City smackdown: Los Angeles love
Try to find THESE in NYC
Japanese tacos… the Thai Elvis… jousting light sabers with Darth Vader look-alikes on Hollywood Blvd… gray whale watching off the coast of Long Beach…free concerts on the largest church organ in the world… a reasonably priced Akusari body scrub at 3 AM… the pop of Chardonnay corks and the yipping of coyotes during Mahler’s 4th symphony at the Hollywood Bowl… the 22 mile South Bay Bike Trail, which winds from Redondo Beach to Santa Monica… Musso and Frank martinis, so perfect and bracing that Raymond Chandler and William Faulkner ordered them by the pitcher… protesters who exercise their constitutional rights by doing yoga on the city hall lawn… beef tinga topped with habanero-pickled onions and cilantro, cooked and served by former gang members at the Homegirl Cafe… the surreal, homegrown artistry of the Watts Towers…the International Body Surfing Championship… a haunted ocean liner… Jimmy Kimmel live… the oldest pagan apothecary in America… 25 cent Monday movies at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Little Tokyo, Little Armenia, Thai Town, Koreatown. Palm trees in December.
A: You can see them all without a car.
