Okay LA folk... time to tell me... what are your favorite things about/in Los Angeles? Especially your favorite hidden secret stuff that maybe only locals know of. Or super good deals or scenes that make you happy. Stuff that actually makes you stop for a second and think, "Man, I love this place" whether you want to or not.

By hidden secret stuff, don't limit yourself. It could be hickory burgers at the Apple Pan or conveyor belt sushi at Frying Fish. It could be *one* certain corner of the Museum of Jurassic Technology that rocks your world. Wandering the Rose Bowl Swap Meet at 9am. Monday jazz night at the Mint. It could be Sunday breakfast at Walter's in Beverly Hills, watching geriatric movie stars sit there eating pancakes with their wives. Or watching Mexican weddings fight out their territory at the Mulholland fountain.
I want to hear about all of it!
And you can get as quirky and obscure as you want to... one of my old favorite things (now gone thanks to H&H) was showing people a cement slab hidden behind a coke machine at the Chinese theatre which had been signed by an Amateur Contest winner in 1957... he apparently had won the prize of being immortalized at Grauman's for a tap dance routine. And here's
another obscure one. I *love* that kind of random stuff!
