The Weekend Go Go: Ms. Go Go’s Whisky & Poetry Salon, A Taste of Mexico, Great Gatsby Party, Victorian Lamplighting

The Weekend Go Go: Ms. Go Go’s Whisky & Poetry Salon, A Taste of Mexico, Great Gatsby Party, Victorian Lamplighting

Go Go’ers, consider this a bonus week…and not just because Ms. Go Go is co-hosting a fantastic pre-weekend event! Thanksgiving has been sliced, diced, stirred, carved and (hopefully) digested.  Christmas gremlins elves are just cresting the horizon in their elf-mobiles.  It’s a little too early to think about the beloved culinary hockey pucks known as [...]

Hunan Style

Hunan Style

WHY Our vote for the best Hunanese cooking in Southern California. WHAT A chile-emphatic menu offers carefully cooked Hunan dishes without the usual vats of oil. The toss-fried lamb, glowing like an electric-powered Christmas tree, is a powder keg of a dish lit up with a quartet of chile styles: fresh diced, dried whole, flaked [...]

The Go Go Post-Gobble: Epic Hike, Big Movies, Small Saturday

The Go Go Post-Gobble: Epic Hike, Big Movies, Small Saturday

Go Go’ers, you couldn’t be more thankful that you survived Turkey Day without going into a coma.  (All those relatives.  All that liquor.) Read on for ways to reward yourself for non-coma, entertain the out-of-town hordes, and have fun while shopping. The latter: not an oxymoron. Post-Gobble Gambol Kick butt post-Turkey Day with Dan Koeppel [...]

JNJ Burger & Bar-B-Q

JNJ Burger & Bar-B-Q

WHY Exceptionally tender and tasty pork and beef ribs and pulled pork, smoked by Jay Nelson with oak and almond woods. WHAT A shack in the best sense of the word, JNJ is indeed a burger joint, but that’s not why you come here. You come for the honest-to-goodness barbecue: tender pork ribs, hefty beef [...]

Diamond Bakery

Diamond Bakery

WHY Kosher challah, delicious rye and heavenly cheesecakes. WHAT So maybe you have to wait a while, and maybe the fellow behind the counter could be a little less brusque. But these are the things one must endure to get a rye bread this good. Since you had to wait so long for your rye, [...]

Joan’s on Third

Joan’s on Third

WHY Wonderful sandwiches (turkey meatloaf, pressed chicken, bacon and brie), lots of prepared salads (the lentil is particularly good), elegant cheese and charcuterie platters and famed cupcakes. WHAT Originally a caterer, Joan McNamara gradually expanded her business into a café, gourmet market and upscale takeout operation, and each facet has met with tremendous success. From [...]

Rahel Ethiopian Veggie Cuisine

Rahel Ethiopian Veggie Cuisine

WHY Hearty stews made from chickpeas and lentils accompany plenty of vegetable side dishes, like greens with garlic or tomatoes with green pepper, while the fluffy injera bread adds healthy touches like flax, sunflower seeds and sesame. Flaxseed and barley also make appearances in smoothie-like drinks. WHAT Most of the Ethiopian restaurants on Fairfax serve [...]

Fogo de Cha‹o

Fogo de Cha‹o

WHY When you’re starving, celebrating and have $55 to blow on a single dinner, not counting drinks, tax and tip (or dessert, but you won’t have room for it anyway). WHAT Of Southern California’s several churrascarias, none has been more successful than this grand temple of meat, where spits of lamb, beef, pork and chicken [...]

The Weekend Go Go:  Arroyo Arts Collective 20th Annual Discovery Tour + Ms. Go Go Regrets

Go Go’ers, this weekend is the official calm before the holiday storm.  What’s the best way to soothe your already-turkey-stressed soul?  Seeing  beautiful, beautiful art! It’s also the perfect insider L.A. activity to entertain visiting art fans as well as  (too) early-in-town Lookie Lou relatives. You may have one or two of those. Over 100 NELA artists [...]
