I love Farmer's Market (Fairfax & 3rd). And Both the Getty and the Getty Villa are great, if you haven't had your fill of museums.
Also, just as a warning, Hollywood will still probably be a bit of a mess, due to post-Oscars craziness -- I don't think H'wood Blvd. will open again till Tuesday, which means traffic will continue to suck worse than usual.
Eat at Roscoe's and tell me if it's better than Hawkin's Place. I have a friend who's never had Hawkin's and I've never had Roscoe's, and you would help us settle our argument. Assuming you're not a vegetarian.
We skipped the Magritte, under the theory that we can go again to the museum. We also skipped the tarpits, as we were pretty walked-out.
Did see Lucifer though. Not as wild about it, frankly. Musculature doesn't match the pose (he's weirdly clenched
And yeah, museum of jurassic technology is pretty damn sweet. It's about 15 blocks from here, so we walked. The only problem was that it was damn crowded and full of hipsters who wouldn't stop sniggering about everything. Yeah, we get it, about half of the stuff is specious (but not all of it), but sometime the silent appreciation of a joke well-rendered is better than having some dipshit point out how funny it's supposed to be.
But I'd like to find more things like that to do in LA while I'm here for the week.
Aside from that, it's all been about great food from tiny vendors and shit. (Oh, and I am vegetarian, so I don't think the Chicken and Waffles will happen, no matter how much I love Tapeheads.)
The newly remodeled Planetarium up on top of Griffith Park.
Hermosa Beach (my home town, and probably the sweetest beach town there, although none of it is like it was when I was growing up). The Bottle Inn on 22nd St. should have some food that you could eat. Good Italian.

Oh man, this would have ruined it for me. I only know MJT from the website, and it seems really beautiful to me- dreamlike, like a Guy Maddin movie or a Brothers Quay animation. People treating it like a cheap joke would likely have made me very surly.
