Blogdowntown Recommends 'Secrets of Historic Downtown LA' Tours This Saturday and Sunday

 If you want to get to know the story of Downtown's development, you're not going to hear it from a much more colorful character than Brady Westwater. He's had some sort of a hand in most deals that had come through the Historic Core over the last decade, and probably done them all while wearing his trademark cowboy hat and wrestling t-shirts.
This Saturday, Westwater partners with The Last Bookstore to kick off a series of tours with "Historic Downtown 101." He promises "an overview of the multiple histories of the streets of Broadway, Spring and Main" that will offer a view of both new and old history of Downtown.
Attendance is $15, proceeds from which will go to "the revitalization and the study of the history of the neighborhood." To reserve a spot, call Westwater at 213-804-8396.

Tours are this Saturday June 25th from 11 AM - 1:30 PM and Sunday, June 26th, from Noon to 2:30 PM and the Saturday tour will include the interior of the Palace Theater.
