    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.

    Anybody have a good BMW mechanic? Just got a 1994 8 series (my dreamcar pretty much) and would like to get it checked out once I pick the car up tomorrow probably. Ideally he/she works on weekends as well since I'll be super busy during the week. Training is in LMU area but willing to go whereever if the mechanic is good

    From a while ago:



    So I'm going to be working in San Fernando valley but will still need to go to LMU area once to twice a week. The mid-wilshire area does seem like a good option, was able to go to Barneys, RRL and South Willard within a few minutes of each other. Weekday drive would be a bit, but I guess I would be going against traffic to some extent right?

    I've been working in the San Fernando Valley the last couple of months. Staying in the Westside area and commuting there wasn't too bad. Was kind of reverse commute. Although Park La Brea is a bit aways.

    Basically had omakase at mori on saturday night, shit was phenomenal. We rolled up 10 minutes before closing and they served us until half hour past great service from Take-san, told him just serve us whatever you want and ate 20 different pieces of fish along with other accompaniments.

    One of top two sushi experiences I've had.

    how much was the Omakase? Some yelp reviews said it was some mediocre sushi.


    anyways. i totally forgot about the whole foie gras bann and this is the last week to have it. It may be impossible to try to get some. The only place I wanted to get it from was Animal as like i like the style/the ambiance/the feel of the restaurant as oppose to the cliche fancy places like Craft or w/e.

    where else to get it now????? trying to impress here!

    So, I've been wanting to try out Seoul Sausage Co.'s stuff after I read an article about them.

    http://www.seoulsausage.com/

    They never list where they will be on their site or twitter. I wanted to call them but they have no phone number. I emailed them but they never got back to me. They must really hate customers.

    those are good. so is k&L. but particularly with smaller production wines like that, you're better off going here to find a source.

    Their empty "retail" shop has been around for a pretty long while now...don't know when it's gonna open. But FYI it's on Mississippi right off of Sawtelle in West LA.

    Son of a gun yesterday was great.

    Got about 6 or 7 things, all very good.

    The desert was the fucking best, def going back.

    Staff was great including hostess, server and bartender who even let me sample some scotch. Wasn't expecting the level of service we got.

    My Coworker's wife recently opened a great little Vietnamese place on Sawtelle. Just named one of the best in LA by LA Weekly. Angelenos on the west side should give it a try.

    From my experience, Son of a Gun seems like seafood for people who are scared of seafood. If you want everything to taste like mustard sauce and bacon you can find cheaper options.

    yeah, i always prefer the other stuff on the menu to the pho. It's weird that they don't use Vermicelli
