Since I'm new here I didn't know if this should go in a new thread or not, but I'm wanting some suggestions to plan my day trip to L.A. up from San Diego.
I'm headed up on Saturday, July 23rd to attend that day's Tiki Makeke.
Since it's open from 10AM to 3PM, and on Saturday's Oceanic Arts is open from 10AM to 1PM, I was thinking of going to OA first and then to TM for lunch.
After TM I figured on checking out the Picture Show Gallery (https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-picture-show-seal-beach) but I'm not sure of their hours yet.
Tiki Farm in San Clemente is closed on Saturdays.
With headed first to OA and then back 20 miles south to Don's, I don't think it makes sense to zigzag back north 35 miles again to hit Tiki Ti in the evening, even though I very much want to go.
So I'm thinking for this particular day, I need to keep to the south end of LA.
Downey: Bob's Big Boy Broiler (http://www.downeyca.org/gov/cd/ed/projects/bobs_big_boy_broiler.asp), World's oldest McDonald's (http://www.downeyca.org/visitors/attractions/mcdonalds.asp)
Anaheim: Trader Sam's (http://www.disneytouristblog.com/trader-sams-disneyland-bar-review/)
Huntington Park: Norm's on Slauson (http://normsrestaurants.com/huntingtonpark.html) although I guess the one on La Cienega in LA is "the" location? plus it's at the edge of the "I don't want to zig zag across LA" idea
It'll be my brother and I, and since we're getting to town at 10, and have to drive back, we can't exactly drink our way across the county and get ripped.
I saw this thread here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29661&forum=1 but from the map it looks like most of the places are in LA proper?
edit1: ah hah! Definitely will check out the Royal Hawaiian apartments! http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28178&forum=2
