Wondering about an old character from Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Does anybody know the story and/or current whereabouts of the Venice Beach busker who balanced an oven, wine glasses, and some other stuff on his face circa late-90s/early-00s? I believe his name was Frank Simon. [more inside]

What are the best taco trucks in Los Angeles?

What are the best taco trucks in Los Angeles? Not Twitter trucks or Kogi trucks or grilled cheese vans or mobile record stores or cheesecake-foie gras-waffle-popsicle high concept rickshaws. Those are all cool, but looking at trucks that sell straight up Mexican food like tacos and cemitas and tortas and seafood, what are your favorites? And what days/hours are they there? [more inside]

What's a nice thank-you trinket for a former Angeleno?

My friend, a former Los Angeles resident, was kind enough to have me stay at her place in New York City for several days recently, while I was visiting. As a token of my gratitude, I want to send along some kind of LA-specific trinket - you know, something you'd put on your desk at work or your bureau or fridge or whatever, that says, "Hey: Los Angeles" to someone who knows the place. Ten bucks or less is the range. What would you get, if you were in my position?
