Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

AMC's smash hit drama Mad Men's fourth season is in full swing, and while the show is set in New York, it's filmed out here. You can sometimes spot where the characters are dining, meeting, shopping or imbibing on the show as a familiar location (Cole's, for example). But if you want to live like a real Mad Man or Madame, the Huffington Post has put together a list of 12 places where you can trade today for yesteryear in the comfort of your own city.Their pics for spots where you can "Drink Like Draper" include dim-lit and dark-paneled watering holes like Seven Grand, The Thirsty Crow, and The Varnish. If you're ready to be dazzled decades-ago style and "Swoon Like Peggy," check out Musso & Frank Grill, Millennium Biltmore Hotel, and Cicada. Need some vintage chic to hug those curves? To "Wear Joan's Threads," browse the racks at Swift Vintage Shoppe & Sewing and Playclothes. Gentlemen, you can "Style Like Sterling" at Everything's Jake, The Shave Beverly Hills, Bar Keeper, and The Rose Bowl Flea Market.

Of course, there's no category for where to pout like Betty or take off your shoes like Bertram Cooper...we trust you can figure those out on your own.
