’s a matter of taste and some people have never loved vinegar with their hot sauce and others do.  The distinct logo, color, bottle and cost will have me reaching for Sriracha.  What will you reach for in the Thai Hot Sauce Wars?

TABASCO Sriracha SauceTABASCO® Premium Sriracha Sauce is a masterful blend of spicy, sweet and savory flavors, that is authentic to South East Asian cuisine. It is the perfect addition to stir fry, noodles and soups, or to any recipe that calls for the delicious combination of sweet chili and garlic. Gluten, preservative, and fat free, TABASCO® Premium Sriracha Sauce is made of only the highest quality ingredients to create an authentic Thai chili sauce from the Brand who created pepper sauce in 1868. 15 oz. plastic bottle.

Sleepy Hollow is the SHOW!! What a great panel with the chemistry of the cast sparkling like the sky at midnight!

Day One

This year marked the first time that I’ve attended PaleyFest. It’s an annual festival bringing together the creators and stars of current and past tv shows and to interact with their community of fans.

My first panel was the breakout hit of the 2013/2014 season – Sleepy Hollow. The main cast: Nicole Behaire, Tom Mison, Orlando Jones, John Cho, Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Len Wiseman, Heather Kadin. The panel was moderated by Sandra Gonzalez.

The producers were tight lipped and didn’t give away to many hints for the upcoming season. The only tidbits dropped were that the we be a new boss in charge of the station. Frank Irving will be facing trials and tribulations and the Horseman of War will be getting his own henchman!

The highlight of the panel was the sparkling chemistry between the cast. Nicole Beharie was the first person attached to the show…
