Thank you, OP.

Here's a list of wholesale suppliers to restaurants for meat, poultry, fish, produce and pantry items. Pretty steep minimum purchase if you want it delivered though.

Great, California and specifically Los Angeles continue to show the correct way to deal with this crisis. Thank you very much!!

The daily briefings are insufferable. I can't even watch as they go on and on and on and on and on. I have to wait until he is over and get the 2 minute re-cap from the news. This is 101 for giving presentations, be relevant and keep it short.

Gracetti totally missed the mark on this (as well as lots of other things while being mayor) and unfortunately, his updates are just disregarded as no one can sit through them

Garcetti and Newsom are hot hot hot! And they're doing a good job. But they're both annoying.

r5 I completely disagree. I thoroughly enjoy Eric Garcetti's daily briefings. In fact, I set my DVR to record so I can watch them. I like his folksy, fatherly way of assuring that he's looking out for us, trying to protect us. I like hearing the details of his plans, his reasoning for doing certain things. It makes me feel included and cared about, something that is desperately needed in this scary, crazy time. I really appreciate Garcetti doing this since we're not getting reassurances our of our national leaders in Washington DC.

And the great thing is, if Garcetti's daily briefings aren't your cup of tea, you don't have to watch. That's why the news is there to give you a 2 minute recap.

Goddammit, someone tore through 2 of my packages, took the contents and left the packaging (my apartment in at the front of the building, and they left the packages on the side). I hope you like the dark toned sunscreen and earrings you asshole.

live in LA and had no idea there were daily briefings! I can get local channels but literally never switch over to the setting where I can watch live TV. All streaming stuff from my phone to TV

Apparently LA has been singled out TWICE today for criticism from the asshole-in-chief.

Garcetti is way to cautious with this lockdown, it's time to get with the program and start opening things up! TV shows and movies need to be allowed to film again. The Dodgers need to be allowed to start playing and same goes for the Rams and Chargers this fall!

I'm in DTLA and it's becoming more of a shithole. I don't even like to take the dog out after dark. Our little neighborhood has had its problems but was starting to feel safer until this hit. Skid Row has basically moved all the way up to Broadway and drug dealers and users just openly do whatever they want. Prisons and mental hospitals are letting people out early due to COVID (LA Times reports 3500 released early as of March 30)and most of them end up down here. It's sad but also dangerous. We've been taking drives on Mondays just to get some air, the PCH one day, and Pasadena the next week. I just wanna keep driving-DTLA is disgusting.
