You like us... you really like us! Highland Park has been on the up-and-up and people have taken notice. In a recent article, Conde Nast gave York Blvd. in Highland Park some major street cred, and decidedly said it's a great alternative to Silver Lake. (Apparently, they feel Silver Lake is "overrun with tourists and hipsters.")

They highlight restaurants like The York for a delightful gastropub menu (that includes Sriracha wings), Scoops for artisanal ice cream, and Sonny's Hideaway for "1920s handcrafted cocktails that are wonderfully heavy on the bourbon."

Thanks for the reminder, Conde Nast. We might just have to visit all these places over the weekend!
