Charles Bukowski

A Literary Tour of Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles

04/18/2018

Gustavo Turner

A Bukowski tour doubles as a tour of 20th century Los Angeles, through every kind of social landscape. “Buk” (a nickname among his fans, and also how he signed his drawings and sketches) would have appreciated a literary tour as he was a literary tourist himself. “Fante was my god,” he wrote on the introduction to a reissue of Ask the Dust, “…and I knew that the gods should be left alone, one didn’t bang at their door. Yet I liked to guess about where he had lived on Angels Flight and I imagined it possible that he still lived there. Almost every day I walked by and I thought, is that the window Camilla crawled through? And, is that the hotel door? Is that the lobby? I never knew.”

You open your eyes and observe your clothes (Rick Owens or thereabouts) all over the floor. Oops! Vague memories of conversations about the medicinal properties of cucumbers with Devendra Banhart—or was it Father John Misty?—on a waterbed cabana by the heated rooftop pool last night. Maybe you’ll remember later. Maybe you won’t. Doesn’t matter. As your soul sister Tara Reid once wondered, “Why is partying and having a good time bad?”

Eighty Two in the Arts District of Downtown L.A.

Top 5 L.A. Arcades to Get Your Game On

03/13/2018

James McCall

EightyTwo is a popular, full-menu bar in the lauded Downtown L.A. Arts District. One room has video games and the other has a large selection of pristinely kept vintage pinball games. Extra points for the 90s action side scrollers like the Simpsons, Ninja Turtles, and a very rare X-Men game. You can even get down with Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker game. However, the main attraction here is the Street Fighter 2 cabinet that brings loads of good players to the scroll as well as the aging hipster who remembers a few combos. The Street Fighter matches are projected above the dance floor where the amazing DJs spin.

No need to settle for a basket of questionable tater tots when bar-hopping with omnivores. Los Angeles chefs and proprietors are whipping up first-rate plant-based party food for all to enjoy. Educated bartenders can assist with pairings, alerting one to which wines and beers are vegan, too.
