The Sandwiches, Victorians, & Echo Park Lake Stairswalk

Location image of event venue


Please join your fellow stairhikers as we start at Eastside Market, then head over the Victorians of Angelino Heights, and then Echo Park Lake. After the walk stay as we'll stay for sandwiches from Eastside Market.

Eastside Market ( has been in business since 1929. Today, if you want to find a City of LA worker, come here at lunch time during the week and you'll find a City of LA employee. Most will be eating either, the #7-roast beef, pastrami and cheese or #9-Italian combo, sandwich. All sandwiches are $8. They also have spaghetti, other pastas, and salads.

If you're planning to stay for sandwiches after our walk, I suggest you either place an order before the walk or call in an order during the walk. It will be pretty busy at Eastside Market when we get back.
