LA Greater Area

Michelin Stars back on LA restaurant scene

Wonho Frank Lee

In case you missed it, the Michelin Guide is back for the
first time in years, with a new all-California book honoring a galaxy of one-
and two-star restaurants (sorry, no threes). Does it reflect our vibrant food
scene? Does it matter? You decide.

Tracking down autumn

No, you don’t need a day trip to find glowing fall foliage in
these parts. There are plenty of places  splashed with autumn hues right here in LA
County – and more less than two hours away. Time to leaf summer behind.

Cinespia creeps you out

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

There’s no place like a
cemetery to get the full impact of a truly horrifying film experience. So rev
up your inner chainsaw for the last event of the Cinespia season at the
Hollywood Forever Cemetery. And remember: it’s only a movie.

Get your oompah on at SoCal’s oldest Oktoberfest

For its 51st anniversary,
the Alpine Village is moving things out of the tent and back to the bier hall.
Soak up German brews, food, and music by the Haderlumpen band direct from the
Old Country. There’s even a kid-friendly version on Sundays. Prost!

The 80-foot waterfall, the cliffside restaurant, the “library” in the redwoods. There are plenty of incredible spots to check out during your road trip to wild-and-beautiful Big Sur, but here are five absolute must-stops.

Oh my gourd!

Fall fashion: Getups for guys

The surprise shuttering of Unionmade in San Francisco left fashion-forward men reeling. Where to get that canvas jacket, the leather accessories, the vintage denim? Not to worry dapper dudes, you can keep your duds from looking dated at these eight alternative menswear stores.
