'GREETINGS FROM EASTSIDE': Over Labor Day Weekend, an secret cell of Eastside bloggers held a BBQ meet-and-greet that included the burning of an effigy. On the grill, next to what appears to be husks of ceremonial corn, a stack of Maphawk's 2008-2009 "map and guide to the eastside" are on fire while eastside operatives offer greetings to the publishers.
The guide redefines the eastside as Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Downtown, Chinatown and West Hollywood. Not included on the map, that list goods and services, are the neighborhoods of Lincoln Heights, Boyle Heights, and East Los Angeles. In fact, the furthest point east is Downtown item 466; a yoga studio that is located on the west side of the Los Angeles River.
