    Forgot Confederacy, it's worth a look on the way to Silverlake. I've actually never found anything I wanted to buy at Mohawk General Store but I like the shop.

    Ron Herman in West Hollywood and Fred Segal Santa Monica are actually both pretty good. I'm not into RRL but it's worth a look, pretty cool shop there. There's an APC right down the road on Melrose as well. Maison Martin Margiela in Beverly Hills is a good stop.

    I find the Barney's in Beverly Hills and the Grove to have pretty poor stock.

    Ron Herman in west hollywood is decent, quite a bit larger than I expected. Fred segal in Hollywood is quite awful though, hit up the one in santa monica instead.

    Totally forgot about APC, if you do go to APC walk up the street to Melrose Place to Santa Maria Noiovella, great shop and someone mentioned Barneys, I think the Barneys in BH has a good selection as does the new Bloomingdales in Santa Monica.

    Can anyone rec a beach that's relatively uncrowded? I'll be staying in Pasadena, but willing to drive as far as Malibu maybe.

    I thought Will Rogers in Santa Monica was nice last time I was there - big and spacious with decent sand. I heard it was a gay beach, but didn't see any presence of it.

    Playa del Rey. Not dockweiler, but just go to downtown playa del rey and there's a beach there, you can walk along the water way and even into Marina del Rey...nice walking path. its not super nice like the other beaches though, but its relatively uncrowded.

    my favorite is Manhattan Beach, but it is crowded but you can walk along the strand to an uncrowded portion (except this weekend since its 6-man).

    I know there is a list at the beginning of this thread but I'm going to make an updated one that we can all add to.

    I think a food list by either category (Mexican, Japanese, etc.) or by location would be really useful as well. Should I start the food one by type or local? I think type would be most useful.

    both would be useful, but i'll go with type since location would be better shown on google maps. speaking of which, are they ever going to add filters?
