Thankfully, Studio City has one of the highest concentrations of destination sushi bars in L.A., and has gained a wide variety of seasonal and international restaurants in recent years.

Things to Do in Los Angeles During Comic-Con

Discover Los Angeles

What better way to celebrate the child within all of us than at the extraordinary The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited, on view until September 2 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Brentwood. The exhibition features “more than 100 objects and twenty-five historic puppets—including Kermit the Frog, Rowlf, Ernie and Bert, Grover, and other popular favorites” celebrating the peerless Jim Henson and his world-class team of creators with whom he “created an unparalleled body of work that continues to delight and inspire people of all ages to create a kinder and gentler world.” The traveling exhibition was made possible by the George Lucas Family Foundation and Cheryl Henson. For the Star Wars obsessive, think of it as witnessing the birth of Yoda (we kid—any would be Comic-Conventioneer knows how important Henson and his generation-spanning creations are).

Summer dineL.A. 2018 is upon us, and the food fans among us (this is L.A., it’s everyone) are carefully creating spreadsheets and cross-referencing locations with their friends. It’s important business, deciding which restaurants must be visited during this brief time when every place that's participating is offering a once-in-a-lifetime - well, twice-in-a-year - deal. There are a lot of big name restaurants on the Summer dineL.A. list, but there are some eateries that maybe don’t get as much shine as the famous places - but they’re absolutely great. Be sure to include these hidden gems in your dineL.A. plans.

Plus, this is just a laid-back town. Here are some restaurants participating in Summer dineL.A. this year that will be happy to let you sit on a nice patio with your little love.
