Best Dancing HIT : 726

Photograph courtesy Flickr/Harry525   Parents may be donning cargo shorts, and kids may be ripping their forebears’ CDs, but on the dance floor, there’s still a gaping chasm between the generations. Nobody weaned on Slim Shady is going to move in quite the same way as someone who’s survived the original onslaughts of prog, punk, […]

Best Library Collections HIT : 540

Illustration by Serge Bloch It’s true—there is still plenty of printed matter that can’t be accessed on the Internet or uploaded to your Kindle.

Best Pedicure HIT : 566

Photograph courtesy Flickr/Betsssssy Pedicure buffs know that a long-lasting polish is nothing without an even longer foot scrub and rub. At Frédéric Fekkai Salon, Tien or Sarah will spend more than 30 minutes making all those rough spots disappear—using four different files and the salon’s signature shea butter cream—before toes are touched. (440 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills, 310-777-8700) Genia […]

Using margarita salt as an exfoliator, lime as aromatherapy, and avocado for moisture, this treatment polished off the competition. (319 1/2 S. Robertson Blvd., Beverly Hills, 310-652-5563) No […]

Best Happy Hours HIT : 568

Decked out with piñatas and Corona blowup toys, Fiesta Cantina is where cute, casual guys go to feel like they’re in Cancún (if Cancún weren’t so trashy).

Best Volleyball Beaches HIT : 550

The doubles format, adopted as an Olympic sport in 1996, predominates today. The beach game is popular because it’s cheap (the price of the leather […]
