EDITOR'S LETTER

 

Woohoo!
  Brits in LA has reached 10,000 members (and then some)!
Thank you to everyone who has been so instrumental in helping our community grow. Craig and I are very proud of the group and all of you. 
If you are still on the waitlist please drop us a line here and we will process your request as quickly as we can. 

 

Looking at our Facebook feed anyone would think you were all obsessed with food! Our most popular posts this week have been “Where Are the Best Places to Get Your Fish & Chips in LA?’ , ’14 Posh Places for Afternoon Tea in Los Angeles’ and ’11 Charts About Tea That British People Will Understand Instantly’

I want to know where to get the best Liver & Bacon in LA -

I am a little tired of Fish & Chips being the highlight of every British menu - the only place I know that serves a decent plate of L & B is one of Hollywoods’ oldest restaurants,  Musso & Frank (6667 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028) so please send me your recommendations to eileen@britsin.la and I will gladly check them out.

Foodie fans must come and join us for our weekly Breakfast Club at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood - they honestly do serve one of the best Full English Breakfasts in town - although I am on the fence with their tea making skills, however their coffee is excellent! Everyone is welcome and we really do have people from all walks of life and all ages - it is a great way to make new friends without all the fuss of an evening event.

Sandra Cowley shared a great photo of our beloved Mayor of Breakfast Bernard Skibben with one of our younger members - enjoying the latest issue of the British Weekly!

If evening events are more your thing we have our bi-monthly Pub Quiz at the Pikey with the dynamic duo Rob Pait & Marina Paganucci on Tuesday April 26th - full details can be found on our Facebook page. If you need a team to join get there for 7.40pm.
Not all questions are British based; red blooded American Mr Pait will make sure of that! The Pikey are actually listed as one of the best places to get Fish & Chips in LA too, so come hungry!  

Britweek has just kicked off - appropriately on St George's Day, and runs  through until May 8th;  lots of flying of flags all over SoCal - make sure to visit britweek.org for their full calendar of events. I am really looking forward to popping in to  the Mr Musichead British Invasion Exhibition on April 26th ( conveniently located opposite our Pub Quiz which falls on the same night),

Tickets are free but make sure to RSVP asap as it is bound to sell out - info found on the Britweek site. 

Lots of other amazing British themed events from Shakespeare to Street Art - if you are participating and have an event you want to promote to our British community drop us a line at britsinla@gmail.com . 

We also want to invite you to participate in our weekly Meet a Member feature - you don’t have to be British or have a glamorous job, we want to share your story with our members. If you are up for it or would like to nominate someone else contact us at britsinla@gmail.com for more details.

Look forward to hearing from you, especially those of you with Liver & Bacon recommendations!

Don't forget it is Mothers Day here in the USA on May 8th!

Cheers! 

Eileen

Yorkshire Square Brewery To Open Late-Summer

Yorkshire Square Brewery has long been a dream for Gary Croft and his family. Born and bred in Leeds and now a resident of the South Bay, Gary was inspired by his roots to open a brewery specializing in the cask-conditioned, hand-pulled ales readily found in the north of England. Unlike other area breweries, Yorkshire Square Brewery will have a full kitchen, serving up classic pub food with a modern Californian twist. With this combination of quality beer and delicious cuisine coupled with a stylish, welcoming space, Yorkshire Square Brewery is bound to become a destination for ex-pats looking for a bit of home as well as beer enthusiasts all over Los Angeles.

Yorkshire Square Brewery will be open for business by late summer and the Crofts hope to see members of Brits in LA at the brewery for a pint -- cheers! To stay current on all events leading up to the opening, please like the Yorkshire Square Brewery Facebook page at

PASSPORT ADVICE

Make sure your passport is not about to expire before you book travel. Visit our blog for details on how to renew your passport.

One of the most common questions we get is 'Where can I get UK passport pictures done?'

Thanks to Brits in LA Member, Mario, we now have a pretty easy answer!
A simple (and very cheap!) solution to finding a UK size passport photo
  upload to a free website such as 
http://www.idphoto4you.com/, then order a print online at CVS, Costco  etc. Total cost, 32 cents!
Not comfortable with DIY?
Then we recommend
Photo Center on Beverly Boulevard @ Fairfax

We have new info for applying for a passport for your US born kids
