This Week's Most Commented & Recommended
When you read something you like on LAist, we love it when you hit the "recommend" button, and we love it even more if you put your two cents' worth in the comments. Getting a dialog going with our readers and making sure we're giving you content you can use are top priorities for us. So here's this week's top posts, as endorsed by you via the recommend feature, or as indicated by the level of talk going on in the comments:
This week, two pieces from our newer feature, Eye Nosh, where our Flickr Pool contributors submit shots of their restaurant meals with a mini-review, got everyone talking and tied for the top spot. In fact, food was a hot topic this week, from a Mickey D's knockoff sandwich to an upscale SaMo sports bar.
Eye Nosh: Thai Steak Salad at F.O. II Thus begins the debate on LAist: Is is wrong for the FO folks to not serve ketchup and not let patrons make substitutions? All this from a gorgeous picture of a menu item that doesn't happen to be a burger!
Eye Nosh: There's Hot Dog Somewhere Under That Of course junk food gets its moment in the spotlight in the form of an Original Tommy's chili dog, and the talk lingered like that strange feeling in your stomach after eating a, well, a Tommy's chili dog.
Getting Closer to the Westside: Subway, Bus, Aerial, Nothing? In getting ready for another round of public meetings, we take a look again at some of the propositions before the MTA for making transit on the Westside better for everyone.

Anonymous Protests in Hollywood & Downtown Locals protests put on by the folks in the masks prime the pump for this weekend's worldwide protests against the Church of Scientology.
South in Santa Monica: Good Times A visit to a new eatery turns out to be a pleasant surprise, and nets us some food porn shots (hello, chicken & waffle sliders?).
A Forgettable Game... At Least There Were Boobs Malingering took the day off work to watch this game that, according to her "sucked balls." However, her grandpa was on hand to help her find the boobs, which of course made it on her camera. That's what we call taking one for the team around here.
