Best Trail Rides HIT : 507

In L.A. you can be toiling in a downtown office building one minute and galloping along an oak-shaded canyon a half hour later. No other metropolis has as much equestrian activity. While most rental stables cater to neophytes—the pace slower than the 405 at rush hour—a handful enable intermediate and advanced riders to get out […]

Best Card Shops HIT : 476

So you’re not into counting up birthday salutations on Facebook (so slapdash) or text-ing on anniversaries (too impersonal). The alternative of putting pen to paper can be as rewarding for the sender as the recipient. A host of card shops takes the experience beyond the ordinary, with old-world designs produced on antique letterpresses and handmade messages […]

Celebrity Picks HIT : 594

Suzanne Goin Chef-Owner A.O.C., Lucques, Tavern   You’re married to David Lentz from the Hungry Cat. Where do two top chefs and the parents of three sneak off to? The Grill in Beverly Hills is a favorite for lunch. I order the crab Louie, and the server—one of those cool old-school types—always asks knowingly, “Sauce […]

Best Karaoke HIT : 594

Photograph courtesy flickr/tetradtx In a city teeming with aspiring entertainers, you can’t swing a mic without hitting a karaoke joint. While Koreatown bars have been hubs since the karaoke machine debuted in Japan in 1971, now a steady circuit runs across L.A. County. You can seek out the most public of humiliation for free or […]

Best MOCA Store Finds HIT : 583

1. The neighbor’s Dalmation never stops howling. The renter’s bichon fries executes sneaky squats on the front lawn. Bribe both with the My Sweet Dog Pull Toy from Yoshitomo Nara by Vilac. Good dog.    2. Just because. The Devo Energy Dome, the headgear sported by the new wave band, always brings a smile to […]

Best Sandwiches HIT : 570

Photograph courtesy flickr/FotoosVanRobin The fabled lobster rolls of Maine are traditionally wrapped in waxed paper or set on Styrofoam plates. But at the lobby lounge in the Ritz-Carlton Marina del Rey , four dainty triangles of grilled pain de mie are piled with fresh crustacean meat that’s been enhanced with a veneer of melted Brie. Basil, tomato, and an […]

Best Dance Studios HIT : 611

 Photograph courtesy Flickr/tibchris Long before Dancing with the Stars, L.A. took dance seriously; after all, this is the city where the funk moves of popping, locking, and electric boogaloo were born and hip-hop came of age. Given our love of exercise, it’s no surprise that there seems to be a studio everywhere you step. Whether […]

Best Single-Screen Theaters HIT : 503

Dedicated movie houses may be disappearing across the country, but in L.A. we’re still blessed with an abundance of them, many of which take their aesthetic cues from the cultural and architectural tastes of their respective eras (Iberian romance! Egyptian grandeur! Deco opulence!). Some have suffered brushes with oblivion since their heydays, but the ones […]

Best Locally Made Jams HIT : 636

    Sierra Madre The third and fourth generations behind the San Gabriel Valley institution E. Waldo Ward & Son cook up some two dozen jams and preserves. Of the original 30 acres of land purchased in 1891, only about 3 remain and are devoted to citrus that goes into marmalades. For everything else—including strawberry, […]

Best Great Eats On The Cheap HIT : 583

Photography courtesy flickr/norwichnuts ANA MARIA’S The carnitas tacos at this haven of Mexican food are huge things: nearly half a pound of juicy meat piled on two corn tortillas, with two more tortillas on the side. The shredded beef known as machaca, which is like Jewish brisket with a Latin accent, is also muy sabroso. […]
