Hi my fellow forumers (patent pending), My wife and I are moving to Los Angeles next month from cold, snowy Toronto. We are really excited, and are even looking forward to the drive. Our plan: we're going to look for a short term lease on an apartment until I start working, and then we're going to move closer to where I work to avoid commuting. My wife will be working from home (I am told that she will be very lucky to not have to commute to work). We're looking to live (and work) in the West Los Angeles area. So I'm looking for any advice anyone can give: -on good restaurants (best sushi, chinese, vietnamese, thai, sandwiches, pizza, bagels, deli, italian, seafood, indian, etc), -cool coffee shops (with internet access), -cool places to hang out (we are in our early 30's) during the day and at night, -a good gym, -the best internet, cable, and phone service (not cell phone though, it's an iPhone FTW for me!), -the best places to shop, - or anything else you can think of. I've been to LA before, and my wife lived there as a kid. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers!
