What LA is tweeting about today:

Hope you took the recent news of lower unemployment with a grain of salt. New jobless claims rise unexpectedly, reports the LA Times. [@LATimes]

And to top it off, Angelenos have it worse than other cities. According to, L.A.'s ratio of online job listings to numbers of jobless makes it one of the toughest cities in which to be unemployed. [@indeed]

On a brighter note, you can now enter a contest on Dine LA where the grand prize is... a job! The lucky winner can be Maitre D’ for one night at Wilshire Restaurant and get a free meal to top it off. [@DineLA]

Is there really such a thing as too many mobile food truck options? LAPD thinks yes and are starting to patrol "Food Truck Row" on Wilshire. [@LAist]

Only three more weeks until you can get your deep-fried Oreos. Don't forget your Lipitor I.V. [@lacountyfair]
