    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I wasn't intending to post on this thread to talk clothing, rather more about food. But, we are a recent affiliate vendor and our shop is located about 15 mins from LAX.

    8568 Washington Blvd
    Culver City

    I think it depends on where you are staying. The game is at the Rose Bowl, so out there you do have Mohawk General, they have a lot of nice stuff. If you have a car, that will obviously help with how much you can get around. Someone suggested Abot Kinney and that's a good call cause you'll have a bunch of stores and restaurants all on one street.

    Nope. But Jet is right, Venice is only about 10-15 minutes away sans traffic. If it's not too late to change your hotel, do it. NOTHING to do/see by the airport

    Yeah ditto what these guys are saying... The area immediately around LAX is meh. Head 15 minutes in almost any direction and you'll come away much happier with your LA experience.

    Can you guys recommend some dope places around the greater LA or OC area that can accommodate vegans? I'm willing to go as far up as the calabasas area. Preferably a semi to quiet area so conversations can take place. Only parameter from me is no sushi, only cooked foods.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cafe Gratitude in Larchmont Village and Flore Vegan in Silverlake are my favorites.

    Reviving the thread since it's dineLA been pretty disappointing so far

    Had spago tonight and what a joke. Probably the most uninspired meal I've had in a while. Plus they seated us 20 minutes late (although every restaurant has been late by at least 10 min). Also bartender was a fucking asshole, I ask him what bourbons they have he says they have all so I give him about 5 and he doesn't know the bourbon or doesn't have it. He then says he has Hudson but I say I don't want it just give me a double black label and just a little bit of ice. Fucker pours the smallest double I've ever seen then says wow that's a lot of whisky you sure you don't need more ice? Unbelievable attitude and service. And he freaking asked me for ID then acted like it was fake. Yes I'm not 40 in a fused suit and square toe shoes like everyone else in the bar but still kinda unbelievable. I don't mind getting asked for ID as I'm 23 but still can't believe him. Thinking back shouldn't have given him a tip at all

    Not funny, what a waste of $350

    Also fucking oysters shucked terribly and tasted old as fuck and parts of shell in two of them. I don't expect that much but damn I just don't get it

    Maybe it's just dine LA since I went to French place I always go to and it was first time they messed up food and seating but still

    Complain to management about the service. I had a bad experience at Mastro's in BH and was give a gift card to come back and dine on their dime. Dropped about $350 also.

    I live near the Cafe Gratitude in Venice. The food is OK, but the mandatory serving of sanctimonious faux spirituality makes me choke. In my head, my answer to the "question of the day" is always: "Fuck you."

    Recently ate at Sage, which was decent. Not a huge fan of Feed on Abbott Kinney (not terrible, just mediocre with poor service), but if definitely accommodates vegans.
