3. FOLLOW FRIDAY: The Americana At Brand Memes
That's right, I'm featuring a meme account. The Americana at Brand is a giant outdoor shopping mall in Glendale owned and operated by Caruso Affiliated. The Americana at Brand Memes is an unaffiliated Twitter account dedicated entirely to the concept that The Americana is superior to other outdoor malls in LA, specifically the Glendale Galleria. It's like The Americana is Maggie Simpson and the Galleria is Gerald, the baby with one eyebrow.
The account is run by an anonymous comedian who told Los Angeles Magazine last month that he attends The Americana (a.k.a. "free Disneyland") at least once a week. It even inspired several copycat accounts, praising the Glendale Galleria, Third Street Promenade, and Burbank Town Center, though the latter two accounts have been suspended and the Glendale Galleria account conceded defeat in late July.
I guess it's official, then. The Americana at Brand is the greatest outdoor mall in Los Angeles. At least until a centrally-located comedian can get The Grove Memes up and running.
