The #MarchForOurLivesLA event has reached #GrandPark. #LAPD officers are helping facilitate free speech and to provide a safe and secure environment for participants and the surrounding community. No incidents to report at this time. Thank you, Angelenos. 👍

#LAPD ofcrs will be out on the streets today helping facilitate a peaceful & civil #MarchForOurLivesLA event. We will work with everyone exercising their 1st Amendment Rights while maintaining public safety in our City of Angels. Media Staging is located @ Temple Ave & Spring St.

There is a #MarchForOurLives taking place in #DTLA this #SaturdayMorning, scheduled to start at 9 a.m. The march is planned to start at 6th and Spring and travel along both Spring and Broadway toward City Hall and Grand Park. Expect street closures and traffic delays.

Big thanks to the listener who corrected me: In Sacramento, the J Street exit on both directions of I-5 are closed. You can still drive through I-5, you just can't exit for J Street from either side. Sorry for the confusion.


Due to today's protest, SacRT buses are unable to get into the Sac Valley light rail station. Passengers waiting at Sac Valley should walk to the bus stops on 4th and J or 6th and J to make their connection. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Today's protest in downtown Sacramento is causing rolling street closures in the area. This is having an impact on transit service as buses are being forced to detour due to temporary street closures. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Would you like to be responsible for everything that happens at an #LAPD Patrol Division during a 12-hour shift? That's the roll of a Watch Commander and we bring you a behind the scenes look!

#LAPD pursuit has entered the underground parking structure of the Fox Hills Mall in Culver City. Please avoid the area as the incident is still fluid.

[email protected] units are in pursuit of a vehicle southbound 405 freeway from the 101. Please use caution in the area

Traffic Alert: A protest is planned today, 3/23 on Capitol Mall. Scheduled to begin noon at Tower Bridge then head east to the West Steps of the Capitol via Capitol Mall. Traffic delays are expected 12-1 pm. Consider alternative routes and/or provide additional commute time.

I enjoyed the original concept better where the Hadrosaur knocked the boat off course instead of the blocked path.

That shouldn’t be game over: you need to go down the slide, get your pic taken, and get drenched

David Gp memories 😅 jurassic

If only the raptors worked that well on the ride

Care for a refreshing Butterbeer? ...

Care for a refreshing Butterbeer?


Comment on Facebook

Ill be trying one in ohhhh a month

Quick question. Does the Butterbeer have alcohol in it or is it family-friendly?

My favorite one is the hot Butterbeer!!! 😛 I was there Saturday, and couldn’t decide from hot Butterbeer or a beer lol so I got both! 😂😂

It's pretty much the only reason I go. :P I wish the Hot Butterbeer was served all year long!

It's not refreshing at all, it's gross

Nah, the Duff was pretty good though

during Christmas in the Wizarding world ❤️

Love the butterbeer. I'm developing my alcoholic version for marketing soon.

The Frozen Butterbeer is so good. I love it a lot, I can use one right now.

I had a duff beer was a good pint needed to be at 13 dollar a pop 😂😂😂

Samuel Weidenhofer wanna be back there. The frozen butterbeer was delicious :)

Jennifer Darling Hadaway Connie Colvin Shay Mire Herndon can’t wait we all have to get together sometime during this trip and have one together ♥️

I have been drinking butter and coconut oil in my morning coffee. A couple whirls in the bullet and it is awesome. It will keep you going all morning. Just not a beer drinker unless your talking about those Rickers Rattlers.

I’ll try and bring some cups back Fiona!

Had one last Tuesday, aling with frozen butterbeer!

Justin Scaggs we gonna buy Ana Ruiz one and then listen to her talk about hating cream soda afterwards 😳😳😳😳


I travel to LA in June, but unfortunatelly I can't visit here again :( I could not save enough money for the ticket.

The butterbeer at the Making of Harry Potter in London trumps this one!

Its my absolute favorite! Im excited to come back in May for another butterbeer

Yes please!! I think we had four through out the day while we were there , lol. All shared of course !!;) we liked it cold right out of the tap!

Wonder what it tastes like Christopher Garcia butterbeer

We were there last week. Loved the Butterbeer!

Universal Studios Hollywood - We have the local pass but originally only bought it for my older daughter and myself, wanted to let my youngest daughter get taller but now we missed out on the local pass, as it's been discontinued. Are you going to have something similar for the last nine months of the year...? I saw an article about the Silver pass, but will need to research it.

Denny MacHarg We need to go back! I need a butterbeer!! 😂

Mira Alberto Flores de todo tenemos foto creo ya es nuestro segundo hogar jejejee 😍

Well a radio in my body said I was a billionair but I have not seen it in a bank thing. Anyways the previous post was just an idea.

sheers to the house of the great ones , always and forever.

I enjoy the video very much. It looks so amazing. I'm more towards the Gryffindor house, not a Slytherin fan at all.

Lisa Rodriguez I know you are Gryffindor, but still looks awesome.

Anyone who says they belong in Gryffindor, clearly belongs in Slytherin
