After hearing all the raves about Green Village, I finally made it out to dinner there last month. The "fanciness" of the restaurant interior with its gold and orange color scheme lost some of the elegant feel with the addition of flat screen TVs on the walls. What is it with flat screen TVs at Asian restaurants? Shouldn't the experience be about enjoying the food and the company as opposed to watching various Asian variety shows? Oh well, I digress; let's get on to the food.
After being seated and having settled down a bit, we were given the menu. This menu was no short story. It was an... Read More
Tucked away at the very top of Beachwood Drive is a box canyon. Nestled in among the rocks and plateaus is a small ranch called the Sunset Stables. Itâ€™s been there for years and hosted many a tourist and Angelino alike on a spectacular trail ride over the Hollywood hills into the flats of Burbank. Sunset Ranch as it is also known, is a working dude ranch. At any one time there are up to a dozen trail horses for rent. Their territory is exclusively the bridal paths of Griffith Park - which remains the largest urban park within the confines of any American city. It is a little touch of... Read More
I just recently bought a used car. Being a conscientious, and maybe even paranoid, consumer, I thoroughly checked under the hood for dryness on the various belts and hoses, took detailed notes when the seller informed me of the repair history, and listened attentively for strange noises as I test drove it on a variety of roads. I even gave the tires a good kick, just to be sure.
There were four things I did not check. Four pillars upon which the entire car's utility rests. But what could possibly be wrong with the wheels?
My otherwise immaculate 1998 Nissan Maxima (you know, the white one... Read More
This coming Saturday, January 27th, from 9:00-12:00PM you can make Los Angeles a healthier place to live by planting a tree with TreePeople. Every week local volunteers help plant trees in the city streets, local mountains, and school campuses. Trees help to keep the air clean, stabilize terrain, protect wildlife, reduce heat gain and provide nutrition. Planting trees is an excellent way to educate children about the environment and bring the community together.
This Saturday there will be four locations for tree planting. In Studio City, they will continue with part two of LA City Mayor... Read More
I have lived in downtown LA for more than a year now, and am moving out in less than a week. No nostalgia for me. Relief. Dreams of serenity - of not being jolted out of my sleep by the club music next to my apartment -- of sirens and calls from policemen joyfully (this is debatable) halting speeding vehicles in their tracks. I lived infront of a freeway for more than a year, walked home from the bus stop around the same time, braving catcalls, bums saying hi in their drunken stupor, and mislead testosterone motivated men stopping their cars asking if I want I ride. What was an annoyance became... Read More
Having regular shoes is not hip anymore; to be cool you have to own the pair that only you and a happy few have. Limited edition shoes are all the fuss lately, and all the major brands know it.
WHY81, presented by Nike Basketball, is both a contest and a celebration. A celebration of what you may ask?
January 22nd 2007 will mark the one year anniversary of a major event in the history of basketball.
A year ago, on January 22nd 2006, Kobe Bryant scored 81 points in a game opposing his team, the LA Lakers, and the Toronto Raptors.
His point total in that game is second in NBA history only to... Read More
