Here are some fun things you should definitely try to eat too during your visit :)

Seek out the Sprinkles ATM and Sprinkles Ice Cream shoppe next door - you won't be disappointed!

Head to Guisados and grab the taco sampler.

Tsujita LA Artisan Noodles Annex has the best tsukemen (dipping noodles) in town!

Last but not least, if you're hungry and on the go, MOZZA2GO is a faster alternative than the sit down Pizzeria Mozza and you'll get to taste one of the best pies in town.

Greenblatt's Deli-Restaurant And Fine Wine Shop for their toasted Reuben and New York cheesecake.  Mercado Los Angeles and Umami Burger were good for casual dinner and cocktails. Chateau Marmont has a good cocktail and wine list.

The best place we visited in LA was the Frederick R Weisman Art Foundation in Beverly Hills.  Although it was a little tricky to make reservations (very cloak and dagger about its location, where to park, secret password, etc.), once we had made the reservations and received confirmation, we were able to park inside the gates of a gorgeous, furnished, 1920s Beverly Hills villa, which was purchased by Weisman as a showcase for his personal collection of 20th century art.  A very knowledgeable docent leads the tour of less than 10 people through Weisman's home which has not been changed since he lived there. On display are more than 400 works of art by Cezanne, Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro, de Kooning and Rothko. Everything about the half-day we spent enjoying the home's location and architecture, its art, our small group and a true education in modern art was truly a delight.

Hands down, the La Brea Tar Pits. Right in the middle of a concrete metropolis that seems so geologically dead, you have a reminder of humanity's tiny role in the planet's history. You have a site that still disgorges reminders of Earth's past, and still has scientists groping for clues.

You can eat tacos and see art hanging and go to beaches just about anywhere. La Brea Tar Pits, though, are a rarity. They are such an amazing contrast with all that surrounds them. Have a look and think about what you're seeing.
