Paper Mag's L.A. - Z
The Gotham-centric Paper magazine runs a feature in the February 2005 issue that gives their guide of the "hottest restaurants, bars, clubs and shops in the city of angels" and it's actually not half bad. While they seem to be searching for all the things they love in New York in Los Angeles -- they have more than a little obsession with gangsters (of the mob kind not the neighborhood ones with which we're familiar) and finding designer gear -- they do happen on some spots around town that we're ashamed to say we didn't know about.
Supreme is a skate shop on Fairfax that has its own indoor half pipe and we've missed it until now. That seems unthinkable. The bigger question though is how we've never been to The Smell. We fashion ourselves as local music afficianados and yet we're ashamed to say this is the first we're hearing of the all-ages venue. Maybe we need to spend a little more time further down the radio dial at KXLU.
