The LA Alternative Press chimes in with its annual best of L.A. list, and it's kinda hilarious.Best Neighborhood? Los Feliz. Best local politician? Tom LaBonge. Best public park? Griffith Park. Best event? Sunset Junction. Best Musical venue? The Echo... with Spaceland as the runner-up. Best bookstore? Skylight on Vermont.
