Not sure exactly what your looking for Courtney, but here you go.
West Hollywood/Beverly Hills area...
High end great food - Bouchon, Scarpetta, Red Medicine, and Providence.
Modestly priced great food - Joan's on Third, Jar, Animal, Son of a Gun, AOC, Fig & Olive, Playa, and Cooks County.
The Fat Dog on Fairfax has amazing brunch and really good bloody mary's. And The Surly Goat right up the street is an amazing craft beer watering hole (also with full bar)
I love the Surly Goat. Golden State on Fairfax supposedly has the best burger in LA, but I haven't been yet. My roommate raves about it.
Were Ricky's Fish Tacos around when you were? If not, go.
Someone call me?
The Golden State lamb burger is the best burger on Earth. They only have about 30 of them and only on Thursdays.
edit: photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/umamima...n/photostream/ it is as good as it looks
Although Golden State is very very good (especially that lamb burger MY GOD) I would have to go with Rustic Canyon in Santa Monica as the best burger.
I wanted to go to a Gotye at the El Rey tonight but apparently it's sold out and craiglist tickets are $160. Booooo LA scalpers.
^ that's what happened when he played at spaceland, too. or whatever it's called now.
I am opting for a good olf fashioned korean spa scrub down with an old school friend, I think.
Went to the Getty earlier today and the Pacific Standard Time show is quite interesting and very worth a trip if you enjoy modernism and anti-canonical theory.
Do you like the Jayhawks? If so, I have an extra ticket. Free of course.
Under the Big Black Sun at MOCA is my favorite PST exhibit. Really enjoyed Five Car Stud, but you missed it by a few weeks, Courtney!
Five Car Stud was pretty traumatic. I'm really glad I got to walk around in that. heather has a membership so we go fairly often. LACMA has endless treats.
Yeah, the ONE THING I got to keep out of the breakup was the joint LACMA membership...so that's nice.
This is going on right now. I've been wanting to go. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/cult...-at-lacma.html
I refuse to believe that. How could that be so?
I'm looking for someone around the SoCal area who is into video production as a hobby/career -- someone who knows someone perhaps?
A friend of mine who has recently started a creative design projects company that makes/sells crafty accessories and shirts is looking to make an 8-10 minute video for their Kickstarter -- they're really honest, mellow people and of course are willing to compensate if the quality is respectable. There is also a charitable cause behind their business -- for each shirt sold, a shirt is given to a child in need. Any help, referral is much appreciated -- thanks.
Also, here is the company site.
PM me obzen
Sounds like an easy one shot tripod shoot
Obzen I also have a hook up for filming and editing, but we're in the OC. Let me know if you still need help though.
Have any of you heard any reviews on American Idiot yet? Is it worth the $75+ cost and would it be appropriate for a 6 year old?
I am about to book a hotel for April 16 - 18. I am looking at The Wilshire. It's on 3515 Wilshire Blvd. Is this is a good central location for staying in downtown LA and being close to shopping and restaurants? I will have a car. I am sure I missed the boat on getting tix for all those concerts that are happening those days, but the only one I'd care to attend is Wild Beasts at the Echo on wed. night. How close am I to the echo from here (too lazy to google map it on my phone).
