    Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and Fish.

Danny created recipes featured in his shop and ran the store until his passing in January of 2013. In December 2013, Danny’s Donuts was ranked in a…

  • Friday's Five: Five California Labor Code provisions employees cannot waive

    Anthony Zaller
