LA

I'm planning on going to LA in 2 weeks, July 29th-30th. On the way from Arizona, I plan on stopping by Casino Morongo to have some fun, then off to LA. Is there any thing I should see or do while in LA; any good clubs/restaurants/malls?

Wow, there's a lot you can do in L.A. First of all, not sure if Morongo is the best Casino. IMHO, I think if you stopped off at Pachanga you'll have a better time. It's 10x bigger and has more games to play. Unforntunately, it's no where close to Morongo, so I'm not sure if your travels will take you that way.

As far as L.A., there are tourist things to do and then there are the "city regular" things to do.

Tourist attractions:
Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Hollywood Blvd (Chinese Mann theatre, Hollywood stars walk, Hollywood and Highland shopping center, etc.), Santa Monica Pier, and of course, the beach!

Other "city regular" attractions:
Restaurants - AOC, Jiraffe, Little Red Door (romantic spot), Chaya, Crustacean, Spagos, Mortons, Ruth's Chris, Lawry's, ... the list can go on forever.

Clubs - LAX, Basque, Vanguard, White Lotus, etc.

Malls - 3rd Street Promenade (outdoor shopping), Beverly Center, South Coast Plaza (Irvine), Melrose (eclectic shopping district), etc.

While you're here, if you're a fan of a show, try to see if you can get tickets to a live filming. I think Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel tickets are easy to get. Or, if you're a Dodger fan, catch a Dodger game. Or you can go to the Laugh Factory for some stand up comedy acts, or check out what shows are going on at the Pantages theatre.

Pechanga also has Club Silk for drinking and dancing.

aphall's list is pretty good. I am not that big of a fan of Vanguard but Sasha Singleton is hot. For shopping there is also Rodeo Drive and The Grove.

Rodeo and The Grove... of course! Forgot about those places. Also, Hunter's suggestion for sushi is good. There's also a sushi place called Matsuhisa on La Cienga Blvd that's really good. Even though I've listed all those clubs, the only one I've actually been to is White Lotus. Heh... I'm getting to old for the clubbing scene. There's a Korean club called La Prieve that's pretty good as well, but don't know if you'll be able to get in unless you know a waiter.

clubs...like most of the trip depends on you...what kinda music do u like...do u want to go to the touristy spots...right now is perfect for the beach...daytime to see people...night time and watch the sunset...if ur going to morongo i say only stay for a bit check out the outlets cause thats the only other thing thats close to morongo..but if ur going just for the weekend, your gonna be squeezing alot in those days =\

Brace yourself for the LA traffic and LA drivers, homie!

As for clubs, I recommend Club Mayan. It's perhaps one of the best venues in LA but it also depends on how well you can tolerate its music for the night. Mayan has bleachers with beds for you to sit/lay on while high off of E mixed with PCP, heroin, and a dash of cocaine. If you go to big clubs make sure you get there early. Wait lines are ridiculous.
