Things to see and do in LA?

hey, I’m gonna be in LA for the first time in late August…

what should I check out???

I’m really into mod design and what not, furniture, pop art…

any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

(THEY DONT ALL HAVE TO BE ART/DESIGN RELATED…HEH)

Go check out Art Center in Pasadena. def worth seeing

www.standardhotel.com

check out the Downtown rooftop bar, go in the afternoon since it might be hard to get into at night… awesome view. And the chocolate cake in their lemon yellow cafe downstairs just rocks.
the Hollywood location would give you a chance to check out the strip as well as the Mondrian and other ‘designerly’ hotels

for high-end furniture showrooms, travel along Melrose (THE shopping street) past the Pacific Design Center, I think around the Beverly/Melrose intersection is where you’ll see them… also the Ivy is right around the corner - good restaurant for spotting celebrities

for those $5 Gucci sunglasses and Prada knock-offs go to Santi Alley downtown - subway is easier for this one

have fun!
