The age of functional internet only meant one thing: online social platforms.

Forget about Disney.com, CartoonNetwork.com, and EverythingGirl.com. You can interact with REAL people. ONLINE. AND THE BEST PART? You can be whoever you want to be. Look however you want to be. And BE whoever you want to be.

These are the best places (that I have tried) in Los Angeles to eat or drink.
