THE GET DOWN
Jeffrey Deitch, the former director of MOCA in LA who departed in 2013, has made a return to LA in a BIG way!
Taking a 13,000 sq. ft. gallery space in the up and coming Hollywood Arts district (aka the area east of La Brea, just SOUTH of SMBLVD), Jeffrey Deitch is fully equipped to showcase museum scale art exhibitions.
The gallery’s first exhibit has opened, showing the works of artist and activist AI WEIWEI. 6000 salvaged wooden stools from the MING and QING dynasty sit on display, surrounded by a dozen zodiac sculptures made from LEGOS!
If you are toting the tots to check out this amazing work, they must be old enough to exercise inside voices and museum hands. This gallery is one big open space and boundaries are not clearly marked.
If your tot happens to be having an off day, then not to worry. Take a walk down Orange Drive and check out all of the cool street art going on, just north of the gallery space.
Walk slow, and take it all in because in just a couple years from now, this entire area will be transformed. The Jeffrey Deitch gallery is only the tip of the iceberg and also a good indicator of what’s to come.
Tip: Check the Jeffrey Deitch gallery website before visiting as the installations change often and the gallery could be closed.

For those with little
runners & screamers:
Here, you can forget the fact that it’s your rambunctious child that’s screaming and STILL enjoy most of your meal.
Not promoted, but you should take the chance:
If your toddler is at the stage when an iPad or some other colorful distraction can be used for an un-interrupted 20 minutes, then go for it.
Uh-uh, NO WAY, don’t even think about it!:
I don’t care how cute your toddler is. Pop your head in… turn around… walk away. PERIOD.
No contained area:
A place you cannot leave your toddler alone, not even for a second.
Enclosed, but space is tight:
If YOU can’t fit between the tables then you know you couldn’t catch your toddler if they tried – this isn’t Norm’s.
