The First First of 2013 (Yee-haw!)

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Well, true believers, Bixby bounce was back with all it’s deep Knolls knowledge for another year this last first friday!  That’s right the art walk to end all art walks kicked off the new year with all the resplendent magic, business activation, art, and energy you’ve come to expect for the north long beach art walk which parades, gallops, strides, and sways up the atlantic corridor from 37th street to Clairborne hitting up every bakery, children’s music center, relaxation studio, coffee shop, and pizza parlor on the way!  As the immortal beats would say, “dig that art.”

In preparation for February’s Mardis Gras parade featuring the Gumbo Brothers, the ranger and his best pal Cinco conducted a mini-teaser parade at the Expo Furniture Warehouse to wet our appetites.  Mardis Gras King and Queen: John Royce and Kelly Johnson were crowned.  Thrill to their smiling mugs at the top of the page!

And what art walk would be complete without a petting zoo we might ask?  Get a handful of goats next month at the It’s a Grind parking lot!

Grab a good book and wait ’til 2/1/13 my friends when again the streets will be ablaze with magic!

The BKBIA Annual Members Meeting

Friday, February 19th, 2010

BIA Community Liason, John Royce and the Ranger

The purpose of the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association is to promote the interests of its professional, service and retail members, to enhance the common areas within the BIA area, to facilitate the exchange of business information and ideas, to promote the highest business and ethical standards, and to eat the most crispy fried mini-wings it possibly can.  Or so appeared to be the case last night at the annual meeting for residents and members of the BKBIA.  The ranger was there of course, bumping elbows with everyone from Smolarcorp’s own Ryan Smolar to Uptown Animal Hospital’s Dr. Katie Marrie.  The Anne Walsh band played an assortment of danceable diddies, The Petroleum Club staff served some mighty fine sasparilla, and a fine time was had by all.

Here are a few of the fun ventures in store for the future of Bixby Knolls, as laid out by Executive Director and Tattoo leg guru, Blair Cohn:

The Signal Hill Petroleum Lot 33 is set to be beautified by Boy Scout Scott Eastman!

Cal Trans approved the installation of two freeway signs declaring, “Bixby Knolls Next Two Exits”!

There is talk of adding a community garden to the 3300 block of Atlantic!

And last but not least, Blair and his bro want to have a tubular 80′s dance party!

Bodacious Blair in the tubular 80's!
