Check out the Carmageddon Food Deals and Events! – Updated

Disaster is coming to Los Angeles. In ten days, the 405 highway will be closed for 48 hours between the 10 and the 101 freeways. In other words, there will be hella hella gridlock.

Dining at Hollywood’s Boho, Version 2.0

Here in Hollywood, the most revered movie theater is not Grauman’s Chinese Theater but instead the Arclight Cinemas on nearby Sunset Boulevard.

Image from Thrillist Someone — actually a friend of Malibu Judie’s, specifically — came up with the brilliant idea of rolling up a whole butt-load of sushi into a “burrito,” and I can assuredly say that I WANT IT.
