On the Radar: More booze for Californians, music tonight and metro safety

Booze conosuers are putting forth their best efforts to get Gov. Jerry Brown to sign bill into law that would overturn a ban on serving cocktails made with infused alcohol in the state, Laist.com reported.

For almost the past 100 years it has been illegal for bars to serve a drink made with spirits infused with other flavors, including herbs or vegetables, when the infusion is not done prior to the bottling process.

Music with a local flare

The Glendale Latino Assn. teams up with Glendale Arts to present “An Evening of Bossa Nova Music on Brand” at 8 p.m. at the Americana at Brand, 300 S. Brand Blvd., Glendale. Guests will join the Glendale Pops Orchestra as they celebrate the Bossa Nova and Samba with favorites fromAntonio Carlos Jobim, Sergio Mendes and more. Admission is free.

Fret not, Gold Line is one of the safest

The Gold Line, which runs from Pasadena to East Los Angeles through Northeast L.A. is one of Metro's safest lines, according to Eagle Rock Patch.

According to a recent study, 4.4 so-called crimes per million riders were reported on the Gold Line. That's significantly lower than the 21.1 and 11.0 per million reported on Green and Blue Lines respectively, but higher than the Red and Orange Lines, which reported 3.7 and 4.4 million per million drivers respectively.
