While driving back to Los Angeles after a trip up north a few years ago, I tuned into KNX to get traffic conditions for the best route back into town. A report came in: there is a couch in lanes. I couldn’t wait for those six minutes to go by to hear the next report: two car accident at the couch in lanes. (This is one reason I LOVE LOVE LOVE Los Angeles traffic reports.) Couches and mattresses seem to be very hard to dispose of for most people. But honestly, how hard is it to call 311 and schedule a bulky item pickup? I have to admit, I do like the recycle mentality: you can put stuff on the sidewalk or in the alley and if the item is decent, it will be gone within the day, sometimes within a couple of hours. But if it’s not gone, you can’t let it hang out for months, rotting in the elements. You know who you are and you can’t camouflage the rotting sofa with a Christmas Tree in January. We see them both. Do your civic duty.
Speaking of mattresses, I’m a great sleeper. I’m an early to bed early to rise kinda gal. However, there are times when I’m out with the husband, seeing a movie or going to a lecture, and we want to eat afterward. This can be very tricky and annoying in Los Angeles. If it is past 9:30 there just aren’t that many choices. (I know there are plenty of Denny’s to go around, but really, after you’ve seen Harry Shearer talking to Al Gore, Moons Over My Hammy® is not going to cut it.) For late dining there is Canter’s, Kate Mantilini and Swingers. (Please tell me how wrong I am, please, with great detail and addresses and menus in the comments section, please!) Why can’t decent, interesting, good restaurants stay open past 10? Is there no night life in Los Angeles? What gives?Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
