Rad! Cool! Phat! This describes the happenings at the vibrantly colorful, creative, inviting and artistic EZ New Web Laundromat and Café in East Culver City. Say what? You heard it right. "Sip, soak, and surf all at the same time." Using the monkey as her mascot symbol for doing good, President Marion Illies has chucked the corporate world for a while and is putting her business know-how into this avant-garde, forward thinking spot. Different? You bet. The first thing that greets you are the vibrant colors. On one side there is a Euro café, on the other side a laundromat.

The excellent menu includes salads, Panini sandwiches, delectable dinners and gourmet items created by Marion, catering, coffees, desserts, and decadent chocolates. The prices are unbelievably low. Of course you, or your staff (because naturally we assume you have staff), can do your laundry here while surfing the Internet, free of course.

EZ is rapidly making a dent in Westside Nightlife, rapidly becoming the place to be and be seen. They are now offering entertainment and/or music just about every night.

Here’s how the nightlife is shaping up: Monday is Karaoke Night. Calling all future singing idols, here is your chance to belt, croon or purr out your favorite tune. Tuesday is Open Mic/Comedy Night. Just take the mike and perform. Are you a singer, poet, or a comedian with a new routine? Show it off here in this open, friendly, easy environment.

Wednesdays are for Jam Sessions running the gamut from hip-hop, jazz, groove, you name it, you jam it. On Thursdays, show your expertise, or become expert at Salsa. There are lessons, then plenty of time to move to the sultry sounds. Come solo, as a couple or with friends. Friday evenings is Club Night.

EZ likes to party like it’s 1999. Femmes get in free, and guys pay only $5. But wait, there’s more. Saturday is Caribbean Night where rhythmic, cadence sounds make for a wonderful time and a variety of local bands show their Caribbean know-how. On Sunday, Poetry Night will stir up your awareness with the thought-provoking spoken word.

A lot of talent – whether already on the boards, latent, or up-and-coming – talented artists will be set at your feet every night by owner Marion Illies. All you have to do is show up, sit down, have a mocha cappuccino and let yourself be entertained. EZ is easy. And if you’re local, they also pick up and deliver your cleaning, laundry and food.

Open 9 a.m.-10 p.m. daily. EZ New Web Laundromat and Café is located at 6114 Washington Blvd., (310) 559-3279. For more information, visit www.ez-days.com.
