Best Skydiving Los Angeles 2012 

Skydive Coastal California

The takeoff point for the impressive 12-minute flight to your dropzone might not be in L.A. — it's actually at the Camarillo Airport — but make no mistake, you will see L.A.! If you can keep your eyes open, that is. Sound scary? Don't worry, Skydive Coastal California specializes in first-time jumpers. The friendly staff with a generous sense of humor helps to get you out of the plane at 14,000 feet — because they are strapped to you, of course. Leave all the technicalities to them and free your mind as you experience what 120 mph freefall feels like for more than 40 seconds. If this sounds even mildly exciting to you, just do it. 375 Durley Ave., Ste. B, Camarillo. (805) 322-4763, skydivecoastalcalifornia.com.

  • Karaoke Pole Dancing @ The Viper Room
    Sam's Hofbrau presented "Sam Tripoli's Rock N Pole Championship" this week at The Viper Room.

Entertainment included a special appearance by porn star Tera Patrick, serving as judge, and performing a burlesque number. All photos by Nanette Gonzales.
  • The Best L.A. Costumes of 2014 (So Far)
    It's no secret that SoCal knows what it's doing when it comes to make-up and costume design, (hello, Hollywood!) so it makes sense that we would also have the world's best cosplay. Here are our picks for the best of 2014 (so far).
  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.
