I assume you work a normal day job so it would have to be either early in the morning or in the evening. Sometimes after work, I'll drive past my apt on the way home and just take the 10 all the way to PCH and park in one of those parking lots right on the sand to read and watch the sunset. Sometimes the strand is so empty I only see a handful of people running. I would absolutely suggest that if you have the time.

    Thanks, you two!!!

    I did it my whole life, but what do I know?
    I live near 6th. No way that would work unless I went out past midnight. Far too much traffic. You did high intensity interval training along 6th Street? I'm calling BS on that, but I appreciate you willingness to help.

    Hey LA, my new job is starting in a couple of weeks and I'm getting a pretty hefty allowance to set my home office. Any recommendations on where to go for office furniture (desks, shelving units, really comfortable ergonomic office chairs, etc.)?

    Probably not IKEA. Don't think they offer assembly and I'm am mechanically challenged. It once took me 8 1/2 hours to put together an end table from Target. I wish I was kidding.

    Just go to IKEA, get what you want, and pay me your leftover cash to put it together! I am great with an Allen wrench! My apartment in Mid-City might as well be an IKEA showroom...

    Stocked the fridge in preparation for Carmageddon, people? This is one time I'm absolutely delighted that I can't afford to live on the West Side.

    I'm taking full advantage of the free metro this weekend. I'm thinking about doing a red line bar hop, going to a bar at each red line stop until I get back to MacArthur Park.

    I have family in town and want to take them for a short hike in Griffith Park after a big lunch. I've only done a couple of hikes in the area and they were fairly strenuous. Has anyone hiked from the Griffith Observatory Parking Lot to the top of Mt. Hollywood where you supposedly get great views of the LA basin? I believe the hike is only 1 mile? What I'm wondering is... how difficult would you say the hike is? I'm taking a cousin who NEVER hikes so is she going to have a hard time? Scale of 1-10?

    For someone who NEVER hikes I'd say it is a 5 or 6. It's more like 1.5 miles I think... The challenge is more the weather at the moment.

    If you go slow it's not bad. I have never done it from the observatory parking lot though, can you even do that?

    If you do it from the merry go-round lot, just hike up to the first water tower (30 mins?), then climb the stairs and follow the paved fire road to the top, then head west on the ridges over to the weather station or whatever it is above the hollywood sign. You have great views all around up there and the sign is like 20 feet away.

    Here's a map of it: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=...52142,0.077162

    Dear Los Angeles Folk,

    I will be in town from Wednesday 10pm through Friday 4pm. I am staying in West Hollywood, but I will have a car. What's good to do?

    I have a permanent hard-on for The Groundlings. I always take out-of-towners to see a show there. Thursday night is their all-improv show, and it is great.
    For your health

    Nothing really crazy going on. There's a lot of great new restaurants and bars that opened up on the Eastside if you want to make the trek!

    I would just eat all the tacos. All. The tacos.

    Tacos. Such a good call. Any especially good places to eat that have opened up in the past 3 to 4 years since I moved away?

    Ha, thank you Premium Roast, but basketball isn't really my thing.

    I am definitely going to go see the Emilie Halpern exhibit at Pepin Moore in Chinatown, Ai Weiwei at LACMA, and Pacific Standard Time at the Getty. Anyone want to come?

    Boooooo. So basically what you're saying is that you strongly discourage me from randomly showing up at your workplace and asking you to do a voiceover for my answering machine message?

    It has come to my attention that this week is dineLA Restaurant Week. Which means cheap(ish) meals at amazing restaurants. Now I just need to choose between Jar, Lucques, BLD, or AOC. It's a good problem to have.
