Sorting through my three-week-tall stack of mail, I picked out Los Angeles Magazine’s August issue because 1. I needed something to write about and 2. I’m a sucker for “Best Of” issues. Fortunately for me, our (extended) neighborhood was reasonably well represented. The honorees:
Best Mexican Breakfast: El Huarachito in Lincoln Heights. I’ve been dying for chilaquiles so I may try this spot this morning.
Best Newly Remodeled Library: Arroyo Seco Regional Branch Library. I really love the architecture and interior space of this spot. My only gripe is the magazine’s reference to the design as “early-20th-century Craftsman” when my understanding is it is really influenced by El Alisal.
Best Hip Kids’ Clothing: Rocking Kid Show in Eagle Rock. I can’t say much about this spot as I don’t have kids (and if I did I probably wouldn’t dress them in skinny jeans and Ramones/Blondie Tshirts, but unto each their own…)
