Happy Place Finds a New Happy Place

The late-fall pop-up closed due to a permit issue; now it is slated to return to LA Live's Event Deck in the spring.

How many happy places do you have?

You might count the coffeehouse down the road as one, seeing as how it makes your favorite lemon latte. Your couch might be another happy place for you, as well as your go-to hiking trail, the one you visit when you need to leave the woes of the day-to-day behind.

Happy places can be plentiful, and not singular, is the takeaway here, and if we needed more cause to believe in such a positive outlook, we can turn our sights to the Happy Place, the opened-just-before-Thanksgiving pop-up experience devoted to, well, happiness.

And, yes: There will now be, for the record, more than one Happy Place.

The Arts District destination was open for a few weeks in late November and December, during which time visitors snapped many photographs, including in that garden-tastic "super bloom room." But permit issues ensued, and Happy Place had to de-bloom and de-rainbow and de-birthday cake its location.

But there's a second Happy Place in the works, and it is due to open at a time of year which is pretty darn happy, thanks to the fact that lots of things are in bloom and the weather is perfectly warm but not too warm and summer is on the horizon.
