Laundry near Los Angeles Convention Center

I am going to a conference in Los Angeles next week, at the Convention Center downtown. I'd like to do a load of laundry before I leave. According to my hotel (Westin Bonaventure), they don't provide laundry service - only drycleaning - and the nearest place to do it is "a 15-minute drive away." What's the best way to get this done?

Are LA City relocation assistance payments tax exempt?

I live in Los Angeles in an apartment. In 2014 my landlord decided to demolish my building to build condos, so I received a $15k payment of relocation assistance from my landlord as mandated by the Rent Stabilization Ordinance of the Los Angeles Municipal Code and overseen by LA Housing Development (now the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department, I guess). Is this exempt from State and Federal taxes? [more inside]

Looking for a neighborhood in Los Angeles

My partner and I are considering a move to Los Angeles. I have gathered from previous questions and short visits that thinking of "Los Angeles" as one giant city is both overwhelming and not actually helpful in figuring out whether or not we would be happy there. Can you help us narrow down our thinking to specific neighborhoods that might be a good fit? [more inside]

Taking a client out to lunch in Beautiful Downtown Burbank

Just got a new gig, and want to take some potential clients to a nice lunch after a facility tour. The new gig is in Burbank, and in my experience cuisine in Burbank is limited to Frontier Wok, chain restaurants and Ikea meatballs. Please help me with suggestions of good Burbank and Burbank-adjacent restaurants for client lunches. Bonus points for healthy places where fitness-oriented clients can feel at home.

Help me find a certain style of wedding photographer.

I really like the "Luciana Flower Comb" and "Augustina Flower Vine" photos on this site. They're a bit "Laura Nyro in New York in the late sixties." The lighting contrast and the dark background and the small hit of color from the lipstick are very appealing to me. I'm getting married and would like to hire a photographer who can produce shots like this in his/her sleep, but I don't know what to search for -- what terminology, etc. "Goth" is not what I want, and "vintage" is too broad. Would "chiaroscuro" get me anywhere? [more inside]

Small Size Womens Shoes

Does anyone have recommendations for small-size (around size 4, depending on shoe) women's shoes, especially in the Los Angeles area? My wife moved here recently from Japan, where her shoe size is much less uncommon and so it wasn't much of an issue. But in LA, it seems very difficult to find any stores that stock this size. For something like sneakers, children's sizes are probably an option, but for dress shoes / heels I don't think that will work. [more inside]

YANML, LA City Parking Edition

As much as I like to support my local government, I prefer to do it through taxation or other more-or-less straightforward revenue-collection practices. Parking enforcement, to me, is a completely irrational form of revenue generation. So, on the basis of pure principle (and $73), I ask: if the city issues parking citations for vehicles parked on street cleaning routes, (presumably) because such parked vehicles cause the city injury (or whatever, you know, tangible bad thing) by impeding street cleaning, what is the method most likely to succeed of challenging a ticket issued after street cleaning has concluded, on the basis that the city suffered no injury?

What's the best place to buy a heritage turkey in Los Angeles?

Planning ahead for Thanksgiving dinner in a new city. On Long Island my parents used to go to a local turkey farm where you could choose your bird and they'd slaughter it fresh for you. I'd love something similar in the Los Angeles area; failing that, I'm looking for the best place where I can reserve a fresh, heritage bird -- happy to pay extra for it.
