Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Yes, another trip beyond downtown.  Culver City sits at the end of the newest extension of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit system, the Expo Line. It was incorporated in 1917 and named after Harry Culver, the real estate entrepreneur who accumulated the parcels of land that compose the city. We will be dining at Rush Street, a large restaurant complex at 9546 Washington/Culver Boulevard recommended by Shockwave, and which room we're in will be contigent on how many of us there are.

This is a week from Saturday, and I'm thinking 1:30 PM in case there are 25 of us, because the comfortable space that is the Lounge opens to the public later in the evening and the restaurant might need time to prep.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I'll take myself out there probably Wednesday and report on it. The menu is interesting in a something for everyone way, and it's operating in the same price range range as Pitfire Pizza. Zagat gives it an 18.

As usual, kosmail me if you plan to attend, or indicate that you will be attending in the comments.
