LA: A Mecca for Food and Art
When it comes to being an Angeleno, there are some certainties we can always rely on to be true: AM and PM rush hours, overpriced soy lattes, smog-shrouded skies and dejected sofas sprinkled along sidewalks.
But wait: not all truisms are bad, as proven by the 9 million proud people crowding up this crazed city of ours. LA has always been defined as a destination for dreams and desires, so it comes as no surprise that it is also known to be a mecca for both foodies and art aficionados alike. We won't argue that we do it better than our east coast counterparts, but we will say that LA's role in the latest food and art culture trends is one that can be imitated, but surely never duplicated.
Galleries are for the Bourgeois
