IlCaffé Is a European Café Right in DTLA

I recommend you try it out. The gibraltar is to die for. On a recent Saturday afternoon, while on my way to the Fashion District to shop, I wanted a caffeine pick-me-up. As I walked down South Broadway in the direction of the Ace Hotel, I happened upon a coffeehouse called IlCaffé.

Viewing Yoshitomo Nara's work feels like walking back in time to my 1970s childhood. The artist listened to the same British and American rock music that I did growing up. The albums he was most influenced by are on display in his retrospective show now on exhibition at LACMA.

Even During the Pandemic, Road Rage Has Been a Problem in L.A. What Happens Now Traffic's Increasing Again?

Los Angeles entered the orange tier on April 5th, which means traffic will start to get bad again. With more traffic comes more road rage. Already during a rush-hour traffic jam in L.A. on April 6th, an angry woman pointed a gun at people, threatening to kill them. This may only be the beginning of even more road-rage incidents in Los Angeles.

As a San Pedro Resident, I'm Glad a Dad Who Killed His Two Sons Here Got 212 Years in Prison

The port of Los Angeles in San Pedro is a place where families usually go to have fun. Before the pandemic hit, people would take their kids there to watch the "Dancing Fountains" at Gateway Plaza near where the cruise ships docked. Families still come to this waterfront today to picnic near the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. Or they grab a shrimp dinner at Ports O' Call Village, overlooking the water.

I’ve Always Prefered “Feminine” Men — Now I Know Why

Studies show women with compassionate partners who help out with the household chores are happier. Recently I stumbled upon several studies that indicate women prefer “feminine” men as mates. A 2010 experiment conducted by Faceresearch.org, the online psychology laboratory of the Face Research Laboratory at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, found that women in Europe and the U.S. rated men with feminine faces to be more attractive. That is — men with slender, softer features.
