SATURDAY night I walked down Vernon Boulevard around 9pm and found all of it’s dining and drinking establishments more packed than not – a big change from numerous other strolls I’ve taken along the same path in the past year. Maybe it was the nice weather, or maybe the fact that it was a weekend night, both of those would augment my belief that the hubbub was more due to outsiders venturing here than locals staying put. Either way with all the new openings1 and subsequent clustering, Vernon Boulevard seems to have achieved critical mass and become quite the hot spot. On weekends anyway. Studio 54 where are you?
