RESTAURANT REVIEW: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Redondo

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Redondo

Once a term gets embedded in language, it’s pretty hard to dynamite it out. A case in point – we still speak of dialing a phone call, even though the last rotary phones were manufactured in 1985. Children who are shown a phone with an actual dial have no idea what to do with it […]

Huntington-ed Dear ER: Don’t fall for this propaganda from the city, builders and the chamber (“Mixed feelings on development in Redondo Beach,” ER 10/29/2015). They fooled the public into approving high density in Huntington Beach by lying that it was a “Commercial Revitalization” and started building 100-unit per acre buildings. The citizens rose up last […]

Dickie’s: Best American BBQ

Dickie’s: Best American BBQ

The stainless steel cabinets behind Dickie’s counter don’t look much like a traditional smoker, but it sure works like one, turning out tender brisket, ribs, chicken, and sausages with hickory flavor infused into the meat.

American Barbecue: Lucille’s Smokehouse

The favorite restaurant for Southern barbecue among readers of this coast-oriented publication is miles inland.

A welcome visit from ZuhG [MUSIC PREVIEW]

It’s a fascinating accomplishment when a band from elsewhere, outside Los Angeles county, is able to secure a following here in the South Bay. I’m not talking about acts like Toots and The Maytals, Dickey Betts, or Tab Benoit, who enjoy throngs of predetermined fans flocking to their tour buses. I’m talking about everyday bands, […]
