I haven't been to LA as an adult except for a brief job interview. I've been trying to think of things that i'd want to see (aside from friends) or do there, and i'm drawing a blank. My understanding is that LA is supposed to have attractions other than legalized poker. Do you people know what those attmight be?
I'm staying at the Montebello Best Western, which is cheap, has free internet access, and is convenient to the Commerce Casino (and not too far away from the Bicycle Casino).
