PHOTOS: Culver City Takes Carmageddon Weekend in Stride

Some local Culver City businesses have done a roaring trade this weekend, while others have actually seen a drop in customers.

Between the extreme heat, the 405 closure and Sunday morning's triathlon, some Culver City businesess have been so busy they've been run off their feet by locals who have chosen to stay close to home this weekend.

However, there are also plenty of businesses that have either seen barely any traffic or have decided to close their doors this weekend.

Even though Venice Boulevard re-opened to motorists shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday following the triathlon that began at Venice Beach, many Culver City roads were practically devoid of cars. Both the Western and Eastern end of Washington Blvd. in Culver City were virtually empty at noon. Normally, the lunch time crowd in Culver City is busy and there's hardly any parking. However, Patch still managed to snag a prime parking spot outside Starbucks on Culver Boulevard Sunday afternoon, as we headed to downtown Culver City and beyond to see how the City was coping with Carmageddon II.
