8. The Last Bookstore
Pros: ultra cold; Harry Potter. Cons: Danielle Steel; running into your middle-school librarian.
7. The Griffith Park Planetarium
Learn about constellations. Cool in more ways than one. OK, cool in one way.
6. Nic's Beverly Hills
It has a walk-in freezer full of vodka. Ask to just "check it out" and see what they say. And if they say no, just sit with your back against it until they drag you out.
5. Coffee Commissary
Really, if there's any coffee shop in the valley that's not cranking its A/C, let's be honest -- it's gonna end up broke. But this is your best bet.
4. Enterprise Rent-A-Car
Just talk to them about insurance, for, like, half an hour, then "change your mind," and boom. Dim sum time.
