Planes of Fame Air Show

For the first time since '46, a trio of vintage Grumman F8F Bearcat planes will cut through SoCal skies in formation. The notorious aerobats known as the Horsemen invite you into their stomach-churning cockpit…via their new, less-stomach-churning video site.

BoHo Gets Brunching

Starting Sunday, Hollywood's pizza-slinging thrift shop will satiate the ArcLight's matinee crowds with Ricotta Pancakes and Pulled Pork with Cheddar Biscuits and Country Gravy. Oh, and bottomless champagne. Seems the bottomless-drink pool is suddenly…bottomless.
