(L.A. Filter) Introduce me to Silver Lake, CA and environs, please.
Two days a week I'm going to have 2.5 hours to kill between the time I pick up my (4th grade) child from school in the Atwater/Glassell Park area, and the start of an activity in Silver Lake. This is a part of town I'm not very familiar with. And to make it even more fun, I'm on a budget!
I need places to go and things to do. I'm thinking of libraries, parks, cafes, coffee houses, etc. I know it's hipster central + a slightly-sketchy-but-up-and-coming-area, but I need child-friendly spots.
We popped into the Atwater Village public library once and was dismayed at the tiny size of its children's section. Is there a better choice in the area?
For food we're pretty adventurous -- we'll take pretty much any ethnic cuisine over fast food. But since I'm with my kid I especially want a place where we can comfortably sit down for a while.
How about a park that's full of kids in those hours -- as opposed to any park filled with, say, sketchy non-sober adults.
Fill me up with your Eastside advice! (I did see this
, but it's 5+ years old.)
Also, if there are highlights not to be missed in Los Feliz, Atwater, Glassell, etc, those might work, too.
