Best of L.A. 2010 

Forget what dastardly outsiders say about Los Angeles, our fair city has a rich and cherished history. This year's Best of L.A. is proof of that. The L.A. Weekly's listings of the best spots for food, drink, shopping, nightlife, recreation and so on include scores and scores of places rich with history dating to the 19th century. So go have a Mary Pickford at the Tam O'Shanter and relive the Roaring Twenties. Have a pepperoni slice at Casa De Pizza (circa '61) to recall the night Ol' Blue Eyes left a $900 tip. Do shots at the Rainbow Bar and Grill, where the Stones, Jim Morrison and other greats of the '70s chowed down after tearing up the Sunset Strip. Or make your own history at today's hottest clubs and hippest shops. Whatever you're in the mood to do, there's sure to be a Best of L.A. listing to help you do it.
