Another what to do in LA question, but....

I'm from LA. Because I really don't want to dox myself more than I already have, let's say I was born and bred on the west side, and when the area code split happened my home phone was 310, but very close to the 213 border. We'll be staying in my childhood home. [more inside]

Old-school donuts in the Valley

What are your favorite old-school donuts in the Valley? Specifically in Sherman Oaks / Van Nuys / NoHo? I'm not looking for cereal-crusted monstrosities I have to eat with a fork, just basic glazed donuts, maple bars, and fritters. Thanks!

Where to stay in LA with Kids

As part of a road trip with a 11 and 13 year old, we will be in LA from July 8-11. We will be flying into LAX. What part of town should we stay in? My first thought was Santa Monica but I keep hearing that Venice and surrounding areas aren't a good choice anymore. I'll leave it at that but would love to hear from people who are in the area. Other LA contacts have recommended Manhattan Beach, Silver Lake, or Culver City as good options. [more inside]

i need the best late night deli sandwich near Studio City

Angelenos this question is for you. Say a person is setting out from the car rental desk at BUR c 8 or 8:30 pm. This person likes Canter's style big deli sandwiches and wants to get one that night. Should this person just drive down to Canter's in Hollywood, or is there somewhere in Studio City that will be open around 9pm where she can get a sandwich like that? (Hotel is in Studio City, will be traveling with potentially cranky child.)
