A Big Sale to Help Surfing Cowboys Move On

Legendary vintage shop Surfing Cowboys is transitioning into an online store on January 29. Until that date, it thought it would give you a deep discount on its mid-century furniture, clothes and surfing paraphernalia. Rather than having to move it all onto the web themselves.

Through Jan 29, Surfing Cowboys, 12553 Venice Blvd, Mar Vista, 310-915-6611

Fried Chicken. Beer. What Else Do You Want?

Sometimes, all you require is fried chicken and beer. And hey, sometimes you're also in Burbank. During those times, you will go to Crawfords Pass and get some spicy poultry with a beer and some boiled peanuts. Then maybe you'll play some pool. We don’t know...

Smashburgers and Burritos... at Michael's

Chef Miles Thompson just endowed Michael's with a happy hour menu. So now you can walk straight from the beach or work or some unenviable jaunt to the Promenade and get smashburgers, lamb shoulder burritos and seared deviled eggs. How convenient that traffic flows west in the evenings.

Hope You've Memorized Days of Thunder

It's Tom Cruise's birthday party and Tom is nowhere to be seen. Somebody needs to stand in for him as he gets honored for his most memorable film roles. That's the premise behind Tom Gun Live, where four audience members are picked to play Tom. Better shine those teeth.

It's Time for a Dodgers Museum
DODGE CITY

It's Time for a Dodgers Museum

Our Los Angeles Dodgers. We almost had it, but no looking back. Instead, check out the pop-up museum that's currently open at Dodgers Stadium. It's a place to look at historic team gear like retired jerseys, the 2017 National League trophy and World Series rings. But can it cure Fernandomania?

What Else Is New

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
