The Weekend Go Go: L.A. Food & Wine, Grand Hula, Mr. Twister, and Tasty Words

It’s August and BOOM, triple digit heat is here. Not to mention earthquakes. Do not give in to the temptation to lie around like a limp noodle, Go Go’ers.  This is the season for hot summer fun.

Dog Haus

Dog Haus

WHY Serious dogs served on grilled King’s Hawaiian bread. WHAT These are solid, substantial hot dogs, often topped with bacon and/or chili.

The Weekend Go Go: Retro Dance Party, Art to Eat, Chinatown Summer Nights, and a

It’s the Janis Joplin part of summer right now. Memorial Day is a barely relaxed preview of fun-in-the-sun.  July 4th is all about the sis-boom-bah.  And Labor Day is a last desperate gasp of summer. But now, the living really is easy. The days are soft.  The nights are cool.  Your daddy’s rich and your [...]

Banh Mi My Tho

Good Girl Dinette

WHY Vietnamese-American comfort food in a stylishly barren Highland Park café. WHAT We’re so happy that chef Diep Tran’s hip yet family-friendly spot finally started serving lunch, especially because her Grandma’s Pho, pork baguette sandwich, spicy fries and delicious curry chicken pot pie are great midday dishes.

Cafecito Orga‡nico

With free WiFi, a large covered patio and baked goods from Echo Park’s Delilah Bakery, it’s a funky and calm [...]
