As a resident of Los Feliz Village, we were SUPER excited to see signs up life at the old Video Hut location. Come on, GYM! Come on, GIANT INDIE CLOTHING BOUTIQUE! But no, it's going to be some Organic Liaison (anyone else think that sounds a bit like a Casual Encounter?), a store that sells a Kirstie Alley-approved weight loss program. Tragic underuse of space. Oh well, it should bring some diversity to the neighborhood?and probably Scientologists, too. [Mondette, Wikipedia]
