Catch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at the Hollywood Bowl On July 5th head to the bowl for a viewing of Harry Potter with live music by the LA Philharmonic.

Sometimes living in Los Angeles feels like living on a different planet. Drive a few miles west of Rodeo Drive, one of the world’s most expensive shopping locations, and suddenly you’re at the beach. Take a right turn out of Koreatown and suddenly you’re at Staples Center! When you first arrive, you may feel overwhelmed and lost. You’re sure to become familiar with these things you learn in LA after your first year living here. Your Car Becomes Your Best Friend The old stereotype of horrendous LA traffic is true – the city was designed with a much smaller population in mind so the streets can’t handle the amount of cars on the road very easily. You’ll be spending a lot of time in the car, so it’s best to stock up on the essentials. Keep a makeup bag, hand sanitizer, snacks, and chargers on hand. You never know when an impromptu date or audition might pop up and you don’t have time to run home! “Let’s Do Lunch” is Code At a networking event and someone asks to grab lunch with you?

You may be confused at first, but eventually you’ll learn the language and maybe even find yourself saying one of these six things you only hear in LA. “Can I share your Westside rentals login?” Westside Rentals is hardly glamorous, but every twenty-something desperately searching for a somewhat affordable apartment has used this site to find their next home. There’s a fee to sign up for the site, but splitting with your roommate/friend who just moved/kind strangers is a common way to cut down on costs. More in your budget for splurges at Eataly! “Just take the 10!” The 10 and the 405 are some of the most famous roadways in the United States (get out of here, Route 66), mostly because of local’s affinity for referring to them as THE 10 and THE 405. Once you start, it’s impossible to stop! “Can I get a decaf, soy, gluten free, free-range…” Here in LA, health is everything. Buying organic, free-range food may seem like a stereotype of snooty LA […]
