Los Angeles mag goes 'Eastside'

Los Angeles magazine — which until lately eschewed the terms Westside and Eastside — has expanded the definition of the latter beyond even the Times' recent make-it-up-as-you-go style ethic. In the February issue, a Los Angeles item observes that Hennessey + Ingalls, the Santa Monica design and architecture bookstore, has "opened an Eastside outpost." Cool, a third store for residents of Northeast LA or Boyle Heights? Nope — it's just the Cahuenga Boulevard store that Adrienne Crew posted about in November. Apparently, Hollywood is now the magazine's Eastside.
