When you need a SERIOUS cake, this is the place to go. They've consistently maintaine d a very high quality through the years. Cakes can be pricey, but well worth it for special occassions. They also sell by the slice, so it's easy to sample a slice or two before committing to a cake for anything.
This is one computer store where you know you are going to get correct information and good advice from the staff working there. They are always helpful in finding what you need. Only downside is having to wait for someone to help you, but luckily, there is enough to browse and kill a few minutes.
You won't find a better theater than this, with maybe the exception of an IMAX (and that's just because of the screen). The stadium seating at the Grove is so comfortable, and the new way they set up concessions so you can order on touch screen and pick them up really beats standing and waiting in line.
The fresh baked meat and potato pastries, as are the sweets. If you bring in a box of this stuff to the office, you'll be the new hero. The lines can get long and the wait even for a couple of things will be a few minutes, so give yourself plenty of time when you make a trip out there.
Cool place to go and get a custom blend or get some cologne or perfum for a loved one. Took my girlfriend there and she still raves about the scent she got. They also have some gift items.
This museum is world class. in what feels like a large warehouse or airport hangar, you get a truly close look at all aspects of D Day and the war. Seeing the "exhibits" is a very moving experience. As you go from room to room, there are also small theaters which have different short films that are not to be missed.
This is probably one of the better places to go in LA if you're a poker player. The rooms are huge and they have alot of tables so not alot of waiting. The bar is a nice hangout. The staff (especially the dealers) are very friendly.
The poker room here is pretty good, although still not as good as Bicycle Club. It is a good place to go if you want to play poker and bet the races simultaneously. Word of advice: no matter how much you love the woman, don't let her drag you upstairs to the bingo parlor. Although the view overlooking the track is great, the game is painful to play.
If you're going to buy a Saturn, you're in luck. The "no-haggle" thing makes the whole experience so much easier. And the people up at Saturn of the Valley are so friendly and knowledgeable. They have a good inventory of cars in stock. And the whole process - including credit checks and paperwork - was done in under an hour. Probably a car-buying record. I highly recommend this place.
This was one of the worst car-shopping experiences I have ever had. First, the cars don't fit all in one lot. So if you want to see or test drive a car that isn't there, you have to drive down the street to one of their other lots. Also, the salespeople are beyond pushy. The old "let me talk to my manager and see what I can do" dog and pony show gets old really fast. Also, after you leave, they will literally call you a dozen times. We had half a dozen messages on our home phone the week after we visited, and we had promptly purchased a car elsewhere. When we finally did answer and said, "No thank you, we purchased elsewhere," the guy on the phone actually told us, "Well under California law you can take it back within a month, don't you want to give us another chance?"
