    I think 3Sixteen in DTLA Arts District is the only place now. I'm not sure what sizes they have - you should call them or email to find out. Mohawk General Store used to stock some but they haven't carried any in a while.

    Thanks. Want to check out the new 3Sixteen space when I'm in town anyway.

    does anyone have a recommendation for a reliable tailor in the south bay area (torrance, the beach cities)?

    ideally, i hope it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. having lived in nyc, i'm used to getting the sleeves (non-functional buttons) and hems shortened for about $40-50, but i heard some of the places in south bay could cost upwards $100-$150 dollars...

    Any house owners in Los Angeles County? Just bought a home in Westchester and I am trying to figure out how to register and pay for trash. I can't fin it anywhere. Or maybe it isn't clearly stated like Water, Electric, and Gas.

    $100 to hem trousers is absurd.


    Probably LADWP, they handle municipal waste services for most of LA.
    Sorry, I think I've always reached then theough the LADWP website but technically it's the Sanitation Dept. try here https://www.lacitysan.org/san/faces...3216867926&_afrWindowMode=0&_afrWindowId=null

    for my properties, the trash fees are included in the property tax and the city/county collects them every week without the need for additional registration or fees.

    Ah. That sounds right. Good. Then I won't need to do anything.

    No personal experience but for what it's worth I did a bit of research on this fairly recently, and somewhat to my SF elitist surprise a guy with a shop in the Westside Pavilion got consistently excellent reviews. Would have used him if I'd ended up having it done locally.

    Going to LA in a few weeks, wanna book some places we haven't tried yet. Is Tar & Roses as good as the reviews say? Also looking at Hamasaku for their omakase and maybe Republique.

    T&R is pretty good. Have only been to Republique for brunch - cool space and amazing pastries.

    Is La Reyna still open? Yelp says its close. That can't be right.

    I think that just means it's closed right now. Only open in the evenings.

    I live like 7 minutes away from Howlin Rays but the 2 times I've been around there, the line is just WAY too crazy. Is a damn chicken sandwich worth a ~2 hour wait?

    If it's a weekend you have to go before opening or go during the weekday in the middle of the afternoon. It's Los Angeles, there's a line for anything that's hyped up.

    Last time I was there the line looked crazy so I got pok pok but the line moved very fast. I should have waited for Ray's.
