    Why has there been little or no coverage of the quarterly “Walkabouts” in Hollywood? The summer one coincided with Hollywood Burger Bar’s 60th Anniversary Celebration, & the recent October one was all Halloween -related, yet I saw no coverage of either one in the Star. Being the former owner of HBB, I know that you used to cover Booster & neighborhood events much more fully.
