Le Comptoir: At Tiara, Temporarily 

October 31, 2011
Need a visual aid for your print edition? Jonathan Gold visits Gary Menes' Le Comptoir. ("Behind the counter at Tiara, Menes heats a small pot of oil and begins to fry experimental doughnuts he’s made from his bread starter, turning to his chefs for advice, and eventually tosses a perfect torus of dough with a bit of cinnamon sugar. He hands over a small slice. 'If someone had made doughnuts in front of me without offering me a bite, I’d be furious,' he says.")

  • Partying at Comic-Con 2014
    Whoever said nerds can't party has obviously never experienced Comic-Con after dark. The industry parties might have free booze, but most of those execs are back in bed by 10 p.m. If you ask the fans they'll tell you that sometimes the best party is the one happening in the hotel lobby with their friends. We set out to get our geeky grove on and capture all the action in the Gaslamp Quarter. All photos by Shannon Cottrell.
  • Comic-Con's "Celebrity" Autograph Area
    A sometimes overlooked (but still incredibly unique) aspect of San Diego Comic-Con are the celebs available to sign autographs, as well as the autograph seekers themselves. If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!

  • Real Madrid Soccer Practice at UCLA
