Say Hello to Heaping Portions of Hawaiian Food at Aloha Cafe

May 20, 2015 9:00 am

Hawaiian transplants adore Aloha Cafe, where they say they can indulge in authentic, well-prepared Hawaiian fare specialties. The portions here are enormous, regulars say, definitely big enough for two people to share, even if both are hungry. Try the kalua pork, the loco moco, the French toast, the aloha breakfast, or the kal-B chicken. If you’re craving a Hawaiian specialty that’s not on the menu, don’t hesitate to ask: sometimes the staff can come through with a special order. In fact, many customers appreciate the friendly “aloha spirit” of the servers, who are known to go out of their way to make customers feel at home.

Aloha Cafe can get pretty busy and you might have a short wait for a table, but it’s usually not very long. Don't forget to get your parking validated before you leave!

Take In the Los Angeles Skyline With a Visit to These Must-See Attractions

May 13, 2015 9:00 am

Los Angeles is one of the leading artist communities in the world. After visiting one of these must-see attractions, you're sure to find a bit of inspiration of your own.

The Getty Center
From the moment you board the hovertrain in the parking lot, Los Angeles's Getty Center will leave you in awe. Peacefully walk through its gardens or along the terrace, admiring an immaculate view of LA. Stroll through the many art galleries, which feature all sorts of world-famous paintings and drawings by Van Gogh and other 19th and 20th century artists. Take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy a bite to eat before heading to the gift shop, and watch an entire day pass by at this mega-center of the arts.

Griffith Observatory
Visible from the valley below, the Griffith Observatory is one of Los Angeles's most legendary attractions. The observatory is located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood, and the goal of this institution is to inspire patrons to learn about and understand the sky above them. Guests can enjoy a show in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, where state-of-the-art technologies recreate a beautiful night sky. Once you're done, walk through the surrounding gardens to enjoy the observatory's art deco style from afar.
