Grill Outside, Break the Law

Hosted by


Glendale recently began enforcing an ordinance that bans commercial grilling outdoors. This is having a big effect on Glendale's Armenian population since this kind of grilling is central to their celebrations and foodways.

Ara Najarian is a lawyer by day and a Glendale City Council Member by night.  He is also one of 85,000 Armenians in the City of Glendale.  Armenians make up 40% of Glendale's population, the largest Armenian population in the United States.
