"We have so many SAG members coming here," Genevieve Ostrander, the owner of , said.

She was talking about why her popular Echo Park coffee shop had decided to offer a 10 percent discount to members of the Screen Actors Guild, one of the unions representing on-screen performers.

It was the first we'd heard of a local business doing so.

Ostrander said she'd also honor our Writers Guild card, and, presumably, those from other entertainment guilds.

Not a bad idea.

Delilah serves the highly creative--and historically union--community nestled around Echo Park Avenue above Sunset Boulevard.

Several well-known actors including Roger Guenveur Smith and Molly Parker live in the canyon.

Ostrander gave credit to her manager Matthew Higham for the idea.

Do you know of other places around Echo Park and Silver Lake offering discounts to entertainment workers?
