Goner Message Board / ???? / things to do in los angeles?
Posted: Jan 21, 2008 6:48 pm
 
i'll be there starting saturday for 4 nights & will have some free time (mostly nights) when not working.

i know next to nothing about L.A. i do know i'll be very close to hollywood blvd.

i plan on checking out amoeba. any other record/cd stores? live music places? bars? other goner-friendly places?

is it realistic to think i could get a nosebleed ticket for $50 or less from a scalper for the cavs vs. lakers on sunday 12:30 PST game?
Posted: Jan 21, 2008 7:05 pm
 
scratch that. i'll be on wilshire, sort of near downtown (i guess), not near hollywood blvd.
Posted: Jan 21, 2008 7:31 pm
 
will you have a car? or will you be taking public transportation? that really does color your activities.

on sundays, there's the farmer's market on ivar/selma (around cahuenga - close to amoeba... combine your journey!) -which is great, but i presume you're in a hotel... but i like it.

live music places that don't suck, you need a car to get to:
spaceland, mr t's bowl, the scene, the echo

bars - well, they're all over the place
frolic room on hollywood blvd., bunch of places in the sunset junction area

where's gore? he's the man on the scene...

I'm gonna be in Huntington beach all next week. Probably won't have time to do much (or to visit I Am the Foot), but I'll bet the weather's a lot better than here!

i'll be in town starting sat 01/26, leaving wed 01/30.

no car, relying on either my feet.....or public transportation.....or cabs.

should be some street punk band playing somewhere on your block... keep your ears open, but be sure to bring your boots and braces!

"nobody walks in LA" - because its quite spread out
bookmark this page: http://www.metro.net/default.asp
its got bus maps and subway maps and schedules
and that's about it as far as public transportation goes
if you want to go to the west side - that will take you a long time
the santa monica big blue bus is the thing to ride in/around the west side and on long hauls across the city (ie: LA to SM) on santa monica blvd

taxis - i've only once taken a cab in LA - you have to call, the dispatchers are horrible people who prefer you give them an exact address rather than "corner of La Cienega and Beverly Blvd"

Oh good grief...rent a damn car...and sit in traffic and cry like everybody else.

yo...

Saturday night...1/26
Live Fast Die!
Static Static
The Small Steppes

and a new unnamed band band with members of the clorox girls, feelers, plastic letters.

At Zen Sushi in Silverlake

Bars - The Smog Cutter (old Bukowski bar)
Bar 107 - 4th and Main not too far from staples.

Bahooka's is cool but it's in Rosemead...about 30 minutes east of Downtown and they close early.

If you need some tiki action go to Tiki Ti on Sunset just passed the junction

record stores - Amoeba, Headline Records on melrose and Don's Music in Eagle Rock

Eats - Phillipe's - French Dip Sammiches on Alameda just east of Chinatown

It's either LA or London (or maybe Dublin since Wifey and Rigglette are Irish citizens). I'm thinking sun/fun might be cooler than depressed Limeys and rain all the time. Plus they don't have baseball or Pot clinics in the UK.

Pez - The subway runs under wilshire. Good way to get you downtown or to Hollywood...but it doesn't run very late.

What's that cool old bar in Hollywood with the red leather banquettes? That place is great for daytime drinking. Also, do they still have a Denny's in Hollywood? (I guess Theresa said The Cramps Denny's is gone but maybe the Rodney's Denny's is still there? I can't live in LA without Denny's.)
Posted: Jan 22, 2008 5:57 pm

Musso and Frank's?
enter through the kitchen from the parking lot in back - very old skool! the restaurant is pricey - a biz lunch expense account place - but the happy hour and bar scene is fun for people watching. i met laura huxley (widow of aldous) there. david carradine was with here --- that's what i mean by people watching. really unexpected stuff

Clifton's is rad but, the food's average...Just a great show for people watching if you go during the day...Smog cutter rules!!!Esp. if you like karaoke. I used to live 2 blocks away....Great tacos everyfriggin where here...But, Gore's tamales n' Salsa kick the shit out of most of any you'll ever digest.

Where at on wilshire? I'm just 4 blocks from it...It is a rather long street though...

Trickknee, what you doing down there? Gimme a call, fucker...Tried to call you last week.

Denny's are everywhere and rodney is everywhere still and looking like an old jewish broad.

well the cool thing about Jumbo's are that you can drink there...and the girls pick the songs off the juke...the only time I've seen a girl "strip" to Tom Waits was at Jumbo's...there's a new law in CA that says it's either bikini or totally nude...so I'd rather drink

1. Sit in traffic... you really won't have a choice here.
2. Look at the graffiti... you won't have a choice here either.
3. Go to the address of some really cool place that used to exist and wonder why they would rip it down and build a strip mall in it's place.

I saw a friend strip to Jets to Brazil once. It was painful.

Seeing this unenhanced super-stacked broad dance to "The Streak" was one of the highlights of my life. This was back in the day when you had to listen to "Closer" by NIN at least 5 times if you spent more than an hour in a strip club. Oh, it was in a bar with 3 stages, full bar, full nude, $4.50 steak dinners and you get the right girl, she'll give you a peek inside an orifice or two. Only bummer was they charged cover during peak hours, typically 2-4 bux though.

Sometimes seeing 'em dance to Tom Waits can get old hat at Mary's and Magic Gardens,
Posted: Jan 23, 2008 8:26 pm
 
Super young goth chick dancing to Coil's "Anal Staircase" was pretty cool too. I could go on, that's the last example for the day...

Go to the Frolic room, right off of Hollywood. Or there's Frolic II, which is also right off Hollywood, or the Powerhouse, which was my favorite bar when I lived there, on Highland right off Hollywood. And Boardners (?) which is right off Hollywood.

Oh, and whats the name of the place downtown that has never closed since 1920 or somethin? And is open 24hrs a day??
Posted: Jan 23, 2008 8:57 pm
 
I <3 the Powerhouse. Fantastic Ambience, nice smoking alley, but the beer prices were INSANE. IIRC, $10 a pitcher of the beast.

When I lived there, Joe Powerhouse was still behind the bar (heard he sold the place and then died shortly afterwards) and you could still smoke INSIDE! (So I dunno about the smoking alley). But I just loved that place. It's still the first place I go if I ever go back to visit.

Frolic is cool...Frolic II is gone...it's some paris hilton haunt now

powerhouse is cool if you like winger.

Boardner's got sold...it's okay if you leave by 9 pm otherwise it's Goth town.

I would higly recommend getting out of hollywood by dusk. that whole area is where all that celebrity shit happens. it's sad

Remember to dress appropriately... When in Rome...

some tips...

1. Casual dress - A black "hoodie" zipped all the up with the hood over your head is appropriate even in 95 degree weather...

2. If you are going to "dress up" for something fancy try an official Laker's "Kobe" jersey or a "Bling" encrusted "Raiders" baseball cap. This outfit will work for either males or females.

3. Talk into your cell phone LOUDLY everywhere you go.

If you follow these tips you should fit in everywhere you go in Los Angeles.

Thank you,
HG

If you're a Simpsons fan: The street where Homer lands after getting sucked through a vortex & winds up in the real world, is on the same block as Freakbeat Records (decent enough store if you have a car, time to kill & extra cash) In Sherman Oaks about a 10 minute drive north of Hollywood. 13616 Ventura Blvd. (near Ventura Canyon Ave)

why not make it the hot dog tour of LA
If you find yourself on Sunset or Hollywood in the wee hours & you see a mexican guy grilling bacon dogs with peppers & onions on a street cart, you must have 2.

If you don't mind eating hot dogs between 9:30-11:45 AM, hit up Pinks. Their menu is rather extensive. Any other time you'll be standing in a mile long line like a tard.

If you have a iron stomach & are brave try oki dog & get their signature (2 dogs, pastrami, chili & cheese wrapped in a tortilla) for good people watching (scary) go late @ nite.

don't forget Skooby's on Hollywood blvd...next door to the old Masque...Best hot dog in town...in my opinion

http://texasbbqking.com/menu.php
For killer bbq near downtown. huge portions & good prices. Original Texas BBQ King. If anyone has other bbq suggestions I'd love to know.

I still haven't stopped @ Skooby's, but I have heard that said.

Also on Hollywood Blvd, you'll find some really good t-shirt shops. Just east of Highland Ave on the north side of the street you'll find 2 really close to each other (maybe next door). I think one of them is called Capital Rock. There's another good one on the south side of the street about a block or so further east. Mostly classics. If your t-shirt taste are strictly punk rock & garage, Headline on Melrose has a great selection too. Tons of patches & stickers too.
Posted: Jan 25, 2008 6:54 pm
 
dr hoggly woggly's tyler texas bbq. It's in north hollywood or van nuys. That was the best when I was out there. Huge portions. is Mondo Video still around? They have a great Olsen twins selection.
Posted: Jan 25, 2008 7:30 pm
 
Mondo just closed down.
Haven't been to Hogly Wogly's, heard of it. BBQ King's portions are also huge. If I order the sampler basket & share an order of tri-tip with the boy it lasts me 3 meals. They cook it outdoors on real wood, you can smell it from a mile away.

Thai Town is the place with the giant hot dog on the roof right? I've ordered in from there.... They make a good shirley temple ;o) Though for Thai... I usually order from Tom Yum, best Thai Toast.

On that note, can't wait to come to NY so I can get honest to goodness Shrimp Toast. Chinese is one of those foods that is better back east for some reason.

Looks like i'll have to try Dr Hogly Wogly's. I'm not in Van Nuys very much , but I need to go to the Pick-a-Part yards in Sunland, so I make a stop there too. that & the Van Nuys Walmart for some mexican candy. Shit you not, best anywhere, aside probably from that place on Alvarado St (which I haven't been to).

I'm pretty loyal to BBQ King, but I like to try them all. If anyone ever tells you to go to Mr Cecil's tell em to fuck off...seriously.

Nope, just a passenger side view mirror for a 2000 Corolla & maybe some hubcaps. I'd totally have a classic car if i had the $ for upkeep & some know-how under the hood. But for now, good ol reliable economy cars are my ride.

there's BBQ sauce all over my keyboard

good shit huh?

"thai town", i just meant that whole strip of hollywood blvd.

I live just south of there near Western & Santa Monica.

Yeah I've heard that... We did get some damn fine peking duck at Hong Kong Bistro on Cahuenga on Xmas day. They also do some great appetizers, thought for some reason they serve thai toast rather than shrimp toast... I'm sure SGV is better though.
Posted: Jan 25, 2008 5:52 pm
 
sgv rules for all things asian. i wish i was closer to it. good everything. i love that area for thai though...

in case anyone cares, i did zilch in los angeles because my work conference took all my time & it's not so easy to get around.

well, i did manage to make it to amoeba one day & that was fun. headline would have been a 2.5 mile walk from there so i skipped it.

oh yeah - and now britney won't leave me alone & don cheadle was on my return flight.

Dang... Now I want to try this place but there's not one near me... S. Hoover is kinda close. Maybe next time I'm downtown.

I ate at In & Out Burger and Der Wienerschnitzel for the first time (back to back, block apart). In & Out is pretty good fast food stuff and Der Wienerschnitzel has really gross dogs & decent chili (that I could taste for the rest of the day). The night before we ate at what was supposedly the #1 French restaurant in CA, and I liked In & Out better.

I'm pissed that cheap taco Tuesday prices went up from 39 cents to 69 cents at my Del Taco. It's an outrage! Happened just a couple months ago.

I wish I could remember exactly where I got it, but the BEST al pastor I EVER had was in sanberdino - that's how they say it anyways, San Bernardino, I think, is how it's spelled. It was in a strip mall. Fuckin' perfect. The pork had a little crust to it, and MMMMMMmmmm.

The taco truck by me puts a little cinnamon in there or something, makes me wanna hurl...so I stick to asada and lengua for the most part.
