That sound you hear is this year's LA Weekly “Best of L.A. 2012” issues dropping into boxes and newstands and cafés and gyms and coffeeshops and massage parlors (that's a joke, sort of) around town this morning. And populating online, of course, with hundreds of people and places and lovely things to eat and drink. (Best Burger! Best Restaurant! Best Taco! Best Cocktails! Best Korean BBQ! Best Place to Eat Alone! Etc. etc. etc.) But maybe go get the actual paper, just to prove that you can still turn real pages, and because it will make a fine ad hoc tray for that plate of tacos.
