Cirque Berzerk named recipient of “Downtowner of Distinction” award by Los Angeles Downtown News



WOOT!

Apparently the alpha-dog Downtowner is Distinguished on Feb 22 in a knock down drag out neighborhood 3-3 streetball game, with Cirque Berzerk drawing a tough early round with the newly minted LAPD while Chabad Temple faces down the full wait staff of the Rivera Restaurant at home in South Park.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – The year 2009 may have been tough for many, but Downtown saw dozens of projects debut.

That led to the naming of 13 recipients of Los Angeles Downtown News’ annual Downtowners of Distinction awards. Winners are chosen by district and are selected for projects that have an impact on the entire neighborhood. The winners are: the High School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Bunker Hill; the Skid Row 3-on-3 Streetball League in Central City East; Cirque Berzerk in Chinatown; the 

Police Administrative Building in the Civic Center; the ESPN Headquarters and Regal Cinemas Stadium 14 (a tie) in the Figueroa Corridor; Pershing Square’s Programming in the Financial District; the Rowan Lofts in the Historic Core; the Haas Building and its Chabad of Downtown temple in the Jewelry District; Sakura Crossing in Little Tokyo; Rivera Restaurant in South Park; and the Gold Line Eastside Extension in Union Station/El Pueblo. (Not every Downtown district receives an award every year.) One of those winners will be announced as Project of the Year in the Feb. 22 issue of Downtown News.
