  • Lina in L.A. - Hello Kitty Night at Dodger Stadium
    It's always a purr-fect pairing when Dodger fans collide with Hello Kitty lovers, and last night's home game against the San Diego Padres was no exception. Though fans were given vouchers for the night's free H.K. travel mug, the cat craziness was still in full effect with discounts on Kitty merchandise and fans in feline-inspired gear... and of course lots of blue! Actress Kate Walsh threw out the first pitch and Miss Kitty herself was on hand to pose for pics on the field.

    Charlie "Bird" Parker has been called the greatest saxophonist who ever lived, a jazz legend who not only spearheaded the bebop movement but also laid the foundations of modern jazz. He was also a party animal. In 1952, Los Angeles would play host to one of Parker's wildest exploits. The...
  • Boyhood's Crazy Experiment: Shoot a Film Over 12 Years

    "It's the secret films you have to watch out for," Richard Linklater jokes about his new movie, Boyhood, a furtive experiment that he kept quiet for more than a decade. In 2002, he chose a first-grader named Eller Coltrane, the 6-year-old son of two Texas artists; cast Patricia Arquette and...

  • Tasting Menus Are Everywhere in L.A. Right Now

    When Alma opened in June 2012, it served as a beacon for the possibilities of the new food movement. Debuting with little fanfare on the quiet, scuzzy end of Broadway, it was a restaurant where you could taste the promise of one of the city's brightest young chefs, without a...
  • Steve McQueen at MOCA

    The most impressive thing about Drumroll by Steve McQueen, the video artist who became an Oscar-winning director with 12 Years a Slave, is the way in which it gives an almost omniscient view of a big city without making that city seem any less dense and unwieldy than it is...

    Best Cheap Nail Salon

    Contempo Nails

    To call Contempo Nails a nail salon is like calling the Queen Mary a boat. When you enter this bustling ode to O.P.I., you will be ushered immediately to an armchair by Diane Chiang, the diminutive proprietress/taskmaster/saint who has run this place with military precision for the last 30 years.
