I am travelling with my husband and 10 month old in September to LA for three days. We are in our early to mid 30s, are into alternative/grunge music and love to eat at great cafes - ones that are hip but not overly expensive, trendy but welcoming (we will likely need to fit a foldable pram or need a high chair) and serve great, yummy food. We love wholesome veggie based meals, but also LOVE burgers and shakes and would love to taste our way around LA. .......We love the scene in Pulp Fiction 'Jack Rabbit Slim's' and I would love to know if there is a place that has that kind of American Diner vibe in LA?
We will be staying in Hollywood and will not have a car. We will be relying on trains, buses or hop on/hop off buses to get around.
We are also looking at using at least one of the days to shop (maybe at The Grove? - is there a better mall or outdoor shopping strip?) but would prefer to find some bargains. Any ideas?
What is the best way to find out if there are any bands playing in LA in early Sept?
