17. We're secretly super psyched about becoming a food mecca
It used to be that King’s Hawaiian and Gardena’s plethora of ramen outposts were the only great things to eat in the South Bay. But those days are long gone. M.B. Post, Hudson House, The Strand House, Little Sister -- hell, even The Standing Room -- are just a few of the places that are turning the South Bay into a dining hotspot that the rest of LA is paying attention to, which means big crowds, long waits... and, let's be honest, for us, a lot less driving.
18. The beginning of summer is the worst time to go to the beach
Poor school kids. Their first days of freedom are in the midst of June Gloom, and that struggle is real. The actual best time to go to the beach? Usually right when kids are heading back to school, since that’s when that morning fog is finally mostly dissipated, which sucks for them but is great for you. Someday, children. Someday.
