Sup NT, I'm heading to L.A. for an annual Toyota Fest event on held on Saturday May 12. I will be arriving on Friday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning. Can you guys tell me where the spots are in terms of:

1. Hang outs/Lounges
2. Clubs (preferrably hip hop/house/drum bass)
3. Fancy Restaurants
4. Site seeing/tourist spots (Except for all the major theme parks)


All your help is appreciated. Thanks!

Check out Mai Tai bar down in Long Beach by Shoreline Drive. Reggae band on Friday nights, cheap drinks, chill atmosphere.
You can also check out the Yard House and Aquarium around that area.

When I have out of towners come in, I usually take the group out to the Melting Pot either in Irvine or Pasadena.

From Ehrlich to Keynes, we know what's up.

The Melting Pot looks very appealing, we will definitely have to keep that one in mind for either Friday or Saturday night. Thanks!

if you hit up the melting pot, its extremely important that you make a reservation in advance. even with reservations i end up waiting like 30-45 min. I never tried nor plan on trying to go without a res. im too fat to wait that long to eat.

some spots that i like (might not necesarily be celeb sightings spots though)

Table 8 on Melrose
Doug Arango's in W. Hollywood
Cobras and Matadors (tapas joint near the Grove... kinda)
Hungry Cat (specialize in raw shellfish if youre into that... its on Hollywood and Vine - I guess you could call it pseudo celebrity watching, last time i was there Marlon Wayans was gettin busy with some buttaface (but smokin body) chick, Kirsten Dunst was sittin at the table next to us)

There are tons more. A buncha good spots to eat on La Cienega, N. of Wilshire (like Lawrys, Stinking Rose, Fogo de Chao, etc...) Also check out restaurants in some of the nicer LA hotels, I think Asia de Cuba is at the Mondrian. If you're into good sushi theres a handful of top notch sushi joints.

mastros has the best damn bone in ribeye in LA. and last time i went to the location in beverly hills there must have been someone famous inside eating since the restaurant staff were trying to push aside all these paprazzi with cameras away from the entrance doors so people could go in and out of the restaurant.
