Our peeps at Curbed seem to think that the new Ma Dang the Courtyard could kick the Bev Center to the curb, in terms of total mall experience. The center opened last week, the eventual home to 40 retail stores (currently 65% leased). While there's no Bloomie's, and we doubt Ma Dang will have a Hunky Santa at the holidays, it does boast an endearing wackiness, a three-screen cinema that will show both English and Korean films, and the convenience of being on the Red Line. Dang, ma! [Curbed LA]
