Bad news, chief, you are going to die. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but definitely two days from now. Before you do though, 1) can we have your BIG JAMBOX when you’re dead?, and 2) make sure you do all 29 of the things on our Long Beach bucket list below.
Around Halloween, the moored ship’s netherparts (including its creepy empty pool) are opened up for ghost-hunting tours and killer mazes. Have a few drinks in the bar and then stumble around hunting the spirits of dead passengers.
Some of the best beer in the country comes via this downtown brewpub, which always has some new, probably-future-award-winning IPA (or stout [or saison]) on draft. Get whatever it is and drink up. (Getting a pulled pork sandwich isn’t necessarily required for this, but you’ll wanna get that, too.)
Sure, you can get a deep-fried catfish or banh chiao at any of the restaurants that dot Anaheim St (aka Cambodia Town), but venture a few blocks off the strip for a bowl of kuy teav at Phnom Penh Noodle Shack (aka The Shack). It’s like Cambodia’s version of pho, except with pork broth that’s filled with all sorts of jiggly, delicious animal bits. Just don’t think about what they are too much.
