Winning Combination: Dumplings and Design

What do we love more than Dim Sum? Not much… But how about design and biking and Dim Sum? This Saturday LA arts incubator De Lab (Design East of La Brea) put together this genius combination, with a bike tour that left from LA’s Highland Park neighborhood and wound up in Chinatown. Highlights along the way included cool architecture studio Fung + Blatt, a scenic ride through historic Lincoln Heights; a tour of LOC’s ingenious Chun King Loft; and a look at Chinatown’s Fifth Floor Gallery, with its hot new furniture collection designed by local architects. Who knew Chinatown was so cool? The road ended at dim sum specialist Ocean Seafood, where the hungry bikers went to town on dumplings galore. A great photo tour of the trip is available here.

    After our wonderful time at Blue Velvet, I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it. Every so often, LA actually is cooler than NY.
