Moving to Santa Monica next week, suggestions ? - Page 3

post #31 of 43
on Tuesdays I like to go to the Brig on Abbott Kinney (more venice but pretty close to you). They do this cool live band with a DJ scratching, it gets pretty crowded and is a good vibe.

Yeah I'm in Inglewood so the trip to South Bay isn't bad at all. I like that location because it has two basketballs courts, one has refs which is cool. And if I don't feel like playing but wanna work on my terrible jumper I usually can do so. If not balling I go to Howard Hughes which is also nice.

nothing really to recommend but you certainly picked the right city for the LA area.

I've been there a few times; pretty good, but I just have a short and simple cut... had it done by Rick Harrison. I'm not sure how they do with more complicated cuts. My female friends in the area like going to Studio DNA, but I've never seen a guy getting a cut there the times I've sat waiting there.

I go to Floyd's all the time. Its not a professional salon but for guys, its good and not too expensive. Pretty consistently good cuts everytime I've gone to various locations. 21 bucks for a cut.

Ive been checking out a lot of your guys' recommendations - having a great time so far.. glad that its finally cooling off a bit! Went for burgers in brentwood market foodcourt.. some drinks at the roosterfish, abbot kinney festival, a bit of 3rd st, drove by Fred Seigel - I need to go back when i have some time... Was out on Montana today doing some poking around.. Finding a decent apartment here isnt going very well so far.. hope to find something soon. Does anyone know where I could get a quality hair clipper set ? Like Oster clippers or something ? I checked out CVS and bestbuy but they just have shitty ones.. Also, anyone know where to get Anthony skincare products around here? Maybe i need to just start ordering my stuff online. Thanks!
