LA’s best hotel lobbies
Ever just want to relax somewhere comfortable, grab a drink, and enjoy some views? That’s the idea with the hotel lobby, a place for waiting travelers — and anyone sneaking in off the street — to enjoy a bit of respite, and LA Mag has decided to chronicle them all. Well, the best ones anyway, include The Chateau Marmont, Casa Del Mar, and The Line Hotel in Koreatown.
Is Pavich’s Pizza making a comeback?
Look at this signage sent along by the folks at Food GPS showing an inbound Pavich’s Pizza landing across from Santa Monica College at Pico and 17th. A former Pavich’s lasted for years in San Pedro but has since been renamed Burattino Brick Oven Pizza, leading to some obvious speculation that this could be a new location for the company, though it’s unconfirmed as of now.
Oktoberfest goes down at Wursthaus

Expect pig, salad, sides, and dessert, plus drinks from Strand Brewing Co.
The Park’s Finest lights it up
One of the city’s best modern barbecue restaurants is getting into the glow thanks to a new sign out front. Formerly the long-running Historic Filipinotown spot only had some vinyl signage hung, so this bright new addition is a welcome one.
