Pink’s Famous Chili Dogs
Drive by this famous hotdog stand at nearly any time of the day or night, and you’re likely to spot a lineup of assorted Los Angelians waiting to place an order for a hot, juicy sausage wrapped in a soft white bun. In this city known for its affinity to green salads and tofu, isn’t this a bit odd? Ah, but that’s the best part about it. These dogs are packed with fat and flavor, and they seem to illustrate the point that we all need to indulge now and then. And Pink’s has been happy to supply the goods since 1939, when Paul Pink parked his hot dog wagon and set up shop. So why not stop by and see what all the fuss is about? A chili dog will set you back a whole $2.40, and besides - a trip to L.A. just wouldn’t be complete without it! Fun, fun.
House of Blues on the Sunset Strip
So we’ve sent you to the Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, and now we’re going to recommend that you check out the Hollywood version of the HOB. Mmm-hmm, child, that’s right. Ya’ll need to haul your behind out of bed on Sunday morning and head on down to the Sunset Strip to the most jammin’ gospel session in the state, with more love and “amen’s” than a hundred church choirs put together. The best bands show up here, so you’re in for a real treat, from Al Green to the Blind Boys of Alabama, the show is always superb. And did we mention the food? Oh, darlin’. There’s heaps of spicy shrimp and baskets of flaky biscuits and cheddar cheese grits galore… more than you can possibly fit in, we’re willing to bet.
Mann’s Chinese Theatre
So this just might be the most-visited spot in Los Angeles, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go! Just once in your life, you need to stand with the one you love in front of this quintessential Hollywood icon and walk along the famous handprints that have captured a star-struck moment in concrete… go ahead, stand over Marilyn’s little print and indulge in a big, wet smooch. Better yet, go all the way and actually see a movie in the theatre. The screen is enormous, and the atmosphere is truly unlike anything you can find anywhere else. So be a tourist for a few hours and have a blast doing it!
