A dear friend from overseas is visiting me on her first trip to L.A... but unfortunately I'm going through a bit of a rough patch health-wise, and so can't help her sightsee as much as I'd like. She's expressed interest in hopping on one of the Hollywood bus tours while I get some rest over the weekend, but I have no idea which ones are best and which ones to avoid. Any former tourists to my fair city have any suggestions?

My birthday is on the 18th and I plan on taking Monday off to make it a long weekend. But that happens to be the weekend of Carmageddon. Which, if you don’t live near Los Angeles, is when all hell will break loose because 10 miles of freeway will be closed for a Saturday and a Sunday. Truly the end of the world. [more inside]

I love cars, particularly European classics, but modern and US cars too (though not the Japanese tuning scene). I'm in Los Angeles until January 22nd; is there an event or place that is a 'must see' while I'm here?

I'm thinking of going to LA for the first week in May. I've never been there before, don't have a full driver's license, and am low on funds. A director has expressed mild interest in my writing (read one of my screenplays, doesn't want to buy it, wants to discuss my writing in general)--he's in Venice Beach. Where should I stay? Also, what kind of license would I need to rent a Vespa type scooter? [more inside]
