Los Angeles

Spencer from Los Angeles asked

What would be on your top-100 list of things to do in L.A.?

I'm making a top-100 list of things to do in L.A., similar in scope to this on-going life list​ I have. It'll probably be more like a top 125 list, because I want to include things I've done, like Hollywood Bowl, the Greek, and so on. But I'm looking for inspiration. Think big, like hang gliding, to smaller things, like a particular meal (or cocktail) at a particular restaurant (or bar).

Los Angeles (California)

Hi Spencer!

That's a lofty question!

For specific food items, peruse Jonathan Gold's "99 Things to Eat in L.A. Before you Die" article. His last edition was written five years ago, but since so many classic SoCal restaurants are featured, many are still open and still serving. For example: Langer's Hot Pastrami; Kogi's Kalbi Taco; and Ivy's Corn Chowder (I'd recommend their chili too!).

I'd also add: Get scrubbed silly at a Korean spa.
