Best Morning O (Yes, That Kind)

Every Thursday morning, about 20 folks convene in a house south of Sunset in Silver Lake for OM Circle, a group Orgasmic Meditation gathering that's focused on a 15-minute clitoris-stroking practice. Despite the bevy of spread-eagle women whose clits are stimulated by certified OM trainers, there is nothing lewd about......

Best Vegan Options

Despite L.A.'s healthy leanings, most restaurants still miss the mark when it comes to meat-free menu options. Kitchen Mouse forgoes not only the meat but also gluten and refined sugar — and what it lacks in fat and carbs, it makes up for in creativity and flavor. Inside the adorable,......

Best Coffee Shop for Working

Fix Coffee is a godsend: Its coffee, its booze, its menu, its baked goods and the many (many) electrical outlets it provides, along with free Wi-Fi, for us sun-starved writers who set up camp for the entire day while nursing a single cup of yerba maté (More hot water, please?)......

Best Bond-Worthy Weed Dispensary

Billing itself as "a nonprofit research collective," this unassuming Eagle Rock dispensary is as classy as they come. Their security team wears gabardine suits, for crissakes. Strictly by appointment only for first-timers, Cornerstone Collective feels way more like a traditional medical office setting than it does a swinging weed club......

Wettest Drinking Water

Plastic bottled water is out, given that most bottles never decompose and have this nasty habit of finding their way to our oceans, only to float to some Arctic nether region where it's just a matter of time before a litter of baby penguins suffocates, having stuck their heads inside......

Best Body/Mind/Spirit Tune-Up

Armed with an uber-expansive arsenal of ever-more-out-there alternative modalities, Dr. Sally Kleinbart is so much more than a next-level, amazing chiropractor. She is a straight-up, full-service, medicine woman. Kleinbart, who works out of a DTLA high-rise, is a veritable master of structural integrity. Intuitive, educated and experienced, with a strong......

Best Full-Service Spiritual Hub

Nestled on a quiet strip of Spring Street in DTLA, The Springs is, hands down, L.A.'s coolest full-service spiritual hub. Its offerings are vast and high-vibing, including a raw vegan restaurant with wine bar and beer on tap, which is a little confusing given that most folks who won't ingest......

Best (Illusory) Performance Troupe

You've probably seen them draped in long white dresses at MOCA, perched on sculptural geometric shapes at Art Basel or leaping high above the Santa Monica Mountains on Nowness, in that dreamy video for The Acid's "Basic Instinct." And, if you haven't, you will. WIFE — a performance trio composed......

That '70s Vibe: A Night With Linda Perhacs

The cross-genre extravaganza at REDCAT was an inspired gathering of under- and above-ground art stars who came to pay homage to 1970s folksinger, modern-day High Priestess of Yes and Yay, Linda Perhacs. The evening was full of singing, swaying and celebration, but it was just as much an aqueous, psychedelic......
