Besides shows, bars, hiking, artwalk, farmers markets, and derby dolls?

Haven't tried the artwalk yet, I'll try to catch that next month. Anyone seeing BSS next week? Never heard of derby dolls until now.

Depends on what you're looking for. Low/high brow?

I heard Milk was decent but I tend not to go to hyped places around WeHo unless it's been vetted by the lobster.

Welcome to Los Angeles. First time in the neighborhood?

I want to get something tailored right for once. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Go to Rudy's tailor on sunset blvd. Everything is hand done. When you walk in all you see is Attolini's, Borrelli's and so on. It in the back of sunset plaza right behind La Petit. Ask for Rudy. Amazing work!

I thought Milk was really really overrated. Cupcakes were TERRIBLE, shakes are good, but nothing mindblowing and a bit on the pricier side for a milkshake.

For good desserts I'd check out the bakery at Bottega Louie. Nearly everything I've tried has been pretty awesome, croissants, macaroons, tarts, cookies.

Derby Dolls roll once a month, near downtown.

^ I've been wanting to stop by Bottega Louie since I always see it while hitting downtown bars. They seem to be open pretty late. I catch shows when they come around and don't like bars that much but hiking sounds good. Haven't done any in L.A. besides the hollywood sign, will look up others. There's a pretty fun hike near azusa canyon with a steep water jump. Bridge to Nowhere is pretty good, you can watch people bungee jumping once you get to the bridge.

I've got a few spots for desserts, but typically it's simple and/or not a "dessert" spot. 101 Coffee Shop's waffle brownie sundae is pretty legit, Masa has good bread pudding, even though they don't bake anything on-site Alcove's cake/pie selection can be pretty awesome. I rarely think "nicer" restaurants have good desserts since it's more about appearance than taste. Firefly is South Pas is probably closest to looks good/tastes good. Everyone else's dessert menu feels like a dime a dozen.

I go hiking quite a bit. The San Gab/San Bern trails can be good, too, like the Mt.Lowe trail that starts off in Altadena, follows the old electric train rail, and ends up at the top at a burned down resort. Or for something quick, Franklin Canyon Park. I'd also recommend trails around the Santa Monica mtns. since they're usually empty and really pretty:

Heeeeyy... If it isn't Big Daddy himself. Long time no see! Yeah, the waffle is unreal.
post #238 of 2328
Yeah, not a lot of free time these days. Another dessert worth trying, if off the beaten path, is the maple coconut bread pudding at Good Girl Dinette in Highland Park. The Chicken Pot Pie is pretty good, too.

I forgot about this, their macaroons are all kinds of delicious, the tea is actually good too. Great staff and bar scene.
