Los Angeles, From the Outside-In

Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

We here at LAist know that without tourists, well, Los Angeles would be a city with far fewer Cheesecake Factory restaurants. But the nameless, camera-toting visitors to our city have their own opinions and thoughts about the City of Angels.

This is just one of those opinions, as overheard at the Lucky Strike bowling alley at the Hollywood & Highland complex.

Him: So, what do you think of Los Angeles?
Her: Seems sort of plastic to me.
Him: Plastic?
Her: Yeah. You know...It smells weird when you burn it.
Him: Who's burning something?
Her: Who's NOT burning something.
