You have plenty of time to scout boards and try out the newest open-front, liquid-seamed wet suits before the first pineapple express (hopefully) rolls in from the islands this fall. […]

Best Afternoon Tea HIT : 577

Photograph courtesy Flickr/*saxon* On the surface, Los Angeles wouldn’t seem the most hospitable location for upholding English customs—our weather is too pleasant, our teeth are too impeccable.

Best Retro Diners HIT : 530

Photograph by John Eng There are only a handful of honest-to-goodness railcar diners in L.A. (the reopening of Phil’s in North Hollywood this month means there’s one more). But the term has come to embrace any convivial greasy spoon with hangover-busting sustenance and firecracker waitresses. A diner’s counter has long been one of the few […]
