La Azteca and burrito 600

A company founded on tortillas and chili relleno burritos

Villa Juan knew nothing about making tortillas. Or burritos. Or run a business. He was a truck driver.

But it didn’t stop Juan and his wife Candy of the purchase La Azteca Tortilleria in Eastern LA over a decade ago.

Juan continued his job as a truck driver for the first five years because they didn’t have a lot of business. What they had was a lot of obstacles including fierce competition and a very outdated restaurant in need of a major renovation.

“Fue difícil al principio,” Juan said. “It was hard at first.”

But years of hard work have paid off. Loyal customers walk miles for flour tortillas and chili relleno burritos from La Azteca. The couple turned down offers to buy the business because it prospered. And recently, La Azteca was added to the Michelin California Bib Gourmand guide, which features more casual and less expensive restaurants.

LAUSD is looking for a new superintendent for the 2022-2023 school year after former District Chief Austin Beutner (pictured left) failed to renew his contract in June.

Relationships Matter Most When It Comes To The Next LAUSD Superintendent

Choosing a new LAUSD Superintendent is no easy task. With applications expected on November 5 and nearly 30,000 parent and community surveys submitted to date, LAUSD’s Board of Directors has a lot to consider.

Future superintendents should be excited to come to LA. This city is not only home to America’s second largest public school district, but also a thriving ecosystem of public, nonprofit, and philanthropic educational institutions. With new rounds of education funding on the horizon, this is a chance to be part of an unprecedented transformational journey.

Curtain up on new shows

The theaters are again live and in person. In East Hollywood, the fountain theater presents the Los Angeles premier of “The Children,” a Tony-nominated thriller about two retired nuclear engineers and the world we must leave to our children. The show kicked off on Wednesday and is scheduled to run through January 23.

meanwhile at Los Feliz, the Skylight Theater on Vermont Avenue hosts the world premiere of “A Hit Dog Will Holler,” in which a social media influencer and activist help each other survive, “as American racism manifests in physical form,” promotional material says . The performances start on Saturday November 6 and until December 12.
