Smoking is done by most in an everyday basis. Whether it’s vape, marijuana, hookah, or plain cigarettes. Children and teenagers are easily influenced to smoke and the one’s who begin don’t know anything about the substance. Such as, the chemicals put in or the fatal diseases that it can cause.

Fortunately, L.A.C.E.R. is hosting meetings every Tuesday and Wednesday for the whole month of March speaking about the causes of smoking and how one can stop.

The program also teaches one how to distress, help solve everyday situations, and much more.

Anyone is invited, smoker or nonsmoker, to the program which is highly recommended to learn more about smoking. Snacks are usually provided and classes are after school in room 506 for an hour.

Breaking up with a partner is always hard but The Museum of Broken Relationships embraces unique artifacts left behind by former couples. Founded by John B. Quinn in 2016 the museum was brought over from Zagreb, Croatia to the city of dreams. Located just a block away from Hollywood and Highland this museum displays over 115 items that are supposed to take viewers on a deep emotional journey. While some of the exhibits may be sad many are humorous and entertaining and show how these people recuperated from their break-ups. Each object was personally donated from a contributor and each object tells an uncommon story. Anyone also has the chance to contribute to the museum by sending in their own object with the story of that item.

Tickets to the museum cost $18 for general admission but for students it is $15. The museum is open all week but hours differentiate on Thursdays, Fridays, and the weekend. Not only does the museum offer exhibits but it also has numerous events. One event coming up on Sunday March 12 is a Break It/ Make It where people can take out their emotions by smashing anything they want and then they can create something with the broken pieces. The museum also has a gift shop for people wanting to buy merchandise. So for an interesting and unique journey people should definitely check this museum out.

Earlier this month a new fast food restaurant opened up in Hollywood but they have more to offer than just burgers. Located on the corner of Hollywood and Western and near the Petco and CVS pharmacy Farmer Boys is a fresher take to fast food.

Open from Monday to Sunday from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. Farmer Boys prides themselves on their freshness boasting that nobody does it fresher than they do. Farmer Boys also has a variety of things on their menu to satisfy any customer who just doesn’t want a burger and fries.

First off on their menu is their award-winning burgers which has many delicious options. They have their classic, the Farmer’s Burger, which is like a typical burger but with double the patty, avocado, and bacon and they also have a couple of other options. There is the Big Cheese which is basically a typical cheeseburger and the Bacon Boy which has two patties with bacon and cheese. The Natural Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger which is exactly what it sounds like and the Natural which is a 1/3 pound burger with just cheese. Lastly they have the Bell Ringer, the Barn Burner which is for those spicy lovers which includes jalapenos and spicy farmer sauce, and finally the Market burger which is a veggie burger.

A customer could add many sides to their burger like harvest fries, crispy zucchini, or onion rings. If someone wanted a more health option they could order a salad, wrap, or sandwich instead.

Farmer Boys offers numerous salads to those people who do not want fast food. They have the farmer’s chopped Cobb salad, the Southwest Chicken Salad, Chicken BBQ Ranch Salad, and the char-boiled Chicken Salad.

They also have wraps of the same things if a person wanted one. If a customer wants a sandwich they have many options of that as well. Not also to mention that they have a full breakfast menu for those who go in for breakfast. Overall this is a great place to go to not just for a burger and fries.
